Rated 4 out of 5 by MKPstamps EXCELLENT PRODUCTS, ONLY 4 **** CAUSE OF BOTTLE DE
I already had Elemis products and loved them from cruises. The ability to get them on QVC is a blessing. If you break it down by price/ounce and compare it to cruise line prices, this kit is a deal. I needed the Marine Cream and was thrilled to get the Frangipani Oil and wash. I wasn't familiar with the balm, so it was a nice extra to try.
I'm almost 62, have lots of allergies and asthma, extremely sensitive, dry skin, and Rosecea, with medication from the dermatologist. The marine cream and night time Marine cream have allowed me to back off of the nasty smelling stuff the dr gave me. I rarely have to use it. Plus it is extremely heavy...not great to use when our weather is sometimes over 110°for. With regular Marine cream use I am very happy to be able to leave medication that feels as if I'm smearing grease on my face in a drawer. As far as scent, because of allergies/asthma, I don't have any fragrances I can wear. The scent is very delicate and hasn't affected my breathing at all. I find the scent dissipates in moments after application.
The Frangipani cleanser and oil was a gift! I bought the LG bottle of the oil on our last Cruise, put some in an empty Opi cuticle oil brush container and use it for my cuticles. Occasionally, for special events, I'll use the wash and oil together. The wash is not a foaming wash. One responder said she couldn't get oil out of the bottle. NOTE: FRANGIPANI OIL IS IN A COCONUT OIL BASE THAT IS SOLID AT ROOM TEMPERATURE. YOU MUST HEAT IT SLIGHTLY TO GET IT TO POUR OUT. I put it in the window when it is hot, in a sink of warm water, or put it under my arm while I gather my clothes. Then it will pour out just fine. As it cools off, it will solidify again. I love having the smaller bottle for travel. I do not like those stupid little thin silver screw top lids. They are NOT senior-hand friendly. Don't open near an unplugged sink. ELEMIS please rethink this design flaw.
I dId not like the balm cleanser. It was much too heavy for my skin., even in winter when it's dryer. I gave it to a friend who also has become an Elemis convert.

These products are high end spa treatments .
The oil I put in warm water water in sink to melt in then pour onto hands to rub into ends of my hair , makes a good conditioner .
The face cream smells so good , aromatherapy treat , and it soaks in your skin well too .
The face cleaner has a nice aroma while rubbing in .and removing makeup
The shower cream is good a nice experience with exotic scents .and makes skin soft
This kit is an experience for anyone that needs a treat .

I really wanted to try the cleansing balm. Then I read the directions and discovered that it is not safe in the area of the eye. So I used it on my face and it completely dried my skin from normal with a little oil to super dry. I am now attempting to put oil back into my face using Argan oil. The moisturizer did nothing for me at all.

I went on a Norweigan Cruise last summer to Europe and had a spa day. Elemis were the products that were used on my face, I felt amazing after leaving the spa. They tried selling me some of the products but the prices were crazy over $200 dollars. I simply could not afford them, when I saw them on QVC i was so excited. TO START, The Marine Cream smells amazing and feels amazing. I like to use it before applying my makeup and let it sit for a few minutes before moving on to foundation. The cleansing balm is so silky and soft your skin feels so clean after using it. Give this line a try, you wont regret it.
Please make another show!!

I was not aware the scent was so strong is this product. When using the cleanser the scent remains after the cleanser has been removed. It is so strong it wakes me up in the night. In the daytime I feel the scent in the moisturizer is competing with my perfurme. If you prefer your beauty products not have a scent, the product is not for you!

I absolutely love these products. I recently had an Elemis facial at a local spa so already had a heads up on these. I found that it is best to remove makeup with another product such as Neutrogena facial wipes before using the balm on your face. I followed up with the balm after removing the makeup. I have never used a cleanser that left my face as soft as silk. LOVED IT!!! The marine cream is also wonderful. The after bath oil smells so good. I set it in the shower while bathing and it was ready to use after I toweled off. I can't afford to use the bathing products on a regular basis, but nice to use before a special night out.

Was unable to get any oil out of bottle. Either empty or dried up. The cream seemed ok but did not want to keep the order because of the oil bottle. Disappointed.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Not enough moisture for me
Was looking forward to trying this line after hearing good reviews. However it does not provide enough moisture for my 56 year old skin. It was left feeling tight and dry. It also has a strong fragrance.
