Whatever happened to ageing gracefully? It got old...

Please excuse the Sex and The City quote for the title of this blog, I've decided to start from the very beginning of my box set (again) to cure man-less boredom in the evening!

I absolutely had to write this post to tell you all about another new discovery of mine. One of my mums friends introduced me to this a while ago and, while it did take me a couple of months to bite the bullet and splash out on the £32 price tag, I decided I had to try it. 

It's an Aloe Nourishing Serum, with extracts of white tea to preserve and replenish skin. Now with such a hefty price tag (at least to me anyway) I haven't been using it morning and night every day. So far I've had it nearly two weeks, and been applying it to my neck and chest to try and even out my skin there where my horrible rash has been from my allergic reaction to a fake tan (less said about that the better!) I can honestly say it's made a huge difference, my skin is so soft, the rash has gone and even though there's still a bit of redness left, I hope that using this for a bit longer will eventually get rid of that. I've also used it on my face every other night and it makes my skin feel incredible in the morning. I wouldn't use it in the morning as I have quite oily skin and it is quite heavy. 

I'd say in conclusion, the actual product is amazing, the price tag is a little bit off putting initially but a little bit goes a very long way and I think it will last me for ages. I'd never pick this up if I saw it on the shelf, mainly because (cue shallow moment) the packaging doesn't really do anything for me, but who cares when we're talking about a miracle in a bottle!! 

You can take a look at it here, and they have loads of other products so take a look around. 

Do any of you use a serum? Do you use it as well as a moisturiser?



  1. Sounds pretty good, I've been really into investing in good skin care products lately x

  2. Lovely review. I use lush's face serum, it's pretty good. x hivenn
