Today, I'm going to review two of the products from the Sorbet Skincare range. I usually go to Sorbet to get my gel nails done and I'm absolutely impressed by the application they do, but I'll leave that for another diary entry.
Sorbet Hydro Skin 3-in-1 Foam Cleanser (210ml for R90):
The 3-in-1 Foam Cleanser claims to "effectively remove makeup, balance the skin with Hyaluronic Acid and Omega 3 & 6". The Foam Cleanser comes in a 210ml foam pump bottle which I thought was convenient as I like that the formulation is already in a foam consistency. I have been using this product for over a month now and use the Foam Cleanser every morning and night. I spray about 2-3 pumps of foam onto my wet hands and lather on my face. It has a very luxurious smell to it and the formulation feels like an oil base or "liquid silk" on my face (I'm actually not sure what liquid silk feels like but I bet it feels like this).I am quite impressed by how soft and moisturising this Foam Cleanser leaves my face, as it has the added benefits of Vitamin A & E which helped during winter.
Sorbet Salon Skin Specialist Care Daily Skin Polish Powder (75g for R220):
The Daily Skin Polish Powder is quite an unusual product and I haven't seen anything like this before so I just had to try it. The Polish Powder comes in a 75g bottle with a close cap that I found is not very convenient as I got the area around the close cap wet and some of the powder clumped and got stuck in the opening of the cap. (P.S; the bottle does say "close cap securely to avoid clumping") Oops! My mistake. I have also been using the Powder for over a month now and use it 2-3 times a week as it's a micro-exfoliator although you can use it daily. I place a small amount of the powder on my hands and add water to create a paste and apply it to my face and massage. It does foam up and leaves my skin feeling just a little bit tight, but I'm fine with that. It smells like lavender, which is one of the essential oils among grapefruit and pelargonium (which is a flower) in the powder. The powder has produced very good results for me, it has made my skin lighter and more radiant and minimised the appearance of my acne scars. It has Salicyclic Acid and Rice powder in the formulation which is a plus for my oily skin as the Salicyclic Acid will combat my blemish prone skin and rice powder will keep my skin matte. I am very happy with the results I have received from using this product and all its claims are true.
I've used both the Sorbet Hydro Skin 3-in-1 Foam Cleanser and the Sorbet Salon Skin Specialist Care Daily Skin Polish Powder for over a month now and haven't had a breakout since. Yeah! Happy dance!
Have you tried any of the other Sorbet Skincare products? I would love to hear about them as I am looking to purchase a day cream in the range.
Till next time beauty lovers…
