The Japanese brand Sofina has launched their new line Jenne over Asia a few weeks ago.
Sofina Jenne is a new skin care series developed specifically for women in their 20s! Awesome! No more teenager’s acne skin care products, or mom’s anti-aging cream! I am so glad they had created a skin care collection targeted to women in this age group, which, like I said, could be an awesome age to buy the right products out there.

A little bit about Sofina and Jenne—
since its launch in 1982, Sofina has pursued dermatological research, and, based on knowledge and expertise accumulated, the brand has proposed skin care that supports skin as it changes according to age.

So the Sofina Jenne line actually proposes themselves as the skin care most appropriate for skin properties in the 20s with the concept “Beautifying your skin in the 20s more than ever before.”


pretty packaging. it’s so adorable!

They think women in their 20s, who are sensitive to changes in their skin, are highly conscious of unstable skin conditions and worry about their skin becoming rough and dry. Moreover, skin in the 20s features a fast cornification cycle and increased moisture evaporation, with the result that moisture in the skin is easily lost. Dry skin with insufficient hydration tends to be deficient in ceramide, which retains moisture in the corneum, and is easily affected by external stimuli. On the other hand, though individual cases differ, due to active sebaceous glands, skin in the 20s generally has high sebum content. (according to Kao’s survey, yes! me!)

The products in the jenne collection retains ceramide, which tends to be insufficient in the inner skin, and promotes its functionality, leading to a fresh skin that retains moisture. The Sofina Jenne Jelly Moisturizer, which is the focus product of the series, employs updated ceramide technology. With no greasy touch and containing oil-free ingredients, this product is supposed to supply hydration more effective than that what a cream does!

Sounds great, right? Well, I was selected as one of the beauty blogger to try the two focus products out from this collection two weeks ago! So I get to review them and talk more about it to you guys:) Thank to Sofina and the beauty web site I go to with this provided opportunity, I really appreciate it. So here you go, for the one who can read Chinese first(don’t worry, I will have the english post up soon):

今次要Review的是Sofina的新產品—Sofina jenne line. 這系列內的Products全是針對二十代的肌膚, 很著重保濕度, 是跟現在一般只關注老化,supplements,dryness,和anti-aging的Skincare有點不一樣,好像是想發起二十代肌的Evolution運動般!而我這個”二十代”, 一向在用的護膚品是傾向毛孔和暗瘡問題, 保濕也當然會照顧到,但老實說: 找新Skincare時的prority一定不會是保濕, 因為自問我的皮膚是較油的!暗瘡和膚色不均衡總對比起”乾”這點更嚴重吧! 得知道Sofina jenne的特別之處後, 其實還滿感興趣的呢!

先介紹一下Sofina jenne.

“水 ∙ 潤 ∙ 美”—
Sofina的皮膚科學發現, 年輕乾渴的肌膚中, 存在著滋潤的關鍵「細胞間脂質」容易不足這個事實. 只有補充「細胞間脂質」進行儲存滋潤的護理, 才能為年輕一代培育出美麗的肌膚! 持續這個過程, 肌膚自身補充滋潤的功能便能提升, 變成柔軟、水潤、能持久儲存滋潤的肌膚.

20代女性的皮膚,外表看來十分美麗, 但其實角質習的保濕能力不足, 令水分容易蒸發, Sofina Jenne的 Jelly Moisturizer利用Sofina最先進的活性細胞間脂質配方(ceramide), 能大量鎖住水分, 促進細胞間脂質護理成分充分地滲透到角質層的深處,為20代女士於成長過程中培育出更為健康美麗的肌膚! Jenne系列適合外油內乾, 缺水等的年輕肌膚; 研究顯示此肌膚問題大多發生在年輕女性上(25歲前). 基於對象不同, jenne是有別於現在的Sofina BEAUTE系列—again, 因為配方是特別針對20代肌膚外油內乾的需要! 而根據研究, 20代和30代肌膚的需要是不同的, 所以較成熟的肌膚, 一定是用Sofina Beaute才會得到最理想的效果:)


The entire collection

今次可以試用的是它們的focus products: Moisture Lotion保濕水 + Jelly moisturizer “水凝啫喱乳液” 保濕霜:)

整個Collection其實也有分開另一枝日霜with SPF(水凝防曬乳液)的,但我暫時用它的Jelly moisturizer當日夜保濕用,早上再加一層Sunscreen而然. 我一向沒有怎麼用toner的習慣, 用大概算是”安心”的有Sana的Collagen spray(as mentioned in other posts before)和Dr.wu的intensive soothing spray with chamomile, 但這兩款的作用也只是再度加強保濕/令皮膚退紅吧! 日本人的保養品其實應該很著重Toner的重要性, 它們認為用了對的toning lotion可以軟化角質層, 更會令之後塗上的保養品加強吸收程度! 這一點跟外國人用的skincare toner有一點出入, 所以自己也算是很久沒有用這種product. 這用法很簡單, 你只需把三至四drop的toner在你手中warm up後, 輕輕按入皮膚便可! 而Jelly moisturizer是一款很Light weight的保濕霜, texture很Gel-creme般, 當然是絕對不會有油膩感(yay for oil-free)! 用量大概是一粒豆的份量, 但當我在冷氣房睡的話就會用多一點點, 令自己更安心吧! 反正它是一定不會clog pores的啦!

