Best skincare products I have ever used. I have very dry, acne prone skin and the botanical blue eye gel, hydrating rose facial elixir, mango facial cream and twilight facial oil have improved my skin significantly.

Elle Johnson skincare has it all. Instagram-ready bottle? Yup. Light, fresh cleanser made with awesome ingredients? Definitely. A moisturizer that is just heavy enough to cover me no matter the season? Most Definitely.

Being 55 I noticed my skin doing some strange things. I love the way this product makes my skin feel and the smell is nice. the night time oil is the best.

These products are everything! I previously ordered my products from another company beginning with an M and K 😉 And I never got the results that I’m getting now. Results I can see which means you took the time to to put a lot of thought and love in these products and thats a huge plus! The twilight facial oil is life! Heck everything is thank you! Please please don’t change anything

I recently purchased the mini samples, body oil, toner and full size of the rose serum at the beginning of February. The products are of exceptional quality. My skin feels so soft, plumped and moisturized. I love the toner, rose serum and mango creme. The twilight oil is great too and doesn’t leave my skin feeling oily. I’m excited to support a black female owned company with products that are actually effective.
Thank you.

Before buying the clear 3 package I was dealing with dry and flaky skin. The cleanser and moisturizer really cleared that up and I love it. I’m new to skincare so now I’m checking out the serum and oil for my next purchase

I was so excited to find these products. Love supporting a Black owned brand! I bought the minis set for Normal/ Dry Skin (LOVE that the brand offers minis to try) and I think it would be amazing for people who are normal leaning dry or truly combination. Not so much for dry skin all over the face. The face masks though- HOLY GRAIL. The Fruit Facial Antioxidant Masque is wild. Sometimes I wake up with odd texture on my forehead and this totally clears it up. Will be buying this and the night oil again for sure!

I was initially searching around for this one mango facial moisturizer from the body shop when I came across Elle Johnson’s. There were so many good reviews from just the moisturizer alone I had to try. So I ordered and leme tell y’all, I’m addicted!!!! This stuff is the truth. And I live in Denver so in the winter it’s DRY dry here. I use the moisturizer every single day!! Thank you Elle Johnson, I can’t wait to try the rest of your products!

I initially purchased the Mini set just to see how it would work on my skin and it did an amazing job! It moisturized my skin very well and made me glow. I've been using a national brand for the past 9 months and I was hesitant to try anything new, but having the minis as an option made me give it a shot. After the minis ran out I was ready to purchase the full sized products. I was super hesitant because of the price compared to what I was paying with the national brand I was using. The price was 2 to 3 times more, but I realized that small businesses have to charge more. Especially if the product actually works. I purchased the Chamomile Facial Wash 15ml, Twilight Facial Oil 30ml (this stuff works wonders for me!), Botanical Blue Gel Cream 30ml & the Hydrating Rosewater Cream 60ml. With the purchase I received the Hydrating Rose Facial Elxir for free.

One thing I can say about all of these products is LESS IS MORE! I estimate that what I've purchased will last me for 2-3 months using it twice per day. This 100% makes the price worth it. Especially since my skin is glowing now!

I purchased the chamomile face wash a few months ago and absolutely love it. I have sensitive, combination skin and it's a very gentle cleanser that makes my face feel clean without drying it out. The smell is nice as well! I also want to give a shout out to the company in general. I had only ordered the small size a few months ago and recently ordered the larger size, knowing that I love it and want to continue using it. For the first time ever in my current apartment, someone stole my package after it was delivered. I contacted Elle Johnson support and they sent me a new one for free. Some people may argue that is what should be done, which I don't disagree, but there was no hesitation on their end and the support person was very understanding. I really feel like they care a lot for their customers and I appreciate their quality service!

As someone with combination skin, I was hesitant in finding another moisturizer that would continue drying my skin... well not anymore, as the Mango Facial Cream has been largely successful in keeping my skin hydrated all day! I am thankful for the personalized note from Elle Johnson, as well, that brightened my day. Cannot wait to continue purchasing more of the creams!

Awesome products. I started with this bundle because I was looking for a cleanser that would soften, add tightness and bring back the life to my skin and it works. Also, the smell is delightful. It’s only been about two weeks or so and I’m loving it. Will be purchasing again.

I purchased the sugar rush facial polish a few months back, and I love it! I have oily
but sensitive skin, so it's been hard to find an exfoliant that doesn't strip. This one does the trick! The beads are very fine, and my skin feels smooth and moisturized afterwards. I highly recommend this product!

I really love my twilight oil it is the best thing that I have added to my nighttime routine to really seal all my serums in. My face is so bright and soft in the morning and I know it's because I added this !

