The Perfect Night Cream


If you have dry or dehydrated skin and you’re looking for a truly fantastic night cream to use over your serum then look no further. I find that REN never disappoint with their skincare and this also rings true for the V-Cense Revitalising Night Cream. Firstly, I’ve got to state that REN is one of my favourite natural skincare brands and if you’re a regular reader of The Beauty Boardroom then you’ll already know that I refuse to use skincare products containing any nasties; all REN products are free from parabens, sulphates, mineral oil, petrolatum, synthetic fragrances & colours, TEA, DEA, glycols, silicones and PEGS.

Now that we’ve established that the ingredients list is absolutely top notch, what makes this the perfect night cream? It pretty much does everything that you’d want your night cream to do. It contains Vitamin C & Citroflavonoids that boost collagen formation and protect from free radicals, Phytosterols from Camellia and Wheat Germ that boost lipid content as well as Frankincense and Boswellic Acid that smooth wrinkles and fine lines. So all in all, it revitalises, hydrates, evens out the skin tone, combats the signs of premature ageing and keeps the skin looking plump. The only other ingredient I would’ve liked to see to make this product beyond perfect is hyaluronic acid since it’s my star ingredient for hydration. However, this isn’t too much of an issue as I combine this night cream with a hyaluronic acid serum like Hydraluron from Indeed Labs and that right there is just perfection.

The scent is gorgeous, mainly of frankincense, and the texture is rather thick. This would be fantastic for the colder months, which in London is almost every month! I highly recommend this product for anyone looking for a nourishing night cream that just gets the job done. It’s available on REN’s website here.
