Who knew going green could make you beautiful? REN is a plant-based ingredient skincare line, which promotes effective products at no cost to the environment. RadarOnline.com sampled one of their fruit-based, chemical-free products, the Glycolactic Skin Renewal Peel Mask ($55), which promises to “rejuvenate skin without redness or irritation” by “loosening dead skin cells for removal.”
After applying a thick layer of the orange gel on our face, we sat back and let the fruit do the work (ingredients include Passion Fruit, Lemon, Grape, Mexican Papaya and Pineapple). The mask had a tingly, but non-irritating effect on the skin, and smelled delightful. After 10 minutes, we washed the mask off with cold water, and just as promised, our skin felt clean and smooth. Days later, the result was still visible: the skin felt soft and appeared less color-spotted.
