Hello My Lovelies,
Hope you are all doing well and are having a lovely week so far.
I was very kindly sent a few Elemis goodies and amongst them was these two absolutely wonderful 'Elemis Fresh Skin' products, the 'Peachy Perfect Gentle Face Wash' and the 'Softly Softly Daily Moisturiser'. I have been using them religiously since i received them and i can honestly say i have really been enjoying them and have seen a difference in my skin which i have been really pleased about. The 'Fresh Skin' range was specifically designed for the needs of younger skin and market this range for the 20's which is perfecto as i am 20 myself haha. Elemis state that skin will appear brighter and more radiant whilst the Fresh Skin range targets problems, oily and blemish prone skin which is perfect as we have all been there where we have had those pesky breakouts. All of the products within the range is formulated with naturally active ingredients which have been specially chosen for their ability to help cleanse, exfoliate, moisturise and target the problems of young skin.
Elemis have some simple rules for us to look to for when out skin needs a little TLC -
- Feed Your Skin
- Remeber To Breathe
- Eat Healthily
- Sleep Well
- Have a Break
- Spend Time On You
- Keep Cleansing
- Invest In Your Skin
- Never Get Lazy, Exercise!
The Fresh Skin Peachy Perfect Gentle Fash Wash is the perfect morning cleanser and it is something i have been constantly reaching for on a daily basis. Firstly, the yummy peach scent is the first thing you notice when you pump some product onto your hand and when you massage it into your face and i think it is absolutely divine! The hydrating Chicory extract conditioning elderflower and skin-awakening lemon, leave the complexion beautifully soft and super radiant, they aid by hydrating, conditioning and awakening the skin which is just what i need in the mornings when i am not looking at my best haha! For me personally even though this is a daily wash i prefer to use this in the morning and opt for something else for my night time skincare routine, however, i do occasionally use this at night when i would prefer a more gentle cleanse in the evening. I have actually packed this away to bring away to LA with me as i feel it will be a really lovely skincare product to use without it vigorously removing my tan haha. I have been using this for a good few months now and i have to say i have only gone through maybe an inch of the product which you can see in the picture. A little really does go a long way as a small pea sized amount is enough to lather your entire face.
The Elemis Fresh Skin Softly Softly Daily Moisture is a really lovely product i really enjoy using in the mornings. Enriched with seaweed extract, this light and non-greasy daily moisturiser helps protect and moisturise at the same time. Rosehip seed oil and sweet almond oil deliver soothing and softening qualities ensuring the skin receives an instant hydrating boost. Your skin is left revitalised and more radiant which is something i am always looking for in a daily moisturiser. I have also found that this moisturiser has not made my skin breakout which is amazing as i find some moisturiser can be a little 'too' thick in some cases and they completely block the poors and cause more damage than good. Moisturisers work by sealing water into the skin and keeping it hydrated and supple, i do like applying this just after washing my face in the morning where my skin is still slightly damp so it has a full effect throughout the day. Signs of fatigue and everyday life can reflect through your face by dulling your complexion and causing dark circles so combined with the right skincare, having a good nights sleep and by drinking lots of water we can combat this haha. The one thing that might not apply to everyone is the unique scent of this product...it is not a terrible smell but it is quite noticeable and might not be for everyone. To me it reminds me of a more herbal and seaweed and rosehip scent which is reflected from the natural ingredients, i really don't mind as i feel more herbal scents help with relaxing the body and make you feel more pampered.
Overall, i have really been enjoying using both of these products together and by themselves. I have really been loving experimenting with skincare an finding the right products that suit me. Elemis is a skincare brand i have only really discovered this year and have enjoyed using other products like their 'Herbal Lavender Repair Mask' and i love using that when my skin needs a little TLC and pick me up asap! :D Hope you all enjoyed this skincare post, i would love to know what skincare goodies you are constantly reaching for right now! If you would like to try out any Elemis goodies then you can take a peek through the 'Time to Spa' website.
