I have to say I'm really impressed with this moisturizer! I have very picky skin (dry, eczema prone, etc.) but this actually calmed it down, rather than paving over damage. One of the frustrating things about sensitive skin is the lack of scents in "safe" products- this has a delicate orange/sage smell, without perfumes. It does sit more heavily on the skin though, so I usually save it as a night cream and after masks. But I have very dry skin, so I wouldn't recommend it for normal/oily complexions. Overall, this is a great product for those who struggle with sensitive/dry skin!
Great cream to use every day
I use this cream in the morning when I feel my skin getting dry or after I use a face mask. It deeply moisturizes, but does not feel thick or heavy on your face as it is absorbed. I definitely feel it soothes any sensitive spots on my face that can be flaring up.
Amazing, amazing, amazing for dry, sensitive skin
I have dry, sensitive skin that is prone to eczema - most products leave my face stinging and dry (even moisturizers!) , so I was hesitant that this cream would be any different. But, after a few weeks of use, I am so happy to report that my skin has TRANSFORMED. No more dryness, no more itchy, blotchy, red patches. My skin feels so comfortable, and I rarely need to reapply. Yes, it's a thicker cream, but for dry, reactive skin, this should be your go-to. I wear it every day underneath an SPF and I'm in love.
Nice but too Heavy for me
I sampled this product a few years ago and really liked it- so when I saw that birch box now carried REN and I was out of my usual moisturizer I decided to order it. Unfortunately it just isn't ideal for my skin type. I have been using it about 3 weeks and decided to return it. I have normal/slightly combination skin and this cream is way too heavy for me. It was causing some breakouts (which I rarely have) and my skin felt irritated. I really like REN as a brand, and do like many other products in their line, but I feel this moisturizer is better suited for someone with extremely dry skin and/or lives in a very dry climate.
This is my absolute most favorite facial moisturizer. My skin is super sensitive, everything makes it break out or dry out and this is wonderful. So very calming to my skin. I have combination dehydrated skin and this works so wonderfully. Love many products from Ren, but this one is the best.
