For the Dry, Dehydrated or Stressed Skin: REN Rose O12 Ultra-Moisture Serum Review

by xin on February 9, 2011

To combat my dehydrated skin (dry outside oily inside) woe, I have invested quite a bomb in hope to restore the balanced state. And yes I am still trying!

With good experience using the REN Moroccan Rose Otto Bath Oil, I decided to give REN O12 Ultra Moisture Serum a try despite the rather heavy price tag.

REN O12 Ultra Moisture Serum

Housed in a glass bottle, I feel nervous each time when I am holding the bottle, for the fear of breaking it of course.

REN O12 Ultra Moisture Serum Directions

True enough, my skin feels plump with the use of this day and night.

REN O12 Ultra Moisture Serum Skin Type

Never thought I would say this but yes, the air-conditioner at my workplace dries out my skin so much I have to use products for winter.

I usually use it after toner and before moisturizer. And I do pair with another serum for hydration after using this!

It does not say how much to use, but I use 2 pumps in the day and only 1 pump at night.

REN O12 Ultra Moisture Serum Pump

I really dislike the design of the pump bottle, it makes it extremely not travel friendly!

I kept it in a pouch, and it leaked! Such a waste.  If only they could put a better pump for it.

REN O12 Ultra Moisture Serum content

This is how 2 pumps look like. The serum is quite runny hence it can be easily spread on skin. Nice!

Best of all, I love the scent!

With a month’s use, my skin feels more bearable during the day. Otherwise, it starts drying up as early as 10am when I am working! Goodness!

And on the weekends, my skin actually looks radiant when I wake up 😀

For a 30ml, it retails at RM297 (~USD$80), and I would say it is worth it IF your skin needs some major goodness. I got mine from StrawberryNet with 10% off at only USD$72.

^5! scent is the major motivator for me in any products 😛

If it smells anything like the body oil I love I’m going to love it. But I don’t have very dehydrated skin for now…

it smells ALMOST EXACTLY like like the body oil 😀 one doesn’t need a reason to try something new right? 😛

That’s an expensive serum! But it’s good to know it works well. I like the bottle, it’s elegant but I’m so clumsy I’d be afraid of breaking it.

I’ve got oily skin but with surface dryness; i find using Haba’s 100% pure Squalane oil works best for me at night.
