I LOVE this serum. Since I started trialling it 10 days ago, I can’t bring myself to stop ….seriously.

It’s like it’s been custom made for my skin: as soon as I put it on, it sinks in and my skin feels moist and supple AND there’s a radiant gleam as well. …truth be told on a couple of occasions I’ve even forgotten to use my moisturiser afterwards! I’m told that I have really good skin (thanks mom) but with this serum I think I have great skin! Of course great skin comes at a cost, for some a great cost….£200 to be precise! Okay, you can exhale now.

Now of course we all have our particular likes and dislikes with products, as with everything…I mean I struggle to understand how anyone can say that they don’t like blue cheese …but I won’t start talking about food. This is wonderful and hard to fault.

Now to the science: this is an anti-aging serum so it contains many of the usual suspects like vitamin c, hyaluronic acid, as well as some more unexpected ingredients such as Själ’s proprietary gemstone blend containing amethyst, ruby, sapphire, diamond and tourmaline. I love the fact that Sjal harness the power of gemstones to bring their skincare products to life, as I believe in the power of crystals; while you may not be a believer the claim is that the gemstones “resonates at a cellular level, allowing for optimized cellular energy and metabolism, whilst at the same time helping to protect the skin from radiation and electromagnetic frequencies”. Bio-regeneratif-Serum-Malachite-High-Res-237x300

According to sjal this serum: regenerates tissue, improves elasticity and reduces fine lines and wrinkles, stimulates collagen synthesis, micro circulation, clarity and cellular energy rebalance, hydration, protection and soothing (hyaluronic acid.

Overall it is an investment product, but now that I’m using it I’m wondering how I’m going to afford my new habit.
