Ren Clean Skincare
Ren Best of Body Set
Gifting has never been so sustainable—in line with the brand’s ethos, Ren’s new holiday gift sets are bigger and better, but fewer in range. This isn’t a move to cheat you out of a good deal by any means, though—the brand is just opting to offer more full-sized products as opposed to many mini sets. Quality over quantity!
The boxes are designed in collaboration with illustrator Lisa Tegtmeier, created using sustainable materials and produced in the UK.
Treat your body to the Best of Body set, which contains favourites such as the Moroccan Rose line and the Atlantic Kelp and Magnesium line. That’s right—you can score two body washes and two body lotions in two enticing scents for you or your loved ones. Talk about an absolute steal, right?
