REN Resurfacing AHA Concentrate : Resurfacing my face!

In the past months, the biggest concerns I had about my skin were: large pores around my nose - which is brilliantly solved by the GlamGlow Supermud Mask (post here), and the little bumps under my left eye. I think they appeared because I was a bit heavy handed on my eye cream. I changed to a lighter eye creams, exfoliated and used face masks, I just couldn't get rid of them!  One day I was tidying up my bathroom cabinet and found the Ren Resurfacing AHA Concentrate lurking at the back. "Resurfacing?!" The word got me thinking...

The REN Resurfacing AHA Concentrate has the consistency of a serum. After I cleanse and tone, I take a 3-4 drops and apply it to my face (Don't put too close to your eyes tho). It is watery & slightly sticky. I would leave it for a few minutes to let it fully absorbed before I apply any night cream on top.
After using for a week and a half
The first night I applied it, when I woke up the next morning, the bumps were significantly & visibly less bumpy!! The bumps seemed to have calme down so much! I continued to use it for a week, and my undereye area is now much smoother and brighter! I team up the REN Concentrate with the Pai Rosehip face oil, I find it give a bigger impact on the result.

I have been using it for a week and a half now. The bumps have almost disappeared (not sure if they will re-appear if I stop using the Concentrate). When I use my favourite Becca Resurfacing Primer underneath my Chanel Lumiere Velvet foundation, the bumps are almost invisible!

I am so surprised by the results! Have you tried REN Resurfacing AHA Concentrate before? 

* Important note : Please remember to use a strong sunscreen as the AHA will make the skin thinner & more sensitive to the sun. I am loving the Soap & Glory Sunshield SPF 50+ at the moment! (Detail Review here)
