Elemis Biotec Skin Energising Skincare

Elemis Biotec Skincare

Elemis Biotec Skincare

The Elemis Biotec range is focused on combating depleted cell energy which is often the result of lifestyle, environment, diet and stress which takes its toll on our skin. It makes our skin look dull, dehydrated, less firm and fatigued & these three products help to reboot our skins performance.

Biotec Skin Energising Day Cream £75

Both the day & night cream are bi phase and are packed with so many amazing ingredients to improve skin function, help your skin look radiant, protect it and encourage cell turnover and function. The white part has a creamy texture whilst the green part is a gel, two pumps massaged into your skin is all you need to deliver a boost of ingredients to help improve your skin’s performance,

Intensely moisturise skin with the BIOTEC Skin Energising Day Cream from Elemis. Specially formulated with an energising trio of acids, including Succinic, Lactic and Ferulic to hydrate and nourish skin, revealing a smoother, replenished complexion. With the brand’s Bio-Energy™ Complex of encapsulated Zinc and Copper, the lightweight moisturiser increases cell energy, whilst working to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

Skin Energising Night Cream* £85

This is much like the day cream in texture and feels similar on the skin, it contains much the same cell boosting ingredients and is also a bi-phase formula. It contains these incredible ingredients for your skin:-

‘Intensely hydrate the skin whilst you sleep with the BIOTEC Skin Energising Night Cream from Elemis. Specially formulated with an energising trio of acids, including Succinic, Lactic and Ferulic to deeply nourish skin, revealing a smoother, replenished complexion. Powered by the brand’s Bio-Energy™ Complex of encapsulated Zinc and Copper, the lightweight moisturiser increases cell energy, whilst Calcium PCA and Sunflower help to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.’ 

New Elemis Biotec Skincare

I’ve been using the day & night creams for about 3 weeks now, I do think they have helped give my skin a lovely boost of hydration and radiance. I thought the formula was rich, creamy and made my skin feel incredible, instantly smooth and hydrated. It feels like they’re giving my skin a shot of nourishment, I would say that I saw instant results and also over the past few weeks I think my skin is looking less red, not so dull and a little more refreshed. They leave skin feeling silky smooth and very soft.

The day cream feels lovely under makeup and my skin felt really moisturised throughout the day. The night cream is my favourite because its rich formula just seems to work a little magic overnight and I wake up with lovely refreshed skin.

The price point is more on the luxury side so if I had to recommend just one of them it would have to be the night cream over the day cream because I feel that overnight we get the most out of our skincare and we don’t pile makeup on top or SPF so I think the product is able to work a little better whilst we rest and I always see better results in the morning.

Biotec Skin Energising Day Cream

Elemis Biotec Skin Energising Cleanser* £39.50

This is a gel cleanser which you massage in with warm water and remove with a warm damp cloth, It did leave my skin very clean but I just wasn’t as impressed with the cleanser. I liked using it more in the morning because it felt energising on my skin but I felt like my skin didn’t feel very hydrated. Elemis say that:-

This step kick-starts the BIOTEC system, preparing the skin for optimum performance, creating a dynamic environment to activate the BIOTEC day and night moisturisers. 

But I’m not 100% convinced. I will continue to use it a couple of times a week and see if I grow to like it. I have read quite a few glowing reviews so maybe I am writing it off a little too soon. I might try it as a first cleanse and follow it with more of a cream based product. It’s all trial & error I guess. The cleanser also contains some great ingredients for your skin:-

‘Specially formulated with an energising trio of acids, including Succinic, Lactic and Ferulic to reduces excess oil and rebalance skin, revealing a refreshed, revitalised complexion’

Elemis Biotec Skin Energising Cleanser

All in all I think these products are exciting and skincare seems to be getting more scientific by the day. Lots of advancements mean our products have a more impressive and potent list of ingredients which is deliver just what our skin needs. I’m excited to continue to use the Elemis Biotec Skincare System and I hope to see continuing results.

If you do want to try these but feel the price tag of the full sized products is just too much for you to commit to, Elemis do a great discovery version which includes a mini version of all three products for £35.00. This is a great way to try them all and see how they work for you.

Aldi Lacura Caviar Skincare

Aldi Lacura Caviar Skincare

Aldi Lacura Caviar Skincare

When Aldi first released its eagerly awaited Caviar skincare range it sold out almost immediately which isn’t surprising after all the rave reviews it received, from the likes of Good Housekeeping to the Guardian. I have tried a few skincare products from budget-friendly supermarket Aldi and I have to say they have always impressed me. I love to find purse friendly alternatives that work.

