Elemis skin bliss capsules - alternatives?

I was given some Elemis skin bliss capsules for my birthday and I love them. However, I'm not sure I can justify the expense - so was wondering if there is a good alternative?

All the oils/serums I've used in the past have either been too thin, and did nothing - or too thick/sticky and have given me spots. The Elemis stuff is perfect!

Are any other Elemis products the same stuff, but not in the capsule? Or are any other brands a good substitute?

Not really an alternative but they recommend you use them 2 - 3 times a year rather than all the time.

I love them too but they are sooo expensive. I've been using neals yard rose facial oil instead. You only need a tiny bit.

Jemima - that's interesting, I didn't know that. So do you think it would be just for a week each time?

dazzling - thanks for the suggestion, I'll give it a try!

Footyfan - it's the 30 day course they recommend I think.

Perfect - thanks!

I didn't know that they were a one or twice a year course either. Good to know. My skin could do with a bit of a boost.
