beauty product review: elemis superfood skincare!



Happy Friday friends! One of my favorite parts of this job is the opportunity to try out and research a wide variety of products, and share my honest feedback with y’all! My hope is always that I can help guide your search and make shopping a little easier. I feel like beauty products, especially skincare, can be so overwhelming. There are so many different lines and products out there, it can be tough to know where to begin. Today I’m sharing a thorough, honest product review on the Elemis Superfood Skincare line. I’ve been using these products for a few weeks now, so I wanted to give y’all my feedback!


Another reason I wanted to highlight Elemis for y’all is because all of the products in today’s post are totally vegan + cruelty-free. I am asked all the time about vegan skincare and this is the only one I’ve tried that I truly believe in + love. I always want to keep in mind that every one has different needs, budgets, priorities, and goals when it comes to skincare. That’s definitely something I’m prioritizing in the coming months on the blog – spotlighting beauty + skincare brands I love and recommend to my readers, so y’all have a diverse selection to choose from based on your specific preferences. I obviously can’t use every single product/brand every day, but I can promise you that I only share the stuff I genuinely believe in and am willing to recommend to y’all. Now, onto the products and my review!


Elemis recently launched a Superfood Skincare line, and all of the products are packed with so much goodness to give you healthy, glowing skin. I’ve used other Elemis products in the past (these eye pads are AMAZING!), so I was really excited when I got to try some of their new products. The superfood skincare line is loaded with antioxidants, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals – all really solid ingredients that work wonders for your skin. Here are some of my favorites:

Blackcurrant Jelly Exfoliator
I looove a jelly exfoliator because it’s effective, but also really gentle and doesn’t feel too abrasive on your skin. It’s really good to regularly exfoliate your skin (about 2x a week), especially in the dry winter months. This blackcurrant exfoliator has the ‘grit’ you want in an exfoliator, but the jelly consistency makes it so much more soothing and gentle on your face. It’s great at removing any dead skin and softening your face in the process. This stuff smells so good and leaves my skin feeling noticeably softer. Plus, it’s a great price point!


Vital Veggie Mask
Because let’s be real, nothing says self-care like a good face mask! This one is basically like a green juice for your face (it even has kale + wheatgrass!). This mask also has avocado and chia seed oil in it, which we all know are really good for your skin. If you’re looking for a way to brighten up dull complexion, I would recommend using this a couple times a week as well. It really leaves your skin with a more plump, dewy finish and over time I noticed it also helps with evening out my overall complexion. It’s also under $40!



Kefir Tea Mist
This is a multifunctional mist that you can use a toner, primer, and even to set your makeup! It may be my favorite product out of them all. I primarily used it as a toner, but I love that it can also help with your beauty routine. You can even use it as just an extra boost of hydration when you’re on the go and need a little moisture. It’s loaded up with antioxidants and tea extracts that are known specifically for giving a more radiant glow to the skin. With spring and summer right around the corner, this is such a good product to have on hand!


Berry Boost Mask
This mask is aimed at purifying the skin and removing any excess oil or impurities in your pores. I feel like some face masks have super specific purposes (brightening, exfoliating, etc) but I love that this one is just kind of an all in one, purifying face mask. It gives your skin a good deep cleanse and really balances out your skin (especially the T-zone, which is prone to more oil production). This one smells SO good and you can really use it anytime you feel like your skin needs a little pick me up! If your skin is more on the oily side, this will seriously be your new favorite mask. 


My personal faves from the Elemis Superfood line:


I started trying out these specific products about a month ago, but I’ve been familiar with (and loved!) Elemis for a lot longer than that. I love that it’s a vegan, cruelty-free skincare line that doesn’t totally break the bank. The superfood line truly does nourish your skin and just give it all of the goodness it craves! Let me know in the comments below if you have any other products or lines you want me to share a full review of. As always, it’s so important for me to share a variety of products and price points, because I know not everyone will love/need the same stuff. I hope today’s blog post was helpful for you as you try to step up your skincare game! Thanks friends and have a great weekend!

This post was created in collaboration with Elemis. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own!
