Holy Grail Day Moisturizer
Let me just start off by saying that Elemis is my favorite luxury skincare brand. Their products work!!! I've just started using this for a few days, and it's already my favorite daytime SPF moisturizer. This day cream not only protects the skin from the rays of the sun, but it's main purpose is to smooth the skin. This moisturizer gently exfoliates my skin with it's non harsh chemicals like Lactic acid and enzymes. They use a unique skincare technology called Tri-enzymes that slowly and exfoliates the skin. It helps with cell turnover and exfoliates the skin overtime which makes this product perfect for sensitive skin. This is perfect for any one struggling with acne, uneven skin tone, dull skin and texture; also perfect for all skin types. Elemis also has a night cream of this moisurizer; which I'll be purchasing sometime in the future. My face literally glows 😍 and feels softer when I apply this 😊. This product is quite pricey retailing at $125, but I got it on sale from BoxyCharm for $24. #elemis #skincare #skincarereview #skincareblogger #skincarejunkie #moisturizer #spf #skincarecommunity #iloveskincare #skincare
Here’s a few favorites I’ve been loving First Aid Beauty cleanser I tested this one with my ph reader & it read as a 5.4 which is amazing! I also emailed them to be sure I calibrated right & they said it was between a 5-6 👏🏻 this cleanser gets me clean & doesn’t make me feel dry at all. My skin just feels soft & clean when I’m done. Elemis day cream sunscreen spf 50 absolutely in love with this white truffle goodness. Currently testing the Atrue Black Tea fermentation essence. I can’t really tell if it’s doing anything as of yet but I’m hanging in there with it. And Drunk Elephant baby Facial for a little pink.
Here are my October Favorites. These were in heavy rotation. Mamonde - Micro Deep Cleansing Foam Mamonde - Hydrating Beauty Water Rose MISSHA - Essence Sun SPF 45 PA+++ PEACH & LILY - Wild Dew Treatment Essence FILORGA - Time-Filler Absolute Wrinkle Correction Cream FILORGA - OPTIM-EYES e.l.f. - Keep Your Balance Toner N°7 - Advanced Retinol 1.5% Complex Night Concentrate Sulwhasoo - Concentrated Ginseng Renewing CreamELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Marine Cream SPF 30 TruSkin - Vitamin C Serum VERSED - DEW POINT Moisturizing Gel-Cream VERSED - VACATION EYES Brightening Eye Gel TruSkin Rentinol 2.5% I try to have a few products alternate and these are working wonders. See any goodies?!?!?🥰
My Thoughts on LUXURY SKINCARE 💸✨ Worth it? p.2
Check out part 1 if you haven’t already! Elemis. I previously worked at a PR firm that represented the brand so I got a lot of free product to try but this is 100% my opinion. - ELEMIS - Superfood Facial Oil I love this facial oil- it locks in all of the products I used before without slipping around everywhere. It’s also deeply nourishing! - ELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Marine Cream Ultra-Rich I actually really like this super moisturizing face cream! It’s a little more emollient and thick compared to their original Pro-Collagen Marine Cream but still something I can use, with my combination skin. - ELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream I liked this formula but I’m not sure I see much of a difference in result from this compared to their original Pro-Collagen Marine Cream. The texture is a little more pudding and jelly like which I don’t mind but I’d rather just get their other face creams. - ELEMIS - Peptide4 Adaptive Day Cream This is a great formula for oilier/combination skin because it’s not a cream that leaves your skin dewy. It has more of a satin matte finish while still hydrating and moisturizing the skin with peptides. - ELEMIS - Peptide4 Plumping Pillow Facial I don’t really like this product because I just don’t find it does much for my skin. It’s a super lightweight gel texture but my skin doesn’t look and feel extra plumped when I wake up. I’d rather just use their Ultra-Rich Pro-Collagen Marine Cream. - ELEMIS - Ultra Smart Pro-Collagen Eye Treatment Duo This is crazy expensive and meant for anti-aging so I gave this set to my mom and she loves it. There’s a Day Cream and Night Balm duo with a metal rollerball like tool for application. She says it’s great for de-puffing and is super moisturizing. - ELEMIS - Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Pads I love these facial pads!!! They’re physically gentle on the skin but the ingredients help to exfoliate the skin without any irritation. Whenever I have a bit of texture, I’ll swipe these on before applying my other face products and they help tremendously!
