If your sensitive skin is in need of a new gentle skincare product to battle winter dryness, then I have a review of a brand-new and very interesting balm-to-oil REN Evercalm™ Overnight Recovery Balm to share with you. MY skin is getting dryer and flakier in winter. Instead of piling layers of night cream and oil, balm-to-oil may be a nice alternative! REN Evercalm is a popular range that is designed for sensitive skin types.

REN Evercalm™ Overnight Recovery Balm $48 for 30ml. According to REN…Put sensitivity to sleep – literally. Evercalm™ Overnight Recovery Balm targets sensitivity, dryness and inflammation, while boosting skin’s natural regeneration process. Its unique balm-to-oil texture replenishes the skin’s lipid barrier and deeply moisturizes, with a fast-absorbing, pillow-friendly formula that’s never oily, greasy or heavy.
Skin-loving oils like olive, almond, borage and linseed are enzymatically activated to increase their antioxidant level and make them absorb both quicker and more deeply. Skin is left feeling ultra-calm due to the anti-inflammatory beta-glucans in the lightweight, nourishing formula.
How to Use: At night, use fingertips to melt the balm onto face and gently massage until absorbed.
IcanGWP Review: The first five ingredients are estor of fatty acid and glycerin that are more cusioney, not oily and not heavy. Almond, Borage, Sunflower, Linseed and Olive Oils are powerful ingredients to deeply replenish and nourish skin. Also, a rare Beta-Glucans anti-inflammatory ingredient can ease irritation and prevents flare-ups. What draws me, who has combination acne prone skin, to this nighttime balm from REN is that it doesn’t contain silicone. Their formulas are made with natural ingredients that don’t irritate skin.
The package is nice and clean with metal protective plate. The glass jar has a clean modern design. The yellow balm looks delicious almost like pie filling. It has a pleasant spa-like botanical aroma. The balm melts into lightweight oil when we warm it on our finger or palm.
It doesn’t feel balmy or pastey—like something we only want to put on our elbows or knees. I love massaging it in. As a result, I need to use more than I expected. It creates a luxurious layer of protecting film. It’s very soothing and nourishing, something perfect for winter.
I find it can stay on better than just applying night cream for a side sleeper. My skin is incredibly soft and continued to be plump till next morning. I’m really wondering how could they make it. It’s so soft, unlike other cream or oil could do – soft like we just took off our sheet mask. This formula is promised to boost skin’s natural recovery overnight. It should provide a great long term improvement. For oily skin, I wouldn’t recommend using it every night to avoid clogged pores. Also, I wouldn’t use it for daytime because the oil would interfere with our makeup.
I don’t have skin redness in autumn for this goodie to calm, but several reviewers have reported that it helped their skin tremendously. Especially those with dryness problems from retinol, acid and rosacea. From a total of 19 reviewers at Sephora, it gets 5 stars from 18 reviewers and 4 stars from 1 reviewer (because the jar is too small).
