Today I’m reviewing three products from the new Detoxify – Energize / Detox Energie Skincare Collection from Sothys, that was kindly gifted to me from the PR team PozPub / Sothys Canada. [info in italics taken from press release and Sothys website]
This collection aims to detox and protect the skin from pollution, which is a cause of premature aging on the skin. The Detox Energie / Detoxify Energize line was developed to make the skin more luminous, better oxygenated, and boosted, its youthful radiance restored.
There are five items in the Detox Energie / Detoxify Energize line: Energizing Serum / Sérum énergisant intégral (depollute / oxygenate), Protective Depolluting Essence / Essence dépolluante protectrice (anti-pollution shield), Instant Energizing Corrector / Correcteur énergisant instantané (unify), Energizing Radiance Ampoules / Ampoules éclat énergisantes (smoothing), and Depolluting Youth Cream / Crème jeunesse dépolluante (rebalance the microbiome) .
I received the Energizing Serum, Protective Depolluting Essence and Instant Energizing Corrector and have been testing them out for a few weeks now. Let’s take a closer look at each one:
Energizing Serum / Sérum énergisant intégral:
This powerful detoxifying and energizing cocktail is an incredibly gentle and light-textured serum: the ideal boost to your skincare ritual. Skin regains its vitality and looks younger.
Key ingredients: Organic energizing Siberian ginseng root extract (Protects the cell to maintain good energy levels and boosts intracellular energy) and Organic elderberry extract – A complete active ingredient to protect against pollution 92%*. Anti-free radical. * Anti-pollution protection: 92% – in vitro testing of keratinocytes exposed to urban pollution.
This is a light, milky looking serum. It absorbs into my skin quickly and feels very gentle, but hydrating without feeling sticky or greasy. It is scented, but does not trigger a reaction for me.
Protective Depolluting Essence / Essence dépolluante protectrice:
To incorporate into your beauty ritual every day, and protect your skin’s youth. This formula works like a barrier against pollution. Its innovative dropper bottle provides just the right amount of protection, every day while enveloping the skin in an ultra-comfortable hydrating veil. * Depolluting = helps to limit damaged to the skin caused by pollution.
Key ingredients: Detoxifying peptides [Biomimetic design. 360°global antipollution (outdoor/ indoor/internal)], Organic energizing Siberian ginseng root extract and Organic elderberry extract.
In the morning, this is applied after your moisturizer, and in the evening, before applying moisturizer. This is a very watery essence, but it absorbs into the skin fairly quickly, leaving a very slight tacky finish at first (but the tackiness disappears quickly). This one is also scented – but again, does not trigger a reaction for me.
Instant Energizing Corrector / Correcteur énergisant instantané:
An incredible texture that transforms during application to adapt to all skin tones and skin types EE* cream contains encapsulated pigments to instantly target and correct any imperfections visible on the skin’s surface. * Energy Enhancer
Key Ingredients: Detoxifying peptides, Organic energizing Siberian ginseng root extract and Organic elderberry extract.
This one is very much a blurring and brightening product, and it makes my skin so glowy and radiant. You can use it one its own for makeup free days, or as a primer before makeup. This turned out to my my favourite of the three products, and I find myself only wearing foundation when I have client meetings, and the rest of the time just wearing this with under-eye concealer and a touch of setting powder – it makes my skin look so good!
Have you tried anything form the Sothys Detox Energie / Detoxify Energize line?
