Our life is changing daily and so is the world around us. Development and industrialisation has led to great accomplishments but at a little cost. Busy city life plus the myriad ways of exposure to pollution has only meant more hard work for our beloved skin. There is only so much we can do to keep our skin looking fresh and radiant. Or so I thought until I stumbled across these beauties in a pot! I am talking about Elemis Cellular Recovery Skin Bliss Capsules.
It truly is the ultimate detox for your skin. Our skin goes through a natural detox every night and these capsules do an amazing job at giving it a helping hand. They are enriched with beautiful ingredients such as Moringa Oil, Rose Absolute and Lavender to create the ultimate anti-pollution serum. These aromas work together to release endorphins which gives your skin the feeling of ‘bliss’ and happiness.
Moringa Oil – a pure, satin-smooth oil which originates from Tanzania. It has considerably higher concentration of anti-oxidant power compared to many other cosmetic oils (its 3 times as longer lasting compared to macadamia and twice as strong as jojoba oil).
Rose Absolute – this aromatic essential oil is known for its ability to hydrate and soften skin while enhancing the feeling of well-being and giving your skin a natural youthful glow.
Lavender – this beautiful natural oil is known for its properties to heel and repair. The oil also promotes relaxation and helps to stimulate endorphins to de-stress and balance your skin.
The capsules come in two different colours and are to be used twice a day. The morning capsules are pink and are enriched with rose whereas the night capsules are green in colour and have lavender in them. The capsules are easy to use and should be applied on cleansed skin before moisturiser.
Simple twist of the tip of the capsule and warm the oil up by rubbing it in between your palms for a few seconds. Follow this by gently patting the oils into your face and neck.
- To achieve the full benefit of these oils, hold the palms close to your face and inhale in the aromas as recommended by Elemis.
- Massage in to the temple pressure points slowly using small circular movements with fingertips.
- Using firm finger pressure, sweep two fingers smoothly from the tip of the chin to the ears; from the nose along the cheekbones to the outer corner of the eyes, and finally from one side of the forehead to the other. Repeat until the serum is full absorbed.
- Lightly tap the entire face with ‘rain drop’ finger movements to stimulate local micro- circulation.
- Finally, massage excess serum into hands and then gently sweep the backs of the hands up the neck in a rolling motion.
My VerdictI can honestly say that these have made a very comfortable place in my all-time favourite products. After 4 weeks of use, my skin feels so soft and hydrated. My skin tends to get dehydrated really quickly which can then lead to sensitivity and irritation. These helped my skin not only plum up but also gave me a more radiant complexion. My skin is looking healthier and I can notice a visible difference. I will definitely be using these every few months to give my skin a boost!
