Let’s talk skincare…
It’s been a while since I’ve written about great skincare range. I’ve tried and tested a few skincare brands over the past few months, and Elemis is one of my favourites.
I was first introduced to this brand whilst travelling on holiday. I quickly grabbed a travel size cleanser and that was it. I knew I wanted to try more. Today, I want to talk about the Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream Day Cream and Night Cream.
As mentioned in my previous posts, when you’re young, in your early twenties, getting a healthy skincare routine and practising good habits is essential. Simply remembering to cleanse, tone and moisturise is great. When you’re looking for a skincare range in this age group, ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid are important to help keep the skin hydrated, soft and supple. It does this by drawing water towards the skin’s upper layers.
Moving along to skincare in your thirties, you may want to look for products to help restore collagen which is unfortunately naturally depleting over time. Collagen rich products help to restore the skins natural elasticity and plumpness of youth, which is where the award winning Elemis pro-collagen range shines.
Rich with collagen, the day cream is light and fluffy, smooth to apply and a naturally lovely smell which is light and agreeable. I’m not a huge fan of heavily scented skincare products, as nobody wants to feel like they are applying perfume to their face!
With Elemis, my skin felt hydrated and well moisturised throughout the day. I really love this moisturiser. If your a little heavy handed like me, a little goes a long long way.
I think this is a great product for dry skin all year round, but definitely a go to for combination/ dry skin in the Winter months, just because its a little thicker in texture.
In the Summer, the Clarins moisturing day cream is super light, moisturising and quick to absorb. On a hot sticky day, this would be my go to.
The Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Night cream gets even better. This is a gorgeously rich and moisturising oxygenating facial treat for your skin at night. You know your skin is getting all the love it needs as you feel this product penetrate deeper within the skin layers. Skin is soft and supple but still feels light. I love this product. All year round, this is a fantastic night cream.
Together, if your looking for a skincare brand that is affordable and great quality with decent sized products that won’t break the bank. I really feel Elemis is a great place to start. I can’t wait to try their other products soon, especially their serums.
