I write, read, travel, garden, renovate, work, drink coffee - all the usual things. My lovely partner often accompanies me, and of course my constant companions, two feisty terriers, are never far from my side. We live in and enjoy South Australia.

Feeling jaded? Looking more than your age, and tired of making excuses. (I haven't been sleeping/eating/drinking too well ... I've been out in the sun too much ... I've got my great granny's genes for prematurely ageing skin ...) I used to make excuses. I worked too hard. I had no time for more than a dab of cosmetic cream morning and night. Which clearly wasn't doing enough for my over 40's skin.

Then I visited Vickie Placzek-Prettejohn. She's a Herbalist. I know this woman is a solid 8 years older than me. Embarrassingly she looked a good decade younger than me! I felt old and worn and tired and crinkly. It was quite a downer. All my excuses didn't save me from the harsh realities facing me. I was not doing the right thing for my skin.

Vickie was just beginning to establish her home business then, hand-making all natural herbal skin care creams. Vickie grows many of the ingredients in her own garden in Keyneton, South Australia, and she sources others that she needs within Australia. She is very particular about quality.

Vickie Placzek-Prettejohn has a long background working in laboratories, having worked in the exacting field of wine production for most of the big names that you would know from the Barossa Valley.

I took her recommendation and began using her herbal day and night creams. It took only a few weeks to see real results.
