It’s important to have a ritual when it comes to skincare and it’s easier to keep it simple yet effective.
There is one brand that I absolutely swear by (and it’s not just because it is British…woop) and that is ELEMIS. My sister got me into this brand when she worked in a spa that only used their products and I’ve been hooked ever since.
It’s not necessary to purchase the entire collection but the products are a little like pringles, once you pop you just cant stop and now I am borderline obsessive. My top five products that are worth every penny and application have to be:
#1. TRI-ENZYME RESURFACING FACIAL WASH
This gentle facial wash will leave skin revitalised on the daily and leaves skin pure and gently exfoliated. It’s not too heavy and it smells divine. Price point is reasonable and I always go for the 400ml (£58.00) because it will last 8-12 months.
#2. BALANCING LAVENDAR TONER
Ideal for combination skin, this lavender based toner is gentle and refreshing. It is alcohol free and does not include harsh detergents. Again go super sized 400ml because it will last longer (£38.50)
#3. HYDRA-BALANCE DAY CREAM
I have been using this moisturiser for the last year and it always leaves my skin feeling hydrated all day long. It is a thicker consistency and highly fragrant so if you do have sensitive skin perhaps this isn’t the best choice for you (£38.00, 50ml)
#4. HYDRA-NOURISH NIGHT CREAM
This rich night cream helps to nourish skin and repair it from the stresses of daily life as you sleep peacefully. Skin always feels refreshed and smooth when you wake up having used this cream. At £42.00, 50ml, it isn’t the cheapest night cream on the market but…YOLO.
#5. HERBAL LAVENDAR REPAIR MASK
Perfect for a weekly treatment, this repair mask leaves the skin feeling refreshed and rebalanced in less than 15 minutes. It’s the perfect excuse for a Friday night pamper session. (£30.00, 75ml)
The best advantage of Elemis is before you commit to purchasing the larger sized products, they have really handy minis which are perfect if you are exploring which products are best for your skin type. Visit the website at Elemis to see the full product selections.
