Is it Christmas? Seriously…..have I been asleep for five months and now it’s Christmas? It feels like Christmas because this HUGE Elemis Pro-Collagen 24/7 Face & Body Collection of skincare goodies is totally reminiscent of one of their gloriously decadent, great value QVC Christmas collections!! I remember seeing this back in January and was in shock at the amount of product at the incredibly affordable price!
My obsession with skincare began when I was about 9 years old and used to “steal” some of my mums Oil of Ulay…oh how I loved the feeling of rubbing a potion and lotion into my skin and the way it left my skin feeling soft. Roll on to when I was 18 (26 years ago) and working full time and my interest in skincare and having great skin led me to two major brands Clarins and Elemis…The fancy packaging, how special I felt in the department store buying it but most importantly how special I felt using it. My love affair began with Elemis all those years ago and remains as true today as it did then. I mean if it isn’t broke then don’t fix it right?
The Pro-Collagen 24/7 Face and Body Collection from Elemis is the most perfect treat for yourself or a loved one at the most perfect time of year!! The Summer has finally arrived and with it comes those long, hot, restless, humid nights of no sleep. I for one look awful on lack of sleep which is why this collection, containing some of my all time favourite products, is a life saver!
Stressed skin? Check! Tired skin? Check! Dehydrated skin from lack of water in this weather Check and Check…I am so here for this bag of goodies and I know you will be too. Even if you have the most perfect, beautiful, radiant looking skin already, indulge in this pampering box of great face and body products to keep your skin at optimum health and in tip top condition. Included in this collection are the following products:
Elemis Cleansing Micellar Water 200ml
Every great skincare routine needs to start with a great cleanse. If your face is covered in sweat, SPF, make up, dirt, grime or pollution you are just creating a barrier of nastiness. This Cleansing Micellar water from Elemis, as you already know, is a product I use almost daily and have done in forever! It is quick to use, can be a first cleanse, or an only cleanse if you are not wearing make up or it’s a morning cleanse. It is just fantastic. Now if you had the November QVCUK TSV collection from Elemis HERE that contained the Supersize version of this, you will be more than ready ready to restock, if you are new to the product, then me explain why it is so loved.
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, 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 remove my make up and SPF with this first and then go onto a second cleanse with my Pro-Collagen Balm (HERE)
This Micellar Water feels beautiful and cool on the skin, leaving it feeling really fresh afterwards.
Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream in a choice of Original or Ultra Rich 30ml
Pro-Collagen Marine Cream is and always has been my all time favourite Moisturiser. Everyone that knows me knows my love for this product and with good reason. Regardless of age, this has come with me through every stage of my skin, illness, dehydration, good skin, bad skin, you name it this moisturiser has seen me through. All you have to do in this collection is make a choice which one is best for you from Pro-Collagen Marine Cream Original or Pro-Collagen Marine Cream Ultra Rich.
Pro-Collagen Marine Cream Ultra Rich – Clinically proven to reduce the depth of wrinkles, and improve the skins tone and firmness within 14 days, is it any wonder I am in love with Pro-Collagen Marine Cream. The Ultra Rich version is not only perfect for a dehydrated or drier skin but also wonderful during the Summer months, when the Sun is leaving the skin feeling parched and tight and we may not be drinking enough water. Texture wise it is incredibly lightweight and only minimally thicker than the original, it melts into the skin like a dream creating the most beautiful base for make up. Most importantly though, is the noticeable difference to the skin from day one, looking more hydrated and to day 14 looking healthier, more radiant and fine lines appear softer. Your skin needs this in Summer…fact!
- Pro-Collagen Marine Cream Original – As with the above Ultra Rich Version, the almost Oceanic mixed with Botanical scent of this cream immediately relaxes me and makes me take a deep breath, every single time i use it. It is that immediate feeling of recognition, like home, that feeling that all will be well with my skin when i apply this, that I love hahaha! Sounds daft, but for me it’s true! We have all heard about the benefits of living in the Mediterranean with their beautiful diet, sea air and well….Elemis use the unique Mediterranean Algae – Padina Pavonica in this cream, combined with Ginko Biloba to provide that all important Free Radical Production. Add to that the blend with Rose and Mimosa Absolute and you have a powerful anti ageing product. I am often complimented on my skin and the one constant that has remained for all these years has been this product so……. 🙂

Elemis Peptide4 Night Recovery Cream-Oil 30ml
Since its launch back in July 2017, Peptide4 Night Recovery Cream-Oil has become an absolute staple in my skincare regime. I am constantly repurchasing this product and make no apologise for it. If you follow me on Instagram you are probably bored to tears of seeing me use this but there is a very good reason why this has found its slot in my evening routine.
At night, our body temperature rises, add to that these warm humid nights of Summer and we can wake looking absolutely exhausted. Our skin looks grey, dehydrated and no matter how great a routine we used the evening before, it’s just not enough…enter this product.
I fell in love with this product when I first had a sneak peek of it back in May 2017 and don’t get me started on 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 right? 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.
Although this is a cream-oil there is no oily residue feel, it is a silky lotion. One pump goes really far over the skin, but on days where I have been out in the sun, I use two pumps and take 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 will forever be a fan of this product.
Elemis Peptide4 Plumping Pillow Facial 30ml
A brand new product to me and a recent launch for Elemis, I was super excited to try this. I have read such incredible things about it in the press and knew I had to try it for myself. Working in perfect harmony with the above Night Recovery Cream-Oil the Plumping Pillow Facial is as decedent as it sounds. A beautifully cool and soothing gel masks that glides across the skin immediately placing a protect veil over it and signalling to the body that it is time to repair and rehydrate itself throughout the night.
It smells beautifully exotic thanks to the Night Scented Stock, Ylang Ylang and Sweet Orange and really soothes the soul as you apply it. Powered by flowers and with Star Arvensis and Peptide4 the skins barrier function becomes balanced and supported and hydrating actives are sealed in the skin. The result? Perfectly plump, bright hydrated skin in the morning! The packaging is gorgeous, the scent is incredible and the whole experience is pleasurable. For me this is a great Summer sos remedy, or after a period of stress or illness when my skin needs a pick me up. Wow…..what a great addition to the whole Peptide4 range!
Elemis Frangipani Monoi Bath & Shower Milk 300ml
A huge favourite aromatic among Elemis lovers is Frangipani. It is the signature scent of Elemis with warm and sultry, exotic floral notes. In this Bath and Shower Milk, the scent is lighter and not as heady as the scent in lotions, which is great as it forms the base layer for the rest of your body products. 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. Frangipani Monoi Bath & Shower Milk really 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.
Elemis Frangipani Monoi Oil-Rich Body Cream 120ml
This is definitley one to pack in your holiday suitcase as it looks beautiful on sun-kissed and darker skin tones! Obviously, as a body lotion it is perfect for everyone but something about the way the skin glistens in the sun when applied over a tan, makes this a Summer skin must have. This oil rich body cream applies like a cream -obvs- 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! It seems to smooth out imperfections on the arms and legs, nourishes the skin deeply and leaves it feeling hydrated for hours, plus….who can resist that lingering scent of Frangipani!
