Morning morning. Today I thought I’d highlight products from my most used skin care range which I have using for months and months ..as I mentioned (here). The brand I am talking about is Elemis FreshSkin and I recently attended an event for the brand which educated us on the newest range from FreshSkin.
Before I take you through the pictures like I always do with events I just want to show you this little travel/discovery kit which has been a life saver for me. The problem with skin care is that you can’t live without it and for someone who hates depotting products.. When you travel you have to carry the whole thing with you. This is where this little beauty comes in and helps me lug less luggage across London every weekend! I introduce you to the Fresh Start Discovery Kit (£19.90), which contains products I use in my every day skin care routine.
The discovery kit was created so people can discover the whole range without having to fork out lots of money only to discover the range wasn’t for them. I find that to be such a clever idea and think much more brands should do that, I know Benefit do it sometimes but it isn’t a part of their permanent collection. Also, it can work as a travel sets as the sizes are really generous and can last you quite some time. Within the kit there are two products I’ve mentioned to before, the Softly Softly Daily Moisturiser
and the Peachy Perfect Gentle Cleanser
which you can read all about (here
). The kit also contains a exfoliater called Skin Glow Exfoliating Face Wash
. I’ve actually have the full size exfoliater at home already and have been using it for a while. It’s a lovely every day exfoliator that I adore and coming across it here makes me realise it deserves it’s own blog post so look out for a review soon. Now onto products I haven’t used from the range before.
There is a night dream called the Dreamy Sleep Night-Time Moisturiser. It doesn’t feel super heavy like I envisioned it would be and I honestly do notice that my skin feels more hydrated in the morning in comparison to other creams I use at night time such as the Softly Softly. It isn’t as intense as my much loved Oilatum, however as my skin has been well looked after for quite some time now I notice that it doesn’t need such extreme moisture as often and is more than satisfied with this night time moisturiser.
The second item that I haven’t tried from the range is face masks, and this kit contains three sachets of Deep Clean Purifying Face Mask. I’ve used on hence why I’ve only got pictures of two, I couldn’t tell you all about it if I hadn’t tried it right? First impression, I absolutely LOVE it. This is my kind of face mask, does a great deep clean and dries really well on my face. I get that tight face frozen feeling that I crave from masks, and upon taking the mask off my skin does feel super clean and soft. The masks contain natural clays, goji berry extract and frankincense which is great for getting id of impurities and after having to wear foundation and heavy make up over the weekend I definitely needed this. It would be 10 out of 10 if it wasn’t for one problem, the face mask sachets are really really small, at only 3ml, and I really wish they were bigger. There is just about enough for my whole face, but I really do wish there was a little more. 5ml should be minimum but other than that it is perfect. I just checked the full size mask set, and they are over double the size of the masks included in the discovery kit – now it makes perfect sense why they are smaller here, after all it is a discovery/travel set!
Now enough of me rambling, take a look at pictures from the event. We had the opportunity to try out FreshSkin facials and get our nails and hair done.
Being educated on the latest range by the beautiful Emer, I’m definitely more of a pink girl!
Potential Christmas pressies maybe?
The discovery kit!
See those Essie pinks at the front? They’re exclusive Essie for Elemis FreshSkin nail colour! Gorgeous.

The next few pictures are of my hair, Electric Hairdressing were doing lovely moisturising hair treatments and hair styling at the event and I was fortunate enough to have the lovely Ky Wilson
make my hair look super fabulous. He really worked wonders as you will be able to see below. He also is a fellow blogger and you can take a peek into his life (here
). He actually works at the Electric salon, and I couldn’t recommend him enough, was an absolute pleasure to meet.
How super sleek and shiny does my hair look? It felt like silk – no exaggeration
Shiny, shiny, shiny!
Ta-da, very retro and glamorous. I absolutely love love loved Ky’s finished work. Please do ignore my face,
I just had a facial so had practically all my make up removed!
How tidy and shiny and pretty does my hair look? I still cannot get over it!
I liked my hair so much that even though I had no plans for that evening, I made plans! Hair like that deserves to go out, not be wasted at home. I had lots and lots of stares from men, women, girls, pets.. and I knew it wasn’t because I forgot to wear an essential item of clothing, no it was because for once my hair looked amazing. I liked my hair so much, that even though there was such a lack of make up in the picture.. I still made this hair my MakeupAtoZ facebook picture. Yes, that is true admiration.

That is all for today’s post for Makeup A to Z, quite a bit to read I know. I have a very exciting Elemis Fresh Skin give away coming up very soon so keep an eye out for that, until next time have a great day! – Tanzina x
