Summer time is the best time!!! So many fun things to do, with swimming being one of my faves- I don’t care if it’s a pool or the beach, I love, love, love the water!
With the heat, you really need to make sure to stay hydrated (water again!), and that includes your skin, too. So, when REN sent me their new Flash Hydro-Boost Instant Plumping Emulsion (in its own “swimming pool,” complete with inflatable!), I was ecstatic!
Having oily skin, I’m often skeptical of hydrating products. I love REN’s Glycol Lactic Mask, 1-Minute Flash Facial, and rose water, so I trust these people. Although this product is supposed to provide extreme hydration, it’s made for all skin types. Woo hoo!!!

REN Clean Skincare Flash Hydro-Boost Instant Plumping Emulsion utilizes unique technology that acts as a water-activated hydration booster to instantly plump the skin and prevent dehydration. This seemingly magical formula contains hyaluronic acid to boost water in the cells, plumping from within; peptides to help transport and allow the circulation of water throughout the skin; xylitol to help capture water from the environment; and ceramides, fatty acids, and phospholipids help create a barrier to protect against hydration loss.
REN Flash Hydro-Boost purportedly results in instantly plumped skin with a fuller, smoother appearance. Over time, it also helps reduce fine lines and prevents water loss, as well as protects the skin from the aging effects of dehydration.
If you’ve tried any of the Korean splash masks (isn’t K-beauty fab?), this is very similar. You simply apply the product by smoothing it onto cleansed skin, wet your fingertips, then activate by massaging the water from your fingers into the skin, using circular motions until fully absorbed. That’s it!
The REN Flash Hydro-Boost is housed in a tube with a pump, so it’s very sanitary and convenient to use. It’s easy to dispense a little or a lot, depending on your needs. The formula has a lotion-like consistency that is easy to apply and spread. Although this is a hydrating treatment, there’s no greasiness or stickiness.
The only negative is that the product does contain fragrance. However, it’s all natural, dissipates quickly, and is not overpowering. But, if you’re like me, you LOVE fragrance in skincare products, and this scent is absolutely heavenly. It’s kind of a spicy herbal smell that’s very relaxing. I would seriously consider putting this all over my body if I thought the fragrance would last, it smells THAT good!
After using REN Flash Hydro-Boost, my skin really did feel smoother, and the fine lines in my eye area were plumped, so I can’t wait to see the long-term results. I wasn’t going to put on makeup today, but I was so excited about this stuff, that I did just to see how well it worked when I did my face. My makeup went on easier, and my skin looked really radiant all day.
Overall, this is a stupendously awesome product, and I predict it will probably sell out. It will be released on August 1, but you can preorder now from REN Skincare for $42.00, so don’t miss out!
