I’m a great lover of Elemis skincare. One of my favourite spas use their products and I always leave with an arm full of products or sets! At Christmas Elemis have some stunning sets which are incredibly well priced for what you get. It’s a great way to sample more products for a smaller outlay. Sometimes even for full-size items it works out better value for money to buy as part of a set rather than alone!
Their gift sets are always so beautifully presented. One of the gifts I picked includes a gorgeous gold cosmetics bag. I’d actually say that Elemis sets are probably some of my all time favourites. After much deliberation at the Spa I finally settled on two sets. The Adventuress set and the Brilliantly Beautiful set.
The Adventuress Gift Set
This is a really beautiful set which will make an amazing gift for any skincare junkie, whether that be for someone you know, or yourself, I fully support gifting to ourselves. All of the items despite being miniature sizes I feel are quite generous. They will be perfect to pack and travel with, and that gold bag though! It’s absolutely stunning! How could I not get this?! I’m forever being told that I’m like a magpie because I’m without fail drawn to pretty shiny and sparkly things.
This set has products to pamper from head to toe. It looks so glamorous and offers the gift of luxury to the receiver. Elemis have hand-picked 6 products from across their skincare and bath and body ranges, including some of their best-selling products. Gifts like this offer a great opportunity to sample a variety of items without committing to purchasing full-size items.
The products included in The Adventuress are:
Smart Cleanse Micellar Water (50ml)
Elemis have formulated this Micellar Water with natural surfactants from Rosehip Seed Oil, Apple Amino Acids and Soapnut. It gently removes all traces of makeup and dirt from the skin and excess sebum, whilst organic English rose water soothes the skin leaving a clear, rejuvenated complexion.
Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser 30ml
An award winning best seller that provides moisture to hydrate the skin while delivering a deep cleanse. It dissolves makeup and grime to reveal a brightened, hydrated appearance. Formulated with a blend of plant extracts, white beeswax and Shea butter all work together to reduce signs of ageing and provide vital nourishment to the skin.
White Flowers Eye & Lip Make-Up Remover (28ml)
This product gently cleanses the delicate eye and lip area to remove all traces of makeup, even stubborn waterproof mascara. It is enriched with White Peony Extract, Vitamin B5 and White Tea to leave the skin hydrated and refreshed while conditioning the lashes.
Pro-Collagen Ultra Rich Marine Day Cream (30ml)
One of Elemis’ best sellers, their Pro-Collagen Marine Cream range is hugely popular. It is enriched with Mediterranean Alge and Padina Pavonica to improve skins elasticity and overall firmness while also fighting first signs of ageing. I have tried the regular Marine Cream and I really enjoyed it so I’m keen to see how the rich cream works for me.
Frangipani Monoi Shower Cream (50ml)
Already being a fan of the Body oil I am excited to see the shower cream included in this set. The perfect start to any pamper routine is with an indulgent bath. This delightfully scented shower cream will be the ideal accompaniment to take with you.
Frangipani Monoi Body Oil (35ml)
I already have the full-size of this and I love it. It smells lovely and feels so nourishing on my skin. I also double up and use this as a hair mask too, it makes it feel so healthy and soft after. You really can use this from head to toe. It has been formulated with Frangipani Flower and coconut oil giving it an uplifting scent. One of my favourites from Elemis.
What attracted me to this set was that included is a full-size bottle of their much-loved Superfood Facial Oil. I’d heard rave reviews and was keen to try it for myself. I tried the tester oil on my face and I was so impressed by how unlike an oil it actually felt. It didn’t make my skin greasy or leave it resembling an oil slick. The product was absorbed into my skin revealing a healthy, dewy radiance. It was as simple as that, I was sold.
The oil alone costs £57, and the set cost £65 for two generously sized additional products, it made perfect sense to get the set. The overall contents of the set has been valued at £98 so you really are making quite a saving if you will actually use all of the products.
Within the Brilliantly Beautiful Set you receive:
Superfood Facial Oil (15ml)
A natural blend of superfoods to deeply nourish and hydrate the skin. It is an antioxidant with omega rich broccoli, flax seed and daikon radish which to deliver a powerhouse of vitamins, superfood and hydration to the skin. This is a lightweight, none greasy oil which is easily absorbed to leave you with a healthy, radiant glow.
Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser (200ml)
This is the same cleanser I have written about in the section about from The Adventuress gift set. I won’t bore you with a repetition. You also get a face cloth to use with this cleanser included in the set which I feel is a nice touch.
Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm (30ml)
This is a light weight daily moisturiser which also acts as a primer for makeup to be applied directly over top. This is the introductory level anti-ageing moisturiser to help combat early signs of ageing while brightening the skin. It has been formulated with a powerful vitamin complex, it protects against moisture loss ensure the skin remains hydrated.
I have tried the Flash Balm which is essentially a moisturiser and I do really like it, so I knew I’d definitely be able to make use of that. It also doubles up as a primer too, you can’t beat a multifunctional beauty product. It has been formulated with purple orchid, noni and açai to help protect the skin against the onset of early signs of ageing. It also prevents moisture from being lost helping us maintain healthy, hydrated skin.
I’m really excited to try the cleanser as it promises to leave the skin cleansed with a radiant, youthful appearance. If it does what it says I should be as impressed as I have been with the oil. It has been formulated with skin protecting moringa seed peptide, balancing green burdock, and antioxidant rich noni and assai fruits which together help protect the skin from daily pollutants.
