REN ClearCalm 3 Clarity Restoring Mask

Sunday, 3 May 2015

Crazy as it sounds, I've made it all the way to my mid-twenties without using any sort of clarifying skincare. I kind of pigeoned holed myself into a dry skin category and have rigidly stuck to a moisturising regime. However, my chin is a hormonal mess. And it's getting worse! It is constantly erupting with blemishes and has some pretty bad scarring. So here I am trying the Ren ClearCalm 3 Clarity Restoring Mask - Exciting times!

I am a big lover of Ren skincare so testing a clarifying product from their line seemed like a good fit for me. Their stuff is free from a lot of nasty products and as far as I know they don't test on animals (which is something I'm trying to stick to). This is just your typical face mask. you slap it on, let it do its magic and after 15 minutes you wash it off. It claims to combat the three causes of breakouts but also soothe and reduce the appearance of scars. Sounds great, right?

Now I don't think this will actually stop breakouts because mine are hormonal. It's the aftercare I'm looking for and on that front this mask delivers. After a couple of tries, I began to notice my skin began to look a lot better and much less volatile.  It even helped with my scars. They are still there but I can see they have faded a little which is awesome! I think the big surprise for me is that I can use this all over my face. I had assumed that it might be too drying for my skin but I slathered all over and it was perfectly fine. In fact applying and wearing this mask is an overall pleasure. It's comfortable and smells amazing. It's a herbal/menthol scent that clears the sinuses and is really refreshing.

As you can tell I love this mask. It worked a treat for my skin. Of course, the drawback is the price. Ren is definitely on the higher end of the spectrum and I think this works out at around €40. A little steep but being shallow and frivolous, that's fine by me!
