Aimlessly walking around the city I end up at Harvey Nichols Edinburgh. Elemis counter looked mysterious yet inviting. Not familiar with the brand I decided to venture out and sign up for one of the Elemis facial treatments at their salon.Next day at the appointed time I turned up with no expectations but high hopes.
The girls were very friendly and informative about the brand and products that might suit my skin type and concerns. We started off with analyzing my skin and looking at pores, wrinkles, red arias and sun damage. Also I received a custom lifestyle program listing recommended day, night, holiday and body care, which was a nice touch.
The treatment itself was not only focusing on my face but also body. There was a conformable massage chair and even a hot stone massage. After my Elemis treatment my skin did looked at its best. I would definitely recommend trying the available treatments, if you are new to the brand or just looking to treat yourself. Looking back on the products used during the treatment I could certainly picked up a few favorites already. Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peal and Elemis Pro-Collagen Advanced Eye Treatment definitely earned a prime spot on my wish list.
One product that immediately stood up for me was Elemis Pro-Collagen Miracle Cream Ultra-Rich. This is one of the new product launches and technically a spin on cult favorite. Part of their anti-aging range and targeting fine lines and wrinkles this cream was not something I would normally go for. For the winter months of cold and wind attacking my skin I was in need of highly nourishing and hydrating day cream. Despite the ultra-rich claim on the tin I find this day cream to me quite light and very moisturizing. Sinks in very quickly, smells extra nice and my skin looks more radiant and calm. With my purchased I also received more than generous sample bag with fine (new) products. If you are in for a treat definitely check one of the Elemis counters.
