New Products: Silk'n - Elemis - Éminence Organic Skin Care

Summer prep is the key theme of my 'top picks' of new launches this week, featuring a variety of body and face products promising sun kissed, hair free and radiant skin.

Silk'n - Silk'n Glide At Home Hair Removal


First up we have Silk'n Glide, a new compact at home hair removal device which is said to deliver a full body treatment in under 30 minutes. As someone very familiar with at  home laser hair removal (I have a Philips Lumea) this is quite some claim - it takes me about 20 minutes to do just the bottom half of both my legs!

The Silk'n Glide uses 'home pulsed light', a patented  technology not to be confused with 'Intense Pulsed Light'. Silk'n say its device delivers short pulses of optimum light energy which immediately deactivate the hair follicle. They also claim the device is the first on the market designed to incorporate darker skin tones - Fitzpatrick 4-5 - and is equipped with enough pulses (50,000) not to need replacement cartridges. Available to pre-order now at Very.co.uk, the Silk'n Glide costs £160. More info here 

Elemis - Total Glow Bronzing Moisturisers, Face & Body 


Elemis have launched their first ever gradual tan moisturisers. Total Glow Bronzing Body Lotion contains protective antioxidants of green tea extract, as well as elderberry seed and abyssinian essential oils for nourishing and conditioning the skin. Also in the formula is red algae for long-lasting firmness and hydration, plus Vegetan, which has been naturally derived from wheat, to subtly build a natural golden tan to the upper layers of the skin. Elemis say Total Glow Bronzing Body Lotion works to naturally mask the unpleasant aroma often associated with self-tanners, and builds a bronzed glow in 2-3 days. The lotion combines delicate floral notes with uplifting lemon and patchouli oils to capture the mood of summer and leave skin deliciously scented. It is priced at £34.50 for 200ml.

Also launched is a gradual tanner for the face. Total Glow Bronzing Moisturiser also contains green tea extract and Vegetan. It is further formulated with peach, bergamot and orange oil, together with rose and ylang ylang to offer a floral twist and leave skin delicately scented. Key ingredient evodia fruit extract, meanwhile, is said to improve the delivery of nutrients to the skin, boosting luminosity and brightness. Total Glow Bronzing Moisturiser costs £29.50 for 50ml. Both products will be available from May. More on Elemis here.


 

 

 

Éminence Organic Skin Care - Artic Berry Peel & Peptide Illuminating System


Moving away from body prep, but sticking with the theme of summer, my final top pick is a facial peel system launching in June from Éminence Organic Skin Care. The Arctic Berry Peel & Peptide Illuminating System is a three-step at-home solution to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots. Based on the botanically sourced oligopeptide from hibiscus seed, six natural acids and arctic plants and berries, the system comprises Arctic Berry Enzyme Exfoliant, Arctic Berry Advanced Peel Activator MA10, and Arctic Berry Peptide Radiance Cream.

To complement the range, a professional treatment, which includes a double-strength version of the peel activator, will launch in spas and salons nationwide. The kit costs £95, while the Arctic Berry Peptide Radiance Cream can be bought now as a standalone product for £69. More info here.

    1. Hi Ola. No I've never tried it but I do have a Philips Lumea IPL hair removal device. I totally love it. One of the best devices I have ever bought. The Philips machine is way more expensive than this Silk'n one. I couldn't say which is better without having tested both but IPL is the same technology as that used in professional clinics. The Silk'n uses a proprietary 'home pulsed light' but I am impressed at their claim that this can be used on very dark skin types as most cannot. Tx

    1. Hi Nayna, I know of the No! No! but I don't know it really well. Yes it does look similar but from what I understand the No! No! uses purely heat to treat the hair whereas the Silk'n uses light. I believe I'm right in saying that but happy to be corrected if wrong :) Tx

  3. I love the sound of the Elemis bronzing moisturisers for body and face. I hate the usual after smell that most self tanners leave so these sound like the ideal solution. x

    1. Hi Deborah, I too hate the smell of most tanners. Such a pong! I like that this is a gradual tanner too, less risk than a standard self tan. I remember our chat about face tanners - still not sure if I dare take the plunge! ;) Tx
