REN Beauty Shots
The Instant Firming Beauty Shot is described as “A liquid matrix of Hyaluronans instantly supercharge the skin with firming moisture and encourages elastin synthesis to firm and remodel the skin over time. Similar to traditional hyaluronic acid, hyaluronans support increased moisture retention in the skin and reduce trans-epidermal moisture loss. This serum is also formulated with phycocolloids, which form with the hyaluronans to keep skin looking plumped and hydrated for hours.” It’s clear, feels like a thick gel/serum and smells like roses. I use it over my Erno Laszlo Hyra Therapy Serum and usually top it off with a moisturizer (At night, I like this The V Cense Night Cream (also from REN). I recommend this to everyone, and just bought a bottle for my friend, Molly. I used to use a makeup primer before putting on my foundation, but I think this works even better.
The new Eye Lift version is described as “A light gel-serum that instantly lifts and dramatically brightens the delicate eye area. Visibly diminishes dark circles and puffiness. A liquid matrix of Hyaluronans lifts and tightens. Regular use will reduce the appearance of fine lines and crow’s feet, improving the overall look of the eye contour.” It’s iridescent white and and reminds me of the Illuminating Eye Serum from La Mer. It’s light and doesn’t irritate at all. I don’t have too many issues with lines or circles, but I like the idea of brightening my under eye area. If you’re looking for a nice, gentle eye cream, I’d recommend this one.
