Wishtrend recently introduced a new, exclusive brand - ELMT (pronounced as “element”) to their lineup. I was lucky enough to receive two of their products for testing before the brand even launched.
Today’s review is for ELMT Skin Illuminating Solution. Even though I have had this longer than most people, I am still actively using the product and looking forward to being able to discuss long term results in the future. For now, I can share first impressions and general thoughts. The Illuminating Solution can only be ordered on Wishtrend (use my code LUCY15 for extra savings). You can see the bottle in this reel.
ELMT Skin Illuminating Solution promises glowing, illuminated skin.
Niacinamide (10%) - can help with pigmentation, appearance of pores, and brighten the skin
Grape and pomegranate extracts (51.91%) - rich in antioxidants, boost the effects of niacinamide
How to use:
Apply after cleansing (use palms or cotton pads)
Can be layered with vitamin C products for an enhanced brightening effect
The clear, colorless and odorless liquid is slightly thicker than water and has a pleasant “slip” when applied. It is vegan and cruelty free. The bottle is glass and I find it very aesthetically pleasing.
I have combination skin that’s very fair and prone to pigmentation / freckles. Pores aren’t too bad, but could always look smaller. There’s no such thing as pores that are too small for me.
ELMT Skin Illuminating Solution has been a regular part of my evening routine for several weeks. I did not jump in with a daily application, however, because sometimes higher niacinamide percentages can cause irritation. I haven’t had any issues, so I think daily use is OK now. It’s always a good practice to start slow and patch test, especially if you have sensitive skin.
My skin is doing well with this product. There’s no stickiness or heaviness, which I appreciate. I like the slip and texture. The bottle design deserves a special mention - I love the green glass and the interesting shape. I do find myself wishing for more differentiated labels (or bottle colors?). Since I have two different ELMT solutions, I would have liked to be able to tell them apart at a glance without reading the actual labels.
My pores look clear and tight. I think I see some brightening, but again - skincare like this takes weeks of consistent use to truly work (watch out for reviewers who find a holy grail every other day). I hope this helps fade some of my freckles and prevent new ones as well.
I have high hopes for this product. As usual, Wishtrend doesn’t disappoint.
