The absolute key to beautiful, clear skin is to make sure you get in to the daily habit of cleasning, toning and moisturizing with regular exfoliation and specific treatment for any blemishes or trouble spots.
I have been using the same products for a while, but recently I was sent a few samples from the new Freshskin range by Elemis to try and now I am a total convert! It is designed for teens through to girls in their early 20s. I love the packaging – even though it is for teens, it is still quite ‘grown up’ and sophisticated which I like. I love the colours, BUT I especially LOVE the thoughtful little beauty tips that are printed on the side of the boxes.
Let me tell you about the products I have tried…
Skin Glow Exfoliating Face Wash –
With a deep pore cleansing action, this devine smelling exfoliating facial wash leaves your skin feeling fresh and super smooth. It contains jojoba beads and cherry powder to gently polish and get rid of dead skin. Leaving your complexion brightened and more radiant. I have been using this every other day by gently massaging into wet skin and then rinsing thoroughly with warm water. You don’t need very much and so I think a tube will last a long time.
Deep Clean Purifying Face Mask – Using natural clays of goji berry extract and frankincense oil, this Deep Clean Purifying Face Mask helps rebalance your skin and bring out the impurities leaving your skin feeling soft and smooth. This thick face mask is very cool once applied and doesn’t irritate the skin in anyway but leaves it feeling refreshed. I ran myself a bath and just slathered this on and chilled. After 10 minutes, I rinsed it off and really felt like I had truly Fresh Skin! REMEMBER to always remove all traces of make-up before applying a face mask.
Magical Moisture Quenching Face Mask – This face mask is perfect if you are suffering from dry skin. With ingredients of white lupin, arctic cranberry seed oil and apple extract, this magical quenching face mask gives your skin an instant moisture boost leaving your skin looking radiant and feeling exceptionally soft. This has been especially useful lately with the miserable weather we have been having. The constantly cold wind and then the drying central heating plays havoc with your complexion.
Skin Clear Treatment Gel – This anti – blemish gel powerfully kills any blemishes without over drying the skin. Formulated with salicylic acid, zinc and vitamin A to cleanse clogged pores and helps prevent any unwanted blemishes in the future. I really feel it has helped to dramatically reduce a few breakouts that I have had lately.
How to Use: Before applying, make sure you’ve cleansed thoroughly and toned your face. Then dispense a small amount onto your fingertip and dab onto the affected area in the morning and at night. Wait for it to completely dry then apply moisturiser.
Skin Clear Mattifying Moisturiser – This Mattifying Moisturiser is specially formulated for oily and blemish prone skin. This really light and gentle moisturiser leaves your skin feeling hydrated without any shine at all, whilst reducing redness. The naturally derived marine extract Seamat absorbs excess oil whilst extract of iris, bergamot and vitamin A balance and purify the skin. It also makes it so much easier to apply make up after you’ve applied this moisturiser. Teenage skin is prone to be oily and so this is the perfect solution. It is a myth to think that oily skin doesn’t need moisturising.
Tired Eyes Soothing Eye Rescue – This reviving gel gently tightens and hydrates the delicate eye area. It also helps refresh and reduce puffiness. Elemis really has thought of everything! This is just what your average teenager, who stays up too late staring at a computer screen needs! Say goodbye to tired eyes as this soothing eye gel comes to the rescue!
How to use: The skin around the eye area is very delicate so never overload with product. Apply a small amount with a gently tapping action.
I totally love this range – it gives you exactly what it says on the box – FRESH SKIN!
