REN VS Liz Earle - Face Mask Face Off #6


I've got another face off for you for today's post and it's two brilliant brands going head to head with radiance renewal masks and deep cleansing clay masks. I'm going to keep this as quick and to the point as possible as there's a lot of information to share. 

REN Glycolacic Radiance Renewal Mask 
Designed to renew the complexion and reduce appearance of fine lines and dramatically improve skin tone. 
It's a potent bio active peel mask, so it contains Glycolic Acid, Lactic acid, Citric acid and tartaric acid, which all work to gently exfoliate and encourage cell renewal. It also contains Omegas 3 to repair, regenerate and prevent scarring, Omega 7 to repair and reduce chronic inflammation, and Papain to help exfoliate the skin and reduce inflammation. 
More powerful than any other radiance boosting masks I've tried.

Main ingredients: grape, black current, cranberry, lemon, papaya, pineapple, mandarin orange, orange, tangerine, grapefruit - oils and extracts. 

REN Clarimate Invisible Pores Detox Mask 
Designed to reduce appearance of pores and blackheads and leave skin purified, smooth and toned. It also works to draw out impurities which can lead to breakouts at first, because it's bringing those spots to the surface to get rid of them, but if used regularly, your skin will improve. 
French kaolin clay is used to detoxify the skin and absorb excess sebum and impurities. Proteins are used to energise and stimulate cellular renewal, and Lavender, blue cypress and bergamot, purify and soothe the skin. 

Main ingredients: Lavender oil, kaolin, lactic acid, bergamot fruit oil, 

REN is available in Marks & Spencer's and online at feelunique.com

Liz Earle Deep Cleansing Mask 
Formulated for oily combination or problem prone skin. The clay draws out impurities and balances the skin and keep it calm. Green clay draws out the impurities, manuka honey has antibacterial and anti microbial properties and is nourishing and soothing for the skin as well - a great ingredient for any skin care products and any skin concerns. 
Comes with yellow exfoliating sponges to gently remove product and anything the mask has drawn out. What's even better is that this only takes 5-10 minutes. 
Not suitable for sensitive skin. 

Main ingredients: geranium essential oil, glycerin, aloe vera, kaolin (green clay), manuka honey, white clay, propolis, 

Liz Earle Brightening Treatment 
For dull, lack lustre skin, a quick brightening treatment to boost complexions radiance in less than 2 minutes. Can be used for a quick fix morning or night and is very gentle yet effective at instantly revitalising dull skin. 
Purifying white clay, stimulating camphor oil, soothing aloe vera and toning witch hazel are what makes this treatment amazing. 
Not suitable for sensitive skin.

Main ingredients: aloe vera, sweet almond oil, witch hazel water, camphor oil, green mineral silt ??, white clay, 

Liz Earle is available in some John Lewis and Boots stores and online at lizearle.com 

I think all 4 of the face masks are great in their own way. REN Glycolactic Mask is a lot more potent and I tend to use that before a bug occassion or if I need my skin to look perfect. The REN Clay Mask is a great one for little bumps on my skin from a bad reaction, if I haven't used a face mask recently, or if my skin is just a bit congested. For the Liz Earle Clay Mask, I use that if my skin is very congested and I can feel breakouts forming under the skin. This has magical powers at bringing them to the surface very fast, and I believe using the sponges to remove it is also what makes a huge difference and I have started using these with any clay masks I use. As for the Liz Earle Brightening Treatment, this is a super quick, instant facial in a bottle. This brightens the complexion, no irritation, no waiting around for half an hour, this is fast, effective and it's very affordable. 

Unfortunately although I can't pick my absolute favourite, I like them all for different reasons and which one I use depends on what my skin is doing. 

Have you tried any other masks like these?
