Introducing: SOBO Skin Care! (Featuring Ultra HGF Youth Serum + Coupon!)


While I tend to have my head buried deep in the Korean Skincare world, I am always tempted to try out new and interesting skincare lines that wouldn't necessarily fall into the K-Beauty category. While I love beauty products and makeup in general, I know how important it is to have really great skin to go along with it. For most of my life, I used little more than a makeup cleansing wipe before I'd go to bed. I packed on the makeup and spent hours perfecting my liquid liner techniques, but couldn't be bothered with keeping my skin healthy. Obviously that has all changed now, and I just can't get enough skincare!

SOBO Skin Care is a new line of skincare products that uses a mix of natural and organic ingredients along with powerhouse ingredients that really boost your skins natural beauty.
From SOBO Skin Care:
SOBO Skin Care is a new indie brand of natural skin care products. What makes SOBO shine among other indie brands is how our patented formulas utilize both natural organic ingredients as well as other powerful ingredients to achieve fantastic results for many women. Our propriety blends of Ceramides, Hyaluronic Acid, HGF, Tetrapeptides and various antioxidants like Resveratrol combine to renew and rejuvenate skin. And we formulated our products to accomplish this without the use of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, GMO's, triclosan, synthetic dyes or artificial fragrances. All of this makes our products wonderfully gentle on skin.
I love seeing more skincare companies come out that don't add in all those harsh chemicals and ingredients. I remember growing up, all I really had around my house was that awful St. Ives Apricot scrub and some Dove Soap. I had no idea about all the bad things that could be lurking in my products, so it's nice to see more and more companies be more proactive in creating healthy skin care.

SOBO Skin Care has a line that contains a cleanser, toner, moisturizing cream, age repairing cream, youth serum, and eye serum. So while this is more western-based skincare, it does cover a lot of the bases that my beloved Korean skincare would.

The product I was asked to review from the line, is the ULTRA HGF Youth Serum.

From SOBO Skincare:
Treat your skin to the powerful anti-aging benefits of this exceptionally pure multi-peptide complex with organic moisturizers. Light but intense serum formula delivers a powerful wrinkle-fighting cocktail that includes resveratrol, squalene, and hyaluronic acid to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by up to 50% within just 28 days. Soothing, all-natural jojoba oil and apricot kernel oil work together to moisturize and smooth for a healthy, youthful glow and drastically improved overall appearance.

What It Does: Works to noticeably reduce the appearance, volume, and depth of wrinkles. Visibly minimizes the effects of aging and acts to soften the texture of skin for a younger, healthier look.

Key Ingredients: Contains all-natural resveratrol complex, a powerful purifier and antioxidant. Also contains a full suite of miracle peptides including Hexapeptide-8 and Pentapeptide-18, as well as all-natural moisturizers like jojoba, apricot kernel oil, and chinensis seed oil.


I received a sample size of this youth serum, but it was more than enough to get a good idea of what I thought of it. I've been using it for about a week now and there still seems to be way more than enough left to continue using it for awhile.
This sample is 0.16oz, and the full size is 1oz. I'm guessing the full size will last a very long time! The sample, as well as the full size, both have easy-to-use pumps to distribute exactly the amount of product you need.
This definitely feels like a serum, however it's not oily or heavy. It almost has the consistency of a thick water, if that makes sense! It doesn't have much of a fragrance to speak of, and is incredibly easy to massage into the skin. It absorbs very quickly, and feels very moisturizing.
It's a bit hard to give feedback on long-term use, or even how effective it is on wrinkles, unfortunately. I only have very minimal fine lines (the beginning of crows feet, eep!) around my eyes, so while this serum didn't have any visible effect on my fine lines, I did find it to be incredibly moisturizing, without making my oily/combo skin worse. I could feel that my skin was very soft and smooth, and did seem to have a brighter appearance! I did of course, include this serum into my typical Korean skincare routine, which includes a lot of moisturizing products, but I had no adverse reactions to this product. I love that it's loaded with great ingredients that my skin already loves. I'm going to continue including this in my routine until it runs out, because I'm interested to see the long-term results.
