I am a moisturising addict! I can’t last longer than a minute after showering without having to slap on the moisturiser because my skin tends to feel tight, dry and uncomfortable, so I rush to cover myself in gallons of the stuff. For this reason, I have always steered clear of the more premium brands when it comes to body moisturiser, for fear of having to re-mortgage my house just to feed my habit. Until now!!
I have discovered Elemis Pro Collagen Body Cream and it’s absolutely gorgeous!!! I love it!! It smells beautiful, it feels amazing and my skin looks absolutely beautiful afterwards. It adds a brilliant luminosity to the skin and it feels smooth, soft and even looks quite plumped up. I have only been using it for a week, so it’s difficult to really judge its firming power but I have to say, I am very impressed so far.
The biggest bonus is that, because it is so luxuriously thick and creamy, you really don’t need a lot, so my fear of going through the stuff at 100 miles an hour is thoroughly put to rest. My skins feels moisturised all day long and even isn’t as dry after I get out of the shower.
I’m obsessed with anti-ageing for my face and now I can let the rest of me see a piece of the action!! Launched in September 2011, this is Elemis’ latest addition to their anti-ageing bodycare and I am welcoming it with open (super moisturised and hydrated) arms!!
It contains “a trio of exotic oils Babassu, Castanha andBilberry Seed Oil with marine algae Padina Pavonica and Elemis’ ground-breaking Micro-Lattice Technology. Harnessing the power of Laminaria Brown Seaweed, it creates a ‘body stocking’ effect on the skin”.
It really is my new best friend – especially as we get ready for the big chill.
It costs £49 for 200mls and your skin will thank you for every penny of it!!
