REVIEW: Elizabeth Grant Skin Care ~ Get Into Your Skin

I am so delighted to be able to include Elizabeth Grant Skin Care in my Holiday Glamour & 2010 Holiday Gift Giving Guide. Elizabeth Grant Skin Care offers an extensive selection of skin care and body products that will target a wide range of skin types and address specific skin care issues. Elizabeth Grant Skin Care is an exceptional luxurious yet affordable brand that offers effective skin care products that will not disappoint you. I was given the opportunity to try out two products from the BIOCOLLASIS COMPLEX collection by Elizabeth Grant. This is an Advanced Cellular Age Defense collection created for the woman who wishes to be proactive about aging gracefully. A complex of advanced Biocollasis combined with the purest of natural ingredients to help defend the skin against the visible signs of aging is what this collection is all about. It is inspired by nature and enhanced by science to keep the skin looking better with age. The two products I tried are magnificent & before I share my experiences with them, let me first introduce Elizabeth Grant Skin Care to you:

Adapted from the Elizabeth Grant Website}



Elizabeth Grant did not always have the flawless skin she has today. Damaged during the Second World War, her skin was a constant source of personal shame and embarrassment - to the point where she avoided going out in public and living her life fully.

All of that changed in 1948 when Elizabeth discovered a natural substance that was used to treat war wounds. She had it specially formulated with other ingredients and began applying it to her damaged skin. Gradually, but very noticeably, the transformation occurred. Within eight months, Elizabeth's skin had improved remarkably. She threw away the dark glasses and drooping hats that she wore whenever she went out in public...and started living again!

In her work as a makeup artist, one of her clients complimented her on her skin's fresh, healthy and youthful appearance. Flattered...and shocked that someone would actually comment on her skin...Elizabeth told her client about the miracle cream that she had created. The woman left with a sample, only to return 10 days later asking for more.

She too had discovered Elizabeth's moisturizing miracle. Her skin was starting to feel normal again and her symptoms - clogged pores and skin that looked tired and age-worn - were disappearing. Six weeks later she visited Elizabeth. Her skin was glowing.

In 1958 in London, England it was most unusual for women to run companies. Not taking any notice of this, Elizabeth declared her commitment to share her remarkable skin care secret with people everywhere. Elizabeth launched her own skin care treatment line to share the secret formulation she had created.

On the strength of her miracle blend, Torricelumn™, and her own determination and perseverance, Elizabeth evolved the company from a home-based business to a multi-million dollar global corporation. Formerly available by special order only, the Elizabeth Grant line of skin care and beauty products is now available at select retail locations in Canada, United States, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Germany, United Arab Emirates, South Africa, Australia, Japan and Poland.


The most gracious folks over at
Elizabeth Grant Skin Care generously sent me two fascinating products to review and so for the past 2 weeks I have been spoiled silly using the two amazingly wonderful products. I have had the opportunity to use hundreds of different skin care products and I have to say that Elizabeth Grant's products are some of the most divine, couture, high end products I have had the pleasure to use and honestly for the large amounts you receive and the results they provided me with, they are quite affordable. Using a little bit of the product goes a long way and with them less is more! You do not need to layer them on in order to reap the benefits, just a small amount morning and night will be enough to work their magic with your skin. Let me tell you about the two products I tested out for this review:

Total Regeneration Ultimate Cellular Concentrate 45mL
Price: $99


An extremely powerful serum created to win the fight against skin aging.

Ultimate Cellular Concentrate combines pure Torricelumn™, Elizabeth Grant’s exclusive, clinically tested, superior moisturizing anti aging compound with an intensive concentration of Plant Stem cells to help the delay the appearance of aging by protecting and repairing epidermal skin cells.

The skin is made up of millions of cells. In a young skin there is a natural and quick replenishment and repair of the skin. As we age the repair and replenishment rate diminishes resulting in skin aging – the skin loses its plumpness and moisture holding capabilities, lines appear and the skin starts to slacken.

Ultimate Cellular Concentrate helps to decrease the rate at which the surface skin cells deteriorate and at the same time, improves the rate of repair. This dual action helps to slow down the appearance of skin aging and helps to repair skin that has already aged.

The result –From the first application there is a visible smoothing of the skin. Within two weeks the skin starts its recovery and visibly looks younger.


Apply sparingly to face, neck and chest area before retiring at night. For more intensive results apply to clean skin morning and night


Stem Cell Technology is remarkable Stem Cells can turn into younger cells for any type or organ, including creating fresh new skin. As stem cells are very delicate it is essential that the delivery system does not counteract or spoil this cell repair process. What makes The Ultimate Cellular Concentrate exceptional is the natural Torricelumn™ -Amber delivery system.
Natural Amber is infused with Torricelumn™ to transport this concentration with a deep-down action into the epidermal layer. This delivery system is key to the efficacy of the Concentrate. The superior delivery system of Torricelumn™ is enhanced by Amber’s protective healing properties delivering fresh plant stem cells to the deep epidermal layers of the skin..

Ultimate Cellular Concentrate contains Plant Stem Cells from Uttwiler Sp├Ątlauber, the rare Swiss apple clinically tested to
• protect the longevity of epidermal skin stem cells prolonging the look of young, beautiful skin.
• delay the aging of essential epidermal skin cells building resistance to skin aging
• combat the look of chronological aging keeping the look of young skin for longer.

