Sponsored Advertorial in Association with Elemis
There is something so refreshing about September with the promise of new beginnings after the long Summer. I think it is because I have children and September means the start of a new school year, a new season, time to refresh and regroup. To help us refresh our skin Elemis are launching an incredible skincare collection. The Pro-Collagen Skincare Secrets Collection is perfect for refreshing and renewing the skin.
For many people skincare, is just that… a way to care for our skin, but for me this iconic brand has been with me every step of my life. Through work, redundancies, pregnancies, sleepless nights, illness, adult acne, grief, happiness, Summer, Winter, you kind of get my drift.
When I was 18 (26 years ago) I started an incredible career in the stock market and so I had the luxury of high end skincare from an early age. Elemis was the “New kid on the block” and though I didn’t need anti-ageing (of course I didn’t) it looked pretty, smelt nice and felt great on. There on began my love affair with Pro-Collagen Marine Cream. The more i used it I began to appreciate the amazing Marine ingredients, how my skin always looked fed and hydrated no matter what was going on in my life or how busy, tired, partied out I was and more and more people began complimenting me on my skin. “If it aint broke don’t fix it” has never held more true than it does for my love of this product. I mean, if I have been devoted to it in 26 years, it must be good!
Now, my job as a Beauty Blogger, requires me to test and try new products. Of course their are other brands I adore and use regularly, I would be lying if I said I didn’t, but when I want that “Hug”, that moment of comfort or my skin needs to feel replenished, its the Pro-Collagen Range I reach for.
As we head into Autumn and Winter, after what i think has been a wonderfully hot Summer, our skin needs some hydration, moisturiserisation and protection from the sometimes sudden and harsh changes in the weather.
This beautifully gift boxed collection is one that you do not want to miss! It speaks to me on every level as it contains some of my all time favourite Elemis products as well as an outstanding new product launch. Come with me whilst i take you on a journey…..my journey with Elemis, the brand i have been using for 26 years, the brand that has carried me through lifes, trials, tribulations and celebrations. This is the brand you need to experience to see change…
Included in this stunning gift box are the following products :
NEW Pro-Collagen Rose Facial Oil 15ml
Wow….If you want your skin to feel soft, this is for you…if lines and wrinkles are a concern, this is for you….if skin sensitivity is an issue, then welcome to Pro-Collagen Rose Facial Oil. Have you ever felt the soft, velvety texture of an English Rose across your skin? Think back to when you were a child making perfume from rose petals, and as you picked them, you could feel the soft velvety texture of the petal. Then this is exactly how this oil will feel on the skin. Possibly the most Perfect Rose Oil i have ever tried, and i have tried a lot. This will not only take your skin on a journey of improvement, but will also take you on a sensory journey.
This light, delicate oil, has an almost dry texture, yet the moment you apply it to your face, neck and décolleté each morning and evening, you will appreciate the slip factor that just a couple of drops provides. The scent is very indicative of an English countryside, it is fresh and obviously floral but in a delicate and non cloying way. Up to 17 Varieties of Organic Rose are exclusively sourced from a Family owned farm, deep in the English Countryside, to create the English Rose Oleo Extract. “Here, the roses are grown sustainably and harvested by hand to ensure the highest quality. Their petals are then steeped in Safflower oil for two days. The result is an exquisitely-scented oil with soothing and nourishing properties.”
Suitable for all skin types including sensitive because of its soothing properties, you have the luxury of being able to apply such exquisite skincare to your skin and see an almost immediate difference. A trio of Rosa Damascena, English Rose Oleo Extract and Rosehip Seed Oil, leave the skin feeling so, so soft unlike anything I have felt before, a blend of Padina Pavonica, Roaring Water Kelp and Coastal Extract replenishes and smoothes the skin with a burst of hydration – whilst Sweet Almond, Jojoba and Coconut oils provide that layer of protection to seal in hydration. Without any shadow of a doubt this is truly the most luxurious, exquisite and pampering Rose oil I have ever used. Fine lines be gone, dehydrated Summer skin…disappear, glowing, younger looking hydrated skin is here. A true must have product.
Pro-Collagen Advanced Eye Treatment 15ml
During those warm Summer months we have just seen, our eye area may have become overworked. We were squinting more due to the sunlight and may have struggled with puffy eyes due to hay fever or allergies (or two much Rose) . Whatever the season the Pro-Collagen Advanced Eye Treatment is a key product to incorporate into your skincare regime. It works exceptionally well at hydrating the skin around the eye area whilst getting to work by smoothing and relaxing those fine lines and wrinkles. For me, the gel texture is a must have as it instantly cools, refreshes and brightens the eye area and sinks in super quickly with a few gentle taps of the ring finger. Infused with Padina Pavonica, Blue Flower Linseed and a sophisticated Amino Acid Complex, it tones and firms the eye area whilst locking in vital hydration. Wonderful if kept in the fridge to really cool the eyes, perfect used all year round. Can be used both morning and evening without leaving any sticky residue behind.
Pro-Collagen Marine Cream Rich 15ml
Now, you know my love for all things “Pro-Collagen” it is time to share with you why I love this product so much. Pro-Collagen Marine Cream Ultra Rich is 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. This Ultra Rich version is not only perfect for a dehydrated or drier skin but also wonderful coming out of those Summer months, where the Sun has left the skin feeling parched and tight, into those cooler, more windy months where we think about turning on the heating (Gulp). Texture wise it is incredibly lightweight and only minimally thicker than the original, it melts into the skin perfectly 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. My absolute Holy Grail Moisturiser.
Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream 30ml
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 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…..
This collection really is full of “Your Skincare Secrets” it is one of those regimes where everyone will be complimenting you on your skin and asking you what you are using. I cannot hide the fact that I am a Huge Elemis fan (clearly) but I also know this regime works.
The boxed gift set is absolutely beautiful, possibly my favourite of all the boxed designs they have done and would make the most wonderful gift. For me this is all about pampering myself now the kids are back at school, it is all abut self care and self love and having great skin is where it is at with me.
