When an expectant mum couldn’t find decent skincare products that didn’t make her sensitive skin react, her husband decided to take matters into his own hands and, along with his business partner, created a range where every product utilised bioactive and natural ingredients that were gentle but effective. And that is how REN skincare came to be. That was 22 years ago and REN is now a global success and while the ranges have expanded, the core values have stayed the same alongside the brand’s want and need to be as kind to the planet as possible. All of the product packaging is recyclable, reusable or contains recycled materials.
And now REN is launching into Boots - starting online from 5 July 2022 and in-store from September. So you can get your hands on their iconic products (and Boots points) even more easily than ever before. What's more, as part of the launch, you can get the iconic Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic 100ml FREE when you spend £35 (until stocks last).
Here is our pick of the best buys from REN at Boots.
One of the first liquid exfoliators to come to the beauty shelves it has won countless awards. It contains a combination of lactic acid that gently exfoliates and adds moisture, as well as Salicin, which helps tighten pores and make skin smoother. Sweep over clean skin at night and wake up to a glowy complexion.
This gorgeous, silky moisturiser is seriously hard-working. Not only does it contain antioxidants to help protect the skin, hydrating omegas and skin-caring vitamins that soften and replenish that are suitable for all skin types, but its texture makes it the perfect base for make-up.
On nights your skin needs some extra TLC this buttery balm is what you need. A little goes a very long way as it melts into the skin allowing the lipid-rich oils to nourish, jojoba and sunflower complexes to hydrate and strengthen and a clever ingredient called beta-glucan that helps calm any sensitivity.
Sensitive skins can find they don’t tolerate a lot of brightening ingredients well, which is why this eye cream is so special because it’s packed full of sensitive skin-appropriate ingredients that won’t aggravate such as elderberry flower extract. It has a light, almost gel-like texture that sinks in quickly and users have reported a difference in dark circles in just seven days.
If pigmentation is your beauty bugbear then you need this night cream in your life. It contains an algae complex that targets hyperpigmentation without lightening the rest of your skin. As well as that it is super hydrating and instantly makes skin look more recharged and refreshed.
