If you are a fan of the iconic Cleansing Balm from Elemis, this will be very exciting because they have just launched an absolutely gorgeous new limited edition aromatic. Here’s the lowdown on the Elemis Pro-Collagen Green Fig Cleansing Balm. I think it might be my favourite yet!
What is Elemis Pro-Collagen Green Fig Cleansing Balm?
This is a brand new scent in Elemis’ iconic 3 in 1 cleansing balm. The original Pro-Collagen Cleansing balm has been one of the brand’s best sellers since it launched 10 years ago.
In case you’re unfamiliar with the cleansing balm, here are the highlights:
- Nourishing cleansing balm
- Designed to melt away makeup, daily pollutants and impurities
- Leaves skin soft and glowing
- Transforms from a balm, to a oil, to a milk
- Can also be used as a nourishing mask, if left on for 10 minutes
- Starflower oil softens and firms skin
- Elderberry Oil promotes radiance
- Padina Pavonica supports hydration
- Now available in Green Fig aromatic
Green Fig Cleansing Balm Notes
This combining ripe, green, and earthy tones of Fig along with raspberry, and Bergamot.
Top notes: Fresh & sweet notes of Raspberry & Bergamot
Middle notes: Warm notes of Fig & Coconut
Base notes: Earthy notes of Sandalwood & Cedarwood
How to use it
Just like the original, the Elemis Pro-Collagen Green Fig Cleansing Balm is easy to use and feels so luxurious.
You simply massage a pea-sized amount on to dry skin and as it warms up it transforms into a silky oil. You add a splash of water to then further transform the cleanser into a milk. Then you can rinse away, or use a cloth to remove it.
This is the perfect first cleanse.
My Review of Elemis Pro-Collagen Green Fig Cleansing Balm
I have to say, it was love with this new version of the Cleansing Balm as soon as I smelt it. It is absolutely stunning. I’m a huge fan of the Original, and I think it will always hold the number one spot in my heart, but this aromatic is my favourite out of all the different versions they have ever created.
The fig note is unbelievable. It is juicy and ripe, softly sweet and very warm and comforting. The bergamot is really uplifting and the woody notes feel like a cuddle. I absolutely love it.
And of course, it’s a brilliant cleanser just like the original. It is so soft and soothing on the skin, melts away every speck of makeup and impurities, and leaves my skin feeling nourished, hydrated and calm. It’s just such an excellent product.
