Reviewed: Elemis Biotec Collection

As beauty editors, we get bombarded with a ton of new products every day (we know—tough life). Reviewed is a series where we report on some of the best products we’ve tried. Whether it’s a drugstore lipstick that lasted all day or a hand cream that saved us this winter, you’ll find all of our favorites in this column. Enjoy!

I've already regaled you all with my love for Elemis products. So of course when the UK-born brand launched a new collection, I had to get my hands on it. It comes with three components—a cleanser, day cream, and night cream all formulated to re-energize your skin (and perhaps as is true in my case, your life).

The brand created the Biotec range to address the way our skin responds to the unique lifestyle each and every one of us leads (how convenient is that?).

I was first introduced to the trio during a bespoke facial, a treatment Elemis is widely known for. First, I had a chat with Georgia Louise, Elemis’s new consulting facialist, and told her all about my skin woes. She took a look under a bright light and agreed with my diagnosis. I have usually dry skin but suffer from annoying congestion around my nose, chin, and the right side of my face (exactly where I hold my massive iPhone 6+). She suggested a treatment, and we got started. Louise said this collection was “designed to switch your skin back on,” as it improves skin function and cell communication to tackle each one of your concerns.

As she applied, foamed, and massaged the new products into my skin, I was immediately taken aback at how luxurious they felt—and how good they smelled. The aroma filled my nose—it's slightly savory, like rosemary and jasmine—and I was set. I couldn't wait to bring the products home.
