REN Skincare: Rose Synergy O12 Restoring Facial Serum

REN Clean Bio Active Skincare has introduced a new omega fatty acid serum with rosehip oil and it is fantastic!

Those who follow For the Love of Beauty already know I adore REN skincare and I'm a firm believer that their serums, in particular, are among the most effective out there. One of the many qualities I really appreciate about this brand is that they deliver on their claims. Rose Synergy O12 Restoring Facial Serum is no disappointment.

Here's the scoop:

A facial serum designed to offer intensive hydration, protection and an instant glowing softness

Formulated to lock in moisture and prevent skin dehydration, this oil will also restore and maintain glowing softness, elasticity and comfort while offering protection against oxidative damage and premature aging. It contains the purest steam distilled Rosa Damascena Oil and a synergistic blend of oils from Ximenia, Rosehip Seed, Camellia, Jojoba, Soya, Macadamia, Rice Germ and Arctic Cranberry Seed. In addition, a bio active complex of ceramides, phospholipids and omega 6 & 7 essential fatty acids boosts skin repair and softness. The exquisite scent of rose oil is also known for its uplifting, stress-relieving and calming aromatherapeutic properties.

Skin type: Dry, dehydrated, sensitive, jet lagged, aging or stressed skin. To use: Apply under moisturiser in the morning and over night serum in the evening.

Benefits of specific ingredients:
  • Seabuckthorn and Rosehip Seed Oil - these essential fatty acids boost skin lipid content, protect cell membrane and restore moisture level

  • Carthame Oil - the ceramides from this oil work with phospholipids to increase cell cohesion in the uppermost layer of skin to further increase skin's ability to retain its moisture (water), restoring skin's glow, elasticity and comfort

  • Omega 3 & 7 Essential Fatty Acids - soothe and reduce redness relieving skin inflammation and irritation

  • Rice Germ and Macadamia Oils - rich in triglycerides these nourish skin and help to improve the barrier against moisture loss
  • Ximenia Oil - rich in long-chain fatty acids this oil also helps lock in moisture acting as a waterproof shield, also improving functionality of the sebaceous tissues

  • Cranberry Seed Oil - protect against oxidative damage and intercept scavenge free radicals; also rich in omega 3 fatty acid, antioxidants and Vitamin E, it aids skin in anti-inflammatory, anti- microbial, broad-spectrum UV protection and emolliency

REVIEW: I've added this to my new regimen of pomegranate skincare, including the use of POMEGA5 and Pomegranate Health products. I alternate the REN Rose Synergy O12 Restoring Facial Serum with the POMEGA5 Revitalizing Treatment Ampoules. Loving the results! The REN serum not only adds the luxurious, sensual aromatherapy experience of the damascus rose scent, it effectively fulfills its promise to deliver the actions of the claims described above. What results after application is soft, soothed, moisturized skin without a greasy residue or clogged pores. The serum comes in a beautiful glass bottle with pump dispensing. It's like having a professional spa treatment in the convenience of your own home. REN just never fails to impress!

  1. Hi, I'm so glad you did a review of this product!! I love ALL of REN's Rose products. The only REN things I'm not in love with are the Revivo Lift Intensive Night Serum and the Phyto Dynamic Instant Lifting Gel. When I told this to their rep (I don't want to give away who or where because I don't want the person to get in trouble), the rep admitted to me were "not really worth the money" and were created because the market seemed to demand it. Can't wait to try out this new Rose serum!

  2. Oh my gosh! Emi, I am so surprised to hear the feedback on the Revivo Lift. I absolutely love that particular product. It's one of the only products I've found actually minimizes my forehead lines. Seriously, the lines are plumped instantly on application. Perhaps it works differently for people based on skin type, needs ... not sure - but I love it. And, yes, you should definitely try the O12 - it's fabulous! If you like their rose products, this is sure to please. xo
