5 Reasons Why I Love ELEMIS’ Pro-Collagen Product Line

Sponsored by ELEMIS & ShopStyle.

As the temperatures start to dwindle and the humidity starts to drop, my skin is always in need of a little extra hydration. ELEMIS products are routinely at the top of my list for must-have skincare, especially when you are interested in delivering moisture, using skincare with anti-aging properties that help your skin retain elasticity, plump the appearance of your skin and restore a youthful glow. I first tried ELEMIS in 2018 and it has been a staple in my skincare routine ever since.

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.

Today, I’m going to share my personal favorite ELEMIS line, the best-selling Pro-Collagen Collection. It couples rich marine and plant actives with the holy grail of skincare, collagen, to deliver products that work to plump skin as well as smooth and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Every product in the Pro-Collagen line will help brighten, rejuvenate, and hydrate your skin. They also have three new products that I was able to review: Pro-Collagen Tri-Acid Peel, Pro-Collagen Energising Cleanser & Pro-Collagen Eye Revive Mask.

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. 


Pro-Collagen Eye revive Mask

Pro-Collagen Eye Revive Mask  // This moisture-plumping eye mask is formulated with next generation Flash Filler Hyaluronic Acid, wrinkle-reducing Watermelon Snow Algae and antioxidant-rich Bush Clover to deeply hydrate and reduce the visible effects of tension and strain around the eye contour. The bouncy gel texture feels cool and refreshing on the skin and instantly leaves the eye area looking smoother and more youthful. The 3-in-1 formula can be used as an overnight anti-ageing mask, a hydrating under eye primer and a moisturising rescue balm to smooth and rejuvenate the delicate skin around the eyes during the day.

Elemis Tri-Acid Peel

Pro-Collagen Tri-Acid Peel  // This one tingles, but in a good way, and I was impressed with how soft my skin felt the next morning. Formulated with an 8% Tri-Acid Complex of Lactobionic, Asiatic and Mandelic Acids, it lifts away dull and dead skin cells for a smoother and renewed-looking appearance. The concentrated formula is clinically proven to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles while improving your skin tone. I found that it revealed brighter skin and that my pores were visibly tighter. 

Elemis Pro-Collagen Energising Marine Cleanser

Pro-Collagen Energising Cleanser // Ok I LOVE THIS stuff. First of all, it smells so good! It’s also supercharged with minerals Magnesium, Zinc and Copper and a trio of acids that leaves skin looking beautifully revived and rejuvenated. It has the perfect blend of moisture boosting cleansing while also removing makeup. It leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean but not stripped of moisture. 


Cristin Cooper_ELEMIS_Pro_Collagen_Collection

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. 

Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm // This is ELEMIS’ No.1 best seller and it can to transform into 3 unique textures for the ultimate cleansing experience. It nourishes as a balm, easily removes makeup as a cleansing oil and hydrates as a cleansing milk. The mineral oil-free formula also infuses Rose and Mimosa waxes with Elderberry, Starflower and Optimega™ Oils. Its unique blend of 9 essential oils including Lavender, Chamomile and Eucalyptus smell like heaven in a jar to invigorate the senses. 

Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm // A spin on the original Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm, but with soothing English Rose Oleo Extract, making it perfect for sensitive skin.  Upon contact with water, it emulsifies to a hydrating milk that easily rinses off, creating an exceptional cleansing experience. The mineral oil-free formula also infuses Rose and Mimosa waxes with Elderberry, Starflower and Optimega™ Oils. It nourishes the skin’s lipid barrier, soothing it with hydration, leaving the skin feeling smooth and looking radiant.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Oil

Pro-Collagen Marine Oil // This might be my few favorite facial oil. I’ve been using it consistently for two weeks and am loving the hydration it gives my skin and the smell as it works to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is formulated with a trio of marine actives including Padina Pavonica, Golden Seaweed and Roaring Water Kelp, the lightweight formula delivers maximum, skin-plumping moisture for a more youthful look.

Pro-Collagen Hydra-Gel Eye Mask // You guys know that I LOVE an eye mask!! The ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Hydra-Gel Eye Mask is yet another clinically proven product (are you sensing a theme?!?) that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as it instantly smooths, tightens and hydrates. Potent plankton extract, combined with the power of Padina Pavonica and Chlorella, work to instantly tighten your skin, while my absolute favorite ingredient, Hyaluronic Acid, gives you a blast of hydration. I like to put these on at night after I cleanse my skin but before I apply any other products but my favorite way to use these is to keep them in the fridge and put them on first thing in the morning as I fix my coffee. You can even wear them while you apply makeup, remove them and continue on with your skincare or beauty routine.

Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream // Another wonderful moisturizer from ELEMIS’ Pro-Collagen, Anti-Aging collection is their Pro-Collagen Marine Cream Oxygenating Night Cream. This clinically proven night cream has an exceptional blend of Laminaria Digitata and Red Algae along with Mediterranean algae, Padina Pavonica, that helps improve the appearance of skin suppleness, firmness and elasticity. Sesame and avocado oils help to reveal a radiant complexion the next morning. I have been working the ELEMIS Oxygenating Night Cream into my skincare routine after cleansing, toning, retin-a and any serums. It’s very hydrating and I personally thinks acts as a great barrier to help my correcting products stay put!

Elemis Pro-Collagen Collection

Pro-Collagen Overnight Matrix // This is a newer product to me, but I have been impressed with the next morning’s results. This next generation night cream targets the areas of the face where stress shows the most with Drone Peptide Technology. Harnessing a powerful blend of Padina Pavonica, Chlorella and Wild Indigo Oligosaccharides, Pro-Collagen Overnight Matrix’s revolutionary formula creates a protective matrix to seal in hydration and works throughout the night to help restore the natural balance to stressed-looking skin. 

Cristin Cooper_ELEMIS_Pro_Collagen_Collection

Pro-Collagen Rose Hydro-Mist // I love a hydro-mist and I love this one especially!! This hydration mist delivers the results of a fast-acting serum through a mist. Organic Rose Hydrolat softens and soothes the skin from dehydration, whilst Padina Pavonica, hydrating Mediterranean algae, helps to support the skin’s moisture barrier for a smoother-looking complexion. It is clinically proven to deliver instant and long-term hydration, the super-fine mist expertly sets and refreshes makeup for a luminous look.

ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Insta-Smooth Primer

Pro-Collagen Insta-Smooth Primer // I’ve been wearing this anti-ageing primer and have been amazed at how well it works. I am picky about my primers and I have several that perform well under makeup, but none that does so while delivering the quality skincare ingredients that this one does. It’s formulated with Cryo-Firming Complex, Italian Glacial Water and Padina Pavonica, the hybrid formula leaves the skin feeling quenched with hydration whilst delivering an immediate and long-lasting tightening effect for firmer-looking skin. It’s a cooling primer and works to minimize pores and blur the look of find lines as it preps your face for makeup. 

Pro-Collagen Advanced Eye Treatment // Another one of my favorite ELEMIS products!! This serum firms, smooths and hydrates your delicate eye area. Amino acids, the building blocks of proteins that are key for healthy cell development, work alongside blue flower linseed, a plant rich in protein, minerals and the essential fatty acid omega-9. Along with the other products in this line, this Pro-Collagen Advanced Eye Treatment also contains the Mediterranean algae, Padina Pavonica. I’ve been using this morning and night under my eye cream. It’s always great to have an eye serum that you use before eye creams. Since serums are a finer consistency they can really seep into those fine lines and wrinkles. After you apply the serum, then you can apply an eye cream for an added benefit! And remember! You always need to gently pat any products around your eye area with your ring finger to keep from stretching the skin!
