Sönd Skincare

Sönd are a UK based skincare brand which creates their products over in Germany and work with top silica scientists and skincare specialists across Europe. I came across Sönd some time ago thanks to my love of beauty boxes.
Sönd Skincare
Sönd believe everyone can improve their skin with silica as follows:

  • Collagen production – silica sits inside collagen acting as glue to provide the connective tissue with strength, flexibility and resilience.
  • Water retention – with it’s ability to create bonds with protein molecules (collagen & keratin) and polysaccharides which, are responsible for the skin’s natural ability to hydrate and retain water.
  • Soothe irritated skin – as the silica can form strong bonds with free radicals, reducing inflammation.
  • Improves the blood vessels’ ability to deliver oxygen and nutrients to skin cells by increasing their elasticity and firmness.
The first product I have been using is the newest to the brand - Sönd Gentle Daily Cleanser (£22). Described as being a gentle but effective cleansing cream which contains both Shea and Cocoa butter which work together to lift off impurities from your skin without stripping away essential moisture, alongside the extracts of chamomile and marigold which will soothe and calm your skin due to their natural antibacterial and anti inflammatory properties. To use the cleanser you really need at most between three and four pumps of the cleanser for massaging onto your face and neck and then once you have massaged it on, you rinse and remove using a muslin cloth or whatever your preference might be.

What I really like about this cleanser is that it has a pump action dispenser which means minimal waste of the product and that it works whether your skin is wet or dry. My preference is to use it on dry skin, as I do similar products and given there is a very subtle floral fragrance, my skin isn't left feeling tight or dry after using. 

The second product is one I have tried before but as a sample (here) and it is the Hydrating Face Spray (£24). I am a huge fan of face mists/sprays and insist that there is always one to be used whether I am at home or at work. This one from Sönd is described as being "A gentle water based infusion of silica that’s quick to apply, it’s a simple, everyday essential for healthier skin". The use of a light aqua-based infusion of silica is said to prepare your skin to receive best results from other products. 
Sönd Skincare
On the skin, this spray is lightweight and does not leave your skin soaking wet. One of my pet hates with a face spray is the dispersal of too much product and the soaking of the skin. If spritizing it directly onto the face is not for you, can you spray it to the palms of your hands or onto a cotton wool pad and then pat it onto the skin. It is really refreshing and a great little pick me up for those mid afternoon slumps when you have been slaving away at the desk and just want a disco nap (which you should also have) or you can use it as a toner which is a great way of adding it into your skincare routine. I use it as a face mist and it does leave my skin feeling hydrated and refreshed and because it is fragrance free, it is perfect for sensitive skin too. 

In total, Sönd has got five products on offer; Gentle Daily Cleanser, Energising Mineral Supplements, Replenishing Facial Oil, Revitalising Face Serum and Hydrating Face Spray and they are definitely worth looking at and trying.

  2. When I saw Cleanse & Calm, I thought this might suit my skin but I react very badly to shea butter & cocoa butter in my facial skincare so I'll give it a miss! xx
