Elemis have a massive range of skincare and are well known for their Pro-Collagen moisturisers and their amazing TSV collaborations with QVC UK, but there are other products in the range that I don’t think get nearly as much love as they deserve, so I picked my three favourite Elemis skincare products which I’m sharing with you today:
The Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm gets a lot of love, and quite rightly so as it’s a gorgeous cleanser, but my favourite cleanser from the range is the Elemis Superfood AHA Glow Cleansing Butter (£30 for 90ml here – link) as it’s such a lovely product to use! It’s like a hybrid between a gel and a balm, so still wonderfully unctuous but without any greasiness. It moves around the skin with ease and works well with facial massage. If you love the idea of a balm but would prefer something less rich, this one is for you. It’s also very lightly exfoliating (chemically) so skin looks and feels smoother after use, but it isn’t harsh or aggressive at all – I love using it as a both a day and night cleanser and I’ll definitely replace my tub when finished.
Speaking of gentle exfoliators, the Elemis Pro-Collagen Tri-Acid Peel (£70 for 30ml here – link) is currently my all-time favourite acid mask as it’s so effective but so gentle! The first time I applied it I thought it was just too mild for me as there was no tingle or redness that I’m used to experiencing with acid-based masks, but after removal I couldn’t believe the difference it had made to my skin – basically all the benefits of a good acid mask without any irritation.
Finally, the Elemis Nourishing Omega Cleansing Oil (£32.50 for 195ml here – link) which is every bit as lovely as the name suggests. Whenever I wear make-up, I always use a cleansing oil to remove it as I find it’s so much more effective than anything else at cutting through mascara and heavy foundation, but I often struggle with cloudiness in my eyes from the oils, which can also sting too. This one is lovely and gentle, just the right consistency to get everything off but not so thick that it leaves a residue, so the Goldilocks of cleansing oils!
All three of these products are available in minis if you fancy trying them before committing to the full-size – just click on the links above.
