REN Rosa Centrifolia No1 Purity Cleansing Balm
My fascination with cleansing balms thankfully isn’t getting tiresome. It’s by far my most favourite type of cleanser – quick, easy, effective and a mini facial rolled into one.
When REN sent me their newest cleansing balm in the form of their Rosa Centrifolia Cleansing Balm, I did clap my hands rather excitedly. I could feel it in my waters that this would be a good ‘un.
Some of you may have noticed this cleansing balm was my product of the week on Grazia Beauty recently. I know REN has a sterling reputation for understanding skin care plus their products are free of the nasties so naturally I gravitate towards these factors.Its no-fuss packaging takes a back seat – it would seem REN prides itself on the actual product rather than how fancy it looks in your bathroom cabinet.
Suitable for all skin types, the cleanser is thick in consistency and softly infused with roses, which not only smell wonderful but acts as an anti-inflammatory, helping to soothe irritated skin. It emulsifies into a rich milk with warm water and breaks down the particles of make-up which can be rinsed off. My preference is to wipe it off with a warm flannel, which is far more satisfying. Extremely kind and gentle to the skin, it leaves my skin feeling baby soft and glowing, not to mention spotless.
I like the fact it’s in a big tube so you only squeeze out as much as you need and of course it’s more hygienic than dipping your fingers in a pot. It’s also convenient for travelling.
Cost wise you’re looking at shelling out £23 for 100ml – reasonably priced than some of the leading cleansing balms on the market and equally as high performing, if not better. Thank you, REN for putting your heart and soul into creating this cleansing balm – this is going in my top three for sure.
