Quick Review: Elemis.
1. Elemis Nourishing Omega-Rich Cleansing Oil.
As you can tell from this picture and my empty bottle I absolutely love this cleansing oil! I massage a few drops into my face and it just seems to melt and breakdown my make up so quickly. After a few minutes you can either use a hot cloth or rinse with warm water and the oil turns into a milky cleanser that leave skin thoroughly clean and supple not a hint of tightness.
2. Elemis Balancing Lavender Toner.
Once my skin is squeaky clean I always use a toner, not always in the mornings but definitely at night-time just to remove any last traces of dirt and to balance out and purify my skin. A great tip is to decant the product into a mini pump spray bottle, you can pick a set of these up in Boots for a few pounds and then keep it in the fridge, spritz over face and wipe over with a cotton pad. This stops me wasting toner that soaks unnecessarily into pads.
2. Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream.
A recent Elemis facial introduced me to this product a few months ago and I can honestly say it is the best face cream i’ve ever used, I admit over the years I stuck to the No 7 range from Boots as they seemed to be the only products that didn’t breakout my sensitive skin but after giving the Pro-Collagen marine cream a good month-long trial I was more than impressed. Marketed as an anti aging cream it certainly adds a moisture boost to the skin and plumped it up in a rehydrating but not creamy, oily way. It sinks in right away which makes it ideal to apply make up over and my face feels fresh all day with no afternoon greasy T zone.
4. Elemis Pro-Collagen Advanced Eye Treatment.
I kind of sit on the fence when it comes to eye creams, in the past i’ve tried various creams and gels and am still yet to find one that does exactly what it says on the bottle. This anti-wrinkle eye serum from Elemis has a very fluid watery lightweight consistency and feels really cooling and fresh around my eyes when I use it. As some one with sensitive skin some creams i’ve tried make my under eyes so puffy and swollen and some of the gel tightening ones make my eyes so tight the delicate skin crinkled. I’m still in the process of trialling this product so I shall keep you updated as so far im only using it in the evenings.
5. Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Mask.
Now this does exactly what it promises to do! Its more of a thick cream mask rather than a peel off or setting clay based mask but it leaves my skin so soft and revitalised. I use this once or twice a week whilst in the bath as I think the warm steam opens up the pores so the ingredients can sink deep into my skin and work their magic. I apply a nice thick layer all over the face and relax for 10-15 minutes then use a wash cloth to wipe away before rinsing with warm water. It definitely smooths and firms my skin and has a luxurious feel about it.
