Elemis Biotec Energising Day and Night Creams


Yes, we’re all looking for long-term age-defying results from our skincare. But what we also always want from a cream or serum is to look in the mirror and see skin looking just that bit more radiant, NOW. The Elemis BIOTEC collection promises to ‘switch your skin back on’, and to that end we were impressed from the get-go with these.

They’re ‘scientifically proven to increase cell energy’– but as ever, what we’re concerned about is what we see and feel. The BIOTEC creams absolutely deliver: depress the nozzle, and the two chambers (featuring atrio of skin-friendly acids, ‘electrolyte solution’, moisture complex and their ‘Bio-Energy Complex’ combine.

Smooth into skin and no question: it looks more radiant and revitalised, feels smooth and plumped (and, in the case of the Day Cream, is beautifully prepped for  make-up, if you wait a few minutes).

They come with a ‘luxe’ price tag – and we’ll certainly be putting BIOTEC through its paces with our Beauty Bible testers, to assess the longer-term benefits. But meanwhile? We’ve an inkling these could end up giving Elemis’s legendary Pro-Collagen a run for its money.
