Oh hello there lovely Day Cream
I was lucky enough to get invited to an Elemis event recently where their brand
manager enlightened us with all the exciting things the brand is launching before the
end of the year.
I got to take one of the new products home, the Dynamic Resurfacing Day Cream
SPF 30 and boy oh boy, do I like. This product forms part of their Dynamic
Resurfacing range which consists of a Facial Wash, Gel Mask, Serum and a Night
Here are my three favorite things about this day cream:
SPF 30 – NEED I SAY MORE?
Best advice my momma gave me: wear sunscreen! And that is what I did every day
since I can remember. Here’s the thing, SPF creams are often quite sticky, heavy,
and tend to make me feel, well, dirty. Which is soooo not the case with this pot of
gold. (heart skips a beat) Even though it’s a thick and luxurious cream, it feels light
when applying which in turn lets my skin breathe long breaths of beauty. I’ve also
noticed a definite glow after using it for 2 weeks and my skin feels softer and
smoother upon touch. (heart skips another beat)
I am a massive fan of good, active ingredients and that’s what this range is about. So
naturally I added it to my list of holy grail cosmetic gems. Organic Myrtle Extract
helps protect and detoxify the cells of the dermis and the epidermis. Selastin is
another one of the active ingredients in there - derived from seaweed, this active
helps speed up the skin turnover process which means brighter, healthier looking
skin! Raspberry seed oil seals in moisture and helps protect the skin’s barrier. It also
softens and soothes.
There aren’t a lot of SPF 30 Day Creams out there to start with, never mind ones
that smell good enough to eat. I believe the moisturiser is the last part of our
skincare routine and it’s the smell we leave home with. What an absolute bonus
when a Day Cream is not only of high quality but smells delicious. I give this pot of
goodness 10 out of 10.
Elemis leaves my skin feeling quenched but not sticky, smooth and soft. And I can
genuinely feel that my skin texture’s improved. I’m adding the rest of the products
from this range to my Dear Santa letter tonight!
