REN SKINCARE | PERFECT CANVAS PRIMER

REN SKINCARE | PERFECT CANVAS PRIMER

REN SKINCARE PRIMER PERFECT CANVAS HELLONANCE BEAUTY BLOG

REN Skincare introduced a silicone free primer! There is a lot that I like about this clean skincare line and the NEW Perfect Canvas Silicone Free Skin Finishing Serum is my newest makeup addiction. There is so much though from the name to the packaging to how it feels on my skin! My skin feels like it can breathe. So you have to imagine how excited I was when the mailman dropped off the parcel from REN.

REN SKINCARE PRIMER PERFECT CANVAS HELLONANCE BEAUTY BLOG

Normally I’m not a big fan of primers mainly because the ones I’ve used before are tacky and don’t really do their job. The Perfect Canvas is different. It glides on smooth and silky. It melts into my skin. It does not stick to my fingers. It is not thick and gummy yet it grips my foundation giving me a flawless complexion that lasts for hours! It simply enhances my makeup and improves my skin at the same time. I guess that is why they call it a “serum” instead of a “primer”.

 

REN SKINCARE PRIMER PERFECT CANVAS HELLONANCE BEAUTY BLOG

REN Skincare – Perfect Canvas $55 is a light textured serum. It is made with naturally derived bio-activities (Probiotic Extract for good skin structure – boosting production of essential proteins and enzymes, Alpha-Glucans to keep skin healthy, Agave Extract to naturally prime the skin).

 

WHEN: use 2-3 drops after moisturizer / first step before makeup

I love this liquid serum so much I bought an extra bottle just to carry in my makeup bag. I’m just so excited to find a skincare / makeup product that makes me so happy without makeup. As a new mom sometimes I just don’t have time. But having great smooth skin is better than wearing any makeup! Am I right?!

I have been using REN SKINCARE for some time now. Even before I was pregnant. I like that they use 100% plant and mineral actives which works in harmony with your skin.  As a new Mom-to-be, choosing beauty and skincare products free from parabens, sulfates, mineral oil, petrolatum, synthetic fragrance, synthetic colors, T.E.A, D.E.A, Glycols silicones, Phthalates, PEGS, etc. is very important. Recently REN launched a new line of body products that uses Atlantic Kelp and Magnesium to revitalize, re-energizes and detoxifies the cells in the body!

 

REN SKINCARE KELP MAGNESIUM SKINCARE BEAUTY HelloNance.com Baby Beauty Travel Lifestyle Vancouver Blog

In this new line, REN has added the benefits of Atlantic seaweed and sea kelp to provide an instant boost of hydration and energy. A day long of energy is a bit of a stretch but I do enjoy the pleasurable fragrance as a jolt of aromatherapy in my morning shower using the Atlantic Kelp and Magnesium Anti-Fatigue Body Wash.

  • Kelp – Harvested from the Atlantic, it’s a rich source of both magnesium and calcium. It will hydrate your skin, covering it in a protective barrier to lock in moisture all day long.
  • Magnesium – Magnesium is essential to support the natural functions of the body. Boosting cell energy levels, combating fatigue as well as having anti-inflammatory properties. It is a mineral that is easily absorbed into the skin.
  • Algae – Sustainably sourced from Germany, Algae destresses the skin, supporting your natural sleep rhythm so your skin heals faster.

 

I love getting my hubby to massage my shoulders and back with the Atlantic Kelp and Magnesium Salt Anti-Fatigue Body Scrub before slipping into a nice warm bath. It is particularly efficacious since I have had to sleep on my side now that my 35 week baby belly is the size of a watermelon. My shoulders hurt and my back is sore. The oils from the body scrub would melt instantly moisturizing the body.

And if you have office hands – you know that dry feeling of using too much industrial grade soap and being in the A/C for too long? Then REN’s new Atlantic Kelp and Magnesium Energising Hand Wash and Hand Cream works wonders. It leaves my hands soft for hours and has that fresh awakening scent (that is very mild).

