A Lilac Encounter With REN Clean Skincare @ Ken's Apothecary, Bangsar Village 2

Hello lovelies! Not long ago, I was invited exclusively from The Lilac Box team (Thanks to the 3 guys) to have an Lilac Encounter with REN Clean Skincare. All Lilac Bloggers gathered at Ken's Apothecary to witness what's REN Clean Skincare is mainly about. I'm pretty new about this product and I'm excited to find out what's good about this brand. :D

While waiting for the workshop to get started, all of us were served a delicious afternoon tea time with fancy English tea and also some delicious finger foods such as scones, cakes and macaroons too! 
Tea pots and cups is so fancy! 

The workshop started with Terry Tian, Marketing Manager of Ken's Apothecary, who gave a introduction brief and products available about REN Clean Skincare. This guy knows everything about skincare, simply shoot him a question and he will give you a suggestion and an advise which to use for your suitable skin! (Because I'm the one who asked, hehe.)

To make it simple, REN basically means CLEAN in Swedish which they summed up their concept of no petrochemicals, sulfates, parabens, silicons, glycons, phthalates, synthetic fragrance nor any colour into their products OR just to be short and simple, all products are 100% from nature. 

REN Clean Skincare is a London-based company that creates the concept of Clean Bio Active Skincare with plant-based ingredients which is formulated to help your skin to rejuvenate and repair. 

REN Clean Skincare provides healthier and beautiful skin that will look youthful in a long run which REN's philosophy can be summed up in 3 words; Performance, Purify, Pleasure

  • Performance : REN gives you groundbreaking product formulation, the latest hi-tech actives, rigorous product testing and clinically proven results.
  • Purify: REN uses only 100% plant and mineral derived actives and is free from skin-unfriendly synthetic ingredients *.
  • Pleasure: REN believe that the texture, fragrance and experience of using REN can make the world a slightly nicer place to be and make us feel slightly nicer being here.

 "Your Skin is a Lifetime Investment Plan" 

What's great about REN Skincare is that 2.5% of their profit will be donated to campaigns that promotes green environment which they are really helping to give back something to the community. 

During briefing, Terry did mentioned that REN Skincare is provided REN Travel Bag for all British Airways in First Class Flights! WOAHHHH, Sounds very luxury right?

If Malaysian Airlines has this kind of complimentary, that would be great! 

REN consists of 8 types of skincare ranges :

  • Normal Range
  • Combination Range
  • Dry Range
  • All Skin Types Range 
  • Blemish Prone Range
  • Radiance Range 
  • Anti-Aging Range 
  • Sensitive Range 

Here's some of the pictures that I've taken during the workshop. 
By the way, most of the pictures is in yellowish which I think my little camera can't make it brighter :(
 Normal Skin Range 
 All Skin Types Range
 Radiance Range 

 Moroccan Rose Otto Range - REN's bodycare range (Best Selling in Malaysia!)

To be specific, Moroccan Rose Otto Body Wash is the best selling product among Malaysian customers because of it's lovely rose scent and also, famously known for 100% Natural Rose Oil that is grown, harvested,  from Atlas Mountains of Southern Moroccan with no preservatives and no artificial! 

Oh! By the way, did I mentioned that Rose Otto is the Most Expensive Essential Oil? Yes, they are way expensive than gold! Due to Moroccan workers that needed to handpicked roses at dawn and to produce a bottle of Moroccan Rose Otto Bath Oil, they need more than 10,000 roses just to produce! 

Here's a overall view of all different ranges and every range has colour coded which consumers won't get confused with all the products. 

REN products uses vaccum packaging which is pumped out of the pack where the air does not flow into the bottle, as you can see in the picture below. This kind of packaging designed as a preservative that kills bugs which this design can also prevents air from coming to contact with the product. However, reducing the use of preservative and the 100% natural fragrance used in the product stays as fresh as possible. 

I did requested for my facial condition that I need a boost of whitening since I think it's not enough for my face. And so, Terry recommended the Radiance Range and he specifically brought out this product and he mentioned that this is a best seller for radiance range because it designed to renew the complexion, reduce the appearance of fine lines and dramatically improve skin tone and it works in just 10 minutes! 
 Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask 

Does it work? Let's take it to a test. 
 Ken's Apothecary's staff helped me to take a little test on my hands and firstly, she cleanse my hands with Mirco Polish Cleanser to cleanse out the dirt.
Later, she squeezed out a generous amount of the Radiance Renewal Mask and applied on my hands and leave it about 10 minutes. 

Here's the results. (no filter okay!)

She only applied the mask on my right of my hand and the left was nothing lol

The result was pretty obvious as you can see on the picture and once I saw the difference with my naked eyes and I was like.....WOAHHH that's a huge difference!! 
The result was fantastically gave my hand a whitening and glowing complexion and some fine lines has faded almost 70%. My skin on my hand looks more healthier, radiant, and brighter too!

Now I'm considering to purchase one for myself. 

All of us didn't went back empty handed, instead Ken's Apothecary and REN gave all Lilac Bloggers a goodie bag that is filled with best-selling products for us to try! Yay I'm bound with excitement to try the Moroccan Rose Otto Bath Oil, especially for my dry legs >,<
