I purchased the ELEMIS Soothing Apricot Toner on a whim as my skin has been really playing up recently and I was on the look out to add something into my routine which may help with the flare ups. I didn’t have a clue where to start, so I started in my local John Lewis store! Here I was greeted by a lovely lady who explained all that I needed to know about each product.
There are many different brands out there, with lots of different purposes and things that they focus on – but I was recommended the ELEMIS Soothing Apricot Toner which is designed specifically for soothing and revitalising sensitive skin, regulating its pH levels.
You simply apply with a cotton pad (or your reusable Bambaw Pad) or spray it directly onto your skin (for those lazy nights)! You apply it just after you cleanse and before you moisturise.
The first night I used it, my skin not only felt super fresh – but also more hydrated! You can really feel that it seals your pores whilst also giving a fresh feeling which is exactly what I look for in a Toner!
After applying the ELEMIS Soothing Apricot Toner, I have been using my ELEMIS Superfood Night Cream – replenishing night cream which hydrates and restores the skin while you sleep. Formulated with a protective prebiotic and a concentrated blend of Quinoa Extract, Barley and Sweet Almond Milk, it balances the skin’s nutrient levels.
It comes in a sleek and compact bottle which is perfect for travelling, and has an easy pump on the top so that you can get just the right amount every time!
It not only makes my skin feel so fresh and relaxed (perfect for having a good nights sleep) – but it also makes my skin super refreshed and glowy in the mornings too.
Overall, my experience of the ELEMIS Soothing Apricot Toner and ELEMIS Superfood Night Cream has been really positive and I would definitely recommend to anyone who struggles with combination and spot prone skin. It hasn’t caused any of the major flare ups that I’ve experienced in the past when adding new products into my regime and has definitely given me a ‘glow up’!
So why is ELEMIS so good? They use formulas in an innovative blend of science with the chemistry of nature, carefully crafted by a dedicated team of explorers, scientists and skincare experts. And they also invest lots of time in customer research and feedback to ensure they always produce their best products!
