Hello lovelies, Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.
This is Flower and Spice, its a very new brand to me, it was created by Karmen Novak in the Netherlands, but the products are made in Switzerland where they produce the highest quality skincare in the world. All ingredients are 100% natural and organic, no testing on animals and all Flower and Spice products are free from Parabens, Aluminium, Microbeads, SLS, Synthetic Silicons, no artificial colours or fragrance, and all products are dermatologically tested too. Today I’m sharing with you the Midnight Beauty Rich Revitalising Serum.
I have been using the Midnight Beauty Rich Revitalising Serum with Rose and Coriander for just 3 weeks, and I felt that I could now tell you my thoughts. Containing no less than 10 oils, the serum does feel more like an oil in texture rather than a serum, it’s very rich. I have to be really honest here, I do not like the fragrance, I think it could be the Coriander, which I also do not like to eat, but for a really gorgeous skincare product I can get over that because I can actually only smell it while I’m massaging it onto my face then pressing it in. When its on my face doing it’s work I can’t smell it. The packaging for this serum is a lovely dark brown glass bottle with the pump delivery system that I love, it’s rather elegant looking to grace any dressing table/vanity. So, after cleansing at night I applied 2 drops and massaged over my face and then pressed my hands over my skin to ensure all the gorgeous oils of Prickly Pear, Evening Primrose, Jojoba, Argan, Sacha Inchi, Apricot, Plum, Macadamia, Coriander and Rose were all set to work while I slept, and to help improve the look of fine lines and to regain moisture to my skin, and help me get back some radiance that’s been lost. The oils of Prickly Pear, Plum seeds, Macadamia, Evening Primrose, Apricot seed and Argan are all in there to help boost collagen. There is Vitamin E in the Sacha Inchi which helps to improve skin elasticity, the Coriander will soothe any inflammation helping the skin to feel more calm.
Usually when I use a serum it would be applied under a moisturiser, be it a day or night cream. But because this is so incredibly rich I felt I didn’t need to use a day cream or a night cream in my routine. The serum sinks in beautifully, doesn’t feel sticky on my skin and I even patted some under my eyes. Over the weeks of using this serum at night, my skin in the mornings looks rather fabulous, even if I do say so myself. My skin is glowing, it’s soft and nourished and feels hydrated. Even where I popped a little under my eyes I expected to be puffy, but no all I get is hydration. This is beautiful, luxurious, natural, organic night-time skincare!
Finally, I’ll just share with you what I thought of the two samples of skincare that I tried. I can’t give you a proper review, just a first impression of the Soothe and Repair Moisturiser and the Instant Glow Exfoliator. The moisturiser is really lovely, once again I had to ignore the fragrance of it, although it’s not as intense as the serum to be honest. For a dry skin, Flower and Spice recommend using the serum underneath, I have dry mature skin and I found on first impression the moisturiser was all I need, it’s a really lovely cream and plenty hydrating enough for me. Now, the Instant Glow Exfoliator does exactly what it says it is! After cleansing I applied the product to my damp skin and massaged over my face and lips for a minute or so, rinsed off with a cloth as I would any exfoliator and dried. This product is gorgeous, I loved using it, it’s fruit acids and bamboo buds exfoliate the skin in a natural way an organic way. After using it I was blown away with the instant glow it gave to my skin, it looked so fresh and felt very soft.
