Anyone using Elemis?

DH treated me the spa once and my skin had never been happier. I can't remember what they used on me unfortunately other than the papaya enzyme one which I have. Anyone has other Elemis product recommendation? Thanks.

The marine cream face moisturiser. It's lovely, light but fairly rich and lovely smell and texture. Wait for a TSV on qvc to get it at a decent price

I use the Skin Buff exfoliator when I’m in the shower. It lasts for ages as you only need a tiny amount and it’s really made a difference to my dull combination skin.

Cleansing balm, marine cream and a newish night cream - all must haves for me

Marine cream. Also the Pro Intense Eye and Lip Contour cream is amazing. If I stop using it, fine lines reappear around my eyes. It's £££ but should last you 6 months using twice a day.

Marine cream here too - utterly wonderful.

Pro collagen cleansing balm is lovely.
I’m a complete Elemis hoarder
Try all
Much cheaper on there

That should be

I use the cleansing balm and the pro collagen marine cream both day & night versions. Am going to buy the pro intesnse eye & Lip contour balm next, and one of the serums.

My skin is the best it has ever been - I've used many different creams over the (many) years but wont budge now from Elemis.

Was not personally impressed by the Balm cleanser or pro collagen stuff but loved the skin oil stuff.

If you can wait a week, QVC have got a fab tsv coming up. Just under £45 with four months easy pay for cleansing balm 50g, full size ginseng toner, 30ml marine cream (worth £52 by itself) plus hand wash, hand cream (I think) and a shower cream.

I love Elemis, qvc is the best place to get it, although eBay is worth a look.

I'm a recent convert after having a couple of Elemis facials, debenhams have 15% off beauty until tomorrow and Elemis is on free gift with 2 purchases one to be anti aging skincare. Plus topcashback has 5% on debenhams beauty too. I love the ultra rich marine cream, ginseng toner and cleansing balm.

That's a great deal from QVC, is it next Saturday the offer will be available?

suchatiredbunny Sat 04-Nov-17 19:09:00

Officially it’s the 12th but look online from weds as it should be available to order early.

suchatiredbunny Sat 04-Nov-17 19:09:37

I haven’t tried the ginseng toner, hopefully I’ll like it!

Ohms11 Sat 04-Nov-17 19:43:14

Yes... Cleannsing balm and marine day cream...frangipani scented body products too. Love them!

Notthisnotthat Sat 04-Nov-17 19:43:22

Perfect thanks, the ginseng smells lovely and my skin just feels so good after cleansing and toning that sometimes I think I wouldn't need to moisturise, but the marine cream is fab.

I tried the pro collagen marine cream and didn't see any difference.
Far too expensive and no change in appearance !!!

70isaLimitNotaTarget Sat 04-Nov-17 21:25:00

I've dabbled in Elemis and I bought a TSV in April IIRC.
I don't like the PCMC but I do love the Oxygenating Night Cream

Love the Tri-Enzyme face wash (you use it as a step after cleansing to resurface the skin)

There was a foaming face wash which I haven't used yet (still got a travel size)
And Sea Lavender showergel which was nice

I used the serum in the TSV which was lovely in Summer , not oily at all.

mercurymaze Sat 04-Nov-17 21:27:47

love the marine cream/shower gels and oils

definitely buy from QVC they have so many great deals, I would never buy direct or from department stores as the products are £££ there

VirginMeDear Sat 04-Nov-17 21:28:27

Love the cleansing balm and it lasts for ages.

Elledouble Sat 04-Nov-17 21:31:48

The Tri-Enzyme face wash is good. The frangipani body scrub is to die for. Love the papaya enzyme peel which you have too smile

MinesaPinot Sat 04-Nov-17 23:12:11

I've tried Elemis several times (usually via TSVs from QVC) and, to be honest, have been distinctly underwhelmed, especially when you consider that it is quite ££ as a rule. The Marine Cream in particular just doesn't suit me, even the rich version, and just doesn't give my face the moisture it needs.

However, the exception to that is the Pro-Collagen Cleansing cream - their version of C & P - which is great, really good cleansing and softening. I'd happily repurchase that.

All of the above is quite strange, when I think that one of the best facials I have ever had was an Elemis one, which left my skin looking and feeling absolutely beautiful. Perhaps I'm just not as good at using the products as the therapist was...

MusicToMyEars800 Sat 04-Nov-17 23:15:59

The Pro collagen cleansing cream is nice, the Micellar water is lovely too, and the apricot toner spray.

I personally love the body creams, the Frangipane and monoi body cream is gorgeous.

QVCTV have an amazing Elemis offer on at the moment
