Endorsed by celebrity make up artist, Jemma Kidd, the products are designed for use following cosmetic procedures such as Botox, microdermabrasion, chemical peels and laser resurfacing when skin can be super-sensitive and needs suitable care. The elave range has been specifically formulated to be extra gentle on skin. Made with purified water, anti-ageing vitamins and anti-oxidants and developed by experts in dermatology, elave dermo-cosmetic is free from unnecessary sensitisers like perfume and dye and harsh chemicals which can dry out the skin.
Although the range was developed for post-cosmetic treatment, it can also be used on sensitive skin, as it only contains ingredients necessary to hydrate, plump up and repair the skin, leaving it unbelievably soft and smooth.
Products in the range include:
Daily skin defence SPF 30+ (£31.00 for 32ml)
Protects delicate skin from the ageing effects of the sun with SPF 30+, UVA and UVB filters as well as anti-oxidant vitamins A, B, C and E. This day-cream also includes allatonin, an anti-inflammatory agent to help stimulate the growth of new and healthy skin tissue and alleviate the symptoms of parched, dry, inflamed or irritated skin, restoring elasticity and suppleness.
The cream has an iridescent look, so is an ideal base for make up, or can be used alone for a fresh look on make up free days.
The skin softening results of the cream are fantastic, and it does leave a healthy iridescent glow. First time I used this cream I did find it a little oily for my skin, and had to apply a dusting of powder to combat the shine. But by applying less next time I found this was more suitable for my skin texture. Apply the cream lightly as a little is plenty (and means the cream will last longer).
Intense moisture surge (£24 for 32ml)
A non-greasy lotion specifically created to help repair and intensively surge moisture into dry skin leaving skin soft and smooth out dry lines and wrinkles. The cream contains a unique blend of emollients to help defend the skin against ageing and improve cell regeneration. Shea butter and coconut oil rehydrate and give a boost of moisture whilst calming and re balancing inflamed, dry or sensitised skin.
This cream is ideal as a night-time skin treat; the texture of the lotion feels quite light but does offer an intense surge moisture as promised. Similar to the daily skin defence you only need to apply a small amount to get the benefits.
