As blog title - Beauty Junkie - I'm a person who can't resist to try out any skin care or cosmetics. If only I could, I would get my hands on every single products out there and try them all out. Unfortunately, reality doesn't permits this.

Through all these years, I've tried tons of brands and I did stumble across quite a few good ones. Few months back when I was in Bangsar, I came across REN Skincare in Bangsar Village in Kensapothecary. They carry other brans such as Dr Brandt, Caudalie and etc. I was interested in REN Skincare after visiting the store, and decided to head back the shop again to purchase the products. I made 2 visits to the shop.

During my 1st visit, I bought 3 products: Cleansing Gel, Night Serum, and Mask.

(L)Clay Mask, (M)Night Serum, (R)Cleasing Gel
From Right to Left:

Mayblossom T-Zone Control Gleansing Gel - For Combination Skin
I used to cleanse my face with gleasing gel, but it has been irritated skin. That has made me switch to foam cleanser, as one of my beautician actually adviced that foam cleanser is more gentle and gel cleanser, and they do not irritate the skin further - especially if you have sensitive skin like mine. When I was using my previous gel cleanser, I could clearly see the redness on my face (due to acne scars). However, after using the gel cleanser from REN, I fall in love with this product! It doesn't dries up the skin. On the other hand, I felt my skin is smoother and clearer after a period of using the cleanser. To add on, it actually can remove non-waterproof makeup - but I'd advice to use a proper makeup remover instead of relying a cleanser to remove all the makeup. It costs around RM120 for 150ml (if I remember correctly).

ClearCalm 3 Replenish Night Serum - For Blemish Prone Skin
Apart from having combination and sensitive skin, I'm blemish prone too. Talk about being difficult to find a perfect match product for my skin! Because of my skin condition, I really been having a hard time to find a moisturizer or serum that could keep my skin moist enough but would not cause further breakouts or redness. I was kinda wary when started using their serum, as back in my mind I had the impression that serum tends to be richer (that's why people add serum into their skincare routine to give it a boost). However, I was assured by the promotor from Kensapothecary that REN serum would not give my skin the negative effect. The serum is supposed to soothe and calm the skin, also to reduce redness and pigmented scars. Guess what! Although it is a night serum, it doesn't leave your skin feeling sticky or too rich. The serum absorb into my skin very fast and it leave a smooth sensation to the skin. It kinda make me want to touch my face everytime after I've applied their night serum. It is priced at RM129 for 50ml.

ClearCalm 3 Clarity Restoring Mask - For Blemish Prone Skin
THIS is one of my favourite mask - or I should say, one of my proudest skincare that I've purchased! Am I exaggerating? Nope, definitely not. The biggest reason that I'm so in love with this clay mask is because it  helps to dry up the acne/pimples, hence, they heal faster. Also, it deep cleanse the pores and improve the skin tone - whereby, it will reduce the redness and scars too. Whenever I use the clay mask, I can totally see the difference on my face and also the obvious redness reduce in my acne scars. I'm using the mask twice a week, which is recommended, as all the makeup we slap on our face daily and the dust that gets into our pores everytime we go outdoor - these really tends to clog up the pores and lead to acne problem. Due to they've added sulfur into their mask (as it helps to combat acne), I can smell sulfur on my face whenever I apply the mask. Personally, I'm totally fine with this, as the end results are really really good. So, for you peeps who wish to give this a try - go ahead! But try to bear with the smell. After, no pain no gain! Right? The mask is slightly at the high side, which is RM179 for 50ml. Alternatively, instead of using it on the whole face twice a week, you peeps can either just apply it on the affected area; or apply whole face on one day and apply on the affected area only on the other day. This way, you could use the mask a bit longer.

On my 2nd visit to Kensapothecary, I've bought their toner.

Clarifying Toning Lotion - Combination to Oily Skin
For me, toner is one of the very essentials skincare. A good toner suppose to remove dead skin and prep the skin to absorb better on whatever skincare you are applying after that. REN toner helps to unclog the pores and sloughs off dead skin leaving the skin looking clearer and smoother. I've started using their toner around a month, and so far things are working good for me. The toner costs about RM123 for 150ml.

All in all, I'm very satisfy with REN products. In fact, I'm actually considering to buy their milk cleanser - which could also use as a makeup remover.

Currently they have 2 outlets in Malaysia - Empire Shopping Gallery and Bangsar Village II. Their address in Empire Shopping Gallery is - Empire Shopping Gallery Lot UG08, Jalan SS 16/1, SS 16, Subang Jaya, Selangor. As for their outlet in Bangsar Village II, it is located same floor as Aesop (which is 1st floor) - take the escalator near Ted Baker and Massimo Dutti and you'll be at the correct direction.

Happy Shopping!!
