Tru Renewal comes from Ramona Singer, those who love Bravo’s “The Real Housewives” would be familiar with her as she is indeed, one of the housewives. Ramona first awakened her entrepreneurial spirit selling jewelry but decided to start her own skin care company because she couldn’t find a decent skin care company herself. Some may say she just wanted a profitable business and is using that as an excuse. After working with a chemist in New York, she managed to create a line of skin care products and credits green algae for being beneficial. Singer says, “After using the products for just 6 weeks, all of my friends noticed a difference in my appearance. My skin looks and feels healthier; it really is more vibrant and glowing!”

The Good:

Tru Renewal focuses in on green algae. According to Singer, “Green algae contains natural sources of vitamin C and provides valuable antioxidants. It builds collagen and reduces the look of wrinkles to give you an overall radiant and more youthful appearance.” The good news is that this is an antiaging company that doesn’t use parabens, synthetics, or chemicals.

The Bad:

There are only four products being featured right now. A cleanser, anti-oxidant booster, eye repair, and a general repair repair- which can be bought together for $195. A small offering, and since the brand is so small, there isn’t much feedback on it just yet.

The Truth:

In some ways, Tru Renewal seems like another version of Your Best Face. The products' packaging look the same and kind of perform the same functions, not a bad thing. But unlike YBF which has a bunch of products for different needs, Tru Renewal pigeon holes you into their four offerings, which could be a good thing if you hate decisions. The ingredients aren’t bad and it seems like Ramona Singer jumped on the good-for-you skincare bandwagon which is a growing industry. Unfortunately, Ramona Singer wasn’t the most well liked character on The Real House Wives and after looking up Tru Renewal, it seems like people won’t even touch the stuff because it is made by Ramona. Rumors run wild about Ramona Singer having botox injections, cellulite reduction, and neck tightening via lasers. This reputation makes people stray from her products and look for better brands. If you don’t mind Singers reputation, Tru Renewal may be a good product line to look into.
