Ren Clean & Green Skincare

August 17, 2018

As I get older I have been transitioning my skincare from drug store products to cleaner and greener skincare. Although ingredients are not entirely the most important factor for me, they are definitely a consideration. Especially in terms of their effect on the environment. I've stopped using makeup wipes and switched completely over to the Makeup Eraser which I love/hate but that's for a different day... Ultimately I'm trying to buy and support more clean and green beauty/skincare.

Lately I have been working on reducing how much beauty products I use and throw away. I have been really trying to recycle all my products. Thankfully, I have finally been accepted into TerraCycle's beauty recyling program. The program allows me to recycle skin care, hair care, and cosmetic packaging. This program is pretty amazing because you can recycle lipstick tubes, mascara tubes, eye shadow cases, eyeliner, haircare products, etc. As a smaller beauty enthusiast and dare I say beauty blogger I feel guilty throwing away tubes  of mascara and eyeliner pencils. Now I'm on my way to collecting 10 lbs of cosmetic packaging so TerraCycle can make new recycled products.
 Ren Skincare is a new green brand that I've heard about. They have a goal of zero waste by 2021, which IS INCREDIBLE. Their packaging is 100% recyclable and they are cleaning up beaches/the ocean. I think its amazing that beauty companies like Ren are making a move to be more than a skincare company. Ren also has face and body products which is so exciting!
The Ultra Comforting Rescue Mask is a 10 minute mask for sensitive skin and irritated, or stressed skin. Although I don't have sensitive skin I think stressed out skin is my life. REN uses white mushroom extract which helps reduce irritation to calm the skin. There's also gotu kola and horse chestnut flower extract which help reduce redness and repair the skin. I realllly like this mask, mainly because it has a great consistency and it feels like you're putting a cloud on your face. They suggest putting this mask on for 10-15 minutes but for normal skin 20-30 minutes would be fine too.
Ah, day cream. The first step in my makeup routine. This day cream helps calm, hydrate, and soothe sensitive skin. The thing I like about REN Clean Skincare is that I see this product working for so many different types of skin. Sensitive skin, normal skin, etc. This cream isn't too heavy for everyday wear. For some reason there is something oily-ish to this cream that I don't like. It just feels a smidge too heavy for me.

You can find REN Clean Skincare in the clean at Sephora section, NET-A-PORTER, and Dermastore. I also listed some great sets which would be good for the holiday season. Aside from trying out some new skincare brands I have been busy with school and life. I have been shopping for Xmas like crazy and I might even buy a tree!
