Okay, so tell us more!
Each package contains 1.7 ounces of product and retails for $55 per the REN website. This mask is intended to exfoliate using glycolic, lactic, citric and tartaric acids. This potent mask will leave your skin renewed and with better overall tone as well as radiance. It contains quite a few botanical extracts as well, including; passion fruit, grape, pineapple and lemon. What’s most important though, is what this mask DOESN’T include – which are parabens, sulfates, mineral oil, pertrolatum, synthetic fragrances or colors, T.E.A., D.E.A, glycols silicones, and PEGS so you can feel comfortable putting this on your face/
So, we have to say the packaging is super cool. You get a bottle that appears to almost have a bag inside.
There’s a pump that you press to get product out and that even has it’s own little cap, which is really cool
And each package comes with it’s own cloth to wash the mask away once you’re done!
This product smells amazingly like fruit! The texture is smooth and creamy…it’s almost like baby food! To use you simply apply a generous amount to clean skin. Leave it on for ten minutes and then wipe it off with warm water and the enclosed cloth.

This product does say that you’ll experience tingling and while it’s good for all skin types if you are prone to sensitivities this might not be a match for you. When we put this on we did experience a small bit of tingling but nothing crazy and it went away almost immediately. The smell is pleasant and we found it to be a really relaxing experience (we ran a bath while we wore this).
Initially we had a bit of redness but our skin was SMOOTH!!! So amazingly smooth – unlike anything we’ve experienced in our adult life. If you have textured skin and struggle with that.. this is the product for you! There was minimal redness and our skin was left feeling soft, smooth and amazing! So in love with this mask!
