My *Current* Favorite Elemis Products

Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Pads: Elemis | Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm: Elemis | Superfood Midnight Facial: Elemis | Superfood Blackcurrant Jelly Exfoliator: Elemis

Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Pads: These pads are the newest addition to my Elemis routine. Best acid exfoliator I have found. Previously I was using Peter Thomas Roth’s pads and the Elemis blow those out of the water! You can truly feel you skin being cleansed as you go. This has definitely added to helping cleanse and perfect my skin. My skin has never been smoother, brighter and I truly feel like it glows. My acne/face bumps have diminished leaving my skin so smooth. I have read that some use it morning and night, but I only use it at night before the rest of my skincare, but after washing my face. I let it fully dry before continuing my routine.

Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm: This seems to be the holy grail of cleansing products. I have honestly lost count on how many times I have ordered this. Some reviews say it has a bit of a smell, but I don’t find it, I just affiliate it with clean skin (haha!). I use the cleansing balm both in the morning and at night. At night, I use a makeup remover wipe first and then use the balm to remove excess makeup and for a deep cleanse. This is followed by a face wash of your choice, mine is this Elemis face wash.

Superfood Midnight Facial: Small detail, but as far as skincare goes, I think this smells lovely. It is very light weight, but super hydrating. It soaks in easily without clogging pores and leaves my skin looking soft and refreshed. I apply it with a makeup brush to make sure it is evenly distributed everywhere. Plus it reminds me of getting a facial.

Superfood Blackcurrant Jelly Exfoliator: I think this is a wonderful exfoliator for the price. There isn’t an Elemis product I haven’t liked, so I might be bias. It is an effective facial scrub that leaves your skin feeling smooth and supple. It’s not too harsh on your skin and easy to wash off. For best results, I use it about 2-3 times a week, especially at night when I want to just really get the day off of me!


Welcome to Haute 2 Trot. My name is Sophia! I’m a twenty-something living in Denver, CO with my pup, Duma. Haute 2 Trot was started at the beginning of 2020 after following other fashion blogs for years. Fashion has always been a passion of mine and I wanted a way to express this love with other like minded people. My blog will explore not only my love of fashion, but my interests in makeup, and a little bit of my day-to-day life. I want Haute 2 Trot to offer fun, feminine finds to everyone!
