Tried & Tested: Elemis Cellular Recovery Skin Bliss Capsules


Elemis has long been looked up to as an authority on luxury skincare, with 25 years of wisdom behind them and an ever-expanding range of high-performance products, it’s easy to see why.

Born out of the vision to bring together the powers of nature, science and aromatics, the brand assure us that each and every product seeks to harness the dynamism of the highest-grade, naturally-sourced ingredients – and their latest offering certainly doesn’t disappoint.

Elemis Cellular Recovery Skin Bliss Capsules are designed to aid the detoxification of the skin, containing moringa oil to balance and protect it from the stresses and strains of everyday life. Packed with anti-oxidants, the nourishing ingredients endeavour to physically diminish the visible signs of ageing, targetting everything from wrinkles and fine lines to dull and lacklustre skin.

The treatment aims to create an effective base for the nutrients from your moisturisers to be absorbed, ridding the skin of any remaining impurities before your creams are applied. As if that wasn’t enough, these small yet mighty little capsules use signature aromas to provide a sensory experience – in fact, they even claim to increase the production of the ‘bliss’ hormones, endorphins. Need any more convincing?

The pink capsules are designed to be used in the morning, and are formulated with a rose absolute to provide skin with maximum renewing and revitalising energy throughout the day

For night time, the green capsules are packed with relaxing lavender oil to help renew cell equilibrium and increase cell repair throughout the night.

Both have the added benefits of being able to target blemishes and breakouts while soothing and hydrating the skin, ridding you of dry,dull skin to make way for radiance and youthfulness.

To use, the capsules are easily twisted open, and after a few moments warming the oil between your palms, it is ready to go. Whether morning or evening, it’s advisable to apply after cleansing and toning, massaging into the skin with the fingertips until fully absorbed.

After using the capsules for just over a month, I can confirm that they have made a huge difference to the appearance of my skin, leaving it smoother, brighter and better-hydrated than ever before. Although my skin type is considered to be ‘normal’, it still requires its fair share of nourishment to keep it at its best, and the Bliss Capsules certainly step up to the plate. Applying the evening capsules before bed and taking the time to thoroughly massage in the oils has become an enjoyable nightly ritual, with the soothing lavender oils proving the perfect nightcap for inducing the bed-time wind-down.

Despite the long list of claims one could easily dismiss, I have to admit that I’m suitably impressed. It’s another win for Elemis, and an absolute must for brighter, healthier-looking skin.
