If there is one thing Elemis do really well, apart from making great skin care, it's knowing how to put their great skin care together in adorably packaged gift sets. Whether it's to sell direct or through QVC.
I could have easily mistaken the Elemis Pro-Collagen Treats set (had the press release not mentioned Mother's Day) as a bespoke, tailor-made gift set for me personally, as it combines two of my all-time favourite Elemis products. A full size Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm and a full size Pro-Collagen Advanced Eye Treatment. Beautifully presented in a white vanity case with a silver lid.
I won't discuss the products in any great detail here, as you can read my original reviews of the products for that, but very briefly, the Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm is a beautifully scented soft balm cleanser, with 9 essential oils and of course the hero 'Pro-Collagen' ingredient padina pavonica. It's a fantastic cleansing balm but can also be left on as a treatment mask. The Pro-Collagen Advanced Eye Treatment is a lightweight but super-hydrating anti-ageing serum for the eye area, which can be used alone or underneath an eye cream, depending on your skin type. It targets darkness, lines & wrinkles.
Retailing at £49. It would make a perfect Mother's Day gift or if you're a fan of both of the products, you can buy it for yourself as you make a massive saving of £29.50 compared to buying both products separately.
