It’s so rare that I flag products as absolute, unconditional must-haves, but that’s what we have right here with the REN Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial. If I had a Hall of Fame it would be right in there even before it’s launched. I had a pre-sample months ago of REN Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial, which was then subsequently delayed due to a packaging issue (now resolved) and I used it up the to the very last drop. Once it had finished, I really wished I had more – I guess you could say I rather missed it.
What’s so great about it? Well, claims on this are that it instantly revitalizes and rejuvenates the skin – which I would say a straight yes to. It’s formulated with water activated stabilized Vitamin C, and if you’re an urban dweller this is your best friend for grey, city skin. Even when you don’t notice that your skin has dulled, you will see a difference after Flash Rinse in terms of brightness and freshness.
To use, you apply the gel to your skin – it feels very gently granular – and massage. Add water (wet your hands well) and massage again to activate the shot of Vitamin C, then rinse. REN claim long-term benefits to this, but personally, I think all the benefits are wrapped up in the here and now in the very simple guise of skin that looks and feels better straight away.
Unless you have sensitive skin, in which case, it may not be suitable, it’s worth every single penny of the £32 when it launches in September.
