I have combination/oily problem skin, I am very prone to breakouts and redness and my skin does not like harsh products. I have been struggling to find a cleanser that does not dry my skin out too much, cause a breakout and make my skin all tight and uncomfortable until I found this!
Fed up with my current cleansers and the way my skin felt after cleansing I sat down one night and browsed the internet in search of a saviour! I have heard good things about REN products and was drawn to their EVERCALM range. Free from ingredients such as parabens, sulphates, mineral oil, synthetic colours and fragrance (which my skin hates!) I thought I would give it a try. A nice gentle product free from lots of ingredients that my skin does not react well to.
I bought my cleanser from Cult Beauty, it cost £16 exc delivery and arrived within a couple of days.
I was excited to try it and couldn’t wait to take my make up off and give it a whirl!
The cleanser has a rich creamy texture and the product sinks into your skin as you gently massage before rinsing with warm water. You don’t need any more than 1 pump of product as it goes a long way.
After just my first use I didn’t get any tightness or drying, my skin felt soft and smooth (even my breakouts!) and I looked refreshed, I was impressed!
I used it the next morning and again it left beautifully soft, smooth, clean skin. I completed the rest of my skincare routine as normal. I then applied my make up and my foundation went on so much better than normal, it glided over my skin. It had to be the cleanser that changed the way my foundation was sitting as it was the only thing that had changed in my routine.
I’ve been using this product for nearly 2 months now and there has definitely been a reduction in my redness, I’m still getting breakouts but no more than normal so it hasn’t made me breakout either. Even my toner isn’t making my skin dry out or be uncomfortable which it had been previously.
Overall I’m impressed with this product and can’t wait to try more from this range. My favourite aspect has to be how soft and clean my skin feels and looks. I will definitely be re purchasing after I’ve finished this bottle and it may become one of my holy grail products.
