When REN sent over this little bottle of magic last month I knew it was going to be good. After all REN’s products tend to always be superb, I am a regular purchaser of their Moroccan Rose Otto range and have used their skincare range for oilier skin types but had yet to try an anti-aging product from their selection. The REN Keep Young Keep Beautiful Instant Firming Shot is suitable for all skin types and helps to provide firming moisture and encourage elastin synthesis to firm and remodel the skin over time.
The effects from this wonderful gel-serum can be felt after first use within 30 minutes you can feel and see improvement…which is why I said it truly is magic in a bottle. The science behind this fast acting effect is thanks to a liquid matrix of Phycocolloids and two different Hyaluronans. “The Hyaluronans work together to produce both short and long-term improvements in skin firmness. Hyaluronan 1 acts as a cell messenger focused on improving cell cohesion leading to an instant tightening and lifting effect. Hyaluronan 2 works deeper down in conjunction with dermal fibroblasts to boost elastin synthesis and improve long-term skin firmness.”
I have only been using this for two weeks thus far but as previously mentioned you can see the difference quite quickly. I especially like using it after a late night or when ones skin feels the need for a serious pick-me-up (literally). It also smells amazing and provides a lovely even “primer” effect for ones foundation. To Apply simply use two or three drops and apply onto clean skin and follow with your moisturiser. You can Reapply over your moisturiser or make-up throughout the day as needed. When applying over make-up take note to gently pat your skin until absorbed and not to rub.
