Elemis TSV QVC May 2013- Top to Toe Collection

Howdy Lovelies, I've got a little bit of skin care for you today, thought I'd show you some Elemis goodies that I ordered from QVC last week (as I am a complete SLAVE to the channel!).

Now this delightful bundle of treats was a TSV and sold under the glamorously long title of the 'Elemis 7 Piece Top to Toe Luxury Radiance Collection' and I got to welcome this home by simply handing over a mere £51.72 (plus p&p) and my mini spa kit was with me three days later. Considering the amount of full size products included, it is (in my book anyway) a canny little bargain indeed.

The kit contains 

Pro Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm (50ml, full size)
Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm (30g... special qvc smaller size)
Pro Collagen Marine Cream (15ml, travel size)
Skin Nourishing Shower Cream (300ml, full size)
Pro Radiance Hand and Nail Cream (100ml, full size)
Frangipani Monoi Body Oil (35ml, travel size)
Cellular Recovery Skin Bliss Capsules (14 capsules)
Cleansing Cloth
And a smart little cosmetic bag to keep it all together 

Great vals eh?




I didn't NEED any of this stuff reaaaally as I have the marine cream, the cleansing balm, the shower cream and monoi oil BUT Elemis always gets my attention and I get muchos anxiety when  my stashes of products I love start to diminish, (hence my drawer stuffed full with neatly packed with FOUR 'spare' pots of Pro Collagen Marine Cream... you know, just in case) You always need 'back up' guys and dolls... always. 

Once I realised the kit contained the new flash balm and cellular recovery capsules I couldn't of been held back by anything, not wild bulls... (or even the inevitable potential eye rolling reaction from thee husband)

Now I'm going to save gushing about my love for the Cellular Capsules for another post... seriously need to give them pearls of joy their own spotlight :)

I have to share my love (AGAIN) the Pro Collagen Marine Cream, its a beautiful rich consistency yet it's air light on the skin, it sinks in immediately. You want fresh plumped up hydration? Then this is the magic potion. I have sensitive combination skin that's prone to break outs (yes a full house of perks!!) and the marine cream does not aggravate nor clog my pores which is an absolute first... And I've had flings with many a moisturiser like!

The Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm is a fairly new love affair, twas only launched in April and I of course ordered on its launch date... look I'm loyal to what I love peeps :) Its like waxy buttery formulation in the tub but it warms and melts to an oil on your skin, which in turn when mixed with water is transformed to a milky cleanser. Make up and and any nasties on your face are dissolved and disintegrated and your skin is left nourished and deep down clean.
Oh and it can be used as a mask too... full on pamper sesh in bath, apply to face and cover with hot cloth... inhale the aromas and just imagine you are anywhere you mind wants to take you... aaaand relaaaaax!


I will give a spesh mention to the Flash Balm which can be used as a light moisturiser or as a primer before make up... I've only used this a few a times so couldn't review this fully yet but I'm loving the fresh citrus scent and it does seem to reflect the light from your face- not in a shimmery glitzy way (god no) think more dewy and glowy... a picture of radiance from within! (so disappointing that the mental images I have of myself can often be shattered when my eyes meet a mirror like but heeey that's how the balm makes me feel and look!)
Surely priceless?



For anyone who hasn't tried the Frangipani Monoi Body Oil before I urge you to do so... Not being bossy here BUT you so need it in your bathroom and I think it will improve your life! Ok ok so perhaps I'm being a touch dramatic there (it's me nature!) but it really is a lovely product. It's a solid wax like formula in the bottle that you melt down (turn hot tap on... fill sink... simples) into the most deliciously aromatic oil that can be used in your bath or on your body or as luxiourious cuticle treatment.
 I tend to apply it to wet hair after washing (skip conditioner) then go to bed... wake in the morning and wash/condition as per and you will have the softest, shiniest sweetest smelling hair EVAAAAH! I only do this like once a fortnight and a little really does go a long away so even this travel size can see you through a good while.


The Nourishing Shower Cream is a staple and a constant in my cupboard, leaves skin ultra clean and super soft, its my 'go to' when I fancy a little extra loving... And I'm still talking skin care here (mucky pups!)

The Illuminating Hand Cream I'm excited by and I'm going to use it today for the first time... hopefully it will do as it promises (I have every faith Elemis!) and my Nails of The Day posts will be over run with comments like... "ooh Kate, forget that gorgeous new colour you're wearing, how the hell do your hands look so spectacular??"  A girls got to set the bar hasn't she?

So what are our thoughts on this? Anyone tried anything? If you're new to the brand or fancying trying anything you can read more and  my review on the Pro Collagen Skincare Set HERE
