Recently, I’ve switched up my skincare routine after the lovely team at Forever Living sent me their Sonya Daily Skincare System. I’d been getting very lazy with my skincare – sometimes I could barely even muster up the motivation to use my favourite Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish to take my makeup off at night – however, these amazing products hit my bathroom and I literally haven’t stopped using them since.
The products came in the most gorgeous packaging. The green bag is really spacious – it fits all four products in, so it’s perfect for travelling (and it’s really all you need for your skincare; it doesn’t include a toner but that isn’t really an essential item). I even keep the products inside this bag on the side in my bathroom, as it’s a lot neater.
The tubes for the products themselves are lovely too; they’re white or green, and they have a really lovely spa like feel to me. It feels quite special when you’re doing your skincare routine using these products, which is just the best way to feel really.
WHAT COMES INSIDE THE BAG?
Inside the bag you get four products:
- Refreshing gel cleanser
- Illuminating gel
- Refining gel mask
- Soothing gel moisturiser
The products are made especially for combination skin, and aim to tackle it’s fluctuating nature with a science-meets-nature gel-based technology, helping to deliver the benefits of aloe where your skin needs it most. I personally love the gel-based texture of these products; they feel really moisturising, and yet manage to stay light on the skin, and leave your face feeling very refreshed – perfect for spring and summer!
SONYA REFRESHING GEL CLEANSER
I am a big fan of this cleanser. It feels so natural, and because I’m so used to using cream cleansers, I think I forgot how much I enjoyed a gel cleanser. My face feels way more refreshed and clean. It smells very spa like and green (green is definitely not a scent, but describing scents isn’t a strongpoint of mine anyway), and really wakes me up on a morning. It’s really helped in making my skin look a lot brighter, and while I don’t necessarily suffer with breakouts, I haven’t had any major ones in the past few months I’ve been using this cleanser.
SONYA ILLUMINATING GEL
After using the cleanser, you apply the illuminating gel. This stuff is really amazing. I use it every day, morning and evening without fail. It really makes my skin so glowy, and makeup sits on my skin a lot nicer. It helps to give a really radiant, dewy look which is perfect for spring. After using this, my skin feels so moisturised and soft. It absorbs really quickly, which makes this whole skincare process really quick and easy; it takes virtually no time at all, but means you get to care for your skin really well – a win in my books!
SONYA SOOTHING GEL MOISTURISER
(excuse my poorly hidden chipped nail polish in the picture above!)
The moisturiser is my usual final step in this skincare routine; it’s literally three steps, could not be simpler! I really like this moisturiser. It’s not too thick, but also not too watery, so it absorbs really quickly but leaves my skin feeling super plump and hydrated. Just like the other products, it smells very fresh and spa-like, very relaxing.
SONYA REFINING GEL MASK
The final product in this set is the refining gel mask. This goes on your face after the illuminating gel but before moisturising. The mask controls oil and brightens your complexion, and while I don’t have very oily skin, I can definitely see how it brightens up my skin when I use it! The best thing about this mask is that you leave it on overnight, which I am definitely a fan of. It means you don’t have to wait for anything to dry, as it soaks in pretty quick, but you can leave it on for a long time to get the most out of the mask! I don’t use this every night, probably 2-3 times a week, as that is definitely enough to get the benefit from it!
HAVE I ENJOYED USING THE SONYA DAILY SKINCARE SYSTEM?
Definitely! I’ve seen a real improvement in the brightness of my skin and it’s become a lot softer. I can’t wait to continue using it, and a big thanks to Forever Living for sending it out to me. Don’t forget to check out the products here!
