Review | REN Vita-Mineral Day Cream

Hello Angels
Time to review yet another product - REN Vita  Mineral Day Cream
I walked into the store to get myself the REN Radiance Renewal mask. Unfortunately it was out of stock. Which led me into scanning the shelves for other REN products to try. I ended up buying their day cream. Given the quality and wonderful feedback on most REN products including my favorite mask , i saw absolute no risk in bagging this one.

My skin type is normal. I experience blemishes and dryness on a small scale. So you can tell, i wasn't actually asking much from a moisturizer except to keep my skin well balanced and healthy. I have been using this product for over 2 months now. And these are my thoughts about it

Pros - The cream has a good manageable texture. It evens out your skin tone, which was required for me in certain areas of my face. It makes your skin appear bright and clean. Plus i also like the pump dispenser which allows me to get the right quantity out

Cons - A disclaimer before i proceed, the cons clearly overrides the pros when it comes to this product. 
Dryness  - I like the fact that the cream doesn't make my face oily but neither does my skin feel moisturized. Though the texture is creamy, within a few seconds after application, my skin feels dry and rough! 
Really dry!
Dry patches - I rarely get dry patches. And man how much i hate 'em! Even a very basic moisturizer should help in fighting rough patches. Depending on the quality of the product the time taken to achieve the same may vary. This product however, has been of no help to me in getting rid of my dry patches. In fact i now doubt i got them in the first place from using it. 
Strong Scent - I prefer face creams with a light scent. This product carries a very strong scent for a day cream. If i am to apply it first thing in the morning, i am sure to end up with a headache. This however, may differ from person to person.

Overall, i will surely not re purchase this product. Quite a disappointing product considering the price and all the other wonderful REN skin cares. I intend to finish it though by using it as a hand cream. 

Have you tired this product? Do you agree with me? Advice me a good daily moisturizer

  1. Hearing about your dry patches put me in the mind to recommend the Olay va-va-vivid powered cleansing system. I did a review on the product (link here). Basically my biggest issue is dry skin/patches..discoloration too but I'll take that over dryness. I haven't tried anything else from the line but the cleansing system helped with my dry patches. As for moisturizer, ponds and cetaphil are my best brands. It's weird how I prefer drugstore skincare over anything!
