Eleimis FreshSkin Discovery Kit Review

I’ve been recently trying out the Elemis FreshSkin Discovery Kit (£19.90)*, which is a skin care range aimed at late teens to early 20 something girls . It’s a set of 5 sample products from the FreshSkin range, which aims to give you clear, glowing skin. I really like these mini sets from Elemis where you can try a number of sample products before buying a full sized especially as I never know whether my skin is going to react to certain products.

Elemis FreshSkin Peachy Perfect Gentle Face Wash 30ml
This is a lovely hydrating face wash, which contains elderflowers, lemon and chicory extracts, which aims to leave your skin soft and glowing. This isn’t a foaming face wash but of a gentle everyday cleanser which does a great job of removing any make-up residue left on my face after my normal cleanse. Oddly this product doesn’t contain any peach extracts or smell of peach, it’s actually almost scent free. I can’t say I noticed a huge difference in the ‘glowy-ness’ of my complexion but if you’re on the market for a lovely simple face wash I’d definitely recommend this as it didn’t cause any reaction to my sensitive skin and overall did a good job of cleaning my face.

Elemis FreshSkin Glow Exfoliating Face Wash 30ml
A gentle exfoliating face wash containing cherry powder and jojoba beads, which act to gently polish and remove dead skin cells whilst leaving clean and free of impurities. I don’t tend to use exfoliators on my face and I tend to react to most products but I actually quite liked how gently this one was and it worked really nicely with the face wash. I probably wouldn’t re-purchase this one as I just don’t use exfoliators enough, but again, if you have sensitive skin this is a good exfoliator to go for.

Elemis FreshSkin Softly Softly Daily Moisturiser 15ml and Dreamy Sleep Night-Time Moisturiser 15ml
I think these two products were my favourite from the range as they smell so dreamy- the day cream contains rosehip seed oil and sweet almond oil and the night cream contains blackburrant seed oil and barley extract and yes the smell as delicious as they sound! I found both of these products lovely and light to apply and the day cream is a lovely base for make-up. I’ve probably used either one or both of these products for a good couple of weeks and even though they’re strong scented they didn’t break my skin out at all and my skin has felt lovely and hydrated even in this freezing cold weather. Out of the whole set I would definitely recommend purchasing these and will probably re-purchase myself, especially in the summer as the day cream has such a lovely, light consistency.

Elemis Magical Moisture Quenching Face Mask- 7ml Sachet 
This is a really lovely hydrating facial mask that contains white lupin, artic cranberry seed oil and apple extract and leaves your skin feeling smooth and soft. It's lovely and smooth to apply and gives an instant moisture boost to even the driest of skin.
