"This balm is an ELLE team favourite. Infused with rose it is delicately scented and feels silky upon contact with the skin. Free from sulphates, parabens and synthetic fragrance, along with other nasties, this cleanser leaves skin feeling clean and comfortable. This will keep spots at bay for the pimple prone and will hydrate the driest of complexions. Simply emulsify to a milk consistency with warm water and rinse away, perfect if you want a balm but you’re not a fan of cloths and flannels. Not only that but this cleanser can be used as “replacement eye make-up remover” says the team at REN. Stocks are super low at the moment, it’s just that good, so make sure to snap one up fast". ELLE

"Our latest beauty crush is on REN’s new No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm. The luxurious rose-infused cleansing balm melts away dirt and make-up in one delicious sweep". NATURAL HEALTH

Customer reviews: Rosa Centifolia™ No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm

  • 4 starsMs Nemone Sariman, 17/03/2014 - Wonderful product, but not a fan of the packaging

    "The contents of this product work like a dream; you wouldn't think something so oily-feeling (not in a bad way) would remove make-up and then emulsify with water to wash off completely, but it works. No idea how, but it does! I have only ever known the tube packaging so can't compare with the jar, but I find it very difficult to squeeze and also to snap shut. I have nothing against tubes in general, but something about this tube just doesn't work; possibly the fact that the product is so thick that gravity doesn't naturally draw it downward, and it has to be manually worked down (with not that much success). I can't wait to try the jar that everyone is raving about!"

  • 5 starsAnonymous, 30/06/2013 -

    "Anxiously awaking The Return of the Tub. When, oh when can we expect it? Thank you."

    REN replied :

    We are pleased to announce that the tub is now available again! REN

  • 3 starsAnonymous, 19/05/2013 - Fabulous product awful packaging

    "Lovely product, great for leaving skin feeling clean and yet not tight. However, the new packaging is very annoying as a substantial amount of product remains in the tube and no matter how hard you try you just can't squeeze it out! The old tub style packaing was much more suitable. The price has gone up slighlty, if this is to pay for the cost of the new packaging what a waste."

    REN replied :

    We will soon be reintroducing the pot for the No.1 Purity Balm. I hope that this helps and we are sorry to hear that you do not like the current packaging. REN

  • 3 starsMrs Karen Mandelstam, 28/03/2013 -

    "I agree with all the comments, much prefer the jar as it was easy to get out every last bit of cleanser and it looks attractive in the bathroom. The new half size cloth is useless and went straight in the bin, luckily I kept my old full size cloths. In this age of austerity it's important to make your customers feel that they are getting good value for money with Ren."

  • 4 starsMiss Rachel Bryant, 01/02/2013 - Amazing Rose fragrance, great product!

    "I bought this as a cheaper alternative to Eve Lom cleanser, and i'm not has a lovely fragrance, and a good texture.I found the muslin cloth a little too small to work with and it did leave a slight film on the skin, however after toning and moisturising my skin felt great! I find getting the product out of the tube a hassle, after continual warming efforts to loosen up the contents eventually it came out and then I squeezed out too much product!The old style jar would be preferable to me. I've given 4 stars as the muslin cloth is way too small, the tube is not great, had this been in a jar with a larger cloth it would get 5 stars for sure!"

  • 3 starsAnonymous, 25/01/2013 - Please change the packaging (again)

    "Really dislike the current packaging and agree with all the others who want the pot/tub/jar back instead of the tube. I still love the product itself but am now knocking off 2 stars for the packaging. The pot was a massive and welcome improvement over the original packaging, so why you changed it again is a mystery to me. UX-wise it wasn't a very clever move - clearly (judging by the comments on here) it's made quite a few of your customers unhappy. From an environmental perspective the pot made sense too - I recycled the empty ones as containers for other things rather than just throwing them away."

    REN replied :

    We are sorry to hear you don't like the packaging. Our 150ml pot will be back this Summer.

    Hope this helps, REN

  • 5 starsMiss Shonya Singh, 02/01/2013 - The tube is Okay by me....

    "Okay, so I still love the product, and have no issue with the tube at all now. It's Summer and It is a total breeze to get out! In Winter I might just leave it in the bathroom Cabinet to keep it a bit warmer, rather than my room. Hanne- I wish using a spatula would answer my problem with tubs. Keeping my teenage sisters paws OUT of my products would truly solve my problem with tubs. She's incorrigible! Still keen on the tube however..."

  • 5 starsAnonymous, 07/12/2012 -

    "I never knew the jar, so i can't miss it. Absolutely love the product. As far as getting the product out is concerned, I always cut plastic tubes open with a pair of scissors, when there's almost nothing left. Works really well, no product lost."

  • 5 starsAnonymous, 03/12/2012 - Please bring back the Jar

    "I'm a French huge fan of Ren, and especially this Balm. I was fond of the Jar!And i've been very disappointed when I saw the tube when I repurchased!! I wrote a letter for Christmas and it only was "Bring back the jar for the REN Purity Balm"Please, REN : listen to your customers..."

  • 5 starsAnonymous, 03/12/2012 -

    "Please, please, please revert to 'The Tub""

  • 5 starsAnonymous, 03/12/2012 - Please bring back the jar

    "Echoing most of the other reviews, I'm really disappointed that the jar has been replaced, this was my favourite REN product and now I'm going to have to find another cleanser. Not only did I prefer the tub design but don't like feeling mugged off by an already pricey product being reduced in size but not in price... one unhappy customer who was about to stock up on 2 tubs as have just run out but will now shop elsewhere. If the tub comes back, please let me know and I will happily return to REN!"

