Sponsored feature in association with Elemis
“Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas….everywhere you go…..” I am so excited for this time of year, I love giving gifts to friends and loved ones especially when they are as luxurious as the Elemis Pro-Collagen Day to Night Skincare Gift.
Every year I look forward to sharing with you the Christmas QVC TSV from Elemis, the value, as always is outstanding and they make the most wonderfully decedent and luxurious gifts for your self or a loved one. This year there are two beautiful collections to choose from with something for everyone. Each collection focuses on nurturing, feeding and nourishing the skin at this cold time of year, instead of neglecting it under layers of warm clothes. Containing a generous selection of award winners, new favourites and a NEW GLOBAL LAUNCH aromatic, you are in for a real treat when you open this box of delights.
This years collection is soooo generous that I am shocked at the amount of product they have managed to fit inside the box! Not only is the product outstanding value for money, but it’s the gift that keeps on giving offering some wonderfully relaxing “Me Time” and pampering to boot. This year you have a choice of aromatic fragrances to choose from between the sensual and heady Frangipani collection and the warming, neck nuzzling Global Launch of Warm Tonka & Vanilla. It is so hard to choose a fragrance but I will do my very best to describe them for you. Each box contains the same items but in different aromatics and a matching gift box.
The Red Box : Frangipani Monoi
Cleansing Micellar Water 400ml –
Launched back in 2016, this supersize fragrance free water has fast become a favourite. Thinking amount the amazing skin benefits of double cleansing – removing all of your make up, dirt and grime in the first cleanse, then switching to a more “Treatment” based cleanser that will nourish, feed and hydrate your skin whilst deeply cleansing it, Micellar Water is perfect for the first step.
If you are someone that does not cope with the feel of normal water on your face or you have sensitive skin then this is ideal. Containing natural surfactants derived from Apple amino acids, Rosehip Seed Oil and Indian Soapnut, it gently lifts impurities from the skin, even sensitive skin. Organic English Rose water and Chamomile gently cleanse and soothe the skin and keep it feeling really hydrated.
I use this in a few ways: Of a morning, if I am in a hurry, I soak a cotton pad and quickly swipe this all over my face to remove any traces of skincare from the night before. If I have made any make up mistakes I spray a little onto a cotton bud and use it to wipe away mistakes without ruining the rest of my make up. Of an evening I like to soak two cotton pads and place them on my eyes for a few seconds then ever so gently wipe away all of my mascara, including long lasting mascara. This feels beautiful and cool on the skin leaving it feeling really fresh afterwards. Great to keep by your bedside so you NEVER fall asleep with make up on!!
Pro-Collagen Marine Cream 30ml –
This award winning cream has been clinically proven to reduce the depth of wrinkles and improve hydration and firmness in the skin in fourteen days! If you have often wondered why there is so much hype around this product, its because it works. I have had a love affair with Pro-Collagen Marine Cream for years and years and years and I never get bored of seeing the constant improvement, hydration and glow that it brings to my skin. The incredibly lightweight, almost gel like texture is beautifully cooling when applied and immediately gets to work at plumping and hydrating mature skin types. Perfect for all skins, whether they be dry, dehydrated, combination or oily due to the magical blend of the Mediterranean algae Padina Pavonica, Ginko Biloba, Mimosa and Rose absolute, it adds hydration but not oiliness. It nourishes and feeds the skin all day long without creating any shine, and makes a wonderful base for make up.
Pro-Collagen Marine Cream has been clinically proven to significantly reduce fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin hydration.
90% of women agreed that the product left skin feeling significantly firmer
83% of women agreed that the product dramatically reduced the appearance of deep set lines
80% of women agreed that the product dramatically reduced the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Pro-Collagen Marine Cream smells divine with a really light, spa like scent and is a dream to use. I urge you to give this a try and see the change within your skin, because I truly think you will be amazed. You only need a small amount to massage gently over the face, neck and décolleté to lift and feed your skin. Can be used morning and evening and taken around the eye area.
Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream 15ml –
Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream is what I like to call my comfort blanket, my safety net. This is a product that I know has my back when I have been unwell, exhausted or mentally and physically drained and my skin is playing up and looks grey and dull. The benefits of using this product, to me, have been absolutely outstanding. My skin just relaxes and drinks it in. Perfect for anyone seeing those signs of ageing, or lack lustre skin that has lost its glow. Oxygenating Night Cream is clinically proven to help with your skins natural regeneration process, ensuring you wake up with brighter, smoother skin. If you find that you are waking up with skin that has been depleted by the cold weather or other stress factors, this gently massages into the skin and wakes everything up as we sleep. Apply a pea sized amount to cleansed skin every evening. Warm between the palms and smooth over the face avoiding the eye area. Relax…..
Frangipani Monoi Bath & Shower Milk 300ml –
OK, this is where I get super excited for some serious “Me time” in the bathroom. The signature scent of Elemis is Frangipani with its warm and sultry, exotic floral notes. However in this delicious Bath and Shower Milk, the scent is lighter and not as heady as the scent in lotions. Sometimes I find the Frangipani scent a little to overwhelming, but layering this collection the fragrance is just stunning. . Obviously everyone’s sense of smell is different, but I notice more of a sweetness of the white flowers in the bath & shower milk than I do in the oil and lotions. This exotic really relaxes me and puts me in a wonderful mood. 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. Wonderful applied to wet skin in the shower as it really hydrates dry skin and feels beautifully pampering. I love to use it in a warm bath and add 3 capfuls to running water to create a soft, sumptuous, relaxing bathing experience. Leaves me skin feeling clean, smelling wonderful and looking soft and hydrated. Love, love LOVE!!!!
