I know that people are divided when it comes to the term 'clean beauty' and I totally get it as it somehow implies that products not labelled as 'clean' are somehow toxic and not safe to use, which simply isn't true. That being said, there are people who like to fill their shelves with 'clean' products - some because it's a trend, others because they don't have the time nor inclination to research skincare ingredients and just believe clean is better. To each their own is my opinion. Why am I talking about this? Today, I want to share my thoughts on REN Perfect Canvas Clean Jelly Oil Cleanser*, which obviously has clean in its name. Whether you are a fan of 'clean' beauty or not, you will probably enjoy this product.
REN Perfect Canvas Clean Jelly Oil Cleanser*: This is a tri-phase cleanser that is in jelly form, comprised with oil but then turns to milk when emulsified. Usually, I would save gel cleansers for morning use but because of the formula of this product, I can also use it at night. The texture is quite light initially and then is breaks down into an oil. It's a pleasure to massage in to melt makeup because it doesn't require a huge amount of effort and when it breaks down into an oil, it spreads very easily. When water is added, it turns into a milk and then it's rinsed away with warm water. I like to double cleanse but it really isn't necessary with this cleanser so if you aren't in the double cleanse camp, you will love this cleanser. It leaves skin feeling soft, really clean but not at all stripped (it contains glycerin) and at the same time, there doesn't feel like there's any residue on the skin despite the inclusion of oils (grape, sunflower and meadowfoam).
If you find cleansing balms a little too rich for your skin, this would be a great alternative. It would also be great for travelling as it pretty much eliminates the need for a double cleanse. It's also suitable for vegans.
The tube is made from 50% recycled plastic and the cap is made from 100% recycled plastic. Both are obviously completely recyclable so it is completely environmentally friendly.
At £25 for 100ml, it's not the cheapest cleanser on the market but it's in the mid-budget range and a little goes a long way. Purchase on the REN site, where you can receive 20% off your first order if you sign up to their newsletter., reducing it to £20.
Does this sound like a cleanser that you would like? How do you feel about the 'clean beauty' term? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
