Elemis Claim: Reveal radiant, soft skin with this Gentle Rose exfoliator. Use weekly to buff away dirt and dead skin cells to achieve a glowing youthful complexion. Microspherical jojoba beads are blended with hydrating rose absolute to gently exfoliate the surface of the skin leaving it silky smooth to the touch. Cucumber extract, rich in vitamin C moisturises as it soothes and refreshes.
I’m all over exfoliation, I’ve done it my whole life, literally! Not just my face, my whole body, as having smooth healthy looking/feeling skin is really important to me. I use this as instructed once a week (on my face). What I particularly like about this product is that you can use this over the entire eye area (very gently) This area really benefits from exfoliation and helps to ward off any dryness/crepiness. My skin does indeed feel soft and smooth after use. There really aren’t any negatives to mention about this wonderful exfoliator. I have even used it on my daughter whenever she gets those tiny little pimples on the backs of her arms.
The fragrance is, of course, Rose and is beautiful. It’s a joy to use and will continue to be seen on my bathroom shelf for the forceable future!
I snap up these 15 ml sample/travel sizes. They are a good size and will last me a couple of months.
Award-Winning Papaya Enzyme Peel
Elemis claim: Natural fruit enzymes of exfoliating papaya and calming pineapple smooth and clarify the complexion. This rinse-off exfoliating cream contains nourishing milk protein, vitamin C and marine algae to moisturise, repair and protect for complexions that are sensitive or mature.
I have used Papaya Enzyme Peel for years and can verify that it does (for me, at least) really improve the clarity of my skin. My skin does tend to be sensitive at times so this works well for me. I also occasionally use it alone as an over night treatment and find it works really well for me this way. On waking, I cleanse as normal and my skin feels smooth and refreshed which I love. It smells gorgeous as do all Elemis products.
With the name Enzyme peel, it conjures up thoughts of one of those ‘peel off’ type masks. That’s not the case with this as it is a rinse off cream. Personally, I like to apply a good layer to my face, avoiding my eye area. I then jump in the shower and rinse it off just before finishing. lovely smooth skin revealed. Elemis recommend 10-15 minutes twice a week for best results.
Why don’t you give these two a go… They come highly recommended by me!
