Vo Beauty - Rise & Shine, Skin Water, Beauty Sleep

Today I’m reviewing a lovely box of skincare from Vo Beauty – they’re a sustainable cruelty free luxury skincare line based in Toronto. Diana Vo, the founder of the brand, is a holistic esthetician and facialist. I received the Rise & Shine Gel Cleanser, the Skin Water 2% Hyaluronic Acid Serum and the Beauty Sleep Mask.

Here’s the Rise & Shine Gel Cleanser:

Vo Beauty - Rise & Shine Low pH Gel Cleanser

Our gel cleanser is made to balance your skin pH without stripping of its natural oils. Formulated with sulfate-free surfactants from coconuts and apples so it’s more gentle on the skin

– Aloe vera is soothing and replenishes moisture

Vitamin B3 is anti-inflammatory and prevents irritation

I love a good gel cleanser, especially in the warmer months. This one is gentle, and my skin feels clean but soft after using. This cleanser works for all skin types – dry, sensitive, oily, acne prone, and mature skin. You can also use it when you do a double cleanse routine.

Skin Water 2% Hyaluronic Acid Serum:

Vo Beauty - Skin Water Hyaluronic Acid Serum

Instantly plump and hydrate your skin with this hyaluronic acid serum that makes your skin feel like it just drank water. It replenishes the hyaluronic acid that you produce less of as you age.

Hyaluronic acid retains moisture better than any other ingredient and absorbs faster
Aloe vera retains and replenishes moisture
Allantoin calms, soothes, and prevents dryness and irritation

This is a beautiful serum, it soak into my skin so quickly and my skin feels less dry since I’ve been using it. It plays nicely with every other serum and facial cream that I’ve tried it with so far! Makes my skin feel so fresh and hydrated.

Beauty Sleep:

Vo Beauty - Beauty Sleep Leave On Mask

Wake up to skin that’s less tight, less red, and quenched of thirst with this leave-on mask that hydrates, softens, and plumps. Its hydrating properties prevent wrinkles and its cool, soothing effect makes it great for irritations and after-sun care.

Aloe vera & rose hydrate your skin
Royal jelly, vitamin e, and hibiscus (botox plant) plump and feed your skin with antioxidants
Glycerin humectant locks in moisture

Vo Beauty - Beauty Sleep Leave On Mask

This stuff is amazing! Not just as a sleeping mask, it also works great as a hydrating primer before makeup. Super gentle, hydrating and non-greasy. My skin loves this. It really does plump the skin! Such a beautiful and essential skincare product! The jelly texture just sinks into my skin and makes it look and feel radiant and smooth.

I have a few of their products on my wishlist for when I finish up some things in my current skincare stash.

Have you tried anything from Vo Beauty?

Sothys Chrono-Destressing Sleeping Mask Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of one of the new products from the Sothys nO2ctuelle Range that was sent to me from Sothys Canada and Poz Pub Inc. The newnO2ctuelle  range is targeted for nighttime usage. [info in italics taken from the Sothys Canada press release]

Sothys nO2ctuelle Chrono-Destressing Sleeping Mask

Lack of sleep, hectic lifestyle and daily aggression, put a strain on skin every day. Sothys tackles this problem with its night range, which takes visible action to counter environmental factors of ageing.

Because there is twice as much cellular renewal activity at night than during the day, Sothys developed a trio of winning products, to help the skin erase the visible signs of daytime damage caused by the environment, and visible work against premature skin ageing.

Sothys nO2ctuelle Chrono-Destressing Sleeping Mask

The line includes the Detox Resurfacing Overnight Cream ($109.50 CAD), the Relaxing Pillow Mist ($34.50 CAD) and the Chrono-Destressing Sleeping Mask ($62.50 CAD for eight 4ml masks).

A little bit about the Chrono-Destressing Sleeping Mask:

A formula packed with stabilized anti-ageing vitamin C plant extracts from oxygen-like nasturtium and active ingredients to capture light and promote skin wellness.

Ideally, apply 1 to 2 times per week instead of your usual cream and leave on the face and neck for 10 minutes. A new beauty routine and a first step toward letting go with a subtle fragrance that beckons sleep. A trifecta of citrus fruits are layered over a base of cedar and musk.

With vitamin C, nasturtium, chaste tree and lindera extracts, the Chrono-Destressing Sleeping Mask reduces the signs of ageing with a smoothing effect you can see from the first application. It requires a specific massage to improve its benefits: apply it with flattened palms to relaxing pressure points form the forehead to the base of the neck. Skin is visibly replenished and relieved from fatigue when you awaken.

I was able to get several uses from each of the mask packs that I received. Each time I used the Chrono-Destressing Sleeping Mask I woke up with glowing and smooth skin! I do wish that I had more packages of the sleeping mask, so I could test it out for a longer period of time!

Scent-wise it is very spa-like with its citrus, and cedar blend. I really cannot smell the musk (thankfully, as I don’t enjoy musk scents). The scent is very mild and disappears as the mask soaks into the skin. The fragrance did not trigger any sensitive skin reactions for me.

Sothys is available at institutes and spas across Canada (and worldwide).

I’ve previously reviewed some makeup from Sothys Fall Winter 2017 Collection (here) and their Crème Jeunesse / Youth Cream (here) if you want to check it out.
