if there’s one thing i never tire of, it’s this: trying a new skincare line. after forty some odd years of washing my face—day and night—and then adding a dollop of moisturizer into the mix, i like to think of myself as something of an expert. let me put it this way: not only can i spell “experience”, but i have more than a few years of it under my belt. so, when QVC sent off the Elemis Super Skin collection and asked for my opinion, i didn’t hesitate. while i received compensation to review these products all opinions are my own and i could not and did not wait to get Elemis into my daily routine.
the first thing that impressed me about Elemis was its clean, crisp, and modern packaging. but when the lid came off of the pro collagen cleansing balm i knew there was something different. what a refreshing smell. unlike any other cleanser i’ve used to date. Elemis, we’re off to a good start.
once i rinsed the cleanser off my skin it felt smooth and supple. and that’s exactly how i like it. afterward, i applied the pro-collagen marine cream — light and airy it felt. such an important factor, as i like a no fuss no muss look.
since i was a teenager, the part of my skincare routine that i’ve stuck to religiously is cleansing day and night. but in recent years, i’ve switched up my moisturizing routine. i now have a moisturizer for day and a different one for the evening. since there’s no makeup to worry about during the nighttime hours, it doesn’t bother me if my evening one is a heavier cream, oil or serum.
it’s comforting to know that a nighttime moisturizer keeps on delivering essential nourishment w even when i’m off the clock. my skin is actually getting 24/7 coverage – pro-collagen marine cream during the day and peptide night recovery cream-oil during the night. what are my nighttime rituals exactly? besides a cleansed and moisturized face? Well, i crawl between crisp sheets and read for twenty minutes or so. there’s no television blaring, just the soft hum of our ceiling fan and the sound of my own thoughts. then it’s lights out for a good night sleep. nothing compares to eight hours of shut-eye, drinking plenty of water, and adding a few good skincare products into your daily routine to keep my skin looking its very best. Doesn’t every 58-year-old woman want that? Or even the men for that matter who need to take care of their skin just as much as the ladies do?
are you like me, ladies? excited to test out a new skincare line? then i’m happy to report that Elemis should be the next product you try. and let me know your thoughts. i’m always eager to share my opinion with you, but i love it, even more, when the roles reverse.
a big thank you to QVC and Elemis for this sponsored post. and thank you lovely readers for supporting the brands that allow me to bring fresh ideas daily
