Double cleansing your skin with Elemis skincare
Have you ever heard of double cleansing your skin? I hadn’t either I was introduced to ELEMIS.
It’s no wonder that they are the #1 luxury British skincare brand. I recently have been looking for a new way to change up my skincare routine, ELEMIS skincare seemed exactly what I was looking for. Not only are they great for cleansing and make-up removal, they are also anti-aging. Hello 41… AND I was able to get you an exclusive 20% off with code RYANNE20 now through March 31, 2021.
Essentially the benefit of double cleansing is that the first cleanser will break down any makeup, remove dirt and excess oils from the day and clean your skin. The second cleanser will address your particular skin type or concern and should have ingredients to hydrate, smooth or exfoliate.
Their best selling product is the Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm. This product is amazing as the first cleaning step because it works in a few ways. It goes on as a soothing balm easily removing make-up then adding water it emulsifies to a hydrating milk that easily rinses off and leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth.
Like other cleansing beams I’ve tried it has that thick petroleum jelly kind of texture putting it on your face but this one quickly melts in and feels more like an oil. I was shocked on how well it removes makeup even mascara!
I loved also that ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balms come in a couple formulations and scents. They just recently launched the Pro-Collagen Naked Cleansing Balm that is fragrance-free for those of you that don’t love a scent in your skincare.
I on the other hand have been using the Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm which is formatted for sensitive skin but I just love the SMELL! Not only can it be used as a cleanser but it’s also a make-up remover, facial mask, and a dry skin treatment.
For cleansing I warm a a pea-size amount of cleansing balm and massage over the face, neck and décolleté. Moisten fingertips and continue a circular massage. Remove with a warm, damp cleansing cloth (included). For a more intense treatment, apply a generous amount on your face and leave on for 10 minutes.
Then I use the Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Wash as my 2nd cleanse to remove dulling pollutants, dirt and impurities from the skin. It’s a light foaming gel cleanser and after both steps my skin feels radiant and soft.
After that everyone needs a great eye treatment, right?! I work close about 40 hours a week at the computer and I know it’s taken a toll on my eyes.
The Pro-Collagen Eye Revive Mask is formulated with Flash Filler Hyaluronic Acid, wrinkle-reducing Watermelon Snow Algae and antioxidant-rich Bush Clover to deeply hydrate and reduce the visible effects of tension and strain around the eye contour.
It has a gel-like texture that feels refreshing on the skin and instantly leaves the eye area looking smoother. Plus it’s another 3-in-1 formula can be used as an overnight anti-aging mask, a hydrating under eye primer and a moisturizing balm during the day.
In the evenings I end my skincare routine with the Pro-Collagen Overnight Matrix. This night cream is designed to firm, smooth and replenish. All the things I need after a day of mom life! I use a large pea-sized amount to massage it into my face, neck and décolleté.
In the morning I use again Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Wash to clean off any overnight gunk. Then I’ve been using the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream SPF 30. I heard that it’s an amazing anti-aging day cream that also quenches thirsty skin and increases hydration. During the winter I can use all the hydration I can get!
It has a gel-cream texture so it melts into my skin quickly giving me that combo of hydrated and moisturized skin so I’m ready for the day!
I have been so impressed with this line and will continue to double cleanse to keep those fine lines at bay! Don’t forget – get 20% off with code RYANNE20. Click HERE to shop.
