REN Bio Retinoid Anti-Ageing Concentrate serum review
REN is a plant-based skincare line with a growing following of in-the-know beauty lovers. Their products are full of feel-good ingredients and are free of parabens, sulfates, mineral oil, petrochemicals, synthetic fragrance, synthetic colors, and silicones. Today I have the REN Bio Retinoid Anti-Ageing Concentrate to share with you. After all, what could be better than a moisturizing serum to pamper your skin on these cold winter nights? The serum contains bio-extracts including 100% naturally derived Vitamin A, pro-Vitamin A, and Retinoid analogue; these elements are thought to combat the appearance of wrinkles, imperfections, and age spots.
The REN Bio Retinoid Anti-Ageing Concentrate serum is oil-based and has a nice olive oil and marmalade/peach scent. It's best to take a few drops of serum, warm it on your palms, and gently pat it onto your skin. The finish is warm and comfortable; it's not a fast-drying serum. There is a layer of oil that leaves skin looking dewy, so you could conceivably skip a moisturizer.
Ingredients Rosa Rubiginosa seed oil, Glycin soja (soybean) oil, Gossypium Harbaceum (cotton) seed oil, Bidens pilosa extract, Hippophae rhamnoides fruit extract, Parfum*, Linum Usitatissimum (linseed) seed oil, Tocopherol, Linalool. *100% Natural Fragrance
The REN Bio Retinoid Anti-Ageing Concentrate ($60 for 1.02 oz.) is a nice nightly retinoid treatment for skin. The moisturizing finish of the serum makes it appropriate for normal to dry skin, and nice for winter. When my parents stopped by to visit, my dad decided he liked it, so this little bottle went home with him. It's hard to get him to use any skincare whatsoever, so I think that says something. Thanks for reading! Have you tried REN skincare? What are your favorite products from the line? What nightly serums have you been using lately?
