I used to suffer from really dry patches on my face but since using the intense moisture surge my skin is soft and the dry patches are gone. It's a great base for make-up. Well worth the price.
I love the daily skin defence SPF 45+. It's ideal for using with make-up and the Vitamin C leave my skin glowing and fresh.
I was so sick of white horrible sunblock under my makeup. Since discovering elave daily skin defence I am happy to wear sunblock everyday. I feel like my face is protected and I wouldn’t even know I was wearing it. Its great under make-up. THANKS.
I was lucky enough to find Elave, by accident, while browsing randomly in a Boots store one year ago. For someone with acne prone skin + eczema + extremely sensitive skin + extremely oily skin (+ etc) like myself, coming across a product like Elave's bodywash and intensive cream has been life changing, so say the least. My skin condition improved amazingly, compared to all other products I had used so far, including "sensitive" products from very well-renowned cosmetic companies. Reading their labels was like reading my own death sentence, with the amount of chemicals they use. Got to know, recently, that Elave has an oil-free balancing cleasing gel and balancing moisturizer which I will be definitely buying anytime soon, to complement what I already have. Keep up the amazing work! I couldn't be any happier for using your products and I keep telling everyone about it whenever I get the chance.
I love the new oil free product range as I have quite oily/acne prone skin in the T-zone, I prefer to use products that don't contain any chemicals so the Elave Oil Facial Range is perfect for my skin. Love it!
I had been using La Roche-Posay products for years. While they are very good they are a little bit more expensive than other ranges. Watching the Late Late Show one night last year Elave gave a hamper of their products to the audience. I decided to have a look at them in Boots and tried their Intensive Cream. I loved it and felt it was actually better than the equivalent in La Roche-Posay. I have since changed to all of Elave products and am delighted I am also buying Irish.
I have mild psoriasis on my scalp. I had been trying various different products and had got a range that worked - most of the time. I came across Elave conditioner and tried it. It worked an absolute treat and my scalp feels great - all the time.
A tip for those who get occasional nose-bleeds, sometimes caused by central heating or even the great sunny weather we've been having. I attributed the ones I used to have to being in centrally-heated rooms during the winter. I put a dab of Intensive Cream in each nostril, morning & night, and never have a nose-bleed now.
After many years of going unsuccessfully from one product to another seeking out a treatment for my dry skin I came across Elave intensive cream. I am absolutely delighted with the results. So much that I have recommended it to all my family and friends. I cannot rate this product highly enough as it has completely transformed my dry skin from an itchy red and irritating condition to a much healthier itch free and blotch free all over skin that I have not had for as long as I remember. Once again it is an excellent product with equally excellent price. This is my first time writing in concerning any product but I felt I had to just express my happiness with this Elave intensive cream. Thank you from me and my skin. Keep up the good work. Yours sincerely.
At last a range of products that really delivers glowing softer skin. My cheeks were red and dry and now my whole skin tone is better. I recommend age delay cleanser & night treatment with Glycolic acid with the daily skin defence SPF 45+ everyday under makeup. People are asking me whether I had a chemical peel!
I absolutely love elave and I'm extremely happy to see it at the new Duane Reade drugstore in Manhattan. The age delay night treatment is the best.
I had skin reaction after skin reaction from anti-ageing products. NOT ANY MORE. At last even though I have ultra-sensitive skin I can use an anti-ageing range – for the first time!. My skin is unrecognizable. I am even using the Age Delay cleanser & Night Treatment with Glycolic acid. The intense moisture surge is really awesome.
I am writing to let you know that your products have literally changed my life for the better in a matter of 4 days. I have suffered with a sever case of folliculitis on my scalp, face and back since 2005. It all started when I was travelling back and forward to Thailand with my wife where it was extremely humid and witihn a few months of returning to Europe I started to have scalp issues. This then gradually got extremely worse over time. A mixture of hair styling products and shampoos that seemed to react to my scalp once my body had overheated in the tropical climate was now what I know was the culprit.
I was using every mild soap, cleanser, shampoo, moisturiser that had claimed to be natural and I had no idea that "Parabens" were the cause of this horrid condition. I even went as far as to take medication thinking it may have been Demodex Mites causing the intense itching at night time.
It was enough to drive close to suicide. My self esteem had been ruined after finishing with bad acne at 20 and then this arose at 25 onwards.
After years of trawling the web, going to dermatologists and various doctors for blood tests, taking allergy tests, taking a plethora of antibiotics for swollen lymph nodes resulting from the severity of the condition I was finally introduced to your products from a pharmacist while going for a flu jab in Boots in Liffey Valley, Dublin.
How not one of these dermatologists had mentioned this before to me is a outrage and a joke. I would have saved hundreds of euro's worth of visits for nothing. All I was given was its just folliculitis I am literally jumping for joy everytime I look in the mirror for the last 7 days as my life has started again. I want to thank you all at Elave for making such an amazing line of products. I will always recommend your company to anyone suffering with skin conditions in the future.
I'm using the sensitive shampoo & body wash and they have been phenomenal.
I owe you guys a million thank you's - its been a miracle!!!!!!!
