Although I am a creature of habit, I enjoy finding new products to try. I’ve been seeing many people talk about Elemis Skincare so I had to see what the hype is about.
WHAT IS ELEMIS
ELEMIS is known to be a luxury British skincare brand that has over 30+ years of skincare expertise. They pride themselves on using innovative technology that treats the surface of the skin without compromising the skin’s delicate layers.
The skincare brand consists of an array of products from, cleansing balms, toners, serums, moisturizers, and more. They have products for most skin types. Over the last couple of years, ELEMIS has become popular throughout the United States and is known for their Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm and their Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Pads. Most products can be found at popular stores like ULTA, and Amazon.
OVERVIEW OF ELEMIS
I had the opportunity to test out a few products by ELEMIS to see if these products to see if they lived up to the hype. Keep in mind, I will be sharing individual reviews on each product in the upcoming weeks so be sure to SUBSCRIBE HERE to gain access to exclusive content and alerts when a blog post is published.
ELEMIS has a great line of skincare products and they have a product for almost every skin type. Most, if not all have shown proven results after approximately 6-8 weeks of consistent use. These products are not formulated with toxic ingredients like dyes and parabens and they undergo third-party testing.
From a price standpoint, they are in the mid to high price range but they do have sales often. They are also sold at other retailers such as ULTA where you can find great deals.
This is the product that I always heard about when people referenced ELEMIS. I could not wait to try it and to be honest, it surely lives up to the hype. It gently removes my makeup, cleanses my skin, and does not leave my skin feeling dry. This balm has a unique blend of 9 essential oils including lavender, chamomile, and refreshing eucalyptus. It is available in four sizes and starts at $14.
Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Pads
These facial pads smell amazing. They are powered by a patented Tai-Enzyme technology that is formulated with lactic acid and probiotic ferment complex. This technology has been clinically proven to speed up the skin’s natural cell turn in about 28 days! It is recommended that you use this twice a day (morning and night) to see visible results. This is perfect if you are looking to reduce the appearance of dark spots and uneven texture.

OVERALL FIRST IMPRESSION
While I do think that ELEMIS has a great line of products and I am a fan of their Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm. While digging deeper into the skincare line I have learned that they may not directly test on animals but in other countries where they are sold, certain laws regulate beauty brands to test on animals*. It is not clear on their site and seems a bit misleading when it comes to animal testing so, I have reached out to an ELEMIS representative to get clarity and will follow up. Now if this is something that doesn’t concern you, I would highly recommend trying out ELEMIS.
Great selection of products
Made with non toxic ingredients
