I received these two products (and a few more that have yet to be featured) for review a while ago. I was super curious about them, because REN seems to be all the rage in the blogging world lately, so I couldn't wait to see what all the fuss was about. I started using these two products on a daily basis and I really can't recommend them enough! For my combination skin, which is oily on the T-zone and has dry patches on the cheek area and especially under the eyes, these are miracle workers.

Now my T-zone is very very oily, it's actually so bad that I have to wash my hair everyday because of it (I have a fringe, and if I don't put it up, it gets very greasy because of contact with my skin). This is where the REN T-Zone Balancing Day Fluid* comes into effect. I use it as a day cream, as I really don't need mattifying in the nighttime, and I apply it to my whole face, steering clear of the eye area. The feeling it leaves on the skin? You can definitely feel that it's on at first, but that disappears in a matter of minutes. After that, your skin feels pleasantly refreshed. I don't even use foundation now that I'm using this - I just dust a really light layer of translucent powder over my skin and I'm good for the day. The smell is very pleasant as well. So all in all, definitely a thumbs up for this one. If you want matte skin, especially now in the summertime, this is a must-have!

The second thing I implemented in my skincare routine is the REN Active 7 Radiant Eye Gel*. This is my favorite out of the two and I cannot praise it enough. A standout product for sure! What I love about this eye gel is the instant cooling sensation it brings to my skin. It's clear and you need a very tiny amount (one pump may seem like too little, but it's perfect) for both eyes. It will also tighten the under eye area without feeling weird or annoying, and it will decrease puffiness and reduce the appearance of under eye circles. I apply this whenever my eyes feel tight and itchy, and it relieves them in an instant. Don't forget to apply it before you go to sleep, because you will wake up with refreshed and cooled down eyes, not tired at all.

These products are great to use alone or together, depends on what kind of skin you have. I find the combination of battling my oily T-zone and cooling and tightening my eye area works wonders! I'm very curious to try other REN products now, especially the masks which seem to be all the rage in the blogging world. The good news is, REN has stockists all around the world, and it's even available here in Slovenia (whoop whoop)!
