REN Evercalm Range VS. Post Chemical Peel Issues
Friday, 6 Mar 2015
I don’t have sensitive skin, and I definitely don’t have redness issues. So when I received a press drop from REN which included three products from their Evercalm Range for sensitive skin, I pushed them to the side, and dived into the other products such as the REN Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial and the V-Cense Range.
Enter my current skin issue: I have been going through a series of chemical peels, and after my last peel, a 50% peel my skin was red, bumpy and itchy for a couple of days. I immediately sifted through my “To Review Stash”, and found these three skin saviours!
REN Evercalm Anti-Redness Serum reduced my redness and irritation and was so soothing! It also addresses ageing, score! This product, formerly known as Hydra-Calm Youth Defence Serum protects, replenishes and visibly improves skin tone to keep sensitive skin looking younger for longer. I used this twice daily, and my skin had recovered in a couple of days. It retails for R620 for 30ml, and is well worth it if you suffer from sensitive irritated skin. I have been using the serum twice daily, and it definitely calmed my skin! The results according to REN are listed below:
Reduces inflammation, redness, and irritation.
Strengthens the capillary walls.
Boosts cell lifespan and hydration levels.
Protects cells, reduces UV induced inflammation and supports good bacteria.
Keeps skin looking younger for longer.
REN Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream combined with the serum really helped my skin get back to normal after my 50% chemical peel. My skin was left soothed and hydrated, no redness or itchiness in sight! Formerly known as Hydra-Calm Global Protection Day Cream, it is formulated to leave sensitive, reactive skin optimally hydrated, calmed, soothed and protected this moisturizer combats the feeling of chronic discomfort, redness and sensitivity that can lead to premature ageing and ensures skin glows with renewed health. It is R460 for 50ml and has an impressive list of benefits listed below:
Hydrates and replenishes.
Skin feels calmed and soothed.
Protects against free radicals and environmental aggression.
Combats the signs of premature ageing.
Trains skin to be less sensitive.
Lastly, REN Evercalm Gentle Cleansing Milk. The day of my peel my skin was super-sensitive, yet it still needed to be washed before bed time. I used this cleanser and it calmed my skin down completely. I would describe it as a rich creamy balm, I massage it onto my dry skin, and then add water, massage some more, and then rinse. It is so luxurious, and has a pleasant scent. Formerly known as Hydra-Calm Cleansing Milk, this gentle cleansing milk leaves sensitive, delicate and reactive skin purified, calm and soothed. Its multi-action formula eliminates environmental aggressors, increases skin resistance and minimises the signs of chronic irritation and sensitivity that can lead to premature ageing. This cleanser is R325.00 for 150ml, and is so creamy so you only use a tiny amount, definitely worth it! REN definitely hits the mark with this one, creamy and gently while still cleansing really really well.
Gently removes dirt, pollution and make up.
Skin feels purified, calm and soothed.
Minimises the feeling of sensitivity.
Combats the signs of premature ageing.
