A year or so ago, I told you about a beauty brand I’d come across called Sond. They had invited me to a meditation class in Regent’s Park under an old willow tree. It was one of the most peaceful starts to the day I’ve ever had. And now I want to tell you more about them.
So, to get back to the start, Sond was originally designed to help people with sensitive skin. That said, the incredibly high efficacy of their products mean that it is great for any skin type. I don’t have particularly sensitive skin, but I use the serum religiously and it is so incredibly hydrating that for the first time in years I’m no longer told my skin is dehydrated when I go for a facial.
At Sond, their philosophy runs in line with beauty being not only skin deep – beauty from the inside out and the outside in. Which means they are committed to improving customers’ health as well as their skin, so will never use parabens or synthetics. The products all focus on improving the health of cells, aka the building blocks of skin. Simply because, when cells have the nutrition they need, they’re able to carry out tasks more effectively. Which means you will be creating healthier skin.
Intrestingly, Sond are one of the only brand I know to rely so heavily on using Silica, which is a powerful mineral that’s naturally present within all of us. It is totally natural, and using it in skincare allows skin to mimicks what it already does, but better. So by using Sond you are essentially giving your skin an accidental detox, because you’re stripping back all the excess, and just giving it what it really needs.
The packaging is clear, simple and clean. Importantly, each product clearly states what the product is and why it’s good. Which means you don’t need to be a skincare expert to understand them. And if you’re wondering what the brand name is all about, it’ from the middle of the German word ‘besonders’, which means special. And their products are made in Germany (although their HQ is here in London).
Sond’s holistic approach to skincare means they aim to help people achieve healthy and happy skin through skincare and lifestyle advice. Which is kind of what I wanted to talk to you about. Each week for the next few weeks, I’ll be showing you a skin detox video. At the end of the series there’s be a competition to win a one-to-one Skype detox consultancy with Dr Isabel Sharkar. PLUS you can get 10% Sond products using the code OLIVIA10.
