Your wedding day face cream has got a tall order: it has to last the whole day, be a perfect base for your bridal make-up and survive a myriad of face kissing from congratulatory relatives.
But we’ve found one that has it all: this divine duo from Elemis consists of the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream (30ml) and Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream (30ml), with each boasting a shelfful of beauty awards for its plumping, firming and toning effects.
Although the set is geared towards mature skin, I found that you don’t have to be waging a war on wrinkles to experience its benefits. As a girl in my 20s, my biggest bugbear is a dull and tired-looking complexion; however, after using the Elemis night cream just once, I woke up with super-soft skin that instantly looked healthier, as if I’d been detox dieting for a week.
After applying the day cream, I found that I needed to use less make-up to illuminate my face. The light, non-greasy formula was easily absorbed by my skin and worked with my make-up as a primer. Plus, the hydrated effect lasted for the whole day (wave goodbye to caked concealer in the battle bewteen your skin and the elements).
If you’re concerned about pesky crows feet showing up on your wedding photos, you’ll love the plumping effect of the collagen formula, which gives skin a smooth and youthful appearance. Marine Cream’s combination of marine algae Padina Pavonica, Rose and Mimosa Absolutes and Gingko Biloba Liposomes delivers visible results within 15 days and is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkle depth by up to 78%.
This perfect pair is part of the new Elemis Treasures gift set range, launching just in time for the party season in September. So pop it on your Christmas list and start dropping hints now.
