REN Perfect Canvas Clean Jelly Oil Cleanser Review

Over the last few months, I have found that REN have somewhat became my go-to brand for skincare staples as a lot of their products are Vegan (and therefore cruelty-free), a lot of their packaging is sustainable and of course the have some wonderful formulations too. As an avid SPF and make-up wearer, I go through cleanser like there is no tomorrow and as such I was keen to try out the newly launched REN Perfect Canvas Clean Jelly Oil Cleanser.

REN Perfect Canvas Clean Jelly Oil Cleanser - doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, as far as a product title goes it is fairly long-winded; what you need to know is that it is a "melting balm" type of  substance and a little firmer in texture, than what we would typically associate with a "jelly" formulation. In my opinion this is nothing but a bonus, as it means you use less product and with a more substantial composition you are less likely to spill or waste any product, and yet it yields more than enough slip to gently massage and treat the skin. I own and in the past have tried several balm-type cleansers and have to say that the texture of the REN Perfect Canvas Clean Jelly Oil Cleanser is nothing short of beautiful, it glides onto the complexion with such ease (ideal if you have to be extra cautious with blemish prone skin), yet feels soothing and nourishing all at once.

So unlike other cleansers of this nature, REN Perfect Canvas Clean Jelly Oil Cleanser actually boasts a unique tri-phase formulation: jelly to oil then milk. As such it can effortlessly dissolve and of course remove waterproof makeup, pollution, SPF and more - it is also gentle enough to use around the eye area should you wish. Admittedly I am a huge fan of double cleansing, especially after a long day but should you be pressed for time, this quick to work formula has your back meaning you can climb into bed, guilt-free knowing your make-up has been fully removed.

Typically I don't get too wrapped up in the finer details of a cleanser, at least not where ingredients are involved as it doesn't stay on the skin any length of time before being rinsed off. For those more cautious than I am the core ingredients are as follows: glycerine to comfort and soothe the skin and a base of grape (antioxidant rich), sunflower (regenerating and great for acne) and meadowfoam oils (moisturising and rejuvenating).
Now at £25/100ml this is by no means a cheap and cheerful product, however the formulation is stellar and I do think it is worth noting that the packaging is constructed from no less than 50% recycled materials and the entire thing is recyclable, once too the contents are depleted too.
