Bewertung sober


Exceptional and great.

Received, unpacked and tested immediately; Just a dream. I love the concept. Super quality, a cream that is tailored exactly to my needs and very economical. I noticed the first improvements after just one week:softer, smooth skin, fewer wrinkles in the morning and fewer pimples in the forehead area. Thanks, will definitely order again.


Visible success

My dermatologist advised me to do more for my mature skin. I came across Sober on the internet. I have been using the Hydra Defense face cream for 2 months. With success! I'm very satisfied. Thanks!


High quality goods

Timeshift Anti-Aging Serum - A great daily skin care product. The serum has a pleasant smell, perhaps due to the green tea extract it contains. I applied it daily and it feels very comfortable on the skin. Great product and gladly again..


Best facewash I have ever used

Risking to sound too overexcited, this is really the best i've tried! My skin feels very soft already after the first use, and the effect never disappoints. Redness has improved considerably; pores, too. Additionally to daily cleaning, once a week i leave it on my skin for a few minutes, and i can feel a good but gentle peeling effect. Simply everything is nice about it, including packaging, look, smell etc. One small space for improvement:the dispenser sometimes chokes or gives out very little, but it recovers after another push.


Accompanies my everyday life

Top products at a fair price, considering quantity and individuality. Nice that natural ingredients are used. Delivery was quick, advice was great and very friendly. Definitely recommended.
