REN Instant Firming Beauty Shot- Review
Friday, 13 Mar 2015
I have another amazing new release for you today, which will be available in store on Monday the 16th March.
I am a huge fan of REN Skincare, I love the unique scents of each range, the great quality ingredients and the broad range which cater for every skin type. As well as their philosophy of CLEAN SKINCARE (scroll all the way down for all the nasties they DON’T have). I think a true test of brand love is whether you receive products from a brand to review, or whether you also buy the brand yourself. And REN is a brand that I buy on a regular basis and is core to my skincare routine. I am also very lucky to receive products from REN to review, such as this Beauty Shot!
Beauty Shot is a gel-serum that instantly firms, lifts and plumps the skin to leave it looking dramatically smoother, tighter and more youthful. A liquid matrix of Hyaluronans supercharges the skin with firming moisture and encourages elastin synthesis to firm and remodel the skin over time.
I love the scent of this product, I can’t quite place it, but it smells heavenly! It is a gooey liquid that you apply to clean skin, before your moisturiser. What is great about this product is you can also apply it over your moisturiser or makeup throughout the day. It comes with a handy dropper, and you only need two or three drops. I press the product into clean skin, and if I am applying over makeup I pat it on. You can immediately feel the plumpness and firmness. It applies a bit tacky and sticky, but is quickly absorbed. My skin feels a bit tight after applying it, but I like that effect, it feels like I just had a facelift. Besides the visible physical effects of this product, the skincare benefits are amazing! My skin feels plumped and hydrated, and the best part is this product is suitable for all skin types. I have been going through a course of chemical peels, and hydration is key. You can read about my post peel experience, as well as my experience with another range from REN here.
If you like the technical behind this effective product keep reading!The ScienceInstant Firming Beauty shot is formulated with a liquid matrix of Phycocolloids and two different Hyaluronans. The Hyaluronans work together to produce both short and long term improvements in skin firmness. Hyaluronan 1 acts as a cell messenger focused on improving cell cohesion leading to an instant tightening and lifting effect. Hyaluronan 2 works deeper down in conjunction with dermal fibroblasts to boost elastin synthesis and improve long term skin firmness.The ResultSkin looks dramatically lifted, firmer and more youthful.I can definitely attest to the results!
Beauty Shot retails for R450 until end April, as part of the launch, and R475 from 1 May 2015. The bottle is 30ml, and you literally only use two or three drops, making this product great value for money. Who needs filters and Beauty Face mode, when you can get all this from a bottle!
