Last week I shared my recent beauty box purchase from Feel Unique here. The box contained four cult skincare products that I’ve wanted to try out for a while. The one I was looking forward to the most is the Ren Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial. This has been creating a lot of buzz since it launched last year.
This product claims to combat urban grey and dullness in a minute which is quite a claim. The texture of this is not what I expected, it’s a blue tinted mask with a watery texture and a very fine gritty feel. I used about two teaspoons to cover my whole face. I applied this to clean dry skin and I could feel the fine grit on the skin. You massage this in for a bit and then dampen fingertips and massage it again to activate the vitamin C. With damp fingers the product emulsifies into a thicker creamier texture on the skin. You can leave this for a minute and then rinse it off.
The main ingredients in this is coconut alkanes which is moisturising and the Ascorbic Acid which is the Vitamin C. It also contains Boswellia Carterii Oil and Serrata Extract which claims to help diminish signs of fatigue and smooth fine lines. The full list of ingredients are below.
I washed this off and my skin definitely looked brighter and perkier. I know perkier isn’t a scientific benefit but my skin definitely felt more plump and looked clearer. I was impressed seeing a difference after one go. The product says you can use this three times a week but on my sensitive skin I’d probably only use it once a week. I’d be nervous of over exfoliating with this one even though the grit in this is quite fine.
Now this isn’t a cheap product at €38 in stores. It’s a bit pricier on Feel Unique due to exchange rates with sterling at the moment. But as a treat before a big night out once a week I think it’s a good investment. I’d love to know what you think of this if you’ve tried it out.
