There are some skincare products that stand the test of time in the beauty community, and become long-standing heroes for our complexions. One such product has to be the Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm by Elemis, which is known to remove makeup like a dream, and soften and hydrate skin in a super gentle way. However, its only potential ‘downside’ for those of us that like to keep our skincare super simple and stripped back is that it has a fragrance.
Luckily, Elemis seems to have listened to its huge fan base and have introduced a totally fragrance-free version of the balm, aptly named the ‘Naked’ version.
The new addition maintains all of the original’s biggest pulls, including the fact it transforms into an oil then a milk when massaged into the skin and washing away product no matter how stubborn. As well as its effectiveness in makeup removal, the formula is also rich in fatty acids and nutrients, and leaves the skin feeling ultra-soft, hydrated, and soothed.
The Naked version is ideal for those of us who prefer to keep fragrance out of our skincare products, especially if we have sensitive skin. Fragrance — although a nice addition to any product — can react badly with sensitised skin, resulting in flare ups and reactions.
At present, Elemis’ new balm is limited edition, however if it sells well, we can surely hope they will add it into the range as a permanent fixture. This could certainly happen, just as it did with the Rose version, which is now here to stay.
The product is available to buy on Elemis’ website, and costs £44. Although as mentioned, this product is limited edition, so it may not be around for long, or could sell out soon. For this reason, we recommend pouncing on it now, and stocking up if you fall in love!
