A couple of weekends ago I went on a spa weekend at the Macdoanld Berystede Hotel, which was amazing (there will be a separate post on that coming soon). All the products used in the spa were Elemis and I enjoyed a fabulous back massage and facial. The whole day I was eyeing up the range of Elemis products the spa stocked so I decided to treat myself to a couple of bits before I left.
I went for the Herbal Lavender Repair Mask and Fruit Active Rejuvenating Mask (both £29 for 75ml), which my spa therapist had used on me during the treatment and recommended. The Lavender mask is designed for combination/hormonal skin that is prone to congestion - my skin had flared up a couple of days before the spa day due to tiredness and this settled it perfectly. It is an oil-absorbing, healing and regenerating mask which contains rosemary, thyme and lavender to heal and calm the skin, making it purified and re-balanced.
The Fruit Active mask is more of a brightening and moisturusing mask. It is packed with strawberry and kiwi and, for me, it is an all-round mask that ticks all the boxes. It helps to deep cleanse the skin but the lovely creamy texture also adds a glow and is a pick-me-up treat for tired skin. I've been using it as a quick treatment before going out in the evenings to wake my skin up a bit, and also use it at the end of the week as a treat for my skin after a week of work!
Before purchasing these I had never used Elemis products before so I was very excited to give them a go. They are a little pricey, I was disappointed as the size of the tubes given the boxes were so much bigger, but I am willing to pay a bit more for high end skincare and I have been very impressed with them so far!
