I was lucky enough, last summer, to win a set of products from Sönd Skin’s Original range.
Specifically geared towards sensitive skin, the Original range utilises silica, a naturally occurring mineral. While we contain silica in our bodies, as we age stores become depleted and we need to boost our levels via diet or supplementation. Silica is required for collagen production, important for keeping skin looking youthful and building joint cartilage. Studies suggest that it has anti-inflammatory properties along with increasing calcium uptake, so helpful in keeping bones strong.
The products I received were:
- Replenishing Face Oil
- Revitalising Face Serum
- Hydrating Face Spray
- Energising Mineral Supplements
My first impression was that the packaging was clean and sleek and provided a clear indication of the function that each individual item was intended for, e.g – Replenishing Face Oil is to ‘Nourish + Plump’ On the back of the containers there are brief yet concise instructions on how to use each product to best effect.
Revitalising Face Serum 30ml (Firm + Smooth) –
I used this morning and evening after cleansing. One full pump was enough to provide full coverage for my entire neck and face. The serum itself is lightweight and almost scent-free, so great for those who are sensitive to fragrance in their skincare. After application, the fluid sunk in swiftly so there was no long wait time before being able to apply another product over the top. After use, my skin felt soft, smooth and slightly tighter than before, but not in an unpleasant or dehydrated way. I didn’t try applying makeup directly over the top, but with a primer in between, I didn’t suffer from any piling or flaking when I wore tinted moisturiser or foundation.
