Wooo Hooooo I am so excited to talk to you about this collection! The first time I saw the Elemis BIOTEC Range was at Professional Beauty back in February. Everyone was so excited about this incredibly special, innovative, new launch from one of my favourite brands.
|Elemis Energising Skincare Collection TSV|
Fast forward a few months and completely living up to the hype BIOTEC launched with huge success and began changing many peoples skin for the better. BIOTEC is all about switching our skin back on, reawakening it and turbo charging it! Exciting eh? As we age, get busy, eat fast food or a culmination of all of the above, our skin cells diminish leaving some of use with dull, lacklustre skin. I know I am one of those people. I have to be on top of my skincare game all of the time, especially since turning 40. Stress, illness, tiredness can incredibly quickly turn my skin from glowing to greying within a few hours. BIOTEC contains a combination of encapsulated Copper, Zinc, Amber and other active ingredient’s to give our skin a proverbial kick up the behind and wake it up. BIOTEC is clinically proven to increase cell energy by 27% and this in turn will give us a more radiant, youthful looking complexion. But…does it work?
|Elemis BIOTEC Skin Energising Cleanser|
This Gel texture, wash off cleanser is supercharged with a trio of acids that are contained in an electrolyte solution. This means this gel gives a super deep clean. It cleverly picks up dirt, grease, grime, make up and impurities and you can really feel it almost vacuuming out the yuk! Hahaha. I apply about 3 Pumps of this product to my hand, add some water and lather. Now originally I tried it on a dry face, but now I wet my face first as I prefer the feel and the cleanse. It gives a great creamy lather and I can physically see all the dirt coming out of the skin as I am lathering it up.
Each and every time I then wipe it away with a wet flannel I am shocked at the amount of dirt that comes off! Even on days when I am only wearing my skincare and SPF, the grime just from day to day life, that comes out it amazing. After rinsing away with a wet flannel my skin immediately looks glowing, almost squeaky clean but without feeling dry and taught. It feels clean and moisturised and plump and lovely. The skin feels quite Matte – unlike after other cleansers due to the trio of acids included. Do not use it to take off eye make up as it does say rinse if in contact with eyes. Do not use a toner if you are following with the BIOTEC Day Cream as the skin will have been balanced due to the acids and ready for the Day cream. If you are using this with any other moisturiser or with the night cream then tone as normal .This cleanser can be used both morning and evening or can be used as a Boost cleanser for a few weeks at a time when your skin needs an energy boost.
|Elemis BIOTEC Skin Energising Day Cream|
This product smells absolutely gorgeous, but not in a floral or synthetic way. It is very warming, very unisex, due to the Amber, its beautiful and light and just sits in the background. Although this may look like some other products out there, this is a completely unique moisturiser with patent pending. Inside the bottle are two different “Tubes” of liquid, a gel and a cream and when you press the pump they both come out together.

They contain a cocktail of ingredient’s such as encapsulated Zinc, Copper and Matter Plankton ( SpongeBob!) which contains vital nutrients from the sea. Apply two pumps of this moisturiser to the skin-avoiding the eye area and experience the results as the ingredient’s burst and blend together to give the skin cells a real hit of energy. The Day Cream at first leaves a beautiful sheen to the skin, then dries down matte and makes a gorgeous base for make up if needed. My skin feels completely hydrated all day after use and looks absolutely radiant. I have read about this product and Elemis do recommend that if you have a sensitive skin you should try their new release version of this specific for Sensitive skin. However if you want to go for this outstanding value collection and you have sensitive skin then do a 24 hour patch test behind your ear and see how your skin feels.

|Elemis Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream|
Now I could seriously rave all day long about how much I adore, the Pro Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream
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 quickly into my skin leaving no residue or roll off. It does not stick to the pillow and is so cooling and feels fresh 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 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.
Cosmetics bag –
This whole collection comes in a lovely, deep, silver mini vanity case style bag, which easily fits all three products and more in and is very handy for travelling.
My thoughts on this collection – As many of you may know I take a lot of medication everyday, I also wear make up everyday. These two combined can cause havoc with my skin. For me this is dullness, dehydration and grey looking skin. I have also noticed over the summer that my skin has some texture on it and although i was exfoliating good and proper it still looked uneven and bumpy. Within days of using the BIOTEC collection, my skin looked smoother, radiant and clean, super super clean! This is serious skincare, but don’t be scared of this new technology as long as you follow the rules, do not apply toner if using the day cream ( Use the bliss capsules if needed) and use it regularly, you will see a fresh new skin! I am thrilled with this cleanser, it is my hero of this collection and has transformed my skin ready for the Autumn. If you have seriously dry, dehydrated or sensitive skin then patch test as this is a powerful collection which I personally would use in short, sharp bursts instead of everyday forever! I am also completely shocked and astounded at the price of the collection! If bought direct from Elemis ( Not including the bag) These three products would cost over £170.00! However this collection will be on QVCUK as a Todays Special Value on Sunday 4th September for 24 hours ( or whilst stocks last) for £56! However, you can order here on Friday 2nd September! That is incredible value and certainly worth stocking up for Christmas.
