Purple Orchid is rich in moisturising polysaccharides. Skin protecting polyphenols, shown to protect the dermal matrix from enzymation degradation of skin proteins such as collagen and elastin, help fight the early signs of skin ageing.
Used as an adaptogen in this formula, it possesses the ability to increase the body’s capacity to adapt to stressful conditions, specifically helping to relax the skin.
Acai is nutrient-rich with proteins, vitamins, sugars and trace elements. With naturally high levels of Vitamin C it is a powerful anti-oxidant and helps maintain skin's structural integrity.
Apply morning and evening to cleansed, dry skin. Can be applied when a radiance boost is required.
Suitable for all skin types. Multi-functional product. Use as a light daily moisturiser, fantastic as a introductory anti-ageing moisturiser. Can also be used as a radiance booster, or make-up primer over your regular moisturiser. Avoid contact with eyes. Squeeze a pea size amount into the palms and warm together, smooth all over the face.
Can be blended with your regular liquid foundation prior to application to create a light make-up application with priming results.
I have been using this as a moisturiser, and the texture is lovely. It's a light but thick lotion, easy to apply and sinks in quickly but the hydration lasts all day. You only need to use a little, I've been using mine for a good few weeks and it still feels full, so value for money too.
I found the smell very overpowering, and it made me feel ill at first as I could smell it for hours after, I suffer severe hay fever and its a strong floral smell. Maybe I can smell it more as it's a scent I'm sensitive too, but I stuck with it and now I can barely notice it after application if I don't apply it anywhere near the eye area. My skin texture is improved and looks more even, I don't wear foundation, but I guess that would make it a good base.
If I could change anything it would be a more subtle smell and I'd add SPF as it's something I consider essential in a moisturiser. All in all a nice product.

I've used this product for seven days and have noticed a difference in my skin. It no longer looks dull and has a healthy glow. A great product for 'non makeup days'.
The balm has a creamy texture and is easily
absorbed into the skin. At first, I didn't
particularly like the scent; however after a few days I didn't even notice it.
This is a fantastic product which I would not be without. Have used it instead of my usual moisturiser and it works well, but if used on top of usual moisturiser, the results are even more beneficial. With or without moisturiser I find I only have to use a pea sized amount for even coverage and foundation just glides evenly over the surface giving a radiant and smooth appearance which lasts all day and gives a professional look. Added bonus after using for about 3 weeks I noticed a definite firming and uplifting of skin, especially around the jawline area and skin feels nicely hydrated with regular use. Has a thicker texture than other regular make-up primers I have used, which I like and of course, achieves so much more and has a pleasant, calming fragrance. All in all a super product with multiple benefits
I've been using this product for some time now and have to say that I have noticed a vast improvement in my skin.
I have used it on top of my normal moisturiser and also straight on to my skin as a moisturiser. My skin appears more glowing/dewy when it is used in either context.
I have noticed that my skin feels softer and has a more even feel to it's standard combination oily/dry/standard areas.
The smell is great too - it reminds me of holidays when I was younger and the suntan lotion. I like the fact that it is a clean smell and not to overpowering.
It is also great for skin after a night out on the town :)
I received this product at a time when I had rough and dry skin, possibly due to the change in weather. It is moisturising and makes your skin look radiant without looking oily. It also doesn't have to rely upon fine pieces of glitter to add radiance.
Others have c8mmented on the smell but I think the smell is relaxing and not too potent. It smells like a mild lavender so would be ideal to apply at night, before bed as a deep moisturising mask.
I was asked to review this product & have so far used it for about 2 weeks. I suffer from dehydration lines around my eyes at times & I found this made them look more soft focus so they were not so noticeable. I liked the scent & texture of the product & it sank in well over the rest of my face. I found it to be a good primer before using mineral make up. Overall I am very pleased with this flash balm & will make this part of my daily skincare regime.
I was asked to test this product and although I had used it before and pushed it to one side, I am glad I tried this one again. In just 3 days I could visibly see a difference. it brightens your complexion and looks radiant. It looks very dewy and gives a very healthy look to my 50 year old skin. At the moment I am using it with the Elemis Total glow Bronzing moisturiser and together are making a fabulous difference to the look of my skin. The flash balm is a light cream and you only need a small amount so the tube is very economical. The smell is beautiful and I will definately keep using the flash balm from now on. Thank you Elemis for another great product.
