I have previously touched on my love for Sodashi but in this post I wanted to dive into my favourite product from the brand, the Nourishing Repair Treatment. I first started using this cream about 4 years ago when I decided that it was time to take skincare seriously. This was the first Sodashi product that I purchased and one that has been a staple in my collection ever since.
The Nourishing Repair Treatment is a very moisturising anti-ageing night cream which is suitable for any skin type and if you have very dry or mature skin you can also use it in the morning. It contains natural and organic ingredients and comes packaged in a 100ml Miron glass jar (a spatula is provided).
What It Promises
- balance skin tone
- increase elasticity
- stimulate new collagen growth
- protect and repair skin from free radical damage
- leave the skin dewy, even-toned and plump

Natural oils and butters are absolutely packed full of great properties and Sodashi have chosen some solid contenders for inclusion in this cream. I could go on and on about ingredients but I’ll only touch on what I believe are the most important features. The first 4 oils on the ingredient list are very rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids which help to plump the skin and retain its moisture. A lot of the ingredients also contain lots of vitamins and antioxidants including Vitamin A, C and E which are important for brightening skin and helping to fight free radicals. An ingredient that I think is really unique is Centella Oil, which is known to improve circulation, increase synthesis of collagen, improve elasticity and regeneration of the skin. Carrot Oil and Rosehip Oil give the cream a lovely colour but are also wonderful for anti-ageing and reducing the appearance of fine lines.
How I Use It
I use the Nourishing Repair Treatment every night as the final step in my skincare ritual. I take a pea sized amount, which is plenty to cover the face and neck, and massage it in. It’s very potent so you don’t need to apply too much and a little really goes a long way. Sometimes in winter, if my skin is feeling particularly dry, I will use it in the morning as well. Although it contains lots of oils I don’t find it overly greasy, as long as I use the correct amount.
The texture, smell and feel on the skin is something that is hard to put into words. Like I said in my previous post about Sodashi, there is just something about their products that make you feel like you’ve been at the day spa. My skin feels really soft and in the morning it looks plump and like it’s had a complete reset overnight. Over the past 4 years, it has been able to take care of my dehydrated skin’s needs and any dry patches that may arise. Serums and night creams are what you should be spending most of your skincare money on and with that said I highly recommend that you try the Nourishing Repair Treatment if you’re in the market for a great night cream.
The Sodashi Nourishing Repair Treatment is AUD$165 for 100ml. It is certainly in the high price bracket but Sodashi have done a great thing recently by doubling the size of the jar, but only increasing the price by about 20%. I get all of my Sodashi products from a Perth based online store called The Beauty Edit.
I hope that you enjoyed my review of this really special product that started it all off for me and will always have a special spot in my heart and bathroom cabinet! Let me know if you try it by leaving a comment below, or you can email me and connect with me on Instagram and Facebook.