Frangipani Monoi Hand Balm 50g –
Do you know, I cant believe that up until a few years ago, Frangipani was my least favourite Elemis exotic! I used to find it too much, but using these collections over the years, and visiting the House of Elemis and truly enveloping myself in this decedent fragrance it has fast become a favourite. Especially in this beautifully rich hand balm. I am sooooo lazy when it comes to my hands, and it shows. My skin is so dehydrated so I know I need to make the effort, but it is so easy to neglect the hands. Using this Frangipani Monoi Hand Balm has been a huge wake up call. The texture is so divine, it is so deeply hydrating from the very first tiny pea sized amount and I am shocked at the difference in my hands. It adds almost a layer off protection over the backs of the hands and wraps them in that gorgeous scent. I am slight obsessed and love to apply a layer before putting on my gloves to do the early morning school run.
Frangipani Monoi Oil Rich Body Cream 120ml –
Seriously, Elemis are killing me with this collection, I just want to roll round in it all hahahaha! This is the most gorgeous texture! This oil rich body cream applies like a cream but leaves a thin veil of, almost a dry oil, over the body locking in moisture. It does not feel at all greasy but leaves the skin looking absolutely incredible!! Scaly shins, be gone, bumpy arms, be gone, this smoothes out any imperfections and leaves the skin looking almost airbrushed. An absolute winter must have.
The Brown Box : NEW Warm Tonka & Vanilla – HELLO BABY!!!!
This beautifully packaged gift box contains the Cleansing Micellar Water 400ml, Pro-Collagen Marine Cream 30ml and Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream 15ml as above and then a Global Launch aromatic which is the absolutely delightful fragrance sensation that is Warm Tonka & Vanilla. All I can say is Oh My Goodness!! I just want to roll around in this whole collection! This is THE definition of cosy, comfort, warming hugs, and all things nice!! Picture the scene… a roaring log fire, wearing your favourite cashmere sweater with a pair of snuggly woolly socks on drinking a cup of Chai Latte whilst burning a Vanilla Yankee Candle in the background. Seriously, seriously an incredible fragrance. This is the fragrance for those of you that love Vanilla and warming, comforting scents, with a creamy, silky undertone.
NEW Warm Tonka & Vanilla Bath & Shower Milk 300ml –
As much as I like to think of myself as a sexy scent, I think deep down I am really a Warm Tonka kind of girl. I love to be warm and cosy, and this has my name written all over it. Absolutely perfect as a unisex scent too, this is my kind of relaxation. This replenishing bath and shower milk blends extracts of Madagascan Vanilla, Tonka bean and Cocoa Butter to nourish the skin. Wonderful when used on a shower sponge in the shower as the warm water really lets this fragrance “Burst” and perfect when adding 2-3 ( or 4) capfuls into the bath. This is my perfect Autumn/Winter bath soak, that just has the power to completely relax me, enveloping my body in beautiful soft water and delicious scents that leave me feeling perfectly relaxed and ready for bed.
NEW Warm Tonka & Vanilla Hand & Nail Balm 50ml –
This rich and creamy hand balm leaves the hands, nails and cuticles beautifully soft, nourished and healthy looking, whilst enveloping them in the gorgeously warming scent of Warm Tonka & Vanilla A great one for the guys, but also the one that I have been slathering on my hands and nails at night as a bedtime treatment. Beautiful.
NEW Warm Tonka & Vanilla Oil-Rich Body Cream 120ml –
As mentioned above this is a wonderful blend of a cream and oil which makes it melt into the skin beautifully. I love to use this after a warm bath or shower to really hydrate and soften my cold weather ravaged legs, feet and arms. The delicate blends of Spices, Caramels and Vanilla mixed with that Warm Tonka Bean leave an exceptional fragrance on the skin that calms and soothes the mind and soul. A really relaxing product that smells amazing whilst leaving the skin looking fresh, hydrated, youthful and glowing. I adore this product.
Frangipani or Warm Tonka & Vanilla – Which will you choose?
This is such a hard choice to make if you love both fragrances like me. I will most definitely be purchasing both sets for myself but also the Warm Tonka collection for my husband (keeping the skincare for myself) and the Frangipani for the ladies in my family. My favourite, right now, if you pressed me? I would choose Warm Tonka & Vanilla, because I just love to be cosy and toasty at this time of year. The collection contains the most wonderful choice of skin and body care and makes the perfect 6 piece gift for someone special or can easily be split up into skincare and body-care gifts. Included in the gorgeous gift boxes is an additional flat packed box making it easy to gift some of the skincare or the hand cream if you wanted to split this into separate gifts.
The value of this, the biggest, and best ever in my opinion, Elemis QVC TSV is outstanding. I have no idea how they have been able to do this sized collection, with all these exceptional products at this price. With product worth a huge £168.00 and one collection costing only £46.96 (on four easy pay too!) offering you over £120 of savings, all you have to decide is how many and which fragrance.
The Elemis Pro-Collagen Day to Night Skincare Gift 6 Piece Collection is exclusive to QVC as a Todays Special Value on 11th November 2018. However, my lucky readers can purchase theirs early HERE from Monday 5th November. Be warned, these Christmas collections sell out fast!!
