REN Resurfacing AHA Concentrate - Reviewed!

As a lover of any sort to glycolic acid treatment such as the Alpha H Liquid Gold, i'm getting a little bit obsessed in wanting to try them all! REN is already one of my favourite skincare brands and their Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask is one my all time favourites I was interested in trying other products from their radiance range, especially this one.
First up packaging, I love how simple it is and how it matches the colour scheme of the other products in the radiance range. It comes in a small glass bottle with a pipette to dispense the product.
Like the mask this contains glycolic acid, lactic acid, tartaric acid and citric acid to remove dead skin cells and speed in the turnover of new cells. The product has a strong fruity scent like the mask, to me it smells like orange fruit pastels which I personally like. 
As I said above it comes with a pipette in which I take a few drops to cover my whole face. The product itself is like a thick liquid but not as thick as a gel, it as a slight tackyness too it which goes away as it absorbs into the skin. I apply with clean hands but you could use a cotton pad but you would waste product that way. I don't applied any moisturiser and serums after using this (like when using Liquid Gold) however REN do a serum that goes with this range and that can be used after the treatment which i'm definitely interested in trying.

After using this for a couple of months i've noticed after each use my skin feels extremely smooth and a lot less congested. Any redness seems to decrease along with any scarring seems to be less visible. I've also found it help with any dry patches I may have to feel less rough and my foundation therefore sits better on my face. 

I've found the product to feel gentle on the skin and does not sting when applied however if you have very sensitive skin I would be careful like with any glycolic treatment. All in all i've really enjoyed using this product and is a great once a week boost to the skin.

REN Resurfacing AHA Concentrate retails for £30.00.
