Sothys Slimming and Firming Line $118 On Sale

sothysbodyfirming creamsothysreshaping creamsothys essential 24

These were on sale for about half off each at Sothys firming cream, Sothys reshaping cream and Sothys Essential 24 cream. I love the brand so I ordered it. These are luxurious creams with the beautiful, lightly perfumed Sothys scent. They moisturize your skin to glowing, smooth, perfection. They also help firm the skin up, and they seem to work rather quickly (see a difference after first use). Bonus, it also helps lighten stretch marks. The only con, they are highly moisturizing, but do not help shed excess water like the Thalgo slimming line, which i will purchase when I run out. However,  These are still a really nice addition. Do you know any good firming creams?

Sothys Hydra-Smoothing Mask $45.40


Love this mask. Does what is says, smooths and hydrates and makes skin look dewy. Especially if you use it after Sothys W. Cleansing Cream. The smell is light and softly perfume-y, they have their own signature sothys smell that is very luxurious. This is a staple for me to re-moisturize skin, especially after using a lot of acne medications and benzoyl peroxide face wash.

Sothys W. Cleansing Cream $24.20


I really like this skin care line. It is made in France and I think the French really know what they are doing when it comes to skin care. This face wash really moisturizes and gives your face a glow if you massage into your skin and leave for about a minute before washing off. It just makes you look healthy and really purifies the skin.

I tried this out for under eyes. I really liked it. It immediately depuffs them and smooths out lines. I think it does brighten there a little as well. So far, it is the nicest one I have tried for under my eyes. I did an overnight Nip+Fab dragons blood mask and my under eyes are still wrinkly and puffy from it. So I am looking for the cure. Any suggestions?

Nip+Fab Hydrate Dragon’s Blood Fix Plumping Mask


This mask applies thick and tacky. It has a cooling and slight burning sensation when applied to the skin. After ten minutes, and washing it off, skin is definitely plumper. The smell is exotic and fruity, if a little chemical-y. Paired with the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel, it did give my face a nice glow. However, the moisturizing effect is not very pronounced. The bottle recommends it can be used as an overnight mask, however, I found it to be a little too irritating after a night of wearing it. Also, do not put under eyes, as I mistakenly did. It plumped my under eye skin in an unnatural way and gave some wrinkles there.  At a higher price point, I really like this leave on mask,  Dr. Brandt’s Needles No More Plump Up the Volume 3D Filler Mask at for $95 (comes with an applicator brush). All in all, Nip+Fab is a decent enough product, especially for the price. Anyone else recommend a similar product or have an experience to share?

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel


I enjoyed this product. The texture is light and thin, like water. It applies nicely, has that Neutrogena brand scent and absorbs well. It is a very light moisturizer. It goes on well under makeup and other skincare products. All in all, it did not give me that special glow I was looking for. But, it does what it says and it is well priced. Has anyone else tried this one or have a great one to recommend?

Chanel UV Essentiel Daily Defense Sunscreen Anti-Pollution SPF 50


This is a magical chanel experience. The cream is light, fluidy and soft. You can feel is hydrate and moisturize as you apply it. It does not leave a tacky texture like the lower priced sunscreens. It is heavily scented with the chanel perfume-y scent, which I really like. Plus it is SPF 50. Does not interfere with makeup application, and skin is left with a smooth, hydrated texture. I highly recommend this. Any one else?


Vine Vera Resveratrol Age Defying Eye Serum


This is a miracle in a bottle. It works instantly and lifts expression lines and fine lines in your face. I was really amazed. I have been using for a few days and my boyfriend was really shocked and how my face changed. It can be used not only for eyes, but other expression lines on face. I also use it, as a super expensive skin tightener for body. It tightens tummy, butt legs, etc. It has a smooth finish and a pleasing, light, unnoticable scent. I cannot recommend this product enough. After using it for a while longer, it actually improves the absorbency and efficiency of my other products as well (Sothy’s and Yves Saint Laurent) Has anyone else tried this brand? Love or hate?


Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Melting Cleanser


This is a very luxurious wash. It is heavy and oily and leaves a heavy texture on your skin. It was a little too heavy for my taste. But it was a luxurious experience all the way. Perhaps it would be better suited for a different skin type, a dryer skin type. I have some Yves Saint Laurent Products which are heavy and luxuriously oily, so I did not need this one. Thoughts on this one?

Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Bi-Phase Peel


Good points first, its very hydrating and very gentle. It is an oily hydrator, so it leaves a dewy, slightly thick feel to your skin. However, I do appreciate a more intense peel, and this peel was very slight. I did not notice much exfoliation at all. However, if you are interested in a more moisturizing and light peel, you would appreciate this product. It is very thick in its application and leaves your skin with a thick layer of hydration via  a slightly oily, shiny feel. Does anybody have a peel they love or tried this one?
