Oil up with Pure Beauty

Elemis Cellutox Active Body Oil

For many people the idea of putting oil on their skin seems, well, wrong.

Oil tends to be associated with grease and spots and not something that will make your complexion look better. However, times are changing and the truth is, the right oils, blended in the right way can really benefit your skin, hands, feet, nails and hair.

Nourishing oils can help to heal, protect and purify so your skin looks and feels better than ever.

If you feel as if your skin could do with a little extra love, look no further.

Whether you want to even out those dehydration lines, put an end to blemishes or slow down ageing, at Pure Beauty we have a range of products from Decleor, Dermalogica and Elemis that we think will change your mind about oils forever.

If you think you can’t use oil based products all the time, think again. Dermalogica Phyto Replenish Oil is a daily use treatment oil that is the answer to your dryness and dehydration prayers. Just four drops will start to restore the protective lipids your skin needs for a dewy, youthful appearance. Camelli, orchid, sunflower, rosemary and chia seed all have been blended together to create a silky-smooth product that can sinks into the skin leaving it feeling wonderful but without a trace of oil or shine left behind.

If the thought of peeling off the winter layers and getting into a bikini is more daunting than Brexit, you might want to give the Elemis Cellutox Active Body Oil a try. A mix of Sea Buckthorn, Sea Fennel, Lemon and Juniper essential oils nourish, detoxify and stimulate the skin, helping to smooth the appearance of cellulite and combat the build-up of toxins created by poor diet, stress and lack of exercise. After showering, rub a little of the oil over the tummy, buttocks and thighs when the skin is warm and let the powerful natural ingredients get to work.

If you think cleansers, you tend to visualise a cream or gel, but not an oil, right? Wrong. Let us introduce you to the Decleor Micellar Oil, a revolutionary cleanser that uses the powerful combination of oil and water to dissolve dirt and remove the heaviest of make-up. Sweet Almond Oil, which is rich in essential fatty acids, helps to soothe the skin while Vegetal Squalene maintains hydration levels so that the skin feels moisturised and supple. This cleanser turns into a milky white lotion when mixed with water and when rinsed away it is as if a whole new you has come to life.

If you want one product for all your needs, you will find it in a bottle of Elemis Japanese Camellia Body Oil Blend. Extracted from the Japanese Camellia flower and blended with Sweet Almond oil, this product is soaked up by thirsty skin, hair and nails and is one of our favourites. Used on a regular basis, this oil improves elasticity, supports and nourishes all skin types and because it provides high hydration levels, it is perfect for preventing stretch marks and reducing scar tissue.

And let’s not forget the men in our life as their skin can get tired too. The Elemis Smooth Result Shave and Beard Oil is a multi-purpose face and beard-smoothing shave oil that softens bristles and prepares the skin for shaving. Packed with a blend of vitamin-rich herbal oils this is the ideal for all skins types and will ensure a kind, smooth shave that will leave beard and man, happy.

They’re Never Too Young for Skincare!

If you’re a parent who takes care of their skin and spends time on a proper skincare routine, there’s a good chance that your kids have seen you do it, and maybe they even ask to join in! There are some incredibly potent products on our site that are strictly for adult use only, but we also have several things which are mild enough for kids to use too, and we thought we’d give you an overview of a few of them.

Elemis Gentle Foaming Facial Wash

Washing your face is important at any age and although for kids it’s usually a ‘flannel and hot water’ job, there’s no harm in letting them use this facial wash from Elemis every now and again. It’s incredibly mild and doesn’t contain harmful chemicals which could dry out the skin. It gently sweeps away pollutants and impurities whilst respecting the skin’s natural oils, leaving your face clean and fresh.

Decleor Deep Cleansing Clarifying Clay Mask

In our experience, kids love to pretend they’re grown ups, so having an at-home spa day with a parent is the height of fun! Face masks are always popular and this creamy clay mask from Decleor would be gentle enough for young skin. It softens the skin and wicks away impurities for an even complexion.

Elemis Devils Mint Body Scrub

If something is safe for use in pregnancy, we figure it’s gentle enough to use on a child and that’s the case with this body scrub. Give your kids the Turkish bath experience with a bit of exfoliation. We wouldn’t suggest rubbing too hard as the sensation will be new to them, but it will definitely be an experience! This scrub from Decleor smells divine and really clears the head and invigorates the body.

