HECKFIELD PLACE – HOME TO WILDSMITH SKIN
Heckfield Place, one of the UK’s finest and most beguiling getaways, is home and inspiration to the modern skincare brand Wildsmith Skin.
Hidden inside a beautiful and secluded 438-acre Hampshire estate, an hour’s drive from the hustle and bustle of central London, Heckfield Place’s original arboretum, was planted in the 19th century by pioneering horticulturalist William Walker Wildsmith.
Heckfield is a botanical marvel. Both tamed and gently wild, the skilfully planted terraced flower garden and pleasure grounds have seen the growth of not only gracious botanicals, but also of Wildsmith Skin. The Little Bothy Spa in the grounds offers all natural treatments and exclusive products from the brand.

ACTIVE SUPER EYE SERUM HK$830/15ML
Skin around the eyes is very sensitive to environmental stress. Aggressors like UV, pollution, fatigue and ageing trigger an inflammatory reaction in the skin that can result in dark circles, puffiness and premature signs of ageing. Elderflowers are rich in flavonoids and other polyphenols for strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory action. It works to decrease inflammation, reduce the expression of anchoring proteins that causes blood plasma to pass into skin cells, resulting in puffiness, and to reduce iron oxidation of the blood, which causes dark circles. Paracress Flowers have been shown to boost the function of fibroblasts, which in turn produce more elastin and collagen, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
*An active extract from Elderberry Flowers acts on blood cells and proteins under the skin to help to reduce dark circles, inflammation and puffiness around the eyes.
*Paracress Flower helps to reinforce the architecture of the dermis and fights the signs of ageing by stimulating the biomechanical functions of fibroblasts, boosting elastin and collagen production.
*Green Coffee Extract has a higher content of chlorogenic acid than roasted coffee beans. It contains caffeine and other polyphenols that combat free radicals, help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and provide antioxidant and anti-pollution action.
