It has been a hectic year for me travelling around and pursuing back my passion for life.
Thus, I was able to squeeze out some part of myself to participate in the exciting SOTHYS PARIS products event.
We were invited to SOTHYS event in Singapore and received some generous goodie bags to review the Cosmeceutic Care products range.

Products and Treatments – What is the rave about their Cosmeceutic Care (Hydradvance™)?
Inspired by GENE science, SOTHYS’ advance research in cosmetogenomics (Science of genes applied to cosmetic science) have ingeniously created HYDRADVANCE™ COSMECEUTIC PROGRAMME using Sothys’ patented H2CR® Cosmeceutic Complex to boost the healthy cells and 1055 Boletus Extract to stimulate the genes to restore skin’s ability to REHYDRATE itself.
Combined with other active ingredients, 1055 Boletus Extract acts on 2 main functions to restore the skin’s ability to re-hydrate itself:
Optimizing Hydric Flows:
Storing sufficient water in the dermis layer that acts as a water reservoir for the skin.
Regulating water circulation which travels from the dermis to the epidermis through proper and functional channels.
Retaining water that reaches the epidermis layer to achieve a well-hydrated skin.
Reconstituting the Barrier Function:
Reactivating and improving individual functions of the skin’s protective layer.
Providing optimal protection from oxidative stress.
Restoring cell communication to optimize and sustains the skin’s function.

Reviews and Effectiveness of the products tried and tested personally?
Hydradvance™ Light Cream
After using it in the mornings and before bedtime for 2 weeks, my skin definitely feels more hydrated with less laugh lines around the mouth and eyes area. Skin feels firmer with more moisture “implanted” in the skin. In my opinion, I would recommend Hydradvance Light Hydrating Cream for oily and combination skin like myself. Rating: 5/5. One of my favourite lightweight moisturer so far.
Especially good for days when you are having a late night out definitely. Make me looks fresh and dewy the next morning as if I had a full night of beauty rest.
I recommend alternating this hydrating mask with a clay mask twice weekly for oily and combination skin to keep blemishes at bay whilst keeping skin resilient and hydrated.
