Cleanse, tone and moisturise with Pure Beauty

Elemis Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm

We have said it before, and will say it again, but if you cleanse, tone and moisturise, morning and night, you are on your way to having great skin.

We have had a look at the cleanse, tone and moisturise options from Dermalogica, Decleor and Elemis, the brands we stock at Pure-Beauty, and are confident there will be something that is perfect for you.

Our collection of Dermalogica products is huge, but one of our most loved products is their Special Cleansing Gel. This soap-free, foaming gel is suitable for all skin types and thoroughly removes impurities without upsetting the delicate natural balance of your skin. Calming Balm Mint soothes the skin, while Lavender Extract helps with the cleansing action. Used morning and night, skin is left clean and added hydration comes from using the Dermalogica Antioxidant HydraMist. This sweetly scented spray has been designed to improve skin texture while caring for dry, dehydrated skin. White Tea, Licorice and Vitamin E have been blended with Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid to help keep signs of ageing at bay and Pea Extract firms, lifts and tightens. This routine is completed with an application of Dermalogica Active Moist cream. This is an oil-free moisturiser that simply sinks into cleansed skin and thanks to extracts of Lavender, Mallow and Cucumber, skin is left feeling fresh and cared for.

Decleor is a brand synonymous with luxury and there is no doubt that their products make your skin feel loved. A good place to start is the Decleor Essential Cleansing Milk. We love this light cleanser because it is the perfect way to help protect, repair and soften all skin types, thanks to the use of Neroli Essential Oil. Green Tea Waterater removes dirt and tightens pores while Sweet Almond Oil leaves you skin feeling soft. This can be followed with the balancing powers of the Decleor Essential Tonifying Lotion. Apply to the face with a damp cotton wool pad and this professional-strength toner will make your skin feel fabulous. When it comes to a great moisturiser, the smart money is on the Decleor 24 Hour Hydrating Light Cream. Suitable for all skin types, this product is new to the iconic ‘Hydra Floral’ range and simply sinks into your skin, leaving it soft and loved.

If you are new to Elemis, like we are, then we think you will love their products as much as we do. For something a little different on the cleansing front, the Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm is worth checking out. This powerful but gentle, cleansing balm simply dissolves make-up, dirt and grease and leaves skin not only cleansed but nourished and glowing. Elderberry, Starflower and Optimega oils plus anti-ageing algae and Padina Pavonica are the stars of the show and won’t disappoint. To rebalance the pH level of the skin and keep natural oils happy, the Elemis Rehydrating Ginseng Toner does the job. Extracts of Ginseng, Sweet Betty Flower and Saponins from Quillaja Wood come together to remove any traces of your cleanser, sluggish systems are stimulated and after use your skin will feel revitalised and fresh. Elemis offer a wide range of impressive creams for day and night, but today we will touch upon the Elemis Hydra-Balance Day Cream for normal / combination skin. The great thing about this cream is that it’s easy to apply, ultra-light, antioxidant rich and leaves your skin feeling hydrated, balanced and soft all day long.

If you have any questions please get in touch and we will happy to help and send out samples so you can make the right choice for you.

Make Your Face Even More A-Peel-Ing!

Make Your Face Even More A-Peel-Ing!

Image source:

Cosmetic peels done in a clinic can be pretty harsh, leaving your skin red-raw for days and requiring a lot of healing time. The science behind using acids to peel away the top layer of skin is sound and definitely leaves your skin looking better in the long-run, but there are gentler ways to make it happen. Here at Pure Beauty, we stock a whole load of ‘peeling’ products, and we’ve put together a selection of five of the best for you to consider:

Decleor Lift and Brighten Peeling Gel

The exfoliator from Decleor is part of the Prolagene Lift range and has been specially designed to exfoliate mature skin. It acts in just five minutes to smooth and firm skin for a younger, more radiant complexion. It uses fruit acids to gently remove the top layer of skin, revealing new skin beneath and giving you a revitalised look – just be sure to avoid the delicate eye area!

Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel

This non-abrasive exfoliator from Elemis harnesses the power of fruit enzymes to gently exfoliate the skin, making the complexion appear smoother and brighter. It dissolves dead skin cells without rubbing, making it particularly suited to mature and delicate skin, and leaves the skin smoother and brighter.

Dermalogica Daily Resurfacer

These pouches contain a multi-functional product which uses hydroxyl acids to resurface the skin, as well as botanical skin brighteners and maximum hydrators which brighten and moisturise the skin as they go, leaving you with a renewed complexion and glowing skin. The individual pouches mean that you’re able to dispense the exact amount that you need without any waste and the sponge allows you to distribute it even over your skin.

Elemis Dynamic Resurfacing Serum

This resurfacing serum from Elemis has used alpha-hydroxy acids from four different flowers, and contains a patented Tri-Enzyme technology to renovate the surface of your skin. The serums smoothes the skins surface, reduces wrinkles and even helps to deal with open pores and uneven skin. In fact, it’s so powerful that Elemis recommends you use a high SPF after using the serum if you’re going outdoors as your new skin will be so fresh and delicate!

Decleor Phytopeel Smooth Exfoliating Cream

This exfoliating cream from Decleor is a completely smooth formulation which contains no rough particles, and removes the top layer of cells without any abrasion. The cream helps cleanse skin, removes impurities, removes dead skin cells and helps stimulate the cellular renewal process. Your skin will have a healthy glow after just one use.

Love the skin you are in with Pure Beauty

Decleor Body Firming Oil in Cream

While Valentine’s Day is all about expressing your love for others, loving the skin you’re in is most important of all.

At Pure-Beauty we stock a fabulous range of products that soothe not only your skin but your mind, body and soul too, so you can feel at peace with yourself.

If premature ageing and the effects of pollution make you worried about your looks, Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant could be your new best friend.  Physical and chemical exfoliation removes impurities from your skin so you are left with a clean, fresh complexion. The advanced powder formula turns into a creamy paste when mixed with water and as you gently massage it into your skin, the enzymes and ingredients get to work. Charcoal purifies the skin and helps absorb toxins from the pores and Niacinamide, Red Algae and Tara Fruit Extract protect against pollution.

During the winter you can hide under jeans and jumpers, but you still need to look after your body. We love the Decleor Body Firming Oil-In-Cream because it is packed with rich oils which improve skin firmness and elasticity. Apply the cream to areas of concern on your body (not your face) in the morning and/or evening and as skin is smoothed and left soft and supple, grapefruit essential oil allows you to let go of worries and relax.

If it’s cellulite that gets you down, do not fear because Elemis Cellutox Active Body Oil is here to save the day. Not only does regular use help smooth the appearance of cellulite but juniper oil helps remove toxins, lemon promotes lymphatic congestion and sea fennel strengthens the action of the colon and intestinal muscles. Apply to problem areas after you bath or shower and feel your skin become softer and smoother as the oils sink into your body.

Acne and breakouts not only cause embarrassing inflammation and scarring but can also dent your self-confidence, something none of us need. Spots can occur at any age and the MediBac range from Dermalogica is a twenty-four hour treatment system formulated to treat, clear and prevent adult acne. If you have already tried loads of potions and lotions to get things under control, the Dermalogica mediBac Clearing Starter Kit might be worth considering? It includes a full months supply of the products that could leave you with consistently clear, healthy skin.

It’s often our eyes that not only give away our age but also the stress in our lives, and this is why we adore the Elemis Absolute Eye Serum. Lightly applying just two drops of the serum to the eye contour can help reduce the appearance of dullness and puffiness and leaves the area re-hydrated and rejuvenated.

Don’t Neglect Your Neck!

Don’t Neglect Your Neck!

Royalty-free image

It’s all well and good following a strict regime of facial care, but if you’re not taking care of your neck and chest, the whole thing is pointless. Despite being one of the main areas to show signs of ageing, the neck is probably one of the more neglected areas, with many people’s skincare routine stopping at their chin.

If you’re a neck neglecter, it’s never too late to start caring for your under-face areas, and we’ve got a whole bunch of products to help you do it.

