REN is one of those brands that I get drawn to because of the hype. It is always winning awards and there has been a lot of positive reviews on their products and if something is that good, I want to try it myself! I’m keen to try their skincare but the first product I’ve used from their range is the award-winning Moroccon Rose Otto Body Wash*. Rose Otto is such a buzz word/ingredient in the beauty industry now, I’m seeing it more and more. It is one of the world’s most expensive and revered essential oils and seems to the key ingredients in many luxury skin and body care products at the moment.
This Moroccan Rose Otto Body Wash is parabens-free and does not contain sulfates, mineral oil, sythnetic fragrances and artificial colours. I like all rose scented things but this body wash is not the typical commercial rose garden scented scent you’d usually expect. It isn’t sickly sweet and has a subtle exotic eastern fragrance to it. It does leave skin feeling soft and I find that I don’t have to moisturise afterwards as my skin doesn’t feel dried out like it does with soap or a cheap shower gel from the supermarket. I find myself using this product quite sparingly but I still seem to have a lot in the bottle! It is expensive in terms of shower products but if you’re cautious about ingredients, I would recommend this because it has no nasties in it, and it’s gentle on skin. It retails at £17.00 for 200ml and is available from REN website
