It’s been a while since the last time that I talked about a cream that I like. And today, surprise, surprise … I’m going to talk about one – the Elemis Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream.
This cream came in the Lookfantastic Crackers, and I’m so happy about it. Although this was supposed to be to try the product, I have to say that Lookfantastic was nice because they offer this cream in a container with 15ml, which at first seems little but I have to say that using it only at night (it’s, after all, a night cream) it will last a lot of time.
What it is: ‘The night is skin’s optimal time to regenerate, so make it count. This clinically proven night cream is formulated with an exceptional blend of Laminaria Digitata and Red Algae to help maintain optimum skin condition, whilst Padina Pavonica helps improve the appearance of skin suppleness, firmness and elasticity. Also infused with nourishing, antioxidant-rich Sesame and Avocado Oils, this overnight hero targets the signs of ageing to reveal a radiant, firmer-looking complexion upon waking’.
– Laminara Digitata Extract: absorbs both oil and water, making it an excellent all-around base.
– Red Algae: Composed of a number of trace elements such as Calcium, Zinc and Magnesium, this marine active is effective with improve the overall appearance of skin.
– Padina Pavonica: A brown algae found on the Mediterranean coast that is known to support the feeling of hydration.
I’ve been using it, after cleansing my skin at night, only a pea-size amount (it’s more than enough), and I like to warm it in my hands before applying it to my face, neck, and sometimes décolleté. The Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream glides on the skin beautifully and leaves it feeling soft, smooth, and moisturized.
In the morning, my skin feels plumped, and hydrated, and so soft. I have sensitive skin, and I have to say that this product does have a strong fragrance which left me a little afraid. But I noticed that my skin does like this cream, and the scent does not irritate my skin. It doesn’t bother me at all. If it helps, after a couple of minutes, the fragrance is dissipated.
I also have oily skin. That’s a concern when it comes to night creams because this type of creams tends to be richer. But I do not feel my skin oilier when I apply this cream. It provides the right amount of moisture. Even on the next day, my skin is smooth and not oilier at all. So, in my opinion, this cream can be used by all skin types but of course, I always advise you to, if possible, try a sample to see how well your skin reacts.
