Skincare worth splurging on – and 25% off Elemis
When it comes to beauty, I tend to take the same high-low approach as I do with fashion. There are certain items I don’t mind paying more for – think neatly tailored jackets and good shoes in the wardrobe department, quality skincare in the bathroom cabinet. Other everyday basics can be found on the high street. As makeup is not something I spend a great deal of money on – I’m happy with Burt’s Bees Lip Balm, Maybelline’s Great Lash Mascara and Rimmel’s Wonder’full Brow – I tend to reward this frugality by treating myself to more luxurious skincare. Elemis is one of my favourite brands, the products are consistently good and so when an email pinged into my inbox asking if I’d like to collaborate, I said yes before I’d even read the terms and conditions.
Having inherited my mum’s lovely skin and not looked after it as well – too much sun, caffeine, gin, not enough water – I’ve reached an age when I want a hydrating moisturiser with SPF. (On very hot, sunny days I do wear sunscreen on top but tend not to in winter). Of all the day creams I’ve tried over the last few years, Elemis’ Pro-Collagen Marine Cream is the best. It smells lovely and fresh, feels light and creamy, absorbs well and leaves my skin looking radiant. I’ve been using the Dream Cream together with the Pro-Collagen Super Serum Elixir, and I’m happy with the results. Though the products are at the higher end of the price range, I would definitely splurge on the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream to give my skin a treat and know beauty editors who say the same.
I also took the opportunity to try out a couple of products from Elemis’ Superfood Range. The Facial Wash with kale, nettle and rosemary, smells delicious and leaves skin feeling squeaky clean. While the Superfood Glow Priming Moisturiser does indeed make your skin look radiant and glowy (in a good way).
PROMO CODE UPDATE
Several readers have experienced issues with the promo code, so I’ve spoken to Elemis who have checked this across a range of products and are now happy that it is working properly. And just to be certain, Team TNMA has double-checked this, too. Apologies for any unnecessary faffing – and a quick reminder that the offer is open until 31st October 2020. Please note that certain products are exempt from the offer and listed in the T&Cs below.
Many thanks, Alyson
