Elemental Herbology Oil Control Starter Kit

This is a great way to try a few Elemental Herbology products; a starter kit with cleanser, moisturiser, mask and peel. Out of the four products I have already tried three as full sizes and they are all amazing. The Light Moisture Milk was reviewed not so long ago (read the review here) and I am going to review the peel and the wash in the near future. There’s  enough product in these little tubes to keep you going for a couple of weeks at least if you don’t get too over-excited with your quantities. A nice way to try a new regime without committing to the full sizes.

This kit is great for oily or combination skin, skin that feels a little dull and lacklustre and skin that’s prone to the odd breakout. In terms of price-per-ml, the kit pays for itself with just the moisture milk and peel, so it’s actually very good value indeed.  You get 15ml of the milk and the peel (equivalent value over £20), 15ml of mask and 25ml of the face wash as well as a muslin cloth. Brilliant for taking on your travels! There’s a version for drier skin too, the Moisture Replenish Kit. 

The Elemental Herbology Oil Control Starter Kit is £20 with free delivery at FeelUnique.com

      I haven’t tried it so I can’t be absolutely certain, but I thought that it said somewhere or other that it was fine for sensitive skin.. x

    Hi Ruth,
    I absolutely love your blog/channel and everything you do for all of us ladies! Thank you so much for your excellent work! I wanted to ask you could review the Elizabeth Arden Prevage skincare line? Or if you have already used it what were your thoughts? I was given a sample of the day and night creams and loved the texture and wear of the products…I do see a difference in my overall skintone but I have only been using it for 10 days. As well as that line, L’Occitane came out with a Divine line and I bought the serum which is fantastic but it was actually the moisturizer that got so many beauty awards! Have you tried that line as well? Would love to hear your thoughts!!!

    Hey Ruth, Love reading all your blogs on the latest skincare and beauty buys! It all gets rather obsessive and expensive… I usually use elemis but Im getting bored and looking for something new and exciting. Im 25,combination/sensitive skin and concerned with a little ageing! Could you recommend a new brand to try which youve found impressive? P.s thanks for intro’ing me to liquid gold <3 !!!
