[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] I’m a big fan of the REN Evercalm range – it’s one of my most recommended products amongst friends and family (and on here!) because it’s got the ability to hydrate, soothe and calm the skin better than just about any other product I can think of (MURAD’s Quick Relief Moisture Cream is on a par). To my mind, it’s more of a winter product than a summer one so the timing of the release of the body balm is good – post summer skin and temperature change hydration in one.
Do you remember that time in beauty that we were all obsessed with nourishing our dry elbows? I just seem to remember a lot of flagging up of dry elbows that feels fairly irrelevant now – I cannot remember a time where I’ve worried about my elbows in recent years! However, REN Evercalm Barrier Support Body Balm would be that product that gives that extra duty attention to dry patches as well as the whole body. It’s a balm to oil formula, ideal for dry shins actually because you’ll get a gorgeous gleam on your pins.
Ingredients are lovely – alongside REN’s Barrier Support Complex, additionals are camellia japonica and safflower ceramides. REN Evercalm Barrier Support Body Balm has a fragrance, billed as hypoallergenic, that I would describe as earthy floral (and very light). You’re going get an Omega rich boost to act as both hydrator and barrier. Personally, I wouldn’t be slathering this liberally over my body every day – I’d save it for flaky leg days, post sun tightness and post shower or bath times when extra, extra care is needed. It’s £35 for 90ml – a little goes a long way bearing in mind it turns into an oil on the skin but still probably out of my price range for every day. It’s every inch the treat and although I have said I won’t ‘save’ products but use them straight away, my inner hoarder wants to eke it out over time :-). You can find it HERE.
