My skincare routine is pretty intense these days and cleansing is integral part of it. I absolutely love the Ren Perfect Canvas Clean Jelly Oil Cleanser as it has three different phases. Ren has definitely been a brand I have always loved and this one is no exception. I love that its a cruelty free and that their packaging is sustainable. I absolutely love their radiance range and this cleanser really impressed me.

I love that its a jelly like cleanser when it starts out. Its best to massage onto dry skin first to really feel the lovely texture its turns into an oil first. I massage all over first before I apply any water that then turns it into a milky consistency. A little really goes a long way and it really melts so beautifully into the skin. Its soothing and leaves skin feeling nourished and hydrated.

As I mentioned earlier  the Ren Perfect Canvas Clean Jelly Oil Cleanser (R565) has got a triple phase action. The cleanser gently washes away pollution, makeup and SPF leaving skin feeling amazing and hydrated. I am a massive fan of oil type products so when the jelly turns into an melting balm it makes me really happy. You can just apply all over your face and over your eyes to remove makeup etc. I do love to use a micellar water after to make sure all my makeup is removed. However if you are feeling a little lazy you can get away with using the Ren cleanser to remove all your makeup before you go to bed.

The Ren cleanser contains only natural ingredients blended with three seed oils: glycerine to comfort and soothe the skin and a base of grape (antioxidant amazing to lock in hydration), sunflower (great for acne) and meadowfoam oils (moisturises and rejuvenates).

Available online on Renskincare.co.za, Absolute Skin (slight discount being offered) and Woolworths. Definitely worth the investment for healthy radiant skin.
