If you've ever purchased one of the Elemis Today's Special Value (TSV) sets on QVC then you'll know what a bargain they are. This is my second, and I've found them a fantastic way of trying out some of the many products from across the range. The set includes three new global exclusives and is valued at over £125, but the TSV price was just under £40! The Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser is a limited edition, and for me is the star product of the set. I tried the original about a year ago, and although I liked it I wasn't smitten enough to repurchase it, but this version is a different story. Firstly it smells divine. Fragranced with neroli, bergamot, cedarwood and rosewood, it has the most exquisite botanical aroma that subtly lingers on the skin. I love the fragrance so much that after I've squeezed some onto the palms of my hands I just hold them over my nose and breath it in before cleansing my face. Secondly, it really does live up to its name by leaving my skin baby soft and radiant, to such an extent that I don't want to use it up too quickly in case I can't buy a replacement. I really hope Elemis make this version of the Pro-Radiance Cleanser a permanent fixture – I'm hooked! A 30ml pot of the award-winning Pro-Collagen Marine Cream is included in the set. I love the light texture of this anti-ageing moisturiser, it quickly sinks into the skin leaving a soft and glowing complexion. It's suitable to use day and night as it doesn't contain an SPF, and it can be used on the eye area, making it a very versatile product.
The Nourishing Shower Cream and Nourishing Body Cream share the same lovely comforting fragrance. The shower cream contains camellia, macadamia and jojoba oils to soften and hydrate the skin. As it's a full size bottle I'm sure it will easily see me through the winter. The rich body cream which contains concentrated milk protein, oat kernels, camellia, macadamia and jojoba oils is also perfect for the colder months, and is ideal for those with dry skin. As this is a travel size I'll probably keep this in my gym bag.
If, like me, you love the scent of rose then you'll adore the Jasmine and Rose Milk Bath, and Jasmine and Rose Hand and Nail Cream. The milk bath can be used as a hand or foot soak, which I really must try. Of course hands do tend to suffer over the winter - being exposed to cold weather can really dry the skin out. I find a lot of hand creams leave a greasy residue which can make gripping things tricky. I have round chrome door knobs in my house and greasy hand creams make it impossible to open doors! No such problem with this Elemis hand cream however, it's nourishing, hydrating and effortlessly absorbed, and to top it all the fragrance is beautiful. I find rose a very comforting aroma and slathering this on my hands is a wonderful little luxury.

Special Edition Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser 200ml
Pro-Collagen Marine Cream 30ml
Skin Nourishing Shower Cream 300ml
Skin Nourishing Body Cream 50ml
Jasmine and Rose Milk Bath 125ml
