When I first received this beautiful 5 piece Cleanse, Define and Contour collection from Elemis I had all sorts of reactions!
First was “Oh Wow” then “Oh no!” followed by “Phew” haha and here is why. I am an Elemis Junkie, you have heard me say it time and time again, and although I love many, many other brands, and dip in and out, depending on what my skin needs, I always go back to Elemis. I have been loyal to the brand since the very beginning, because of this I am so excited to share with you the brand new product launch in this collection. My extreme reactions were “Oh Wow” because this collection is so beautiful and contains everything we need for a full regime. My “Oh no” reaction was because I am soooo ridiculously addicted to the Pro Intense range I was wondering if I could be swayed…but then “Phew!” as I realised that the Pro Intense range has been renamed Pro definition so they are the same beloved products just in new packaging! Yay! So before you all think I am crazy, best I explain what is included in this amazing value collection and who it is for.

Elemis Nourishing Omega-Rich Cleansing Oil 195ml – This really does deserve a drum roll, a fanfare and a crown hahaha. Regular readers of my blog know that my favourite cleanser ever is Elemis pro collagen cleansing Balm, followed by my love of Micellar water and Micellar Oils. So as soon as I knew Elemis were releasing this Nourishing Cleansing Oil, I was all over it. Brand spanking new from Elemis this Omega rich oil is blended with over 90% natural oils and has been formulated to ensure it maintains the skins delicate ph 4.5-5.5.

You will find with this oil that a little really does go a long way. I use about three drops for my face and neck and gently massage it onto dry skin. I do not take this over my eyes ( I prefer an eye make up remover ) but you absolutely can. After massaging in I then add a little water to my face and this turns the oil into a milky lather. I then gently rub that in and rinse away. Straight away my skin feels beautifully hydrated, clean and smooth. This is great for all skin types and has a beautiful, delicate Citrus smell. I really recommend this oil as it is super fast for removing impurities, great to use when double cleansing (see more HERE) and really soothes and softens the skin. Comes in a handy, lockable pump bottle.

Pro-Definition Eye and Lip Contour Cream 15ml – Funnily enough I was speaking to a couple of ladies the other day about this product and the Intense serum. I was talking about my wrinkles and lip lines, to which they replied. “You don’t have any?” Exactly, not any more! I have been using this Eye and Lip Contour for about a year and adore it. I was a smoker for a few years but gave up over 17 years ago, that coupled with how I sleep at night with my chipmunk cheeks all squashed, resulted in me having vertical lines above my lip. As I am 41 I knew that I would need to act fast and that they could be smoothed out. This product has really helped me achieve this. Containing plant stem cells which are highly concentrated, our skin is able to replenish and plump up upon application of this product. Over time fine lines around the delicate lip and eye area are filled and appear more defined. Mafane flower smoothes the skin, Edelweiss is great at firming the skin and Alaria Esculenta ( an algae) contains essential fatty acids.

The best way to use this product is to apply one pump to each ring finger and gently pat around the eye contour and fine lines, and around the lips and also the nose to mouth lines! Any left over product i apply to the Harry Potter line between my brows. Great to use both morning and evening after cleansing. It is non sticky, feels nourishing yet not heavy on the skin and sinks in lovely.

Pro-Collagen Neck & Decolette Balm 15ml – This is a new product for me and one I was really looking forward to trying. It really is important to look after our neck and decollete and not to just use our face moisturiser in that area as this really is delicate skin. Signs of ageing and sun damage appear here and can really trip us up. This Neck and Dec Balm contains Sea BuckThorn oil, which is a really rich plant source of fatty acids and also the Meditteraniean Algea Padina Pavonica which hydrates, nourishes and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Apply on clean, dry skin in an upward motion to help with contouring this area. I take this all the way up and under my jaw area too. The slip on this is beautiful, so it really is easy to apply.

Although it is called a Balm it has a texture that feels a cross between a balm and a lotion as it is springy and very light. The smell is uplifting whilst being comforting at the same time. I have not used this long enough yet to see any huge results (28 days is recommended) but my neck is thoroughly hydrated and smooth and feels lovely.

Pro-Definition Day Cream 30ml – This is a wonderful cream for lifting and firming slackened skin. Regardless of whether the slackening be due to ageing, weightloss, hormonal changes or illness, this is a lovely, luxurious feeling product with amazing benefits. Containing the power of plant cells and Arjuna Bark, Lupin, and Starflower Oil to lift, firm, noursh and hydrate the skin, this is a powerful day cream that is suitable for all skin types and everyday use. This cream feels so cooling to the touch and has a light floral, almost citrus scent that is not overpowering at all.

I use a small amount and warm it gently between my fingers and massage it all over my face in an upwards motion. As I am concerned with slackening around the jowel and cheek area, I pay particular attention here when massaging the day cream in. It feels very light on the skin so you will not feel overloaded. It sinks in very quickly and dries down beautifully allowing me to apply my make up pretty soon after. I adore this day cream and love how hydrated it leaves my skin feeling all day long.

Pro-Definition Night Cream 30ml – Working in perfect harmony with the day cream, this night cream lifts and sculpts the skin whilst we are sleeping. As you know the skin works really hard whilst we are resting, to replenish and repair. Containing one of my favourite flowers, Gardenia, which increases cellular regeneration, Lupin and Arjuna Bark this cream contains everything to lift and firm saggy, slackened skin. Use after cleansing by warming a pea sized amount between your fingers and gently massage over the face. I massage upwards and really lift the saggy (yuk) parts of my face whilst doing it. Ever so Slightly thicker than the day cream, it is cooling on the skin and again sinks in very fast leaving no sticky residue on your pillow. An absolute pleasure to use.

As an addition to this collection you also receive a gorgeous Rose Gold coloured bag. The bag is big enough to hold all of the products and then some! It is embossed with the Elemis logo on the front, has a zip compartment inside and a pop stud closure. This will make a pretty toiletry or make up bag.

To summarise, this collection is really suitable for everyone as it doesn’t really focus on age persay. Yes it has Anti ageing benefits in that it is perfect for fighting those fine lines and wrinkles however, If you want a more contoured, structured look to your skin then this could be an ideal regime to use. If you suffer from slackening skin, hormonal skin, lack lustre skin, menopausal skin, sun damaged skin, then I think this is a beautiful collection to use, plus it looks gorgeous on the dressing table!!
