Elemis Limited Edition Papaya Enzyme Peel
As brands go - very few have an entire offering of masks which are all not only amazing, but must-haves. Elemis is one of them. Exotic Cream Moisturising, Fruit Active Rejuvenating and Herbal Lavender Repair are all brilliant. The Gentle Rose Exfoliator is the only one my mum will use on her medicated lupus skin due to its gentleness.
The Papaya Enzyme Peel is to my mind, the most gentle of the masks. It's designed to regenerate tired and sensitive skin and does so without the rubbing off/sloughing off stage - the part that most people find irritating due to the friction caused.
To celebrate its 10 years Elemis commissioned Laura Oakes, a British (obvs) born designer to create limited packaging showcasing the key ingredients - namely papaya and pineapple from Africa. Being Elemis - a brand with a history of great CSR and charitable initiatives - they have linked up with SOCO - a charity dedicated to alleviating poverty, malnutrition and aiding the underprivileged around the globe.
So for every PEP sold, Elemis are donating £1.07/$1.75/1.34E to provide one '5 in 1' Pentavalent vaccine to immunise a child in Africa against diptheria, tetanus, whooping cough, hepatitis b and haemophilus influenza type b.
Elemis are aiming to provide 20,000 vaccines.
From 1st June you can go help them do that. And help your face at the same time.