As part of my job I have to wash my hands very frequently and always found my hands extremely dry and cracked when I used ordinary liquid hand wash. A friend recommended that I try elave wash and I absolutely love it. My hands no longer crack from all the washing and now I wouldn't use anything else. :)
Having been plagued with continual patches of extremely irritating eczema for years I had all but given up finding anything that would alleviate the problem. Then I found elave. I use the Dermatological body wash, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, intensive cream, shave gel and daily skin defence. My skin hasn't been this good for 20 yrs!!
I have just started using the intensive cream on both my 7 year old son who has very dry flaky skin and on myself as I am trying to reduce the number of chemicals I use both on my skin and in my home. I have to say that it is the first time I have used cream on him without him shouting out that it is itchy or burning. His skin feels much smoother and he is using it himself as he can see results, also a first. So far so good, and I would suggest that people who have 'normal' skin types also try this product as it is just far more effective than anything I have ever tried. Not just for dry skin! Thank You!
My 3 year old daughter has had eczema around her neck and on her hands from she was 5 weeks old. My Dermatologist recommended using elave body wash & shampoo and intensive cream to reduce her flare-ups. It has really worked, for the first time her skin is almost clear of redness.
I am so very impressed with the shampoo & conditioning treatment. On the first use, I knew I'd found something special. Every other shampoo stung my scalp so that washing my hair wash a painful experience. This was totally different. NO STINGING at all. By the third wash, I'd stopped scratching my head in between washes completely, and the tiny flakes had all disappeared. Friends have commented on the appearance of my hair, (I'm using your conditioning treatment too) and the dry skin on my face that had previously plagued me has completely cleared. I feel like I've discovered a miracle product, thank you so much.
I had suffered with severe skin irritations to my chest and upper shoulders for 14 years as a result of chemical burns. I tried practically over a hundred different creams only to result in additional burning and intense pain. Stumbling upon Elave has ACTUALLY changed my life; no more unsightly redness, pain, or dry itchy skin. I now can actually sleep because the body lotion instantly calms and totally clears my troublesome skin. Can't say enough about the products. Thank you so much.
I would have to say that this product worked like magic on my daughter's skin just after 24rs of using it. She has very dry skin condition and I had tried several products without results. Honestly Elave rocks!
I have 2 children and my first battled with eczema. When my second little guy was born I wanted to make sure that his skin was protected. I was particularly concerned about parabens and alcohol.
Elave is safe and everyone admires my baby’s skin. I wish I had found this range earlier.
I don't usually write to thank a company for their product but I have to say that your company and your product is the exception! I just would really like to thank your company so much.
My poor 6 month old baby son has very dry sore eczema skin. I have tried everything and all products have failed. My baby scratched and scratched his skin and then cried with the pain as the itch drove him crazy, especially with the heat that we have had recently. I had used hydrocortisone cream on him sparingly when an outbreak was severe however I hated using it as I know that it isn't great for a baby. My local pharmacist recommended your products and I bought the set hoping against hope that they might work. I was shocked at the speed at which they worked and the results are also shocking. My babies skin is so much better. It is amazing. Thanks so much for developing this product. I am now a loyal fan! Thanks to everyone envolved!
I bought this product a week ago and used it on my 19 month son, he had a very bad skin, he always cried and his skin kept on itching. I used aqueous cream from the doctor but it didn't do any good so when I saw the baby intensive cream I thought I'd try it. It was the best cream I have bought, I tried creams which cost £40 but they didn't do any good. My son's skin has got much better after I used this cream so I ordered some more. I would give 10*.
A friend introduced me to elave years ago and I am a great fan. I'm delighted that you've launched the baby range as most baby products are full of nasty chemicals that aren't necessary. I particularly love the baby bath.
I have been using Elave for the last 3 years. When my son was 3 months old he developed atopic dermatitis (commonly known as eczema) and I was devastated. I called my doctor and he prescribed E45 cream as a wash, I tried this and topical steroids for months, I tried other creams and lotions and potions and while waiting for a prescription to be filled in a chemist one day my eyes fell on Elave Baby Intensive Lotion. I picked it up having tried absolutely everything on the market and thought it wouldn't hurt to give it a go. To my utter shock, awe, amazement and delight the angry red patches on my then one year old son were slowly but surely turning lighter shades of pink, getting much much less scaly, reducing in size and eventually, with continued use, disappeared. I have used this cream consistently since then for three years. I am utterly delighted with it. It's cleared my sons eczema up completely. I dont even mean "Significantly but we are still battling with it" he actually has no longer got any eczema. I am so thrilled. Recently he broke out in a little patch along his orbital bone, I am dealing with this with Elave intensive lotion from the Junior range and am fully expecting the same results as I received from the baby range. Thank you for being committed to excellence in skincare Elave and thank you for clearing up my sons eczema.
Unlike so many other men's skincare products that dry out and irritate my skin, the elave men's range soothes the skin and doesn't make it itchy or inflamed. I use the elave men's shave gel and balm and I can absolutely recommend the men's range to anyone who wants reliable, safe skincare.
