So, we all know that the calendar says Spring is here. But, some of us still have snow and me, well, we have rain and hail down pours! First I wanted Spring, but now I just want Summer! No sun = pale skin, right? WRONG! It does not have to be like that and thanks to Sothys, mine is not!
Sothys is a legendary skin care company that offers a luxurious product line that brings out the warm tones in your skin. Sothys’ mission in creating their new products was to create a simple approach to year-round healthy color. The new product line is great! I was sent the Progressive Sunny Glow Lotion and the Cellu-guard® Complex.
I really like to try out new sunless tanners, heck, I was sure I had tried them all already, but I am always pleasantly surprised that I have not 🙂 The Progressive Sunny Glow Lotion is a light, airy lotion that gradually makes you tan with each application. The great thing about this lotion is the scent, I love it. It reminds me of vanilla sugar, mmmmm! The gradual tanner goes on smoothly and blends into my skin effortlessly. Within two days, after applying it both nights, my body was a bit tanner. It was light though. So I decided for a few more days. After 4 days, my whole body definitely had a sun kissed look to it. The scent of the lotion, when it “turns”, sort of changed too, but not like some others I have tried. This one is more definitely bearable! After I stopped using it, it took about a week until it was gone. It faded like a natural tan. The Cellu-guard, I have to say, I did not really “know” what it was. I searched the packaging and the paper inside and just did not really understand, still, what it was for. So, I looked on Sothys site and now I guess I know 🙂 It is a dual tissue protection that protects collagen fibers and the elastin of the skin and limits the inflammatory process. It also offers triple protection to the cell membranes, DNA and preserves proteins.So, in other words, it is a skin protectant. It is a heavier lotion then the Sunless Tanner. Way more moisturizing and needs to be rubbed a bit into your skin, because of this. I tried it all over my body. The place I did not like it was on my hands. It is weird feeling on the palms of my hands and I can’t stand anything different feeling on my hands, I am so picky! But everywhere else on my body, it was very moisturizing. I did not use this on my face because I am scared it might make me break out. This product has no scent and is supposed to be very good for your skin.
About Sothys (taken from the Press Release):
In 1946, Sothys was a beauty institute in Paris , where a list of exclusive customers enjoyed fine French products created by Dr. Hotz, a medical biologist. Sothys was acquired by the Mas family in 1966 and by 1970 Sothys had entered the US market under the direction of esthetician Christian Garces. Sothys became an instant hit for estheticians looking for a professional, results- oriented product line. Over two decades later, it continues to be the forerunner in the beauty industry. Much of Sothys’ success is due to its focus on continuous, complementary education to estheticians and therapists. At the Sothys Institute in Miami , and at regional Sothys offices throughout the US , classes are offered, with topics ranging from hands-on body workshops to cosmetic chemistry.
