Whether you you are planning a weekend get-a-way or a relaxing, tropical vacation, don't forget to pack amazing skin care essentials that will keep your skin looking radiant. ELEMIS created a collection of luxurious, on-the-go travel size skin care products to make it easy for women to care for their face and body when away from home. The collection contains Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser, Balancing Lavender Toner, White Flowers Eye & Makeup Remover, Papaya Enzyme Peel, Frangipani Monoi Shower Cream, and its award-winning favorites, Pro-Collagen Marine Cream and Frangipani Monoi Body Oil. And if that weren't enough, the top-of-the-line products are all housed in a colorful and trendy MISHA NONOO designed bag.
I've provided a summary of the products from the travel bag and added my thoughts on a few of ELEMIS' anti-aging products, too.
Let's start with one of my favorites! ELEMIS Frangipani Monoi Body Oil has won Stylists' Best Beauty Award in 2016 and 2017, and after trying it, I could certainly see why. From head to toe, this hair, nail and body oil moisturizes and softens skin without leaving a greasy residue. I absolutely love the subtle, healthy sheen it leaves behind on my hair, nails and body, and it is super easy to add to my skin care ritual. After showering, I lightly towel dry and apply a few drops of oil into my palm and massage into my skin. To use on my hair, I simply massage a small amount into my hair, wrap with a warm towel, and leave on for 10-15 minutes. I'm so obsessed with this oil's multitasking abilities and superior quality, that I can easily justify the price to indulge.
I've been using ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Marine Cream for a few weeks and love how smooth, firm and hydrated my skin feels. This luxurious cream is very rich and moisturizing, and seeps into my skin only seconds after application, and leaves no greasy residue. After 14 days of using Pro-Collagen Marine Cream, I would absolutely agree with the independent clinical trials' claims of a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, improved hydration, and firmer skin. I am super- excited and impressed with this cream, and can really feel the difference in my skin! I had never heard of Padina Povinica, one of the active ingredients found in the cream, is an amazing intelligent algae found in the Atlantic and Mediterranean oceans, and changing the face of skin care. Combine this awesome algae with other quality elements like precious Rose and Mimosa absolutes, and it's no wonder you have an award-winning product!
Note to first-time users: A little goes a long way, so apply only a small amount and apply more, if needed.
The ELEMIS White Flowers Eye and Lip Make-Up Remover is works beautifully removing even stubborn waterproof mascara! I squeeze the bottle lightly to moisten a round cotton pad and wipe the make-up away. The remover is gentle on my eyes and doesn't leave an oily residue behind. No more pulling or tugging the delicate area under the eyes.
Both the Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser and Papaya Enzyme Peel are part of ELEMIS' travel collection. The Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser deep cleans without stripping or drying my skin. Only a pea-size amount is needed to provide a nourishing, rich lather over my face. My skin feels refreshed and clean.
The Papaya Enzyme Peel is a great pick-me-up for my skin and I use it when needed. After cleansing, I apply it to my skin for approximately 10 minutes, and rinse well. The exotic cocktail of fruit enzymes, naturally exfoliate my skin. It also contains vitamins and minerals to provide anti-oxidant and free-radical protection.
ELEMIS' Balancing Lavander Toner purifies and refreshes the skin and helps rebalance the PH levels in my skin. I've never been a fan of using toners on my skin (I'm not sure why?), but I do like this particular one, and may become a regular user.
For a quick pick-me-up, spritz it on your face avoiding contact with eyes.
The Anti-Ageing Biotec Skin Energising Cleanser leaves my skin fresh, clean and smooth. As with many of the ELEMIS products I've tried, a little goes a long way. A pea-size amount will lather up more than enough to cleanse my entire face. Another beauty award winner, the cleanser is charged with a trio of acids to deep clean and energize the skin.
Note: The Anti-Ageing Biotec Skin Energising Cleanser is NOT part of the ELEMIS Advanced Skincare Travel Sized Collection, but is available in full size, here.
Lastly, use the Frangipani Monoi Shower Cream in place of your shower gel or soap for a luxurious and hydrating experience. Massage over your body and rinse. It smells wonderful and leaves my skin feeling soooo soft.
So, there you have it. You can find all of the products in this luxurious ELEMIS travel collection on the ELEMIS site, here.
