Elemis Gentle Rose Exfoliator

Elemis has only recently become available in Australia, at Myer stores. It's a luxury British spa and skincare brand. Thanks to all the raves from my friend Music I couldn't resist buying a few products.

I'm really loving this scrub. It smells like roses and is very gentle. I can use it every second day and it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin at all. I dampen my skin and gently massage in light circular motions then remove it with warm water. It leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth and moisturised. I don't get any tightness or irritation like I do with some other scrubs.

Also, in the box was a sample of Daily Redness Relief. I've never known a company to include samples with their products like this, and think it's a great idea.

This is what Elemis has to say about Gentle Rose Exfoliator: Contains hydrating absolute of rose and micro-spherical jojoba beads to gently exfoliate the surface of the skin, leaving it silky smooth and soft to the touch. Cucumber extract, rich in vitamin c, a natural anti-oxidant, moisturises as it soothes and refreshes. Can be used daily to slough away dirt and dead skin cells to achieve a glowing, youthful complexion.

Would I buy it again? Definitely it's a gorgeous product.

Ingredients:water (aqua), glycerin, propylene glycol, jojoba esters, PEG/PPG-144/4 dimethicone, polysorbate 20, rosa damascena flower absolute, cucumis sativus (cucumber) fruit extract, carbomer, PEG-120 methyl glucose dioleate, tromethamine, sodium PCA, disodium EDTA, phenoxyethannol, PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil, methylparaben, butylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben, methylchloroisothiazolinone, red 4 (CI14700), methylisothiazolinone.


  1. Woohoo... there's another Elemis convert in Perth! Hehehehe... go and try the Spa Pod, it's great... apart from the shoppers noise outside - don't know why they don't put a roof on it!

    I still miss the original spa pods in UK, as they're in a real room, with scented candles and all. What to do, I'm difficult to please. LOL.

  2. I thought they were putting a roof on it, like you say, it seems silly not to have a roof, couldn't people upstairs see you? I don't like that idea much.

  3. Great review Glossqueen. Thanx to both music and yourself I might have to try the Elemis range. Will definately try the Spa Pod and take advantage of some GWP specials. This exfoliator sounds heavenly :)
