Ren Glycolactic Skin Renewal Peel Mask

Brand: Ren

 Glycolactic Skin Renewal Peel Mask

Price: $55

Link To Product: Sephora

What It DoesThis treatment safely and effectively resurfaces the skin, without causing irritation. Its four-fruit-acid-complex (lactic, glycolic, tartaric and citric) and papain enzyme create a gentle-yet-potent exfoliating action that leaves skin glowing and healthy.

Scent: Bubble gum & Citrusy

Texture: Thick Gel

Review: I think Ren is definitely one of those underrated beauty brands -- they actually have really great products but hardly ever get exposure.  

This is a very interesting product in that it's both a peel and a mask.  
The thick gel-like texture smells like a mixture of bubble gum and citrus -- I would not call it pleasant at all.  You apply it to your face like a mask and leave it on for 10 minutes.  There's a slight tingling but it doesn't burn like a peel although it definitely is a peel as it contains lactic, glycolic, tartaric and citric acids.

After 10 minutes you wash it off with a wash cloth.  My face was a little pink but no real irritation.  After a few days my cheeks started to peel slightly but nothing a little moisturizer couldn't fix.  Afterwards my skin was glowing and luminous.  

This mask is recommended for congested skin as well as acne scars, blemishes, blackheads, and sun damage.  I think it's perfect for those of you who wanted to try a chemical peel but want to try out something gentler first.  This is safe and perfect to apply at home while getting similar to salon effects.
