REN Rose Centifolia / V-Cense 1 Minute Facial

REN Rose Centifolia Hot Cloth Cleanser Review
REN has fast become one of the skincare brands that I turn to in order to solve my skin troubles. I have in the past been super impressed by the products I have tried therefore it may come as no surprise to you that I have today two more products to share with you. The REN Rosa Centifolia Hot Cloth Cleanser* has been a new recent addition to my evening skincare routine along with implementation of a new skincare treatment; the REN V-Cense Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial*.

The Rose Centifolia Hot Cloth Cleanser was something that I was extremely looking forward to trying as cleansing it one of my favourite parts of my skincare routine. Upon first use I could tell instantly that this was something I was going to enjoy using as it left my skin feeling so soft, nourished and clean. The product itself is a white cream which isn't as thick as say the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser. If you have tried the No7 version I would say it leans more towards that thinner type of texture which I really like. It smells really light and gentle with subtle hints of rose coming through, in my opinion it isn't overpowering in the slightest as I would be the first person to say so considering that rose scents are often something that I struggle with.

Along with the cleanser there is a little cloth that comes with it so you're ready to start your new cleansing routine right from the start. I do find this cleanser to be really soothing and look forward to using it when I get home from work as there is nothing quite like taking your make up off when it has been on since 7am. In regards to removing make up I think that this cleanser achieves this pretty well however please note that I do tend to use a micellar water before hand on my eyes in order to lift up pesky eye liner and mascara; I'm not a fan of using a cream product over my eyes no matter what it is. For a total of £16 I do think you're getting a decent product here for your money, particularly since it works so well and will last you quite a while too; I know that I will definitely consider purchasing this for myself once I have used this up.

For a little treat to my skin I have also road tested a few samples of the REN V-Cense Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial which is a yet to be released product from the brand. It is essentially a gel that aims to revitalise and rejuvenate the skin of which I would argue that it does this pretty well. I've only been able to test it twice and deep down I must admit that I would have liked to try it for a longer period of time however my first impressions have been pretty positive. To use it you simply rub the gel onto your skin and then by using a bit of water on top this supposedly activates vitamin C which helps to remove that 'urban grey' look as well as black heads and dead skin cells. The texture is quite light and has a very slight grainy feeling to it, it's also a mint green colour which is a little bit different. 

Upon using this my skin at the time felt no different as there was no tingling or anything to suggest that it was working however once I removed it with warm water I could clearly see that my skin looked clearer and brighter. I'm extremely curious about this product and I cannot lie that I would like to try this again when it is released later this year.

  1. I'm still not sold on any hot polish cleansers I've tried, but I do like REN so I may have to give this a go.

    1. That's a shame, I have to admit since trying them I'm reluctant to steer away from them at any point now xx

  2. I've wanted to try this for such a long time, I currently use the Liz Earle one I don't find that it lasts very long though! :( I think with this you get 50ml more product so it may last a little longer…well that's how I'm justifying it anyway haha great post! :) x

    1. Oh that's completely different to my experience, my Liz Earle Cleanser lasted me quite a long time I found. This REN version is really quite lovely though, I certainly recommend trying it xx

  5. This sounds great, I've recently just got into hot polish cleansers but the one I'm using is a cheapy but it's pretty good. I do like Ren so this may have to go on my shopping list! Great post.

    1. There's nothing wrong with cheap Hannah, the Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser is one of the best I have tried and it's about £5 :) xx

  6. I recently purchased the hot cloth cleanser and have only used it once but it was very nice with an organic floral scent. I really want to try the facial product when it gets released. REN is one of my favorite skincare brands.