Dermalogica Foaming Wash

Depending on the age of your child, it might well be time for them to start using products on a daily basis to keep their hormone-susceptible skin in check. This foaming wash from Dermalogica is specifically formulated for young, spot prone skin which is starting to feel the effects of burgeoning hormones and by keeping the face super clean it aims to keep spots at bay. Getting them into a proper skincare routine could really spare the agony of bad teenage skin as they get older.

Elemis Treat Your Feet Foot Cream

Trying to give your child a foot massage is usually an hilarious experience because they’re just so ticklish that it’s hard to get anywhere near them! If you can get them to sit still for long enough, this foot cream from Elemis is excellent at keeping the tough skin of the foot soft and supple and it would be a great treatment after long days on the beach or spending time running around the garden barefoot.

The sun has got his hat on so protect your skin

 Dermalogica Protection 50 Sport SPF50

With temperatures hotting up, it is only natural to shed those winter layers and let our skin soak up the sun.

While this is great for topping up often depleted Vitamin D levels, those UV rays can easily damage the skin and lead to serious health conditions as well as causing liver spots and premature ageing.

At Pure Beauty we suggest you use sun protection products all year round, but as summer approaches this is more important than ever.

We totally adore the Dermalogica Solar Defence System range because it allows you to enjoy the sun but keeps your skin healthy and youthful at the same time. If you are looking for water-resistant, broad spectrum sun protection for the face and body, look no further than Dermalogica Protection 50 Sport SPF50. Used 15 minutes before you go outside, this sheer solar protection treatment defends against UV light and environmental damage. It has a lightweight formula that melts into the skin without feeling greasy and you can go about your day know your skin is protected and you look amazing.

For something a little different, we think you will be impressed with the Decleor BB Cream 24 Hour Hydration SPF15. This is a 24 hour, protective moisturiser with the benefits of a foundation that adds a flawless finish to all skin types. It is light and fresh and not only moisturises for 24 hours but also illuminates and evens out your complexion. Due to the research that goes into Decleor products, this product refines skin texture and corrects blemishes as well as offering that vital protection against UVA/UVB rays and pollution. From the first time you use it, your skin will feel fresh and hydrated and  will look flawless and luminous from morning to night.

We are big fans of Elemis and are currently loving the Elemis Liquid Layer SPF30. This has to be the first port of call if you want to protect against sun damage and premature skin ageing. This silky lotion offers water-resistant SPF30 protection against UVA, UVB rays and pollution. It can be used every day and applied after your regular moisturiser and because it is smooth and non-greasy, you can still wear wake-up.

Back to Dermalogica and if you want to boost your foundation or moisturiser, the Dermalogica Solar Defence Booster SPF 50 is perfect. This clever lotions adds vital UVA and UVB Broad Spectrum sunscreen to other products to ensure your skin is safe 24/7. A Safflower-derived, sunscreen-filled capsule provides enhanced moisturisation as well as boosting SPF, those Dermalogica guys are smart! Grape Seed and Green Tea create a blend of soothing botanical extracts and provide anti-enzyme and antioxidant protection while Vitamins C and E work together to improve skin smoothness and softness, and help control free radical damage. The result, happy skin that is soft and safe.

If you’re a regular here at beauty, you might have noticed that we now sell Elemis products, the award-winning skincare brand which offers powerful products with natural ingredients. Some of the best-selling products from Elemis are their masks which come in a range of varieties, each with a different targeted function so we thought we’d give you a guided tour of the ones we offer.

Elemis Dynamic Resurfacing Gel Mask

This mask from Elemis comes in gel form and gives a dramatic and immediate smoothing effect to the skin. It makes wrinkles appear reduced and contains powerful enzymes which you can actually FEEL working on your skin. It encourages effective re-texturising of the skin’s surface, help balance sebum levels without compromising skin’s natural pH balance and promotes firmer looking skin.

Elemis Exotic Cream Moisturising Mask

Elemis aren’t kidding when they say that this mask is exotic; it contains extracts of mimosa and honey absolute, as well as sea-rocket, orange and bergamot. This super moisturising, healing and nourishing mask can be used twice a week on freshly cleansed skin and will dramatically improve the skin’s moisture levels, banishing dryness from the first use.