Decleor 24 Hour Hydrating Rich Cream

This richly hydrating cream is ideal if you need something to deal with dry and ageing skin, and is perfect for this time of year, when many of us need an extra boost of moisture to help fight against cold winds and central heating. The cream contains extracts of wild pansy and samphire, as well as neroli essential oil, and is specifically formulated to use on both the face and the neck.

Elemis White Brightening Dark Spot Corrector

Dark spots are a sure-fire sign of ageing skin, and can give you away even if you’ve got the most wrinkle-free face imaginable. Dark spots often appear of the neck, as well as the face and hands, so targeting them with something which will reduce the hyper-pigmentation is important. This dark spot corrector visibly reduces the appearance of dark spots, age spots and existing imperfections, giving you a much more even and youthful skin tone.

Decleor Anti-Pollution Hydrating Active Lotion

One of the newer products to hit Pure Beauty’s shelves, this lotion offers the hydrating power of a rich cream in the form of a fresh and light lotion. It provides all-day moisture and can be used on all skin types, providing protection against pollution particles, and leaving skin feeling plumped. Massage into your neck and face daily for best results.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Neck and Decollete Balm

Elemis knows the absolute importance of looking after your neck and chest, which is why they’ve produced this balm specifically for the area. It contains sea buckthorn oil and fatty acid Omega-7, which combine to help visibly improve the appearance of skin elasticity and smoothness, reducing the appearance of crepiness and skin slackening.

Decleor Magnolia Youthful Night Balm

This balm from Decleor, which is intended for use on face and neck, is one of the most potent products they have to offer and is made from 100% natural origin ingredients. Not only does it leave the skin looking plumped and firmer, it gives the skin a luminescent glow, and helps you to wake up looking rejuvenated.

Get the most out of your beauty sleep

Decleor Ylang Ylang Purifying Night Balm

Beauty sleep isn’t just a saying but a reality because this is when your body, and skin, go into repair mode and the damage from the day is fixed.

At Pure Beauty we sell a range of products from iconic brands that leaves your complexion glowing and refreshed when you wake.

Combination and oily skin needs as much love as any other type and the Decleor Ylang Ylang Purifying Night Balm is the perfect treatment. 100% natural and preservative free, this dreamy aromatic night-care treatment simply melts into combination and oily skin and helps to heal imperfections and inflammation. Using just a little before bed, means you will wake with softer, glowing skin.

If it’s acne and excess oil you want to get on top of as you sleep, you need the Dermalogica Overnight Treatment in your bathroom cabinet. The soothing, hydrating treatment is quickly absorbed into the skin to help clear breakouts as you sleep. Salicylic Acid, Green Tea, Lavender, Cucumber and Hyaluronic Acid have been blended together and when used nightly as required, it exfoliates surface skin cells, reduces inflammation and continuously delivers moisture to the skin.

Tired, stressed skin can look dull and drawn by day but this can be dealt with if you use the Elemis Hydra-Nourish Night Cream before you get into bed. This anti-oxidant rich night cream is packed with Persian Silk Tree Extract, Hyaluronic Acid as well as Sweet Almond, Ylang Ylang and Geranium oils which create a total skin saviour. Used on a regular basis this cream not only nourishes and de-stress tired skin but also helps prevent moisture loss so by morning skin feels supple and replenished.

Dry and prematurely ageing skin often needs a little extra help when it comes to cell renewal. This is where the Dermalogica Overnight Retinol Repair comes into play. This concentrated night-time cream contains Retinol which accelerates skin renewal and helps reduce signs of ageing as well as Vitamin C which works hard to fight uneven skin tone and discolouration. A clinically proven bioenergised copper amino acid complex gets to work on wrinkles and also helps improve skin firmness. This does include a moisturising ‘buffer cream’ that helps skin acclimatise to this highly-active form of Retinol.

Sagging jowls, cheeks and chins are just some of the issues we face as we get older, but using the Elemis Pro-Definition Night Cream can keep problems at bay. The powerful blend of Gardenia Stem Cells, Arjuna and Lupin stimulate the skin’s biological energy cycle to deliver the ultimate lift effect and a smoother texture to your complexion.
