Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Face Oil


Any addition to the Elemis Pro-Collagen 'family' is big, big news. The original Pro-Collagen cream is an icon (we know that word's bandied about, but it happens to be true in this case) – and pretty much all incarnations of Elemis co-founder Noella Gabriel's Pro-Collagen formulation have wowed our testers, over the years, scooping various Anti-Ageing Beauty Bible Awards.

So: if you like a facial oil – or you just love Pro-Collagen and want to experience its benefits in a new oil formulation – get clicking. First off, we have to tell you it smells just like the aromatic Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm (read our original review of that here), which we completely love. The experience, then, kicks off with a treat for the senses – and continues with the texture of the oil itself, which is velvety but doesn't sit on the surface, sinking right into skin.

The anti-ageing ingredients include a complex of seaweeds – including the famous Padina Pavonica seaweed, alongside golden seaweed and something that glories in the name of 'Roaring water Kelp', while white poppy seed oil works to plump up skin and leave it looking glow-y.

An utter pleasure to use. And whenever you use a product diligently, that's when you'll see benefits. With this, you're half-way there from the first drop.
