When you’re asked if you want to review the new Elemis Pro-Collagen Quartz Lift Facial, it would be so rude to say no. This new anti-ageing facial from Elemis is clinically proven to reduce the number of fine lines and wrinkles by up to 94% and improve skin firmness by up to 57% after just one treatment – so I was keen to see how it would work for me.
First my therapist applied a gentle rose petal cleanser, then a series of masks. While the ingredients were busy unravelling the ravages of time I enjoyed an arm and hand massage. Finally the star product – the pro-collagen quartz lift mask – was applied. While this was ‘setting’ I had a blissful scalp massage.
The mask peels off sci-fi style, a bit like a floppy Oscar, and you can see the indentations where it has picked up uneven skin tone and tiny blemishes.
A coating of the pro-collagen marine cream, across face and décolleté, and I’m ready to look in the mirror. My skin is radiant. The next morning my skin is still plump and glowing and my fine lines are less visible – praise be!
Verdict: A great facial for targeting early signs of ageing and in my experience the effects last for at least a week. Great preparation if you’re about to begin an anti-ageing beauty routine.