The only reason this isnt receiving a 5/5 is because while its exceptional for oily skin and smells freaking delicious, it is not helping me with managing breakouts. It definitely cleans out my skin but sadly, i was hoping it stops the breakouts. I would definitely replenish my supply but this time, i'll be pairing it with clindamycin which is a bit tougher on acne. Overall, freaking beautiful product and i recommend it to all

I love the chamomile face wash, it’s really gentle but also great for oily skin. The deep cream is awesome at night, I wake up with soft skin and it smells great! I also have the blue gel cream which is perfect for the day, leaves my skin hydrated all day without making me look too shiny. I love these products!

I love my botanical cleansing lotion. My partner noticed the change in my skin straight away, commenting on it 3 days in a row. The scent is like nice like jasmine, but could be strong if you're used to mildly scented products. It goes away after a few seconds, but now I look forward to it.

As a male I’m always looking for great products for my skin. I added the pineapple pretty mask to my regimen and it’s perfect. I could tell a difference instantly. My skin was softer and had a luster to my complexion. I was like, “Yes, I love this.” I’m definitely spreading the news and must try some of the other products.

I purchased the Deep Cream and Sugar Scrub bundle and the jade roller as my first intro to ELLE. It was mid-pandemic and my tried and true cream from fellow natural line Eminence had run its course weeks ago and I felt it the perfect opportunity to start from scratch and start anew routine. And Fam... ELLLLLE J is where it’s AT! Finding her brand was a miracle. After having learned 8 years or so ago that shifting to an anti-inflammatory diet and using products I could practically eat was the secret for healing my skin and my gut I’ve never looked back. And have learned my skin LOVES thick and rich creams. All three products have elevated my life and have me feeling taken care of in a deep way. Thank you, Elle.

I’ve decided to try this on my Teenage daughters acne and by far the best product out there it’s perfect and doesn’t cause irritation and mostly it’s not greased feeling. We use the Clear 3 bundle for combination skin and the twilight oil at night.

Although initially, I ordered for the wrong skin type, I LOVE the products. The Twilight Facial Oil and the Pineapple Enzyme Mask smell absolutely amazing! The sugar scrub both feels good and leaves my skin smooth. Packaging has a luxury appeal, even the minis. I am waiting for my second order; hoping it arrives before my minis run out. Looking forward to the long term results!

I love these products!!!! I have dry skin & I started off with the Magic mini dry skin kit, the sugar rush polish & the pineapple pretty mask and I absolutely love love the way my skin feels. The cleansing lotion is very gentle & yet I can tell that my skin is cleaned well. The sugar rush polish smells sooo good, it has a light fresh scent, reminds of baby powder! And that twilight oil ... so luxurious and moisturizing! My absolute fav product is the pineapple pretty mask! This is a must have & a new staple in my beauty fridge. It smells like a Hawaiian vacation & my skin literally glowed right after I rinsed it. I’m so glad I’ve found a new skincare line that I LOVE! ❤️

I absolutely love this brand! I bought the following items: chamomille face wash, toner, Jojoba moisturizer, twilight facial oil, cleansing pad, hydrating rose elixir, and blue gel cream. I absolutely love all the products. They keep my skin glowing, hydrated and clear! I must admit I didn’t expect my face to be so clear using only three products daily (well I change the moisturizer/oil for day and night). I’m already about to make a purchase so I don’t run out! I highly recommend! And Elle definitely showed appreciation in the box! Supporter/customer forever.

The mini set was an amazing value! I’ve loved trying all the products. The cleanser is so gentle yet effective. My absolute favorite was the twilight oil. I loved the scent and the texture it left on my skin. All the products are very floral scented, so just an FYI if you are scent sensitive.

My skin regimen is very important to me and I wanted to find a black owned line that would be comparable if not better than what I have been using for years. I think I may have found it! The product is very nice, the packaging is beautiful! My chief complaints are: (1) All of the pumps were broken on my products and (2) the twilight serum has the worst smell! I had to wash it off before I could even see how different my skin would feel the next morning. Other than that, congrats on the line and I'm sure I will continue to support your products because I do like them, just not the twilight serum!

Love the chamomile face wash and jojoba moisturizer! The whole collection is awesome . I like that this collection is lightly scented and helps with my oily skin . Due to being pregnant and being sensitive to everything you system is a perfect match for all my hormonal problems. Lol The only issue I had with my mini’s is the pump didn’t work .The eye droppers are perfect though .

It’s always difficult to find facial products because my skin is extremely sensitive. Most products tend to leave my skin looking dry and flaky. I absolutely love the Hydrating Rose Facial Elixir and Twilight Facial Oil. They leave my skin glowing and silky smooth.

So glad I found your product! I was previously using a system where my face would have a dry ashy look on my cheeks after using the serum as well as the moisturizer; but my nose (t-syndrome) would be shiny. I could never get the balanced effect it was supposed to have. With your products I saw an immediate difference. The chamomile facial wash is heavenly! My face feels nourished and smooth even before the toner and moisturizer. There's no tight feeling either. I really like how my face looks and feels after using the complete system morning and night. Thank you!!
