Ren - Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask

Hello again...

I was sent out the Ren glycolactic radiance renewal mask to try out. I have heard brilliant things about this brand but had never actually tried any of their products. As always I researched the brand and was interested to see the results from this mask, as I have problem skin.

The Ren glycolactic radiance renewal mask is said to be a gentle peel that contains a potent blend of bio actives to renew the complexion, reduce the appearance of fine lines and dramatically improve skin tone.  

The product contains natural fruit extracts including passion fruit, lemon, grape and pineapple. All of which are to help clear the skin and give it a nice clean feel and appearance.

I wanted to really test this product, so I used it when my skin was dry, oily, spotty, combination and I have to say I was super impressed with the results. My skin felt soo good after using the mask, especially when my skin was on the drier side it really give me a radiant glow! 

It says to use this mask weekly, and that's what I did. I have given it a real good test and honestly when this bottle runs out I will be repurchasing. 

What I loved was the fact you got a little muslin cloth along with the mask, I am a real sucker for things like this and just feel it gives you the best results, even though you are only using it to wipe the mask off. I like to use a separate cloth for all my different face bits and bobs eg oils, scrubs and masks, so the fact you get a little cloth with this made me a happy girl.

At £32.00 for a 50ml bottle the glycolactic radiance renewal mask is a little on the expensive side, but if you are on the look out for a product to really brighten and make you skin feel lovely then I would suggested trying this one out :)

You can get the glycolactic radiance Renewal mask online from Ren Skincare, while your there why not have a browse at all the other items from the brand.

Have any of your used this mask before, or anyother products from the brand? I would love to hear your thoughts.

Lots of Love...

Kiko Milano store opening in Belfast

I really hope this isn't a wind up was my initial thought when I seen on social media that Kiko Milano was coming to Belfast.

I have always loved the look of their eyeshadows and lipsticks but I'm the sorta girl that likes to see an item in front of me before I buy it, so I had never ordered online.

Then when a post appeared on facebook of the poster on the outside of the shop all my hopes were confirmed ... eek kiko was opening in Belfast!!

One thing that really bugs me is when you go into a makeup shop and all the items are dirty/grubby and some missing. I don't even stop to look as there is absolutely no way I am gonna swatch them, to see what the colour payoff is like etc.. so I decided that I would get up bright and early on the day of kiko opening to see around the makeup first. Its the little things in life that keep me happy!

So off I set up to Belfast at 7.00 as its an hour drive for me and I got there and parked for just after 8.... When I was walking to Kiko I had no idea how many people would be there or if anyone was there, I was actually like a kid with excitement.

I turned the corner and was pleased there was only about 15 people in a queue. The first 50 people threw the door got a gift voucher so the early start had paid off :)

The store wasn't opening to 10.30 so it was a long enough wait but thankfully it was dry and not too cold, slowly but surely the queue got longer and more and more people kept coming. There were already other bloggers inside who had been invited to a bloggers breakfast, so they were all having a look at the products and getting photographs.

A couple of people came out and gave us all some buns and then some nibbles which was pretty nice of them.... counting down the minutes till the store opened some of the staff came out to talk to everyone.

I was now number 26 in the queue as school kids had bunked off school and sneaked into the line so when the doors finally opened they were only letting so many in at a time... this meant I had to wait longer to get a look around ... Boooo!

Finally I got in... oh my days what to look at first... I went straight to the eyeshadows and then onto lipsticks, however it got too packed and I started to feel claustrophobic so I went to the till and quickly got out.


I was a little disappointed if I'm honest as it's such a tiny shop and I didn't get to look at things properly, but I couldn't wait to try my new bits and bobs. The first 200 customers also got a goodie bag which included a wet & dry eyeshadow, a nail varnish and a lip gloss.

I am super impressed with the bits and bobs I picked up but I don't think I would go and queue up so early again for another shop opening as it was just too hectic.

Did any of you head up to the opening, or have you used Kiko products before? I would love to hear your thoughts :)

Lots of Love...
