If you have ever been to a Spa or watched late night Shopping TV shows, you’ve probably come across this Award Winning Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream. You can buy the premium product directly through the Elemis website, but why do that when you can get the Elemis Marine Cream Best Price on Amazon. I’ve worked with Elemis products in Spas for years, some people swear by them and only use Elemis products. However, I don’t rate all the products as you’ll see, but this is definitely one your skin will thank you for.
The main ingredient in the ELEMIS skincare range is Padina Pavonica (AKA Peacock’s Tail), a brown seaweed found across the Mediterranean Sea, Indian Ocean, Pacific Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean. The main benefit of the Padina Pavonica extract is that it helps to preserve and maintain the skin’s collagen and elastin, helping to plump, rehydrate and smooth the skin’s surface. The Pro-Colagen Marine Cream also contains Rose and Mimosa to condition and nourish as well as having the added benefit of being a natural mild sunscreen. The Ginkgo Biloba included is also rich in antioxidants, adding to the anti-aging benefits.
The seaweed was actually found on a shipwreck, and when the divers peeled back the seaweed, they noticed the ship’s surface was still intact and well-preserved. To this day Elemis have divers near the Pacific Ocean looking after the seaweed to use for the padina pavonica extract. (Little fascinating fact for you.)

The Best ELEMIS Products
Another Award Winning Product of ELEMIS. Great to remove make up with as it dissolves it and deeply cleanses the skin. With an amazing blend of 10 different fragrances, it smells absolutely beautiful! A 2 in 1 product that doubles up as a mask. Pro tip: leave on your face during a bath and place the muslin cloth (included with the cleanser) over your face before using it to remove the mask. (Check the skincare routine post to see how to add it to your routine)
I have to say this is best smelling toner I have ever used with its fruity, apricot scent. Suitable for sensitive skin. Great to use as a revitalizing spritzer for a quick freshen up. Unlike other many other toners, it doesn’t dry out your skin. Pro tip: apply to dry cotton pads and place them on to you eyes whilst relaxing with a face mask (try a homemade face mask).
The Rose helps the skin’s elasticity. The jojoba spheres melt away on the skin to help moisterize the skin, plus making it environmentally friendly. So gentle, unlike many exfoliants, you can even use it daily. One of my favourite exfoliators.
Great for after an extraction (squeezing spots) session. Even though that isn’t recommended doing yourself unless you’re professionally trained, as it can cause skin damage, I know many people still do. So this is great mask to use after with the lavendar in it to calm down the redness. My skin looks and feels so much more clear after using this. Ideal for acne prone skin in general.
A great skin smoothing treatment to use for those wrinkles on the neck and bust area as you can see from the results.
A luxurious hair, nail and body oil that smells just divine! As it solidifies at cooler temperatures, you need to leave the bottle in the bath, or hot water, for it to melt into an oil before using. The sweet, floral fragrance and long lasting hydration makes it one of the most exquisite treatment oils ever.
ELEMIS Products I DO NOT RATE
Whilst ELEMIS has some amazing spa-quality, fragrantly scented products, there are a few I would AVOID:
Papaya Enzyme Peel – An non-granular enzyme peel mask that essentially eats away at the dead skin cells on the surface of skin. It doesn’t hurt and smells exotic with the pineapple, but there was an ingredient in this product they didn’t declare which put me off it. I couldn’t find the article annoyingly but will update this when I do.
Pro-Collagen Advanced Eye Treatment – I used this products for weeks and didn’t notice any visible signs of improvement unfortunately. Same with every Elemis product for the eye area, The only one that did make a difference was the Peptide 4 Eye Recovery Cream, after 2 weeks. (The best product for eyes I’d recommend is Vital Eyes mentioned in the CBD Skin Benefits article, where you can see images of results in just 30 minutes.)
Pro-Collagen Marine Cream Ultra Rich – Part of the Pro-Collagen Range, this product is especially formulated to suit more dry and dehydrated skin types like mine. However I find it less moisterizing than the original Pro-Collagen Marine Cream.
Since it’s launch in 2003, the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream has taken the beauty industry by storm with one sold every 10 seconds worldwide. Now the brand have created a new formula with SPF30 that’s finally available in the U.S. market. The sunscreen took 15 years to create so it still includes that lightweight gel-cream texture of the original, still absorbs quickly and still great to use under make-up. Personally, I prefer this to the original as it has all the benefits of it and includes extra protection to prevent skin aging in the first place. What more could you ask for from a day cream.
Hope that helps any buying Elemis products.
ALWAYS check the ingredients of any products before buying if you have any allergies too.
Feel free to ask me to review a product so I can try it before you buy it.
Stay well & hydrated!
