One of my favourite REN releases yet, I've featured the Keep Young and Beautiful Instant Firming Beauty Shot (£36) before in my Four Serums for Oily Skin post. As a product which I have been using on an almost everyday basis for a few months now, it was about time this beauty got a full review of it's own - and I even have a cheeky giveaway for you to win an Instant Firming Beauty Shot for yourself, too!
I'm constantly craving more plumped, supple and firmer skin. I'm closer to 30 than I am 20 now and so looking after my skin is extremely important. One of the biggest changes to our skin as we age is the level of collagen which our skin naturally produces. As we age our natural collagen levels decrease, causing our skin to lose its natural firmness, look and feel less plump and overall makes us look less youthful than we may like.
The REN Keep Young and Beautiful Instant Firming Beauty Shot is a fantastic way to pamper skin with powerful and effective ingredients which help to plump, firm and lift skin. With a gel-serum formula and bio-extracts of Hyaluronan 1, Hyaluronan 2 and Phycocolloids, it instantaneously leaves skin smoother, tighter and with an overall more youthful look. Hyaluronan 1 is derived from Yeast Biofermentation which provides instant firmness whilst smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, Hyaluronan 2, also derived from Yeast Biofermentation, firms and remodels skin over continued use, whilst Phycocolloids derived from Microalga work to plump skin from within, promoting longer-lasting hydration and comfort.
Presented in a glass bottle with pipette applicator and the clean and fresh packaging akin to REN products, Instant Firming Beauty Shot is Paraben, Sulphate, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, synthetic fragrance, synthetic colours, T.E.A, D.E.A, Glycols, Silicones and PEGS free. Clean, effective and cruelty-free skincare from a brand who is passionate about looking after skin with the best ingredients possible! The gel-serum is slightly thicker in consistency than other serums I have tried, but I find 2-3 drops from the pipette is more than enough for my face and neck - gently patted into the skin for an instantaneous plumping effect. Perfect for applying prior to moisturiser, it has an incredibly subtle and fresh scent and can even be re-applied throughout the day over moisturiser as well as makeup.
I use Instant Firming Beauty Shot most days now as a morning serum, as the more I have used it the more I have seen long lasting benefits to the quality and feel of my skin. It works wonderfully under makeup for keeping my skin look fresh and youthful, feels soothing and refreshing on application and despite the thicker consistency, feels completely weightless on.
A beautiful skincare innovation from REN, I couldn't be without this beauty in my skincare routine.
