All-New Non-Oily Empress Elixir Serum

Welcome to my All-NEW Empress Elixir – reformulated, reimagined, redesigned! A fresh new non-oily Empress especially created to be silky on your skin and sink in rapidly. Preserves hydration (think petal-soft and dewy), reduces lines, irritation and redness, and resets microflora to restore damaged skin. A youthening antioxidant for the delicate skin of your face.

All-new Empress is a breakthrough among my unique products. Why? Because, just as our skin changes with the seasons, I will transition the recipe for Empress to tune its qualities to those seasonal needs, curating different phytonutrients, minerals, and gorgeous hydrosols and emollients to keep your skin plumped and protected.

Each bottle will be like owning an original artwork, with its own individual palette of ingredients, available by pre-order only. As the creatrix, I am going to make them and ship them immediately. These will be the freshest serums you have ever experienced – literally made, bottled and shipped within 24 hours. You would only get them fresher if you camped on my doorstep the day I make them.

Pre-Order yours today and experience the difference. Exquisite luxury for your face – because you deserve it!

What’s in Empress for Spring 2023?

Porcelain Flower, Saffron, Sandalwood, Gota Kola and Wendy’s specially-formulated Dewlock!

As we age, our microflora destabilise, leading to drying skin that becomes red, itchy and sensitive.

Scientists have discovered that nectar from Porcelain Flowers contains rare yeasts that are able to reset damaged microbiota.

Every population group has its own microbial signature. But Porcelain Flower has an amazing affinity for mature Caucasian skin.

The Metschnikowia reukaufii, nectar in it rebalances the microbiome of mature skin, strengthening barrier function to improve complexion.

When you’re over 40, this should be part of your skincare programme.

I’ve added an exclusive Glow Studio extract of Saffron for its protective power against UV radiation, supplied by the powerful anti-aging antioxidants crocin and safranal. These extracts calm skin redness and pain. Saffron speeds wound healing by promoting cell multiplication and reduces hyperpigmentation – so lightens and brightens those dreaded age spots.

Dewlock – my exclusive formulation that promotes the delivery of active ingredients into the skin, while supporting the natural lipid structures. It nourishes, moisturizes and soothes so that your skin feels dewy soft, plump and youthful.

Gota Kola – Indian herb of immortality and so soothing to inflammation; it promotes collagen synthesis and was included in my original Empress Elixir formula. I have made a new form of extract this time, to be non-oily – but equally powerful!

Sandalwood hydrosol is specifically used for mature skins. This one is made by me here in my Devon Studio with real sandalwood bark from India that I distill in my copper still.

Empress Elixir was named for the extraordinary 132.5-carat Golden Empress Diamond. Prior to cutting the raw diamond, gemologists at Graff, the owners, “spent many months studying the nuances of the stone… [after which] imagination, exceptional skill and intense precision came into play.”* This is similar to the process of creating Empress Elixir, which requires a profound knowledge and artistry that can only be mastered through the crucial “10,000 hours” of focussed work.

An elixir is an alchemical “preparation designed to… prolong life indefinitely; a sovereign remedy”** for all ills. While Wendy would hardly claim to have discovered the Fountain of Youth, she has worked her magic to bring you the multi-faceted, nuanced and exquisite Empress Elixir, bringing the art of self-nurturing to an entirely new level.

Now you can offer loving-kindness to your skin with the most nourishing skin serum this side of Shangri La. Only one pump twice daily boosts elasticity, firmness and suppleness. Buy yours today!

Empress Elixir suits all skin types and smooths out scars and lines. Dark Violet Miron glass protects Empress Elixir’s precious extracts. Now in spill-proof pump dispenser.

Raw, organic and activated to align you with Universal flow.

Vegetarian, vegan friendly and non-comedogenic. Tested on friends. (Never animals).

Directions: Pump once into your hand. Press onto your skin with gentle fingertapping.

For best results, use with Jardin de Fleurs cleanser, Drench collagen-building facial spray and Heart of Eternity face cream.

    It’s my cheeky magic wand for laugh lines.
    And an extra moisture boost on cold windy days!

  2. Jenny Borthwick, age 80, landscaper and grandmother (store manager)

    It is doing wonders for the scar!

  3. Kim Thalheimer, director and mom of two (store manager)

    I am always excited and delighted to receive my products – it feels like Christmas!
    Even better, I love using the artisan creations.
    My skin simply feels better

    Wendy puts her knowledge, training, experience, heart and soul into the development of her formulations, always conscious of the environmental footprint, providing access of glorious products with the finest ingredients to everyday women.

    Hello Wendy,

    WOW! What an absolutely lovely box of gorgeousness. I have opened the elixir which smells utterly divine and just put a small drop on my hand to try it. It feels wonderful. How quickly it sinks into the skin without leaving an oily residue. That’s genius! I am so looking forward to trying it on the old wrinkles and how special to have something so beautiful that has been lovingly hand “mixed” in your magic lab. True Alchemy.

    Well I am so far feeling like a princess with her own bespoke skin care range. So thank you.

  5. Sophia Krzeczunowicz, business owner in Ascot (store manager)

    As for the Empress…DREAMY. Am loving every moment of using it. At first I was putting too much on my face, you really only need tiny amounts and it is Oh so heavenly. It just sinks in and makes your skin appear so soft and bright. I don’t use it every single day, most days but not every, and my skin has become so soft. And I love the scent of it (sorry to mention scent again!) – it smells so organic and rich and I just get a real hit of almost a rosehip and Frankincense and first thing in the morning or even at night that gives a real sense of calmness.

  6. Gen Shawe in Manchester (store manager)

    Love the elixir. I have it on the tops of my hands as they are sun damaged and it really is making a difference. Thank you

    Wendy’s products are AMAZING! The quality & craftmanship is second to none! I have the Empress Elixir. It is divine! Like a silk kiss on my skin. As a professional therapist I make a lot of my own lotions & potions….but Glow Skincare is in another league!

    • Wendy Gardner (store manager)

      Thank you Donna!! I’m so glad you love your Empress Elixir. It means a lot as you are the person who got me interested in the world of aromatherapy.
