Elemis to the rescue!

So as you may be aware, it's still Winter here in good ol' Melbourne. However, I can feel Spring in the air and it is just around the corner, thank God! 

My skin has not coped with the harsh winds, nor the changes in temperature, from indoors to outdoors and vice versa. It has been calling out for help and I have found the perfect solution to bring my skin back to its pre-Winter hydrated state-Elemis!

I've been using Elemis for about two years now. I do love it. It's at a more reasonable price point, as compared to La Mer, which is just too expensive for me to even consider at the moment. I have sensitive, reactive skin with small patches of redness/couperose, so I need to be really careful with what I use. 

Really effective skincare is expensive, right? Well, I refuse to pay full price for skincare if I can help it. I turn to the online mecca of skincare, haircare and perfumery-strawberrynet.com

StrawberryNET is an online cosmetic store with a very wide selection of skincare lines, such as Elemis, Clarins and Chanel. It is so easy to order online and they offer FREE postage around the world! 

Every time I receive my order in the mail, it comes wrapped up in a white box which is tied with a pretty lilac bow. Now that I am a loyalty customer, I receive an extra 10% off their already heavily reduced prices.

I hopped online today and found the product in question which I'm hoping will be my saving grace. Daily Redness Relief 50ml by Elemis. This product claims to be a..."soothing, anti-redness treatment moisturiser that helps to reduce the daily appearance of redness and high colour. It contains "powerful Anti-Redness Complex to help reduce the flushed appearance of broken capillaries. A Phytoamine Biocomplex of Centella Asiatica, Meadowsweet and Amino Acids help to soothe the skin." 1

 

I shall keep you posted about my skin and the changes I see over time, in case any of you are in fact interested to try this out for yourself. I find reviews extremely helpful in making  choices, whether it be if I'm looking for a new mascara to use or skincare. 

Keep in touch, I'd love to hear from you. Feel free to ask me any questions you may have about this range or any other skincare questions and concerns. I am a qualified beauty therapist, for those of you who didn't know! I'm full of little surprises!! 

I've lost my voice at the moment and am terribly frustrated because I love talking! Let's hope I find it soon!!! Hope you are well and enjoying your weekend so far.

Yours in style,

Suzi x

    1. Once you shop, you can't stop....you'll be addicted just like me. I placed yet another order for some Jurlique blemish cream last night because I'm almost out. That's another prodcut I simply can't do without. It's amazing!
      Yes, I am busting for some sunshine!!! My skin is also heaps better in Summer.
