Part of the reason I was invited to Arkansas last month was so I could be introduced to an organic skin care line called Sophyto® (so-FY-toe).  The Sam’s Club Bloggers were invited to a beautiful executive home where we got to meet the creator of Sophyto and hear all about her product.  As a no-poo,  “wannabe crunchy” mom, I was really interested in what she had to say.

Inspired by nature and backed by science, SOPHYTO® is a breakthrough line of professional anti-aging skincare products previously only available through professional locations.

By working with your skin to naturally optimize pH levels and moisture content, SOPHYTO® helps all skin types to look and feel healthier and more radiant. Every eco-friendly product has been developed by green chemists to contain optimal levels of certified organic botanical ingredients. And the entire SOPHYTO® line is guaranteed to be free from artificial fragrance, colors and fillers, including parabens and processed nutrients.

I had a great time meeting the creator, Karen Sinclair Drake, who does NOT look like a woman in her 50’s!  She is beautiful and smart and is a self-proclaimed science geek.  She worked hand in hand with chemists and doctors to create  Sophyto after she became frustrated with her own skin issues.  When Sophyto launched in 2008, it was welcomed by the American Academy of Dermatologists, Neurologists, Integrative Doctors and Estheticians.  Since then, it has only been available in Dermatology offices and leading Spas.

But Karen’s vision was to have her skin care line available to everyone and she is thrilled to launch Sophyto at Sam’s Club.

Natural Skin Care

I’ve been using the Sophyto Phytotherapy Anti-Aging Care Kit for 3 weeks now.  This kit contains pH optimizing restorative toner, anti-aging antioxidant serum and marine peptide brightening treatment.  Up until now, if you had purchased these items separately in a dermatology office. they would have cost you around $90.00.  At Sam’s Club, they only cost $34.98!  This is great, affordable skin care.

In addition to the Phytotherapy Anti-Aging kit, I have been using the Purifying Silken Cleanser which removes all my make up and skin impurities.  The cleanser retails at Sam’s Club for $14.98 for a twin pack.

So everything I need to take care of my skin for 30-60 days (depending on how heavy you use the cleansers) costs less than $50.00.  I was spending $30 on cleanser alone with another anti-aging brand!  And it wasn’t “natural” either, I couldn’t even pronounce half of the ingredients.

Sophyto Demonstration

Check out my demo.  You know you want to see me without makeup (and don’t you dare laugh at me since I hate being on video and totally look like a dork!).

Thoughts on Sophyto

I really like this skin care line. My face doesn’t tingle when I’m done using it.  My eyes don’t hurt because I’ve had to scrub my make up off.  My eyes don’t sting from using harsh chemicals on them.  My skin feels clean and balanced.  I’m really happy that I don’t have any crazy science experiments on my face.  Just natural plant products, things right from the earth.

I have had a few breakouts, but I think that’s pretty normal when you change skin care routines.  But by breakout, it’s been like 3 little pimples (in 3 weeks).  Nothing life shattering.

I can’t really say if I look younger or not.  Maybe I should have taken a before and after picture?  The packaging does say it can take 12 weeks to fully see results, so perhaps if I’m feeling brave I will do another video in 12 weeks and then we can compare.

Sophyto is currently available in 150 Sam’s Club stores.  You can go online or call your local club to see if your club is one of them.  The 150 clubs that do carry it now will be doing demo’s twice a week until the end of the year.  If your club does not have it yet, it can be ordered online with free shipping until the end of the year!

Sam’s Club is currently offering 15-week club memberships for only $15.00!  This is great for the upcoming holidays.  The offer is good in club only until October 10th, so hurry! This could be your chance to use Sam’s Club during the holidays as well as try out Syphoto at the great club store prices!
