Review: Ren Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask

Welcome to the Ren Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask bandwagon. There is a probably a zillion and one reviews on this mask so I'm going to keep my thoughts on this product quite short.

When I decided to try out the mask I went with the 'exclusive to sephora' kit which comes with a full sized Ren Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask, a mini Micro Polish Cleanser and a mini radiance perfection serum. When I first used the mask I used all three products in conjunction, the cleanser was nice but it seems like your typical exfoliating cleanser.

Now for the mask, when the product is pumped out your left with a gloppy almost jam consistency that has an orangey smell. I slather the product all over my face and leave it on for about 10-15mins. The first time I used it I realized next to no difference in the appearance of my skin. After all the hype I had read surrounding the mask you can bet I was disappointed and to the back of my medicine cabinet this product went. Then a couple weeks ago my skin was just not in its best condition and I was searching my stash for something to rejuvenate my skin and I came across the mask again. I used the cleanser, then the mask, followed by the serum and I woke up the next day to glowing skin. My skin was significantly smoother, the tone of my skin was more uniform and I had an overall glow. More over, my make up went on more smoothly and flawlessly. Basically, this mask receives an overall thumbs up from me and is going to have a permanent slot in my Sunday evening schedule.

Hope you guys enjoyed this post, make sure to tell me what your favorite masks are in the comments below and, as usual leave and questions or comments down below!

Chambray with Mustard: 030113

Hey Everyone,

Thought I would do a quick post and share one of my recent outfit of the days.

Chambray shirts can basically be found anywhere at the moment. I founds this one at Zara during their semi annual sale. I love the fading of the denim and the slight distressed feel the shirt has.  It is also really comfortable and I can see myself wearing it quiet a bit in the coming months. However, when I got it from Zara it had an awful, awful smell to it. Has this happened to anyone?

Now for the mustard! Every time I went into Dynamite (a Canadian store), for some reason I always gravitated towards this particular sweater. It was one of those items that you always look at but never buy. Then one day I saw it on sale and figured I should just get it. I really don't know how much wear I will get out of it but I love the color and up close the sweater almost has a slight sheen to it. On the down side, I feel like its one of those knits that will quickly lose its shape.

Now for the rest of my outfit, everything else you see is what I wear on any other given day. Wax Denim from Zara, if not these I usually wear a pair of faux leather pants I purchased a while back from Vero Moda or my faux leather pants from H&M.

 The ankle boots were actually a great steal from Sears. I got them on boxing day for $15! They are not the greatest quality but are very comfortable to walk in. I got them in the black and tan, check your nearest Sears to see if they are still around, the brand is Jessica.
