Ren Rosa Centifolia Cleansing Balm

Ren Rosa Centifolia No1 Purity Cleansing Balm Review

How to use No1 Purity Cleansing Balm.

Hey lovely ladies,

After reviewing REN Wake Wonderful Night Time Facial for you last week, I have today a Cleansing Balm from REN. Ever since I discovered cleansing oils/balms a couple of years back, my whole cleansing routine has changed. I dont even recollect when/if I had last used a makeup remover at the end of the day. I have only one makeup remover in my kitty the one from MAC just to rectify any mistakes while doing makeup, lets be honest for my eye makeup days! So, lets get down to it and find out more about this cleansing balm.

Product Details:Which skin type is it good for? Normal Dry Sensitive

What it is: A rose-infused, hydrating cleansing balm that transforms from balm to luxurious oil to creamy milk, gently yet thoroughly melting away impurities on the skin. Solutions for dryness, redness. Rosa Centifolia No. 1 Purity Cleansing Balm is a luxuriously rich balm-to-oil-to-milk cleanser that melts into the skin, lifting away dirt and impurities and effectively removing heavy makeup and waterproof mascara. Skin is left purified, hydrated, and refreshed. It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, or phthalates. This cruelty-free product is vegan, non-comedogenic, and formulated without gluten, mineral oil, and detergent.

Top tip: use as a 10-minute hydration mask for skin that needs some T.L.C. The scent of rose oil enhances the mood with its stress-relieving aroma therapeutic properties.


Price:$48 for 150ml Tub.

Pregnancy Safe Skincare From Ren

Pregnancy safe skincare can be super difficult and confusing. I have an entire guide devoted to what products are safe to use while pregnant including information on what ingredients to avoid while pregnant and a huge list of pregnancy safe skincare products. The list has gotten so large that Ive decided to start listing brands in their own individual posts.

Here youll find pregnancy safe products from REN Skincare as of 5/19/2020. If it is not safe, Ill tell you why. All of the products meet my pregnancy safe criteria. If they release a new product that is not listed here, please comment below and I will add it. Note I will link to every product directly to avoid confusion. Youll know exactly which product I mean.

Please note, it can take up to an hour to review the ingredient lists of each product. I review with my own list of pregnancy safe criteria. I obtain my ingredient lists from the brands and major retailers , and I review the US versions. Please do not ask me to re-review the same products over and over, I do not have the time to do so, and many people have been rude about this. For more brands, please head over to the list of pregnancy safe products.

    Not My Favorite Cleansing Balm

    I love the scent and how it doesn’t dry out my skin but I think I’ll be looking for other cleansing balms. It’s a very thick cleansing balm and doesn’t emulsify as well as I’d like. It also stings so badly if you get it into your eyes so I have to take extra care when cleansing. I prefer using one cleansing balm for all over my face and my eyes instead of reaching for multiple cleansers. I also think the packaging was a mistake. I’d prefer it in a jar/tub so that I don’t have to use so much strength to squeeze it out.

    My Experience With Ren Rosa Centifolia No1 Purity Cleansing Balm:

    Quick info on my skin type I have combination to oily skin. It goes through periodic monthly acne, so I have acne scars. Im on the wrong side of 30s, so struggling with bit of sun damage, not wearing sun screen your whole life will show up some time, right?? And my skin gets dull and dehydrated thanks to my horrible diet and terrible sleep patterns -Im a mother of 2 there are only so many hours in the day!!

    IMBB changed my life quite literally when I got to try the Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil thanks to IMBBs Sponsored product scheme! I would never have picked up that product on my own to TRY considering the price point! Quick update Im on my 3rd bottle now!! The product rocked my world and changed my night cleansing routine forever. Since using it, I have never gone back to using traditional makeup removers/micellar water/makeup remover wipes / etc. I do however, try other cleansing oils and balms from time to time, just for a change, only to come back to my trusted green bottle of Shu every single time!

    Since, I loved the last product from REN, I decided to pick up a couple more things. This product is a cleansing balm from REN. In texture, its quite like a coconut oil. You know how coconut oil solidifies a bit in winters, its squishy to touch and melts in your hand, just like coconut oil.

    Efficacy: Does the product work? Well, yes! But with caveats. Im listing down the pros and cons:

    Cons Of Ren Rosa Centifolia No1 Purity Cleansing Balm:

    Ren Rosa Centifolia No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm  Meaghers ...
    • Stings the eyes, so while it can remove waterproof mascara, you probably wouldnt want to use it as an eye makeup remover.
    • Leaves an oily film which needs to be removed with a muslin cloth.
    • Makes your cleansing process longer remove eye makeup, massage the oil, emulsify and then wipe clean with a muslin cloth, and then again rinse.
    • Wouldnt suggest for people who have concerns with fragrance in their skincare.
    • Avoid the tube packaging.

    IMBB Rating:3.8/5. I think the idea of the product is great, just something went lacking with the execution. First the packaging itself needs to change, I think they need to get rid of the tube packaging altogether. They need to re-look the formula to ensure it doesnt sting the eyes so people could actually use it to remove eye makeup and ensure that the cleansing process is one step. Wiping off with muslin isnt as big a deal as I would have thought it to be because they have anyway provided a cloth with the product and also because the end result post wiping off the excess is just amazing. Your skin feels nourished! Its difficult to explain it really has to be experienced.Would I Repurchase/Recommend REN Rosa Centifolia No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm?Nope? I am gonna be sticking to my beloved Shu Uemura!!
