Elemis have had loads of new launches recently, and I’m not afraid to say that I want every single one of them. I received a very exciting package containing the super fancy Pro-Collagen Matrix duo, containing the iconic, Pro-Collagen Overnight Matrix alongside the newer launch, the Pro-Collagen Morning Matrix; if you’re starting to rethink your skincare for the colder months, this duo is here to help.
First up, let’s have a little reminder about the Pro-Collagen Overnight Matrix, which is a deeply nourishing night treatment designed to pretty much do it all; this buttery cream will plump, refine, hydrate and balance, and believe me when I say that you will see the difference after just one use. I have skin that can breakout very easily and this is a very rich product. However, even though it’s designed for nightly use (and if you can skin that can handle rich products then this is a match made in heaven) I tend to use it more like an overnight mask around once a week, particularly after an acid treatment or at-home facial.
The Elemis Pro-Collagen Overnight Matrix is currently available in three sizes – I love it when a brand does that as I feel like it really shows a faith in a product when you are able to buy a small version to try first – starting at £59 for 15ml, going up to £152 for a lovely, big 50ml tub. Find them all here – link.
Now on the the exciting newness that is the Elemis Pro-Collagen Morning Matrix, which offers all the joys of the original overnight cream in a daytime-friendly formula. As you can hopefully see in the texture images, this is a lighter, more-gel like consistency, that glides on the skin, leaving it feeling plump and nourished without any greasiness. It has a beautiful texture, yet doesn’t contain any silicones, so a big “thumbs up” from me as my skin really struggles with silicones!
The Pro-Collagen Morning Matrix plays really well with other skincare and also sits beautifully under makeup. I would also say that if you found the Overnight Matrix too rich, this could work really as a lighter alternative for both AM and PM usage. This is currently available in a 15ml tube for £49 and 50ml for £125, both of which can be found here – link.
