Skin Care Review: Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm – Best. Cleanser. Ever.



Ask any skin care professional — dermatologist or esthetician– what the basis for great skin care is, and they will tell you that you have to begin with an efficient cleanser. Why is cleansing your skin so important? We’ve got answers, including the best cleanser we have ever, ever, ever used.

  • 1. To remove the gunk of the day: Over the course of a day, your skin comes into contact with dirt, pollutants, and other various assorted “stuff”. Not to mention that if you have oily skin, sebum is producing and then of course there is that matter of the makeup you applied in the morning. It’s all gotta go!
  • 2. To keep your pores clean: Have you noticed your pores getting larger? No doubt that’s due to them being clogged. Regular cleansing insures that your pores are clean and that they don’t become enlarged. If you have acne, this is even more important.
  • 3. It can prevent premature aging: Research has shown that skin thrives and repairs itself at night. If it’s covered in makeup and and grime, it can’t very well breath and recover. Be sure to cleanse at night!
  • 4.  PM cleansing improves absorption of treatment products: Our bodies slow down when we sleep, but our oxygen output is higher. This is so important for our skin because it enable efficient absorption and penetration of any treatment products and moisturizers we apply before going to bed.
  • 5. Inhibiting excess oil production : If you are prone to acne or have oily skin, a good gentle cleanse in the morning can kill bacteria and normalize oil production.
  • Bonus: Damp skin tends to accept moisturizer more readily.

 

Now that you are armed with all that information, let me tell you about the best cleanser I have used in years —Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm.

My results:

Let me begin by telling you that using Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm is one of the most wonderful luxurious sensory experiences I have ever had from simply using a cleanser. The scent is aromatherapy at it best and the feel of the balm is lovely. This cleanser is best used by warming it in your hands and then gently massaging it into the skin (let the product do the work). After covering your entire face and neck (I use over my eyes even though instructions say not to, it does an amazing job of removing eye makeup)add water and massage a bit more. If this sounds like work, believe me it isn’t. You will love every moment of your cleanse. The only thing that could make it better was if you were in an esthetician’s bed having a facial…After cleansing,rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. You will find that this balm rinses easily, leaving no traces of oil.

My skin literally feels like velvet, it glows and smells amazing after using Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm.  Over the course of using this cleanser, (primarily at night because I want it to last forever) I can say that my skin always looks and feels soft and refreshed. I’m not even shy about going without makeup after I use this cleanser in the mornings.

I’m pretty much an ingredient freak, and I love that this cleanser isn’t full of “filler” ingredients. As a matter of fact, the first ingredient is sweet almond oil, which has a texture similar to the lipid barrier of the skin. Other ingredients are beautiful extracts, essences and oils.

For a balm, Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm, isn’t at all heavy, greasy or sticky. Rather it is almost silky in feel and texture. I’m in love with this cleanser, and as long as Elemis makes it, it will remain a constant in my cleansing routine.
