Its not often I am blown away by a product, but today I want to rave about the No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm from REN Clean Skincare. Some may think I’m easily pleased, but when it comes to skin care products I am really fussy – or my sensitive, eczema/psoriasis prone skin is.

REN No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm

Here is a little information about the No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm….

A luxurious silky rose infused cleansing balm. When applied with water the balm transforms into a rich milk and leaves skin purified, calm and glowing. It gently yet thoroughly melts away dirt and make up (including waterproof mascara). Results: 

  • Calms, soothes and purifies.
  • Protects the skin’s defense barrier against everyday environmental stress, free radicals and pollution.

How to use: 

Warm in the palm of the hands and gently massage over the face and neck for a couple of minutes. Add a little water to emulsify into a rich milk. Rinse off with warm water. Alternatively remove with a muslin cloth. 

New packaging includes a complimentary muslin cloth. 


Now although I had heard of REN skincare, I had never used it. Other friends and Bloggers rave about their products and when asked if I would like to try something, of course I said yes. I was sent the No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm which sounded amazing. Little did I know, it was going to live up to every one of my expectations.

The No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm is one of those products you need very little of when you use it. I wish I had known this the first time I used it as I wasted a lot! Still, a small amount working over the face when its dry is all you need. The product is rather ‘greasy’, like vasaline almost and spreads over the skin with ease. I wait a minute or so and all I do then is add a little water. I gentle massage my face then, this seems to help work the product into any areas that my makeup is refusing to leave and then I rinse/wipe off with a muslin cloth (That is provided with the product). My skin feels amazing afterwards. Thoroughly cleansed and clean.

REN No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm

My biggest rave about this product is that my skin has NO REACTIONS what so ever to it. I have eczema and psoriasis on my face and neither react with this product, if anything it calms them down. There are not many cleansers on the market that I can use this way and not have a reaction. I usually only use water on my face, any soaps or other cleansers bring me out in a rash or make my skin feel uncomfortable. To find a product that actually cleanses and cleans without issues really is something.

Now, to many the price tag of this product may be off putting. I may have agreed when I first used it but only because of the sheer amount I used then by accident. Since then I have found a 5p amount is enough for my face and can see the No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm lasting a good amount of time. I would definitely repurchase this product, I love the results on my skin and the way my skin feels after using it. REN Clean Skincare… I salute you!

You can purchase the REN Clean Skincare No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm directly from the REN website, it costs £23.00 for 100ml.
