On quite a few Facebook groups I’m a member of, there are often posts proclaiming about how much they love cleansing and how they hoard their favourite products in fear of being left short.
I have to say that initially I really couldn’t relate. I see cleansing as very much a means to an end and I’m far more interested in toners and serums – but once I used the Elemis Pro Collagen Cleansing Cream I well and truly believed the hype.
I’m not even 100% sure where I got the first little jar of cleanser – possibly in the LOOKFANTASTIC 2020 Advent Calendar – but from the first use I absolutely loved it.
I suffer from really dry and easily-irritated eyes so quite often using cleansers around my eye area is a total no-go, however despite being scented and having a thick balmy consistency, there’s no irritation from this product at all. Of their balm cleansers I’ve tried, this is definitely my favourite; it melts even the heaviest of makeup away and doesn’t leave skin with the tell-tale ‘stripped’ feeling that other cleansers do.
Like I mentioned it is quite fragranced in a very spa-like way, it infuses rose and mimosa wax with elderberry, starflower and optimega oils with a blend of nine essential oils including lavender, chamomile and eucalyptus to invigorate senses whilst leaving skin feeling softened and smoothed.
You can pick up the Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm here, keep an eye out for gifts with purchase as Elemis do tend to participate in them and remember you can use my LF code to save 20% on hundreds of brands!
10/10 I literally don't have a negative word to say about this product, even to the glass jars that an be reused - I'm backing Elemis all the way.
