Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm & Apricot Toner Review

I'm sure everyone's pretty familiar with Elemis and their skincare infact its hyped all over the blogging community. Naturally I was interested in trying some of their products so I decided to try their infamous cleanser and toner.

Elemis Apricot Toner 200ml - £21.00
Extracts of Apricot soothe and harmonise, giving rise to a fresh sensation and radiant appearance. Ideally suited to extra-sensitive, delicate and hormonal skin. This alcohol-free toner is so gentle, it may also be applied to cotton pads for a soothing eye treatment.

Firstly the scent of this toner is absolutely lush, I don't really suffer from any skin conditions but I noticed my pores are significantly minimized when I use this toner. It's mentioned that this toner can be used to soothe the eyes, I decided to give this a go and put it to the test and it actually works, so on a morning before my makeup routine I also use this on my eyes by soaking it into a cotton pad and then holding the pad against each of my eyes for roughly 10-15 seconds. I can actually say it is very gentle so I thought it would be ideal to buy one for my kit, as I've previously mentioned before our skin has PH levels and toning it helps a balanced PH level for you to then work with.

Elemis Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm - £39.50

This powerful treatment cleansing balm dissolves make-up and daily grime. Developed first and foremost for its performance in Elemis treatments, this super-cleansing, luxurious treatment balm is expertly formulated with a 100% active base of natural oils grown within the UK.
Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm combines precious starflower, elderberry and optimega™ oils with rose and mimosa waxes, and anti-ageing padina pavonica to deeply cleanse, nourish and smooth for a glowing complexion.

This toner has already made a huge impact so I was really excited to try it. This cleansing balm t isn't in liquid form like the majority of cleansers but can also be used as a mask too! To use this as a cleanser I simply apply to my face, wet my hands and massage this balm into my skin until it turns into a milky like formula, I then use a wet sponge and gently remove. To use this as a mask all I simply have to do is apply to my face with dry hands and leave it for 10 minutes before using a wet sponge to wipe it away. This cleanser is amazing my skin feels amazing after I use it, instantly my skin looks fresh too with no traces of makeup at all, whats a bonus is that this cleansing balm is anti-ageing! Although this carries a big price tag I don't thinnk it's over priced at all, on average a high-end cleanser costs roughly about £30.00 anyway and to say this works in more than one way I think its well worth it (besides you only need a little).

Is there anything you have totally loved from Elemis or anything you would recommend?

  2. The Elemis toner is one of my favourite products of all time, I find it so refreshing in the morning! I also tried the cleansing balm, I liked it and would use it again but it didn't blow me away, for the price I would rather buy the Emma Hardie
