Guest Contribution : Sorbet Hydro Skin SPF 15 Day Cream and Nigt Cream Reviews

When I heard Sorbet launched their own skincare range last year, I was extremely excited to give these products a try. Not much later Fi sent me these to be reviewed. I first finished the products I was using at the time, and excitedly started to use the Sorbet products.

Hydro Skin Set

I was sent the Hydro Skin SPF15 Day Cream and the Hydro Skin Night Cream. The Hydro Skin range was specifically developed to rehydrate tired and thirsty skin. If I would have purchased it, I would have chosen the exact same products. I am almost 33 years old and living in Mpumalanga with the dry and unpredictable weather really takes a toll on my skin.

The packaging of these products are beautiful. They look like glass pots, but are actually plastic. They look quite good on my dressing table with their clean cut look, compared to my other pots , bottles and potions with their overly branded labels. HydroSkin Day

The Day Cream is a rich face cream with a scent of fresh greens. Because it has a built in SPF of 15, I have stopped using a sunblock on my face daily. Eliminating one product during my morning routine really does make a difference. My skin  feels hydrated after application in the mornings, but the best part of this product is the fact that the moisture stays there the whole day. With this product I have no dry patches making their nasty appearance during the course of my day.HydroSkin Night

The Night Cream is a richer cream than the Day Cream also with a fresh green fragrance. I do not like my night creams to be overly fragranced to prevent irritation, but this scent is so subtle that it does not leave the skin feeling irritated or over stimulated. Of the two products, the Night Cream is my favourite. It is soothing and moisturising. In the mornings when I wake up my skin feels hydrated, soft and plump.

The Hydro Skin range contains ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, Omega 3 & 6 Fatty Acids, and Vitamin A & E which are great because I have always loved for my skincare products to have Vitamin E in. It gives the skin that extra boost that we need with factors that damages it over time.

It has been a joy using these products. I also purchased the Sorbet Salon Skin Daily Polish Powder (R220) and it is a lovely product. Combined these three products make my skin feel soft, hydrated and moisturised. I will happily only use these products for the rest of my days as they compliment my skin in so many positive ways.

You can find the Sorbet products at Sorbet Salons and Clicks stores and both the Day and Night Cream will only cost R155 each. Finally a budget beauty range that does a great job!

Introducing The Ordinary Skincare Company

A couple of months ago I was invited to the launch of the Ordinary Skincare Company for South African retailers after being an established and excellent brand overseas in the United Kingdom, the fact that the forelady is South African and uses South African ingredients, it only makes sense for the extra ordinary products be available on South African soil. The products being made locally in new facilities in Cape Town to pharmaceutical industry GMP standards.  The mission from Aesthetic Medicine expert and the ever so passionate founder of the Ordinary Skincare Company, Dr. Claire Jamieson knew that issues surrounding sensitive skin and products made to help them were not delivering effective or long term results due to excessive ingredients which cause multiple reactions rather than results. With having personal experiences of her daughter suffering from long term eczema she was driven to find a solution to help and compiled a range using only the most natural ingredients and ensured that these were placed into ordinary crisp white hygienic, recycable packaging.

The plant oils and extracts used in the range are carefully selected in order to deliver effective results. Keeping to the core philosophy of Ordinary Skincare Company,, they use five African botanicals, being:

  • Aloe Ferox
  • Olive Oil
  • Grapeseed Oil
  •  Shea Butter
  •  Green Rooibos Leaf Extract

All of the above products boast moisturising, anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects when applied to the skin. This results in having skin being smooth, supple and healthy.

The range consists of two parts: Plain Ordinary and Extra Ordinary.
