HUGE Elemis Haul

Elemis Haul
 It's no secret that I'm a complete Elemis junkie. When it comes to skincare products you get what you pay for and Elemis really is the crème de la crème of luxurious face and body products!
Elemis Skin Nourishing Secrets Collection
The first item I picked up was the Skin Nourishing Secrets Collection which was from Elemis fabulous, and bargainous, Christmas range. I brought this mainly because I LOVE the Skin Nourishing Milk Bath and the fact that the Skin Nourishing Body Scrub came with it was just a bonus! I brought the Milk Bath for my Mum last year for Mother's Day which I instantly regretted not keeping for myself as it feels and smells divine, I did sneak a bit of this at times but I got caught haha. This is a perfect treatment for dry skin, especially as I fake tan often your skin can get particularly on the parched side! I apply 1 to 2 cap fulls to my bath and then use it as a body moisturiser as well when I'm not using my Elemis Frangipani Oil (review here) You can use this as an aftersun product, on Psoriasis, Eczema and Dermatitis. You can also use this on babies as it really is that gentle! This makes my skin feel so hydrated and soft, not to mention the lovely smell which lingers on your body.

I wouldn't have picked up the Skin Nourishing Body Scrub alone as you most likely know I'm loving my Elemis Frangipani Body Scrub (review here) but this combined with the Milk Bath really works wonders! It has small natural exfoliators of rice and bamboo which gently polish away any dead skin cells whilst sweet almond, macadamia and wheat germ oils nourish, soften and condition. My skin feels as smooth as a babies bum when I use this fab product weekly! 
Elemis Resurfacing Cleanse Duo
The next product which I just had to get was the Resurfacing Cleanse Duo which was one of Elemis New Year offers. I brought this purely because I hadn't seen one of my besties for a month or so and when I saw her, her skin looked FLAWLESS! She puts all the credit to such an amazing complexion down to the Tri-Enzyme facial wash so I had to try it out for myself right? Using this facial wash daily will deeply cleanse my skin to reveal a much smoother, refined and radiant complexion whilst sloughing away dead skin cells. I love the texture and smell of this product, even if I didn't like it I would still use it as I've seen how great the results are! I also love how this comes with an Apricot Toner which smells as delicious as it sounds (can you tell I like to smell my products?) and a minature Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm which is definitely in my top 3 products of life!
Elemis White Flowers Eye And Lip Make-Up Remover
Anyone who knows me or has read my blog for a little while now knows that when it comes to applying mascara I don't hold back - the more the better! (Although spidery eyelashes are not the one but you get my drift..) This removes all mascara including waterproof, we all know how much of a bugger that can be to get off, whilst conditioning and hydrating the lashes. It's also safe for contact lense wearers and sensitive eyes as it soothes the eye contour. This is also amazing at remove any stubborn lipstick!
Elemis Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser
After I used all of my beloved Cleansing Balm (review here) I decided to purchase a different cleanser which was the Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser. I will go back to the Cleansing Balm once I've finished this as I loved it soooo much but I like to change my cleanser every time I finish the pot so my skin doesn't get used to it. Anyhoo, as I've said before anything with the word Radiance on the packaging I'm a huge sucker for so as I was searching for a new cleanser of course I choose this one! This has a fairly thick consistency to it, I would say imagine the feel and thickness of Sudocrem this is fairly similar but obviously much much better. It's amazing at removing any heavy make up as well as mascara, it has deeply cleansing properties which deliver exceptionally clean and clear skin after which feels beautiful as well as reduces any high colour. You can also use this as a mask, once you've cleansed your skin and removed any make up I then reapply this and leave for around 5 minutes for a quick hydration boost.
Elemis Skin Buff
Of all the exfoliators I have tried and used this one has hands down got to be the winner! It's really quite gritty so you feel like you're giving your skin a good ole scrub but not overly so that you're damaging your skin or that your face is bright red afterwards. This smoothes away any rough and dry textured skin to help stimulate the regeneration of new cells. After using this my skin looks sooo clear and like all Elemis products feels super duper soft! It's really important that you use a facial scrub (one that's actually meant for you face and not your body) in your weekly routine. If you don't then all the decadent products you put on your skin will just get absorbed by all the dead skin cells that are not being removed which is pointless for your time and moolah!
Elemis Fruit Active Rejuvenating Mask
As I'm forever on the hunt for a glowing complexion this mask was recommend to me by an Elemis consultant, she said that this was known as a 'pre-party mask' for all the ladies like myself who want the wow factor and that it did! The first time of using this mask my skin looked uh-may-zing, all my pores were much more refined and my skin literally looked like it was glowing! It was so radiant and beautiful to touch, it looked as wonderful as it first did for days after too!
Elemis Absolute Eye Mask
I feel that most people neglect their eye area, but it's really important to use a separate mask and eye cream/serum as the skin around your eye contour is much thinner and needs different results than the rest of your face. This mask helps to brighten around the eye area and reduces dark circles and any puffiness. This helps to rehydrate and is perfect for contact lense wearers, people who stare at computers all day and tired eyes from long periods of driving - sums me up in one!
Elemis Absolute Eye Serum
For an eye moisturiser I massively prefer a serum to a cream as it gets absorbed much quicker and easier into your skin. This has similar results to the mask above and they work exceptionally well together!
Elemis Visible Brilliance
I'm sure most of you will be thinking by now strewth girl you're obsessed with skin radiance haha! I am in love with this serum as it delivers the amazing results I want for my skin. I use this under my moisturiser day and night for the best results it can give. This brightens my skin tone with instant luminosity and gives a nice healthy glow. No wonder they call this the perfect instant beauty flash booster!
Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream
If you haven't heard of the ever so famous Pro-Collagen Marine Cream you're missing out! This is one of Elemis best sellers with one being sold every minute across the world with the likes of Emma Bunton among many other celebs loving it. This has been clinically proven to reduce the depth of wrinkles and fine lines in 15 days, not that you need it at 21 but hey may as well start early! This helps hydrate and moisturises all skin types and is extremely rich in anti-oxidants. It increases cell renewal, firmness and elasticity - I brought another of these for my Mum and she can really notice a difference in the overall look and texture of her skin. For a anti-aging product most people would expect this to be a real thick, gloopy consistency when in actual fact is one of the softest, light weight moisturisers I've felt! If you're looking for the perfect gift for someone who is worried about aging this is a miracle in a tub! 
Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm
This is in my top 3 products EVER! I use this as a radiance booster along with my Visible Brilliance and also as a make up primer - this keeps it on ALL day! I sometimes also use this as a light moisturiser in place of the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream. This is a hybrid moisturiser which protects against moisture loss and hydrates the skin along with other skin flattering qualities hence that beautiful word radiance ;)
