Running until October, REN Clean Skincare (very excitingly) currently have a popup in the flagship Oxford St store of Selfridges.
In celebration of the Selfridges Project Earth Commitment, the REN pop-up features products made using fully sustainable, recycled materials. Experts in highly effective skincare, REN are also renowned for their commitment to sustainability. Having made a pledge to be a brand creating zero waste by 2021, this means all their products will feature recycled, recyclable or reusable packaging solutions.
Plus, REN have a limited-edition collaboration box with Selfridges, selling at RRP £115, yet containing goodies meaning it is actually worth £153. That’s a fabulous 25% reduction.
Packaged in a beautifully illustrated box, depicting an ocean scene, it is printed using vegetable-based ink with a biodegradable coating. 100% recyclable, I use this box (and previous REN gift set boxes) on my desk. Not only is it brilliant for keeping notepads and pens in- as well as lipsticks and handcreams- the box looks gorgeous in situ too.
Within the box itself, you will find: Perfect Canvas Clean Jelly Oil Cleanser (100ml), Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic (100ml), Clean Screen Mineral SPF 30 Mattifying Face Sunscreen Broad Spectrum (10ml), Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream (50ml), Overnight Glow Dark Spot Sleeping Cream (10ml) and Atlantic Kelp and Magnesium Anti-Fatigue Body Wash (300ml).
All gorgeous products that here at SN we are huge fans of, the mineral-rich body wash for example, is moisturising, soothing and invigorating. Without a metal spring, the wash not only comprises sea-sourced Atlantic kelp, but it is also packaged in ocean-reclaimed plastic. One for a boost when you’re feeling burnt out or just need a little TLC, I love using this body wash alongside REN’s Atlantic Kelp and Magnesium Salt Anti-Fatigue Exfoliating Body Scrub. They are the perfect pairing to relieve muscle fatigue and offer relaxation.
Ready Steady Glow is a cult beauty favourite, brightening skin without irritation. Presented in a 100% recycled plastic bottle, use it after the Perfect Canvas cleanser whose jelly formula efficiently removes makeup, pollution and even SPF (no mean feat…). Help with mask induced irritation by using the Ever Calm moisturiser,now in 100% sustainable packaging via the innovative Infinity Recycling which means waste otherwise destined for landfill can be recycled.
Dipping into Clean Screen for daily sun protection, for the end of the day, the Overnight Glow has an expert formula targeting age spots specifically.
Has there ever been a better excuse to sample some REN Clean Skincare than their limited-edition Selfridges collab?
