Review: Elemis Quiet Mind Elixir + Balm

Wednesday, January 07, 2015
Months ago I asked on Twitter for sleep/relaxing product recomendations and Elemis gave me a couple of product recommendations and they very kindly sent me two products from the Elemis Quiet Mind range! I completely forgot about this post but I have been using these products on and off (sparing) for ages now, here are my thoughts!

*Elemis Quiet Mind Temple Balm - Soothing Pulse Point Gel (15ml, £17): This was the product I was most excited to try, I haven't used anything like this before; also I haven't used anything from Elemis until now. Firstly, the packaging for both products is just gorgeous, it looks so simple but luxe and expensive! The temple balm comes in a small 15ml bottle (full size) with a pump dispenser. It says 'temple balm' and 'pulse point gel' - it is a gel, not a balm. The scent is heavenly, it smells like musky lavender with hints of vanilla and oats/malt; it may not contain these ingredients but that is what it smells like to me! I think it does really help me relax and drift off quicker and easier. I apply a small pump of the gel onto my finger tips then apply a dot to my temples, ear lobes and neck then gentle massage in but mostly onto my neck. It doesn't leave any greasy residue. Overall, I am very impressed! ★★★★★, 5/5!

Secondly, the *Elemis Quiet Mind Relaxing Bath Elixir (300ml, £22 - I have the 100ml travel size): I have noticed a few sites selling two bottles of the full size for the price of one. The scent is just gorgeous, it smells very similar to the temple balm pulse point gel - a mix of lavender and malt, to me. I don't think I have used a bath elixir before so I didn't know whether it would lather up or not, it turns out that it doesn't really. There were a few bubbles but hardly any, however the scent was still quite strong and it was very relaxing - great for relieving muscle tension and stress. You only need a small amount each time and overall it is a lovely product to use. If I was being picky I would want the scent to be a bit stronger as the scent is so gorgeous. ★★★★★, 5/5!


Have you tried any products from this range? What are your top tips for relaxation?

  1. I have not tried any products from this brand but they sound really great! When I want to relax I just turn off all my electronics and lay down on my bed and take a long nap

  5. I absolutely love this stuff, I had a sample size not long ago and I'm really sad that I've used it all up. Going to have to get a full-size I think.
