Let’s talk skin (SVR Infinity)

I know, I know. We all try to always be “clean” and as religious with skin care as possible. But sometimes, life does not permit it. So, we have to compensate and actually look for products that will work for us. Sometimes, it will take a bit of making mistakes with this one and that one, but eventually, you will get there.

As for me, I get lazy with skin care very often. Recently though, I had really bad breakouts on my cheeks, and I knew it was like my skin was begging me to stop being too busy about other things and go back to being a skin care nerd.

So, I would like to introduce to you something that is now dear to my heart: SVR Infinity. A little backstory. They started out as Sofia Veronica Relosa’s Beauty and Wellness back in 2009. In 2013, with its growing number of clients, business name was changed to SVR Infinity Trading. They actually started as one of the first online cosmetic company that has FDA Approval. Their flag items are Sofia’s Glutathione soap with Kojic and Collagen and Sofia’s Face and Body Cream. And, hear this, they are the first online skin care shop that has products for both male and female.

Tada. There you go.

So… A couple of months ago, they sent me some of their products: Sofia’s Glutathione Soap with Kojic and Collagen and Sofia’s Acne Control and Lightening Toner. I was pretty busy recently, so I never really got to try them out until around three weeks ago. Lo and behold, my skin started improving. I KID YOU NOT, really. Like.. Just try it though.

The soap works It is a non-drying and mild whitening soap that helps natural development of skin to aid in reducing wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots and uneven skin tone. Okay, so the “mild” whitening is important, because I do not want to look like Casper the friendly ghost. The part where it reduces wrinkles and dark spots? Works like magic. It does need a few days for you to see the difference, but it works. My freckles are actually lighter now, it’s weird.

And there’s the toner. It is made for sensitive (ME) and acne prone skin (ALSO ME). Sofia’s Acne Control Ligtening Toner is made to address those stubborn pimples by keeping it hydrated but without irritating skin. What I love most about it is that the toner is water based and 0% alcohol. So you don’t have to worry about the sting or anything like that. I use it every morning and at night, and it works wonders.
