About Sofia

I’m happy to say that skincare is my hobby and the main subject of my job! There’s more cosmetic love here, as I’m just as passionate about makeup and perfumes. Having dry skin and rosacea, I’ve got to be careful choosing my skincare. When choosing products, my preference goes for sustainable brands with plant-based ingredients. As long as face products are formulated for sensitive skin, I love experimenting new textures and formulas–there’s no rosacea stopping me!
