If I'm being honest skincare is something I've been a little slack on with moving, and on top of having added stress etc. my skin has been a bit rubbish and unloved, so when i saw this in the #southwestbloggersmeet goodie bag i was really excited to give it a try. Knowing that Elemis is such an established, well known and trusted brand i had quite high hopes for this face wash and was looking forward to seeing the results it claimed to do.
" With a deep pore cleansing action, this exfoliating facial wash contains cherry powder and jojoba beads to gently polish and help refine skin texture. Enriched with mandarin and aniseed to soften and condition, leaving skin brightened and more radiant."
With it containing fruity ingredients you can imagine the first thing you notice is the wonderful light and fruity scent,which reminds me of summer and i want to eat it haha. It's very creamy in consistency and packed full of tiny jojoba beads, because of this i find a little goes a long way. I've used this a couple of times to help get rid of my dry patches and bring balance to my skin and it's doing an amazing job. The jojoba beads remove all dead skin cells and any make-up/dirt that has been left behind from cleaning, which in turn leaves my skin baby soft and more radiant. I certainly think that my skin will be noticeably brighter with this being incorporated into my weekly skincare regime. This exfoliator is very gentle on my skin, where I've found some can be quite harsh and although we want to remove the dead skin and dirt we don't want to scrub away at the nice fresh skin underneath.
This product is from their teens to twenties range and personally i think they've got the packaging spot on, bold and bright it's certainly eye catching to this age range. I also really like the fact they have this line, being in my twenties i think most skin care is either aimed at teens or for the over 40's and there isn't really much focused or designed for the in between. I must say on first impressions i am very impressed with this face wash and it has certainly made me want to explore Elemis more as a brand. I would happily pay £12 for this as in my eyes skin care is extremely important to perfect make-up, you can have the best foundation in the world but if you don't take care of this skin underneath it's not going to look that good.
