REN Clean Skincare, or REN Skincare as they're more well-known is a skincare brand dedicated to giving you your healthiest complexion without the need for harsh chemicals or toxins.
While we've all seen the "clean beauty" trend all over the news and our Instagram feeds, it can be hard to pinpoint what clean beauty is, which is what REN Skincare is trying to change.
Although clean beauty can be officially categorised as non-toxic skincare, which avoids the use of synethic ingredients and animal by-products, REN is going one step further and ensuring that they are aware of their carbon footprint, and producing products which are both clean and environmentally-friendly. What a brand.
We love all of their skin and bodycare products, but we have selected the top 10 bestselling cleansers, masks and moisturisers to introduce you to the brand and help you switch to a cleaner and healthier beauty regime.
We choose only bio-actives that benefit skin health. With no toxins, no harsh or controversial chemicals, and no potential irritants - ever - REN Skincare

10 of the best REN Skincare products
1.REN Evercalm Overnight Recovery BalmPerfect for sensitive skin, REN Skincare's Evercalm Overnight Recovery Balm is packed with moisturising extracts which repair the skin's natural barrier and alleviate discomfort. It contains a powerful blend of lipids, which help to replenish lost moisture beneath the surface of the skin, alongside jojoba and sunflower oils to strengthen and keep the skin protected against further dehydration and damage. Suitable for all skin types, the balm needs to be applied at night, massaging into clean skin after your cleansing routine until it has been fully absorbed.
2.REN Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA TonicWhen the REN Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic launched, it made waves in the beauty industry. Long gone are the need for harsh scrubs to exfoliate skin thanks to this gentle yet amazingly effective formula. It contains lactic acid to melt away the "glue" that binds impurities together, sweeping them away, along with dead skin cells and excess oil. Willow bark extract helps to minimise the appearance of visible pores for a beautifully smooth and refined complexion.
3.REN Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal MaskOne of the most well-known face masks of all time, and not just for the brand but globally, the REN Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask is great for brightening dulling complexions and exfoliating the skin at the same time. Rich in a cocktail of four AHA's, including lactic, citric, glycolic and tartaric, the mask helps to resurface the top layer of the skin and reveal a smoother, brighter complexion underneath. It's also great to use if you have any form of hyperpigmentation or acne scarring as it helps to reduce their appearance over a prolonged period of time.
4.REN Evercalm Global Protection Day CreamPerfect for sensitive skin, the REN Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream helps to replenish lost moisture, whilst simultaneously shielding against further environmental aggressors which could cause moisture loss. Working to soothe, calm and nourish, the cream reduces irritation, discomfort and redness to reveal a smoother and healthier complexion that feels as good as it looks.
5.REN Radiance Perfection SerumThe REN Skincare Radiance Perfection Serum is great layered underneath your moisturiser when you need a glow injection. Rich in hyaluronic acid to plump and hydrate, glycogen and magnesium to enhance radiance, and Vitamin C to correct pigmentation and even out the skin tone, it's the best skincare weapon against dulling skin.
6.REN Wake Wonderful Night-Time FacialIf you love the thought of an overnight beauty treatment, you will love the REN Skincare Wake Wonderful Night-Time Facial. It contains a powerful blend of actives, which work while you sleep to smooth, refine and illuminate the complexion. There are 3 phases to the treatment, which work in synergy with one another to help your skin rejuvenate. Phase 1 contains alpha-hydroxy acids to exfoliate the top layer of the skin, phase 2 uses omega oils and glycogen to add radiance and revitalise, and phase 3 contains sodium lactate to hydrate the skin and keep it plumped-up, healthy and glowing.
7.REN Perfect Canvas SerumSince the REN Skincare Perfect Canvas launched, it attracted a global interest fueled by beauty blogger and makeup artist hype. Although it's technically classed as a primer, it's so much more than that thanks to its very unique formulation. Rich in bio-actives and natural extracts, the Perfect Canvas rapidly absorbs into the skin to even out and blur away fine lines and wrinkles, whilst also giving a matte finish, which makes it perfect for makeup application.
8.REN Flash Defence Anti-Pollution MistIf you live in a busy city, travel a lot, or just want to give your skin some extra protection against the damaging effects of pollution, you will love REN Skincare's Flash Defence Anti-Pollution Mist. Super lightweight and easy to carry, the mist contains zinc, manganese amino acids and biosaccharide gum to shield the skin against pollutants, whilst keeping it hydrated and radiant throughout the day. We never leave home without it.
9.REN Rosa Centifolia Cleanse and Reveal Hot Cloth CleanserREN's Rosa Centifolia Cleanse and Reveal Hot Cloth Cleanser is perfect if you love the feel of a traditional cleanser, but want to switch to a cleaner and healthier formula. It contains nourishing tryglycerides (derived from cocoa seed butter), which intensely condition the skin and leave it super smooth and soft. The cleanser is great for all skin types, but we find it works especially well on those with dehydrated, dry or sensitive to replenish lost moisture whilst also gently cleansing away impurities and makeup.
10.REN Moroccan Rose Otto Bath OilA bath should be 2 things: relaxing and oh so indulgent. Luckily, the REN Moroccan Rose Otto Bath Oil provides both benefits, as well as nourishing your skin and leaving it super soft and glowing. Made using only a blend of 100% natural fragrances, the REN bath oil is also free from all the common chemical nasties, making it great if you have sensitive skin. It has a beautifully calming and sensual rose aroma, which fills the bathroom and leaves your skin gorgeously scented the day after.
