A Lilac Encounter with REN Skin Care


I was lucky enough to be selected by The Lilac Team as one of The Lilac Bloggers (Yay I'm a flower!). The Lilac Bloggers community get the chances to explore and gain experience at different occasions. This time, I was invited to attend a workshop by REN skin care at KEN's Apothecary. Hop onto my Facebook for more photos. 

What is REN?
REN is a skincare products which manufactured in England with 98.4% natural ingredients and being packed in recyclable  bottles.
REN has three philosophies: Performance, Purity and Pleasure.
Performance: Gives scientifically and proven results to the skin
Purity: Uses 100% plant and mineral derived actives and free from skin-unfriendly synthetic ingredients
Pleasure: Provides an excellent product experience to the customers

REN is only available at KEN's Apothecary in Malaysia. There are only two outlets here, Empire Shopping Galery (Subang Jaya) & Bangsar Village II. You can always check out their Official Website for more information.

Now back to the workshop, the venue was at The KEN'S Apothecary @ Bangsar Village II. I took quite some time to find the outlet lol. Meh, I'm have no sense of direction.

This is Terry, the Marketing Manager (if I remember correctly), explaining all about REN, from the history to the product ranges.

It is quite fun to see this kind of packaging for skin care products. Almost all of the bottles used by REN are recyclable and can be returned to them for recycling purpose. 

REN has 5 key principles. REN believes skincare should be free from skin-unfriendly ingredients, and thus, giving a total different product experience to the users.

Top 5 Best Sellers (From left to right) 
Max Moisture Concentrate RM 199 @ 30 ml
Hydra Calm Cleansing Milk RM 119 @ 150ml
Frankincense Revitalising Night Cream RM 205 @ 50 ml
Keep Young and Beautiful SH2C Serum RM 305 @ 30 ml
Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask RM 175 @ 50 ml

I did a little test with the Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask, however it is not recommended for those who have sensitive and blemish prone skin. The after effect was terrific because my skin turned out to be glowing. My fine lines (on my palm) went missing for 80% instantly lol.
