“Magnesium is always my go-to when I need something soothing to combat burnout,” says beauty editor Cassie Steer. She recommended this scrub to us during our Skin Week last year. She added, “I find that the salts in this scrub really help to relieve muscle fatigue.” The formula’s Atlantic kelp extract and micro-algae oil, meanwhile, help to detoxify and nourish the skin. It’s now a third off at Look Fantastic: £12, down from £18.
International makeup artist Ruby Hammer MBE — who (like Steer) was initially gifted the scrub and (like Steer) has since rebought it — likes to maximise its benefits by using it after exercise. “This is a smart scrub to use after working out,” she explained. “As well as being a great exfoliant, it’s relaxing and extremely refreshing.” Also good to know is that Ren is a brand treading lightly on the planet, with eco credentials that include sourcing sustainable ingredients and packaging, and intending to become zero-waste by 2021. “Because all the ingredients are super-natural, I like the fact that I don’t need to worry about what’s going down the plug,” said Steer.
