I was kindly gifted this by my mother as an out-of-the-blue gesture, and was delighted. It smelled all right, the pump was smoothly operating, and the face wash wasn't too drying.
Unfortunately, after a few days of using, my pores became even larger than before, and my skin became very visibly blotchy. There was also an annoying tickling sensation for about an hour after each application - which I succeeded, with restraint, to refrain from scratching.
To make sure I hadn't just rubbed too hard with my face cloth cloth previously, I gave the products a few days break (during which my skin returned to normal) before trying again. Unfortunately the same things happened.
I have never had these particular symptoms from a product (or otherwise) before, and it reminded me vaguely of rosacea (also alien to me). Even stranger, my skin did not react in its invariable allergic pattern - as has happened with other brands (more like eczema).
As it is sold for after-shave care as well as general moisturising purposes, we'd both expected it would be suitable for my sensitive skin.
Alas, the product needed to be returned and I too, needed to return to products friendlier to my skin. The real surprise is that the Elemis was twice the price of anything I normally use - I was expecting it would be at least as good, and hoping it would be twice as effective.
Sorry, not for me. I wish the rest of you better luck with this.

I bought this set a few months ago for my boyfriend and he literally cannot fault the products! His skin is now noticeably smoother and naturally radiant, which is great not only for him but me as well! Very happy with the purchase so have bought him another set for Christmas!

From the boyfriend:
My girlfriend made me get it as there's a bit of an age gap.
My face felt really clean and really soft will definitely get again.
the packaging of the mens elemis looks really nice, much nicer than the ladies!
