To preface, these items were gifted** but I was so excited to try some products from Elemis over the past few weeks. I tried out their Superfood Face Oil, Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm, Pro-Collagen Marine Cream with SPF, Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Pads and Pro-Collagen Eye Revive Mask. All of these were so nice to work with and I’m especially pleased with the Marine Cream because it is a lightweight, good-smelling cream with a high SPF (30) that didn’t break through makeup! No better time to stock up on a new SPF for the sunny days ahead.
I put the Resurfacing Facial Pads up against my beloved Paula’s Choice BHA chemical exfoliant and it stood pretty darn well. First use successfully rid my forehead of excess texture and fine bumps and the second use made my cheeks feel soft and smooth. Over time these pads claim to accelerate skin cell turnover and shockingly are suggested to be used twice a day. These seem like the perfect intro to chemical exfoliant-type skincare.
Another memorable mention, the Cleansing Balm. I truly cannot believe I have never used a cleansing balm before but this product is always what I assumed they would be like! A small bit of lather helped disperse product across my face and left me feeling clean, but not tight. It wasn’t the best makeup remover, however, so be sure to use after removing with something intended for that use.
After being familiar with the brand but never having tried anything, I’m stoked on Elemis. I see myself purchasing more of multiple of these products in the future. Highly recommend! If you have any specific questions on anything, let me know. I’m happy to help 🙂
