Overnight Facial

I’m pretty happy with my overall skincare regime at the moment – although there are an awful lot of products that I’m using on a regular basis – three of which are these little gems from REN skincare. This trio are what I turn to if I want a really quick and easy overnight boost to how hydrated and radiant my skin is.

After removing make-up at night and cleansing skin (current favourites for this are a combo of Clinique Take the Day of Cleansing Balm, Biore Combination Skin Cleanser and Bioderma – see, told you the number of products is excessive). The I apply the Resurfacing AHA Concentrate all over my face and neck, followed by the Omega 3 Night Repair Serum. 
The AHA Concentrate smells really good (a little like the orange flavour of calpol) and can feel a little bit (very little bit) tingly when applied. The Omega 3 Night Serum is quite an oily feeling liquid – and leaves a sheen/residue on the skin – hence why only overnight.  By morning it has completely absorbed and skin feels amazing.
I also ad the Active 7 Radiant Eye Gel around the eye area. It’s a very light gel that absorbs really easily and leaves the skin around the eyes feeling refreshed. Of the three products this is the one I could go without, but like it to feel like I’ve done a complete face routine – but the other two are absolute loves and my skin never fails to feel better after using these over night. 
At the moment I’m using these once or twice a week for a boost and I can’t get enough – so impressed with REN skincare I definitely need to try more. I’d recommend checking these out if you have dry/dehydrated skin or want a radiance boost.

    I’ve read people saying they like the AHA concentrate better than the the Liqui Gold. Being a LG junkie I can’t believe such blasphemy! Have you ever tried it? xx

    Thanks for the tip.

    fantastic review! Do you suggest these for oily skin?

    From reading this, you use two products that I love and use regularly (CLinique Cleansing Balm and Biore Cleanser) so I’m guessing we may have similar skin types. This makes reading posts like this much more intersting 😀 I’m very tempted to trawl back through your posts to see what else might help perfect my routine!
