Elemis launches new freshskin range for younger skin
Elemis is due to launch a new skincare range for younger skin next month (mid-April). I popped down to their press event this week to take a look…
I love the range, it looks fantastic-the packaging is young and fun in clear, white and bright pink- and the products are light, non-greasy and feel great on the skin. Elemis is a British brand and I like to support British brands (and designers!) where possible.
I’m slightly older than the target market of 18-24, but I would buy the range because I can’t stand heavy moisturisers that just sit on the skin, so this collection really appeals. I’ve been trailing the products at home for the last few days, here are my thoughts…
The Peachy Perfect Facewash is great for everyday use, it really cleans my face and removes all the make-up, including eye, leaving my skin feeling fresh and clean. I’m definitely a facewash person, I like my skin to really feel like it’s been scrubbed clean.
The Skin Glow Exfoliating Facewash smells gorgeous, containing cherry powder and jojoba beads. The beads are large enough to feel like it’s exfoliating the skin but the overall texture is not too rough, so again it’s great for every day use.
The Softly Softly Daily Moisturiser is light and soaks into the skin immediately, so great if you’re in a hurry and need to put your make-up on straight after! It comes out of the pump spray almost like a foam, but as you rub it on to the face it smoothes into a cream. Enriched with seaweed extract, rosehip oil and sweet almond it’s softening but also hydrating.
The Dreamy Sleep Night-Time Moisturiser again comes out in a foam-like consistency, but as you smooth on to the face it creates a richer cream which feels amazing. With a mixture of vitamins A, C and E, blackburrent seed oil and barley extract, it’s intensely hydrating but also smells gorgeous. A relaxing scent of lavender, it is perfect to put on just before bed!
The Tired Eyes Soothing Eye Rescue again just melts into the skin due to its light formula. It claims to help reduce puffiness and dark circles..so great for those late nights!
I’m a sucker for lip balms as I rarely wear lipstick and I LOVE this one. Loving Lips Quenching Lip Balm has a refreshing scent of peppermint and is enriched with passionflower oil, sweet almond and vitamin E and in keeping with the rest of the range is incredible moisturising without being greasy.
Elemis has also brought out a range of cleansing wipes for the first time which are great if you’re in a hurry. I’m not a fan of make-up wipes, but I always take a pack with me on holiday because they’re perfect to refresh your face after a hot day on the beach.
The idea behind the launch of Elemis’ new freshskin range is to introduce younger skin to an easy, effective skincare routine. For me, I love the range because it is fresh, light, looks great and does the job.
