PRODUCT REVIEW:REN CLEAN SKINCARE AHA SMART RENEWAL BODY SERUM
June 20, 2019
Just say lactic acid and you got my attention. Last fall, I saw the announcement of the REN AHA body lotion and I was giddy. Every day I would go to the website in anticipation of the launch. Finally! It launched and I couldn’t swipe fast enough.
When it arrived I must admit I was a little disappointed with the packaging. There was little to no direction on the pack in terms of how to use, etc. However that didn’t dissuade me completely, I picked up the phone and contacted the representative who was sweet and knowledgeable enough to answer all my pressing questions. I felt comfortable to proceed my test knowing that it had 5% lactic acid in the formula and it was to be used as a treatment not necessarily on a daily basis. It’s been three months and the verdict is in.
REN CLEAN SKINCARE AHA SMART RENEWAL BODY SERUM (CLAIM)
A moisturizing body serum with AHA that work with the skin to naturally exfoliate, leaving skin radiant with natural glow.
XYLITOL: it is a humectant and air-conditioning agent. It acts as a humidifier, drawing moisture from the air for skin absorption. Some manufacturers also cited a soothing and anti-microbial action. Xylitol is a naturally occurring sugar in birch bark and a range of fibrous fruits
LACTIC ACID(5%) A multipurpose ingredient used as a preservative, exfoliant, moisturizer, and to provide acidity to a formulation. Research shows that continuous use of products formulated with 5-12 percent will provide a mild to moderate improvement in fine lines, promotes softer, smoother skin.
PRO-BIOTIC EXTRACT: strengthen skin’s barrier and promotes the shedding of dead skin.
HOW TO USE IT
The recommendation from the REN skincare account rep. was to use it every other day, so two to three times a week especially if you have sensitive skin. For less sensitive skin types, it could be used more frequently.
I tried both ways. I used it twice a week under my Vitamin C lotion
during the day and at night time under a light body oil. Another week I increased my usage up to four times a week. I honestly didn’t feel any increased sensitivity either way. It felt really gentle on the skin however I would recommend as a general rule everyone should start of slow.
HOW LONG DID I TEST THE PRODUCT?
March to June 2019
WHAT DOES IT SMELL LIKE?
Not a fan. First, it was a really runny consistency so it would have been easier to manage in a pump bottle. The cap was really stiff and difficult to close. Now this may just be a problem with my own tube but I had to mention it.
Every skin type
Please read the ingredient list above for possible allergen/fragrance that may not be appropriate for your skin type. If you have any questions send a message to the aesthetician on the website.
Very Satisfied = 5, Satisfied = 4, Neutral =3, Dissatisfied = 2, Very Dissatisfied = 1, N/A = Void Response
Fantastic on the KP on my upper right shoulder.
Absorbs fast making it easy for you to apply your lotion over it.
No irritation or redness CON
Price: its expensive. There are more affordable and effective options if you are looking for a lotion with lactic acid lotion.
There was no detailed how to instructions on the pack or website.
