Sometime back I had mentioned about the Elemis Brilliantly Beautiful Kit which includes: Pro-Radiance Cleansing Balm 20ml, Cellular Recovery Skin Bliss Capsules 14 caps, Papaya Enzyme Peel 15ml and the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream 15ml.

Today I share my views on the 4 products included in the kit. Let me start off with the Papaya Enzyme Peel which as a matter of fact is not a peel-off mask. It is creamy rinse-off exfoliating mask with the goodness of Papaya and Pineapple fruit enzymes. I LOVE tropical fruits and this creamy mask with a tropical fruit scent is just up my alley. I leave it on for 10-15 minutes on my face and then wipe it off with a warm muslin cloth. The packaging mentions that you can wash it off with lukewarm water, but I use a muslin cloth nonetheless because I love it. Coming to how it makes my skin feel. The immediate effect I noticed was a little tightening on the forehead. But the major difference was noticeable the next day when I felt that my skin was smoother in texture. I have combination-sensitive facial skin and this one worked well for me especially making the drier areas soft. I would use it in future maybe as a weekly skin treat - it is gentle, smells gorgeous and leaves the skin soft and radiant.

I am currently in a 'Cleansing Balm' phase and the Pro-Radiance Cleansing Balm arrived at the right time. One look at the colour of the cleansing balm and I was bowled over. But I am on fence with the fragrance. I don't know why I am not able to enjoy this fragrance, which is a pity, because the texture is really lovely. It melts in the skin as you massage it and cleans well. I use a warm muslin cloth to wipe this off as well and it leaves my skin smooth and moisturised. Full points on that front. Very little is needed for each use and the 20g jar that comes in the kit will easily last me 2-3 weeks. I just hope that I grow to love/enjoy the product's fragrance.

As per the Elemis website the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream is a revolutionary anti-ageing cream that uses the Marine extract Padina Pavonica to transform the complexion in just over 2 weeks. Well, all I can say is I did not have to wait for 2 weeks to see the result. I am in love with this cream. I like the pleasant mild fragrance and its lightweight texture. It skins into the skin and leaves it soft and supple. With combination facial skin I prefer these kind of creams that will provide moisturisation without being too heavy or thick. My favourite product from the Elemis Brilliantly Beautiful Kit is undoubtedly the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream.

The Cellular Recovery Skin Bliss Capsules contain Moringa oil which is known for its anti-ageing properties. There are two types of capsules - pink and green, the former contains Rose while the latter Lavender. The pink one needs to be used in the morning and the green one at night. Break open the oil filled capsule and warm it between your finger tips and apply on the problem areas on the face. I have been using this only at night alternating with pink and green each night. It has been keeping my skin hydrated and supple. I feel these will be great for winter and are also perfect while you are travelling. It gives an moisture boost when your skin is feeling dehydrated.
