In Appreciation of: REOME’s Active Recovery Broth
It is with great pride that we announce the arrival of the elevated skin serum that delivers on both ritual and results to our coveted Hall of Fame
You’re not the only one feeling stressed. Your skin feels it too, manifesting in dullness, dryness, rough texture, deflated volume and a compromised skin barrier. But this honey-yellow nectar, or REOME’s Active Recovery Broth (£110 for 50ml) to give it its full title, might just be the antidote. It’s a potent, one-vial-does-all formula intended to remedy the effects of stress on skin – and help you rethink the ritual of skincare in the process.
The Rise to Fame
As the brainchild of Joanna Ellner, an award-winning beauty editor and acupuncturist, REOME exists neatly at the intersection where high-performing skin science meets self-connection. It’s a brand rooted in the belief that applying your skincare sinkside each morning and night should feel like a grounding ritual in its own right. One that feels like a sensorial pleasure, rather than a chore, and reminds you to go a little slower when you can. Better still, its joy comes at zero compromise to efficacy. Ellner has harvested her years of experience interviewing the world’s top skincare experts and learning about the industry’s biggest innovations to craft a formula that is potent, powerful and fundamentally, yields results.

Granted, the main goal of Active Recovery Broth is to calm and soothe sensitised skin, a task it fulfils with great aplomb. But it’s also brilliant at hydrating for the long-term, caring for the skin barrier and visibly reinstating lost glow and softness – none of which would be possible without its comprehensive yet concise ingredients list of efficacious actives. There are bio fermented probiotics, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid and panthenol but also snow fungus, a hydrating ingredient used widely throughout Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Better still, it has the clinical trial results to back it up. After four weeks, the formula was found to offer a 43% increase in hydration levels, 41% visible reduction in fine lines, 43% improvement to the skin barrier, 16% reduction in skin redness and 32% increase in skin radiance – data that comes from a four-week independent trial of 25 ethnically-diverse participants.
The Star Quality
The real joy of the formula – and this was a complete non-negotiable for Ellner – is that Active Recovery Broth takes away so much of the guesswork that shrouds the skincare realm right now. As she puts it, there’s no ‘cosplaying at being your own chemist’. Rather than leaving you to mix and match ingredients (and risk getting it wrong to the detriment of your skin health) this serum has been oh so carefully curated to deliver everything you could need in one squeeze of the pipette. Skincare made simpler and more enjoyable? REOME, we salute you.