My Thoughts on LUXURY SKINCARE 💸✨ Worth it? p.1
First of all skincare that’s a luxury to me may not be a luxury to you. I honestly think that it’s not the product brand or claims that make it a luxury, but the science, thought and ingredients behind it. We all have our own budgets and limits on how much we’re willing to spend so with everything I say on this subject, take it with a grain of salt! Skin Ceuticals. This is probably my favorite skincare brand- there’s so much research and science behind each product. My favorites include: - SKINCEUTICALS - Hydrating B5 Gel a super lightweight, but extremely hydrating and skin-plumping serum full of Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin B5 - SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum a potent anti-oxidant serum with Vitamins C & E, Ferulic Acid & L-Ascorbic Acid to help treat hyper-pigmentation and brighten the skin - SKINCEUTICALS - Retinol 0.3 a low percentage retinol for speeding up cell turnover without any irritation or overly drying the skin - SKINCEUTICALS - Physical Fusion Uv Defense SPF 50 a super thin serum formula with high SPF to protect your skin from the sun - no white cast! Drunk Elephant. Their products are expensive and get hyped up A LOT (which sometimes makes me not want to try them?), but I like that their products are usually centered around one main ingredient. I’ve tried: - DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum which is a nice glycolic serum that helps to smooth and exfoliate the skin but I’ve tried other glycolic products like ALPHA-H - Micro Super Scrub with 12% Glycolic Acid which I find more effective! - DRUNK ELEPHANT - D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Sunshine Drops just a bronze-colored serum but I don’t find anything too special about it or its ingredients. I fell for the “anti-pollution” claim- never again! Fresh. I love some and don’t love some. I like their whole “natural” approach but I find some of their formulas not effective on my skin at all. - fresh - Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence I LOVE this facial treatment. I use it as an essence, as it contains Lactic Acid, to help gently brighten & smooth the skin. - fresh - Lotus Anti-Aging Night Moisturizer This is super moisturizing night cream that really plumps up my skin overnight so I wake up to glowy, bouncy skin! - fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Toner This is so disappointing compared to their Black Tea Facial Treatment. It does nothing to hydrate- just feels like overpriced rose water. - fresh - Rose & Hyaluronic Acid Deep Hydration Moisturizer I think the rose in the formula irritates my skin and turns it a little pink. I’ve just been using it as a body cream so I it doesn’t go to waste! Elemis- check out part 2!

My skincare obsession products atm. All from a natural plant based, skincare brand from the UK...Elemis! 😍 They're luxury skincare, so cost of some items are expensive.. not gonna lie, but wow, they're so worth it!😂If I was rich, I'd just buy everything they have! . 👀Elemis Pro Definition Eye and Lip Contour Cream🌱(pictured)feels like pure silk on your skin! It comes in a beautiful light gold, pump bottle, with a lil plug on it. It only takes a lil of this product(1or2 pumps works well, so it will last u a while)It's enriched with firming&smoothing plant stem cells. Helps fine lines & signs of aging around eyes & lips. . 🌊Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream 💦 It is heavenly cream in a tub! It is my fav skin item rn!! A great moisturizer, with anti-aging benefits. Lovely smell. Reduces fine lines/wrinkles & improves firmness. My makeup even applies better when I use it. My skin has never looked better! . 🍃Elemis Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm🚿(pictured) is wonderful! Smells fantastic, like very natural and outdoorsy. It melts away your makeup like a dream, while also promoting collagen, helping with signs of aging. Can also be used as a mask, if you leave it on a bit, before washing it off. . 🌿Elemis Superfood🌱 line's great too!(Superfood Facial Wash pictured)It's a pre-biotic gel cleanser. Rich in nutrients, smells so much like nature in a bottle! Great for your skin & gentle. I love this! .
