I recently came across the just-launched ‘Freshskin’ range of products from Elemis and my skin hasn’t stopped thanking me ever since!
The weather can be really dry and punishing for the skin this season, especially for troublesome skin like mine- oily in part and parched in others. After trying everything from petroleum jelly to water-based lotions to alarmingly expensive creams, I was about to leave things to divine intervention…until I got my hands on Freshskin.
When I read that it is especially tailored for ‘young’ skin I was a bit taken aback, because I though, “do girls in the age 16- 25 really need that much skin care?” Turns out they do! Let’s face it, it’s a lot less depressing than using ‘anti aging’ products anyday :–) and it’s a better fit for girls under 30, as it’s especially made keeping the specifics of this skin-age in mind.
Even though I’m in my late (um very late) 20s, I did see a massive improvement in texture, feel and radiance in my skin after using the Peachy Face Wash, under eye cream and moisturizing serum daily, for about 2 weeks now. Here’s what I tried and why I’m absolutely devoted to it:
Peachy Face Wash:
You know that feeling when you skin seems stiff and dry after using a facewash? Like a moisturizer emergency? Well, this one does quite the opposite! I love how hydrated the skin felt after using this facewash – fresh, soft and incredibly supple with moisture. Also loved the hint of peachy fragrance it felt behind, which is where it probably got its name. It actually is gentle enough to use everyday, even coming from a person who has a severe dry skin zone- Amazing product!
Daily Moisturizing Serum:
I was skeptical about using a serum, because with my skin, I can instantly tell when it has ODed on moisturizer- and that’s far from an ideal conclusion. But this intense moisturizing serum turned things around and how. It not only hydrated the skin but also brightened my complexion and gave it a rather flattering glow- love it to bits! (Not to be used as a daily moisturizer though, just as a boost once in three- four days)
Under Eye Cream:
I’ve never needed under eye creams until very recently (all those late night TV show- streaming and the early morning grind to work does take a toll on the eyes at some point) but thanks to my bottled savior, the dark circles have been successfully kept at bay. Well I do push it at times but it’s reassuring to know there’s a quick fix to raccoon eyes in my bed side drawer!
This light, all- in –one facepack has become my favorite weekend thing to do (no, really I’m quite the dork)! There’s nothing better than to start the next week looking like your skin’s been on a spa vacation. The pack visibly tightens pores, evens out skin tone and enhances the complexion- and thankfully has none of that horrible bleach element in it. I could swear I heard my skin thank me over and over!
Other outstanding products in this range are the day and night daily moisturizing creams, the Exfoliation face mask and the make up remover face wipes. Follow them on Twitter or Facebook for more info.
