There’s a new day cream in town. You know me, I love REN products but I wasn’t sold on their Vita Mineral Day Cream. It was a great day cream. Easy wear under makeup, just enough moisture and never greasy. But, it wasn’t special. So I went looking!
I had been interested in testing REN’s Hydra Calm Global Protection Day Cream and recently bought a bottle.
From REN, here is the description of Hydra Calm: An antiaging moisturizer for skin that is delicate or affected by everyday stressors like smoke and pollution. An optimal cream for sensitive skin, this moisturizer hydrates and replenishes skin, leaving it protected and looking beautifully healthy. Skin feels calmed and soothed. Antioxidant ingredients protect against free radicals to combat the signs of premature aging. Free of: Fragrance, parabens, petrochemicals, sulfates, synthetic colors, silicones, glycols.
After two weeks, here are my thoughts:
REN Hydra Calm smells better, it has an herbal, clean smell
REN Vita Mineral is thicker, but that doesn’t mean it is more moisturizing
REN Hydra Calm seems to absorb more easily and more quickly
Price difference: Vita Mineral = $45, Hydra Calm = $55
While it’s a little too soon to tell if it actually makes a visible difference on my skin, so far, I’m a big fan of Hydra Calm. If you have sensitive skin, REN has an entire Hydra Calm line of products, from an anti-aging serum to a cleansing milk.
