REN Hydra-Calm Global Protection Day Cream
I declared my love for REN Hyrda-Calm cleanser here. I also began using the REN Hydra-Calm Global Protection Day Cream at the same time. Before I started using these products my skin was feeling very sensitive and irritated. I put it down to a change in pregnancy hormones. Products that I had previously loved just didn't seem to be working in the same way. My skin was red, irritated and felt hot. I also had a handful of spots and I never get spots! Within three days of using the REN Hydra-Calm cleanser and day cream my skin felt relieved and soothed and my spots cleared up. I've now been using the products for at least two months and my skin feels amazing!
I have quite normal skin which easily becomes dehydrated and can sometimes becomes dry. I often use moisturisers for sensitive or dry skin, but sometimes I find them a little too heavy and a little too greasy to use in the morning before applying make-up. This is great in that respect. It is quite a light moisturiser compared to others I have used for sensitive skin and it soaks straight into my skin meaning that I can apply make-up straight away. Despite it being quite light it is really moisturising and leaves my skin feeling much more hydrated than many thicker creams. I often suffer from the odd dry patch, especially at this time of the year when there is a sudden change in temperature, but so far so good. I haven't had a single patch.
I love the ethos for REN products. They are a very natural brand and free from a whole host of nasties. I have been reading up on ingredients and trying to use more natural products since becoming pregnant so the brand is perfect for me.
I have already repurchased both products and I plan to repurchase them again. I purchased my last REN products from Marks and Spencer because they had a great deal on at the time.
