[affiliate/sample] If you’re looking for a new cleanser to kick off your skin care regime in January, I will very happily guide you towards the new REN Perfect Canvas Jelly Cleanser. In fact, I’d shove you in its path.
The formula feels like a liquid balm – you think, initially, it’s going to be sticky but in fact once you start massaging over your skin it feels more like an oil. Now, in theory, it turns into a milk when water is added but I’m not so sure about ‘splashing water on your face’ as instructed because instinctively I went straight to a warm, damp cloth and smoothed it away like that, entirely missing the ‘milk’ step.
I can guarantee that your skin will feel supremely soft after use. The cleanser, which uses meadowfoam seed oil (meadowfoam is having a moment again) with sunflower and grapeseed oil as the key ingredients (although you should note that water appears before sunflower and meadowseed) with a coconut/glycerine blend acting as the predominant cleanser.
It whips through make up (and SPF) leaving skin flexible, comfortable and clean – what else do you need from a cleanser? The scent is natural and is just, well, a kind of generic, lightly sweet and clean fragrance that won’t bother anyone either way and at £25 which initially I thought was too much, a good buy. Having used it and assessed the amount needed, I think this tube will see you through a good length of time. It’s one to keep in the shower I think if you’re like me and can’t really be bothered to stand at the sink but do ensure that the water is away from your face while you massage around and still use a cloth to take away rather than let the water run it off. I promise the thing you’ll notice most is how silky your skin is afterwards. You can find it HERE, non affiliate HERE. If you sign up to emails from the brand you can get 20% off and I’d definitely do this to bring it to a tidy £20 (you can always junk mail them thereafter).
