REN is one of my favourite brands when it comes to skincare, they are cruelty-free (yippee!) and produce really high quality formulas that are known to improve the quality of your skin over time. When I found this, the REN Satin Perfection BB Cream which is a part of REN’s radiance range, it was an immediate need for me. As I am someone who has been very fortunate with my skin condition, I never find that I need to use any foundation as I don’t have anything to cover. Although, I do love to wear a good ol’ BB cream to even out my skin tone and give my skin a flawless finish. I find that BB cream’s are also a great deal more moisturising and gentle then some foundations that I have tried, which is another great bonus.
I have been using this BB cream for a while now and have definitely noticed an improvement in the overall condition of my skin. After each use my skin feels very soft and smooth, the product is very gentle on my face and does not cause any irritation at all. This product is not only a BB cream, but also has additional features such as SPF 15, anti-ageing and corrector formula and also acts as an anti-oxidant barrier. Additionally, if you are somebody like me who finds it quite tricky to buy the right shade, this REN product has a shade-adaptive formula meaning that it is genuinely suitable for a range of light to medium skin tones, which is brilliant!
The consistency is quite thick but blends out very well even when just using fingers. I have an oily skin type and this, once blended out, is very matte and smooth on my skin. The product has a very pleasant scent, it almost reminds me of a mild smelling sun cream? It may not be for everyone, but I personally think it smells very clean and fresh which I prefer over some of the sweet-smelling BB creams.
Less is definitely more with this product, if you apply too much then the cream will not sink into your skin well and will feel slightly sticky. On the back of the tube REN suggests that you gently tap the product into the skin for better absorption. After using this my skin appears radiant and even, and most importantly this lasts all day (even on those sweaty summer days..). The price of this product is £28 at Cult beauty and for me it is worth every penny, not only are you getting a great BB cream but you are also receiving all of the additional little bonuses, including SPF 15 and anti-ageing/corrector formula. It is a 50ml tube, but as I said previously a little goes a long long way with this, so it will you last a good while.
