Treat Your Skin – Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm

elemis pro collagen cleanser

Hello my loves!

Now I’m a huge Elemis fan, so far to say it’s probably is the favourite product range I’ve ever worked with in my time as a Spa and Beauty Therapist and their Pro-Collagen Cleanser is easily in my top 3 products of theirs.

I was first introduced to the product when it first launched in Spa Treatments and was hooked from the get go.

I prefer not to use it as an everyday cleanser as I do find it can be a bit too rich for my skin, but when I want a proper pamper or an at home facial it works just the treat.

I just warm into the palms and then massage over the face, neck with light circular massage movements then remove it with a warm cotton cloth. Another great thing about this cleanser is that you can also use it as a mask, just massage it over your face a you would when cleansing but leave it on for 10 minutes before gently removing. I love doing this when in the bath as it smells heavenly, perfect for winding down before bed.

Now it is part of their Pro Collagen range which contains some amazing ingredients including Padina Pavonica which is a unique Mediterranean algae with proven outstanding anti-ageing benefits.  It has been shown that it stimulates the synthesis of glycosaminoglycan’s (GAGs), responsible for the moisturisation, firmness and elasticity of the skin. Basically they found this algae on part of a ship wreckage and noticed that it had preserved it in really good condition compared to other parts where the algae was not present. It’s thing like this that make being a beauty therapist really interesting, I love when you find out the background behind the products your using for treatments.

Have you tried this cleanser? If, not what are your go to products for giving your skin a treat?

THE BODY SHOP CAMOMILE CLEANSING BUTTER REVIEW

For Christmas I received this Cleansing butter that I was lusting for, after reading brilliant reviews and the concept reminding so much of higher end products, like the Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm. I was delighted to see this and I thought I ought to do a review on it..

The Cleansing butter is Camomile scented, which is very faint but nevertheless quite relaxing. Scented products are a No No when it comes to skincare , but then unscented products quite frankly stink, so this is a great in-between! The butter is a solid balm consistency but only takes a rub between your fingertips to create an oil/butter. From here, I spread the butter all over my palms and melt away my make up. Using massaging motions the oil dissolves the make up and leaves a yucky residue on the surface of your skin , which you then rinse off with water or a flannel. You are left which soft, buttery (see what I did there) skin that feels deeply cleansed and just damn clean.

I use this on the days where I have energy  to keep my eyes open to do skincare  (other days I just use Micellar Water and a cotton pad). Every time I do use it, my skin looks and feel lovely. At £12, it’s worth a try if you want something more for skincare . Plus, The Body Shop always have deals on so I’m sure you can get a couple bucks off if you are considering purchasing it.

Rating : 4/5 – I hate that I have to rinse it off, I’d much rather use a cotton pad because I’m so lazy! Also, I can imagine if you live in a hot country this would not last long…

Have you tried this product? What does your skincareroutine consist of?
