Upgrade Your Daily Routine with SOBO Skin Care

Now that I’m officially nearing my late 20’s, I’m always looking for the best skin care products. I recently had the opportunity to try out SOBO Skin Care and found a new anti-aging product to add to my daily skin care routine – the Ultra Age Repairing Cream with Resveratrol (more on that below!).

SOBO Skin Care offers cleansers, toners, creams and serums that are made with as many natural organic ingredients as possible, but without compromising the efficacy that women expect. The products are made with organic ingredients like orange flower extract, hops and strawberry oil, combined with others proven to provide visible results like hyaluronic acid, human growth factor and ceramide 3 to effectively and gently rejuvenate skin.


Below are some of SOBO Skin Care’s popular products, including the Ultra Age Repairing Cream that I mentioned above. Read on for details on each and check out the reader discount at the end of the post.

Ultra Age Repairing Cream with Resveratrol
This anti-aging cream is an exceptionally pure multi-peptide complex with organic moisturizers. Light but intense serum formula delivers a powerful wrinkle-fighting cocktail that includes resveratrol, squalene, and hyaluronic acid to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Soothing, all-natural jojoba oil and apricot kernel oil work together to moisturize and smooth for a healthy, youthful glow and drastically improved overall appearance.

Age Smoothing Eye Serum
Moisture is the key to the youngest-looking, most velvety skin under the sun and this innovative under-eye serum really delivers and then some. Light, comfortable silicone-based moisturizing complex protects the skin around the eyes from puffiness, dryness and harmful elements that contribute to a tired appearance. A collection of essential lipids accelerates healing, promotes the production of healthy skin cells, and provides stellar protection after procedures like microdermabrasion and laser therapy. Gentle, hypoallergenic formula is perfect for all skin types.

ULTRA HGF Youth Serum
This innovative youth formula leverages the power of proven acetyl tetrapeptide-2 to help restore your skin to its former glory and help prevent signs of future aging. Skin’s critical immune functions are also boosted while the production of healthy, youthful skin cells is uniquely supported and accelerated. Light but potent formula also moisturizes dry skin and smooths for a glowing, velvety appearance.

Essential Moisturizing Cream
This rich and effective cream combines everything your skin needs to look and feel its absolute best in one convenient product. Powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatories work together to fight aging and relieve the effects of stress on skin. Rich emollients work to return dehydrated skin to the peak of smoothness and glory. A suite of vitamins, nutrients, and essential oils work together with replenishing hyaluronic acid and retinol to promote a healthful, vibrant appearance.

Manicure Tips & Giveaway from Trind Nails

I was recently introduced to hand and nail care brand Trind, which has been around for more than 25 years overseas in Europe. Their products are all made with high quality ingredients that strengthen nails and help them grow, while also conditioning both nails and cuticles – and isn’t that exactly what we’re all looking for in nail products?

Trind Nails

Trind offers lots of great nail colors, from bold reds and cool blues, to neutral nudes and grays – perfect for people like me that like to switch it up on a weekly basis. And while these nail polishes are great, Trind is really known for their nail care systems, such as the Moist & Shiny Kit shown above.

The Trind Moist & Shiny Kit will give you strong, healthy nails in just two weeks. The set comes with instructions for simple, once-a-day care that will rejuvenate your nails with a combination of strength and moisture. The Kit includes:

  • Trind Nail-Magic – gives you perfectly smooth, shiny nails
  • Trind Moisturizing Nail Balsam – contains natural moisturizers that hydrate dry, brittle nails
  • Trind Nail Repair – will strengthen your nails and prevent discoloration

Trind has some great manicure tips to share – and be sure to enter to win your own Trind Nails set by entering the giveaway below!

  • Even if your nails do not have nail polish to be removed before doing your nails, use Trind’s acetone free Extra Mild Nail Polish Remover to better prepare the nail plate. This will remove any grease and/or residue so your polish will adhere better and last much longer.
  • To push back the cuticles, first soak your hands in warm water for a few minutes. Pushing back your cuticles should never be painful.
  • While filing your nails, you can check your progress by running them down a pair of old nylons. If your nails snag on the nylons, you have some additional buffing to do.
  • Start with the Trind Moisturizing Nail Balsam for moisture and then use base coat to properly prepare the nail plate as your canvas before applying your favorite shade of polish.  A base coat also helps protect and maintain the strength of your nails.
  • Apply many thin coats of your polish rather than one thick coat. It will dry quicker and last longer.
  • Apply your polish like a professional in three strokes. Take a small amount of polish on your brush and apply one stroke down the center of your nail. Then apply strokes on the left and right. Do not use more nail polish. One brush dip should equal three strokes of application.
  • Give your nail polish at least 1 to 3 minutes drying time between coats when doing your nails at home. This will give you a nice even sheen and lasting finish.
  • Apply the top coat only after your polish is completely dry to the touch. It may be a pain to wait out the drying time but you’ll thank yourself later.
  • Chips and cracks to your nail polish are just plain annoying. Part of the preventative maintenance of your manicure is re-applying or “touching up” the top coat. It won’t make your polish last forever, but it will give you some extra mileage.
  • Don’t forget to apply base coat, nail polish, and top coat across the nail edge too.  This helps seal the ends and prevent chips.
  • You manicure doesn’t like added moisture.  Avoid soaking your hands in water if you can, and use a pair of gloves when you can’t!
