Empties: Miniature Edition

Empties Miniature Edition

End of the month again, so time to have a look at the products I finished this month. It is a bit of a special edition, as each of these products is a tester. I had so many of these lying around and decided to work my way through them and collect them all in a single post. Obviously, you can’t really test a skincare product properly from a small sample, so I will just be giving you my first impressions on these.

Catching Up with Doves&Roses #2

Catching Up with Doves and Roses

Time to catch up with what has been happening on Doves&Roses recently! I have collected my favorite posts and products featured on the blog in the last month. Before we have a look, I might have been a little absent in the comments and on social media lately. That is because I had a major graduate school deadline coming up: I have just handed in the first draft of my dissertation. No worries, I will be getting back on track during the Christmas holiday both with the blog and my personal life 😉 Let’s have a look at my four favorite posts from the last month

First Impressions: Clean Hair Care by Ren

Ren Oat and Bay Shampoo and Pro-Vitamin Conditioner

I am just such a fan of travel sized products. They don’t just look extremely cute, but they also allow you to test products before committing to the full size. A couple of months ago I bought the Grab and Go Kit by Ren Clean Skincare containing eight cute miniature products and today I want to start of by sharing my first impressions of the hair care products: the Oat and Bay Conditioning Shampoo and the Pro-Vitamin Conditioner.

Easy Skincare: Ren Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial

There is nothing quite as relaxing as a little pamper session with a face mask, nice magazine and a lovely cup of tea (or perhaps a glass of champagne if you are feeling decadent). As much as I would love to do this every week, I honestly can’t always find the time or energy but my skin looks a lot better with regular face mask. I have recently found the perfect solution for this: the Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial.

Ren Skincare Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial Treatment Mask

This facial by Ren Skincare contains vitamin C but no nasty ingredients like Parabens, silicones, or mineral oil. It is very easy to use: massage the product into your skin, dampen your fingertips and massage again. The application of water activates the vitamin C. Leave for a minute and rinse thoroughly.

This simple treatment facial has a refreshing citrus smell and gives your skin a great little boost. It isn’t a complete replacement of a face mask, think of it more like a quick fix if your skin if looking a bit dull. It also works wonders used in the morning after your cleanse if you have a big day and want that extra bit of energy.

This Ren treatment came in my Radiant Skin Beauty Box and it is my favorite product from the box that absolutely delivers on radiant skin. It is one of those convenient skincare products that saved my skin in all the chaos of my recent move and I can see it getting a lot of use now autumn weather is approaching.


Er is niks zo onspannend als een kleine verwensessie met een gezichtsmasker, leuk tijdschrift, en een lekker kopje thee (of misschien wel een glas champagne als je behoefte hebt aan wat luxe). Ik zou het graag elke week doen, maar ik eerlijk gezegd kan ik zelden de tijd of energie vinden, terwijl mijn huid er toch echt beter uitziet met regelmatige maskers. Ik heb daar echt de perfecte oplossing voor: de Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial.

Dit gezichtsmasker van Ren Skincare bevat vitamine C maar geen vervelende ingrediënten zoals parabenen, siliconen, of minerale oliën. Het is heel makkelijk in gebruik: masseer het product over de huid, maak je vingertoppen nat en masseer nogmaals. Het toevoegen van water activeert de vitamine C. Laat een minuutje zitten en spoel goed af.

Deze simpele behandeling heeft een verfrissende citrusgeur en geeft je huid een kleine boost. Het is geen complete vervanging van een grondig gezichtsmasker, zie het meer als een snelle oplossing voor een doffe huid. Het werkt ook erg goed in de ochtend na je reiniging als je er extra stralend uit wilt zien op een belangrijke dag.

Dit Ren masker zat in mijn Radiant Skin Beauty Box en het is mijn favoriete product uit de doos dat zorgt voor een stralende huid. Het is een van die handige producten die mijn huid gered hebben in de chaos rond mijn recente verhuizing en ik denk dat deze de komende tijd ook veel gebruikt gaat worden nu het herfstweer er aan komt.
