Hands up if you are sick of the rain? I know i am, as i sit looking out of my office window across another gloomy day. Never fear though, because Elemis have brought out a smashing 6 piece head to toe overnight radiant skincare collection that will make you look and feel brighter than the current weather would suggest.
I have my sisters wedding in five weeks time and a lack of Spring sunshine plus an incredibly busy life schedule has really taken a toll on the radiance in my skin and accelerated the ageing process. This collection is a perfectly curated set of products, in my opinion, that will have all of us glowing, looking fresh, more awake and feeling wonderful. Containing three beautiful face products including an incredibly exciting skincare launch, three deeply decedent body products and a very handy bag to house them all in, this is one collection that will not be around for very long! Launching as an exclusive Todays Special Value (TSV) on QVCUK on Saturday 15th April but with an exciting Pre-sell from 10th April HERE, i would suggest you purchase sooner rather than later if previous collection sell outs are anything to go by. Included in this collection are the following:
Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser 200ml –
Perfect for all skin types due to its purifying nature, but especially wonderful on Normal/dry/dehydrated skins, this is a beautifully, luxurious, decendent cleanser that will shake up and wake up those skin cells in an instant! This creamy, treatment cleanser is very efficacious in its results. Containing nourishing ingredients such as Moringa, Ylang Ylang and Acai berry in a Shea butter and beeswax base, this has a non drying, almost moisturiser like consistency that is perfect to apply to dry skin and take all over the face, including the eyes, neck and décolleté to remove makeup and dirt. Scientifically formulated with peptides and antioxidants, this cleanser also protects the skin from pollutants, whilst effectively cleansing and hydrating at the same time. For me, this is a powerhouse cleanser that is like a superweapon against tired, stressed out skin that is making me look haggard and older than i am. I also love to use this as a mask on days i have been travelling lots by leaving it on the skin for a few minutes before wiping and rinsing off. Immediately the skin looks brighter, nourished and like i have been drinking lots of water. Can be used both morning and evening and is fab as a first cleanse with Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm used after. Read more HERE
Total Glow Bronzing Moisturiser 50ml –
This is the perfect product to kick start your “Summer Glow”. If you are someone that loves how you skin looks when it has just been kissed with a hit of summer sun then this is for you. If you are someone that finds you are reaching for more and more make up products to even out your skin tone due to any redness or discolouration in your skin, then this is also for you. If you have skin this is you for! Suitable for all skin types and tones, the total glow bronzing moisturiser has a very special way of making our skin look flawless, even and healthy. With a very fresh yet aromatherapic scent that is not at all cloying, this really is a pleasure to apply to the skin every morning, or on alternate mornings depending on the results you wish to achieve.
As you can see from my photo above where i have made a circle out of one application, this is NOT a ‘fake’ tan, it does not make you look orange, but it does gradually enhance your skins complexion making it look beautifully radiant and sun kissed whilst also doing its real job of hydrating the skin. Containing those all important antioxidant ingredients such as Green Tea and Ginger Water, this light, thin, silky moisturiser is perfect for everyday use ( or every other day) alongside or in conjunction with your usual Pro-Collagen Marine Cream. A real summer must have.
NEW Pro-Collagen Overnight Matrix 30ml –
Drum roll please…….this is the incredible new launch from Elemis that will make you wonder how you ever lived without it – really! This is stress relief in a jar as far as i am concerned. This is your hangover skin remedy (don’t ask hahaha), your life-is-just-to-busy remedy, the product that you would reach for if your skin is making you look older than you actually are. A huge claim i know but it really needs to be tried to be believed. If you are a regular reader you will know that i adore my Oxygenating night cream for plumping out my fine lines and wrinkles after a busy day and breathing life into my tired skin. This is different. Pro-collagen overnight matrix has the power, thanks to ‘Smart drone technology’ to actively target specific areas of the skin where stress shows more. How clever is that? Using encapsulated peptides, and harnessing the powers of Padina Pavonica and Micro-algae this new technology is able to almost scan the skin and deliver more product, more love and care to specific areas and really target those skin concerns. So whether that be lines and wrinkles that have appeared through stress, lifestyle, poor diet, being overworked, whatever the reason may be, this product aims to penetrate into the skins surface to make the skin appear less creased in the mornings, more rested, hydrated and relaxed looking.
With an almost whipped, mouse like texture and the glorious scent of Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm, this is really something special.

Beautiful new launch.
Frangipani Monoi Bath & Shower Nectar 300ml –
When Elemis added bath & shower nectars to their range back in 2016 i think it was, i know how many of us were absolutely thrilled. The signature scent of Elemis with its warm and sultry, exotic floral notes, is lighter in scent in the nectar and not as heady as the scent in lotions. Sometimes I find the Frangipani scent a little to overwhelming, as I am a ‘fresh scent’ girl, and was worried how it would come across in the nectar – but is beautiful. Obviously everyone’s sense of smell is different, but I notice more of a sweetness of the white flowers in the bath & shower nectar than I do in the oil and lotions. Having recently been pampered with a beautiful Frangipani Spa experience at The House of Elemis which you can read about HERE, this scent now really relaxes me and puts me in a wonderful mood. It is enveloping in its warmth and perfect for an evening bath as well as a relaxing shower before bed. It is exotic and sensual and everything a comforting, warming intoxicating scent should be. The foaming lather creates the most beautifully airy bubbles that gently cleanse the skin whilst leaving it feeling incredibly hydrated and lightly fragranced. Perfect when poured under running water to create a foaming bath or used in the shower.
NEW Frangipani Monoi Body Polish 150ml –
If you love the idea of a body exfoliater, and we really should all be sloughing away those tried, dead skin cells that make our skin look grey and unable to accept any product, but you dislike harsh exfoliants, this would be for you. A chemical and mechanical exfoliator this contains beautiful Hibiscous flower with contains AHA’s (chemical exfoliator) and fine, delicate Pink Sand from Tikehau with lies just north of Tahiti (mechanical exfoliator) which really gently and successfully removes dead skin cells. This body polish envelops the skin in a beautiful heady scent of Frangipani, which just helps with your wellbeing and envelopes the senses whilst layering the skin with beautiful oils and salts. This is such a wonderful product to use in the shower that not only makes the skin feel and look great, but really purifies and nurtures the skin and uplifts the mind. All that from a body polish? Yep!!
Frangipani Monoi Body Balm 120ml –
Blended with Rosehip Oil and Tahitian Monoi Oil this body balm is perfect when applied over your body after a lovely warm bath or shower. Apply to slightly damp skin and notice how the butter immediately sinks in. Thick in texture yet lovely and fast to apply, it absorbs quickly into the skin leaving the most delicious scent and hydrated feeling with a hint of a sheen. Frangipani is that intoxicating scent that takes me off to holidays in tropical places. I apply mine just before bed, after bathing or showering and love to drift off to sleep feeling incredibly relaxed, soft and smooth.
My thoughts on this collection – With out a shadow of a doubt this is an incredible collection. Containing six outstanding skincare and body products that can easily be split into gifts if you can bare to part with them, this collection is sure to make you feel rested and relaxed whilst making your skin appear more smoother, radiant, younger looking and less stressed. As a very busy working mum, i can sometimes feel a little consumed and overwhelmed with stress and really need that time at the end of my day to just relax into my skincare and take time out for me. This collection is perfect for that. It does also come with a lovely tote bag which i will be taking to my sisters wedding in sunny Newquay in five weeks time, looking and feeling fresh and rested.
