REN V-cense cream review

E: What on earth were you up to the other night, M? I saw tweets about Frankincense and frankincensely, I’m puzzled.

M: I went to a bloggers’ event about REN’s anti-ageing skincare. Average bloggers’ age: 23.

E: Huh. Why do they need anti-ageing? Or perhaps they are actually 43 and IT WORKS?

M: Could be. Katie, their marketing lady, looked about 17, and she’s been working there for seven years. She’s either a prodigy, or a black sorceress. Or it’s the V-Cense cream, with “Frankincense and Boswellic acid to relax facial muscles”. You’ve used that, haven’t you?

E: I’m using it now. I like it.

M: Oh? The smell bothers me. I’m scared to put it on my skin because I don’t want to smell like Baby Jesus.

E: I like the smell, it’s pine fresh, like facial Cif. My current attitude to skin care is very simple, M. I like it if it doesn’t give me hideous break outs and does the job. This V-Cense (caution: space lizards at work) does that.

M: You’ve been eating live mice, haven’t you. You don’t care about the free radicals. Or the fact Vitamin C is a “big story”.

E: I don’t. This stuff is fine. It doesn’t give me angry monkey face and that’s my gold standard in skin care, right now.

M: Well that’s a ringing endorsement.

E: It is! And we have a pot of this frankincense infused goop to give away so that one of your faces can not look like an angry monkey too!

M: All you have to do is answer this question in the comments before 14 February 2014 (ooooh!): What does the V in V-Cense stand for? Silly answers only, please.

REN V-cense Youth Vitality Cream (£28) and Revitalising Night Cream (£32)

M likes bright powders in tiny pots and anything that will make her hair more Jen Brill and less Shaun the Sheep.

    It’s not a letter – it’s a roman numeral offering a screen to anything more than the standard 5 senses (or censes obv) in addition to a less haggy face. If you use this and Bruce Willis dies you will not be troubled by his wife bothering ghost.

    “V” stands for “vitriol”. Put it on your face, keep it out of your heart and BAM eternal youth. It’s all very evil stepmother in Snow White. This product doesn’t have a pig’s heart in it, right?

    Vagina. I actually was going to type Virgins but my ipad was way ahead of me, so I’m sticking with it. There’s a terrible joke there about vaginas and sticking, but I’m ignoring it.

    I need this cream. I’m 50 and look like I’m smuggling things into the country in my eyebags.

    V stands for Vitamin C! V-cense is Vitamin C/Frankincense, am I right?!

  • February 3, 2014


    Or “vanity.” It could stand for “vanity.” Better that than “vehicular homicide.” Which, technically, would be VH, so … never mind.

    Surely it stands for voodoo…space lizard voodoo?!

  • February 4, 2014


    Has to be vulpine. For its foxy bestowing properties.

  • February 7, 2014


    It doesn’t stand for anything, like the ‘v’ in Pantene pro-v. Or it stands for vavavoom.

    clearly it’s “vuvuzela,” the stately instrument the three kings played as they marched solemnly towards the Christ-child with their offerings of anti-ageing frankincense creams etc.

    Vanishing–this goop sounds just like grandma’s old fashioned vanishing cream, and if you use it long enough the anti-aging space rays will cause you to disappear.

    Fulfill an application form with the required details as regards your earnings
    and bank account. In many cases, payday loan repayment fees are considerably less than the overdraft rates many UK banks
    would demand. So if this is repeated statewide then it’s a huge problem for their criminal justice system.
