When it came to looking for reviews on this product, they were hardly any, but a ton of websites seem to be selling to, I guess I used this as an indication to try it. Before I blabber on, I am talking about the REN Wild Yam Firming, Smoothing Body Cream.
The website describes it as
A body cream formulated with phytohormones from Wild Yam to leave skin
optimally hydrated, looking firmer, smoother and healthier.
- Skin looks firmer, smoother, healthier, younger
- Improves elasticity and texture
- Deeply hydrates and replenishes
I sound like a broken record here, but many of you know I have dry skin, and constantly trying to find products that will combat that, and as this sounded like it would do the trick, I was excited to try.
What attracted me to this product was the no parabens, sulphates, synthetic fragrances, blah de blah de blah, see picture below!
I really wanted to like this product, but I just didn’t. The reason being is that I just don’t think the formula was creamy enough, not in the slightest. Its definitely one of those products that “deeply hydrates” but leave the top layers dry. I don’t know how this is possible because I wasn’t injecting it in my skin. PROMISE!
I do have to say, it doesn’t specify that is for dry skin, so perhaps I’m not using the right product, for my skin needs.
When I put a few drops of Johnsons Baby Oil, It instantly did the job. See why I thought I was using the wrong product?
Have you tried REN Skincare before?
Do you mix creams for the perfect formula?
