Mugwort, Probiotics and Vitamin C: My Honest Opinion about Soko Glam’s New Skin Care Brand, Good (Skin) Days™

Is Soko Glam’s first-ever brand, Good (Skin) Days™, really worth the hype? Talia, Soko Glam’s Social Media Manager, shares her thoughts on the mugwort cream cleanser, probiotics moisturizer and vitamin C serum, and how she’s been incorporating them into her daily skin care routine.

 
As a self-professed skin care nerd, I’ve spent countless hours reading about skin care, testing new skin care, trying out products with ingredients I’ve never heard of – you name it! Even before I worked in the beauty industry, I was completely enamored. So when I heard about the launch of a new line from Soko Glam Labs™, I was excited…to say the least. A mugwort cream cleanser? Vitamin C that doesn’t oxidize as quickly? Sign me up. Still, I couldn’t help but think, do I really need more skin care products? After taking the time to give the Good (Skin) Days collection a try, the answer is yes. Let me explain. 
The Good (Skin) Days line is informed by community feedback and reviews, from avid skin care obsessives like myself…I squealed when I read the ingredient lists on some of these products. I love that the formulas are clean and not overly fragrant, and I especially love that they are cruelty free which is a big priority for me personally. 
But, let’s get to the juicy stuff – what I really thought about the products!

I was skeptical when I heard this would be a cream cleanser. Cream cleansers don’t clean that well, I thought. They’re best for sensitive, non-oily skin types, I thought. But let me tell you…I was wrong! While the formula starts out creamy, it quickly emulsifies with water into a rich foam. In fact, it is so foamy you really only need the teeniest tiniest bit, which also means that it lasts forever. They recommend a pea-size amount, and I honestly feel like that’s accurate! A little goes a long way. 
This cleanser is also extremely hydrating, and I was pleased to learn that it contains a low pH – key for keeping my oily but reactive skin calm and balanced. Lastly, I love the addition of mugwort which is a very soothing ingredient and the leaves in particular, which gently exfoliate. It’s also such a pretty shade of green – which is all natural and comes from the mugwort! At $16, this is absolutely my new favorite cleanser.
Much like my love for low pH cleansers, I am equally (if not more!) devoted to gel-cream textured moisturizers – they’re light but can always be layered for additional hydration, and work particularly well in the summer under SPF.  In terms of texture, On The Bright Side falls somewhere between Then I Met You’s Calming Tide Gel Cream (very lightweight, more like a serum) and the SkinRX Lab MadeCera Cream (a more traditional cream) – perfectly light, but substantial enough to keep skin hydrated all day long. I also love that it comes in a tube rather than a jar – sanitary! 
The key ingredient, rice ferment filtrate, is one of my favorites for gradually softening and brightening the skin. I also love that it has peptides, lots of humectants, and probiotics – all of which contribute to more plump and balanced skin. I currently use this moisturizer morning and night and – hot tip –  in the evening I actually love to layer it on top of Then I Met You’s Calming Tide Gel Cream as (kind of) a DIY sleeping pack. Trust me on this one. 
Now for the product that everyone’s been waiting for: C’s The Day, a vitamin C serum to rival even some of the most expensive serums I’ve tried (…and I’ve tried a lot). I love that this serum contains 10% pure vitamin C (10-15% is optimal depending on the formula), in addition to other antioxidants I know and love like vitamin E, mushroom and ginseng extracts. In terms of texture, it’s lightweight and hydrating but doesn’t feel tacky – many vitamin C serums I’ve tried leave a sticky film that I am…not about. I did feel a slight tingle when I applied it to my skin, but it didn’t last long and I experienced zero irritation. 
Arguably my favorite part about this serum is that it doesn’t need to be kept in the fridge and it does not oxidize quickly – I’ve had it for a couple months now and it looks and feels the same as when I first got it. As with all vitamin C serums, you still want to store it in a cool, dark spot away from direct sunlight, but overall – it’s much easier to keep on hand without oxidizing than many past serums I’ve tried.
