Skin saviour!

Great moisturiser - if your skin is really dry and needs a reviver this is just what you need. When you put it on you can feel your skin saying thank you!

Amazing product

I would usually be quite shy about spending this much on a moisturiser but it really is worth it, I find it revives my skin when its feeling dead and gets rid of my blemishes. I would most certainly recommend!

Five stars, would definitely recommend!

This cream is absolutely amazing. I suffered acne throughout my late teens and into my early twenties and as a result of treatment my skin was left highly sensitive and red. It has helped my skin a bunch and has even begun to fade my red scars! (I've only been using it a week). I also used it on my blisters and it worked a treat!
It is very thick and I am unsure of whether I am using too much or not, because if I rub my face it can come off in lumps. It smells amazing too! Would recommend to anyone with problem skin.

A Minor Miracle

After being one of the Lucky ones for the first 42 years of my life, with very little break out and just the occasional spot, I developed rosacea acne on my cheek. Here entered my lovely Elemis consultant who recommended the SOS cream. I went away a bit lighter in the pocket with instruction to apply on effected area then use my regular moisturiser ( pro collagen Marine) every where else but NOT over the top of SOS cream.
Just 2 days later - instant relief - I find I have to keep up the usage but I am using such a small amount that I know my investment will last year.

Rescue Remedy

Since discovering SOS cream 7 years ago this has been a staple go to cream. I apply the SOS cream over night to specifically only the breakout areas rather than my entire face. This cream helps to reduce swelling that often occurs with my breakouts, and dries them out so that my skin clears up quickly.
As I have combination skin, I cannot apply the product as an every day moisturiser as others have suggested as I'm prone to building up congestion under my skin. However, on the occasions when I'm faced with lots of wind, or cold air ( whilst skiing etc.) this product is a must have for acting as a protective seal against the elements.

Sos cream

Amazing.....absolutely amazing!
Face comes out in blotches when stressed.
Was having eyelash extensions at the Hilton. Under eyes flushed bright red and beautician thought it looked like burns!!! She put some cream on the "burns"................by the time I went to my car the bright lines were gone. I absolutely could not believe it. I REALLY did not believe for one moment it was the cream. So on my next visit I asked for the name of the cream so I could try it. I still cannot believe it. It calms my raging red marks and would just not be without it. I am now looking at the Elemis creams for under eyes. I rate this 5 stars!!!!! But 4 could not be changed.
