My Holy Grail Skincare Product

If I could keep only one skincare product that I have, that would probably be this magic “potion” from REN. As you can see, I have just re-purchased my second bottle.

It was called Omega 3 Night Repair Serum, and now the name is Optimum Skin Serum Oil, and the packaging is a bit different, but it’s the same ol’ brilliant formula. Hello Vegetal Plankton Extract, Flax Seed Oil (= Omega 3), Rosehip Seed Oil and Wheat Germ Oil!

REN Omega 3 Night Repair Serum Omega 3 Optimum Skin Serum OilIt literally transforms the skin over night. Even if you are stressed out, hardly had any sleep, did not eat well, and  are after 30+ hours of travelling (I am describing the real situation from last summer here, by the way) – it still shows visible results.

On my skin, it

I’ve picked up  the Yves Rocher’s Nutritive Vegetal Velvety Toner for Dry and Very Dry Skin  several weeks ago because I’ve heard some amazing things about it, and wanted to try a new toner anyway.

And it did not disappoint.

Yves Rocher Nutritive Vegetal Velvety Toner for Dry and Very Dry Skin Review

It is a great transitional product from cleanser to serum/oil/moisturizer/whatever you use next.  I like how it calms, soothes my skin, and leaves it soft. Plus it doesn’t irritate or dry it out, even when it’s very cold outside.

I don’t really know what else is there to say about a toner, besides that it smells nice and I like the cheerful orange colour of the bottle.

REN Omega 3 Night Repair Serum Review. Rave

REN is one of the most amazing skincare brands out there, in my opinion. Their most famous products are  Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask and Otto Rose body products. But today I want to tell you about the product that I personally love a lot.

And it is their Omega 3 Night Repair Serum.

Anything skincare related with omega 3 in it never fails to get my attention, actually.  This is an oil-based serum that, according to the brand, replenishes skin lipids and leaves the complexion looking naturally smoother and healthier.

And who doesn’t want that?

I find that this serum smells nice, the texture is not heavy but it is definitely a night serum. I massage it in for several minutes and it sinks pretty fast in my skin but it (my skin) “drinks up” any oils very fast, so if your skin is not that dry you may find that it will take you a longer time…

I am very impressed with

Nourish Skincare brand was founded by Dr Pauline Hili who was a Technical Director at Neal’s Yard Remedies for 20 years and is a one of the UK’s top organic skincare experts in general.

I personally like that there is nothing complicated about this brand, it’s simple yet effective. There are four skincare ranges: for oily  and combination, dry, sensitive and dull skin types.

I have a Replenishing Peptide Serum For Dry Skin (£16.95) which I have been using during the holiday season…

This is a 80% organic product with Orange and Mandarin Oils, Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid. As I’ve said I have been using this serum during the holiday season ( I think I have used about half of it by this time), both evening and morning and loved the effect.

Of course, I loved the zesty citrus scent and also the light texture of the product which absorbed quickly into the skin.

I would say that

I am actually surprised that I have never written about Clarins’ HydraQuench  range as it is one of my favourites and I have been using it since last winter.

I have a HydraQuench Intensive Serum Bi-Phase and HydraQuench Cream SPF 15.

HydraQuench Intensive Serum Bi-Phase (£40 for 30 ml)

This is actually one of the best products for dehydrated and/or dry skin I have ever tried.  With the key ingredients such as: Hyaluronic acid, Katafray extract, Sorbier bud extract, Inca peanut extract and Chondrus crispus extract (red algae) it works miracles!

By miracle I mean that you can see immediate results, this serum helps stimulate skin’s natural moisturisation process.  It battles all the drynesses, flakiness and tightness, leaving the skin hydrated, plumped, soft and smooth.

Bi-Phase serum smells nice, takes seconds to absorb and does not leave a greasy or oily residue.  It is now my skincare essential whenever my skin needs a little help, which is quite often in winter.

I could not sing enough praises  to this product. In fact, I have finished my first bottle and the second one, which I’ve got during the sales, is
