Elemis Pro Collagen Body Cream Product Review

Elemis Pro Collagen Body Cream available here

I'm really enjoying trying out Elemis products at the moment and I'm dying to try out the FreshSkin sets.

However, right now we're talking about the Elemis Pro Collagen Body Cream.* 

The product itself

What is it?
A body firming cream

How much does it cost?
£51 for 200ml

What does it claim to do?
"This decadent new Pro-Collagen formula combines mexican skin tree, amino acids and padina pavonica with exotic babassu, castanha and bilberry seed oils to help restore skin cohesion and visibly tone the body. The result is a beautifully smooth, luminous and firmer looking body. Helps to smooth out crepey skin texture. Deeply hydrating. Improved skin contours. This new formula is designed with lattice technology and a unique complex of marine extract padina pavonica, amino acids and exotic oils to give you advanced anti-ageing results for your body. Lifts and firms with an "invisible stocking effect". Tones the skin by helping to restore cell cohesion. Helps skin recover from environmental damage. Illuminates the skin with a youthful radiance."

Close up - look for the sparkles!

The verdict
I applied this as directed using circular motions into cleansed, dry skin morning and evening. The product itself is a quite thick, lovely warm gold colour cream.

Not only does it sink in very easily and feel soft, it leaves skin feeling comfortably moisturised without any residue. It as if you hadn't mositurised at all in that skin feels natural after application, as if it's just your skin as it should be.

Compared to the areas which hadn't been moisturised, skin appears softer, smoother and more even. Skin looks and feels softer and firmer. The illuminating effect comes from the tiny gold particles within the cream itself as well as the colour of the cream and leaves a lovely warm glow on skin. Excuse the extreme close up but hopefully you can see the gold particles on the hand picture above!

Overall, this is wonderful luxury product that leaves skin looking illuminated and feeling hydrated. A luxury product that I'd personally save for evenings out and special events.

Have you guys tried out any of the Elemis range?
