I have been listening to folks RAVE about ELEMIS skincare products for some time now, specifically their Pro-Collagen Marine Cream, and miracle-working Eye Revive (Shana’s Fav). So when ELEMIS reached out to TME about a collaboration, it was a no-brainer that my winter dry skin would LOOOOOOOVE to try their luxe, ultra-moisturizing skincare products.
The Best of ELEMIS Mini Set (full of moisturizing favorites) is under $80 right now with our discount code SHANA20– a great way to try 6 of their most popular products!
And the Full-Size Ultimate Pro-Collagen Set is under $300 with discount code (worth $580!).

I immediately turned to social media to ask what products I should try. I knew a ton of TME followers already have (and love) ELEMIS products, and they would be the best place to start.
I was correct. I was, of course, not surprised to hear recommendations for the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream and the Pro-Collagen Eye Revive; everyone loves these for anti-wrinkle moisturization (ummmm, who wouldn’t love “anti-wrinkle” and “moisture” put together?), but readers also recommended ELEMIS’ skin buff (for deep cleansing exfoliation), the liquid glow (for radiance boosting), the eye serum (for puffy and tired-looking eyes), the rose cleansing balm (for a hydrating cleanser)…and frankly, the list went on and on.
Dry Winter Skin? An ELEMIS Skincare Routine For Bounce, Hydration & Anti-Wrinkle Magic
Everything I tried (per recommendations) was perfectly moisturizing and absolutely lovely. Think: thick and luxurious (but goes on like silk) and locks in ALLLLL the moisture. My winter skin is in heaven!
**Holiday Note: ELEMIS has a fabulous selection of gift sets perfect for anyone who would appreciate an indulgent self-care holiday treat. OR another great option…treat YOURSELF to trying out ELEMIS products. 20% discount with code SHANA20.
My skin definitely dries up in winter, so I knew I wanted to start my ELEMIS exploration with moisturizing products that also address wrinkles, since mine tend to be more visible during winter. I didn’t want to overhaul my current skincare routine, instead, just add in a few of ELEMIS’s special products to see how these simple changes would feel.
The results were SO good, however, I now want to try ALL their products — I was afraid this would happen. Below is what I’m incorporating into my routine for now:
1. Start With A Quick Resurfacing (AM & PM):
Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Pads
These little guys are tiny and feel super-gentle, but they pack a mighty punch! The absolute easiest way to exfoliate and provide a perfect surface for your skin to drink up all of its other products. The ELEMIS resurfacing pads are formulated to help create smoother-looking skin and accelerate your skin’s natural turnover –I feel that already! Bonus: my skin feels ultra-soft after every use, and I’m a huge fan of how SUPER easy it is to incorporate into my AM and PM skincare routine.
2. Use a Richer Morning Moisturizer:
Pro-Collagen Marine Cream
This magic cream feels WILDLY luxurious. Thick and creamy, but goes on like silk. It’s such a treat to put on every single morning, and my skin feels ultra-moisturized all day long…it’s a total winter skin win! I’m using the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream with SPF, but it also comes in a formula without SPF and an ultra-rich formula as well (the regular is plenty rich for me).
3. Add In Extra Moisture For Night:
Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream
The ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream is absolutely lovely. Rich and luxurious (like the AM cream), but I love that it does all its hard work while you’re sleeping. This cream is formulated to improve skin firmness and elasticity while providing plenty of moisture. I love the way my skin feels when I wake up after using this product..soft and moisturized with a nice natural glow.
4. Switch To An Eye Mask At Night:
Pro-Collagen Eye Revive Mask
This special guy was a surprise favorite. He is a miracle worker. They recommend using the Eye Revive Mask a minimum of three times a week, but I find myself wanting to use this special product every single morning and every single night…and sometimes during the middle of the day too (on days when I didn’t get enough sleep). It goes on thicker than my usual eye treatments, and the consistency reminds Shana and I of the most wonderful whipped lemon souffle. It instantly locks in all the moisture and plumps that delicate eye skin area for firmer, completely rejuvenated, well-rested-looking eyes. LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
Thank you so much to ShopStyle Collective and ELEMIS for sponsoring this post! It is BEYOND a pleasure to try out your skincare products, and I am now thrilled to be incorporating them into my regular skincare routine (especially for dry winter skin). Such a luxurious treat!
