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!

First Impressions : Salon Skin Daily Skin Polish Powder

So, it’s taken me some time but I am finally diving into my wonderful Sorbet products that I received at the Sorbet Skin Show towards the end of last year. This morning, I was awake early (this does not happen often) and I had time to try the Sorbet Skin Daily Skin Polish Powder. Daily Skin Polish

I’ve been working through hoards of products in my beauty bathroom/desk and this one stood out today… I have neglected on the exfoliating of my skin in the past few weeks (bad bad beauty blogger) and it felt a bill dull so a good perk up with the help a light exfoliation helped my skin to feel not only a bit brighter but more alive.

Here was my morning. Excuse the morning face/hair. #iwokeuplikethis and all of that nonsense.

Left: morning face, unwashed face, sleepy eyes. Middle: busy using the powder mixed with the water. Right: Happy-ish face that has been rinsed.

So, essentially the product is a dry powder. You wet your hands thoroughly and squeeze a bit of dry powder into your wet hands and mix it together. It makes a gorgeous creamy concuction that you apply to your face and rinse off. It leaves your skin feeling smooth and slightly brighter. You are supposed to use it everyday but after one use I can see a noticeable difference and I’m prancing around today with no makeup on and feeling wonderful (bad beauty blogger again…. Sandy might disown me).

It retails for R220.00 from Sorbet salons and Clicks nationwide. I believe it will be an excellent addition to your skincare routine.
