95: #SOFINA #Skincare
- IP Base #Essence
Sometime back I said I would do an ingredients review on these @sofina_sg
products, and I'm finally getting around to doing it! .
essence (blue bottle): this is a really cool foam essence, to be used after cleansing but before other skincare. The foam contains carbon dioxide which is supposed to have skincare benefits. It mostly has humectants (dipropylene glycol), and emollients (dimethicone, C12-15 alkyl benzoate), as well as various polymers and things like that. Overall it's a nice if basic essence, and a nice first step in the routine.
💦Lotion: This is the 2nd step, and also mostly contains various humectants (dipropylene glycol, butylene glycol, glycerin), and various carbomers and polymers, similar to the essence, just without the carbon dioxide. There is some alcohol (8th ingredient), but it doesn't seem to be there in overly high amounts. For those who like plant ingredients, there's a few in here too (e.g. Ginger root).
💦Emulsion: This 3rd step has much of the same humectants that featured in the previous steps (dipropylene glycol, butylene glycol, glycerin), but this has more emollients (dimethicone, stearyl alcohol, squalane), although overall the product feel still isn't too heavy. Some of the ingredients are really interesting (phytosphingosine, cholesterol), and could be beneficial for skin. There are also quite a few plant extracts here for those who like that (horse chestnut, ginger root etc.)
💦I think these #SOFINAsg
products do show a care into formulating along the brands philosophy, with each step as intended (e.g. CO2 in the 1st step, a more emollient product in the 3rd step), and you can tell the brand has put in effort with the formulas, and it's not just a "copy and paste" type job. Worth checking out if you're into #asianskincare!
