I have been using REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask once a week. The orange-coloured gel mask is very sticky, with a sweet fruity orange smell, in fact it reminds me very much of rubbing orange Calpol on my face (do they still do orange Calpol?)! Once on the face the mask should be left for 10 minutes – do not open the bathroom door to anyone during this time, a sticky orange face is not a good look!
REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask comes with a little muslin cloth which you then use to gently remove the mask after 10 minutes. The box says that you may experience some tingling whilst the mask is on – I didn’t experience this, but my face did feel a little bit itchy. I suspect that the tingling would be caused by the high amount of natural fruit acids in the mask, these are the ingredients which makes your skin shed its old cells but they can make skin sensitive (and more sensitive to sun). Therefore I would suggest you avoid this mask if you have sensitive skin, and ensure you apply a moisturiser that contains SPF after using it.
Apply a generous amount onto clean skin over the face and neck, avoiding the eye area. Leave for 10 minutes. Dampen a cloth and gently wipe off mask. Rinse skin with warm water. Slight tingling may be experienced during application. Use weekly. Not recommended for sensitive skin or freshly shaven skin.
