ELEMIS Beauty Heroes
If you’re looking for some ELEMIS beauty recommendations, you have come to the right place. Featuring both best-sellers and new releases, this is a guide to introduce you to some of the ELEMIS beauty heroes.
I totally appreciate that this appears to be a very extravagant beauty haul (and it is!) but it contains both gifted items and products that I have bought myself in the past 6 months. I love ELEMIS, I have been using products from their skincare range on an on-off basis for about almost 7 years, anyone who has used their products will agree that it’s worth every penny.
The Experts In Skincare
ELEMIS is a highly scientific beauty brand and as experts in skincare, they have invested in ways to help you drastically improve your skin. As well as offering highly effective beauty products, each ELEMIS concession offers treatments (Debenhams and Fenwick, for example), and before they give you a relaxing facial treatment, they provide a unique SkinLab consultation which takes a close look at the condition of your skin to personalise your facial and to determine which of their products will benefit you the most. You will see your skin in a way you’ve never seen it before.
During my 20s, I got a proper introduction into a proper skincare routine. I discovered new brands and I experimented with various beauty products to familiarise myself with what suited my skin type the best.
Now I’m in my 30s, I’ve taken it up a notch and I’m taking skincare a little more seriously. Although my skin is clearer than ever before, I can see the changes (age spots, fine lines, a change in texture, etc) but all I can do is do my best to preserve my skin’s youthful appearance.
These are some of my favourite ELEMIS products – new and old!
If you’ve always wanted to try something from ELEMIS, let is be a product from their Pro-Collagen range.
This nice little 4 piece gift set is a great introductory starter collection for anyone who is new to the brand. It includes a Pro-Collagen Advanced Eye Treatment, Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm (and cloth), Pro-Collagen Marine Cream with SPF 30, and a pair Pro-Collagen Hydra Gel Eye Mask – all in a convenient travel size.
The key ingredient in ELEMIS Pro-Collagen range is Padina Pavonica, a brown algae which has been clinically proven to have anti-ageing properties. This tightens, firms, plumps out fine lines, and hydrates.
This was voted Vogue’s Beauty Hero in 2017 and I believe it deserves every accolade. The suppleness, firmness, texture, and hydration of your skin will improve within the first 2 weeks of using this face cream.
Whilst I’m using the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream from the starter kit (shown above), my Mum (who is the most loyal ELEMIS customer in the world) treated herself to the limited edition in a super size 100ml, designed in a lovely packaging. ELEMIS’ best-selling anti-ageing has been giving this special makeover in support of Women For Women International in an initiative to change women’s lives.
Through sales of the limited edition Pro-Collagen Marine Cream and a donation of £35,000, ELEMIS have teamed up with Women For Women International, an organisation started in 1993 to help women survivors of war to rebuild their lives.
The 4 products from left to right
I used to be scared of using this product because the name of it sounded aggressive to me. I could not be more wrong.
The Papaya Enzyme Peel is a non-abrasive cream exfoliator (suitable for sensitive skin) and is formulated with fruit acids (papaya and pineapple) to gently buff away the dead skin cells to reveal a brighter, softer, more radiant appearance.
It doesn’t smell as tropical as I imagined it would be, but it’s really lovely a fresh all the same. (Top tip: Don’t forget to protect your skin with a good quality SPF the days after using a peel.)
This is pretty pricy for a body moisturiser, is probably what you’re thinking right now? Am I right?
Clinically proven to reduce the appearance of cellulite, this Targeted Toning Body Moisturiser shows results in 8 weeks when used twice daily. During an Independant user trials, 100% of the product testers said that the appearance of skin had improved, the dimpled texture of the skin had reduced, and that their skin felt firmer.
There is a bit of knack of using this body moisturiser. Use on the areas you want to target (mine would be inner thighs), the warmth of your hands will turn the cream in to an oil, you have to massage, pinch, cup, and knuckle in to the skin to stimulate circulation and stimulate drainage for best results.
It sounds like hard work but at least you can do it at the comfort of your own home and it saves your money on massages (as nice as they are, I can’t afford to go on a regular basis) and cosmetics procedures (it’s so not for me, I’m scared of everything!).
After reading rave reviews about this, I decided to give this a go a while ago, and I’m now on my second bottle. If you ever feel like your skin has gone through a day of stress (city pollution, lack of water, tiredness), this restoring night cream-oil allows the skin to recover during the night, so it almost “re-sets” in a way.
The restoring formula includes oils, omega-3, antioxidants and vitamin E, this potent but light cream-oil rebalances and repairs the skin while you get your beauty sleep.
Facial oils are an essential step in my skincare routine, it helps to protect, condition, and balance the oil (oil on oil is very balancing, I promise!). This was kindly sent to me by the babes at ELEMIS but I’ve passed it on to my mum because Pro-Collagen Marine Oil is more suitable to older women (from say, mid 40’s) as it targets wrinkles. My mum can make full use of this, while I’ll stick to something less potent.
I sampled this at the beauty counter and all you need are two drops for the full face. It has a light, water-like consistency, and glides on to the skin without leaving a greasy residue. Maximising the marine ingredients, this provides a boost of hydration, plumps the skin with moisture whilst reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
Last, but not least, something a little unusual and strictly speaking, technically it isn’t a “beauty” hero, but any excuse to show of my newest candle – and this one just so happens to make my room smell like a luxury spa.
The Life Elixirs Sleep Candle from ELEMIS is to help promote a good night’s sleep, it contains 12 essentials oils to help you sleep well, de-stress, and relax.
I don’t sleep well at the best of times, but now that I’ve returned to self-employment, I find myself awake at stupid hours. I’ll either be working on my laptop until 3am or I’ll worrying about something or other.
Lets face it, a candle isn’t going to make me conk out (why oh why am I not one of those people who falls asleep as soon as their head hits the pillow!). But it does create a nice atmosphere to allow my mind to settle, and help me relax and unwind.
