Elemis Cellular Recovery Skin Bliss Capsules
Advantages: Countless benefits to the skin
Disadvantages: Exceptionally high cost
On a recent visit to the beauticians, I asked if she knew of any skin boosting products that could give my skin a bit of a lift. Through stress and one thing and another, over recent months my skin had started to look a little dull and felt a little dehydrated. I didn't want to be entering into the winter months already on a back foot, as my skin really does suffer with the cold. She suggested I tried the Elemis skin bliss capsules. Already a fan of Elemis products, I know how well they seem to work on my skin. I also know how expensive they are and having fallen foul of salon prices before, I decided to take a look on the internet when I got home. I'm so glad I did! For 60 capsules you are looking at a retail price of around £60, and here is the worst part, you need 2 capsules a day! I shopped around online and manage to find a great deal from QVC of all places, where I got a week's supply of capsules, a rose exfoliator (rose works wonders for my skin), and an illuminating flash balm for around £35. This was a better option for me as it allowed me to try the capsules and a few other products for half the price.
Despite the ridiculously high price, I really do rate this product, so much so that after only 4 days of using the product I bought a month's supply (and told my husband they were only £15!). The difference to my skin in only a few days was dramatic. It seemed to come to life and literally glowed. My skin has honestly never looked so good.
It's clear to me why these little wonder capsules won the Anti-Ageing Beauty Bible award. Although the capsules are marked as being for Mature skin, I would honestly dispute this, and say yes they will undoubtedly be an anti-ageing product, they are also suitable for all skin types. The Moringa oil within the capsules, penetrate deeply into the skin and help to retain the moisture of the skin, reduce wrinkles and remove skin blemishes (I can vouch for the last one!). Interestingly when I have googled Moringa Oil, it is reportedly well known in India to treat acne. I suffer from Rosacea and my skin at the moment looks like I have normal skin and do not suffer with any skin condition at all, it's glowing, and I truly believe it is solely because of these capsules. If it does this for my problem skin, I wonder what the results would be for someone with normal skin - supermodels beware!
The antioxidants within the capsules also work to clean the skin cells of harmful toxins, which again will provide the skin with a clear and glowing complexion. Elemis have suggested using these capsules alongside the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream, which is also super expensive but I've heard amazing things about that too. I've yet to try it but its definitely on my wish list. I have found however, that after cleansing and toning, I apply the skin bliss capsules to the skin instead of a moisturiser and this has been enough. My skin feels instantly hydrated and I wouldn't say a moisturiser was needed. Because of the cost of these capsules though, I will be alternating between using the capsules and I may invest in the marine cream for the times when I am not using the skin bliss capsules.
I seem to have gone on about how amazing these capsules are without actually explaining the difference I have noticed in my skin, so I will list the benefits I have noticed (after 5 weeks):
Reduced (hardly have any) black pores,
Increased elasticity of the skin,
Increased hydration of the skin,
General improved visibility of the tone (given a naturally dewy glow),
Reduction (from severe rosacea to no blemishes / marks) of blemishes.
Using the capsules is easy. The are two different coloured capsules, pink and green; pink is for a morning, green for an evening. The difference is the oil within them. The pink contains an extract of rose (which works incredibly well for my skin), and the green contains lavender, which works to calm the skin before bed, but I find the scent quite relaxing and I apply just before I go to bed. The oils used both in the morning and an evening are both absorbed quickly and do not leave the skin with any type of oily residue.
This product really is a wonder item, it produces a number of improvements / benefits to the skin in one product. I don't know of anything like this on the market.
Recommended, if you can face the cost.
Summary: 5 stars
