REN is a skincare brand I have always wanted to try, I’ve had tiny samples here and there but it’s never been enough to get a real feel of a product. When I was asked if I wanted to try the new REN Perfect Canvas* I instantly said yes. It sounded like such a beautiful product, and something that my skin would love.
I have used this product every day since I got it. I had high expectations for it and to be really honest, wasn’t expecting it to actually work for me. It’s described as ‘the ultimate skin perfecting serum.’ A silicone-free primer that’s said to lift the skin and naturally fill in fine lines and wrinkles along with nourishing the skin for long-term perfecting results. It also mentions a matte finish that results in the perfect canvas for makeup application and lengthens makeup longevity.
PIN IT!You’re advised to use this product after your moisturiser and to massage a small amount into your skin until it’s fully absorbed. You’re then ready to apply your makeup. Although it’s said to leave a matte finish, I don’t feel like it does for me. I have dry skin and it just leaves my skin feeling so hydrated and smooth.
I noticed after just a couple of days how different my makeup looked. It no longer settled in my fine lines around my eyes and my makeup now lasts all day long. My makeup just sits so well on my skin when I use this primer and I really notice the difference if I haven’t used it. It wears off, it ends up a patchiness mess by the end of the day but using the Perfect Canvas, my skin is hydrated, plump, smooth, moisturised all day long.
Yes £50 for a product is a lot of money, however a little goes a long well couldn’t be more accurate here. I use roughly 2-3 drops every morning and you get 30ml of product so it will last a while. I will definitely be repurchasing this product once I run out. For me, it’s a total game changer, I love the way my skin and makeup looks and feels when I use this and I don’t want that to change.
