Elemis Total Glow Moisturiser for Face & Body

Monday, 26 May 2014

Hello Beauties! I hope your all having a lovely relaxing Bank Holiday Monday today and aren't too upset that it's work again tomorrow (it's a 4 day week so you can't complain really!). I'm not too upset that the Bank Holiday is over as tomorrow I'm going out for dinner with my lovely blogging buddy Kimberley from Kimberley's Beauty Blog, I'm really looking forward too it as it will be lovely to catch up before I leave London :(. 

Anyway, Today I thought I'd tell you about the Elemis Total Glow Range*, as they've released the perfect products to get Summer ready! The Elemis Total Glow Range is made up of two gradual tanners - a body moisturiser with gradual tanner, and one for your face too. 

I've never really been one for gradual tanners, mainly because I'm so terrible at remembering to moisturise every day or ever really but since trying this body lotion, I've been regularly taking the time to moisturiser with this lotion and I've really noticed a difference in my skin. I spend so long looking after the skin on my face, so I don't really know why I've been neglecting my body for so long! 

The Elemis Total Glow Body Lotion contains green tea extract which is naturally rich in protective antioxidants, helping to improve skin tone and texture. It also contains Elderberry Seed Oil and Abyssinian Oil to help deeply hydrate your skin and improve elasticity. Usually, I'm not really swayed by all of these natural claims, but with this product Elemis have really got their ingredients right. Since using this, the skin on my body has been softer that it's ever been and my skin tone has really evened out and improved. 

But, does it give you a tan? It didn't really give me a super dark tan which I would expect from instant tanners and spray tans, etc. However, it did give me a lovely warm glow which is easy to maintain. Overall, it just made me look a lot healthier. My skin was glowing and super soft, and as an added bonus, it smells lovely too! I'd say this is a bit like a permanent tinted moisturiser for your skin in a way, it leaves your skin looking glowing and evens out your skin, kind of like a tinted moisturiser would give you coverage. 

I would say that it's best to use this tan daily though, if you want to build up more of a colour, but when a product is so lovely to use, and it sinks in so quickly, that's not really an issue for me. 

Elemis have also released a gradual tanning face moisturiser as part of this range, which I think is amazing as I'd never want to put body moisturiser on my face. The face moisturiser is a lot like the body moisturiser in that it's super hydrating and it leaves your skin with a lovely bronze glow, but I found that the face moisturiser also had some added benefits. 

The moisturiser is a light cream, but don't be fooled, this is just as moisturising as a thick cream but it sinks in a lot quicker and feels a lot lighter on your skin. I found that after using this moisturiser for a few days, my face had started to develop a subtle bronze glow and I generally looked a lot healthier. My skin was glowing and my skin tone had evened out slightly which is something I always look for as my previous acne years have left my skin in a terrible state. I also love this moisturiser as it doesn't clog your pores when you use it. I was slightly doubtful at first as it is a thicker cream than what I would normally use, but after using this my skin looked a lot better than it does after using my regular moisturiser. 

Overall, I think this is a lovely range from Elemis and certainly one I'll be getting a lot of use from over the coming Summer months!

Lots of Love,
