A Review of Sond Skin Care and why their my new favourite skincare brand


   

Just before Christmas Sond Skincare reached out to me to review some of their skincare line I was a bit unsure about saying yes because it was really busy during Christmas and I have never heard of this brand in my life. I was asked to review their New Alkine Skincare range and suddenly the previous science student in me was intrigued.

Sond Skincare has the belief that everyone should feel good about their skin. Their aim is to help those with sensitive skin which is why we are at the forefront of Alkaline & Silica products. Despite this sounding new, alkaline products are not a new discovery. From Egyptians bathing in salt lakes up until the 1950s, alkaline skincare was considered fundamental for having a regenerating effect on the skin. This all changed in the 1950’s when the skincare industry moved more towards products that were easier to produce and keep in an acidic state, since then there has been an increase in the number of people who refer to their skin as being ‘sensitive’ or hyperreactive. 

I know the concept of Alkaline sounds a bit confusing but its quite simple, Alkaline refers to the pH level. Water has a neutral pH of 7, while most skin care products have a lower pH of around 5.5, and our new range of products have a pH of 7.3 which is just slightly higher than water. Higher alkaline means there is more oxygen in a liquid which ensures skin cells absorb more water, improves blood flow, increases cells ability to regenerate more effectively and glowing skin. 

And if you know me I am all about glowing skin. I have to mention that I do not have sensitive skin and when I do see products that are aimed for that I automatically think it wont do much for me because my skin is Combination mostly dry with an oily t- zone but boy was I wrong.

The skincare items sent to me consisted of the Cream Cleaser- Clean Slate,  the Night Cream- Midnight Feast, The Serum- Strength Training and the Day Cream- Sidekick.



THE PACKAGING

The packaging is sleek and minimal and I love the aqua green sides on the outer packaging it just reminds me of the beach just very cool. I also love how  the bottles are there all pump bottles which is even more hygienic in my opinion. 

THE PRODUCTS
I used these products for two weeks morning and evening. 

The Cream Cleanser £22-  This cream cleanser states that it will rebalance your complexion and the shea and the cocoa butter will lift off the impurities. It contains chammomile and marigold that will soothe and calm the skin revealing a healthy glow.  I have to say that when I used this at first I loved the smell it smelled like I was in a spa and most products that are geared towards sensitive skin can be quite non scented and I have to say sensitive or non- sensitive I love my products to have some form of scent. I found this cleanser to be quite light weight and it left my skin feeliing so soft and fresh. I then followed up with the Serum.


The Serum £42 - When I pumped the Serum I was quite surprised that it looked like a cream to. Not sure if its the influence of the Ordinary but I just thought it would be a liquid or oil. The serum states that it will strentthen the natural barrier of your skin and reduce the signs of ageing. I wont list all the scientific terms in terms of the content but one thing this does contain is Hyaluronic Acid and that plumps the skin and preserves your youthful appearance. It also has Silica and Pentavitin in the serum and that keeps the skin hydrated. So overall this will also reduce any appearance of lines and wrinkles. Without reading the full contents on the box I could tell that the syrum was very moisturising without feeling overly greasy and since my skin gets so dry around these months its been so great to have this. Its left my skin feelig so soft. After this depending on whether it was day or night I followed up with  the Day Cream or the Night Cream. 

The Day Cream £34- Promises to keep your skin fighting fit and it will deeply moisture your skin. It contains all the similar ingredients I mentioned that are in the serum and the cleanser with the addition of pomegranate flower extract. It promises to strengthen the natural ski barrier and keeps your skin moistured to ease dry skin. And like the serum this is so moisturising I even tried using it one day without the serum so I can get a feel for it on its own and it literally left my ski feeling amazing without being greasy.

The Night Cream £38 - This Night Cream is quite different from the Day Cream in the sense that it contains Argan oil, Coconut oil and Hemp seed oil and active ingredients that will nourish your skin while you sleep. This promises to plum tired and dry skin while you sleep and restores skins natural smoothness. I just have to say that I love the ingredients in this alot and I am not a night cream person because I am scared of breakouts but boy do I love this it didn't break me out its not heavy and it left my skin feeling quite good in the morning.

THE RESULTS

After about 3 days of using this I noticed my skin looking more healthier and glowy. I tend to suffer from dull looking skin easily and these products just restored the luster and shine and youthfullness back to my skin. I love that these products arent overstated they literally do what they said they would do on the tin. I honestly didn't think they would work that fast ad the results would be so good because like I said I am usually a snob to products that are for sensitive skin but these products are for every skin type.  Even the ordinary that has a similar selling point in terms of skin products that don't cut corners had one product that broke out my skin. These products smell amazing and my skin loves them I even posted a photo wearing hardly any makeup and it was quite the close up which I never do. Instagram Selfie Here!

MY OVERALL THOUGHTS

I love these products genuinely usually when I review a whole line I love one or two products more out of the bunch but I literally love all of these products everything from the packaging, to the smell to how it makes my skin look. I also don't revisit a whole product line after I have done a review but I ended up going back to using this after my review because it was saving my skin and I noticed the difference when I don't use these products. I love natural products that help the skin like argan oil, shea, cocoa butter and I these products are so beneficial to the skin and to see them in these products alongside the higher levels of alkaline. I also love that they produce products to help those with sensitive skin because unlike other skin types that can use practically everything sensitive skin users have to put more thought into what they purchase. So yes I would purchase these again with my money when their done because I am #obsessed and I highly recommend them.

Just wanted to say to Sond Skin care a massive thank you for sending me these products to review. These products were sent for reviewing purposes and they are my unbiased opinion.

All products mentioned can be found on Sond Skincare's Website if you would like to purchase. They are also selling sets for a more discounted price.

  16. Apricot portion oil is an incredible sustaining and emollient oil that is effectively consumed. These properties are ascribe to the high rates of oleic and linoleic acids. Besides, apricot bit oil is likewise a fantastic wellspring of vitamin A, display in the unsaponifiable issue.obagi eye cream
