Elemis Anti-ageing Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm – The Civilian Report

If there's anyone who's going to give an honest opinion about a product its Bree. I'm constantly asking her what she's using and what she thinks of it. This honesty makes her my go to guinea pig when I get sent something that I just can't try myself. That being said she's always banging on about the Elemis Cleansing balm so I asked her for a review. Here it is...

Elemis Anti-Ageing Pro-Collagen Cleansing BalmI must confess right up that I love Elemis stuff, without exception. It's just so damn pricey. Their Papaya Enzyme Peel is dreamy. Recommend. Anyway, when I made the move from my long-standing Deralogica habit to something else, Elemis was where I went. This Pro-Collagen stuff had lovely things said about it all over the Internet, like some hit HBO series, and so I took the plunge and bought a small jar. I now use it once daily before bed (in the interests of economy, using the very reliable Philosophy 3-in-1 cleanser in the mornings).
You get a good gloop of the soft yellow pasty cream-like stuff on your finger and massage in, and emulsify with a little water, massaging in further. If you have one of those fancy skin massaging cleanser brush things, use. I just massage in well with fingers and then use a warm flannel to remove. It's lovely stuff. Leaves you feeling moisturised before you've even moisturised.

Since using this I've not suffered any dry patches in the corners of my nose, and I'd even go so far as to say that my face has been less blotchy in the mornings. If you are lucky you can sometimes find a larger jar than usual - they are great value. Get.
