I haven’t tried anything from REN before. REN is a brand that touts to use only clean ingredients, so the products don’t have parabens, sulfates, mineral oils, petrolatum, synthetic fragrances, colours, glycols or silicones (among other things). I got the products at Cult Beauty because there was a drool worth goody bag I wanted, and of course, I wanted to try something from REN. I bought the Radiance Perfection Serum 30ml and another serum which I’ll reveal in due time (haven’t tested it yet). So I thought I’d shed light on this radiance boosting serum.
Who hasn’t heard this before? “Please remember to apply your sunscreen every day, even when it’s cloudy outside.”
When I was in my teens, my mom would nag me, every single day. I was mostly frustrated because I didn’t understand why. I’d go “UGH!! yadah yadah yadah, enough already!” When I was studying in Australia, I didn’t apply sunscreen at all. When it was cold, I’d stand in the sun when I’d usually avoid them like a plague. When I came home, my mom noticed I have developed freckles. Truthfully, I thought it was cute. There were only a few. Little did I know, the freckles got worse. Only then, did I know my mom meant well, but it was too late. The freckles stuck with me until now. So whenever someone asked me if I was interested to write about sunscreens, I’d say yes. Ironically, Yadah shoved its sunscreen in my face. LOL!
I reviewed the cleanser and toner last week, so I’ll wrap it up with the moisturizer and eye cream today. We’ve established that Pai uses clean organic ingredients, suitable for those with sensitive skin. I always believe in a good moisturizer and a moisturizing eye cream, and these 2 are not too bad. Omegas are great for our skin and body, and the Pai range of organic moisturizers and eye cream are packed with these essential fatty acids. I like that they have different moisturizers for different skin types, and I chose the one for combination skin.
Today I will bring you a review of 2 of the products in the Pai Cleanse and Tone Starter Kit. They are Pai Rice Plant & Rosemary Bioaffinity Tonic and Pai Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleansing Cream. I bought the kit directly from the website <click here for the link, I am not affiliated> and there was an offer that time where I’d get a complimentary full sized eye cream! Bonus, I thought. I upsized my cleanser to 200ml so for the kit, and for USD$156, I get:
- Pai Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleansing Cream 200ml
- Pai Rice Plant & Rosemary Bioaffinity Tonic 50ml
- Exfoliating Muslin Face Cloth
- Geranium & Thistle Combination Skin Cream (50ml)
- Echium & Argan Soothing Eye Cream (15ml)
For most people, this is an overpriced tinted lip balm. Let me tell you right off the bat that you don’t need this, but I do like it. I used up the whole tube of the original one, and now, using this, I remember why I liked it so much. For one, it’s from my beloved brand Dior. Most of Dior’s products work really well on me, so naturally, I am biased. I thought I wrote about the original one, but apparently I didn’t. Guess I HAVE to write about it now
