Party time for Elemis's Papaya Peel

This peel has to be one of my favourite masks. Ever! A must-have for many a make-up artist – they swear by it for jet-lagged skin, or for pores that need a pep up, Elemis are celebrating its 10th birthday with limited edition, eye popping packaging designed by British artist Laura Oakes.

The reason I’ve returned again and again to this mask over the last decade is simple, it works. Its workings are self explanatory in its sell – it uses the natural fruit enzyme Papain extracted from crushed Papaya and Pineapple sourced from Africa. Lovely to wear, this creamy, non-scratchy formula gets busy in just 10 minutes by gently melting away superficial dead skin cells, leaving skin feeling pleasantly hoovered. Pores look clearer and skin texture brighter and smoother. As for those with sensitive skins, there’s no fear of redness – it has a cut-off points so won’t over exfoliate. And, not to reshuffle the formulation after 10 years speaks for itself

 More than just making a splash with newly designed packaging, Elemis have also teamed up with the new charity SOCO to provide funding for over 50,000 vaccinations for children in Africa. Short for Socially Conscious, it’s a charity canvassing hard to alleviate poverty and malnutrition and to address healthcare and education issues in underprivileged societies. It warms the cockles of my heart when beauty companies go more than skin deep.

Elemis Limited Edition Papaya Enzyme Peel launches June 1st and costs £28.60.
