As we age, we need more dynamic products with active ingredients. I discovered this after having my skin tested on a Visia machine and found that using purely organic products wasn’t quite enough. I then got fantastic results by switching to dynamic products but they were expensive. I set out to find an affordable version and discovered Garden of Wisdom. It’s been like a dream come true.
With no nonsense packaging this exceptional range is unbelievably well priced. Ranging from £10 to £20, they have all the active ingredients you could possibly need. And you get real results.
Because the products are so incredibly affordable (most of them being in the £10 range) the margin of profit is very low and I was therefore unable to negotiate a discount. However P&P is free for orders over £25.
There are so many goodies in the range and by no means do you need them all. Choose which issues you want to deal and go for those. They have products for everything from pigmentation to inflamed skin to acne and ageing skin. The products are very light and are designed to be worn layered on top of each other. You can layer up to about 3 of them always starting with an acid or serum first and an oil on top.
Free P&P for orders over £25.
RetiStar Retinol Serum
Retinols have the power to transform ageing skin by increasing cell turnover. However they can be difficult to tolerate. This has always been an issue for me. This one by GOW is incredibly gentle (yet still effective) and I was able to use it with no problems.
Start by using twice a week and build up slowly if you have never used a retinol before. They also have a slightly stronger retinol.
Anti-Ageing Multi Peptide Serum
When it comes to ageing skin, peptides are key. This serum enhances collagen synthesis and even reduces muscle movement leaving the skin smoother and more youthful looking. This an amazing serum which gets real results.
Perfect for daytime.
100% Pure Prickly Seed Oil
Prickly Seed Oil is one of the most anti-ageing oils in the world due to it’s vast amounts of vitamin E and anti-oxidants. I love a facial oil as they feel so nourishing and are great to use overnight. It can be layered over other night time products. It’s usually incredibly expensive but they have managed to keep it at a super reasonable price.
Eye Contour Serum
This is a very light eye serum that I use day and night and absolutely love. It’s filled with peptides to sort out those fine lines around the eyes and also tackles bags and dark circles. This has got a very big thumbs up from my Ageless followers.
