My love affair with Elemis is now in full swing, especially since trying this duo from the brand. The Elemis Brighten and Resurface Cleansing Duo* consists of their Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing Facial Wash and a Soothing Apricot Toner.
The Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing Facial Wash is described as "a non-abrasive resurfacing cleanser boosted with patented Tri-Enzyme technology, galactoarabian and Brazilian babassu oil". I have heard many good things about the Tri-Enzyme range and this has not disappointed- it has quickly become my favourite cleanser and I plan to keep using it for a while. It smells divine and is a pleasure to apply to my skin- the consistency is quite runny and goes far so I use 2 pumps a day.
Although it's a cleanser/facial wash it is also an exfoliator as it simulates the skin's natural cell renewal cycle whilst gently exfoliating away dead skin cells. Since using this cleanser my skin has been so clear and looks so much brighter- I absolutely love this! As it is a resurfacing product you need to make sure that you wear a good SPF each day.
The Soothing Apricot Toner is "formulated with apricot extract to help soothe and harmonise sensitive, delicate and hormonal skin." This hasn't had the same wow factor as the cleanser but its a very nice product and smells lovely- of apricots as you'd imagine! I have been spraying the product onto a cotton pad and wiping over my skin, but it can also be used to refresh the skin by spraying it directly onto the face. It is an extremely gentle toner and suitable for extra-sensitive skin.
The duo is currently available for £29 and is worth £50- the cleanser is £29 on its own so you're basically getting the toner for free! It can be purchased here.
