Elemis Hydra Balance Day Cream Review

9:00 am

Elemis's Hydra Balance Day Cream is a rich moisturiser for combination skin. It balances, comforts and moisturises the skin, leaving it feeling smooth soft and hydrated.

I was recommended this product by one of the staff working at the Elemis counter at the beauty show a few months ago. I wanted a moisturiser that I could apply before my makeup to keep my skin looking young and refreshed. 

I've been using the day cream for a few months now and it does leave my skin feeling moisturised, soft and tight. It dries quickly on my skin, which is great for when I'm applying makeup over the top of it. It doesn't irritate or cause breakouts on my sensitive skin which makes it suiable for all age types, whether you are a teenager or older. My only problem with this day cream, and is the reason why I wouldn't purchase it again, is the smell. I want my face creams to smell fresh, clean and nice. I want them to make me want to use them. The Elemis Hydra Balance Cream smells stale and musky. It's quite off putting and makes you want to throw it away. 

It's such a shame that a lovely day cream is let down by a horrible smell. Hopefully Elemis will change the ingredients and make it smell a bit better. Until then, I won't be buying it again. However if you don't mind the smell of your creams, you can purchase the day cream for £38 from any Elemis counter.
