I’ll be the first to tell you that I don’t go out of my way to purchase vegan, cruelty free or kale infused products. It’s awesome if you do of course! I’m just being honest. There are products that I own that may have one or all three of those components. But like I said, I don’t go out of my way to find them for those reasons.


So when I received this skincare line in the mail ( gratis thanks to Influenster/Elemis ) I wasn’t all that impressed or ecstatic. To be honest I haven’t actually heard of Elemis before and It may be because I primarily dabble in Korean skincare.

Elemis is a luxury British skincare brand, they state that their formula’s are an innovative blend of science with the chemistry of nature, carefully crafted by a dedicated team of explorers, scientists and skincare experts.

The ‘ SUPERFOOD’ line is their newest addition so here are my honest thoughts!



ELEMIS super food facial wash (25$)

Company Marketing

This refreshing gel cleanser with a nutrient-dense Supergreen Complex deeply cleanses skin, for radiant, outdoor-fresh glow.
  • Cleanses, Nourishes, Revitalizes Skin
  • Supergreen Complex of Wheatgrass, Kale, Nettle and minerals are combined to leave the complexion looking luminous
  • Superfood lipids, Broccoli Seed, Avocado and Pumpkin Seed oils, are combined with an active, sugar-derived Pre-Biotic helps to maintain a healthy balance in the skin’s microflora
  • Dull looking skin is replaced by a radiant and fresh complexion


My Thoughts

The first thing that caught my attention was the smell. The smell is overpowering in a bad way. I’m not sensitive to fragrances in products and I usually welcome them but this was too much. It smells like freshly cut grass x 10. That’s the only bad thing I have to say. Otherwise, It does a good job as a cleanser. I didn’t notice any radiance from using it but my skin did feel calmer. I have been breaking out since I came back from Korea and this a long with the day cream have really made a difference.

  • Deeply moisturizing, but quickly absorbed, so skin feels soft, plump and instantly hydrated

  • Skin tone looks smooth, revitalized and illuminated with a super fresh glow


My Thoughts

The smell on the cream isn’t as off-putting. Out of all the ingredients it contains, the ginger is what you can smell the most. I really like the ingredient list on the cream, especially that it contains Matcha. This is AMAZING if you have combo-oily skin! It absorbs fairly quickly and hydrates without leaving you feeling oily. I have a hard time finding creams that can achieve this. I usually end up using emulsions as moisturizers since creams are usually too heavy.
