Elemis FreshSkin Review | Skin Clear Face Wash & Treatment Gel, Deep Clean Face Mask & Magical Moisture Face Mask

Hi Guys!!

Firstly, let me apologise for one of the longest blog post titles ever! 

Before I get into the post just a quick reminder that I'm running a Christmas Giveaway where you can get your hands on some Elemis freshskin Goodies and more! Be sure to join! ENTER HERE!!

A little while back, I was lucky enough to receive some Elemis FreshSkin** goodies from the wonderful PR team at Elemis to try out and review, sadly because of the hectic time I've had at uni I just haven't had the time to sit down and write a full review of them until now! It does mean however, that I have thoroughly tried and tested these products and I'm able to give you an accurate account of my experience with these products! 

First up we've got the Skin Clear Purifying Face Wash.
It claims to help refresh and clear your complexion leaving your skin looking fresh and bright all day long!
Ingredients to note are Vitamin A, Zinc, Iris, White Willow Bark, Bergamot, Juniper, Lime, Cucumber, Cedar, Witch Hazel.
It is free from Parabens, SLS, SLES, DEA, Mineral Oils, Artificial Colours & Silicones.
I think this is absolutely brilliant! Whenever I have a breakout or my skin is feeling particularly oily, I reach to this and it cuts through all the oil without stripping your skin and making it dry. It smells super fresh and to really prove how amazing this is my boyfriend will steal it whenever he comes to visit as even he loves it! It visibly improves the appearance of breakouts in just one use and it genuinely does work in clearing up your skin! I honestly cannot fault this product.

To use along side the Face Wash we have the Skin Clear Treatment Gel.
It claims to help reduce blemishes without over drying the skin.
Ingredients to note are Salicylic Acid, Zinc, Vitamin A, Witch Hazel, Iris, Bergamot, Cedar, Lime, Cucumber, Juniper.
It is free from Parabens, SLS, SLES, DEA, Mineral Oils, Artificial Colours & Silicones.
I think this is pretty good, I would probably give it a 7 out of 10 as I actually find the face wash better at preventing spots, but I do enjoy using this when I've got a particularly nasty blemish as when it is used before bed by the time you wake up in the morning the blemish is visibly reduced. The one downside to this is that its pretty strong stuff and if you get it to near to your eyes the vapours do start to make your eyes water, so this may not be ideal for sensitive skin types!

Finally, we have the FreshSkin Face Mask Duo-  Purifying Face Mask (PF) & Quenching Face  Mask (QF).
It claims PF helps to draw out impurities and refine your skin, whilst the QF delivers instant moisture boost to dry skin and helps to soothe.
Ingredients to note PF: Natural Clay, Vitamin E, Frankincense, Goji berry. QF: Plum, Sweet Almond, Aloe Vera, Cranberry, Apple, White Lupin.
It is free from Parabens, SLS, SLES, DEA, Mineral Oils, Artificial Colours & Silicones.
I think that firstly these are both really lovely face masks for what they do. The Purifying Face Mask is a thick clay mask that is a little scary at first but once you've applied your generous sachet, left it for 10 -15 minutes and washed it off (no harsh scrubbing required this comes off easily with a wet warm flannel) it leaves your skin feeling soft, supple, and really clean. The Quenching Face Mask, is another thick creamy mask that smells fruity and has the consistency of a super thick body lotion. I can't say it really makes a noticeable difference to my skin but it does leave my face feeling super nourished and is a lovely treat once and awhile. One qualm I do have with this product is however, that at this current time you cannot buy these masks individually, which is such a shame as I do love the Deep Clean Purifying Face Mask and would love to have it in a nice tube rather than the sachets which I tend to waste about 1/4 of the product as I don't need the whole sachet to cover my face.

Let's hope Elemis sort out the Face Mask dilemma and continue to produce these truly effective products for the Teens to 20's market!

I hope you enjoyed today's post and liked the new style of review, I shall be sticking with this format from now on in as I feel it gives you guys a more accurate description of the product other than "the packaging is pretty and it smells nice!" 

Thanks for reading!

** These products were sent to me by Elemis PR for consideration of review, all opinions are 100% honest and my own.
