[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] As you can see, I’ve had a good go at the Elemis Peptide Antioxidant Hydra-Serum – well before Christmas actually, but have been slow to write about it. In many ways, it’s an ideal switch over product for when the heating goes on and cold weather starts to take it’s toll in leaving skin looking for moisture. What I hoped for from this was hydration and smoothness and I got both.
It’s good for anyone who gets slightly rougher skin under those conditions and loses its lustre. It will definitely address both but I think it’s very top end price wise (£55) for 30ml making those drops very precious. The Peptide4 range from Elemis is really very effective – a couple of years back I tried the Thousand Flower Mask from the same group and loved it and with the serum, it delivers the same efficacy which marks it as reliable. Main players in this are hyaluronic, Honesty Seed oil, Lotus Flower milk, Saffron Flower and Indian gooseberry – I don’t see any obvious enzymatic exfoliants in this other than the Lotus Flower which (it’s a long ingredient list available on their website) but natural peptides occur in Honesty and there are a heap of flower oils. Upshot, my skin was noticeably smoother when I used it at night – the following morning there was a difference although I don’t say it was dramatic. More of an improving forecast over time – with at least two thirds of the bottle still to go, I’d feel confident that results would increase. It’s £55 (although I have linked to Feel Unique which has it for £52.90 HERE, non-affiliate HERE).
