REN Keep Young and Beautiful Anti-Aging Eye Cream review
REN is an under the radar skincare brand that has a growing following of beauty lovers in-the-know. REN products are full of feel-good ingredients and free of parabens, sulfates, mineral oil, petrolatum, synthetic fragrance, synthetic colors, and silicones. Recently I tried the brand new REN Keep Young and Beautiful Anti-Aging Eye Cream. As the name suggests, REN Keep Young and Beautiful eye cream serves as youth regenerating eye treatment. Ingredients like peptides, collagen, ceramide, and alpha-linolelic acid are included to plump, moisturize, and lift the eye. I also noticed that rose water was the first ingredient on the list (see below). REN Keep Young and Beautiful eye cream is packaged in a long pump bottle format, of which I am a fan. The pump makes use hygienic and convenient. The length is great since it only makes a small footprint in my skincare storage basket. The texture of the REN Keep Young and Beautiful eye 'cream' is more like a lotion, but not a serum. As you can imagine, a thick cream can't travel up a pump. It's light and sinks in quickly without leaving much a film. There may be a faint blackberry scent, though it could be my imagination. I can't assess wrinkle improvement, as I have none, however my eye area does look fresh and well rested lately.
Overall, I give the REN Keep Young and Beautiful Anti-Aging Eye Cream ($40 for 0.5 oz.) a thumbs up. I love the pump format and bottle shape. I also like the idea of anti-aging product that has a light feel and can be worn under makeup. I've been reaching for REN Keep Young and Beautiful Anti-Aging Eye Cream everyday and will probably use it down to the last drop. Thanks for reading! Have you ever tried REN skincare products? Do you prefer your eye creams heavy or light? What are your favorites?
