Dr. Nona Skincare: Dynamic Hydrating Cream & Solaris Body Lotion

 

A little over month ago, I had the opportunity to sample a couple of products from the Dr. Nona skincare line. I didn’t know much about them, but I’m always game to try new skincare.  According to the company, the uniqueness of Dr. Nona products is the exclusive “Halo Complex™ formula” which is derived from a special group of minerals and nutrients found only in the Dead Sea. You can read more about the company and founder here.

The two products I received were the Dynamic Hydrating Cream and Solaris Body Lotion. I thought they were very beautifully packaged in white and gold.

Dr. Nona’s *Dynamic Hydrating Cream is described as “a combination of some  most emollient and soothing elements on earth….that help eliminate fine lines, fight free radicals, soothe irritations, firm, smooth, and maintain healthy-looking skin.” It promises to provide skin with instant hydration, to improve natural elasticity and radiance while powerful antioxidants provide fortification and reconstruction for damaged skin. Paraben-free.

The hydrating cream is housed in a plastic, pump container – which is always convenient for those opposed to dipping their fingers into a product. Despite its rich texture, the cream feels light on the skin and absorbs well. It has a distinct smell which reminds me of “old school” skincare products – light and fresh with a hint of powder. I actually kind of like it.

I’ve used the Hydrating Cream for about four weeks, mostly at night. Over that period, I’ve not experienced any irritation, which is sometimes a concern for me when a product contains essential oils. Though I haven’t noticed any dramatic reduction in fine line/wrinkle reduction, I have enjoyed how hydrated it has my skin look and feel. Retailing for $67.00 USD, the Hydrating Cream is a bit pricey and I’m not sure I’d repurchase it as I’ve used other moisturizers which I enjoy equally.

Next up, we have the *Solaris Body Lotion which is aimed at replenishing ultra-dry skin. Again, it is formulated with mix of Dead Sea minerals, strong antioxidants, and fundamental vitamins included to restore and improve damaged skin. It promises to protect the skin from the sun, minimize the appearance of scar tissue, and smooth skin’s texture. Paraben-free.

I also used this product for about a month and I have to say, I really, really liked it. The Solaris Body lotion feels rich and luxurious yet absorbs quickly into the skin. Like the Hydrating Cream, it has a distinct fresh powdery scent which I find doesn’t linger very long. What impressed me about this lotion is how it improved the hydration levels of my skin over time. I found that each time I went to use it, I required less and less of the product and my skin felt more nourished over longer periods of time. My legs in particular looked so much smoother and less “scaly”. Although this product retails for a whopping $56.00 USD, I’d consider repurchasing at some point.

Before wrapping up this review, I also wanted to note that, in addition to the little “toss after opening” jar icon, the production and expiration dates of the Dr. Nona products are clearly marked either on the packaging or the product itself. I really appreciate this as it takes the guess work out of how long you can keep something on your shelf. 🙂

  2. Hi Kimmy! These products sound lovely! I hsven’t heard of this brand before- lovely review, as always xo

  3. Hi Kimmy,

    I haven’t tried any product from Dr. Nona, it’s actually the first time I’ve heard about this brand.
    The product seems very promising, but the price is also something to think about cos like you’ve said, there are other brands that performs equally but with a much affordable price. I agree with that 🙂
    If they only make the price more affordable to many, so many will probably give it a try or switch to it.

    Anyway. thanks for sharing your thoughts and raising awareness about this products!
    HAve a wonderful day! 🙂

    xoxo

    Light and sinks in quickly? That’s my kind of body lotion! Can’t stand those that are sticky and take forever to absorb. I live in a hot and humid place, OK? Gimme something that I can forget that I have it on! LOL

    1. Hehe. Then we understand each other, lol. The only thing about this one that I can see being a deal breaker (along with the price) is the scent. I like it but not everyone will. It goes away after about an hour though. 🙂

    I’ve never heard of this brand before but your review has sold the body lotion to me!

    Anoushka Loves xx

    1. Lol. Then I’ve done my job! xo

  8. Solaris body lotion is new to me. Came to know about this product first time from your blog. After reading the review of the product it seems good. Is this available online? and can we use for all skin type and throughout the year?

  9. The body lotion sounds like something I like 🙂 haven’t heard about the brand before though x

    1. Neither had I until I tried the products. Love the body lotion! 🙂

  10. I do like that they include both the manufactured date and the recommended expiry date!
    Did the packaging indicate where these products were produced? France? Maybe that would explain the prices.

    1. They were produced in Israel, I believe.

  11. the pricing is steep but this was a very good honest review 🙂
