Elemis launches Superfood Vegan range
My love for all things Elemis is real. Very Real. And it just got even more real after launching their new Superfoods range that is vegan, vegan, and vegan! Did I mention that it’s vegan? It also contains classic Superfood ingredients like vitamins and antioxidants, as well as pro-biotics that help balance the skin's delicate microflora.
Their Superfood Facial oil (R1050) hit the market with a bang, garnering bestseller status in record time, and encouraging Elemis to add three more products to the range, for which we are ever thankful. Dankie Elemis.
Now you all know by now that I’m not a big fan of facial wash. I much rather prefer a cleansing balm or oil over products that leave my skin feeling tight and rubber-like (a standard result when it comes to face wash or soap).
But seeing that Elemis can’t do wrong in my eyes, I was naturally drawn to their Superfood Facial Wash (R550), and instantly fell in love with the thick and creamy green wash that gently lathered and refreshed my complexion. Omega-rich ingredients include 9 antioxidants, broccoli seed, kale extract and avocado oil, which all work together in serving up a feast for your skin. No dry or rubber-like results in sight! The product also got a very enthusiastic thumbs up from my fiancé, whose skin is sensitive and prone to eczema.
The Day Cream (R920) - equally lovely – stood out by how well it carried my makeup. I especially liked the container: super easy to use, travel-friendly, and soft on the eye. The cream has a light green colour with a luxurious, rich (but not oily) feel to the skin. More Superfoods ingredients like ginger ferment, matcha tea and cucumber seed really set this range apart from all other products.
The Night Cream, I have to admit is pretty pricey (R1010), but if I had to choose between this and the Superfood Facial Oil, I’ll most likely opt for the oil. The way it absorbs into your skin overnight, leaving you with a wonderful glow the next morning, is simply incredible.
All in all, I adore the idea of ingredients such as goji berries, kale and avocado in my skincare as I know how good they are for my insides. There's nothing about this range I did not like. The packaging is elegant, the ingredients good, and the results, well, beautiful glowing, healthy-feeling skin. Personally, I would've loved using something like this when I was in high school, and this is why I highly recommend it to young, uncomplicated skin who enjoys a healthy lifestyle.