Contains natural resin from the Baobab Tree to boost skin moisturization and support the repair action of the Concentrate. The Baobab lives in arid savannah regions of sub-Saharan Africa. As this tree can reach an age of 5,000 - 6,000 years, it is called the African "Tree of Life". To survive dry seasons the Baobab tree has become an expert in water conservation. Its massive trunk, up to 10 meters in diameter, is a water reservoir and its leaves contain the resin that binds water tenaciously making this a superb skin hydrator.

Contains a blend of Ceramides and Sodium Hyaluronate to maximize the function of the delivery system, enhance the water holding properties of the skin and plump and smooth the appearance of the skin - Immediately, on application the skin appears smoother.

MY THOUGHTS: I typically am not real big on serum's. Basically most of the serum's I have used in the past have left a rather sticky feeling to my skin. So I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy this step of the BIOCOLLASIS COMPLEX regimen. But I was pleasantly surprised the first time I sparingly applied this to my skin. As I said, you only need a teeny tiny but, as a little goes such a long way. The consistency of this product is a light, thin, lotion-like feeling, more runny than most serum's that I have tried {which is a good thing}. It spreads like silk over my skin and my skin obviously loved it because it drank it right up. It immediately absorbed right into my skin and left no discernible residue, which I loved!

I experienced absolutely no adverse reactions to any of the ingredients in this product. It did not irritate nor leave my skin with any noticeable redness or dryness. The scent was a bit surprising, it has a very distinct scent, not a sweet fragrance, but rather a natural sort of earthy scent that left me feeling very confident that the ingredients contained in this product were "good" for my skin in a natural, botanical sense.

After using this product for 2 weeks I have clearly noticed a distinct difference in the texture of my skin. It appears much more even in tone and clarity, and it does not appear as dull and dry in appearance. My skin just had that lack luster look to it, and I had noticed some new fine and lines and wrinkles creeping up around my eyes and lips and they appear much less severe to me in just 2 short weeks. My skin looks revived and rejuvenated to me. A more dewy texture to it and I notice a renewed glow to the appearance that was not apparent prior to using this product. I am sure that using this serum in conjunction with the second product I was sent made a huge difference as they were created to work in harmony together. So let's move on to that second product I used:

The second product I was sent to review is:

Advanced Cellular Age Defense Day Cream - 50 mL
Price: $99


A lightweight, gentle, nutrient-rich moisturizer. Intensive moisturizing properties deeply hydrate all day long, keeping the skin looking and feeling smooth and supple.
Enriched with a luxurious saturation of natural peptides, proteins and precious extracts from nature to improve the skin's cellular matrix promoting a flawless appearance.

Pat 1 – 3 spatula scoops gently all over face and neck every morning after cleansing and applying Biocollasis™ Complex Day Serum. Avoid the eye area.

• Torricelumn™ – Elizabeth Grant's superior moisturizing compound.
• Glycine Soya – rich in glycol proteins, it helps to reinforce skin tone and elasticity.
• Ceramides – help to reinforce the skin's natural protective barrier, improve long-term hydration and protect the skin from external influences.
• Sephora Extract and Kiwi Fruit Water – help to reduce skin pigmentation and even out skin tone.

Clinical studies:
• 88% skin felt firmer
• 82% improved elasticity
• 91% wrinkle reduction

MY THOUGHTS: Wow, as first impressions go, it was 5 Stars, First Class right from the get-go! This product comes housed in the most glamorous couture jar with an elegant and fancy Elizabeth Grant Logo lid! It now has a special prominent spot on my vanity and everyday when I grab the product to use, it makes me smile and feel special! Bravo to Elizabeth Grant for realizing how even the tiniest of details can make a whole world of difference to us! I adore this stunning jar, but did the product live up to its supreme appearance? You bet it did!

Elizabeth Grant makes using this product a no brainer. She provides you with the spatula so you can quickly, easily and accurately measure just how much product you need to use and you can apply it to your face with expertise. The consistency of this cream was light and silky smooth and you can actually feel the high level of hydration that it contains. Again, a little bit of ultra luxurious cream goes a long way, and I just love the way it felt like a dream gliding over my skin as I applied it and I watched in amazement as my skin just drank it up! I applied this product a few minutes after I applied the serum so I could feel how the dynamic duo was already working to immediately infuse my skin with moisture and nutrients that instantly improved the appearance of my dull dry skin. This product is perfectionism at its finest, an incredible face cream that won't be too heavy on your skin, and won't make you feel like you have too much product on your skin. Once my skin absorbed this product it was left with a smooth, dewy, healthy appearance, a glow I had not seen in a long time on myself.

I have been using this product faithfully in unison with the serum and in just 2 weeks my skin just glows! It is healthier and more vibrant than I could have imagined it would look in such a short time, and with such little effort on my part. In literally the 2 minutes that it takes me to apply these two products, it is just short of a miracle in the transformation it has given my skin. I should note I am also using this moisturizer at night time as well. It seems to contain just the right amount of moisture that my face needs, and my skin seems to be reacting so nicely to it, that I want to use it both during the day and at night. It is such a fine product that I want to make sure my skin is adequately nourished and this product is delightfully the perfect match for my skin care needs.
