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)

Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum

Lately I have been obsessed with the Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum . In the past I tried the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, it was alright but I didn’t find the result that amazing. So when I got a sample of for this Estee Lauder Enlighten Serum, I didn’t have high hopes … But how wrong I was! The sample bottle lasted me for two generous weeks and after that I rushed out to get the full size. Although it is called a serum, it is a light milky lotion texture, it is easily absorbed into skin and it feels moisturising. With the sample bottle, I used it every night after my cleansing routine. I can see visible results to my face after two weeks. My blemish marks are significantly lighter (my main concern) and the skin tone for the rest of my face is visibly more even.  Now I have the full size bottle (30ml, also available in 50ml size), I am going to follow the instructions to use it both day and night. Use it at night to reduce
