REN Clean Skincare set: Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask and Radiance Perfection Serum.

  I was in John Lewis the other day because i needed something to sort my skin out, it has been very dull and temperamental recently and i had decided on trying REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask. This is a little pricey at £30 for 50ml but i had read so many great reviews that i thought it would be worth it. Coincidentally i had also been wanting to get new muslin cloths for using with my No.7 Hot polish Cleanser. I has intended to get the Liz earl ones which are £4 for 2 cloths available here. BUT, then i saw this little package on the bottom shelf. 
It includes the REN Glycolactic Radience Renewal Mask 50ml, REN Radiance Perfection Serum sample 10ml and 2 REN Muslin Cloths. All for £30. 
Can i just add in here that i think its really good they give a decent sized sample, i despise it when you only get 3-5ml samples that you cant really get a feel of the product with.

The REN Muslin Cloths feel exactly like the Liz Earl ones and sell at 2 for £6 here.
The REN Radiance Perfecting Serum usually is in 30ml  jars and retails for £35, available from John  Lewis. So the 10ml is worth £11.66.

Altogether this is worth £47.66, so that's a saving of £17.66!!!! Very happy with this:D

I have been using the serum every morning and night under my moisturizer. I was skeptical at first that this would be too much for my very very oily skin but it doesn't make it more oily at all, in fact i think it is actually helping it a bit which is leading me to think my skin might be oily and dehydrated? Is that actually possible?. My skin feels softer i think as well and it smells great, kinda like oranges.

The Mask itself im still on the fence about, Im just not sure its strong enough for my tough as boots skin. I don't feel a tingle like it says you will and my skin doesn't look any different when i take it off. But ill persist with it anyway and see if it will just take a long time because i have read so many amazing reviews about it.

On the left is the serum and the right the mask. The serum is creamy but thin, which i really like as i hate things not sinking in to my skin quickly. You also only need about half a pump of it so i think even this small tub will last ages.  The mask is almost like a thin jelly and spreads thickly. It doesn't run down your face like some masks and it comes off easily, not clinging to your skin when trying to get it off. 

To be honest ive not got much to say about the cloths except they feel lovely and soft and work really well.

Did anyone else get this absolute bargain from John Lewis? 
Also can anyone recommend another similar mask product i could try?
