Since I have no new recipe to post, I decided to share with you one of my all time favorite beauty products. Mr. Surly and I love REN skincare products, and this is by far our favorite one.
I used to get glycolic peels at the salon every other week, this was back before I was sick. Once I got sick and was unable to go regularly, I started a search for good glycolic peel that I could do at home. I went straight to my local Sephora for recommendations. I have sensitive skin, so I needed a sample size of the product to try before buying, and Sephora is generous with their samples. They recommended the REN glycolic mask. It was love after first application. I cannot describe what this does to my skin. It makes it as soft as a baby's bottom. Also, it helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles. And most importantly, it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin.
I loved this product so much, that I now have Mr. Surly using it once a week. I wonder if he cares that I shared that with you. I guess it doesn't matter, he doesn't read my blog anyway. So it can be our secret. We've been using this mask for about a year and a half.
After taking a hot shower (to open up my pores) I apply this to my face and neck and leave it on for 15 minutes (they recommend 10 min, but I'm a rebel). It tingles and sometimes burns a bit, but not that bad. Wash it off and don't worry about how red your face looks, it will fade fast. Just enjoy the wonderful, youthful, baby soft skin.
It's a little pricey--$55, but it lasts a long time. I think ours lasts about 4 months, and that's with 2 people using it regularly.
So, either run to your local Sephora store, or you can order it online from REN. You can thank me later.
