SKINCARE REVIEW: Ren Keep Young and Beautiful SH2C Serum

REN has been one of my favorite skincare lines for years.  Before it was "cool" to have eco-friendly, natural ingredient, bio active skincare, REN had already made a name for itself.  Their products are not only pleasurable to use, they are truly effective, and in some cases non-equalled in the world of skincare, much less in the world of synthetic-free, clean bio active, eco-friendly skincare. This brand truly is a visionary brand, and they keep getting better!

So when I saw REN was launching a new anti-aging serum, I just had to try it.  Keep Young and Beautiful is a serum that promises to give radiant, smoother, younger looking skin. Claims are that instantly skin feels firmer, plumper, lifted and that it reduces the appearance of fine lines and keeps skin looking younger for longer. hey, who wouldn't want to get on board for that?  What can one expect when using Keep Young and Beautiful?

•Radiant, smoother, younger looking skin
•Skin feels firmer, plumper and lifted
•Helps reduce appearance of fine lines
•Regulates skin tone, repairs and brightens complexion

Hexapeptides from yeast stimulate skin renewal and synthesis of skin firming proteins
Native peptides act as a safe alternative to Botox to smooth expression lines, also encouraging natural collagen filling of fine lines
Glycosaminoglycans from corn provide lasting hydration
Hyaluronic acid increases moisture levels to plump up the skin
Sirtuin increases the longevity of skin cells to promote natural repair of sun damaged skin 
Vitamin C corrects skin tone, illuminates and brightens the complexion
You're going to be reading more about the ingredient Sirtuin in the coming days on For the Love of Beauty.  With a number of other up-and-coming advanced skincare ingredients, Sirtuin is showing lots of promise in the anti-aging range, receiving both scientific and editorial praise for its ability to actually prolong cell life.  We already know the importance of hexapeptides as an active ingredient in stimulating skin renewal and firming properties. They help to boost collagen and elastin. The native peptides used in this serum are sourced from wheat, which assist in reducing wrinkles, and of course hyaluronic acid plumps and hydrates.

So here's the scoop.  The milky serum is easily absorbed into clean skin and, true to the claims, instantly provides a firming, matte yet hydrated, healthy, renewed finish. You'll notice as you warm the serum in your hands then apply to the face that the serum takes on an almost starchy feel to it (see photo #3 above).  That's ok.  It's still going to blend. With continued use you'll notice wrinkles appear plumped from the inside out, skin becomes soft and brightened, signs of aging appear diminished (spots, ruddiness, dullness), and skin just looks energized and fresh. The scent is so reminiscent of what we've come to expect from REN too, that fabulous subtle damascus rose with a fresh herbal blending - gorgeous!
REN Keep Youg and Beautiful SH2C Serum is a winner; one of their best serums yet! Retailing for $75 and packaged in the always appreciated glass pump bottle, there is a little over 1 oz in each bottle.  REN Keep Young and Beautiful SH2C Serum is available exclusively at Space.NK Apothecary.
