This little bottle of wonder serum was bit of an impulsive buy (I was also feeling flush!), I was looking for something that would be a nice added extra in to my skin care routine for winter. The formula boasted to have the 24 hour nourishment of an oil while feeling light weight, with the added benefit of being anti aging too. So I thought why not give it a shot.

This unique formulation, combines an oil & serum in one product. Just a few shakes before use effortlessly blends the two phases of the formula together so you can get all the skin improving benefits of an oil in a texture as light & quick absorbing as a serum.
The oil phase: a blend of skin nourishing oils including moringa, jojoba & pomegranate oil to give an instant & intense hydrating boost to the skin.
The serum phase: is powered by an active anti-ageing blend including red rice stem cells to rejuvenate & firm the skin.
Wonder Oil works to reduce the appearance of fine lines & boost elasticity for a rejuvenated looking complexion. Provides 24 hour hydration, softening & smoothing
to promote healthier & plumper looking skin. Instantly absorbs into the skin for a fresh, non-greasy finish.
Wonder Oil is the perfect daytime partner to our bestselling Therapist’s Secret Facial Oil - the ultimate nourishing & indulgent night time treat for your skin.

Being an oil based serum, the oil sits at the top of the formula, and all you gotta do is give the bottle a good shake to combine the oil and serum together. The oil serum has an extremely silky texture and is a dream to apply. I started off using this both day and night but the formulation was far too much for me during the day, it would make my already oily skin even oilier, so I decided to stick with using it as a night only serum in place of my moisuriser. It is more target towards those with normal to dry skin.
It has a really peculiar scent that I can't quite put my finger on, its not unpleasant at all, smells like a sweet but I can't for the life of me think what one!
I honestly didn't notice any change in my skins over all look and feel, but I did enjoy applying it of a night time. It kept my skin hydrated through the night. Its something I wouldn't mind re-purchasing but its a little too expensive to consider keeping as a constant in my routine.

Hope you enjoyed this post!
