The exfoliating gel is used first on slightly damp skin, massaged in and then washed away. This helps prepare the skin for the moisturising steps.
Step two is a moisturising treatment that you massage into your face. There’s a little leaflet inside with instructions on how to give yourself a sculpting facial massage while using the cream. This step was quite fun, although I did struggle a little to know how much pressure to use on my face (I went with firm, but stopping before any ‘ouch’).
Despite there being quite a lot of product in the small bottle, I was amazed at how much my face actually soaked up. It was clearly drier than I thought! I tissued off any excess before moving onto the mask.
The final step (and the one I was most looking forward to), is a hydrating foaming mask. This is where the shaker container comes in as you get a sachet of powder, add this to a small amount of water in the shaker, then shake for about 5 seconds. You then end up with what looks like raspberry mousse.

My skin was feeling so soft! Even the little lines around my mouth had plumped out visibly, which I thought was pretty impressive. I really loved using this treatment. It smelt like raspberries, so if you aren't keen on scented products it’s not for you, but the smell was definitely more ‘natural’ than some of the synthetic fruit-smelling products I've tried before.
The only downside for me is the price. One treatment retails for £22.50, which I think is too expensive given the fact it’s a single use product. If it contain enough for maybe 3 treatments, I would think this was fair, but at that price, I’d be tempted to just save up and go for a full facial instead. It’s a shame as other than that, I love it.
Have you tried anything from Docteur Renaud?
