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 Rose Cleansing Balm
The anti-wrinkle cream for very dry skin
It’s no secret that Elemis Pro-Collagen cleansing balms are the brand’s most treasured product. This version, with a luscious and extra-rich texture, retains the benefits of the original formula while infused with rose to provide a spa-like experience. Powering this transformative texture, from balm to oil and finally a milk, is a fine-tuned combination of moisture boosting marine algae, Padina pavonica, and elderberry oil. Apply this cleansing balm every evening to start your night routine, and experience it for yourself: it soothes and calms your senses while you cleanse and remove all makeup, and the skin stays comfortable and ready to the following skincare.
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 Day Cream
The radiance-boosting cream for dull skin
If you’ve been struggling with a dull, lackluster complexion that looks and feels a little worse for wear, try a moisturizer with the same ambition as you: to have radiant skin. The Elemis Superfood Day Cream provides your skin with the benefits of multiple antioxidant-rich superfoods (including matcha and goji berry) in every single drop. With daily use, this nutrient-rich but remarkable lightweight cream 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 Peptide4 Antioxidant Hydra-Serum
The “urban shield” in a serum
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! This serum has been specially formulated to help the skin resist the damaging effects of environmental stressors. The formula harnesses the properties of Indian gooseberry, which is naturally an antioxidant, to fortifie the skin’s natural defenses; meanwhile, saffron flower and lotus flower milk provide a calming effect, and Peptide4 supports the skin’s own “synchronized internal clock”. The lightweight, serum 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 Peel & Reset brings you smoother skin with only two applications a week, through the combined action of phytic, ellagic and mandelic acids with Tri-Enzyme Technology. Because it’s an enzyme exfoliant (or enzymatic exfoliant, you name it!), this peel 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 Pro-Collagen Hydra-Gel Eye Masks
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 Pro-Collagen Hydra-Gel Eye Masks. Designed specifically to refresh and revitalize the eye contour, this hydrating eye mask features an antioxidant-rich combination of marine actives and hydrating hyaluronic acid. Together, these ingredients target the appearance of dehydration and dullness in order to plump up your eye contour and brighten up your look.
