ReNew Cream with Renovage


Available Options


Product Information

Garden of Wisdom's ReNew Cream does exactly renews and rejuvenates skin, heals skin and nourishes it from a cellular level. Since this has a cumulative effect I would suggest using it for 4 weeks and then take a week off for the skin to crave this again. This is trial and error as most companies, we believe, would suggest no break at all.  :-)

Method of Application

Apply a pea sized to a dime sized amount, depending on what your skin needs, after the water soluble phase of your routine. This should be the final phase of layering in your skin care routine, as it will help to hold moisture and nutrients in the skin.

Forum Reviews

My jar of ReNew Cream ... arrived the other day and I have now used it for two -- count 'em, two -- consecutive nights. I feel like I must be hallucinating, but I swear my skin looks better already. Maybe it's an indication of how bad it was looking before :), but this stuff is blowing my mind, Markey.

It was after I started ... with the Renew that all of the other products started soaking into my face really fast.  Before it would all just sit there for a while.  So Renew is my daytime cream, and I never thought I would use a cream during the day.

 "at night, I put Renew ... on a clean face One of the things I love about Renew is waking up every morning with nicer skin."

The ReNew Cream ... feels silky going on, and sinks in immediately, leaving soft, supple skin. I've been using it pretty randomly, sometimes after all the serums/hydro/oils steps, sometimes on bare nekkid skin, sometimes with only hydrosol under it. I've been busy, stressed and sick, so my "regimen" has really consistently only had the ReNew in it, when I've had time to do anything at all.

DANG!!! My skin looks good! Wha' happened? The ReNew Cream happened! Honestly, I should look terrible, all things considered, but my skin looks REALLY NICE! And that's why I ordered a full size ReNew today.

Shelf Life and Storage Information for Products and Ingredients

Finished products generally don't need to be refrigerated as they are preserved, but you can refrigerate them to extend shelf life. Shelf life is 9 - 12 months

Sample sizes do have a shorter shelf life (generally 3-6 months and items in jars can dry up quicker than this if the lid is not tightened well enough (except our vitamin C serums - use within 90 days).

Please try to keep out of high humidity or heat if possible! Store out of direct light and in dark cabinet if possible also!

Exfoliating Acid products will last 1 year.

The only thing we don't suggest refrigerating is the mandelic or salicylic acid serums as those can crystallize in the refrigerator and not go back to their normal state even if you warm them up.

Additional Items Requiring Refrigeration

Hydrosols - Take out 1/2 oz to 1 oz in a separate spray bottle from your original container and keep the larger bottle in the refrigerator!

Carrier Oils - Generally you can refrigerate ALL carrier oils, they will solidify in some cases. This is FINE all you have to do is take it out warm it up at room temp and it will be liquid again!
There are some oils that have a super long shelf life like coconut oil for instance! That does not need to be refrigerated, but it cannot hurt it either!

Essential Oils - Essential oils are best stored in a cool dark place.

Co2 Oils - These should always be refrigerated.
