Pollution is getting more and more each day. If you don’t pay attention to all the pollution then your skin might not be at its best condition. REN Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream, formerly known as Hydra-Calm Global Protection Day Cream, might keep your skin safe from all the effects of pollution. Good isn’t it?
I only tried a few products from REN, even though they were good, they didn’t really wow me. REN Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream is made for sensitive skin. It claims to “Protects against free radicals to combat the signs of premature ageing“.
REN Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream is a lightweight and fast absorbing cream. It doesn’t leave any greasy feeling and sticky feeling. It has an herbal scent which might take a while to get used to. When you put it on the skin, you get a little bit of soothing feeling. Also, skin looks healthier.
Well, all sounds so good so far, but is it also suitable for oily skin? From my experience, it is not the best one for oily skin. The first time I used it, I like how soft my skin felt. Then I put on my trusty foundation that I know will keep my skin look matte. After an hour or so, when I checked my makeup, my foundation just didn’t look right. It looked like I put the foundation on a cling film that it looked patchy and with one soft touch it was so easy to wipe the foundation. I can’t remember when was the last time something similar happened. I looked like a shiny ball then I had to wipe off my foundation, my skin looked way better without it. After that, I only used it the day I knew I wouldn’t wear foundation.
If you have oily skin and want to try it, ask for a sample. Test it with your foundation to see if you can make it work. It might be just my skin but in my experience, this is not the best cream to use for oily skin under the makeup.
REN Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream is £28 for 50 ml. It Even though it is suitable for all type of skin, I don’t think it would be hydrating enough for really dry skin. If you have dry skin and want to use this cream to prevent the effects of the pollution, then I’d recommend using more hydrating serum beforehand. Due to my experience with it, I don’t think I’d purchase the full-size.