用後感嘛, 我是剛好用了差不多兩個星期, 但因為現在又飛回去Seattle一個星期,所以不能一直Keep using both of them!
這review是主要for我在香港開始用的兩個星期(~大約)! 首先說說我試用前每天的skincare routine:

*toner spray >serum-acne > spots cream > eye cream > moisturizer
其實也是很簡單, 算是正常的一個Routine吧! 試用期間我把toner和moisturizer轉了用Sofina jenne, 其他的Products沒有任何轉變


先說Jenne水凝柔膚露(Jenne Lotion II–Moist).
主要成份及特徵:
• 加入增強保水成分,抑制乾燥,使肌膚保持滋潤
• 用了柔膚露後,肌膚更容易吸收隨後使用的護膚品等
• 通過過敏性測試
• 不含油分
• 不會導致暗瘡及粉刺
• 無色素
• 不含酒精

Yes…我收到的那款不是清爽型(竟然!),但因Sofina方面說整條Jenne line的產品是沒有油膩感, 所以我也嘗試了用the moisture one! 它的吸收能力很不錯! 全面輕輕按了幾次已經立刻進入了皮膚層, 所以之後快手的加上Serum也不會感到很Sticky! 它是無酒精的, 所以用後我的敏感肌也沒有問題:) 花果香味沒有很重, 是剛剛好淡淡的, 但本人一向不喜歡Products有加入人造香料 & 色素(我用很多Natural products), 希望Jenne產品的香氣不是人造吧! 整體說我真的感覺到它的保濕力和幫我皮膚吸收其他用品的作用呢! 很喜歡它一點也不Sticky的感覺, 再加上平常較乾的Cheeks are也很有滋潤感, 值得一讚.


Jenne水凝啫喱乳液(jelly moisturizer)
主要成份及特徵:
• 「活性細胞間脂質」為角質層高效緊鎖大量水分, 使肌膚持久保濕水嫩, 減低乾燥及脫皮的情況
• 保濕成分「尤加利精華」
• 質地輕盈清爽, 絕不油膩
• 通過過敏性測試
• 不會導致暗瘡及粉刺
• 無色素
• 不含酒精

Jelly moisturizer是清爽的啫喱狀, 只需在肌膚上抹開, 保濕成份便會幻化成水狀被肌膚吸收, 發揮更高的角質層鎖水能力, 質感清爽水凝, 完全沒有厚重油膩的感覺! 說到它, 其實它的保濕力也很不俗, 可惜當我一打開它jar cap的時候, 那種香味也真的太太太太太太重! 知道香味是混入了三種”年輕代”喜歡的味道而製成的(花果香是從數千種香味中挑選天然的花和水果,專為年輕女性調配的花果香味)… 但我沒有特別很喜歡, 重點是它真的還滿重的! 這應該算是一個Big turn down for me吧:( 但它的Texture很輕和很軟, 吸收度一流! 我這種混合肌也沒問題! 用後還真算是很保濕, 過了一整晚冷氣房也沒問題, 第二天早上還是感到很滋潤但不會有很Tight的Dryness感, 讚! 這個面霜的高度補濕和滲透力,真的非常非常清爽!

美中不足的是, 它沒有幫我敏感皮膚的紅印減少(沖涼後常常會出現的random redness), 但這也可能是自己的問題, 因為不是每款moisturizer也有這個specialty! 但如果有就真的Perfect了(我一直有在用的Pangea organics—其中一款moisturizer可以幫助這個立即退紅問題,有興趣知道可以comment問我)

總括來說, 用了這兩款後發現原來以保濕為重點的skincare products對於我們這種二十代肌真的是很有幫助! 一直用太多關於控油和暗瘡的products, 很容易忘記了重點保濕的重要性呢! 發現了Jenne這條line的確幫助了我化妝平時會有的甩皮問題, 而且看來對我的毛孔也有幫助!暗粒好像也少了些:) 大概要再一直用多一兩個月才可給予更多reviews about them. So far我會大大大大推它的Toner!!:)

Ohhh, and the packaging is so pretty!
