Ren Vita Mineral Omega 3 Serum Oil
















































Upon inspection of my current skincare routine I suddenly became aware that I was lacking in facial oils. My skin type is combination to oily with this being the reason for having in the past always steered well clear of oils however I now know that they can be really beneficial to my skin type too, not just for those with dry skin. Therefore when kindly given the opportunity to try something from the REN Vita Mineral range I immediately opted for the Omega 3 Optimum Skin Serum Oil*. Retailing at £23 I think this is fairly reasonable as I really do rate REN products having had positive experiences with the brand in the past, plus I can assure you that this product will last you ages as you only need a small amount.

The Omega 3 Optimum Skin Serum Oil aims to boost overall skin health and vitality by improving moisture levels. reducing sensitivity, premature ageing and any signs of wrinkles. As I have said before I quite like to include a product that has anti ageing properties as I'm certainly not getting any younger. The real reason I decided to review this product however is because of the hydration properties as I do suffer with dehydrated skin at times, particularly in the colder weather.

I currently use this once a day in my evening skincare routine where I pop this on after cleansing and toning. Using just two pumps of this I find is enough to cover my face as I don't like to go too crazy with it because my moisturiser is soon to follow. The texture of this is silky smooth and quite runny, it isn't as thick as I had expected which for me is a good thing as I like products to sink into my skin rather than to feel them sitting on my face. Oils do worry me as I worry that my skin will become quite greasy however I had no issues at all in using this oil from REN.

One of my favourite aspects of this particular product has to be the smell, trust me when I tell you that it is amazing. To me it has quite a sugary sweet smell which I have to say I really do like. This does surprise me as if someone was to suggest to me this type of scent for a facial product I would probably shake my head in disapproval however with this product it just seems to work so well; it is definitely one to try out if you see it in stores.

Since I have being incorporating this into my routine of an evening I really have noticed a difference in the appearance of my skin. I used to wake up with a bit of redness on my cheeks in the morning however since trying this out that redness has all but disappeared; I'm not sure if this product is supposed to solve that particular issue but I think it has. Aside from that I have also noticed that my skin looks more plump and much more radiant which is most likely due to more moisture being retained in my skin.

Overall I think this is a fantastic product which I will happily buy for myself in the future. This time of year would be a perfect time to maybe ask for this for Christmas, it would also make a lovely gift for someone who enjoys looking after their skin and has an interest in skincare.

As always REN products are cruelty free and free from a huge amount of various ingredients such as parabens, sulphates, silicones, mineral oil and much more.
