SOBO Ultra HGF Youth Serum Review

sobo*Sent for review from Brandbacker

I am a little behind on some skincare things to review. I like to spend time with skincare before making any opinions on it. In the last year or so, I’ve been using mostly natural skincare products (tea tree oil, argan oil), so I was excited to try this serum. Here are a few things it is made without:

  • No Parabens
  • No Sulfates
  • No Phthalates
  • No GMOs
  • No Synthetic Dyes or Fragrances
  • No Triclosan
  • No Animal Testing


This innovative youth formula leverages the power of proven acetyl tetrapeptide-2 to help restore your skin to its former glory and help prevent signs of future aging. Skin’s critical immune functions are also boosted while the production of healthy, youthful skin cells is uniquely supported and accelerated. Light but potent formula also moisturizes dry skin and smooths for a glowing, velvety appearance.

I was able to sample a 5ml deluxe sample. Unfortunately, this serum and I just didn’t mesh very well, as I found it very drying. It has many positive attributes listed above (it is also made in the USA), but I could feel my skin tightening. I don’t know if this is the “youth” part of it, but my skin felt very dry from using it- the opposite of the description! Perhaps I’m just not the age for this serum, or some ingredient didn’t mesh with my skin type.

What are your favorite serums? I’m still using this serum from Valentia quite often and loving it.
