Elemis Fruit Active + Pro-collagen Masks

Elemis Fruit Active and Pro-collagen Quartz Masks
Elemis is a brand that I have heard so much about with regards to their skincare and bodycare; I've only tried a couple of their body products but I have been impressed so when two of their masks arrived, I was excited to try them especially as Elemis skincare is always so highly rated. 


This mask contains strawberry and kiwi extracts to deep cleanse, rejuvenate and lift the tone of the skin as well as adding a boost of moisture and reducing the look of tired, dull skin. The mask looks like a creamy clay mask, it doesn't really harden on the skin at all and it smells amazing - the scent is so nostalgic to me but I can't put my finger on why! My mum recognises the scent too but we don't know where from. I apply a thin layer of the mask with a flat foundation brush onto my t-zone; I have only used these masks on my t-zone as I do have areas of sensitivity around my eyes so I don't tend to put any masks there and this mask is targeted towards brightening and deep cleansing which is what my congested t-zone needs right now. The packaging states that tingling may occur and I did experience a little tingling but nothing too much or uncomfortable by any means. I generally leave masks on for only ten minutes and wash off with a warm muslin cloth. The mask leaves my skin feeling incredibly smooth, soft and thoroughly clean without stripping or irritating the skin. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.


Elemis, in my opinion, is a great brand of more mature skin and anti-ageing products; this mask is a Beauty Bible award winner for anti-ageing! The mask contains quartz, moringa and argan extract to instantly uplift the skin resulting in smoother, supple and firmer skin. The mask comes in such luxe packaging with a pump which is fantastic as applying masks is a messy business anyway but a pump dispenser makes it quicker and far less messy. The mask has a cream consistency and it smells very clean - like baby powder to me. As with the first mask, I apply with a clean flat foundation brush onto my t-zone and also my jaw. The mask doesn't harden, it feels gentle on the skin and doesn't irritate. Both masks are quick and easy to wash off with a muslin cloth and it leaves my skin looking and feeling soft, clean, smooth and very slightly firmer although I don't really know if it is this mask to be honest, it could be a placebo effect of simply using an anti-ageing mask. Also this mask isn't really aimed at women/men at my age of 22 (23 this time next week *cries*) so I'm going to get my mum to test it too and I'll report back! Overall rating: ★★★☆☆, 3/5.

Overall, I think both masks look expensive and fancy so they would make a nice treat for yourself or someone else. Elemis is such a well know, tried and tested brand with good ethics - they don't test on animals which is a big plus for me. For me the Fruit Active Rejuvenating mask was fantastic, it did make my skin look and feel so much nicer and it made my skin texture so much smoother compared to the areas where I didn't apply the mask! The Pro-Collagen mask is great too and I adore the packaging and pump dispenser although I don't think I will get many results with it as I am only 22 but I'll pass it onto my mum to see what she thinks of it. I am definitely interested in trying other products from Elemis, the body scrubs, milk bath and body oils all sound amazing.

Have you tried any Elemis face masks or any other Elemis products?
