Review – Sothys Shaping Neck Care


When it comes to skin care, I believe most women tend to focus on their faces, forgetting about the other parts of their bodies. And neck is one area that most women will probably neglect.

How often or do you specially buy products for the neck? In fact, the neck often gives away a woman’s age. Many women as young as early 20s have already started to see their first telltale sign of aging on their neck.

As the skin around the neck is much thinner than the face, it therefore tends to age more readily than the face. The most common signs of neck aging are unsightly strands and bands of skin and muscle, turkey necks, horizontal lines and double chin.

Since young, I never neglect taking good care of my neck. Even till now at 40s, I will always apply sufficient sunscreen and moisturizer on the neck. To firm up my neck, I will also perform a diy neck stretching massage after my day and night regimen.

I have recently received my first neck product and it was from Sothys Singapore. Sothys Shaping Neck Care, priced at S$129 in 30ml, is my first Sothys product I will be reviewing. In fact, this is not the first Sothys product I have tested. More than ten years ago, I used to adore their hydrating mask very much and I would always replenish it whenever I finished it.

If you are unfamiliar with SOTHYS and here’s a brief description of the brand :

SOTHYS is a professional skincare line from France. Founded in Paris in 1946 by a medical biologist, Dr. Hotz, who dedicated himself to healing the severe conditions of burn victims in the aftermath of World War II. Their expertise is in skincare treatments. They advocate the synergistic use of serums with their respective home care ranges to preserve and maintain treatment results. Hence they are used and sold by trained aestheticians for face and body treatments in the salons. They are not available over the counter. Read on to find out the SOTHYS Contract Salons and Dealer Salons.


Sothys Shaping Neck Care

Product Profile

Sothys Shaping Neck Care is specially researched and developed to fight gravity and manage cutaneous looseness and sagging. Formulated with Mamaku Extract, Watercress and Biomimetic peptides remodel the neck contour, and refine and re-sculpt the lower part of the face, neck and d©colletage.



Sothys Shaping Neck Care contains two active ingredients which are claimed to be potent :

Mamaku Extract, also known as Cyathea medullaris leaf extract – powerful repairing active help strengthens skin density and improves skin firmness.

Bigarade Extract, also known as citrus aurantium extract (bitter orange) extract – remodel the contour, refine and re-sculpt the lower part of the face and neck. It is believed that its methanol content may make it potentially irritating for skin.

It also contains plentiful of potent ingredients such as :

  • Soy Extract – potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent for skin, protective effect against UVB light damage
  • Antioxidants – Tocopheryl Lineolate (vitamin E) and Nasturtium Officinale Extract
  • Emollients – Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (sweet almond) Seed Extracts, corn oil, glyceryl stearate, caprylic/capric triglyceride
  • Tiny amounts of cell-communicating ingredients – palmitoyl oligopeptide and palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7

Unfortunately, Sothys Shaping Neck Care also contains skin irritant ingredients such as chlorhexidine digluconate, fragrance, limonene & linalool, irritation.



The texture is extremely lightweight and it is easily absorbed onto the skin. My neck doesn’t feel greasy nor sticky at all.

Sothys Shaping Neck Care has a strong fragrance scent which I was not comfortable at first. As my skin is allergic to fragrance, I was worried that it will cause irritation to my sensitive skin. But fortunately there is no irritation even with twice daily usage at all.

After application, I will usually follow up with a diy massage (lift the chin up and open & close your mouth) to help maintain and firm up my neck. As the skin around the neck is much thinner than the face, I strongly advise to have constant massaging to help prevent neck aging and fat loss in a long run. I’m a proven example! ;-) See image above.

Or you can opt for the massage application method provided in the packaging too.

As the neck has lesser oil glands than the face, so when the skin on the neck get dehydrated, it will easily become wrinkled, loose, riddled with hyperpigmentation spots or broken blood vessels, and develop a crepey texture. Therefore if you protect your neck with adequate moisturizer and sunscreen daily, you definitely be able to prevent or delay neck aging in a long run.

All-in-all, Sothys Shaping Neck Care is generally a pretty good anti-aging cream specially created for neck. It not only contains sufficient emollients to help hydrate the skin but it also contains plentiful of antioxidants that will help to combat free radicals and prevent neck aging.

After two weeks of usage, the skin on my neck is smoother and more hydrate. So far, there is no result on the skin firmness yet but I believe if I use it for a longer period, I will probably be able to see a more significant result.



Will I buy it myself? Probably Yes!
