As a recent fan of REN products I was delighted when I was asked to test their latest product, Flash Hydro-Boost... and what a gorgeous product it is!
Here is my review posted last month on REN's website:
"As a make-up artist great skin is imperative to me, as it makes the application of make-up easier and helps to intensify the final make-up look! Within the last year I have become a huge fan of REN products and so was delighted to be selected as one of the first people to try this new product - it has not disappointed!
I have been using the product morning and evening after cleansing for about a week and already I feel that my skin stays hydrated for longer. The cream has a smooth, creamy texture and lovely flowery scent. The product soaks in well and does not leave a greasy residue. After using Flash Hydro-Boost I don't have to use as much moisturiser to get the final hydrated, well moisturised effect that I like and in turn, my make-up goes on really well.
My skin feels like it has had a 'boost' - it feels firmer - at 42 years of age long may this continue! Will I be adding this to my 'must have' skin care routine products? I'm not sure, the jury is out at this early stage but it will be interesting to review the effect after 6 months of use. "
One month later and I'm still loving the product. I don't use it everyday, if I'm honest I don't always remember to use it, but when I do my skin is definitely thankful for it and for someone who suffered with eczema in her 20's I know that my skin in thinner and drier in areas and so welcomes the extra boost of hydration that this product gives it.
If you like a bit of science then please take a look at this Blog post on REN's website. I particularly like the fact that the product contains Hyaluronic Acid, as it's "one of the skincare superstars and helps to retain over 1,000 times its weight in water within the cells of the skin. The reason Hyaluronic Acid bonds so well with water molecules is it’s jelly-like consistency. This helps to increase skin smoothness, softens and decreases wrinkles." Who doesn't want less visible wrinkles!?!
With winter months approaching I think I will be using this product more and more!
If you try the product let me know what you think, I would love to hear how you get on.
