Why I Love Using a Cleansing Balm to Wash My Face

Using Elemis Cleansing Balm to Wash my Face.

As someone with combination and acne-prone skin, I am always on the hunt for hydrating skin care that won’t break me out during the winter months. When we went skiing earlier this year I took ELEMIS’ best-selling product, the Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm with me as a makeup remover and cleanser in one. It is a great addition to your skincare routine, especially if you are someone who likes the least amount of steps possible. This 3-in-1 product nourishes as a balm, easily removes makeup as a cleansing oil and hydrates as a cleansing milk. It is also the only cleansing balm I have ever used that doesn’t break me out! If you are someone who has dry skin or combination skin that needs a little extra hydration in the winter, you will want to try this product!

I personally love the way ELEMIS’ products smell but if you like unscented skin care then you will want to try their brand new, limited-edition Pro-Collagen Naked Cleansing Balm as it is completely unscented! They also have the Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm if you like the rose scent. Here are a few more of my favorite ELEMIS products that are great for dry or dehydrated skin and you can get 20% off of all of them with code CRISTIN20!!

Cleansing Balm

Pro-Collagen Eye Revive Mask  // If your under eyes tend to get dry then this 3-in-1 eye mask is for you! It’s an overnight mask, a hydrating under eye primer and a moisturizing balm that you can use to soothe your skin throughout the day! It is formulated with Flash Filler Hyaluronic Acid, wrinkle-reducing Watermelon Snow Algae and antioxidant-rich Bush Clover to hydrate and reduce signs of aging. 

Pro-Collagen Marine Oil // I recently got a chemical peel and have been slathering this oil all over my face day and night. It hydrates as it works to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I love the smell, the hydration it gives me and the fact that it doesn’t break me out! 

Pro-Collagen Marine Cream // This is my #1 recommended ELEMIS product and the best daily moisturizer. 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.

Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream // Another wonderful moisturizer from ELEMIS’ Pro-Collagen, Anti-Aging collection is this clinically proven night cream that hydrates with sesame and avocado oils!

Pro-Collagen Overnight Matrix // This is a newer product to me, but I have been impressed with the next morning’s results. It’s an excellent choice for dry skin because Pro-Collagen Overnight Matrix’s revolutionary formula creates a protective matrix to seal in hydration and works throughout the night!

Pro-Collagen Rose Hydro-Mist // I love a hydro-mist and I love this one especially!! I’ve been spraying it on my face throughout the day whenever my skin feels dry. It is clinically proven to deliver instant and long-term hydration, the super-fine mist expertly sets and refreshes makeup for a luminous look.

Pro-Collagen Insta-Smooth Primer // If your skin gets dry throughout the day, I highly recommend this primer as it is specifically formulated to deliver hydration while also creating a tightening effect for firmer-looking skin. It’s a cooling primer that feels great on and works to minimize pores and blur the look of fine lines as it preps your face for makeup.
