Elemis Pro-Definition Day Cream Review

SKIN CARE REVIEWS

12.17.18 AD DISCLOSURE

The Elemis Pro-Definition Day Cream was designed to act as an anti-aging daytime moisturizer to wear underneath sun protection. The formula behind this product features a number of unique ingredients including plant stem cells, arjuna bark, starflower oil and lupin. But what do all of these ingredients do for the skin? Plant stem cells help to restore a youthful appearance to the skin, while arjuna bark helps to hydrate, firm and tighten the surface of the skin. Additionally, starflower oil acts as a moisturizing and nourishing emollient, which helps to soften and smooth the skin. Lupin also works to smooth skin texture, while also building up the skin’s resiliency. All together, this product works to create a more youthful looking appearance while hydrating and reinforcing your skin’s protective barrier throughout the day.
