Most of us could do with a fairy godmother in our lives. Amiright?

We’ve got some good news for you! We’ve popped a little bit of her magic into a bottle. A serum bottle, to be precise ;) We call it our Fairy Godmother Serum.

The thing is, we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all serum. A serum is where you get a chance to deliver an absolute bucket load of active and beneficial ingredients to your skin. Since your skin is unique, you need a serum that helps your unique skin concerns.

One serum might be absolutely fantastic for one person, but causes blemishes for someone else. So this blog is here to make sure you’re using the right magic potion (serum, that is!).

What’s a serum?

For the serum newbies out there, it’s a good idea to make sure you understand what a serum is! Some brands pop some oil in a bottle and call it a serum but it’s a bit different here in Happy land.

Our serums are water-based and extremely light but choc-a-block full of incredibly active ingredients. Since it’s water based and you apply it right after cleansing and toning, your skin literally drinks it up and you get maximum benefits. Then you seal your serum in by applying your heavier oils and creams over the top.

Meet your Fairy Godmother (is she #1 or #2?)

In all of the years we’ve been working with problem skin we’ve come across a LOT of different concerns, and we wanted to make sure our new serums could help as many people as possible achieve their happy skin.

We thought of creating a marvellous one-size-fits-all serum, but it just wasn’t possible, and that’s why we’ve created 2 serums - #1 and #2 :)

Is your skin on the dry side or mature?

The Fairy Godmother #1 has been created for you! #1 is all about moisture moisture moisture and strengthening your skin’s building blocks to help reduce those sags and wrinkles.

An incredibly effective blend of glycogen, Vitamin C, Vitamin F, Kakadu Plum, coffee bean and antarctic glycoproteins (yes, they’re a thing! Extracted from a form of bacteria found in the antarctic!), this serum has rapidly become one of our best sellers.

I can’t believe how effective this product is. My skin has a renewed radiance. So much so that I feel confident enough to ditch the makeup most days. Just love it and what you guys do. Thanks Aaron and Phoebe.

I have been using the Fairy Godmother serum for two weeks now and I am loving it. It sinks in to the skin very quickly and plumps the skin up nicely. I have noticed a bit more radiance to my skin as well. Thank you.
– Jennifer

If your skin is mature but has been known to be oily or have the pimple or two, then #1 is most likely not for you as Vitamin F could be too much for your skin. Instead please read on, because our next serum could be your soulmate...

Is your skin prone to blemishes, breakouts or redness?

The Fairy Godmother #2 is your friend! #2 is all about restoring calmness and balance and also has some sensational benefits for mature skin thrown in as a bonus. It helps your skin recover from breakouts much faster, promoting strong, clear, healthy skin with less redness.

Fairy Godmother #2’s star ingredients include skin-loving MSM, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Magnesium, Snowflower and a special strain of probiotics.

This is perfect for my acne and oily skin. It really helps to clear my skin and heal it. Rather than dry it out. AMAZING

Happy 5 star review

My skin has been really sensitive and I’ve had a lot of breakouts this year. I wasn’t sure how my skin would react to this serum, but my skin is so clear now. I’ve been using it for 6 weeks and no longer get breakouts. I still get the occasional pimple but they heal really quickly now. Even my scarring has begun to fade. I’m so glad I tried it! The best part is I know it’s natural, vegan and cruelty free.

We hope this has demystified our 2 new serums for you. If you’ve tried ‘em, loved ‘em but haven’t let us know, please do! Did you know if you leave a review on our website you earn Happy points?

Yes it’s true - in Australia cosmetic products don’t need to have an expiry date displayed. But when a cosmetic chemist develops a formula the goal is for it to last *unopened* in the bottles on a shelf at room temperature for 2 years. Minimum. But how long you have to use it once it's opened is another matter.

Moth Bean - despite its very unflattering name - has some pretty flattering powers. Its greatest power lies in its ability to provide retinol (Vitamin A)-like effects on your skin, but without the side effects. You can imagine our excitement when we discovered that there's now a natural and safer retinol alternative.
