This week, I’ll be giving you the lowdown on the REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask, which is stocked in all our salons & in our PURE Spa Shop online.
What’s the best thing about this product?
As a 21 year old, fine lines & wrinkles are not at the top of my agenda, but I do find that I can often suffer from a serious bout of dullness & lack of radiance! Every woman wants glowing skin, and this product is the best thing I’ve tried for creating a glow in a matter of minutes.
Before a night out, I always whip this out and give my skin 10 minutes of miracle-working so my skin is sufficiently prepped (resulting in less make-up in the process, hurray!).
If the amazing glowing results don’t intrigue you, you might be lured in by the incredibly fruity scent (which smells a bit like apricots). I can never stop breathing in the scent when I use this product.. (same with my friends!)
How do I use it?
It acts as a fruit acid peel, but don’t be scared of the word “acid”! Fruit acids are all the rage in the skin-care industry nowadays – as opposed to traditional abrasive exfoliators which slough away dead skin cells. With these acids, the fruit acids gently remove the dead skin and renew the overall complexion.
After applying a generous amount to clean dry skin, the product is left for 10 minutes to do its thing. After the time is up, it is recommended you use a warm damp muslin cloth/face cloth to gently wipe off the mask, before rinsing off any left-over residue.
Many experts recommend a continued weekly use for a period of a month or so to see the full benefits. Schedule it into your routine!

Great – where can I buy it?!
The REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask is available to purchase on the PURE Spa Shop. It comes from the REN Radiance collection (which incorporates other products, such as: the new Satin Perfection BB Cream, Radiance Perfecting Serum & the Resurfacing AHA Concentrate (another product I swear by!)
N.b: This product is not recommended for those suffering with sensitive skin, as it does result in a bit of tingling on application (which tends to mean it’s doing its job for anyone else with normal skin-types!)
