From the very beginning, Renée recognized that every person's skin is unique; however, the beauty industry mostly relied on a one-size-fits-all approach to skin care. Product lines were traditionally catered to very generic categories of skin - dry, normal and oily. So Renée began formulating her own exclusive products based on nine skin types to ensure her clients achieved the results they desired. Celebrity users of the line include Sofia Vergara, Demi Lovato and Emmy Rossum.
