This may just revolutionize how we men look. We’ve recently discovered SOCO Botanicals – which is all about oils. They use oils for their high nutritional value and absorbent properties. Plus, oils are superior moisturizers to cream, which is mostly fillers. We all know they absorb into the skin quickly, leaving the skin nourished, replenished and soft. Oils have many great benefits. Besides being absorbent, different oils have many anti- microbial properties, fighting acne and inflammation in the skin.

The essential elements are also what attracted us, along with the line being 100% non-toxic and cruelty free. SOCO Botanicals oils are blends made from the highest quality natural resources from all over the world. Their oil moisturizers are made with hand selected oils, each with important vitamins and nutrients. In fact, they use a proprietary method of combining oils, plant extracts, essential oils and vitamins to create unique and complete products for the skin, eliminating the need for eye cream or serum.

The brand’s founder, Scarlett Olson, like us (and most men), thinks a skincare regimen should be simple, so they only offer the very best products that you might need, packing all of the nutrients into fewer products. Indulge in the exquisite aromas, quench your skin’s thirst for pure, whole nutrition and experience close-to-perfect skin. “After it was launched in 2013, overcoming hurdles and challenges, SOCO began to take off in 2015,” shares Olson. “Through grass roots and word of mouth, SOCO’s following spread the word about our high-quality products, our all in one elixir and simplified effective skincare regimen. Our customers are extremely loyal, because they know we are committed to being a brand of integrity and providing excellent customer service.”

The brand’s signature product, SoCo Botanical’s Symphony, is an all-in-one serum and moisturizer to replace all serums, eye cream, and moisturizer. We love that streamlining, don’t you? It’s an oil, so it takes a few minutes to absorb into the skin. The company highly recommends trying it without any other layers or creams for at least a week to see a difference in wrinkles, sunspots and skin tone.

It’s very effective and is intended for both day and night. Let it absorb for 10 minutes. Heck, it contains natural SPF from Red Raspberry –  ranging from 10-15 SPF. It also has Argan, Neroli, Helichrysum, Jojoba, Pomegranate Seed Oil, and Rosehip. The Sea Buckthorn, also an ingredient, is a skin-healing oil.

We love the Black Lava Scrub. It feels like a five-star European treatment landed on your face. We found it helped repair everything that needed to be repaired and afterward, it was like having taken a three-hour nap because of the renewed vibrancy we felt.

So, yep, we’re hooked. We love this stuff and we love supporting a Texas (and Austin) brand like this. Run, don’t walk to SoCo Botanicals new location at 4631 South Congress Ave, Unit 106 – or order online at
