Haul: REN Skincare

Man was I naughty with this one, but I've been stalking REN's website for months waiting for a deal to jump on. I can't exactly remember what the deal ended up being when it came out around Black Friday, but I had ordered my wishlist within moments of getting the email. Here's a bit of a story before getting into the products. I eagerly awaited my package and when it finally got here, the delivery man delivered it to my apartment's office. Meaning I had to wait until the morning to get it from them. Oddly enough in my mailbox was a hand-addressed package with two large REN samples inside and no note. The return address was to REN and I was incredibly confused. I just assumed they had forgotten to include the samples I chose in the package. When I got the package the next morning, there were two more smaller samples inside it! I'm not sure if this is common practice or a happy accident, but I'm even happier than I knew I would be!

So on to the products. The product that started this whole crazy obsession with getting REN products was the Invisible Pores Detox Mask. I saw this time and time again in the beauty blogging world and I had to have it. Plus I thought it could also really help my boyfriend Alex and his really large pores that just can't seem to stay free of dirt. I can't wait to slather this stuff on my face tonight and bask in the fact that I actually own it now.

I've been fascinated by cleansing milks since I first started getting more into skin care earlier in the year. I heard (of course) great things about REN's Evercalm Gentle Cleansing Milk and just had to give it a go. I'm eager to see what it's like and I'll definitely be reporting back to you!

The last product I purchased I think was to more or less meet the requirement for the deal, but I still had my eye on it regardless for a potential future purchase. Wanting to branch out from my Body Shop Vitamin C Facial Cleansing Polish (which I still completely love), I opted for the Rose Centifolia Foaming Cleanser partially because of the rose factor and mostly because the foaming aspect intrigued me. One thing about the Body Shop cleanser that frustrates me is that it doesn't lather all that well. I'm curious to see how this one works!

The samples have me incredibly excited too. I really wanted to try the F10 Smooth and Renew Mask and with the two samples I received I have about half the ml of the original product without having to pay the $37. Needless to say, I'm just excited. REN has finally entered my life and I find myself wanting to wash my face way before bedtime!

What is your favorite REN product?

There's still time to enter my Holiday Giveaway! It ends on December 25, 2013!

    1. I've been looking at REN products for ages. They are just too expensive to buy them on a regular day. The deal definitely helped make it finally happen!