  • 5 starsMs Hanne Soerensen, 18/11/2012 - Why change the package?

    "I am absolutely not a fan of tubes compared to tubs - too much product is left in the tube. Why has i been changed? Shonya - I use a small plastic "spoon" to keep my tubs hygienic."

  • 5 starsMiss latoyah innerarity, 08/11/2012 -

    "PLEASE change the packaging back to the tub as I hate the tube. I'm on the lookout for a replacement cleanser!"

  • 5 starsMiss Shonya Singh, 30/10/2012 - My new favourite product!

    "My first experience with this packaging is the tube, which I have just started using, and it is not the easiest to get out. Regardless I love this cleanser! It is the first cleanser that not only feels super clean, but leaves my skin smooth and super soft (+make-up removal)! No stripping feeling at all. I have gone through numerous high-end cleansers and this easily gets the best result. I like how the tube is more hygienic, I don't love the idea of dipping my hands in to a tub every day to clean my face (or my sister who constantly steals my products!). Annoying to get out, but that's a seriously MINOR issue, when compared to the excellence of the product. Although giving two options is probably not a bad idea..."

  • 2 starsAnonymous, 26/10/2012 - Please bring back the jar!

    "Same as all the other reviews, I was really disappointed with the new tube! Higher price and nowhere near as good! I love this product and was willing to pay the price, but will not be reordering the tube and am looking for a replacement cleanser. Please, please, please bring it back!"

  • 5 starsAnonymous, 21/10/2012 - No 1 Purity Cleansing Balm

    "I love this product and have been to two shops today trying to find it - neither knew about the repackaging which I've just discovered on this site. what a disappointment! Please bring back the tub which was expensive but tolerable given it is a great product and lasts ages. I hope you listen to your customers on this one - please let us know if the tubs will return."

  • 1 starsAnonymous, 08/10/2012 - Please bring back the 150ml jar

    "REN please listen to what your customers say and want - bring back the jar of 150ml (which was also of course 15% cheaper) otherwise risk losing our custom! Or how about offering real customer choice and give people the option of the jar and the tube?"

  • 2 starsAnonymous, 01/10/2012 - Please bring back the jar

    "The tube design is a poor choice for this excellent product, please bring the Jar back. It is obvious this change in packaging has been a poor and rushed decision to appease a few ill informed customers however I would suggest reverting back to the original design as it is clearly a far superior storage method for this balm. There is nothing wrong with holding your hands up."

  • 1 starsAnonymous, 27/09/2012 - Hate the packaging!

    "Love the product. Hate the packaging! The old jar was far better."

  • 5 starsAnonymous, 10/09/2012 - Sneaky price rise?

    "Also disappointed with the change in packaging, looks to me like it was an easy way of raising the price by 15%. I'd rather spend £34.50 on a 150ml tub of this balm and know I could get every bit out rather than faffing around with scissors to empty the last bit out of the tube. I've always used a cleansing balm rather than a lotion and switched from my original brand for this as soon as it launched because I wanted all my skincare to be REN. But I'll be going back to my original brand now so sadly you've lost a customer on this one."

  • 2 starsMiss Claire Reilly, 01/09/2012 -

    "I too am hugely disappointed with the change in packaging. I loved the jar but the tube is just too much bother and holds less. That's why I have given the low star rating. I absolutely love this cleansing balm, it's my favourite ever and I've tried a lot but I think I will now be looking for a new one. REN please listen to the customers who loved the jar and maybe offer two options for packaging!"

  • 5 starsAnonymous, 29/08/2012 -

    "Gutted! I was just about to reorder this product to find I didn't recognise it in its new format!! I really did like the jar concept to this product and are now very undecided to reorder as I can't tolerate these stupid tubes as squeezing is too difficult at the end :-( Please can REN state wether or not the jar will comeback or I may look elsewhere just when I thought I had found products for life!"

  • 5 starsAnonymous, 17/08/2012 - love the product, hate the new packaging

    "I really love this product, and my skins loves it too. But like others, I'm unhappy about the change in packaging. The tube wastes a lot of product you can't get out, and the downsizing is a sneaky price hike. Please bring back the old jar, at least as an option for those who ant it, or I will be looking for an alternative."

  • 5 starsAnonymous, 17/08/2012 - Great cleanser - new rip off price

    "Used to get 400ml - cost was around £38 New product 400ml = £92 I don't think so! REN seem to stop every product I like or change the format such as here - what a shame that I now have to shop elsewhere"

  • 5 starsMs Susanne Mertins, 03/08/2012 -

    "Bought this cleanser and really love the texture and smell BUT as soon as it comes into contact with my eyes they sting and starts watering. Not very good for a product that's supposed to remove eye make-up:(("

  • 3 starsMiss latoyah innerarity, 31/07/2012 -

    "Absolutely love the cleanser! but not happy about the change of packaging (as to get to the last bits I have to squeeeeze and squeeeeeze and roll it up like a tube of toothpaste, which is annoying) and the downsizing of the product from 150ml to 100ml. So instead of the product lasting me 2 months i now find i need to buy it monthly. By downsizing the product was this Ren's way of sneakily increasing the price? Not happy but the cleanser alone is worth a million stars."

  • 4 starsAnonymous, 28/05/2012 -

    "I really like this cleanser for removing my sunscreen and makeup at night. It smells great, it leaves my skin soft but with no oily residue and I feel it does clean my acne prone skin. The first 5 times I used this it was really difficult trying to get the product out of the tube but now it's easy. I like that there is no mineral oil in it and I'm quite sure I will repurchase this since my skin likes it so much."
