Elemis S.O.S Emergency Cream

I haven't spoken about skincare in a while and my goodness my skin has been terrible lately! I've mentioned a bunch of times on here how my skin just goes through a made phase when the weather changes, my skin gets so dry, so bumpy, sore and irritable.
I've tried to prevent this by drinking litres of water a day, having more 'pamper sundays' and just trying to really treat my skin so it doesn't go all gaga on me, however i've found nothing works!
I've been using this Elemis S.O.S Emergency Cream for the past 3-4 weeks and at first i must say i hated it, it really stung my skin and my face just felt really itchy after. I applied this before bed every night for about 3 days and eventually gave up when i saw no difference.. A week later i decided to give it another go and to my surprise it worked wonders! My skin was so much more hydrated and wasn't as dry and flakey it looked and felt much more bearable. 

After about 3 weeks of using this my lumps and bumps have almost vanished and my skin is almost restored to it's natural-self now. It's no longer dry, though at times it gets a tad dry on my cheeks but that's it!
The texture of this cream is much more like a serum, it's clear and has a really thin consistency which blends beautifully on the skin - at first i couldn't quite pick up the scent, it smelt similar then i finally picked on it, it has a scent of sudo-cream.. which i also apply to my face if my skin gets that bad.

Overall, really very impressed by this cream - it's definitely not cheap coming in at £51 for a 50ml bottle but if your skin really needs a good pick-me-up then i say it's well worth the money.
