New Beauty cleansing balm by ELEMIS – Perfect for the asian bride
When Elemis launch any product, you can guarantee that beauty editors up and
down the country will be raving about it. It’s simply because they exceed
expectations and deliver great looking skin. And it’s been the same with the
recent launch of their Pro-collagen cleansing balm. At just under £40 the price
tag might be a little steep for those of us who are still mad for the Pro-radiance
cream cleanser (it’s £10 cheaper at £29) but it promises to be Elemis’ most powerful cleanser yet.
Firstly it’s worth noting this is Elemis’ first cleanser with their pro-collagen
formula. Their pro-collagen marine cream is a revolutionary moisturiser, and has
won every single award worth winning since its launch, ten years ago. It’s simply
divine. If that’s anything to go by the cleansing balm will teach us a new way to
cleanse our skin.
First lesson: this isn’t a cream, it’s a balm. It has a hypnotic scent, with a
signature blend of geranium, eucalyptus, lavender, orange amongst others blended
with starflower and elderberry oils fused mimosa and rose wax. As with most of the
Elemis range, the product is warmed between the hands to release the aroma and applied
to a dry face. The product transforms into a milky substance when massaged into the skin
with wet fingers – removing all traces of make up and dirt, when removed with a warm cleansing
cloth. Skin is said to be left silky soft and nourished.
