What I Say:

Sormé (pronounced saw-may) is an American brand and the name is the Egyptian name for the natural black ‘Kohl’ substance used by queens and princesses to enhance their eyes; ‘the mirror of the soul.’ Gotta love a bit of history!

The brand was created over two decades ago in connection with makeup artists to combine advanced anti-aging technology with makeup using active plant botanicals, natural minerals, healing vitamins and clinically proven peptides to help protect and improve your skin as rich colour pigments enhance your natural beauty.

I have very sensitive eyes that easily water, so trying out a new mascara always concerns me as any small drop of particles or too much fragrance is enough to irritate my eyes for hours! So I love that the Sormé Extreme Volumising Mascara is a very gentle formula that is even suited for those wearing contact lenses. Many mascaras dry out or damage lashes, but not the Sormé mascara thanks to containing among others Vitamin E, Aloe Vera & Hyaluronic Acid help care for your lashes, strengthening and conditioning them while you wear it. The large soft brush easily helps coat and define every single lash, even the tiniest ones, while it separates them nicely too without any clumping. For a simple daytime look, which I seem to sport most days as a stay-at-home mum, one coat is sufficient, but of course, an extra coat or two does always provide even more volume and length, leaving you with thick lashes.

And I love that regardless of how many coats you apply, this mascara does not make your lashes feel stiff or uncomfortable. As promised it is smudge and smear resistant, and does stay put all day, even surviving a humid day.

As the name suggests, the Sormé Treat & Tint Skin Perfecting BB Cream is not just a BB Cream, it is also caring and treating the skin at the same time. It contains among others Argan Oil to provide the skin with nutrients without clogging up the skin, as well as botanicals for a healthy skin.

The BB Cream also comes with SPF30 which is fantastic under the harsh Australian sun. It promises luminosity, and even skin tone. The pearlescent cream and it provides the skin with a light coverage that does even out minor pigmentation, redness and blemishes, leaving the skin with a lovely luminous and healthy glow, without too much shimmer. It does even out my skin tone a bit, but unfortunately I have increasing pigmentation, which is not helped by being pregnant, as well as scarring from past acne, and unfortunately the Treat & Tint Skin Perfecting BB Cream fails to cover this up, but in saying that, I also didn’t expect it to, as BB Creams never provide you with a full coverage. But that’s also why concealers were invented!

The cream feels very comfortable and very moisturising on the skin, and unfortunately I do feel that it is a little too moisturising, especially on the hot and humid days, as I feel my face looks and feels very greasy and shiny by the early afternoon. The BB Cream does stay put longer, and also nicer when I use either the Sormé Fresh Start Anti-Ageing Under Foundation Makeup Enhancer or the Fresh Start Oil-Free Anti-Ageing Under Foundation Makeup Enhancer first. The Oil-Free version is definitely better or my skin type, especially during summer, as it contains oil-blotting ingredients to help make combat shine while making diminishing the look of discolourations and the size of pores, so perfect for combination and oily skin types. The Fresh Start Anti-Ageing Under Foundation Makeup Enhancer, on the other hand, is better suited to normal, dry and mature skin types, containing vitamins A, E and E to help reduce the depth of lines and wrinkles.

Overall I really like the healthy glowing look this BB Cream gives my skin, and in spite of the light coverage, it is perfect for casual days when you don’t want to be too made up, and I love that it contains SPF30 to protect my skin from the harsh sun. But unfortunately my skin is just getting oilier during the summer months, so consequently it is not staying put for as long as I like during the day, and hence an ideal match. But I will definitely give it another go come winter when my skin tends to become more dry.

Finally, the Sormé LipThick Super Plumping Gloss is a lipgloss that contains peptides to help stimulate collagen production to increase the fullness of the lips, as well as among others vitamins A, C and K and aloe vera for smooth soft lips. Sormé recommends using the lipgloss 3 times a day for 7 days and then once a day thereafter for fuller, smoother lips.

The lipgloss has a minty scent, which reminds me a little of toothpaste, and once on the lips, it also has a slightly cooling and tingling sensation, which I quite like. The gloss does, on application make your lips seem fuller, which I think is mainly due to the shimmering gloss effect. But I am yet to see any permanent plumping effect or fuller lips, but in saying that, I also haven’t been using the lipgloss three times a day for a full week – simply because as a stay at home mum, I have several days during the week where I go completely makeup free.

Regardless, the lipgloss feels quite lovely on the lips, without feeling sticky or tacky. And you can feel its moisturising properties, and even once the lipgloss has worn off after a few hours, your lips remain soft. I tried the shade Gloss Heaven, which is a warm medium pink shade. It has a fairly good colour payoff, and a high gloss shimmering effect, the perfect shade for everyday use. There are a massive 16 colours as well as a clear in the range, and I certainly wouldn’t mind picking up a few more shades! 

Overall, I am quite impressed with these products, and certainly wouldn't hesitate adding more to my collection. I love that they are 'treatment' cosmetics, and hence works to care for the skin as you wear the products.

Have you ever heard of Sorme Treatment Cosmetics? Tried any of the products?
