Ren Skincare - Frankincense Revitalising Night Cream Review

Hey guys, sorry it's been a while I haven't really found the time for blogging as late and I do apologise, and will make a conscious effort to post more!

I recently discovered this night cream after realising that in the winter months I need to moisturise both morning and night in order to keep my skin smooth and hydrated, so I rifled through my drawer and found this sample I received (click here for previous Ren Review)

 This cream absolutely works wonders and I couldn't believe how smooth my skin felt in the morning after using this and has become a staple in my skincare routine over the past few weeks. The product is non greasy, absorbs really easily and feels smooth and is pleasant to put on. It has a subtle scent but nothing too overpowering.

I think when my sample size runs out this is definitely something I will look into purchasing.
