This 1 Minute Facial May Make You a Morning Person
I’m not a morning person, and it shows. I tend to wake up with puffy eyes, dull skin and pillow creases on my face, and it takes at least an hour before I feel — and look — even a little bit awake.
The newest offering from high-performance natural skincare brand REN is made for not-so-early-bird types like me. The REN Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial ($48) is an instant skin pick-me-up that wakes up your complexion in the time it takes to brush your teeth — and the results are amazing enough to get me out of bed before 8 A.M.
Don’t let the word “facial” make you think using the product is a fussy affair; it’s the opposite. The treatment starts out as a gentle scrub that you massage over dry skin for a few seconds. Next, you wet your fingertips and massage for a few more seconds to unleash a potent dose of water-activated 10 percent vitamin C, as the product turns from a grainy paste to a smooth gel. Leave it on for a minute, then rinse it off to reveal super soft, instantly brighter, wide awake skin. Over time, the vitamin C can even help firm your complexion and diminish dark spots.
I’ve yet to find any other skincare product that gives me a glow as fast as this one. Short of a cup of black coffee, it’s the quickest way to rise and, well, shine.
