One of my favourite skincare companies is REN, which is known for using only 100 per cent plant and mineral-derived ingredients. The company’s philosophy is to not use synthetic fragrance, mineral oil, sulfate detergents, synthetic colours, animal ingredients and parabens.
REN has an amazing variety of product offerings, so it’s hard to choose which to buy! One of REN’s best-selling collections is its Moroccan Rose Otto series, derived from warm rose. The collection is complete with a body wash, body cream, bath oil, body polish and body oil.
My favourite is the Moroccan Rose Otto Ultra Moisture Body oil, which is so deeply hydrating that my dry skin just drinks it up. It locks in moisture, restores elasticity and gives skin a healthy glow. It also protects against signs of premature ageing.
Another must-have product is the Satin Perfection BB Cream, a silicone-free cream that gives skin a flawless coverage without leaving it greasy. It gives skin a nice glow (perfect for mornings when you need to look fresh, but don’t feel fresh). The multi-functional cream covers imperfections, gives SPF and anti-oxidant protection while working to tone and firm.
REN products are available exclusively at Skins Cosmetics. The Moroccan Rose Otto Collection will be available as of September, 2013.
