UPDATE: Elemis 4-Piece ‘Pro-Collagen Visible Results Collection
Six weeks on and here’s an update on ELEMIS 4-Piece ‘Pro-Collagen Visible Results’ Collection of four skin care essentials from the Pro-Collagen range.
The set includes:
- Super Serum
- Advanced Eye Treatment
- Oxygenating Night Cream
- Neck & Décolleté Balm
PRO-COLLAGEN SUPER SERUM
A concentrated anti-ageing formula with a unique lipid-infused texture that helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving skin feeling smooth.
HOW TO USE
Morning and evening, dispense one to two pumps onto fingertips and massage upwards onto a cleansed face, neck and décolleté.
I need and want a bucket of this wonder serum. I have always loved Elemis serums, I was such a huge fan of the little vial of serums in the Pro-Intenses Lifting Collection that I even went so far as to buy extra supplies from eBay.
Skin is always absolutely gorgeous after using this product, it’s soft and velvety and foundation glides on smoothly.
I’m at the end of the pump bottle, I did use 2 full pumps twice a day and I’m thinking now I should have rationed myself to prolong it. THIS is the standout product for me out of all of the Elemis skin care products, (with Bliss Capsules coming in a very close second).
A glorious product that always delivers. If you’re looking to invest in one high quality Elemis product, then it should be this one.
PRO-COLLAGEN ADVANCED EYE TREATMENT
This incredibly lightweight formula helps smooth and firm the eye area, targeting fine lines and wrinkles for a more youthful appearance. Developed with padiana pavonica and blue flower linseed.
HOW TO USE
Morning and evening, dispense one to two drops onto the ring fingers and lightly pat around the eye contour.
I have loads of this left. It’s actually a very runny consistency and one fat drop will cover both eyes AND any other place you need hydration. I’ve been patting the excess onto my upper lip – it all helps!
Top Tip: Don’t ever allow the bottom of the pipette dropper to touch your skin i.e. your fingers, for fear of contamination. Let it just drop down by itself instead.
PRO-COLLAGEN OXYGENATING NIGHT CREAM
With oxygenating properties, this luxurious and moisture-rich cream is formulated to help your skin regenerate overnight, hydrating it to improve the look of brightness and elasticity, and leave your skin feeling plump and smooth. Infused with padiana pavonica.
HOW TO USE
Apply a pea size amount to cleansed skin each evening.
Warm between your palms and smooth over your face.
Avoid direct contact with eyes.
I also have a lot of this product left, it really is an extremely rich formula. However, because applying this cream is the very last step of my night-time skincare routine, I add 1 or , drops of wonder product, Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster.
I hold my hands up and will admit that the fake tan mixed with the night-time creates a tiny chemical reaction and gives off a faint ‘sour milk’ scent, although thankfully, it doesn’t linger for more than a few seconds.
Also, when you apply this cream blend, it looks a little white on the skin until it’s absorbed, but it absolutely works! You wake up with healthy i.e. lightly tanned, and soft feeling skin.
PRO-COLLAGEN NECK & DECOLLETE BALM
This balm features an innovative texture created to reduce crepiness and dryness in the delicate neck area, plus give a tightening, lifting and firming look to your skin.
HOW TO USE
Morning and evening, massage across the décolleté, bust and up your neck with light upward strokes.
The instructions on the tube say apply in just three upward strokes, but I’m just not able to do that, it doesn’t seem enough. Plus I seem to be using a lot of product already. The jury’s still out on this one!
