Well over a month ago I came across Beauty Boutique on Instagram; a new(ish) online beauty store. Through conversation, the lovely Ciara sent me the REN Vita Mineral Omega 3 Optimum Skin Oil (€28) to try out. For the last 5 weeks I've been putting this oil through its paces as part of my skincare routine.
I've never tried anything from the REN range so I was excited to get stuck in and introduce this new oil into my routine. First off I love the packaging. We all know if you are a long time reader, I love simple packaging, no frills but pretty and does the job. This has a pump action top which produces just the right amount that you need. I usually go for 1 pump in the morning, and 2 at night. It has a lovely light citrus smell to it, but nothing overpowering and disappears once on the face.
The oil feels great on the skin, with quick absorption and no greasy feeling to it. I don't have to wait around too long before putting on my moisturiser so it hasn't really added much in terms of the length of my routine.
The skin oil encourages skin renewal, reduce signs of wrinkles and replenishes the moisture barrier. I've noticed my skin looks plumper, hydrated and really glowy using this serum, but not in an oily way.
The Omega 3 promotes the cell renewal and restoration of moisture in our skin plus increases the firmness.
Omega 6 and 9 reduces skin sensitivity and soothes the skin. Vitamin A included from the Rose Hip Seed to stimulate natural metabolism of the skin cells. Also contains Vitamin E to fight free radicals and protect from oxidative damage.
Since using this I have picked up a few other REN products to try up after loving the Oil so much, so that's a good indication of how much I liked it.
Pop on over to BeautyBoutique for brands like REN, Essie, Orla Kiely, Pestle & Mortar and so much more.
