The Little Alchemist: Review and Giveaway

Do you use a skin serum? If not, you must start using one. It is a surefast, easy way to hydrate your skin and give it a lovely healthy glow. I have had the pleasure of reviewing a couple through this blog and my new favourite is the Ultra C Radiance Serum by The Little Alchemist.
This serum is recommended as a treatment product which you apply after cleansing. As a stand alone product, it is deeply hydrating and leaves skin feeling incredibly smooth and radiant. But since I've had a serious case of dehydration with all this winter dryness and pregnancy hormones, stress, and sleepless nights, I decided I needed some serious help. In lieu of plastic surgery and harsh chemical peels, I opted instead to combine the goodness of the Ultra C Radiance Serum with The Little Alchemist's Anti Aging Defense Complex as a nightly ritual.

And boy, oh boy. They are a powerful anti-aging/ skin-brightening/ skin-softening and wrinkle-smoothing duo. A little bit goes a long way and the products do not leave the skin feeling oily. What the skin does feel is super duper soft and hydrated. I can quite easily imagine the natural ingredients doing their magic while I sleep at night. It is such bliss to take my time to massage the products on at the end of each day as a way to wind down.

Giveaway time! The Little Alchemist is giving two lucky readers the chance to win both products that I have reviewed in this post, namely the Ultra C Radiance Serum and Anti Aging Defense Complex (Total value: AUD$155.00)

For your chance to win, simply follow me on Facebook or Google Friend Connect or BlogLovin, then tell me as a comment on this post, why you would like to try The Little Alchemist.  You get an extra entry if you like The Little Alchemist's Facebook page, just let me know in your comment if you have done so.

Giveaway ends on Monday 29th July, 5pm EST and is open to Australian readers only. Good luck!

Update: And the winners are Loz and and Fee...congrats! And thanks everyone for playing x

uh oh, I don't yet use a serum and this post makes me realize that I should be! Greta giveaway!

Beauty Box said...

Sounds like a great serum! The packaging is very lovely too. Wish I'd the chance to try this...Will look out for this brand the next time I'm in Sydney. I actually nabbed a bottle of the A'Kin pomegranate serum you mentioned in a previous post. It sounded so good! And it was the last one left on the shelf at the natural food shop near my MIL's place - what luck! Can't wait to break it out and try it.

My Garden Diaries said...

I could always use something like this!!! It could be the lack of sleep or the fact that I have had 3 beans in 4 years...but whatever the reason my skin needs a little more help! Sounds like a wonderful product!! Cheers lady!!

I'm sitting at home recovering from spinal surgery and because it's winter ( read COLD!) I stuck in a heated room-ergo my skin is starting to dry out enough to be used as a fossil exhibit at the museum! :)

I'm already following you and will do so even if my poor dessicated skin doesn't win the serum of wonder! :)

I am currently using a serum from Chanel but an additional one wouldn't do any harm too. I would try any serum that can work just as good rather than putting myself under the knife.

I'm also following you on Facebook, Bloglovin and GFC. Thanks for the giveaway and you definitely did a great job with the review =)

Loz said...

I follow you on all 3 :) I'd like to try The Little Alchemist for all the reasons you listed.. the hydration and softness, and tackling those wrinkles.. I'm in! I also enjoy my nightly routine {kids are already in bed so it's nice and quiet} to unwind and take a little bit of time for myself.

maria said...

you have such amazing giveaways, lady!!
i went into aesop to stock up on some skin care yesterday (a bit crazy that I've now come across this skin care giveaway!)...anyway, my point was I was looking for something to add to my skin care routine. I use an oil (moisturiser) and the guy there was talking to me about the serums. I'm not 100% sure about them and am so keen to try. I have their samples but i like the sound of these goodies. it's the middle of winter here..any good-ness my skin can get would be amazing!

Michelle said...

Hi Trishie thanks for another great giveaway I am a follower already :)
As much as I hate to admit it now Im in my 30s my skin needs more care and attention and in desperate need of the Anti Aging Defense Complex so I can slather it on at night time and let it work its magic for me to keep me looking youthful!

burntfeather said...

Ahh I don't use anything, my skin needs help!!

I follow you ohn GFC and facebook...Following Little Alchemist on facebook also.

I would very much love to try these products. To be honest its not a brand I have heard of before so its 100% new to me. I know the benefits of Vitamin C on the skin though as i use some each morning and I praise it for keeping my skin looking as wrinkle free as it is. I am always excited to explore new and exciting products.

(I couldn't see that my entry from yesterday had gone through. Apologies if this is the 2nd time)

The Little Alchemist prize - what a treat
For a forty something mum whose trying hard to beat
The tyranny of age, of harsh sunshine.
My skin so fair, losing condition before it's time.

To gain more confidence, feel renewed,
This serum may just begin to soothe
And moisturise deep down where it really does some good.
Being thoroughly grateful to win, I really would.

You can never forget skin serum! My Mother uses it religiously every night and many others I know, but some fail to use it. I think it's good to start now.

Talisa Tossell said...

This looks AMAZING! I want to be able to grab through the computer and grab the products!

I find that when I use facial skin products over night, that they work better than in the morning. These products would be great for that.
