I remember the first time I used an Elemis product over 20 years ago now, I had changed from a much loved French Brand over to Elemis, purely because I was curious….. and so started my love affair with this Amazing English brand.
Elemis is the leading luxury British spa and skincare brand and for me I think it is the successful combination of natural active ingredients with cutting-edge technology which has kept my love affair with it going. Yes of course I use and enjoy other brands, but I always come back to, or slot in Elemis somewhere on a daily basis. It is a wonderful brand with products suitable for both men and women.
I think that long ago many people would consider This kind of skincare as a “Luxury” but in today’s society, busy lives, stressful situations, ill health, changes in diet and the knowledge that we have about skincare now, I believe that everyone deserves to have the best skin that they can. By using a few key products, even slotted into an existing routine, there is no reason why this cannot happen.
My skin has gone through many changes, from fast paced City Life, train travels, Long hours, clubbing, drinking, smoking ( which I sensibly stopped 17 years ago)…to pregnancy, childbirth, hormone changes caused by illness, dehydration caused by medication, the weather, pollution, you name it I’ve been there and done it. But Elemis has been there through it all.
I truly believe that our eyes are the windows to our and soul and I really do try to look after mine. I have quite a few different eye creams that I use and enjoy but for a full on treatment burst of goodness I turn to Elemis Pro-collagen Advanced Eye Treatment every time. This pot of beauty has a fab pippet applicator that is very easy and hygienic to use! I pour one drop from the pippet onto my fingers and gently tap all around my orbital bone and over my eyelids, under the eyes and the outer corners. This is amazing for fine lines and wrinkles and also dehydrated eyes, it feels beautiful and cooling on the skin. It has a lovely, delicate marine smell which I am assuming is from the..Padina Pavonica. The great news about this product as an added bonus is it can also be used around the fine lines of the lips and I have had great results from this. I am a side sleeper and this causes vertical lip lines so using this product has really helped.
Pro-Collagen Marine Cream is the award winning anti-ageing moisturiser from Elemis. When used in conjunction with their pro-collagen night cream where possible, you really have a winning combination for beautiful skin. Containing the amazing ingredient Mediterranean algae, Padina Pavonica and blended with precious Rose and Mimosa Absolutes this lightweight, cooling moisturiser packs a powerful punch against lines and wrinkles. Easy to apply I could clearly see a change in my skin the first time I used it..my fine lines appeared less pronounced and my skin just appeared to look more youthful and healthier which, considering how tired I always am and how much medication I take, this is always gratefully received. It has the most beautiful lightweight, almost whipped texture and is so easily absorbed into the skin.
Now I could seriously rave all day long about how much I adore, the Pro-collagen Oxygenating Night cream but basically I will just tell you about the results that I have seen and urge you to try it for yourself!
Firstly I love the smell of this product, it is so beautiful and spa like that I have to stop my self from smothering my whole body in it!! This night cream glides on like an absolute dream and sinks beautifully into my skin leaving no residue or roll off. It does not stick to the pillow and is so cooling and feels lovely and light on the skin. It works by replenishing oxygen in the skin, improves elasticity and targets premature signs of ageing. When I wake up my skin has a beautiful sheen, is soft, plump and beautifully hydrated. I love that whilst I am sleeping and relaxing, my skin and night cream have been working hard together to make me wake up looking rested and fabulous! This night cream is great for all skin types.
