There are products you like, products that are okay, and products you really enjoy using. The latter was the surprise I got from trying the products from Sole Toscana. Natural, organic and cruelty-free, their skincare products are based on artisanal Italian beauty recipes and practice the seed-to-skin approach.
Their 4-Step Skincare Routine promises to help support natural contours, elasticity and tone daily, while deeply moisturizing, repairing, and protecting skin. These products also contain aloe extract and organic Italian olive essence from the brand’s organic farm in the Italian countryside, as well as a botanical hyaluronic acid to naturally enrich, hydrate and repair the skin.
The Rosewater Wellspring Cleanser is an aloe gel-based cleanser that cleanses and removes makeup using skin-tightening rosewater, brightening rosehip and pore-de-clogging natural salicylic acid. This #gelcleanser feels relaxing when massaged onto the skin. It helps remove excess oil and impurities gently. It might be a bit stripping for dry skin but my #oilyskin likes it. It leaves my skin dry but not tight, cleansed without any residue left behind.
The Neroli Radiance Serum aims to lighten dark spots, smooth skin, and enhance glow using vitamin c, botanical hyaluronan, and neroli. This #serum comes in a light pink color and a watery texture that my oily skin loves. It dries down in a satiny texture and leaves my skin smooth and bouncy after each application. I honestly underestimated this one. I was surprised to find out that in just a week of using this, there is a huge difference in my skin in terms of hydration and brightness. This, combined with my other serums, hydrated my skin so effectively that my oiliness looks more glowy than yucky.
The Espresso Bright Eyes Cream works to banish wrinkles and reduce the appearance of dark circles using espresso extract, pomegranate, and grapeseed. The texture of the eye cream is similar to the serum but feels less watery. I honestly didn’t see its lightening effects but it helps brighten, moisturize, and depuff my under eyes. I like using this in the morning as it has a cooling sensation and it sinks in quickly so it doesn’t take time from my fast get-ready routine.
The Rosehip & Calendula Triple Cream is designed to support natural contours, elasticity and tone, while deeply moisturizing and repairing using calendula, rosehip, and jojoba. This #moisturizer has a battered watery dough texture but spreads really thinly on the skin. It almost feels watery as I massage it. It leaves my skin plump and moisturized after every application. However, it makes my face oily when I wake up in the morning.
The products in this 4-step routine offered my skin hydration and moisture while leaving my skin bright, clear, and glowing. They are some of the most gentle products that I’ve tried that brought results to my usually resistant skin. I have not experienced any irritation or blemishes since I used this. I honestly think these products work so well with my oily skin and all the products that I’m using. They are a great support to my actives and I believe that these would also bring great results to other skin types. I am glad I stumbled upon these products, honestly.
