Reviews for REN Flash Hydro-Boost Instant Plumping Emulsion 40ml
I'm not impressed with some of the ingredients. However regarding product purpose, I find it good as a pre moisturiser. I rub it on like a normal moisturiser and then wet my fingers as instructed, I wait a few minutes then apply my normal day cream. It's like a pre moisturiser. It's very good for very dry skin. Applied under your normal day cream it helps leave my super dry skin soft and primed ready for make up. If you have oily skin then you probably don't need the extra moisture.
I wasn't sure where to use this in my skincare regime. I use a serum before moisturising and the instructions tell you to use before moisturising. I found this product just too much with a serum and a moisturiser.
My skin also isn't particularly dry so it may be more beneficial for those with dry skin. I will keep this and use it on its own, potentially before bed but not sure I'd buy it again.
I do love REN products but this one is just a step too far for me.
