If you do a survey and ask people if they get enough sleep at night, most will say they don’t. Fact is, that’s how most of us are, constantly in a race against the clock, and sleep is usually the first thing to go. Well, the Elemis Peptide4 is to the rescue! With some magic the Elemis Peptide4 makes your skin look like you’ve slept 8 hours. If you can’t get the full amount of sleep, at least you can fake it!
I tried out the Peptide Thousand Flower Mask, the Eye Recovery Cream and the Night Recovery Cream-Oil. I received them as a gift from Elemis, it was not sponsored and the opinions on here are mine exclusively!
The Elemis Peptide4 comes with 4 products. I got to try 3 of them which I was mightily impressed with!
You’re probably wondering how these products do their magic. The whole range is inspired by the body’s inner clock and follows its natural triggers. At night our skin cells naturally renew and repair, when our sleep is interrupted, this affects our skin and the repair cycle gets interrupted too. With the help of Peptide4 which is made from four amino acids, the skin can get its refreshed and revitalised look back.
In addition to the Peptide4 ingredient, Elemis use two flower seed oils made exclusively for them. Night Scented Stock is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamin E. Star Avensis is rich in Omega-3 and Omega-6. Both these oils help the skin to be more hydrated and smoother and they help to reduce lines.
This cream is pure magic, my only complaint would be that I wish there was more product in the bottle! After only using it a couple of times, the circles under my eyes dramatically reduced. The whole appearance of my eyes changed to younger and less tired. And that’s after applying only a couple of times. You are supposed to apply it every morning and evening but I’ll be honest with you, I don’t always have the time to do everything in my skincare routine. So sometimes (more like often), things get skipped! I got into the habit of applying it once a day in the evening and I love the results!
Apply this cream every evening before you go to sleep to see your skin transform. With the Peptide4 Recovery Cream-Oil, the results weren’t as fast as the Eye Recovery Cream. But over a couple of days, I definitely noticed a difference. My skin had a glow and it felt firmer. One of the things my skin has been suffering from recently is dry skin– it’s probably due to the wintery weather and my skin getting older(: The Peptide4 Night Recovery Cream-Oil has really helped with it! After using it, my skin feels softer and more hydrated and I’m loving it!
The first time I used the mask I have to admit my kids got a little shock when they saw me! The mask is black in colour, something you don’t expect from the pretty purple packaging! The mask has the softest, buttery texture, which is not what you would expect from a black mask. Somehow my brain automatically associates a black mask with being rougher- possibly because of all the black peel-off masks that are trending now. Either way, the Thousand Flower Mask is a far cry from those masks. It is super soft and super luxurious.
Apply this once a week and leave on for 15 minutes. A little tip- be careful when removing the mask so that you don’t ruin any towels. My advice is to use cotton wool pads when cleaning it off, or even better, a black flannel! Aside from the colour, this is one of my current favourite masks. It smells amazing and makes my skin feel so soft and leaves it looking glowing. It’s luxury all the way and has become one of the staples in my skincare routine:)
The Elemis Peptide4 products are gold! Their only disadvantage is that they are on the pricey side. The products are generous and the way I see it is that over time it’s cheaper than going to the spa. And trust me, the Peptide4 products feel a lot like going to a spa. They leave the skin feeling healthier and more hydrated, something that my skin has needed for a long time! My only complaint is that I wish I would have more time in my day so that I can apply them as I should.
