product review - elemis fresh skin

15/02/2013


elemis peachy perfect gentle face wash - £12* (buy here)
elemis dreamy sleep night-time moisturiser - £22* (buy here)

i know i'm not the ripest banana in the fruit basket (what a pathetic metaphor), but i am always looking to extend my knowledge on skincare products so i'm using the best possible products for me. obviously i was aware that certain skincare brands have products specifically aimed at mature skin but i didn't know that it was available for younger skin too! elemis have recently introduced freshskin, a new range of products especially designed for the needs of a younger skin. ten products are available between the prices of £8-£22, allowing young skin to receive the best possible care and keep it youthful for longer.

if you read my january glossybox post (here) you will know that one of the five products included was the elemis freshskin exfoliating face wash, which i was really excited to use. i've found it to be the best exfoliator for my skin and it has greatly improved its appearance. so when the lovely jennie from elemis e-mailed me asking if i'd like to try a couple of the products how could i possibly pass it up?! i can safely say hand on heart that i have thoroughly enjoyed using these products and seeing the improvements they have made to my skin. although i don't really like the smell of the face wash; as it doesn't smell of peaches in my opinion, i've found it to be extremely moisturising and i see no more redness or irritation after i've wiped my face. even though i would consider the night moisturiser to be more of a luxury purchase i do really like it. previously i was using my sample size REN revitalising night cream, but this has definitely replaced it. it's not thick, just the perfect consistency to put all over your face and neck before going to sleep and still feel like your skin can breathe. i feel like my skin looks so much brighter and smoother on a morning since using this. if you are in your teens or early twenties i cannot recommend this range enough.

if you aren't willing to splurge on full size products why don't you try the freshskin discovery kit? the fresh start discovery kit contains a mini peachy perfect gentle face wash 30ml, softly softly daily moisturiser 15ml, deep clean purifying face mask 3 x 7ml, skin glow exfoliating face wash 30ml and dreamy sleep night-time moisturiser 15ml for just £19.90. the freshskin range can be found in superdrug stores around the UK too.

although my caseapp winner has been named you can get 20% off your own personalised
iphone case with the code 'charissam' up until the 28 of february, don't miss out!

  3. What a wonderful idea. I always worry Im using products for my skin that I do not necessarily need to be using yet, so something like this designed specially for younger skin is lovely. I'm actually really considering buying the samples kit to try, the products look and sounds gorgeous! xx
