REVIEW: Garden if Wisdom Vitamin C 23% Serum + Ferulic Acid by @victoriahealth


After the swift departure of Deciem from Victoria Health (I seriously need the tea) we were introduced to Garden of Wisdom in VH's iconic monthly newsletter, GOW is notorious for their clean, straightforward skin care & Shabir helped to curate & formulate a line of products in partnership between the two companies exclusively for Victoria Health. My first product choice had to be the Vitamin C 23% + Ferulic Acid serum as I assumed it was a much more affordable version of the Skincuticles C E Ferulic which is £135 a bottle compared to £10 for the GOW.

Claims: High strength pure L-ascorbic acid to brighten & even out skin tone whilst Ferulic acid helps protect skin against free radical damage.

Price: £10.00 for 30ml

Suitable for: Normal, Oily & Dry skin, active acne and extremely sensitive skins should avoid.

Thoughts: I have been using this serum for around six weeks & so far the results have knocked my socks off, I have areas or should I say had areas of pigmentation on top of my cheekbones & also down the centre of my forehead and so far this serum has obliterated the pigmentation on my cheekbone area and significantly faded the forehead area. I am impressed, I think the formula has everything to do with it (duh) because it was so effortless to fit into my routine, I have struggled with consistant Vitamin C useage because I didn't like the formula of the products I tried, they were either gritty, housed in an oil or just useless. This serum is smooth, lightweight & absorbs instantly, I use it in the evening & it sits really well on top of my hydrating essence/serums & under my oils. It's not without it's faults, i'm not a fan of the packaging, the pump shoots product out like a gun (I think they've repacked since I purchased) & I’m left with orange stained palms if I don't wash my hands at the end of my routine but for a £10 serum those are none issues as the product is effective and costs so little. I highly recommend if you have areas of pigmentation you want to fade or needing an antioxidant. #blogpost #skincare #vitaminc #bblogger