So the Lacura Caviar range has ingredients that you expect to find in more expensive brands but Aldi are known for bringing affordable alternatives to the masses and they hit the headlines with this range. The key ingredients that everyone’s talking about are

Caviar – This ingredient is known to revitalise and promote regeneration and collagen production. As well as protecting skin from environmental aggressors.

Snow Algae – This ingredient is known to help restore your skins natural glow and increase hydration

Affordable Aldi Caviar Skincare

Lacura Caviar Illumination Day Cream SPF15* £6.99

This moisturiser isn’t lightweight as I hoped but it doesn’t feel greasy on the skin, I like to take a minute to massage it into my skin and I don’t use too much product. It has a generic cream scent which isn’t unpleasant or overpowering. The cream feels very hydrating and leaves my skin soft. I like that it contains SPF15 UVA & UVB protection as well as Hyaluronic Acid which has become such a popular and sought-after ingredient in skincare because of it ability to help skin retain moisture, it’s also good at protecting skin from environmental aggressors. It contains the two ingredients mentioned above, Caviar & Snow Algae so for a very affordable price you’re getting an ingredient rich moisturiser. I can see why this flies off the shelves and has become so popular.

Alsi Caviar Moisturising Day Cream

Lacura Caviar Illumination Night Cream* £6.99

This has a similar texture and scent to the day cream, it’s slightly creamier in colour. This has been a really lovely night cream and it leaves your skin feeling supple, hydrated and smooth by morning. It contains mostly the same key ingredients as the Caviar day cream but it also has Pro-Vitamin B5 which helps soothe and repair skin, so by morning your skin is looking and feeling a little better. Again this night cream contains that sought-after Caviar, Snow Algae and Hyaluronic Acid so if you use both the day & night cream in your routine you’re giving your skin a real boost of hydration and nourish your skin so it looks more radiant.

Aldi Lacura Caviar Night Cream

The packaging of both products feel luxurious, the pots are glass which is quite weighty with silver plastic lids. The design looks simple and a lot more expensive than they are. Yes, I’m very impressed with this range, I wasn’t expecting much but they’re as good as many of my more expensive products. I will be recommending it to my mum, I think she will really like the night cream especially.

I think this duo is pretty fantastic and the price point just makes it all the more incredible. People with oil-prone skin may find the day cream a little heavy but I would recommend trying these out and for the price, I think you will be surprised at the positive results.

Let me know what your favourite affordable skincare products are.

Lacura Caviar Skincare is available in Aldi stores nationwide.

A Moisturiser For The Winter

Organic Surge daily moisturiser

I’m new to the world of Organic Surge* although I have read some really good reviews of their products and so was very excited to try out their Super – Intensive Daily Moisturiser. I was a worried that this moisturiser might be a little heavy for me as I often have quite oily skin in places. I was surprised that although this is quite a rich cream it wasn’t greasy or heavy on my skin, it actually absorbed quickly.

This moisturiser is formulated for dry / mature skin and I think it is perfect as a winter hydrating moisturiser. I’m 35 so would say I have quite mature skin and I liked how this gave my skin hydration and was quite soothing. My skin can get quite red and dry over my cheeks and whilst using this cream found it calmed my skin and it felt very soft and smooth. It has quite a strong floral scent, but that doesn’t linger on the skin. The only downside of this cream for me is it doesn’t contain SPF so I have to apply that separately, thats my only negative point.

It is packed full of goodness

Shea Butter – great for promoting cell renewal

Cocoa Butter – good for skin tone

Glycerine – locks in moisture

Green Tea – reduces inflammation

Chamomile – very soothing

Aloe Vera – repairs, calms and moisturises

Organic Rose Geranium – helps revive a dull complexion

Organic Surge

With its hydrating, soothing and calming properties this is a perfect winter daily moisturiser. It will keep your skin hydrated and give it radiance. I’ve been teaming this up with my Hydraluron for a double moisture boost and it is working a treat. So if you’re looking for a great value, hydrating moisturiser I would highly recommend you give this a go. Organic Surge are also Organic, Vegan Friendly and Cruelty Free, which is always a plus. You can purchase their products online from OrganicSurge.com
