Hello there! Happy Sunday!
Today I’m reviewing couple of skincare products by Elemis. These two products have won have many awards, and are bestselling products by the brand.
Elemis is an award winning British brand skincare specialist, used in professional spas and beauty salons, as well as British Airways Travel Spa at Heathrow Terminal 5. BA includes Elemis products in their infight grooming kits, I grabbed a few bags last time 😛
I’ve started using Elemis skincare when I needed to revamp my skincare routine, in preparation to my wedding little more than 2 years ago. Since then,  Elemis has been a staple in my day and night skincare routines. I’ve tried their facial creams,  shower gels, toner, cleansing balm and hand creams etc.

Onward to the review!

Pro-Collagen Marine Day Cream
Packaging
There are smaller sizes of this cream at 30ml, 50ml as well as the 100ml tubs.
There at two versions of the 100ml value tubs. I’ve bought the normal version, where the tub is frosted white plastic. They other one is the silver edition, it comes with a special edition silver pocket mirror. (I wouldn’t recommend getting the mega 100ml tub unless you’re sharing it with someone). It took me forever to finish this by myself!

Product and Formulation 
This cream has been scientifically proven to help with reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines with regular usage. It uses a combination of marine algae padins pavonics, rose and mimosa absolutes and ginkgo bilobs and liposomes. It will increase hydration and moisture to the skin.

Texture and Fragrance 
This day cream is like yogurt, very light, soft and creamy. It’s almost as light as lotion! Very easy to apply and easily absorbed into the skin. It does have a light fragrance to it, which some users might not too keen on.

Effectiveness
For me, I really do like and enjoying using this cream. This is suitable for my oily combination skin and it does not feel heavy nor greasy. It hydrates my skin and it helps to make it look radiant and healthy. Although I do divert and try other day creams, but if anything does fail I know I can always come back to this!

Price : £135 for 100ml (if you look out for offers, you can pick this up for approx £80)

Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream

Packaging
Elemis packaging is very uniform, basic, not made of glass but still luxurious looking. Fit for your vanity or bathroom shelves!

Product and Formulation
This night cream aims to help with improving skin suppleness, firmness and elasticity. It contains marine derived ingredients and gingko biloba which aims to protect your skin from free radicals.

Texture and Fragrance
The cream itself is like meringue, freshly whipped egg whites… If you bake you’ll know what I mean 😛 if you don’t bake, this cream is creamy and light. Not your standard night creams which are often heavier and oiler. It sinks into the skin with ease!
This is a fragranced product, although the scent is not strong it might still affect some users. For me, it smells lightly floral; I do like the scent and is very relaxing and calming.

Effectiveness
This cream has been advertised for matured skin and anyone who’s concern about ageing effects on the skin.
This is one of the better performing night cream for me. I’ve been using this night cream with the marine day cream. I notice the difference it made to my skin after few day’s usage. This was probably I wasn’t really looking after my skin too well at the time (almost 2 years back!)! But I do welcome the fresh radiant look, and my complexion looked and felt more firm.

Price: £60 for 30ml
