We all know the importance of a good night’s sleep in helping you look and feel great, so what better than a night cream to pop on and wake up feeling ready to take on the world? Today I’m reviewing an award-winning product by Elemis which is also one of their bestsellers- Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream. that I’ve been using religiously for the past two months.
Elemis is an award-winning British brand skincare specialist, used in professional spas and beauty salons. I’ve been using Elemis skincare for quite some time now and Elemis has become a staple in my day and night skincare routines. I’ve tried their facial creams, frangipani monoi salt glow, flash balm, cleansing balm, cleansing milk, skin buff and face masks etc.
If you want to firm, smooth and replenish your skin, all while you get your 8 hours of beauty sleep a night, Elemis say that this cream is for you. This oxygenating night cream, packed with ingredients hoping to promote collagen, claims to help with your skin’s natural regeneration process. It’s suitable for all skin types so that you wake up with firmer looking skin whilst helping to fight signs of premature aging.
Developed with the revolutionary Padina Pavonica, this luxury, moisture rich night cream is clinically proven to help increase oxygen levels in the skin and assist the skin’s natural regeneration process. After 28 days usage, the skin’s oxygen levels are increased by up to 41%, to help accelerate dermal respiration. Containing Laminaria Digitata and Red Coral, the tell-tale signs of premature aging are delayed, whilst the skins’ natural collagen network is supported, helping to promote skin elasticity and hydration.
The packaging of the cream is in a classy silver/grayish tub, with silver hardware. You need to unscrew the lid open to have access to the product. Like I have always mentioned to you, in all my previous reviews, I adore their classy, clean and sophisticated packaging. It is so lovely to look at as they lie in my bathroom cabinet. I am a massive fan of great packaging! And this also tops my list of luxurious skin care packaging. However, I wish it came in a pump or maybe a tube since that makes it a bit more hygienic. Nevertheless, I understand that its basically due to the texture of the cream which has made Elemis sell it inside a tub.
Coming to the product now, it is a white thick cream, that glides smoothly on the face. If I compare it to the Marine Day cream, this is more heavy based and that is a bit more gel-based cream. This has a lovely fragrance; however, the Marine Cream is slightly more fragranced than this particular cream.
I’m usually a bit put off by night creams as they can be thick and heavy on the skin. This Elemis cream, however, is very luxurious – it’s not too thick and sinks into the skin effortlessly without leaving it feeling greasy or oily. It has definitely left my skin feeling more nourished; I wake up in the morning with a certain radiance that implies my skin is far better hydrated. After just a week of use, my skin had started feeling a little firmer, and very smooth to the touch. I’ve been using it for almost two months now and the redness in my cheeks has also calmed down, leaving an even and healthier looking complexion. The only downside is it is very pricey so I’m not sure I can justify buying another pot – it’s a good job a little goes a long way!

- Price is a definite con, but you will be able to locate these products at a cheaper price online.
Looking at the facts we really can’t deny that Elemis have done their homework and there is some seriously savvy-science in this little pot of joy. Pro-collagen and moisture-boosting claims get a massive tick from me. Antioxidant properties and potential UV-protecting extracts may help keep environmental stresses from stealing our youthful appearance, while hydration helps plump out skin (and wrinkles with it!). I’m really enjoying using this cream and I would love to buy it again.
