I’ve tried a lot of skincare in my day. Its a passion of mine that goes way back to my years in Dermatology sales…. I love trying different brands and products and seeing what’s out there! My latest skincare is perhaps the COOLEST brand I’ve ever tried; plus, my skin is looking fantastic while using it. It’s called Somebody, and it is women-owned (1/3 of the team Latina), cruelty-free, with eco-aware packaging. I’ll get into the exact products I’m using, in the order I use them, below, but FYI they did give us a discount code: Fashionveggie will get you 20% off! Woohoo!
- Face Wash. Has Provitamin B5 (maximizes skin’s hydration + improves skin’s elasticity and softness). Glycolic Acid (lightly exfoliates, helps boost collagen production). It smells very subtly refreshing, it doesn’t strip your face but leaves it feeling very clean (this is a hard balance to strike, in my experience), and the bottle is made from recycled plastic!
- Electric Daisy Exfoliant (ONLY 1-2X PER WEEK). Contains Electric Daisy (aka Buzz Button) which is an edible flower that has historically been used as mouth numbing agent, but when used in skincare it has a noticeable brightening and tightening effect! SO COOL). Also contains Volcanic Sand, AHA fruit acids (improve appearance of skin texture), & glycolic acid to stimulate collagen production.
- Electric Daisy Serum. Contains Electric Daisy to tighten; hyaluronic acid to keep skin plump and dewy and help it retain water; and Vitamin C to promote collagen production.
- Face Moisturizer. THIS IS A STEAL OF A PRODUCT, because it contains HPR (Hydroxypinacolone Retionate) which is a cruelty-free/vegan Vitamin A that is as effective as other retinoids to treat fine lines, but is more gentle on the skin (aka: less side effects!). It’s only $32 compared with most Vitamin A creams out there, which are much more spendy! Gentle enough to use daily, and packaged in a recycled plastic bottle.
Thats it for my daily lineup! I also have the Electric Daisy Face Mask, which I highly recommend for use as-needed/as-desired. It contains Reishi mushrooms to penetrate deeply into your skin to plump and nourish; Squalane to help balance oil levels; Fruit extracts to help enhance elasticity & reduce hyperpigmentation; and Electric Daisy to tighten!
I also want to mention that the packaging is super cute and will look adorbs on your counter! And I ALSO want to mention that this is a really inclusive brand with no toxic beauty standard type of marketing…. LOVE to see it.
I give the Somebody skincare line a 10 of 10, and after thoroughly testing them out and deciding that I’m SOLD, I’m excited to be partnering with them in the coming months. Reminder that we have code FASHIONVEGGIE for 20% discount, so I hope that helps!
xx love y’all! Be well and don’t forget to add sunscreen!
