Hello beauties, Today’s post will be a review on the Elemis Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm that I recently received in my recent Latest In Beauty monthly beauty box. I wanted to do a separate review of this as it was a product I was really excited to try. I always get nervous about trying out new skincare as I have really sensitive skin and it is so prone to break out!.

The balm has a very strong scent to it, almost like vapour rub mixed with perfume. I’m not overly fond of the fragrance but it doesn’t linger after use. It has a soft texture that leaves a slight oily residue once rubbed in.
How to use-
Warm between the palms and apply to the face, neck and décolleté using light circular massage movements. Moisten the fingertips before massaging over the skin. Remove with a warm, damp cotton cloth.
Alternatively, apply as a face mask. Leave on the face for up to 10 minutes before gently wiping away.
I liked to use this after I have removed my makeup with a wet wipe/ makeup removal cloth. I apply a small amount (a little goes a long way) and massage into the skin before removing with damp cotton pads. This makes sure all my makeup from the day has been removed leaving my skin clean ready for my face mask to be applied.
Since using this I have bought the full size tub as I have noticed it has made my skin much more hydrated in conjunction with the rest of my skincare and finding skincare that works without breaking me out or leaving my skin the shade of a tomato is a miracle!. The full sized 105g tub costs £40 which is expensive, but when you find a product you love you cant go back, especially when you have trouble skin. Plus I know it will last me ages so i’ll be getting my monies worth.
I will be posting a current skincare routine with everything I have used/still use to clear up my acne and keep clear skin next week so keep a eye out for that.
Have you ever tried any of the Elemis skincare range?. Let me know in the comments below!.
