Elemis Anti-Ageing Cleansing Collection

For a little while now I've been using a New Cleanser from Elemis and all I'm going to say is OMG!
Seriously I never thought I would find a cleanser which could rivel Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish but my god this cleanser is and I LOVE it ♥ The cleanser is part of a special kit offer called Anti-Ageing Cleansing Collection.

♥ £48 ♥

Elemis have a special offer where you can save yourself 50% off which is amazing! I would seriously recommend you take a look at this offer as you are getting some full sized products in this kit.

The kit contains-

♥ Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser 150ml Full Sise (£27.60)
♥ Soothing Apricot Toner 200ml Full Size (£19.40)
♥ Papaya Enzyme Peel 15ml
♥ Pro-Collagen Marine Cream 15ml
♥ Luxury Bag and 100% Cotton cleansing mitt.

The bag looks nice and is a great size with a main section and then 2 pockets for storage, the texture of the bag is almost like a fake leather which seems hardwearing. I like the material of the bag, great for wipping and keeping clean.

I have totally put my normal skincare routine on hold and have been using all the above products and my skin looks brill. If you follow me on twitter you may have seen I tweeted about my dry skin and how my foundation and blusher looks patchy on my skin. So I was more than happy to try a new skincare routine. I wasn't sure why my skin was so dry? Maybe the change of seasons? However since using these products my skin feels and looks much better.

Pro- Radiance cleanser is so rich and creamy, which is exactly what my skin needs! For me the difference between this and C & P is the scent and the texture. The scent is soft and natural whilst the texture is much more creamier and seems to go that little bit longer, this is probably thanks to the rich texture. This is worth every penny and really can not rate this enough. So it comes to no surprise when I say the cleanser won an award last year!
My skin feels and looks brighter, my eye makeup just melts away which is such a bonus with a cream cleanser. The natural ingredients benefit the skin in numerous ways such as purifying, balancing and packed full of Anti-Oxidants. The contains a mitt which I have been using along with my muslin cloths.

Soothing Apricot Toner has become a must for me and I look forward to using this in my routine. If I'm honest toner has to be the one product which I seem to miss out in my routine. What makes this Toner so different I hear you say? Well for starters it's a spray! So for lazy me I don't need to grab cotton wool I can just spritz this over my face after cleansing. The scent is a lovely soothing Apricot which is great for sensitive and hormonal skin types. You can also soak 2 cotton pads and use them as a calming eye treatment. I hate my pores especially on my nose and so this has become an important part of my routine now to help tighten them.

Pro-Collagen Marine Cream smells sublime and you can can just tell by the scent and the feel of product this is a professional top quality moisturiser. Elemis say this is their most popular and powerful anti-ageing cream. Pro-Collagen Marine cream has won 2 awards, Best Day Cream by The Natural Health Awards 2010 and then again for the Fabulous Magazine where the cream was voted Best Face moisturiser 2010.
The mixture of ingredients are meant to deliver visible results within 15 days, all I can say is my skin feels like it's back on track and my foundation looks and lasts all day now.

Elemis say-

Clinically proven to * reduce the appearance of wrinkle depth by up to 78%
* Increase skin hydration and moisture levels up to 45%

Papaya Enzyme Peel has been a favourite of mine for some years now. I was first introduced to this product when i visited a local salon where I regulary had facials. The salon used Elemis and one of these products was the Enzyme Peel. I remember the therapist saying the results are much better than your traditional scrub exfoliator. I of course was very interested to learn more about this product. My skin type is Normal- Dry and so I have to be careful and keep ontop of my exfloiation else my skin can sometimes resemble dull and tired looking. You apply the product as you would a mask and leave on the skin for 10-15mins. The active fruit enzymes work their magic by smoothing and clarifying the skin and nibbling away at dead skin cells. To reveal a brighter healthier complexion.

Have you tried Elemis? What products have you tried and enjoy using?

The special offer kit can be purchased online at timetospa and costs a very reasonable £48 don't forget you are saving 50%.

  1. I've not tried any of the Elemis products but leaning towards purchasing the papaya enzyme peel, it sounds promising! xo
