End of summer skincare – and 25% off Elemis

— by Alyson Walsh


I’ve always been low-maintenance when it comes to make-up and grooming, I’m not sure I’ve ever had a ‘beauty regime’.  But our skin does change as we grow older and, now that oestrogen has left the building, I’ve become a bit more interested in looking after my face. That doesn’t mean I’m obsessing over wrinkles or trying to reverse the ageing process, I’m just interested in having radiant, healthy-looking skin.


Elemis is offering 25% off selected beauty products


When it comes to daily moisturisers, I want a cream that’s light, easily absorbed, and not overly fragranced (I have sensitive skin, and eyes. I guess you could say I am easily irritated…). Elemis’ Pro-Collagen Marine Cream with SPF is an absolute winner. It’s the best moisturiser I’ve found, and I know beauty editors who say the same. The ‘Dream Cream’ is expensive but I find a little goes a long way; this jar will last for months. Mature skin can be dry, the Elemis moisturiser is super-hydrating and light with a creamy formula that doesn’t leave skin looking greasy. The last thing I want is to spend all day feeling like I’ve got something sticky on my face.



The Elemis Superfood Multi Mist was recommended by make-up artist Anna Durston, so I thought I’d give it a go. She suggests putting one in your bag to spritz your face and help refresh and nourish skin throughout the day. Personally, I prefer to leave it on my desk, to give myself a quick spray every now and then; I like the feeling of coolness on my skin and find the gorgeous fragrance uplifting.



The summer has been hot, wet and windy, and so my weather-beaten skin has been enjoying this end-of-season treat. The Pro-Collagen Renewal Serum is called a ‘retinol alternative’ which suits me fine, because I’m still a bit scared of retinol (more on this soon). I had been using the Marine Cream for a couple of weeks and just started applying the serum, beforehand, when I met up with my friend Linda (the TNMA podcast editor). Linda is French, has a beauty regime and sees a dermatologist. She complemented my skin, said it looked fresh and wanted to know what was different –  if I’d changed my diet. Au contraire, it’s the Elemis.
