Press Sample

The challenges of modern life can have an impact on your circadian rhythms, causing your body, and your skin, to become out of sync. Powered by Peptide⁴ and exclusive extracts of Star ArvensisTM and Night Scented Stock, the ELEMIS Peptide4 24/7 Skin-Synchronizing Collection helps to support skin’s natural processes for a well-rested glow, day or night. Revive, brighten and hydrate. Skin appears radiant, replenished and hydrated.

Powered by flowers, the New Peptide4 Thousand Flower Facial Mask and Peptide4 Eye Recovery Cream join the Peptide4 Night Recovery Cream-Oil to make up this new skincare system. Star ingredient, Peptide4 is a yeast-derived peptide inspired by circadian rhythms to help synchronize the skin’s own internal clock and designed using advanced molecular biology, helps the complexion look revitalized, nourished and healthy upon waking. Now, you can get the well-rested, beautiful skin of your dreams, 24/7! The three products work together to optimize the rest period and renew and repair skin. And let’s face it, who gets enough sleep these days except maybe babies and dogs!

Step 1: Peptide4 Eye Recovery Cream $49  Apply morning and evening. This skin-synchronizing treatment combines the hydration of a moisturizer with the protection of an oil and is specifically formulated for the delicate eye area. Peptide⁴ helps revive the appearance of tired and overworked eyes to improve the appearance of under eye dark circles and reduce puffiness under eyes. This targets the appearance of dark shadows, for brighter eyes that look well-rested with the power of Hawkweed and Daisy Extracts. There’s also a whole host of optical blurring powders that’ll help to reduce dark circles. This eye cream provides deep hydration for the dry under eye area and feels so smooth and soothing! I like this so much I dubbed it one of my 7 must-try eye creams!

Step 2: Peptide4 Night Recovery Cream-Oil $59. This extraordinary night cream-oil combines the hydration of a moisturizing cream with the protection of an oil.  Perilla Seed and Night Scented Stock oils, exceptionally rich in Omegas and Vitamin E, leave skin feeling restored and replenished. Formulated for all skin types, Peptide4 Night Recovery Cream-Oil is perfect for anyone who wants to revive and nourish dull skin overnight. I use every evening on cleansed, dry skin and love the soothing feel and silky light texture. It absorbs super quick and has a very unique scent.

At first, I thought I sniffed anise but sweeter, after some research I’ve found the scent is from a flower called Night Stock. ELEMIS was the first company to extract the cold-pressed seed oil from this delicate flower, which releases its sweet aroma only in the evening hours. Grown for ELEMIS in the British countryside of East Anglia, the oil is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamin E. The result is smoother, healthier looking, more hydrated skin.

The other flower used in these revolutionary products is Star Arvensis, grown and cold-pressed in the UK exclusively for ELEMIS. The seeds from these tiny star-shaped flowers are one of the richest natural vegetable sources of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids. The seed oil has been shown to have a positive effect in reducing the appearance of fine lines and improving the feeling of elasticity in the skin around the eyes.

Step 3: Peptide4 Thousand Flower Facial Mask $45.  This mineral-rich face mask, formulated with skin-synchronizing Peptide⁴ and powered by thousands of fallen flowers, instantly revitalizes skin and reduces the appearance of pores. The velvety black Nordic Peat spreads across the face like a plush layer of creamy black velvet, never drying out and imparts radiance to lackluster skin. A trio of Willow Tree extracts, Lactic Acid, and Brazilian Black Clay gently exfoliates to help leave skin smooth and glowing, while Sweet Clover helps to gently tone and tighten the skin. It’s also good for sensitive skin and to calm redness. ELEMIS recommends using once a week for 15 minutes. I did feel a very slight tingling for a few minutes and then nothing. The cooling mask doesn’t harden or crack and the cooling sensation lasts the entire time you have to mask on. Just make sure to use a dark cloth to remove, because it’s black, probably due to the Nordic peat. My skin felt soft, supple and definitely looked fresher. I followed immediately with the cream-oil and went to bed. Next time I’ll use this mask before going out instead of before going to bed and wasting the glow on my dog who doesn’t care if she gets a peanut butter bone from her glowy or dull skinned mom. I swear she did a double-take when I had the black mask on though!

Bottom Line: the ELEMIS Peptide4 24/7 Skin-Synchronizing Collection is quite innovative, using Night Scented Stock oil and Star Arvensis oils which are new to skin care but high in fatty acids. The range is also full of peptides as well as omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamin E which are all great for over 40 skin. I love the texture and feel of these products, plus, you can get ELEMIS at Ulta Beauty!
