I get samples all the time and very rarely do I like something I like so much I go out and buy the full sized thing. Very rarely.
I tried Elemis for the first time recently, and liked quite a few of their goods. I had a 30ml sample of the Elemis Pro Collagen Quartz Lifting Mask and fell in love – it made my skin feel plumped and smooth right away.
This is not cheap! It cost me £45 smackers:
It feels like a normal creamy-white-gel that you slap on for 10-15 minutes or you can apply it and leave it over night.
I used this quite a few times with the sample I had and I always noticed how my skin looked smooth and plump, with a glow. The product turns to a jelly type texture after a while – you can almost rub it off (although you are supposed to just wash it off after).
As we age, Collagen and Elastin degenerate within the skin, resulting in deep wrinkles and the loss of firmness and elasticity. This luxurious cream mask combines the power of Quartz with Padina Pavonica, adaptogenic Noni, Moringa and Argan Tree Oil to instantly uplift and hydrate the skin, minimising the signs of ageing for a more youthful, firmer appearance.
I am also trying out the Pro Collagen Marine Cream which I am very impressed with. If you get a chance to sample this mask then make sure you do – you can get the samples of eBay for around £7-8 and they will last you a month, with use twice a week.
