• REN Flash Hydro-boost instant plumping emulsion

    As a skincare brand, REN is one of those brands that comes out with really interesting and effective products. Their newest offering, the Flash Hydro-Boost (Instant plumping emulsion) does not disappoint.  For those of you who read my blog, you will know that I am all about hydration. My skin gets dry so very quickly and I have to use good hydrating products to keep my skin moisturised and plump.
    The Flash Hydro-Boost emulsion is really interesting, in that you can boost the effectiveness by adding water to your skin. You apply the product after cleansing your face then with wet fingertips, you massage the product into your skin. The Hyaluronic acid and Xylitol help draw water into the skin and this is what provides the instant plumping effect.

    Honestly, within 2 to 3 minutes of being absorbed into my skin I can see the appearance of the dehydration lines improve and the very fine lines all but disappear. The thing that most concerns me about dehydrated skin is that it promotes premature wrinkles. Using hydration boosting products like this one will help reduce this and with the plumping properties, it will help prevent these types of wrinkles through continued use. I can't say that enough, in order to get the true benefits out of a product, you can to use it continuously.

    After the product is absorbed you follow it up with your usual moisturiser. It is so easy to incorporate into an existing skin care routine and I actually find it quite fun to use because my skin feels so great after using it.

    This is most definitely a product that I see myself purchasing once this tube is finished. Especially with the hot summer days ahead - I'll need all the hydration I can get. At R745 for 40ml it is a bit pricey but when you compare that to good quality serums and facial oils, this is actually very well priced. A 40ml tube will also last you a few months because one pump is more than enough product to cover your face and neck.

    You can purchase REN skincare products from the REN online store.

    1. I think you have just become my hydration-bestie! I am most certainly going to pick this up! How often do you use this product? Daily?

      1. Hi Mariska,

        You use this product daily underneath your normal moisturiser. I use it every morning to plump up my skin.
