Elemis SOS Emergency Cream Review
First of all I’m sorry I’ve been MIA lately! I’ve had a few things to catch up on this week so I haven’t posted as regularly as I normally would! Never fear though readers, you now have my full undivided attention. 🙂
So today I’m sharing my thoughts on this little gem of a product, which is something I’ve used before (featured in my ‘Winter Skin Care Products’ post) and that is the Elemis SOS Emergency Cream!
I’m sad to say that my skin and I are not friends right now! Recently it has become very dry and agitated, and I’m still trying to find the cause of the problem. 🙁 I’ve had to give up on wearing any face products aside from E45 and this Elemis SOS Emergency Cream.
The Elemis SOS Emergency Cream comes in a slick silver tube with a plastic lid and hygienic pump. It fits easily into my makeup bag and is travel friendly, which is handy during times like these as I can keep it with me at all times!
The texture of the Elemis SOS Emergency Cream itself is more a thick gel rather than cream – a little goes a very long way! It is quite rich and a little sticky but you do feel a soothing sensation once you’ve applied it!
It claims to “provide the most effective solution for stressed, hormonal or irritated skins and to restore the skin’s natural balance.” This is something which I do agree with as I have already noticed my skin has improved significantly from daily use!
The scent of the moisturiser is quite overpowering at first use, but you soon get used to this and it becomes less noticeable! The smell will be due to the selection of interesting ingredients which includes Amino Acids, Lavender Absolute, Willow, Centella Asiatica and Myrrh.
I use this in the morning and at night after I’ve cleansed my face and apply on the areas which I find particularly problematic. You can reapply this as often as you need to though!
Overall I’m really impressed with this Elemis SOS Emergency Cream! I love that it’s relieving the redness and irritation which I’ve been having and at a rapid rate too!
The only tiny problem that I have with it is the lid! It may seem silly to even mention this, but just to let you know it’s not particularly secure and I’ve often found it rattling around in my bag. Aside from this though it gets a big thumbs up from me!
Hope you enjoyed my Elemis SOS Emergency Cream Review! 🙂
