 I admit that I have a fair few moisturising creams, lotions and butters gracing my beauty collection. It's just that one product that I seem to stock up on, you will always need a good body moisturiser so why not have a decent stash to full back on?! Surely I am not alone with this way of thinking. I've dabbled with many different brands in the past however I had never tried anything by REN. You hear a lot about their skincare range but not so much their body care, so when I was offered the chance to try the REN Neroli & Grapefruit body cream* I was intrigued to see if I could sing RENs praises when it came to moisturising.

Firstly I love the packaging of the product. It has a pump dispenser which I prefer over tubes and pots, its just less messy! The product itself is housed in a bag within the tube, the more you use it, you can see the bag squeezing out the product, which is great to  indicate as to when you need to buy a back up! It's so frustrating when you cant see how much product you have left! 

REN describe this body cream as 'fresh, light & easily absorbed' and I would agree on all 3 accounts. The scent is really freshing. Nothing like I usually use, I gravitate towards vanilla scents, so it made a nice change from the norm. It really is a very lightweight formula, I think it would be best described as a lotion rather than a cream. A cream to me is thicker in consistency, this however seems to melt into your skin instantly, and then feels like liquid as you rub it in. Such a nice feeling! You don't even have to wait around for it to 'dry' before getting dressed! Always a bonus.  After the first time I used the REN Neroli & Grapefruit body cream my skin felt very soft and moisturised, this was due to the shea butter and Jojoba Oil within the cream, that helps keeps the skin nourished. With continued use my skin felt amazing. I'm actually really sad it is running out!

The  REN Neroli & Grapefruit body cream retails for £18.00, which compared to a lot of the other body moisturisers I have in my stash its breaking the bank. However, I do personally think it is worth it because I liked how it worked for me. It smells lovely, isn't greasy, sinks in very quickly and leaves my skin feeling very nourished! So I would use my own money to purchase this body cream, however for the time being I've got so many others sat in my stash thanks to birthday and Christmas gifts, I'll be set up for a while before I need any more! 

Have you tried anything from the REN body care range? Would there be anything you would recommend? 

Much love,
