Elemis 5 Piece Skin Lift Collection – I’m always a bit skeptical when brands offer ‘Special Collections’ for a reduced price. The original (or ‘RRP’) price quoted is nearly always inflated and you can usually buy them for a lot less if you shop around on the net.
So, I did my research, looked for the cheapest price for each product, and
my son worked out the cost proportionally for the less than full-sized products.
The total cost if you buy these products separately is £204.70. QVC is offering the collection for £89.00 – plus £5.95 for P&P. But, even the hefty postage still makes this set genuinely less than half price.
I’m already a huge fan of Elemis Pro-Intense range, so I’m really excited to trial these targeted anti-ageing products. To be honest though, Elemis had me at ‘firmer jawline.’
The collection includes:
- Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser 150ml (FULL SIZE – on sale for £29.00) £29.00
- Pro-Intense Eye & Lip Contour Cream 15ml (FULL SIZE – on sale for £60.00) £60.00
- Pro-Intense Lift Effect Day Cream 30ml EXCLUSIVE LAUNCH £50.00
- Pro-Intense Lift Effect Night Cream 30ml (50ml is £95.00) £57.00
- Gentle Rose Exfoliator 15ml – (50ml is £29.00) £8.70
Designed to reduce the appearance of loose skin, improve tone and texture, and moisturise your complexion; reinvigorate your skin care routine with this comprehensive collection from Elemis.
A deeply moisturising cream facial cleanser with active fragrances of sweet Brazilian orange, lavender, ylang ylang and patchouli, and formulated with essential plant extracts, moringa seed peptides, greater burdock, noni and assai fruit. Helps to balance your complexion and defend against daily pollutants.
HOW TO USE
Gently spread over the skin and around the eye area with your fingertips, removing make-up until the cleanser has warmed. For a deeper lather, mix in palms with water. Leave for one minute, remove with a damp warm mitt or cloth and pat face dry.
Using a cleanser without splashing your face with water made me skeptical at first. However, after purchasing Elemis Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser, I realised how convenient it can be to use after a night out when only a damp face cloth is needed to remove the grime.
I take this cream cleanser over the eye area too and let it sink in for a while before removing the excess with a damp muslin cloth. I have quite sensitive eyes and using it to remove eye make-up poses no issues for me.
A rich textured cream containing active plant stem cells from edelweiss that contribute to protecting the shape of skin cells and hydrating throughout the day.
HOW TO USE
Smooth around the eye and lip areas morning and evening.
I have very dry and thin skin under the eyes and this cream leaves a firmer skin. I recommend it. The only thing is that it could be a bit less expensive.
The newest edition to the Pro-Intense range features a bio-complex of high-tech nature and plant stem cells, the trademarked Papilactyl D, lupin, and plant stem cells of edelweiss and tiger grass. Designed to help improve tone and texture to give the appearance of a firmer jawline and taut cheeks.
HOW TO USE
Apply each morning to cleansed skin, or during the day as required.
Formulated with a powerful blend of gardenia stem cells, arjuna and lupin, this cream helps to improve the appearance of jawlines, cheeks and chin.
HOW TO USE
Apply every evening to cleansed skin.
Formulated with absolute of Moroccan rose, smooth micro-spherical jojoba beads very gently exfoliate to leave skin soft to the touch. Subtly fragranced, this gel exfoliator is gentle enough to be used daily on all complexions, including the most sensitive.
HOW TO USE
After cleansing, dampen your skin with warm water and apply in circular motions around the face and neck. Gentle enough for everyday use.
I have a dry T zone which means I need to exfoliate often. This exfoliator is really mild and I am able to use it daily, without drying out my skin. The granules have a really gentle effect and the gel like product feels really luxurious on my skin. An added bonus is it smells like a rose garden.
The quality of wash bags included with gift sets can vary wildly, but Elemis bags have a good track record and they’re always well made. This is a rather nice one. It’s sturdy, but soft, with a leather-look ‘grain’ texture. It’s quite spacious and can comfortably contain all the products included without jamming them in, plus there’s space in there for a few more skin care necessities.
