Elemis freshskin

I love a little Elemis - they were the first entry in the Mouth Hall of Fame and have consistently provided high quality, well-thought-out, must-have products.

Yesterday I attended the launch of their newest range - freshskin.

Aimed at teens - 20's, freshskin aims to not only fix those 'inbetweener' skins, but educate (refreshingly in a non-patronising way) younger peeps in the how-to's and how-not-to's.

Launching with a Gentle Face Wash, Exfoliating Face Wash, AM and PM Moisturisers, Eye Gel, Lip Balm, Cleansing Wipes and a genius Face Mask Duo that frankly, they need to make in an old, mature pack for the Mums of said teens - 20's, the range starts at a beyond reasonable £8.00 and goes up to £22.00.

With elemis's heritage and reputation I would spend that on my teenagers' skin - no hesitation.

I have given the products to one of my teenagers to trial and will be feeding back the outcome - if I can get more than a grunt out of him.

In the meantime if you want to get your hands on the ENTIRE range packaged in this far too adorable polka dot vanity case - worth £99.00 - keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming giveaway right here.

Elemis freshskin launches in the UK on 14th April.


  1. Not an unreasonable amount to spend to sort out a teens skin, when I was a teen, a long, long, ahem, long time ago I would have sold my kidney if it would have got me the cash to clear my skin.

    Looks like Elemis have saved a lot of teens their kidneys.

    Well done Elemis x

  2. I never new elemis were bringing out a range for young skin. I can't wait to try them!

  3. I would of loved this line when I was younger...My first was Clinique. Although that was not a bad line to begin with they did nothing for my color (yellow undertones but very light skinned)

  4. My last teenager has almost finished her teens, ie 18½, but I would have been glad to have had such a range of products available.

  5. Sadly I'm no longer a teenager, but I am intruged about this face mask duo, and the prices seem reasonable as well x

  6. With regret I must announce, I was younger, that the Elmis products I use, I got used with them is very good category

  7. How did your son get on? I am using the Elemis FreshSkin Mattifying Moisturiser and since I have oily/ combination skin I hoped under makeup before primer it'd be perfect but no! Once applied it feels quite drying no moisture benefit but then hits like an oil tanker slick on surface of skin a couple hours later!

  8. Just noticed scrutinising the ingredients in Elemis freshskin Mattifying Moisturiser it contains Shea Butter - as a combination/ oily skin type prone to breakouts I reached for this moisturiser but now worried it will only encourage my breakouts which in turn will exacerbate oil production...thoughts?
