Elemis - Pro-collagen Cleansing Balm



So its no secret to you all that i adore Elemis products and have loved the Pro radiance illuminating balm for a primer and moisturiser. Its soothing through my times when I'm a needing some soft touch to my skin so it seemed sensible to pair this with my cleansing routine, by replacing my fresh-skin face wash. Try the new Pro collagen Cleanser.

Its said to 

This powerful treatment cleansing balm dissolves make-up and daily grime. Developed first and foremost for its performance in Elemis treatments, this super-cleansing, luxurious treatment balm is expertly formulated with a 100% active base of natural oils grown within the UK.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm combines precious starflower, elderberry and optimega™ oils with rose and mimosa waxes, and anti-ageing padina pavonica to deeply cleanse, nourish and smooth for a glowing complexion.


Now i used this with my clarisonic in the evenings and with using makeup to help remove the grime plus with the clarisonic being so intense you don't want a harsh cleansing wash with that. 
The Elemis Pro-collagen is a thicker balm which i prefer with my clarisonic as i find it doesn't slip or move as much as the liquid kinds. Its gives the cleaning system a chance to really dissolve all the dirt that the soap may escape in normal circumstances. It does have a almost herbal smell to it but a little goes a long way, literally a light scoop will be plenty. I found it to be refreshing and also choose to use this in the morning on a muslin as it made my skin feel awake and just very fresh.


I can see why it is so popular as with all Elemis, it just is helping nourish the skin in every way and breaks down all the pore clogging grime, plus left my skin feeling very smooth which is why i chose to use it twice a day. I felt like it made the perfect base to really ensure my moisturisers and primers (Pro-illuminating balm) absorbed fully and ensure that first defence in your daily routine before makeup is effective. Its a cleanser i know when i am testing other products if i succumbed to any breakout or problem this would balance my skin in no time. 

I love this balm and find it so effective in all the claims it makes. Its even multi-tasking as a facial mask for relaxation. If you so wish to use the balm lightly on the skin for 10 minutes to warm up then remove with a warm cloth. Its just like a aromatherapy mask with the oils infusing more with the bodies heat making the aroma intense to calm the senses. I have not tried this yet, as i know i would probably end up falling asleep being in such a relaxed states so i have just used it for one purpose. Im happy with the results and enjoy this product immensely. 


Have you tried any Elemis products ? What are your favourites ?
