REN Clarimatte T-zone Control Cleansing Gel - Review

Ren was launched in 2000 and uses only 100% plant and mineral derived actives and is free from skin-unfriendly synthetic ingredients.  REN’s philosophy of Clean Skincare can be summed up in three words: Performance, Purity, Pleasure. 

When I was recently sent a package full of amazing Ren skincare products I was so excited to try it out. I have really sensitive skin and when ever I use something different it always backfires and I'm left with sore molehills all over my face, but after doing a little research I was really excited to try a more natural product out. 

A balancing, antibacterial facial cleansing gel for skin that is prone to oiliness and breakouts, particularly in the T-zone.

Promises to:
Removes dirt and dissolves excess sebum
Unclogs pores.
Reduces the appearance of pore size.
Antimicrobial and antibacterial

Skin TypeCombination skin, RSPR325 for 150ml, Size: 150ml 5.1 fl oz

The cleanser has a gel consistency and doesn't foam at all when washing and has a really light fresh scent. Even though I totally know this is a gel formula I always have it in my mind that if my cleanser doesn't foam then it doesn't clean which I know isn't true. It is really gentle on the skin, only after using a product like this do you realize how harmful other face washes really are. It hasn't caused any breakouts so I can tell you that it does help there. I don't have large pores so I can't say if it does minimize them and I haven't seen much of a change in my t-zone section with regards to oil control but it doesn't leave your skin feeling tight or dry in fact it's felt much softer. It doesn't remove eye makeup at all really but I always use a eye makeup remover for this so it doesn't really bother me. I would definitely recommend and repurchase this facial cleanser.  

Available at selected Woolworths, Foschini and Edgars stores.


  1. I also adore this product. In fact I have a bit of a REN addiction since all of their products are so good and feel so kind to my skin!
