Introducing Elise 30, West Sussex UK

I'm Elise Gill. Part Mauritian, part French, and I live in Sussex. My skincare started when I was around 10 years old. My acne started young and I went to the doctor to understand how to fix it. My mum and dad bought everything I needed and everything I was prescribed, but it all made my skin flare up and it got worse. My mum helped me to research what specific ingredients to look out for in skincare such as salicylic acid and tea tree. Then I started going to stores knowing what to look for.

I remained patient and tried to enjoy the journey as much as possible
This helped my skin massively, but it was still a journey and it was all a waiting game. My emotions played a huge part. Every time a product wouldn't work I'd get upset and, in turn, this would affect my skin and I'd be back to square one. So I remained patient and tried to enjoy the journey as much as possible, making DIY masks with my mum, researching ingredients, understanding the science side of products with my dad and, slowly, my skin started to get better!

Now I am maintaining my skincare and continuing to explore! I reached out to The INKEY List via their DMs and asked INKEY

Now I am maintaining my skincare and continuing to explore! I reached out to The INKEY List via their DMs and asked INKEY what products I could mix together. I was new to acids at the time and wanted to understand how to incorporate their cult Salicylic Acid Cleanser, Beta Hydroxy Acid and Turmeric Moisturiser with their newer, innovative acids and treatments.
