SÖND • Anti-Ageing Skincare for Sensitive Skin!

Sönd skincare 
Skincare has been a huge part of my life for so many years as it is where my beauty career began and still to this day, I have the same passion for it now as I did back then. You may have guessed this if you are a regular to my blog or Instagram. I was contacted a few months back by a lovely new company to the scene, SÖND skincare, to see if I would like to try their brand. Being someone who loves to try new brands, this excited me very much. SÖND  is totally new to me so I had no influence in knowing anything about it, which intrigued me even more in getting to see how it performed and what their whole philosophy was about. 


SÖND is a new anti-ageing skincare system for sensitive skin (and all other skin types) with currently just four products to the whole line. They believe that everyone can improve their skin with Silica. Created using quartz, silica is an incredible natural mineral that's known to have a number of health benefits. In the skin, silica is required to produce collagen and is a natural anti-imflammory making the products ideal for those with sensitive skinThe name SÖND comes from the German word 'besonders' meaning special in which the word 'sönd' was taken. 

The Sönd skincare line is designed to improve the look and appearance of every skin type. If you suffer with very sensitive skin, adult acne, eczema, psoriasis etc then you shall know just how hard finding skincare is, especially 'anti-ageing/high tech' skincare as you usually get stuck with the very basic skincare (aka boring industrial sized skincare) that frankly does not really excite you but seems to be the only thing that suits. The fact that this brand consisting of a very simple line up of products is an anti-ageing line for your sensitive skins should excite everyone right now!!

Inside the package was a really helpful little booklet that tells you everything you need to know in easy to follow terms about the brand and each product in the line including prices. 

Sönd skincare 
Silica? ....
Yes you maybe thinking as I did and thought hold on "silica for the skin" is that not one of those little sachets of beads that you find inside a new handbag or something? Not exactly. Silica is actually naturally in our bodies when we are born in which we lose in small amounts everyday. It is found in foods such as dark leafy greens, leeks, green beans, asparagus but this is refined to the point where not much silica is left. SÖND mine the quartz and use a milling process to extract the silica so it can be used directly in their skincare. Using it in skincare helps the skin with collagen production, increases water retention, soothes irritated skins and improves the blood vessels ability to deliver oxygen and nutrients to the skin cells by increasing their elasticity and firmness. Impressive ingredient hey?!

My skin is normal to combination and not super sensitive at all but it has been going through some crazy hormone/health changes of late which has certainly affected my skin so to try a line that is designed for sensitivity made this an ideal try. I have been using the whole line over the past month and I have to say I am impressed. So let me explain the products and tell you more about why they have impressed me .... 

Sönd skincare 
Sönd skincare, energising supplements
1. Energising Mineral Supplements - 60 Capsules, £28 link!
The Energising Supplements are designed to replenish your skin with collagen forming silica to improve the look of your skin from within. They can be taken alongside any other supplements every morning. You know the saying "you get out what you put in", well that couldn't be more true! It's not good enough today to just rely solely on your products doing all the work for you, you need to work with them and help your body. I am all for supplements as having been through a rough patch of low immunity (and still working on) I have seen the huge difference that supplements like these have made to me and my health. It does take some time for them to get into your system of course but I think they have really added to the end results of my skin being back to it's normal healthy state and generally feeling much more energised. They aren't a must with this range as you can pick and choose the products that suit and your lifestyle but if you do need skin help and more energy then I would definitely recommend taking them as your body and skin shall thank you for it! 

Sönd skincare hydrating face spray

2. Hydrating Face Spray - 100ml, £24 link!
A lightweight, refreshing moisture boost, containing an aqua based fusion of high strength silica that's easy and quick to use. The moment I read 'hydrating spray' I loved it as I am a big fan of products such as these are they are the best way to refresh your skin under or over makeup which is what I need come the summer time. I will say this is definitely an intense spray instead of a very fine mist so make sure you aren't too close when spraying or alternatively use on a cotton pad. It has zero scent and leaves your skin feeling super hydrated so it certainly does what it says. This really cooled my skin down and made a great refresher after having been out to the beach on a hot and humid day, also waking me up. I love this product as it is something that everyone should own as it really is the easiest way of soothing your skin and getting hydration into it fast, especially if you get that tight feeling, then a few mists of this and its gone! One for the handbag.

