Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel was one of the first face masks I really fell in love with – a decade ago, when it first came out it was the talk of beauty town and on every single beauty page anywhere, ever! I can hardly believe it is ten years old this year. As the name suggests, the peel uses fruit enzymes to whisk away old cells and give your skin clarity and softness. I’ve moved on now to the Elemis Tri-Enzyme Peel which I totally love, but every now and again I still go back to Papaya. It’s just a lovely, reliable face mask that does the trick every single time. Skin is better for it. 

Anyway, this beautifully designed limited edition packaging is more than worth picking up not only because it is so pretty (designed by British designer, Laura Oakes) but also because it’s the gift to self that gives to others. For every product sold, Elemis will provide a 5-in-1 Pentavalent vaccine to immunise a child in Africa agains five common diseases and are working with SOCO, a charity that works around the globe to alleviate poverty and associated disadvantages in underpriviledged societies. Papaya Enzyme Peel ingredients are sourced from the Congo in Africa and Kenya so it’s completely right that these countries should benefit every time you buy a limited edition peel. 


Do keep an eye out for the mask which launches on 1st June for £28.
