REN Max Moisture Concentrate - Review

REN Max Moisture Concentrate was included in a bag given to me after the afternoon tea and facial I had at The Athenaeum. It has been languishing in a plastic box ever since, mainly as the product name suggested to me that it was for parched skin and I have had normal/combination for as long as I can remember....

After using the Origins Brighter By Nature SPF35 Skin Perfecting Moisturiser I felt my skin was feeling quite dry and in particular my cheeks. With the weather changing from cold to hot to cold and back to hot it has been wreaking havoc on my skin, my face has literally been begging me for a moisture injection. This was very apparent when I applied foundation, I could see the foundation clinging on to this dry area of my cheeks and looking like a dried out apple skin.

Whilst checking to see if I had anything that would help this new dryness I came across the Ren Max Moisture Concentrate and thought I would give it a whirl.

REN say - 

A concentrate formulated to dramatically hydrate and replenish the skin leaving it visibly plumped, smoothed and comfortable.


Optimises hydration
Restores softness, elasticity and comfort
Skin looks replenished, smoothed and healthy.

Suitable for all skin types (especially recommended for skin prone to dryness through climates, air conditioning or sensitivity).

Application - Morning and night after cleansing, follow with a moisturiser.

My thoughts

I like the design and the handy pump action glass bottle. The product comes out as a light, fluid texture that instantly absorbs. It has a pleasant, fresh scent. 

I found that as I applied it would feel like it was tightening on my face almost like I was wearing a mask, using a moisturiser after helped ease that feeling. I first tried it at night, next morning my skin felt softer and the appearance of my cheeks had improved a little, it looked less dehydrated. I have been using the REN product for a week now and have seen a great improvement, this is most noticeable when I apply foundation as there is no dry patches for it to cling to. Skin is smoother, feels softer and yes even a bit plumper. I have found this to be a great moisture boost.