Do you have hidden gems on your skincare stash? I have 3 overnight products that do their magic while I sleep.✨ Today I want to talk about the elemis Pro-Collagen Overnight Matrix 🤩 Due to my hormonal problems, sleeping is an issue for me, I rarely sleep very deeply. A bit annoying when you have an important event the next day and you want to look your best. Thanks to elemis this Overnight moisturiser/treatment comes in handy when I want to look my best, it really replenishes the skin as it claims. Lack of sleep can take away for natural firmness of skin (at least for me), but this ‘gives back’ my firmness, hydration and takes the stressed bits in exchange. Good deal, I’d say! 😄 What’s in it? Microalage (great anti-inflammatory properties), Padina Pavonica, a Mediterranean algae that claims to have anti-ageing benefits (new ingredient to me) and the Drone Peptide Technology ( drone technology is hugely popular in skincare now). You might wonder what a drone technology in skincare is? Well, is basically a delivery system that targets specific skin concerns. In this instance, the Drone Peptide Technology is designed to boost your skin’s natural radiance, target those nasty wrinkles and lines and provide hydration. For best results the cream has to be used for a longer period of time. Will be my go to in for the next week (has been many days prior) as I am off actives (getting ready for holiday). I don’t have wrinkles, but for this particular product, I think it was the first time I have seen 100% positive feedback (tested in vivo). The texture is beautiful, creamy, borderline- gel, light and absorbs completely into the skin. What else can I say other than I absolutely love it? 😄 However this is on the pricer side and definitely something I could not afford to buy on regular basis. But I am happy I was able to try it for myself. Disclaimer: I took the picture a while ago after a few uses, as I like to take pics with ‘fresh’ texture. Product was tested for much longer. Also a little goes long way.
ELEMIS-Pro-Collagen Marine Cream
Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream is life! Its so amazing and like pure silk on your face. White, creamy, velvety textured goodness...smells like a spa, and even makes your face feel as if you've just left the spa! I love how they're all natural too.🌿 Their products do work. Esp this one. Theres a reason it's loved by so many. Results tell all. And it hasn't broke out my combo/sensitive skin.(Like some moisturizers do.)Its truly magic in a tub! I'm serious when I say this is the best antiwrinkle moisturizer I've ever tried! Been using it for a couple months now, and my skin has never looked better! Like turning back hands of time. Fine lines have improved, complexion is clear&radiant, keeps me hydrated all day, and even serves as a good base for my makeup to apply better, and last longer. Best anti-aging cream!
ELEMIS-Pro-Collagen Marine Cream
This is my absolute favourite moisturiser to use when wearing make up. ♥️ lamer- The Moisturising Matte Lotion. MY RESULTS: ♥️ I’ve been using this moisturiser for 9 months now and I’m still on the same bottle, so although it’s expensive I’ve had almost a years use from it. 1 pump pressed between your hands and patted over your face, neck and chest is all that’s needed to provide the benefits. ♥️ I have normal/combo skin but when I wear make up I can lead more towards an oily T Zone for some reason but when using this it acts as the perfect base for make up, it keeps my skin oil free the whole day. ♥️ Normally matte moisturisers don’t provide enough hydration for me and the more I use a moisturiser the more dehydrated my skin becomes, but this doesn’t do that at all, it really works to hydrate your skin, while keeping it matte. ♥️ It’s quite a thin consistency which makes it great for patting into skin rather than rubbing in. I don’t like rubbing creams because it can make my cheeks really red. ♥️ When using this it makes my skin look so flawless it’s like a blurring primer has been added. It feels silky smooth and with each use I found that it reduced the look of fine lines around my eyes. .
