Ready to get started? Here’s our Editor’s Fast 15 Favorites:
Formulated with powerful marine and plant actives, such as Padina Pavonica, Chlorella and Ginkgo Biloba, this cream delivers a trifecta of results including increased hydration, younger looking skin and fantastic everyday protection against sun damage. Give it two weeks (according to third party, independent clinical trials) and 100% of testers agreed this was the most effective anti-ageing cream they’ve ever used. As in ever…
With a tasty combo of Kombucha, Ginger and Green Tea seed oil, this hydrating makeup primer sounds good enough to eat. In fact, it’s packed full of prebiotic-infused ingredients as well as illuminating micro-minerals that make it not just an award winning makeup primer, but a great daily moisturizer and skin brightener.
When all that harsh, AC air is making you wish for supple skin, take your skin and senses to the tropics. Mineral-rich salts have been infused with Hibiscus, Tahitian Monoi oil and Frangipani flowers (aka the Plumeria). Like your own mini-vacation…anytime you like.
Shopping for a great gift for a Mum-to-be? Or maybe that expectant person is you? This gift set contains items that have been carefully curated by the Elemis staff to contain items that are perfect for pregnancy self-care. All items have been tested and completely safe to use during pregnancy and beyond. Set includes a Peptide plumping pillow facial, pro-collagen eye masks, a skin nourishing milk bath and a Japanese Camellia body oil that will combat stretch marks and keep that tummy skin supple. Oh and did we mention it comes in a limited edition bag designed by Scamp & Dude with the signature color-infused leopard print the fashion house is known for? I think we just did.
To paraphrase a classic song “every girl’s crazy about a sharp groomed man”. This collab with British bag designer Hayley Menzies is the upgrade the man in your life will appreciate. Formulated with balanced and effective ingredients such as Micellar technology, superfood Cica and more, this 5-piece collection is the perfect pampering package for the fav guy in your life.
A lot of attention is paid on how to combat summer’s effect on our delicate skin (and rightly so!). But there is another important area of delicate skin that deserves just as much attention. This weekly, intensive hair and scalp mask is made to restore the softness and strength that summer heat’s harsh elements unleash on us, making our hair dry and damaged. Bonus, it also contains natural pink clay that helps remove product built up while Sesame, Moringa, Macadamia, Hibiscus flower and Frangipani oils work to restore the resilience of your hair from the inside out.
Looking for a great, last minute gift? This cute combo contains an oh-so-pretty scented yet powerful Rose hydro mist (perfect for that anytime pick-me-up) and a limited edition Rose, Oud and Amber Candle.
Sink into luxe vibes with the Neroli blossom bath & shower milk that’s infused with essential oils that smell as beautifully as they work. Follow up with the body cream that contains not just Neroli but Spanish Vine Leaf and omega-rich Grapeseed oil that will keep your skin hydrated and smooth.
Body Performance Duo $132
For those who lead an active lifestyle, this full-body reboot duo is for you. The Aching Muscle Super Soak is enriched with recuperative Birch, Juniper, Clove, Alpine Lavender, Wild Thyme and Blue Chamomile that will take warm, tired, overworked muscles to a relaxing paradise. Follow up with the Toning Body Moisturizer that harnesses the power of Nigari Salt, Jania Rubens and additional toning ingredients that are clinically proven to reduce the appearance of dimpling and/or cellulite.
Balancing Essentials Collection (online exclusive) $129.50
Summer can be a terrible conundrum for oily, blemish-prone and even combination skin. Piling on the heavy moisturizers and oils in an attempt to counter the season’s elements can lead to congested, dull skin and even worse…cluster breakouts. This four-piece set is curated specifically to rebalance the skin’s natural pH level, contain excess surface oils, remove impurities, all while making sure skin stays hydrated without causing the breakouts.
They say the eyes are the window to the soul, so if yours are looking red, dry and puffy it’s time to take big action…with a little help from this tiny tube. Small enough for carrying in your day purse, this Matcha-infused, cooling eye gel has Kiwi and Honeydew melon as well as a natural prebiotic helps nourish the delicate eye area while it reduces puffiness. It can be used throughout the day both under and over makeup.
Traveling for the summer? Don’t forget to include this in your carry on. At 60 ml (that’s about 2 ounces) it’s under the 3oz travel mandate. You’ll be so glad you did as this revitalizing spray containing Australian Tea Tree Essential oil + purified water that not only soothes but is a natural antiseptic and anti-bacterial to boot!
The summer comes with a lot of indulgences, some of which we are better at resisting than others. If you’re looking to help get your skin back to a smoother, softer physique, consider this your cellulite detox. The gentle body brush and Cellutox Active Body Oil combine the power of exfoliation and richness of Sea Buckthorn, Juniper and Lemon to both soften and renew while deterring that stubborn cellulite.
This gift kit is chock full of six summertime staples you (or the lucky loved one who receives this as a gift) will absolutely adore. Pro-collagen cleansers, moisturizers, recovery creams and papaya peels…this six piece collection has a little something to satisfy us all in those warm summer days ahead.
For the serious gym rat we all know and love, this collection of active skin and bodycare essentials contains items that work as hard as they do. Warm-up massage balms, energizing cleansers, calming cleansers and Superfood mists and juice. All comes together in the Sweaty Betty utility essentials bag, which is ideally sized to stash-and-go in a standard size gym bag.
And that’s our list! Did you find a treasure trove of goodies to claim for your winter? No? Well no worries! There are plenty more gorgeous items to be had at the Elemis Summer Celebration which includes 25% Off sitewide on skincare items. And don’t forget about that FREE Glow-Getters Duo ($94 value) with any order of $150+ between now and 6/23. All this when you use the code SUMMER.
