Wears My Money

I mean, really…

Elemis summer skin and more

This post is sponsored by Elemis, a skin care brand I have known and loved for ages. Don’t forget the code 25KATE is still running until 30th June for 25% off most FULL-SIZE products on the Elemis site.*

On last month’s Elemis feature post I banged on again about the Pro-Collagen  Cleansing Balm. Can’t praise that highly enough, but this time I’ll look at the moisturisers – which are equally as good – and let you know more products from other brands that I am using in the summer.

For the past month I’ve been trying out the Elemis Pro-Collagen Eye Revive Mask. It can be used as a mask overnight and also as a de-puffer and eye soother during the day. I’m always a bit careful with eye cream as my eyes are très sensitive, so I started out just using it at night and have recently moved on to dotting it on in the morning too. I’m happy to say it works! And zero reactions. It’s a very soothing gel and the skin around my eyes already feels smoother. 

I’ve been using the Elemis Pro-Collagen day and night creams since the middle of last year and I can’t see me switching brands anytime soon. In the summer I use the Marine Cream SPF 30 first and then add a dedicated SPF cream over the top. Can’t be too careful. At 48 I’m finally over the ‘I have to burn before I can tan’ excuse. The days of starting on factor 15, then 8, then going down to basically basting myself with Hawaiian Tropic oil are well and truly gone. 

At night I use the Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream. I sometimes layer it over hyaluronic acid serum for extra bonus hydrating points, but to be honest on my skin I don’t often need anything extra as this cream is super hydrating already but without that thick, heavy feel you sometimes get with night creams. I still have memories of waking up a greasy mess after trying to emulate my granny with her Ponds night cream.  None of that with Elemis you’ll be glad to know. 

Here are the other summer beauty products I’m currently using and why I like them:
