If you asked me which product I would choose to take to a desert island, I would be inclined to opt for the Pro-collagen Marine Cream from Elemis (either that or a very good hair mask!). It’s an every day classic product that feels lovely on your skin as is instantly absorbed, brightening your complexion almost instantly. It smells delicious – albeit subtle – and lasts a long time as you only need to apply it sparingly. My skin tends to get dehydrated quite easily – with central heating and cold weather in the winter months and in the sunshine in the summer – so it’s a really good product for me. On a more scientific note, the Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkle depth by up to 78%, and increase hydration and moisture levels by up to 45% (according to Independent Clinical Trials conducted in 2003), making it a powerful anti-ageing cream that provides a progressive lifting effect through increased collagen support. Its key ingredients are the marine algae Padina Pavonica, Rose and Mimosa Absolutes, and Gingko Biloba Liposomes. Use if for a couple of weeks and you should start to see results.
