ELEMIS is one of my all-time favorite skincare brands, especially in the fall and winter months. With the lack of humidity, I just want skincare that feels luxurious and hydrating. All of their products are great at delivering moisture, have anti-aging properties and they’re committed to not using harmful chemicals that cause unnecessary dryness and irritation. Especially now that I’m pregnant again, I want cleaner skincare but I don’t want to sacrifice quality and effectiveness. With ELEMIS products, I don’t have to.
I want to share the top three ELEMIS products in my current rotation and the top five reasons I love ELEMIS and the Pro-Collagen Collection. If you decide to give one of these a try, use code CRISTIN20 for 20% off the ELEMIS website.
Top 3 ELEMIS Products Fall 2021
Dynamic Resurfacing Pads // I wrote about these pads earlier this summer and they’re great for everyday toning. Even in the most basic of skincare routines, I suggest a toner and these are one of the best. Can you really argue with 100% of people in a clinical trial who agree these left their skin visibly improved and gave them “smooth and glowing” skin?! Seriously, 100% of people agreed. They’re so easy to add to your routine in both the AM and PM and make such a difference in reducing the appearance of pores, dark spots and general uneven skin tone.
Papaya Enzyme Peel // While this is used like a chemical exfoliant, it’s super gentle and luxurious feeling. This peel is a cream you leave on for 10-15 minutes before rinsing. Because it has natural papaya and pineapple enzymes, it helps dissolve dead skin cells without that abrasive feeling. It doesn’t tingle like the Tri-Acid Peel. I’ve added the Papaya Enzyme Peel to my Sunday self-care skincare routine, where I take some extra time with dermaplaning, exfoliating and hydrating.
Pro-Collagen Marine Cream // This is my #1 recommended ELEMIS product. It is an anti-aging moisturizer created with marine and plant-based actives that immediately improve hydration. This ultra-lightweight gel-cream is sure to leave skin feeling significantly firmer and more resilient. If you are confused on what “marine and plant-based actives” means then let me give you a little information about the ingredients. Padina Pavonica is a Mediterranean algae with anti-aging benefits that is a staple in ELEMIS products. In the Marine Cream, it is combined with antioxidant-rich Ginkgo Biloba and hydrating Chlorella to supremely moisturize skin. It also has Mimosa, an anti-inflammatory, toning astringent with a pleasing smell, and Rose, a natural fragrance with calming properties. The Pro-Collagen Marine Cream has won more than 50 skincare awards worldwide and is clinically proven to increase hydration by up to 248% in just 1 hour. I love it because it feels like butter going on your skin, has a very mild scent, absorbs quickly and layers perfectly under your makeup.
ELEMIS, the #1 luxury skincare brand in Britain, pioneers scientifically-proven skincare products that are sourced from nature. I love that they utilize powerful biological ingredients from above and below the earth’s surface and combine them with aromatics to create high-performance solutions. Every ground-breaking formula is backed by science and is an innovative blend of science with the chemistry of nature, carefully crafted by a dedicated team of explorers, scientists, and skincare experts.
5 REASONS TO LOVE ELEMIS’ PRO-COLLAGEN LINE
HIGH STANDARDS OF QUALITY // All of the ELEMIS products are developed in London and manufactured in England, with the highest standards of quality and safety.
RESULTS DRIVEN // ELEMIS combines high-quality skincare products with cutting-edge patented technology. Every new formula is texted rigorously for maximum efficacy and clinically-proven results.
FORMULATED WITH COLLAGEN // If you don’t know anything about collagen, let me give you the cliff notes version. Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body and makes up about 80% of your skin. When you look at your body as a whole, collagen has a host of benefits but specifically as it pertains to the skin, collagen is responsible for the plumpness and fullness of your skin. As your skin ages, it begins to lose elasticity, strength and suppleness. Making sure you are giving your body the nutrients it needs to create collagen as well as supplementing with collagen-boosting skincare is the key to healthy, glowing skin. The ELEMIS Pro-Collagen collection was created with this in mind and developed with ultra-hydrating marine actives and formulas that deliver skin-plumping hydration.
THE STRENGTH OF MARINE ALGAE // ELEMIS’ signature Marine Algae Complexes are powered by a rainbow of algae. Algae are mini powerhouses of nutrition and are abundant in vitamins, minerals, amino acids and polysaccharides. Each algae contains its own unique nutritional profile and together they help to leave skin feeling hydrated, firmer and more resilient.
AROMATHERAPY // If you have followed for any amount of time then you are aware that I am BIG on smells, especially with skincare. Aromatherapy is a core foundation of ELEMIS’ products and each one is thoughtfully created with natural fragrances and the most luxurious textures. If we’re going my smell and touch alone, no other skincare line can even compete with ELEMIS, in my opinion. They take a holistic approach to skincare and believe in engaging all of the senses on your skin.
