Review - Elemis Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing Facial Wash

Lets face it, washing your face is not exactly the most glamorous part of your skincare routine yet it's probably the most important one.
Those of us who have been "blessed" with problematic, sensitive, clog-prone skin have to take cleansing seriously if we want to even have a prayer of clearing things up. Luckily for me I actually enjoy the process of cleansing and finding the right products has a lot to do with that.

Elemis is a UK spa-oriented skincare brand that has perfected that elusive combination of natural ingredients, performance, functionality and pampering all at once. Elemis cleansers can definitively add that spa-like experience to any cleansing regiment.

My choice cleanser from Elemis is the Tri-Enzyme resurfacing cleanser, which is part of their anti-aging line. Despite the fact that this is in reality a chemical exfoliant, the gentle formulation allows for daily use without any irritation or discomfort. 

Elemis Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing CleanserRevolutionary Tri-Enzyme technology is the catalyst in this safe and effective resurfacing formulation. Galactoarabinan, a Polysaccharide, enhances the non-abrasive exfoliation process, whilst Brazilian Babussu Oil replenishes moisture. Moringa protects the skin against environmental damage, whilst White Truffle, Poria Cocos, soothes and supports the skin’s natural micro flora.

Elemis Tri-Enzyme product line was created to facilitate "gentle" and continuous skin resurfacing, aiding exfoliation and cell renewal through more natural means. The key words in the whole process is "gentle" and "continuous" so if you are looking for dramatic, overnight, mind blowing results after a few uses, then this cleanser is not for you. 

That is not to say that this cleanser doesnt work or that its not worth the investment! Truth be told this is the only cleanser i have ever repurchased - over and over again! Even though its considered a secondary cleanser and adds an additional step in an already lengthy skin routine I am 100% in love with this and i pray that Elemis doesnt discontinue it EVER!!!

Aside from the fact that its a skincare item that works, its also a joy to use - light foam, light (almost non-existent) scent, great texture and you need very little to get the job done. A true spa product!

I have to admit that patience is not something i have too much of but i am so glad that i stuck with using this and didnt give up on it after a few weeks. My skin has literally transformed since i started using this product - little by little, day by day, month by month....the glowiness and brightness of my complexion is unquestionable! My face is smooth and radiant and its getting better and better every single day! 

The best part is that i didnt have to suffer through painful peels and hide away from the world to achieve amazing resurfacing benefits. Yes i had to wait a few months but my face thinks it was definitively worth it.
