Makeup Monday: SOBO Skin Care Review

*This post is sponsored by Brandbacker and SOBO Skin Care, but all opinions are my own*
Here's to another skin care focused post, who else is excited? As you know, lately I've been very serious about my skin and also ways to "anti-age" it (or rather slow down that process lol). This time I was sent and asked to review SOBO's ULTRA Age Repairing Cream with Reserveratol.

I was excited as always to try another new product that could possibly make my skin look flawless and also help erase some wrinkles that are starting to form thanks to the California sun blinding me each morning and evening. 

I wish I could have taken before pictures (I was so busy I actually forgot , forgive me?) to show you the difference in my skin. But since that didn't happen, you will just have to go by my word ( I promise complete honesty!). 

This cream is made with organic products like jojoba oil and apricot kernel oil as well as helpful stuff like reserveratol, squalene and hyaluronic acid, all of which help reduce the signs of wrinkles. As I've said before I know I'm only 22 years old, but it's never too early to prevent wrinkles. I mean wouldn't you rather prevent then succumb to creepy facelifts later on in life?! I know personally, I'd rather opt for doing a little prevention and look more natural. I know wrinkles are inevitable, but at least this way, my face won't be full of them and I can still retain a somewhat youthful look. 

What I like best about this cream is how light weight it is and how smooth is goes on. And as with the previous products I've used, a little goes a LONG way. It's very moisturizing and makes my skin feel soft. Even better, right when I started using it, I had gotten this nasty pimple (thanks Aunt Flo) that left a big mark on the side of my cheek. I can be almost positive that this cream is what helped that scar fade faster than similar scars have been in the past. 

I really have nothing negative to say about it. I use it now day and night and love that it's made its way into my rotation. The company also offers their Age Smoothing Eye Serum, their ULTRA HGF Youth Serum and their Essential Moisturizing Cream, all of which I want to try. 

Don't you want to try these all natural products that will make your skin just look amazing? Well lucky for you SOBO is offering a 25% discount for my readers. Just head over to SOBO's website  and type in the promo code: TRYSOBO. 

Let me know in the comments below what you think and if you  try the products. Also let me know any requests for post on the blog. And now go have a Happy Monday :)

Love, 
Astrid

  1. I love a good face cream or serum. I've fallen off my nightly regime of applying it. I haven't heard of this brand - I'm a little warry of trying new skin care items. I'm more into trying new foundations etc. Have you used Philosophy skin care products? I freakin' love everything in their line.

  13. I tried SOBO, but they only sent me a sample size, so it's really hard to know if it worked as well as it should have. I loved how it felt on my face though.

    ReplyDelete

  22. I don't blame you for being anal about skincare, it's so important! I'd never heard of SOBO before, sounds good to me!

    ReplyDelete
  23. This sounds enticing. I love stuff that is lightweight. I need to find a new night cream anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Sounds like a great product, I try to choose anti-aging products to prevent as many wrinkles and fine lines as I can!

    ReplyDelete
  25. What a great product! Thank you for the great review!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Looks like a great product. I need some eye serum!

  29. Love the organic ingredient vibe! Super nice.

  30. Thorough review. I hate heavy creams. Not sure why the makers of those will think I want my skin to feel weighted down all day just because I have dry skin. I have to check this one out.

  33. Yea wrinkles are not fun, although I wouldn't get botox either lol

    ReplyDelete
  34. I know right?! I have oily skin so I really hate when creams are heavy. This however is super light :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Me too! They just feel easier on my skin or that can just be me thinking they do. Either way love them.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Same here. My bags are just undateable lol

    ReplyDelete
  37. Thanks for reading and glad you enjoyed.

    ReplyDelete
  38. It's always an added bonus when they are.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I was so happy with the results. I just always fear my skin going nuts or peeling.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Hadn't heard of it either, but glad I did

    ReplyDelete
  41. Me too! Acne back in the day wasn't kind

    ReplyDelete
  42. Thank you. Glad you enjoyed it :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. I was the same. I would keep it up for a couple of days then give up. Now I make sure to maintain it by keeping it on my vanity or bedside table

    ReplyDelete
  44. Same here. Glad I got to try this though.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I use to be like that. I'd just forget to put stuff on. But this one is simple. I put it on before I put on sunscreen and makeup in the mornings and then before bed.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Have you tried it before? But yes it's awesome

    ReplyDelete
  47. I wish so too. I will try to find some. I oddly enough haven't been taking a lot of selfies since I started my full time job. Will try to dig them up though :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Yea I got the sample size too, but a little went a long way and I kept it consistent. Mind you, I tried it around the end of my monthly cycle (sorry for the TMI) and after the week or so of using it, it really help calm my skin. And it does feel very nice going on :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Wasn't on mine either, but glad I was able to try it out

    ReplyDelete
  50. Definitely should. It's amazing.

    ReplyDelete
