Ren Cleansing Balm Review (Rosa Centifolia No. 1 Purity Cleansing Balm)

ren cleansing balm review
I’ve just received an e-mail from REN confirming that they’re 100% cruelty-free! This prompted me to review a product from them that I’ve been using for a while now: their cleansing balm.

What it does

This cleansing balm is used at night to remove makeup in a gentle yet efficient way. It removes all trace of makeup, including eye makeup. It has a thick and rich consistency and a lovely light flowery scent. I usually massage my face while taking off my makeup with it, making the whole experience pretty relaxing! Because it’s a balm, it’s super gentle and doesn’t dry out your face like other makeup removers, but it doesn’t clog pores either. I’m prone to breakouts and this never broke me out.


  • Removes all trace of makeup.
  • Gentle, provides moisture.
  • Doesn’t make me break out.
  • Works for all skin types.
  • Comes with a muslin cloth.
  • It smells sooo good. Seriously.


  • A bit pricey at 48$.

Verdict: A

Cleansing balms are (arguably) the best way to remove makeup, and this is my favorite cleansing balm. Better than Clinique’s Take The Day Off by far. It makes the whole experience of removing makeup so lovely and relaxing. Highly recommended.

    Does that mean it is automatically vegan? :)
