Product: Glycolactic Skin Renewal Peel Mask
Link To Product: Sephora
What It Does: This 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.
