"Although I live in London and have never met Houria, it really has not made any difference in her advice and care of my skin. Through detailed consultations over Skype she has been able to determine which of the Sothys products, which she knows like the back of her hand, work best for me.
Starting any new skin regime is daunting especially if you have suffered from chronic skin problems all your life. With her understanding that everyone's skin is different and will react differently, Houria really made the process easy. She created a tailored and very personal skin regime and was on hand to look after me and provide follow up consultations to see how my skin was doing - and of course, it's doing great!"

"A year ago I reached a point of frustration with my skin because of a persistent problem with Rosacea. My left cheek, in particular, was extremely red and inflamed looking. Since I don't like to wear foundation, I was determined to find some product that would reduce or eliminate the redness and help me restore healthy looking skin. I happened to meet Houria at about the time I was investigating MetroCream products. She evaluated my skin and suggested I try a simple regimen of four products to begin to clean and condition my skin before I resorted to any chemical-base product. The products in my initial regimen included: cleanser, toner, and a moisturizer.
In a couple of weeks my skin began to look healthier, nourished. However, my Rosacea did not disappear. In keeping with Houria's approach to add only the products to my regimen that made sense for my lifestyle and needs, she had me try the Clearness Serum. Bingo. My Rosacea began to fade. As long as I am diligent and use my products as Houria recommends, the Rosacea is under control. Moreover, my skin looks clear and healthy, and I do not use any foundation to cover up.
Houria knows skin, and she knows her products. I trust her approach and her recommendations. "

I would like to share my experience with the Sothys products with women who have a skin prone to acne problems, like mine (it happens even after 40...). I have been using those products for about 6 months and have noticed a real improvement: the acne problem has not completely disappeared, but it's much more under control and my skin has a better texture. This improvement wouldn't have been possible without the advice of Houria, who is very knowledgeable of her products and will tell you exactly what you need, over a cup of coffee, with a big smile!I encourage you to contact this "skin magician". You probably had, like me, bad experiences with expensive products that had no results on your skin. I assure you you won't be disappointed with Houria, who marries her professionalism with quality products, at a reasonable rate.

" Houria has offered outstanding consultation regarding my skin care. Whenever I have questions she responds immediately, and customizes the approach to fit my lifestyle, pocket book, and skin. I have used the Sothys products for three months and am a convert! On top of being absolutely committed to the products, it has been very easy to order over the website. I am truly a happy customer"

Houria's Skin Care advise is very good and she can just look at the person and know exactly what to use to create a difference in skin texture. The make up is very sheer, light and looks very natural and I highly recommended it with the other products I'm using, when I first started people noticed the difference in my skin just after two weeks.
