Elemis FreshSkin is a range aimed at younger skin - from teens to twenties, according to the Elemis website. When I first head about the range, I thought it sat a little at odds with Elemis as a brand - they're all about effective luxurious products with high end ingredients. And indeed, at £20, I'm not too sure how this daily moisturiser lines up against the average teenager's wallet.
Doubts about the targeting of the range aside, the Softly Softly daily moisturiser is a real gem of a product. I tend to use my hardcore rich anti-aging stuff at night, and like something lighter and more simple for daytime - and this non-greasy cream is absolutely perfect for daytime wear. Scented with lavender, it's wonderfully hydrating (I can almost feel my skin sucking up all the moisture), but not too heavy - a drop spreads easily over the skin and is quickly absorbed, leaving the skin feeling soft. There's a little bit of residue left over but it absorbs after a few minutes - I use it to help blend drier foundations quickly over my skin.
I also really love the packaging - it's a sealed pump dispenser affair, and there's absolutely no way any bacteria or other contaminants can get into the product. A gentle press on the top dispenses just enough moisturiser for the face and neck. Lovely stuff.
Find it at official Elemis stockists Time to Spa, where a 50ml tube will set you back £20.