Elemis Fruit Active Rejuvenating Mask

If you feel that your skin is dull and lacking the brightness it once had, then you could definitely benefit from using this rejuvenating mask. It contains extracts of strawberry and kiwi, as well as soothing kaolin, derived from natural clay, which combine to deeply cleanse the skin and leave your face revitalised.

Elemis Herbal Lavender Repair Mask

For many people, using face masks is synonymous with relaxation and unwinding after a hard day, and this lavender-infused mask is simply perfect for this. It’s ideal for sensitive skin which is prone to blemishes, but can be used by most skin types effectively. A kaolin base, which also utilises rosemary and thyme, will decongest and heal the skin, leaving you feeling relaxed and refreshed.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Mask

Masks are a fabulous ally in the fight against the signs of ageing as they have a chance to sit on your skin and re-enrich it with missing elements such as collagen. This mask from Elemis contains various ingredients such as quartz, padina pavonica, noni and argan tree oil which firm, smooth and nourish the skin, helping to give a more youthful appearance.

Shop at Pure Beauty for a spring complexion

The winter can be harsh on our skin and the combination of the elements as well as layers of clothing, air conditioning and central hearing can cause damage that can be hard to repair. With spring on the way, now is the perfect time to go back to basics and get your skin clean, soft and ready for the summer.

At Pure Beauty we stock a range of fantastic products from Decleor, Dermalogica and Elemis that are perfect for creating a fresh base, the thing is, we have so many, we don’t know where to start.

So, let’s start at the beginning by suggesting you try out the new Daily Superfoliant from Dermalogica. This fab product provides triple-action adsorption as well as second to none exfoliation, meaning that impurities on the skin are washed away leaving drier and prematurely-ageing skin feeling smoother, lighter and refreshed. The formula can be used on a daily based and the powerful enzymes, natural acids and charcoal come together to purify the skin and release toxins from the pores, while Niacinamide, Red Algae and Tara Fruit Extract offer protection from further damage. What are you waiting for, buy today and get the skin you have always dreamed of.

If you skin is feeling sluggish and slow, you might want to consider trying the gorgeous Elemis Herbal Lavender Repair Mask. This skin balancing, calming mask is gentle but effective and ideal for sensitive, blemish prone skin that needs a little love now spring has sprung. Infused with Rosemary, Thyme and Lavender oils, this Kaolin clay based mask can be used twice a week and because you leave it on for ten minutes to work its magic, you will have time to paint your nails while it gets to work.

Our eyes are a real give away area if we are tired and not 100%. If this applies to you then your saving grace in S/S 17 is going to be the amazing Decleor Hydrotenser Anti-Fatigue Eye Serum. This intense treatment is jam packed with Hyaluronic Acid so it really does moisturise and rescue the delicate eye contour area. The serum can be used morning and evening and simply pat half a pump around the eye area, working from the outside inwards. Seeing is believing, but after the first use your eyes will feel more rested and look smooth and relaxed.

It’s not just our faces that take a battering during the colder months, our the neck and décolleté areas getting a pretty poor deal too. We love the Elemis Pro-Collagen Neck and Décolleté Balm because it helps firm and smooth delicate skin as well as improving elasticity and reducing the appearance of the crepiness we all hate seeing in the mirror. These results are achieved thanks to Sea Buckthorn oil, one of the richest known plant-sources of Fatty Acid Omega-7, being mixed with the Mediterranean algae, Padina Pavonica, that hydrates and nourishes and in no time has you smiling at your reflection, not running away from it.

From time to time we all need to restore firmness, elasticity and hydration to help our poor depleted skin and this is where the Dermalogica Power Rich comes in. Suitable for drier and prematurely-ageing skin, the pharmaceutical strength ingredients found in this product will win you over in no time. You simply smooth the product over cleansed skin morning and evening, paying attention to problem areas, and in just one week cell renewal rates and turnover will be improved and your skin’s ability to combat dehydration will be so much better. At £131 (a discounted RRP) this isn’t the cheapest product on the market, but in our opinion it is one of the best.
