REN Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA
“This effective, skin-resurfacing toner will exfoliate and brighten your complexion, whilst being gentle enough to use daily. By stimulating the skin to naturally exfoliate, Lactic Acid and Willow Bark extract work together to smooth, tone and help reduce the pore size, while Azelaic Acid precursor will brighten and help to even out skin tone for the perfect glow.”
I saw this product all over social media, and spoken about by Katey Denno so I had to try it. I have to say I love this product. After a week of using it I was raving about it all over my Instagram, and ever after 2 months of use I still love it. I will definitely have this at hand at all times, but my skin is eager to try a different glow inducing product to recommend to you lovely people. To find out why I love this stuff, please keep ready.
This product is made from different citrus and flower oils including Grapefruit Peel Oil and Orange Flower Oil, so it is only suited that the product has an orange tint and smells subtly of oranges. As this is a toner, it has the texture of liquid just like water and any other toner does.
I love this product because it is light enough to use daily, but I started to see results after a few days and definitely after a week of use. This is a light exfoliating product which uses Lactic Acid and Willow Bark to exfoliate the skin. I found that this product really helps with my acne as it reduced the scabbing from cystic breakouts. I suffer from red marks left after a breakout, and this product helped reduce the appearance of this very quickly too. I will say that this isn’t the only thing that helped my acne, I also started taking a Zinc supplement and drinking Beauty Chef Glow Powder. This combination gave my skin a quick and huge turnaround. (Acne blog post coming soon.)
My skin definitely feels resurfaced after using this product twice daily. The acid properties removes dead skin cells and makes my skin glow like a Glossier ad. Even though it is a light acid exfoliation and I have acne prone skin, my skin is not irritated by this product at all. It is important to use an SPF when using a product like this to protect the new skin after dead skin cells are removed, and I also avoid using it under my eyes.
This stuff is so easy to use within any skincare routine and it take a few seconds to use before applying moisturiser. After using, I leave it to dry for about 30-60 seconds before moisturising. When I first started using it I thought my skin felt slightly tacky, but this feeling doesn’t last long and I don’t think this is the case anymore. It also helps remove make-up leftover after cleanser, but I prefer to use it on a clean face.
I have been using this product for 2 months now and though I saw immediate results with this product, I found that they were consistent and didn’t make a huge difference after this. I think my skin is now ready to try something different as I know I’m used to the results of this product. I would say this bottle lasts up to 12 weeks with everyday use twice a day.
