When Elemis launch a new collection they certainly do it in style. This Six piece day to night luminous collection contains some iconic favourites and an incredibly exciting new launch. With something in there for every skincare addict, this complete collection contains all you need for the perfect cleansing routine through to an exotic pampering experience.
|Elemis 6 Piece Day to Night Luminous Skin Collection|
The great thing about this collection is it can be split up into a skincare routine, that works incredibly well on skin seeing the signs of fine lines and wrinkles and then a pampering routine, for everyone! Below are the products included with my mini review :
Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm 105g –
|Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm|
I have written about this award winning Cleansing Balm many times and you will know that this is my go to cleanser most days and has been since it was launched. I love using it in the evening as I find it so relaxing and so much more than a cleanser. Rose and Mimosa waxes are infused with nourishing Elderberry and Starflower oils and supercharged with anti-ageing algae, Padina Pavonica. As soon as you open the pot, you know this is a luxurious product. It has a gorgeous Spa-Like scent, that relaxes the senses and makes cleansing the skin a really nurturing time.
I warm about a 10p size in my hands and gently massage it into my skin, my face, neck, and décolleté. It smells absolutely amazing and really hydrates and cleanses the skin deeply. I then add a little water and rub this over the balm, loosening it and turning it almost milky, then wet a flannel with warm water and gently wipe away. It literally removes every single trace of dirt, grime and make up and leaves my skin feeling beautifully soft, clean and plumped up. It is also wonderful layered on the face and just left to soak in as a mask. I do this when I am relaxing in a warm bath, as a pampering ritual and then gently wipe away any residue. Feels amazing. One of my absolute top cleansers ever.
Pro-Collagen Marine Cream 30g –
|Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream|
This is my cream, the cream I always go back to and use every day when I am not trialling any other skincare. This cream makes my skin sigh with happiness ( really) and is the perfect base for make up. Pro-Collagen Marine Cream has been clinically proven to reduce the depth of wrinkles, improve firmness, tone and hydration in 14 days! The texture is so light and cooling and really sinks quickly into the skin leaving no residue. I always used the original Pro-Collagen Marine Cream, however, when i recently went to the House of Elemis for a Facial, my therapist actually used the rich version on me and my skin drank it in. I have been using that ever since, even in this very warm weather and have noticed such a difference by stepping up a gear when i had no idea i needed too!
You only need a small, pea sized amount, gently warmed in the hands then just massage it upwards over the face, neck and décolleté. In the beginning I used slightly more as my skin was so dehydrated and I felt that I needed it, but with regular use, that really is enough to cover that whole area. I just do not feel it on my skin, it melts in immediately and keeps my skin deeply hydrated all day long. I would highly recommend this product if you are concerned about fine lines, wrinkles and hydration, it’s a no brainier. Suitable for all skin types.
NEW Peptide4 Night Recovery Cream-Oil 30ml –
|New Launch Elemis Peptide4 Night Recovery Cream-Oil|
This collection is worth it for this Brand New launch alone. This product is unlike anything else I have tried so far and the beauty press are all over it. I was so, so lucky to try this when I met up with the Elemis team back in May and firstly fell in love with the beautiful fragrance of Night Scented Stock. Using ingredient’s especially grown for Elemis this is one unique product. We all know how incredibly result driven peptides are. They work so deeply on the skin. The yeast derived Peptide included in the Peptide4 Night Recovery Cream-Oil is a strain of Peptide already found in the skin. The Peptides included, signal cells to produce more Collagen and repair themselves. They can fight against free radicals and help slow down the signs of ageing by plumping out lines and wrinkles whilst we are relaxed and sleeping. Plus, and this is what sold it to me, they can slow down the rate at which pigmentation is produced. Winner ! Winner! So apply this at night and a fantastic SPF during the day and you are doing yourself an amazing skin service.
|Elemis Peptide4 Night Recovery Cream Oil -Light, Silky Consistency|
Although this is a cream-oil there is no oily residue feel, it is like a light, silky lotion. One pump goes really far over the skin, but on days where I have been out in the sun I have been using two pumps and taking it down over my neck and décolleté. If you really feel you need it you can apply this over your oil of choice too, to really lock in all those ingredient’s. With 100% of people stating the product made them look like they had slept for eight hours and 99% of people saying they looked five years younger…. I’ll take it by the bucket load!.
Frangipani Monoi Bath & Shower Nectar 300ml –
|Elemis Frangipani Monoi Bath & Shower Nectar|
The signature scent of Elemis with it’s warm and sultry, exotic floral notes, is just a touch lighter in the Nectar and not as heady as the scent in lotions. I love that as i sometimes find the Frangipani Scent a little too overwhelming. Obviously everyone’s sense of smell is different, but I notice more of a sweetness of the white flowers in the Bath Nectar than I do in the oil and lotions, which makes it beautiful to layer. It is enveloping in its warmth and perfect for a relaxing bath or shower.
|Elemis Frangipani Bath & Shower Nectar|
It is exotic and sensual and everything a comforting scent should be, but when used in the summer it can take you away to exotic lands…i wish!! This leaves the skin incredibly hydrated and lightly fragranced. I am thrilled that Elemis have kept these Bath Nectar’s to the range they compliment the luxurious bath Elixirs (HERE) beautifully.
Frangipani Monoi Body Cream 100ml –
|Elemis Frangipani Monoi Body Cream|
After having a bath or shower in the above Nectar, there is nothing nicer than layering up with the decedent Frangipani Monoi Body Cream. After using the body cream the skin is left so silky smooth, soft and deeply hydrated. It can can really transform, dry, flaky Summer skin into supple soft, glowing skin. The only thing is you will not be able to stop smelling yourself. It’s divine. A slightly rich texture, it melts into the skin without leaving any sticky, greasy residue behind. I also love to smother my feet in Frangipani Body cream and put thick socks on. I have done this for years and my feet always look and feel so beautifully soft, plus my feet smell lovely the next day which is a bonus! Massage this across your body and you will be thrilled with the deep level of hydration this product offers. Your skin will look and feel beautiful.
Frangipani Monoi Body Oil 35ml –
|Elemis Frangipani Oil|
This travel sized bottle of Frangipani oil will come in handy for so many reasons. This oil is solid in the bottle so to loosen it, let the bottle sit in warm water for a while and it will become a liquid again.
This highly scented oil feels amazing massaged over damp skin after bathing to increase the skins hydration. The smell is intoxicating and the oil leaves everywhere feeling beautifully soft and smooth. Suitable for use on the body, feet and hands as part of a manicure and pedicure ritual and also on the ends of the hair to tame split ends and fly-away’s. This oil can be decanted into smaller round pots and left to go solid, this then makes it perfect to keep in your handbag or pockets and use on dry lips, cuticles and anywhere the skin needs extra hydration. Beautiful to use on summer skin of an evening to deeply nourish it and scent the skin before an evening out. A wonderful, multitasking oil.
Also included in this collection is a lovely white cosmetics bag, with blue trim and the Elemis logo embossed on the front. It has a very nautical vibe and i think is probably my favourite bag out of all the collections they have ever done. This incredible collection is available to purchase now from QvcUK at the amazing price of £59.96.
