May/June 2013 Specials

 ‘No gift to your mother can ever equal her gift to you: life’
– Anonymous

Greetings from the Elixir team. May is a wonderful time of year. The first autumn showers have quenched the thirsty South African soil and washed the air clean of summer’s heat and dust, the world turns green and lush, and it’s time to think about cocooning indoors in front of a glowing fire. It’s also time to honour all the mothers we know, whether it’s your own mother, your grandmother, your best friend who always has time for you even if she doesn’t make time to spoil herself, or even yourself…



This year we have decided to make Mother’s Day EXTRA special! We have repackaged your Elixir favourites – Tea Rose Liquid Hand Soap, Hand Massage Cream and Rich Body & Bath Milk – in ecofriendly 200ml reusable glass bottles with pump-action tops. They look especially beautiful in the bathroom, can be refilled (we now offer refill bottles*) and make a wonderful present, especially when packaged in our elegant gift bags. Or choose our traditional Mother’s May Rich Body & Bath Milk (in the gorgeous glass pump-action bottle) plus Exfoliating Salt Scrub combination.

Here’s a summary of these Mother’s May special offers: PRODUCT  SPECIAL Retail

Matric dances are around the corner and so we have decided to place our focus largely on teenage skin. These specials will encourage your teenagers to get into a healthy skincare routine – yes, the boys too!
At Elixir we try to get teenagers to realize that ‘less is more’. Many teenagers are too eager to try every promise they hear in the media, which often results in total confusion for their already hormonally challenged skins, while the main focus for teenagers should be to keep the skin clean and disinfected. Our simple-to-use Youth Kit will provide instant relief from breakouts!


YOUTH KIT 100ml Balancing Cleanser & Balancing Toner Combo & a 10ml Purifying Spot Treatment 
R150 (product value R200).


If you are already a convert to Elixir Purifying Spot Treatment, don’t miss the limited edition 50ml Purifying Spot Treatment special offer of R150.


As with everyone, Elixir too is experiencing a never-ending increase in the cost of raw materials – our imported raw materials have literally doubled in price. We are doing our best to keep price increases as reasonable as possible. We will only be increasing the prices as of 1 July 2013 so you have time to stock up at the old prices.

We can all breathe a sigh of relief – the good news is that we have managed to secure more Acacia Plant Active so we will be able to continue offering you the products from our collagen range. The bad news is that it took weeks of negotiation and has resulted in us having to wait for the Active to be shipped. We still have stock of Elixir Pro Collagen Repair Cream but are temporarily out of stock of Lift & Boost Décolleté Cream. We will keep you posted but expect our collagen range to be back in full production by the end of May.

Many of you will be pleased to know the harmonizing oil has been upgraded to a spritz-top bottle, making it even easier to apply with less wastage.

Warm wishes from the ELIXIR team
