Sonage is a new to me brand. A “non-toxic” and cruelty free natural skincare brand. A little about Sonage:
Our successful 20+ years as a spa-grade brand is rooted in European skincare tradition with a focus on premium, luxury natural ingredients. Working with top scientists in Europe and Los Angeles, we balance the best in modern skincare science with the amazing healing powers of Mother Nature. We manufacture in small batches every ninety days so we can quickly incorporate new research and best practices into our products. With over two decades experience, we’ve perfected our revolutionary formulas using botanicals, active plant enzymes and pure essential oils (instead of harsh chemicals) to deliver beautiful, healthy and radiant results.
I will admit I had never heard of them before them contacting me. I went to their website and looked around at their products. They seemed good and like they had some items I would ultimately be interested in. I was sent the Natural Glow Pretty Pack to play with. Details per Sonage:

The Glycolic Peel Pads are round pads with a waffle pattern on them. I find the texture a bit rough for my skin. I prefer a smoother pad in general. The pads tingle a bit as with a lot of glycolic acid solutions. There’s only natural ingredients in the pads and no alcohol, which is always hard to find in pads, so that’s a bonus. I tend to prefer a glycolic/lactic/salicylic or mix of acids in a pad. I’m not using straight glycolic acid myself as much as I used to be. IT used to be my go to for smooth skin. I think they’re an effective glycolic acid pad, I just tend to prefer a mixed acid formulation and a smoother pad. Otherwise they are alcohol free and a good glycolic pad in general.
The Vitality Nourishing Oil is a thin textured facial oil. It absorbs quickly and has a dry oil feel. Argan and Marula are the main base oils then you have the essential oils. I will say I love the lightweight texture. However, this is very heavily scented in essential oils. More than I prefer. Now that’s in a green essential oil way, meaning it’s a not sweet but more green or almost medicinal scent. I don’t know if it’s the cypress or the rosemary but it has an almost mint like green scent. I actually really like it to relax. I apply it on my arms and neck and breathe deep for a relaxing effect. Whether or not you can use this one your face depends how sensitive you are to heavily scented essential oils products.
The mask is made with Maqui berries which are a powerful antioxidant, think Skin Owls new stuff. It’s a creamy mask that dries down to a comfortable finish. It does have this fun pearl like finish as well and obviously it smells like berries. This gives a firming and hydrating effect to the skin. This was my favorite item out of the set and it seems it’s one of Sonage’s best sellers. With good reason. From what I understand the Sonage Natural Glow Pretty Pack is limited edition for the holidays and you can get it HERE.
While not every item worked for me in this pack I’m sure they will give glowing skin to a number of people. I’m happy I discovered Sonage as they have some other natural skincare products I have my eye on for the future.
