Our Elemis Favourites

Our favourite cleansing balm, facial oil, and the priming moisturiser we can't live without

We are big fans of ELEMIS at Douceur, and many of their products are permanent fixtures in our bathrooms. These are our current favourites (some old, some new to us, but all tried and tested). We also have a 25% discount code for you (some T&Cs apply –  scroll down to check): DOUCEUR25. So it’s the perfect time to try something new.

ps: can we just take a moment for the? Worth £551.00 it contains 25 of their most popular products for face and body, including full-size moisturiser.

pps: is literally heaven in a bottle. The SMELL.

I have long been a fan of cleansing balms (I have not used any other type of cleanser since converting). I actually really love the actual process of applying it and (time allowing) massaging it into my skin. The is just so lovely to use (and don’t get me started on that scent…). It nourishes as a balm, easily removes all traces of makeup as a cleansing oil, and hydrates as a cleansing milk (hence that lack of tightness afterwards, which I used to experience with other cleansers). I use the ELEMIS cloth (that comes with the cleanser) and warm water to remove the balm. It always feels a little bit like a mini facial. There are cheaper versions out there, but for me, this is the one.
There is also the Rose version, and the newest addtion, (which I cannot wait to try). Same product, just different scents.

This is the only product that was completely new to me, and to be honest I wasn’t entirely sure what it was. It’s basically a super-quick (I’m not interested in anything labour-intensive when it comes to my skincare routine) extra step which is really hydrating. And by adding it to your routine, it maximises the efficiently of any of the products you apply afterwards. Clever huh? It also feels and smells gorgeous when applied. I’m converted.

Now I love a facial oil, and this this award-winning Superfood (yes, it actually contains superfoods – broccoli, rosehip, flaxseed and Daikon radish, amongst others) one does not disappoint. Light, non-greasy (this is a non-negotiable for me) and easily absorbed, this nourishing facial oil definitely leaves my skin looking and feel more radiant and glowing. It’s intended for the day, but sometimes also I use it at night for an extra boost.

This is quite possibly my favourite ELEMIS product ever (with the coming in a very close second). For such an unassuming little bottle, the results you get are seriously impressive. If you like your skin dewy and you’re always chasing ‘that glow’ (me, always!), this is for you. You only need a small amount, and the dewiness is immediate. I have lost count of the amount of times people people have commented on my skin when I’ve used this. So I am currently using it daily (with just mascara and blush, no foundation).
