Skin care at its best

As I have an allergy to Parfum, I had to find a product without it. I found Elave and have been using it for years with great satisfaction. I particularly like their daily skin defense SPF 45. Which acts as a moisturizer and sun screen in one.

Perfect for me

A colleague just happened to be talking about how allergic she is to most things and mentioned this product. I have very sensitive skin and I love products (but end up giving most away as i react to them) and am always buying products. No more... I've found my forever brand. I have had red skin for so long now I've got used to looking at it as normal but after the moisturizer and Cleanser.. no more red.. I wasn't expecting that. No fancy perfume smell, which was probably causing the redness, this is now my forever skin care. No more wasting thousands (and that's not an exaggeration) Elave is amazing. I love it.

Lovely products

Really lovely reasonably priced set. I have recently developed dermatitis and this is perfect for keeping things simple whilst giving my skin what it needs at the moment. Delivered within a few days and beautifully packaged. Received a full size bottle of shampoo free with my order which was a lovely bonus. Will definitely order again.

Simply amazing my 'Glow' is back

My life has been enriched and my confidence is back. Finding these wonderful, affordable and easy to use products has given me a glow and confidence in my own skin.

I really struggled with my skin, I didn't have the confidence to go out without covering up the red and sore patches mostly on my chin, forehead and around my nose, I couldn't find anything that worked for me I was living with discoloured and scared skin which caused me to hide behind heavy makeup.

Not anymore my skin is clear, soft and has a glow, I'm happy to go makeup free with the confidence that my skin is protected and nourished throughout the day. The SPF 45 is my constant, I won't leave home without it.

I adore the skin balancing cleansing gel, I look forward to starting my day with it and in the evenings getting home and cleaning the day away, it leaves me feeling refreshed, relaxed and comfortable in my own skin.

Bonus that I'm able to feel good in myself and also support an Irish Company with a strong biodiversity and climate ethos.

Great value kit

Gentle on sensitive skin.