Sönd skincare revitalising face serum

3. Revitalising Face Serum - 30ml, £42 link!
A day/night serum that delivers a high concentration of collagen boosting silica and sodium hyaluronate to firm and smooth the skin. I knew from the first pump of this that it would be ideal for all skin types as it has no scent whatsoever and it's incredibly light and silky in texture. This feel gorgeous on the skin as it really is super silky and absorbs thoroughly to leave your skin feeling hydrating and visibly a lot smoother. Again I am a huge serum fan as they really are that one key skincare product that produces fast results and I do feel this has played a big part in keeping my skin happy without any hormonal breakouts (none!) or crazy behaviour. You will notice results instantly with this serum. I assure you. If you are not a fan of serums or you have been too scared to try them because you are 'that sensitive' then can I recommend that you please please try this one because I think it shall change your mind about serums; it really is very inoffensive and just effective. 

Sönd skincare replenishing face oil

4. Replenishing Face Oil - 30ml, £34 link!
The Face oil is designed to soften skin with silica and coconut oil leaving it feeling nourished  and refreshed, restoring suppleness and radiance to all skin conditions. This is indeed a 'non-oily' oil and if you are scared of products such as this then you shouldn't be anymore with this one. Oils are again such a benefit to every skin type and are one of the best treatments to use. I personally prefer to use this in the evening as I do all oils (being a normal/combination skin type) because I felt this one sitting lightly on my skin and wouldn't want to apply make-up over the top but at night it's a wonder because I feel like my skin is so comforted to which I wake up to that same feeling. If you are more on the dry side then you shall love this day and night I am certain. The scent is very subtle, almost peppermint like to me, but a nice refreshing scent. My skin does look brighter each time I use this oil, which is a reason why I love face oils in general as they just give life back to the skin and restore any lost glow, a good one does anyhow! A little goes a long way so I can see this lasting a long time. 

Sönd skincare 
Finally an anti-ageing brand for sensitive skins, so anyone with conditions such as sensitivitydryness, excema, psoriasis, rosacea or any skin type at all should definitely try this brand out if you have struggled with finding skincare in the past! I did write a blog post here about some other skin helpers for stressed skins but they were fairly basic in terms of anti-ageing.

The thing I really like about this brand is that the products in the line are all treatment based as opposed a cleanser, or a moisturiser so if you have a skincare regime already in place that you are happy with but you find you need to add in a treatment now and then to help with sensitivity issues then this is your answer. Adding in a serum, oil or supplement for example is so easy and something that won't freak your skin out, instead it shall help to remedy the problem. You can mix and match your skincare to suit you and there aren't many brands like that. 

You don't have to use everything in the line to get the results, it all depends on your needs and preferences to products but if your in need of desperate help then using the whole line together would definitely be a good idea. Obviously using the supplements alongside any of these products shall most definitely optimise your results but it depends on your level of sensitivity. The colour coding helps you to know the order in which your supposed to use the products too as I know many people still struggle with knowing what goes where?! I love the branding and the packaging as it's all so clean cut and very easy to read and follow. All products are gluten free, vegan friendly and most importantly not tested on animals. Hooray!

  2. Kelly I really loved this well written review and brand introduction! The brand sounds like something I would benefit from!! I first thought it to be Swedish, as Söndag is our word for Sunday lol. The serum and mist looks divine and as you said: really nice with a range that is divided into treatment properties rather than basic products! Kisses my love, tell them to send me a full kit as well hahahaha ;-). M, That Luxurious Feeling
