Garden of Wisdom Vitamin C 23% Serum & Ferulic Acid

Not a very catchy title but the serum itself is wonderful, as is the whole Garden of Wisdom brand, but more on them another time. This Vitamin C is the strongest you will find, is combined with ferulic acid which will improve it's stability and is the real deal for those wanting help with skin tone, antioxidant benefits and pigmentation.

You can read all about Vitamin C here and Ferulic Acid here - I'd don't want to repeat myself too much but there are very few product featuring either of these ingredients that has really impressed me and this has.

Behind the Blog: 25 Random Facts About Me

It's been a bit quiet on here recently. There have been holidays (Provence, amazing), illnesses (me, gut related, very dull), school starting (Ned Year 1), nursery starting (Jack in baby room) and Jim has moved into pre-school. So I thought I would ease myself back into the swing of it by telling you 25 totally random facts about me. If I can think of 25.

Azelaic Acid

One ingredient that even I only came to hear about over the past year is Azelaic Acid but it's already become one of my most recommended products and incredibly popular in my Facebook group.

What is it?
It is a gentle exfoliating acid that you leave on the skin to unclog pores and improve skin tone and texture. The thing that drew it to me was it can improve skin sensitivity which very few ingredients do successfully. It is also an antioxidant and you know how I feel about those (if you don't you can read how I feel about them here).

Invisalign - The First Four Weeks

So getting ready for your Invisalign is a little bit of a faff. Lots of those horrible teeth casts to be done and some rather unattractive photographs. These go off to be put in the computer (along with some hilarious x-rays if, like me, you refuse to remove all your piercings) and then you go back to have a look at what can be done and find out how long you will need to wear the trays for - and therefore how many trays you will be getting. In my case it will be 45 weeks (this is the aim - it could be that we need to readjust slightly after the 45 weeks) so 45 trays.

Zoeva Brushes

I'm late to the party on these. Zoeva have been around a while and I have deliberately completely ignored them. Do you know why? Well firstly because when everyone else raves about something I go in the other direction (not always a great idea), and secondly because I assumed they were in some way related to Zoella. I don't have anything against her but I just don't think her products would be my jam.

I was wrong. I got to have a fondle of some Zoeva brushes in a friends kit and they are really nice. So nice that I immediately ordered some when I got home and will probably order more when I need them.

They are a company deeply committed to charity - especially helping women who have suffered domestic violence. They are a cruelty-free brand though they do use goat hair which is combed or shaved at no harm to the animal - for some this may be a bit of a grey area.
