Hailed as the perfect cream to give you your glow, the Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream is a lightweight formula designed to balance, nourish and tighten ageing skin.

The gel-cream acheives this with 3 key ingredients. Brown algae (called padina pavonica, the hero ingredient) restores lost moisture and helps keep the skin looking youthful. Rose hydrates, soothes and calms. While mimosa absolutes relieves sore and damaged skin against free radicals.

Who is it for?
Anyone looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines, dullness and lack of tone. Its lightweight texture makes it suitable for anyone over 20 and skin types.

How to use it
Use every morning by warming a pea-sized amount between hands and massaging over face and neck. Those with drier skin might prefer to use a little more.

Why it’s a hero
Vogue beauty and lifestyle director Jessica Diner says: “I like to call this gem of a product Pro-Collagen Marine Dream. I always have a jar of it on my desk actually, and if my face is looking a bit tired (the 2pm makeup slump), instead of using a mist I’ll press it into my skin with the tips of my fingers for a little pick-me-up.

“It doesn’t interrupt makeup and also gives a nice highlight if you focus on the tops of cheekbones and brow bones. They have also launched a rich version for drier skin types, a game-changer in that it’s still in the same lightweight gel formula that won’t feel heavy or greasy.”
