Skincare is super important to me, because youth is important to me. I get panicky whenever I realise I’m not a teenager anymore, whenever a child refers to me as ‘that lady’ and when I see those bags under my eyes just don’t seem to be shifting. It’s a cruel, cruel world. I just wanna go back in time, be a moody emo teen again and not worry about ‘getting on a bit’.
However, life happens whether I like it or not; so I better get with the program! With that being said, you could say I’m a little obsessed with skincare. Gimme all the serums, moisturisers, oils, face masks and promises of reversing time. GIMME.
This neutral looking liquid comes in a pretty bottle and all, and upon super close inspection; it has tiny glittery aspects to it (only if you look at it against the light). Is it a serum? The word serum doesn’t seem to appear anywhere on the bottle or packaging; but I’d say this was the closest description I could give you. So it’s obvious I had no idea what to expect.
The handy thing about the Aura Mirabilis Double Extract is that once you take the lid off and turn it upside down; it releases the perfect amount of serum. One ‘dose’ worth, enough to apply to my face and neck perfectly without lots left over – perfect! However, I must say now I immediately didn’t like the feeling of the residue on my hands, and had to wash them straight after. On my face however? PERFECT. It sunk in within a moment or two, and left my skin feeling super nourished and soft. I was so happy! I’d been a little apprehensive and reserved with this product upon first impression, but after 3 weeks of using it daily I can confirm I’m now a huge fan!
If you’re looking for a daily wear product that is kind to skin, and gives a natural radiance; then this is the one for you. Packed with natural ingredients, this is a great introduction to anti-ageing products for people in their late twenties, like me, who are getting a little scared.
You can grab a very generous bottle of 35ml (trust me this will last ages) for just £34 from Escentual if you want to take your first awesome step into going back in time – OR treating your mum/nan/whoever this Christmas.
HUGE THUMBS UP.
