Softly Softly Daily Moisturiser
I am prone to eczema and many face creams irritate my skin, leaving it itchy and sore. The Elemis Softly Softly Daily Moisturiser is a gentle, light cream that left my skin feeling soft and hydrated, without that greasy feeling that many face creams leave. The rosehip seed oil and sweet almond oil create a soothing and softening quality providing the skin with a hydrating boost and a healthy glow.
Using only natural ingredients, Elemis Softly Softly Daily Moisturiser encourages skin renewal and suits the needs of all skin types, including young skin (apparently those of us with young skin should be attempting to prevent the signs of aging already!). After using the Elemis face cream for a few weeks my skin looked radiant and healthy, and I would thoroughly recommend it.
Deep Clean Purifying Face Mask / Magical Moisture Quenching Face Mask
I love clay face masks and I certainly wasn't disappointed by this one. The Elemis Deep Clean Purifying Face Mask is a blend of frankincense oil and goji berry extract, helping to draw out the skin's impurities, refine and hydrate. The Vitamin E also helps to soothe and soften the skin. The clay mask smoothes onto the skin with ease, and the pleasant aroma relaxes instantly.
After applying the face mask I would recommend sitting down for ten minutes (the suggested time) rather then getting on with household chores – and forgetting you've got it on! Second attempt was much more successful and the mask came off with ease, using warm water. The skin is left supple, soft and fresh feeling, with a healthy glow. Following the mask with the Elemis Softly Softly Moisturiser is a must too.
The Elemis Magical Moisture Quenching Face Mask is a just as delightful experience. During the recent temperamental weather, my skin has been very dry and rough. This mask re-hydrated and quenched my under-nourished skin: the result producing exceptional softness and radiancy. The white lupin, arctic cranberry seed oil and apple extract enhance the nourishing moisture boost and left my skin feeling great.
