1. Sothys Clarifying Corrector Serum, 1.0 oz for $51.00
I have a thing about green products. Not “green” as in organic, but green as in the color. No. It is not because of Kermit the Frog. I do like money. But, I also love the idea of a lush, green forest. It also reminds me of the sea for some reason too. Green is just a powerful nature infused color that breathes vitality. But, I do like money. 🙂
I have been interested in trying out the Sothys line for a while, but never got around to it until this summer. I was actually going to buy the Sothys Desquaccrem but decided against it. I wanted impact with my dollars. A gommage cleanser wasn’t going to cut it at that price, but it does have a lot of nice reviews. So, eventually I may get to it.
The serum is supposed to clear acne breakouts with a concentrated serum of tea tree oil and salicylic acid. I, also, like that it has niacinamide and licorice root extract (to improve discoloration). I originally started applying directly on to skin but I did not like the way it felt. It feels drying (alcohol) and kind of sticky. So I started mixing it with moisturizers and essential oils. I know this is a clarifier but it will not really get rid of your acne. It will clear up oil and debris from your pores, but it will not kill a zit. I do not believe this is a repurchase. This reminds me of a less pleasant version of Yonka Juvenil, which smells like a deep forest and feels wonderful on my skin. Juvenil was super expensive the way I was using it. I can’t afford it at $54.00 for 0.5 ounces. It is a pure liquid and I can clear a bottle in about two weeks with a lot of restraint. I just want to inhale the stuff.
One more thing. The liquid inside can spill out of closed cap if the bottle is sideways. Why would I have this bottle sideways you ask? Well, I stuff it in my gym kit. So it spills a little green liquid inside the cap….This is not a repurchase.
Too bad, because I loved the fact that this was green. I am not kidding, I did.
