TIA recently sent me a lovely bottle of Sonäge NMF Hyaluronic Serum ($32 in the shop). After receiving the full size container I used it as directed for 5-6 weeks (which means I used the entire contents in that period of time). I’m busy, 59, the mother of 4 kids and a grandmother to one. I’ve tried many items from TIA and I’m always looking for “that” product. So, here goes.
The bottle is .5 fluid ounces and the container is plastic, which is great for travel. The pump is finicky, making squirting noises. They could really improve it but for the price of this serum, the container is suitable. After using about half the product, you will need to press the pump 3 times to get an adequate amount to cover your face, which is a dime-size or less. I used it in the morning after my shower and again if I was going out in the evening.
Sonäge goes on easily and dries rapidly. It dries completely so if you have combination, dry-oily skin like mine, you will definitely need a moisturizer. It took care of the pores in my dry areas but didn’t address the larger pores in the oily area. The product causes zero inflammation. In fact, it is rather soothing, which I attribute to the cucumber.
The ingredients include hyaluronic acid, vitamin C esters, a vitamin B complex factor and several botanical extracts that act as antioxidants. Nothing to dislike. According to product information, Sonäge is UVA protective and could be used for limited sun exposure. For example, if you aren't planning to participate in an outdoor activity or continuous sun exposure, like a baseball game or the beach or playing outdoors with your 2 year-old Grandson. I live in the California desert so after a couple of times of passive use, I found that Sonäge wasn’t protection enough and applied my MD Solar Sciences in addition to the serum.
As a woman in my late 50s, I believe Sonäge NMF wasn’t quite powerful enough for my skin. The hyaluronic acid promises plumping, yes, but my laugh lines didn’t plump much. This product would be great for 20-30s age group. I wouldn’t nix it given the price and performance, but I would categorize it accordingly: 20-30s skin. I would purchase this for my 28-year-old daughter (she has “sensitive, annoying skin,” in her exact words).
