REN Six of the Best Set- Review

REN is without question one of my very favorite skincare lines for numerous reasons. Chief among them is the fact that they consistently create outstanding products of the highest quality, with the finest ingredients, and without the many harmful chemicals that are routinely used in skincare products. Additionally, unlike many of the more natural products on the market REN products have refined textures that one expects from luxury skincare lines. 

Ren Six of the Best is a Sephora-exclusive ensemble of top-selling facial products, brought to you by Ren. Cleanse, scrub, renew, and repair with this all-in-one kit that will make your skin more healthy and radiant than ever.

This set is the perfect gift for someone who wants to try 6 of the most popular REN products, and I can tell you that this set does not disappoint!

REN products are formulated without Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances, Synthetic Dyes, Petro-Chemicals. These products do not contain TEA, DEA, glycols, silicones, or PEGs.

IV) Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask (0.5 oz) (reviewed here): "A potent bio active peel mask designed to renew the complexion, reduce the appearance of fine lines and dramatically improve skin tone." I love this mask, and have been using it for many years now. It just dissolves dead skin revealing beautiful even-toned skin that is soft, supple, clear, and glowing! I will always have a bottle of this on hand!

  1. What a great set - you get alot for your money. I love REN - there is so much I want to try from them & this would be a fantastic way of doing that

    1. I completely agree with you, Vicky! It really is a phenomenal set, and a good value! I love REN as well- I think that it is simply a superb line! Let me know if you get this and what you think of it!

  2. That is a great looking set. I really like how "clean" the brand is but I find they can be a hit and miss on my sensitive skin x

    1. It is a lovely set, indeed! I agree- I love how "clean" the line is as well. That said- sensitive skin is tricky, and I think it is most often a good idea to stick with the tried and true products that don't trigger problems!! xoxox

  3. Hmmmm...I have heard good things about REN when it comes to skin care. I am thinking of trying it out since I am having troubles with my dry and dull skin. I have tried some products, some are good and not. I hope this could help me too.

    1. I think that REN is an extraordinary line. The cleanser in this set won't be the perfect choice for your dry skin, but the other 5 products should will likely better suit you. It's always worth having a closer look at Sephora.
