Highlights
Why It's SpecialThe natural and silicone-free formula
What It DoesIt plumps, mattifies and fills in fine lines to help dramatically improve skin smoothness. Skin-boosting extracts help balance good bacteria, reducing breakouts by promoting a healthy microbiome on your skin's surface. Agave extract is responsible for helping to plump the skin and creating the smooth base for makeup while prebiotic extracts help support skin and reinforce its barrier.

Skincare + Eco-Friendliness (yes, it exists!)
Maybe you’ve been a little more environmentally conscious lately or have been a tree hugger your entire life. Whatever your case may be, I think we can all relate to the feeling of being able to do good while look good 😏🙌🏼 I personally put a lot of emphasis on being eco-friendly when it comes to the skincare industry because of how much waste can accumulate just from packaging alone. Think about how many plastic is on your shelf right now. Here are a few products/brands that are magnetized towards being eco-friendly 👇🏼💗 YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Limited Edition Pride Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser I was able to repurpose this glass bottle into another bottle for my new cleanser. The versatility of glass packaging (heavily endorsed by YTTP) is essential for skincare as it encourages the process of reusing materials without excessive waste. This cleanser is also extremely fresh and leaves my skin feeling super clean. Before, I’d go through countless plastic bottle cleansers that were both non environmentally friendly AND non effective. HERBIVORE - Prism 5% Exfoliating Glow Potion this small herbivore bottle is also made of glass and has a pipet for easy portioning of any liquids. I especially love how Herbivores products are vegan and cruelty free! This specific exfoliant worked in my favor to achieve a glow and vibrant look to my skin. I enjoyed the subtle yet effectiveness of it. REN CLEAN SKINCARE - Perfect Canvas Clean Primer when Ren skincare launches this primer, it not only came in a glass bottle but also a card with instructions on how to properly recycle it after it’s done. This was extremely intuitive on their part as it provides a physical reminder to consumers of the proper way to recycle products. The primer definitely primed my face well as I noticed my makeup staying on longer with this on due to the tacky texture. It comes out as a “serum” but blends into the skin like a “lotion.” Magic, no? Finally, as my last photo, here you can see the packaging boxes of various skincare products ive collected over the years. I cut the packages to fit into a “collage” made on a $5 target cork board with glue. The final result came out so pretty and made for the perfect gift for one of my IG friends! 😏🙌🏼 Being into skincare doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice being environmentally conscious. Being aware of brands who are striving towards the same goal as you can help streamline this habit and help encourage others to be a little more loving to mama earth 😌✨

I don’t wear face makeup very
I don’t wear face makeup very often and I’ve never really been a fan of primers one the past — they always felt like a weird film on my face and it bugged the heck out of me. I was curious to try this primer from ren skincare and am so grateful that they sent it over because it’s way different than primers I’ve tried in the past! It goes on like a serum and doesn’t feel like silicone on your face. It’s formulated with blue agave to give you that skin-smoothing effect —it’s also packaged in a recyclable glass bottle so you can feel good about the sustainable packaging!!!

SKINCARE AND PRIMER??
SKINCARE AND PRIMER??
After I used the MILK primer my skin broke out in a rash so I went back to Sephora and they offered me the REN Perfect Canvas Primer, I love it. it builds my skins strength while smoothing over pores and fine lines. It is a vegan product, cruelty-free, and is silicone free. To use I use 3-4 drops and pat it into my skin after my moisturizer and SPF. I wear this when I don’t wear makeup also because my skin is sensitive and this primer helps build my skin strength. This product is matte but doesn’t clog your pores. It is smooth on your skin and really holds onto my makeup (note: I don’t wear a lot of makeup usually just concealer, blush, and highlight). Though it is $45 it lasts for a long time and in my opinion the price is worth how long it lasts.

Sticky primer
Sticky primer
So this isn’t my favorite primer. It’s feels sticky when applied and let to dry. Sort of like having a wet film on your face. It’s cooling at first but then sticky. In terms of longevity of makeup, it’s nothing special. I’ve tried 2$ primers that have worked just as well without the feel of reside on the face. For something that costs $30, I expected more. It’s supposed to create a “smooth canvas” but it doesn’t really. It creates a sticky canvas that makeup gets trapped in and it looks like you have cakes of makeup on. Your pores are more noticeable. Obviously things you don’t want.

REN CLEAN SKINCARE - Perfect C
REN CLEAN SKINCARE - Perfect Canvas Clean Primer This is a water based primer serum that touts a silicone free formula. REN claims it minimizes pores, controls shine, and extends the wear of makeup. Unfortunately, this did none of those things for me. It being silicone free was the selling point for me since I can’t use silicones and primers that actually extend makeup wear are hard to find! This was a hot mess though. I have used both oil based and water based products but they always end up lifting, pilling, and applying patchy whether I use my fingers, a sponge, or a brush. It also gives me a bunch of little bumps on my forehead after every use - a telltale sign of irritation, no doubt from all of the fragrance in REN products. It also creates a reflective sheen on my face when I don’t apply makeup over it (doubtful it will control shine for oily folks!) and doesn’t make any visible difference for my pores. Maybe this works well with silicone based makeup over it, but to me that kinda defeats the whole point of this being silicone free. I wouldn’t recommend this product to anyone. I will say that it is nice that REN has repackaged to make it more easily recyclable since I purchased and cut the price, but I’m annoyed I dropped $54 on this a year ago. If packaging added $10 to the product, why did they chose that packaging in the first place?

A true skincare-makeup hybrid
A true skincare-makeup hybrid
A few months ago I was part of the re-launch of Ren Skincare’s Perfect Canvas Clean Primer which is kind of a skincare-makeup hybrid. I’ve been using it consistently since then and have some thoughts! This primer is marketed as a weightless, silicone-free primer that minimizes pores, controls shine and locks down makeup. I’ve worn it both under makeup and alone and it works well both ways BUT DO NOT use this under products that contain silicone because it WILL PILL VERY BADLY! Apart from that, I really like it for minimizing the appearance of pores and smoothing out fine lines as well as keeping my oils at bay. It’s a viscous liquid serum like texture and contains agave extract to mattify skin, probiotics to support natural cell renewal and alpha gluons to support a healthy skin microbiome. I like the concept of this product because it truly is a makeup-skincare hybrid — it even contains lactic acid! It’s oil free, silicone free, sulfate and paragon free and I like it best worn alone instead of under makeup. To me, it reminds me of the effects I get from a niacin amide product though it doesn’t contain any niacinamide. In looking at the ingredients, the list is short which I love but I do feel like it is important to note that it contains Parfum for those who are sensitive to fragrances. I really like this product BUT that being said there is a definite learning curve and you need to test out your products with it to see if they play nicely together because it can be finicky. It is AMAZING for controlling oil though. I would recommend it to those who are looking for an oil controlling product more so than a makeup primer because I don’t prefer to use it as such. The price is hefty and I’m not sure I would’ve picked this up on my own at $45 for 1.02 oz of product BUT that being said it is wonderful at what it claims to do. I think if you really struggle with oil control or enlarged pores this is a good product to try and if you can, get a sample at Sephora! 4/5 because of the price and the fact that it doesn’t layer well with some products.
