I grew up in Scandinavia where the summers were short, and you often couldn’t even count on the weather being nice during the summer holidays. So when the sun was finally out, so were we – all day – soaking up the sun, enjoying feeling it warm up our bodies and kiss our cheeks. Back then, there were simply just as much as much awareness of being sun-smart as there are today. Decades later, and sun damage is starting to appear, and you regret these things, but what do you do. You live and you learn. So when I was asked to trial the *Sincare Sun Goddess, I happily accepted, here are my thoughts;

What They Say:

Worship the Gods of Skin Repair. "What I want is to travel back in time and apply Factor 30 sun block
every single day."

Exposure to the sun is the number one cause of premature aging and skin damage. If you live in a sun rich environment, have sun worshipped in your youth, go skiing, sunbathe on holiday or just walk to the mailbox each day, you have probably been exposed to the damaging effects of the sun. Used daily Sun Goddess™ helps to address the effects of sun damage.

RRP: $80 (50ml) – Available from Sincare

What I Say:

This serum is a very unique serum. Most other serums address a range of anti-ageing concerns from evening out the skintone, plumbing out fine lines, etc, but this serum is specifically targeted to your main concern and cause, in this case, correcting the damage caused by worshipping the sun. In the Sincare range there are also eight other products including Sugar Hit, Smokers Secret and Party Girl, as well as Sleep Doctor which I will also be reviewing shortly, so stay tuned.

Sincare’s reasoning for this is that lifestyle can play a significant role in how we age, and consequently we should not just use products for our age group, but also for our lifestyle, and they believe that you will see increased results by using a product that addresses both.
The Sincare Sun Goddess contains cosmeceutical ingredient Phytosphingosine, which has been tested on photo-aged skin, and proven to help increasing collagen synthesis and assists with reinforcing the dermal-epidermal junction - a must have for improving sun damaged skin.

The serum come packaged in a heavy looking frosted glass pump bottle that screams luxe. And I love, as I always say, that it comes with a pump as it makes it so easy and fuss free to use. The slightly peachy tinged cream has a lovely floral scent – some may find it a little strong, but as I really like it, I think it is really lovely.

So how how did the serum perform after using it for about a month?

The serum is quite moisturising and absorbs quickly into the skin, leaving the skin feeling incredibly soft and moisturised and with a nice matte feeling. All the experts say to use a moisturiser on top of your serum to seal in the goodness, but having combination skin, there were simply days were I felt my skin didn’t need it, and I was afraid of drowning it, and potentially causing it to get congested and breakout.

And after using it for a month, I am pleased to say that I feel my skin is looking more even, luminous and glowing. Some minor pigmentation has slightly minimised, but larger spots and clusters are still prominent, but I also did not expect those to vanish over night as in the end of the day, as I doubt that any cream could correct years of sun damage. And especially in such a short period of time. Unfortunately. But in saying that, I enjoy using the serum, and love how lovely it makes my skin feel and look more even and with such a nice glow – and combined with being a little more sun smart, this serum certainly a great help.

  1. Sleep Doctor sounds like it would be more up my alley.
