If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll know how much I love Kri Skincare and their amazing range of natural, organic and vegan friendly skincare delights.

I always get incredibly excited when the brand launch a new product and the recent addition to the Kri Skincare family certainly hasn’t disappointed. Renew Brightening Serum* is a water-based serum formulated with natural fruit acids to gently exfoliate the skin while you sleep, leaving you with a smoother and more glowing complexion when you wake.


Renew has a texture much like the other serums within Kri Skincare’s range, with a rich, thick consistency that is incredibly lightweight, slightly sticky on contact with the skin (thanks to hyaluronic acid) yet is highly absorbent and leaves behind no residue after use. The scent is incredibly subtle, with the fresh, orange blossom flower water treating the skin and the senses to a very delicate, floral aroma which dissipates within a couple of minutes after application.


I’ve been using Renew in my bedtime routine for around a month now, applying it twice a week in place of Illume Serum, and so far first impressions have been incredible. When i’ve used products containing AHA’s and PHA’s in the past, it takes my skin a while to adjust but thanks to Kri Skincare’s 15% blend of lactic and gylcolic acid (AHA) and polyhydroxy acid (PHA), I haven’t experienced any irritation or redness. The addition of hyaluronic acid and glycerin has also stopped my skin from drying out, leaving it intensely hydrated and instantly softer almost immediately after use.


Even though I have only been using Renew Brightening Serum for a short period of time, I have certainly noticed a difference in my skin when I wake after using it in my evening routine. My skin is less flaky, much smoother to the touch and looks plumper and full of life. As someone who suffers from a dry and dehydrated skin type, Renew has been a skincare saviour as I don’t always have to time to fully exfoliate my skin with a physical exfoliator like a scrub or facial polish, so this integrates into my routine seamlessly yet still provides amazing results.


If you’re looking for a product that will brighten your skincare routine and give you the smoother and softer complexion you’ve always dreamed of then Kri Skincare’s Renew Brightening Serum is the product for you. I have to say that after my incredible experience so far, I cannot wait to see how Renew performs on a long term basis as first impressions have certainly blown me away.
