Hello everyone, i’m back with an update on the Sothys 3D Hydrating launch event that i’ve attended one month ago. What’s the importance of hydration you might ask? Dehydrated skin is actually the root cause of all your skin related concerns like aging and sensitive skin.
If you have oily / sensitive skin, you will need to keep your skin well moisturized so that it won’t give the brain the signal to produce more oil to protect it which will in turn leads to breakout. When skin lacks moisture, it will turn dry and cause irritation (Hence the sensitive skin). If you have normal skin type, it is important to maintain the healthiness of skin types with moisture. If you have dry skin, you will need intensive moisture to restore suppleness and prevent premature aging.
For myself and many others, we spent long hours in air-conditioned environment hence we cannot run away from dry and dehydrated skin problems. As mentioned earlier, a lot of skin issues surfaced due to skin being too dry so the undeniable truth is that hydration is important for all skin types! As such, Sothys Advanced Research Team has developed a 3-dimensional hydrating solution (Hydra 3HA) to restore hydration for a long-lasting beauty. This high performance hydrating solution to RESTORE, REGENERATE, REACTIVATE your skin for plump and smooth complexion.
Well-moisturized skin appears visibly younger and stands up better to the test of time. Driven by the latest advanced research discoveries on its exclusive ingredient, 1055 boletus extract, Sothys is now reinventing its hydration programme with a triple hyaluronic acid. This new programme is a concentration of efficiency at the cutting edge of innovation, including an Intensive treatment and home care products!

Now you can preserved your skin’s radiance and youthfulness daily at the comfort of your home.

Meanwhile, here’s some photos which i have taken at the launch event and enjoy them before i go into details with my review of the serum.
As mentioned in earlier blog post, my skin was badly dehydrated after a skin analysis done during my facial. Hence, the beautician has told me to use more hydrating products and i will be putting the Intensive Hydrating Serum to the test! To be frank, i’m not using moisturizer regularly as i’m worried that it will be too rich for my sensitive / easily clogged skin. Hence, i was told to use serum instead as texture will be lighter so there’s nothing much for me to worry about. The Intensive Hydrating Serum is housed in a pump dispenser bottle (more hygienic) and 1-2 pumps are sufficient for my entire face. It has a light lotion-like texture and it smells really divine (Therapeutic floral scent)! It gets absorbed into my skin very fast without leaving behind any heavy / sticky sensation. My skin feels refreshed, softer and less tight instantly! Have been using it on a daily basis at night (so you can see how much i love it)! As you know, i have combination sensitive skin and like how the serum treats the dry part of my skin, doesn’t add to skin’s oiliness and doesn’t cause any additional breakouts. When i went for my recent facial, my beautician also commented that my skin is much more healthier and hydrated! Only down side is the cost but i feel that a little goes a long way so one bottle should be able to last me for at least 3 months. 🙂
Hydra3Ha Intensive Hydrating Serum retails @ $185 (50ml)