Ren Skincare Review | Clean Plant Base Minerals No Harmful Toxins

Ren Skincare Review | Clean Plant Base Minerals No Harmful Toxins

Ren Clean Skincare Paraben Free plant mineral Hello Nance Beauty Fashion Travel Lifestyle Canada

REN SKINCARE is a clean, natural, plant based and mineral line. It offers a very efficacious and pleasurable application. I was recently introduced to REN and oh my goodness, it has been life changing. To start, I have very thin and sensitive skin. I am Chinese and have fair skin tone with Normal/Dry combination skin type. I’ve been using REN for four weeks and feel I have to share this with you!

REN is pretty amazing. It is formulated with no Parabens, sulfates, mineral oil, petrolatum, synthetic fragrance, synthetic colors, T.E.A, D.E.A, Glycols silicones, Phthalates, PEGS, etc.

The price points are very economical and affordable despite being so effective and gentle!

 

I was looking for a gentle exfoliator without the harsh abrasive feeling. That’s when my friend introduced Ren’s Rosa Centifolia Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser. It is so gentle but super effective and doesn’t irriate my super sensitive and dry skin!

This exfoliator contains jojoba oil to softens, nourishes and deeply hydrates! I love that they have included peppermint oil to cool and sooth. I love the feeling of feeling refreshed! It’s like a wake up call in the morning! It’s seriously amazing. Plus, a little goes a long way!

 

rosa_centifolia_no.1_purity_cleansing_balm_ Ren Clean Skincare Plant Base Nourish No Paraben Toxins Hello Nance Beauty Fashion Travel Lifestyle Canada

Rosa Centifolia No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm: Leaves skin cleans and not stripped pretty much sums this hero product! This rose infused cleansing balm gently melts away dirt and makeup. Even waterproof mascara! I used to want my skin feeling squeaky clean but learnt that it is not the best!

Best of all this cleansing balm is formulated without Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances,  Synthetic Dyes, Petrochemicals, Phthalates, GMOs, Triclosan.

Although REN offers a large size 150ml jar. I prefer the smaller 100ml tube. The squeeze tube is more travel friendly. Plus I won’t contaminate the product with my dirty hands!

Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial: I was initially scared that this mask would be too harsh on my sensitive skin and cause inflammation and redness. But I love how it feels on my skin. It makes my skin feeling fresh and smooth. It does do what it claims: irms, tones, and smooths. My skin feels brightened and glows.

It is formulated with potent water-activated Vitamin C it will neutralize urban grey in a flash, leaving skin looking firm, toned and smoothed, while reducing the signs of fatigue, photo-ageing and skin imperfections.

The product suggests to be used 3 times per week. I would recommend you stick to this and alternate between exfoliating and using this mask. Otherwise, you may overwork your skin too much! And, please don’t leave it on longer that 1 minute. More is not better.

 

Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask: This last product that I picked up from my REN Skincare haul. Similar to Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial it targets to improve skintone texture, firmness, and radiance, while minimizing the appearance of pores and reducing sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and old acne scars.

Since entering my 30’s, my hormonal acne scars takes super long to clear. Almost as long as the next time my period comes. So frustrating! I like this potent bio active peel mask designed to renew the complexion and improve skin tone.

It is like a tropical cocktail of four AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) including glycolic acid from pineapple, lactic acid from passion fruit, citric acid from lemon, and tartaric acid from grape create multi-action exfoliation.

 

Honestly, I’m in love with REN Skincare! I love how gentle it is for my skin. I love how it deep hydrates. After every cleanse, I don’t have that “tightness” and dry patches on my skin. My skin looks brighter, healthier, and more radiant. Most of all, this “clean” efficacious beauty line has a pleasurable application!

 

If you are skeptical on trying a new line, I recommend their Seriously Good Kit C$48. It comes with 3 hero products.

  • 0.5 oz/ 15 mL Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial
  • 0.5 oz/ 15 mL Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream
  • 0.34 oz/ 10 mL Keep Young And Beautiful™ Instant Firming Beauty Shot
  • 0.001 oz/ 0.03 mL Keep Young And Beautiful™ Instant Brightening Beauty Shot Eye Lift
  • 0.5 oz/ 15 mL Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask
