Hello guys! Today I am going to do a skincare review. I know we don’t talk about skincare a lot on our blog, but we are going to start doing more reviews because both Christine and I do face masks at least once a week!
Today I’m going to review the Sonage Patagonia Berry Stem Cell Face Mask!
- Natural and cruelty free brand!
- Supposed to work best on dry skin
- Price: $48 (which is pretty expensive!)
Promise: Antioxidant-rich intensely hydrating face mask helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Cream-textured stem cell technology leaves skin polished and visibly brighter. (from their website)
The packaging is really sturdy, it’s a glass jar with a nice lid, you could probably take this traveling and be fine, it wouldn’t break. The scent is definitely present, if you are super sensitive to fragrance, then I would recommend you smell it in store and see if it will bother you, it smells sort of like berry medicine. Personally, it didn’t bother me much at all.
It comes out purple, it isn’t a completely smooth texture, it has some small granules which work as a scrub when you take it off and it will leave your face very soft and polished. I did find that my skin looked very radiant for a day or so after, but as far as hydrating, I couldn’t see much of a difference. I would still use this for a light exfoliation and to make my skin brighter, it did my skin look lovely, just not as hydrated as I had expected. I think if you wanted anything super hydrating, and that is the sole reason you would purchase this, there are better options, my favorite is the Dr. Hauschka Hydrating mask! I don’t know what it did for wrinkle reduction because I’m seventeen and don’t have any yet!
Its this super pretty purple color when it comes out of the jar and it dries this shade as well.
- Light exfoliation
- will leave your skin bright
- feels nice on the face
- good packaging, good brand ethics, etc.
- All natural (which is a huge bonus)
- It is quite expensive
- Not as hydrating as I was expecting
- Kind of a strange scent
Overall I would say, if you are willing to spend some money on a nice mask and you want radiance out of this mask, it is a good choice. If you are looking for something that is super hydrating and brightening, I think you could find a better option on the market!
