Top 8 Elemis Products
Elemis is known for its luscious cleansing balms and for its iconic anti-wrinkle collection, Pro-Collagen. However, there’s much more to the brand: from hydrating eye masks to revive your skin, to enzyme peels to buff your complexion, you’ll find plenty of new skincare essentials here.
Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream Ultra-Rich
The anti-wrinkle cream for very dry skin
It’s no secret that Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream is an icon of anti-aging care. This version, with a luscious and extra-rich texture, retains the anti-wrinkle benefits of the original while providing intense nourishment to dry skin. Powering this silky cream is a fine-tuned combination of anti-aging marine algae (Padina pavonica and Chlorella) and antioxidant-rich cocoa butter. Apply this cream every morning to previously cleansed skin, and experience it for yourself: fine lines grow less noticeable, and the skin stays comfortable and moisturized for up to 24 hours.
Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm
The cleansing balm that doubles as a face mask
We can’t really talk about Elemis without talking about this absolute bestseller, the Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm. Ideal for those of us who love the cleansing step of our skincare routine above all others, this cleansing balm is a true feast for the senses. Formulated with a luxurious blend of botanical oils and waxes, it melts away makeup and impurities, all the while leaving the skin feeling comfortable, smooth, and beautifully hydrated. Use it daily, as a cleansing balm, or weekly as a deeply soothing facial mask!
Elemis Superfood Facial Oil
The radiance-boosting oil for dull skin
If you’ve been struggling with a dull, lackluster complexion that looks and feels a little worse for wear, try a face oil. The award-winning Elemis Superfood Facial Oil provides your skin with the benefits of 9 antioxidant-rich superfoods (including, amusingly, broccoli) in every single drop. With daily use, this nutrient-rich but remarkable lightweight oil will help you restore the natural luminosity of your skin. Say goodbye to dull skin!
Elemis Frangipani Monoi Salt Glow
The gentle body scrub with a tropical fragrance
If there’s one thing this author will always recommend, it’s a good salt scrub. The Elemis Frangipani Monoi Salt Glow is truly remarkable: it’s got a surprisingly gentle texture, but that doesn’t make it any less effective in buffing away impurities and dead skin cells. The floral-fruity scent of frangipani, while subtle, will put you in the mood for a summer getaway, creating an escapist experience with each application.
Elemis S.O.S. Emergency Cream
The “urban shield” in a versatile gel texture
A busy day-to-day life, especially if it’s spent in an urban environment, subjects the skin to a series of aggressions–but fear not! The aptly named Elemis S.O.S. Emergency Cream has been specially formulated to help the skin resist the damaging effects of environmental stressors. The formula harnesses the properties of white willow bark, which is naturally rich in salicylic acid, to soothe the skin while preventing the appearance of blemishes; meanwhile, lavender provides a calming effect, and myrrh promotes skin regeneration. The lightweight, gel-based texture is suitable for different skin types–after all, a true “urban shield” should be for everyone.
Elemis Peptide4 Plumping Pillow Facial Hydrating Sleep Mask
The overnight spa treatment that works while you sleep
If you want to wake up with smooth and radiant skin, like you’ve just arrived from the spa, then this overnight mask may be exactly what you are looking for. The star ingredient of this formula, Peptide4, is a yeast peptide that helps support the skin’s own “internal clock”–in short, it works in tandem with your skin while you sleep. As your skin sets out to repair itself during the night, this gel mask will seal in moisture and helps the process along, allowing you to wake up with a beautifully refreshed and well-rested complexion.
Elemis Dynamic Resurfacing Gel Mask
The skin-smoothing enzymatic exfoliator
Uneven skin texture is a very common skin concern these days–fortunately, there are plenty of avenues for improvement. This Elemis Dynamic Resurfacing Gel Mask brings you smoother skin in just 10 minutes through the combined action of patented Tri-Enzyme Technology and papain, an enzyme extracted from papaya. Because it’s an enzyme exfoliant (or enzymatic exfoliant, you name it!), this mask breaks up the layer of dead cells on the surface of your skin, allowing you to emerge with a clearer, smoother, and more even complexion.
Elemis Absolute Eye Mask
The hydrating mask
Let’s be honest: what does your screen time look like these days? If your eye contour feels right and uncomfortable then you may need to dial it down a little; you may also want to look into the Elemis Absolute Eye Mask. Designed specifically to refresh and revitalize the eye contour, this hydrating eye mask features an antioxidant-rich combination of camellia oil and cornflower extract. Together, these two ingredients target the appearance of dehydration and dullness in order to plump up your eye contour and brighten up your look.
