When it comes to our skincare routines, we’re firm believers that you shouldn’t have to sacrifice luxurious textures and decadent aromas in the quest to find products that really work. After all, efficacy and enjoyment shouldn’t be mutually exclusive, right? Whilst some skincare experts rightly warn against the effects of certain skin-irritating fragrances or breakout-inducing textures, we’re always on the hunt for products that feel good to use and actually deliver on results and we’ve found just the ticket—the Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm.
When it comes to spa-like cleansers that leave skin soft, nourished and glowing beyond belief, this cult product goes unrivalled—and that’s why it’s so exciting that Who What Wear has teamed up with Elemis to give away 200 Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balms (100g), worth £44 each, to our readers.

Besides being a hot favourite amongst team here, it is also considered an everyday staple for beauty buffs and editors far and wide. Formulated with just the right balance of nourishing oils and waxes, it melts away makeup and grime, revealing a complexion that practically beams health and radiancet.
And while skin health should of course be top priority when shopping for a cleanser, the issues with opting for something with no-frills is that it often leaves you with minimal incentive to go back. However, with a spa-like scent and a sumptuous texture that makes the very act of daily cleansing feel impossibly luxe and ritualistic, Elemis’s cult 3-in-1 balm cleanser (it starts off as a nourishing balm, then becomes a cleansing oil and finally turns into a hydrating milk) manages to turn the laborious act of daily cleansing into something you actually find yourself looking forward to. And isn’t that the key, really? To find a skin-loving cleanser so indulgent that skincare becomes a form of wellness rather than a pesky chore?
Forget joyless micellar waters and skin-drying face wipes, simply massage a pea-sized amount of the balm into dry skin and take in the aroma as it transforms into an oil to offer up a deep cleanse. To really reap the nourishing benefits, wet your hands and continue massaging to emulsify the oil into a deeply-hydrating milk. Remove the lot with a wet flannel or muslin cloth and behold a radiant, soothed and glowing complexion. The best bit about the whole thing? There’s a formula for everyone. While the original balm boasts multiple awards, those looking for a more balanced complexion might prefer the super-hydrating Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm and, if sensitivity is your issue, you can opt for a fragrance-free option too (the new Pro-Collagen Naked Cleansing Balm is particularly good at getting rid of stubborn mascara). Whatever your formula of choice, there isn’t a bathroom shelf in the land that we would deem truly complete without Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm.
