With everything that life threw at us in 2020, the one thing I managed to stay on top of was my skincare regimen. In fact, I actually got more intentional about my skincare last year. I guess it felt like one of the only things I could control.
Plus, like mostly everyone, I had more time at home and wasn’t as rushed in the mornings. I’ve always been one to wash my face and moisturize at night, but my morning skincare routine had been more of an afterthought.
Over the past year, I’ve become more diligent about washing my face in the morning and using SPF before applying my makeup, and I can definitely see an improvement in my skin and the way my makeup looks throughout the day.
You probably already know that I’m a huge fan of the ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm for gently and thoroughly removing my makeup at night.
If you aren’t familiar with ELEMIS, it’s the #1 luxury British skincare brand, and it’s been gaining popularity here in the U.S. over the past few years.
I had been wanting to try some of their other products, so I was immediately on board when I was invited to test out their new Pro-Collagen Marine Cream — now available at Amazon, and 20% off from March 5-17th!
The Pro-Collagen Marine Cream is an anti-wrinkle day cream that’s designed to deliver ultimate hydration without the heaviness often found in anti-aging products.
The first thing I noticed when I opened the jar was the scent. It smells like I just walked into a luxury spa.
The texture is lightweight and creamy, and a little goes a long way. At first I wasn’t sure if it would give my dry skin the moisture it needs, but it actually leaves my skin feeling incredibly hydrated and not at all greasy.
It layers well under my SPF, as well as my foundation when I choose to wear it. It also has a bit of a cooling effect on the skin that lingers for a while.
I’ve been using this cream every day since I got it, and I’m loving this addition to my skincare routine.
They also sent me the Superfood Nourishing Face Oil and Pro-Collagen Eye Revive Mask to try out. I’ve been using Superfood Nourishing Face Oil almost every night after cleansing, and before my moisturizer. (The general rule of thumb when layering skincare is to go lightest to heaviest.) It absorbs quickly and feels very nourishing.
The Pro-Collagen Eye Revive Mask is the last product I apply at night. It has a cooling effect, as well, and it’s supposed to help plump up the skin and smooth and rejuvenate the skin around the eyes.
While I like all the ELEMIS products I’ve tried, the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream and the Cleansing Balm are definitely among my favorites. (To get 20% off the Cleansing Balm, click the $18.29/fl.oz. option.)
Not only does my skin look great, but I actually enjoy those few minutes in the morning and at night when I get to hide away in my bathroom and indulge in my spa-worthy skincare routine.
Best of all, these ELEMIS products can all be purchased at Amazon, and they ship free with Prime.
Let me know if you decide to try any of them, and what you think!
