A Fab Discount Code + WIWT - Lace & Denim

Morning ladies.  So before I show you what I'm wearing, I've got a fantastic discount code to share.

I've recently been contacted by REN Skincare & have been trialling a couple of their products - the Flash Defence Anti-Pollution Mist & a new product which launches in September called Flash Hydro-Boost.

Now for anyone who is unaware of the brand or has yet to give them a try REN Skincare was formed 15 years ago & uses only 100% plant & mineral derived actives in all its products.  With a range designed to offer ground breaking product formulation teamed with the latest hi-tech actives that offers clinically proved results following rigorous product testing.

And Flash Hydro-Boost

The Flash Defence Anti-Pollution Mist is a fine mist that can be used over your make up & re-applied throughtout the day, designed to 'shield & protect the skin from ageing effects of environmental pollution & harmful free radicals'.  It works by forming a non-sticky barrier over your skin to reduce the damaging effects from the environment, which will instantly protect & with regular use help to reduce the premature ageing effect of environmental pollution.  I've been using the product for a couple of weeks & love the fact that I can't feel the product on my skin & find it really refreshing to regularly spray the product over my face & neck during the course of the day.  So much so that I think it will be a perfect way of feeling fresh faced when we're on holiday so is definitely coming away with us.

The second product - Flash Hydro-Boost has the most amazing smell without being too heavily scented & is designed to instantly plump the skin & over time will protect the skin from the ageing effects of dehydration by reducing fine line & preventing water loss from the skin.  This product is massaged into the skin after cleansing & is used daily prior to moisturising.  Again I'm really liking the product (I've only been using it for a week so it's too early to see any real results) but I shall definitely continue with it as any product that promises to plump, smooth & hydrate my skin can only be a good thing.

Now as I mentioned earlier I've got a fantastic discount code to share with you that can be used across REN Skincare's entire range.  Simply use the code BLOG20 here to get 20% off everything!

Back to today & I'm taking a few hours off work later for a lazy afternoon tea with the girls for bubbles, cake & a catch up before we all go away on our various summer holidays.  We're incredibly lucky to all live in the same village & also have a wonderful tea room in the next village that makes the most amazing afternoon tea, so as there's going to be bubbles involved we're walking to the tearoom - luckily it's only around a mile away but still I'm going with flats & a casual look to avoid any potential sore feet or falling over ;-)

  1. Mornin Jane! Lace with jeans is one of my fave jean combos. Today I'm wearing scruffy old jeggings and t shirt - suitable attire for Day 2 of our sheds clear out project!
    Yes, be sensible with the footwear choice. On Friday night I did the 15 min walk in the heat to our local all fresco eatery wearing just simple flatties and am now accessorising my look with a gigantic heel blister. Should have worn Birkies to allow my feet to expand in the heat. My tip of the day!
    Enjoy your tea n catchup.

    1. Morning Mary it sounds like you've got a busy day ahead but one that will give you a lot of satisfaction once it's completed.
      Ouch to the blister - there's nothing worse than sore feet. After my operation on my toes last year I just don't have the patience anymore for uncomfortable shoes. Although a top tip have you tried the Compeed anti blister stick? It definitely helps avoid rubbing & stops blisters forming.
      Good luck with the sort out.

    2. Thanks for the tip, Jane. Will get some. And yet another erratum, al fresco. Bloomin spellcheck.

    3. Thanks for the tip, Jane. Will get some. And yet another erratum, al fresco. Bloomin spellcheck.

  2. Erratum: above reads as though I was dressed in flatties only. Not a good look with my body. For the record, I was wearing a brown Bardot dress too!

  3. Hi Jane
    As I work part-time in the beauty business, I've been lucky enough to sell & use various elements in the facial skincare & body ranges that REN produce. I love the Seaweed & Sage body wash with its clean fresh smell & ergonomic bottles which you get every last drop out of & love that the brand stand for purity, performance & pleasure. It is nice to see you enjoying the new lines. Regards Sarah P

  4. Hi Sarah thanks for the tip about their Seaweed & Sage body wash I shall definitely add it to my list of products to try. Especially if you don't end up leaving any in the bottle at the end - that's a real bug bear of mine & I'll always cut my tubes in half & make sure I use every last bit. It's surprising how much is left when you cut packaging open.
    Jane xx
