Review: Elemis Spa@Home Instant Refreshing Gel

On the cruise that I took in the summer I took advantage of the lovely facilities and went in for a massage complaining that I often got aching muscles and headaches. The masseuse recommended this miracle remedy. I didn't expect much of it, since they tried to sell me a lot of items, but it's effects did sound very good!

Here's what the package says:
"This powerful synergy combines soothing extracts of arnica, birch and witch hazel, with cooling camphor and menthol. Muli-functional, this instant revitaliser is perfect for tired legs and muscle tension, especially on the shoulders, neck, temples and across the forehead. Ideal for travelling."

I was also pleasantly surprised to find that Elemis is based in the UK, does not test on animals and has the motto "Defined by Nature, Led by Science"- sounds like my perfect company!

Now, onto the product itself - I have used this gel for headaches a million times over since the summer and the spa didn't lie, it really is a miracle remedy (and there also seems to be a never-ending supply - its still really full!). I've had severe headaches and migraines that medication has failed to banish, but in a few short minutes this gel has my head soothed and relaxed. I take it everywhere with me!

How it works: You take about a bean sized amount and simply rub gently onto the forehead and massage into the temples. You get a burning sensation and then a very cold one, and voila - headache is gone!

I've been running around getting anyone I can to try this and it worked for them all too! I have also tried this on the back of my neck once and experience similar results. I cannot recommend this product enough!

I went looking around the internet to check that I can definitely buy this product in the UK because I don't know what I'd do without it, I found it at Elemis Time to Spa, John Lewis and Feel Unique (all priced at £27.60) While this may seem a little expensive I can honestly say it's 100% more than worth it for quality and how long it lasts!
*This product was purchased with my own money and I was not asked to review it, all opinions are 100% my own.
