Today, I present to you another beauty review of yet another quality skin care item (and special guest appearance by Olaf the adopted cat because it’s getting difficult to shoot photos in the house without any furry photo-bombers)!

I was happy to receive a little magic-in-a-bottle sample from SOBO Skin Care earlier in the week, and after doing some research (big tip: always research new beauty products prior to trying them!), I eagerly included it into my nighttime routine along with my other skin care items (remember the Valentia serum? I’m still using it and loving it!). But before I delve in deeper, let’s backtrack a little and gain some insight into the indie company:

“SOBO Skin Care was built on a clear philosophy of what should (and shouldn’t) be in quality skin care products. The primary focus has always been to formulate cleansers, toners, creams and serums that are made with as many natural organic ingredients as possible, but without compromising the efficacy that women expect. To accomplish this we combine wonderful organic ingredients like orange flower extract, hops and strawberry oil with others proven to provide visible results like hyaluronic acid, human growth factor and ceramide 3 to effectively and gently rejuvenate skin. SOBO is dedicated to setting a new gold standard in the years to come for indie skin care products of all types. Natural, wholesome, honest, and effective — that’s the SOBO value system in a nutshell.”


The particular bottle I received was the Ultra Age Repairing Cream with Resveratrol. The thing I love about it the most (aside from its effectiveness and gentle touch on all skin types) is probably its scent, or, should I say, lack of scent; there’s no hint of chemical smells, which is always a plus when it comes to beauty products! The cream also goes on smoothly and dries quickly, leaving no traces of color or sticky/oily residue.

Aside from the physical aspects of the cream, I also must point out SOBO’s ‘NO’ promise to its clients – None of the following are included in the SOBO skin care items: parabens, sulfates, phthalates, GMOs, synthetic dyes/gragrances, triclosan, animal testing.

And while we’re on the subject of anti-aging skin care (seriously, I can NOT stress how important it is to start caring for your skin! Don’t wait until wrinkles and spots are already formed to begin, because by then, it just might be too late), here’s a great article by SOBO that offers an in-depth understanding of the process, and here’s an even more important article that explains dangerous and toxic skin care ingredients.

In the meantime, check out the other items in the SOBO beauty collection:
Ultra HGF Youth Serum
Age Smoothing Eye Serum
Essential Moisturizing Cream
