Ren Micro Polish Cleaner

An exfoliant-and-cleanser-in-one to battle the changing seasons


To help keep skin soft and healthy before winter rolls in, we’ve been using Ren’s Micro Polish Cleanser. The two-in-one formula combines a deep clean with gentle exfoliation to rejuvenate and purify the skin a few times a week, as part of Ren’s Radiance Range. Having used the cleanser for a few months, we’ve now reserved a coveted permanent place for it in the bathroom cabinet.

What made us fans of the British brand in the first place—”skincare as it should be”—all Ren products have an ingredient list of healthy, mostly natural active ingredients derived from fruits and vegetables. The three main bio-actives here include amber micro-beads to start the exfoliation, papain from Mexican papayas to further exfoliate and reduce inflammation and pineapple-based glycolic acid to decongest pores and leave the skin’s surface feeling significantly renewed. Other natural cleansing agents and non-intrusive chemicals in the Cleanser also help to reduce pore size and fine lines.

The 100-milliliter tube sells for $30 from Amazon.
