I'm sure most of you in the blogging world or regular beauty blog readers will have heard of REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask as it's been raved about here there and everywhere this past year.  It's been on my beauty wishlist for the past three months so when I saw this cute little radiance set on for just £32.00 I couldn't resist adding it to my basket and splashing out on some high end skincare.  You get the full sized mask and sample sizes of three other REN products from the radiance range including a muslin cloth.

This product is the main reason I purchased this gift set and when I tried it for the first time I noticed it had quite an off-putting smell to it and felt like I was applying honey to my face.  However, I haven't let the smell or sticky residue put me off this little wonder product as it does amazing things for my skin (yey!)
You apply a decent layer all over your face (excluding eye area), leave it to set for 10 minutes then using a damp muslin cloth gently remove the mask using ciculuar motions.  After using this mask a few times - each time it has left my skin EXTREMELY soft and gave me a healthy glow to the skin without making my oily skin look..well... oily basically. 
I will continue to use this mask as a weekly skin treat and can see this 50ML tube last me around 5-6 months so I've definitely got my moneys worth here.

Now I've only used this once but it felt really nice and the smell is a gorgeous citrus scent, it smells very fresh and uplifting.  This isn't a daily cleanser but is recommended to be used 2-3 times per week then to be followed by the Radiance Perfection Serum.  I'm not really looking for radiance but like I said the only reason this set was bought was because of the mask so these little samples are a bonus.  This polish cleanser gently exfoliates your skin whilst cleansing, it left my skin completely soft and felt clean for the rest of the day like I'd just had a facial in a spa.  From the samples in this set, this is the only product I would buy full sized as I like how it makes my skin feel.
This has only been tried once or twice and it's not something I'll buy full sized.  The smell is very citrusy and fresh which is nice, if you don't like strong scented skin products then I don't think you'll enjoy any of this range as the scent is very strong for each of these products... not sure how their other skin products smell though so you're best off trying them in store.  I'll probably end up giving this to my mother as she loves serums and trying new skincare brands.

You get two little sachets of this product to try and when I first tried it I was shocked at how watery it was!  It came shooting out but luckily I caught the liquid in my palm ready to apply to my skin and found that half of the sample was enough to apply to my full face and neck area.  Once rubbed in, it dried instantly and felt like I had nothing on... I left it on overnight as recommended and woke up to a very soft, smooth feeling face.  I won't be rushing out to buy this product full-size anytime soon as it's not really essential for me but I think it would be perfect for those who have a dull complexion and those with more mature skin.
