A while ago I wrote about some Elemis products I had purchased and fell in love with.
If you’ve not had a chance to read that article just yet, click here. I came across the pro-collagen range whilst running through Heathrow Airport some time last year and was so happy I did. Since that time I’ve purchased a few more pro-collagen products. The Day cream and Night cream have both won beauty awards, and are still some of my favourite products to date.
Today I wanted to write an update about the range I’ve been using so far. Including the pro – collagen cleansing balm and the pro – collagen super serum elixir.
The pro – collagen cleansing balm is marketed as a deep cleansing facial balm, which dissolves make-up, daily grime and pollutants. Great right. Living in the big city where you skin is exposed to all sorts of harmful chemicals, this is a great way to cleanse the skin, without drying it out. It applies really easily. And a little goes a very long way, so even the travel size product lasts forever. After removing, your skin feels clean but not dehydrated. It’s really nice and soft and honestly, just feels lovely.
I started looking into serums to also supplement my skincare routine. I really wanted to find a good Hyaluronic Acid based serum as a foundation. Why? because Hyaluronic is one of the major components of the skins matrix. It fills the gap between skin cells and is responsible for plumping up the integrity of the skin, by drawing water to the skins uppermost layer. In doing so, it keeps the skin looking fresh and hydrated. So for me, this was a natural step one.
It wasn’t a difficult choice for me to start with Elemis. I love their moisturisers’ and therefore knew I couldn’t go too far wrong with this serum. I also like to try brands as a whole to see how their products work together. I have to say, I really wasn’t disappointed. The serum is lovely and light to touch. Applies really easily to the skin and smells so nice. It’s not too heavily fragranced and not overpowering. It feels like a very refined oil, without being oily. It penetrates quickly and doesn’t leave a sticky or a very shiny a residue. The Elemis Night Cream goes on a minute or two later, and that’s it.
My skin really does feel amazing following this night-time routine. It feels like a nightly pamper party for face and I can just tell that my skin is in really good hands. Now for that silk pillow case.
