We all love a beauty bargain (especially as Christmas is starting to loom!) and whether you’re splashing out on a present or stocking up for yourself, this Elemis offer is just too good to miss.
News just in: there's an amazing QVC Elemis sale on the horizon. Head to qvcuk.com before midnight on Sunday 15th September, or tune in to QVC at 9pm on Saturday 14th September to get your hands on the Elemis Pro-Collagen Skincare Collection for just £67.98, instead of the usual £95. It's actually made up of two full-size products (the rose facial oil and advanced eye treatment), as well as special sizes of the ultra-rich marine cream and oxygenating night cream, so it’s amazing value. Snapping these up separately would set you back an eye-watering £206.
Unlike some sets (looking at you, eyeshadow palette with four wearable shades out of twelve) every single product in this collection is a brilliant Elemis sale buy and they all work seamlessly together to create a luxury day to night routine.
Tempted but wondering if this is a practical QVC Elemis sale purchase? It is! We recommend that if you invest in this set that you follow the rule of applying your products in order of thinnest to thickest formula. Start off your evening routine with a few drops of the rose facial oil. Best warmed in your hands first, place your hands over your nose and mouth and inhale before pressing the oil into your skin – a spa therapist trick that’s sure to help you relax.
Next up, take a little of the advanced eye treatment onto your ring finger and tap along your cheekbones and brow bone. Whether you pat or rub the cream in is up to you – just be sure not to drag on the skin (it’s super delicate here) and work outwards from the corners of your eyes to help aid lymphatic drainage and reduce puffiness.
Follow up with the night cream to lock in moisture, but use a light hand, it’s super rich and a little goes a long way. Working hard whilst you snooze, it supports your skin’s natural regeneration process to help you wake up for a firmer, brighter complexion.
For day time, the routine looks pretty similar, simply swap the night cream for the pro-collagen marine cream. Shielding skin from radiance-robbing free-radicals, it has been clinically proven to reduce the depth of fine lines and improve firmness in as little as 14 days. The rose oil isn’t a must for day, but might be a welcome addition to your routine if your skin is feeling dehydrated.
But our top piece of advice is to move quick - we predict a sell out because this truly is an amazing QVC Elemis sale offer.

She caught the magazine bug during a stint as Fashion Editor of her university newspaper alongside her English degree, and hasn’t looked back since. As for the fashion bug, that came as part and parcel of growing up in the 90s, but the less said about that the better!
Jess’ average day in the office is spent researching the latest fashion trends, chatting to industry tastemakers and scouring the internet to bring you this season’s must-buy pieces - as well as advice on how to wear them. Weekends are equally fashion-focused, and Jess has been known to visit no less than five Zara stores in a single day in search of the perfect occasion dress.
The only thing that comes close to a buzz of finally tracking down that much-coveted dress is the joy of discovering a new beauty wonder product or hero ingredient. A beauty obsessive, Jess has tried everything from cryotherapy to chemical peels (minus the Samantha in Sex and The City-worthy redness) and interviewed experts including Jo Malone and Trinny Woodall.
