Elemis Freshskin - for teens and tweens!

Products especially formulated for younger skin? Yes please!

You usually don't come across products catering for younger skin specifically, do you? I in fact think, this is a better way to keep skin healthy and supple and prevent it from ageing. Precaution is always better than cure you see. 

I have three products from Elemis Fresh Skin range including a Night Time Moisturiser, an Exfoliating Face wash and a Soothing Eye Serum

First of all, the hot pink packaging is very appropriate for the age group towards which it is catered, namely teens and tweens. Call me vain but I always get attracted to products based on how they look superficially and this scores full marks in that area.


Starting with my favourite product, the Skin Glow Exfoliating Face Wash(£12). This baby is a stunner to be honest. Unlike any other facial exfoliators I have tried till date, this one contains cherry powder and jojoba beads which are very finely included in the gel like face wash.

The liquid is of a very good consistency and not abrasive at all. I like to massage it in circular motions for about a minute or so first thing in the morning or at the end of the day after cleansing and I am left with brand new skin every single time. Unlike other exfoliators, this is not a hit or a miss as it works consistently every time I use it.

You know the feeling you have at times when you feel your skin is buried under layers of dead skin cells, impurities and acne scars? This is just perfect to take away all those nasties and reveal fresher looking skin.

Two thumbs up!


The Dreamy Sleep Night Time Moisturiser(£22) is what I like to use after I have exfoliated my face and I know its squeaky clean. This is a light textured fluffy cream and you only need a pea sized amount to cover a full face and neck. It's consistency makes it easy to spread hence it is likely to last a very long time. 

This insures my skin is thoroughly hydrated at night so I can wake up with glowing skin in the morning. It gives an instant glow to the face and has a nice herbal smell to it. It contains vitamin A, C and E as well as Black current seed and Barley extract. 

I have been suffering from dry, flaky and irritated skin due to the weather change and my allergies and this has helped immensely in gradually bringing my skin back to normal. Use this in moderation though (one pea sized squirt) as I initially used two pumps as I like to overdo things and this did cause a little breakout.


The Tired Eyes Soothing Eye Rescue(£15) is my least favourite from the lot. It is pretty good at tightening the under eye area but I do not see any refreshing effects after using this. Plus I like my under eye creams to be extremely moisturizing and this having a gel like consistency, gets absorbed into the skin pretty quickly leaving the area a tiny bit dry.

However, I like its tightening and firming effects, as I do suffer from fine lines and puffy eye bags. so I tend to use this a base and like to top it up with a bit of moisturiser. I have noticed my concealer creases a little less after using this as a base.

How interestinggg! I've never heard of this brand, and who would have thought of targetting younger skin? What a great idea! But I wonder why the eye cream isn't as moisturizing? Aging skin or not, I think an eye cream should always keep such a sensitive area moist

@Hussy - Skincare for young skin is rare right? I am sure the eye gel is meant to be moisturising, but it does not do it for me.

I have tried the exfoliating face wash and I agree that is a hell of a gem!

I am pretty tempted to try out the Eye Gel now as the tigheting effects would really help my under eye area.
