I have been waiting a while to try the Elemis Bliss Capsules after a colleague at work raved about them. I bought them a while ago and finally got around to trying them a few weeks ago.
These capsules are not meant to be used all the time but every so often throughout the year when your skin needs a boost. Elemis say they are ‘formulated with the optimum level of anti oxidant power to improve the visible signs of ageing and counteract the damaging effects of everyday pollution’. My skin was definitely in need of a boost as I have had a busy few months with weddings, birthdays etc… and lots of alcohol involved. A good detox was needed.
The capsules come in two varieties: Lavender for night and Rose for day. They both contain essential oils which you massage in to the skin using the corresponding one for day and night, in place of your normal moisturiser/night cream. Like all Elemis products they smell absolutely gorgeous!.
I found the night capsule quite heavy and it did make my fringe a bit oily, but they really do make your skin feel silky smooth. I also didn’t like the idea of using an oil during the day especially as we have had a fairly hot summer leaving me with quite oily skin anyway but the consistency of the day capsule is a lot lighter
Results: I did have a bit of a ‘breakout’ after I started using the capsules but that was probably the detox effect kicking in. After a week of using these capsules my skin looked brighter and it felt really silky smooth. Makeup went on really well and I felt that my skin looked rejuvenated. I think these capsules are great for a boost every now and then and I would definitely use a few weeks before a special occasion.
