SB products are like none other on the market, not only are the handmade goodies effective and luxurious, they work! Even more than that, I know SB is doing the work to decolonize beauty standards and is bringing it all back to ancient work [ snaps ]. You can feel the love in these products. Going through the site and using tools like 'Build Your Own Routine' is super helpful and makes things less overwhelming. If you're not following SB on social, get on it! They have intentional and life-giving posts. THANK YOU SB for all the dopeness. The world needs you. <3
I love the way this mask makes my skin feel! After I use it my face feels soft, smooth, & clean. My skin is on the dry side. And I fine this mask doesn’t dry my skin out. I highly recommend. My skin feels nourished.
This stuff works. Period. My skin was angry, prone to this itchy, flakey double infection of facial dandruff and a yeast infection. When I added the Marine Serum into my routine, it calmed down and basically went away. The smell is slightly off-putting at first, but it fades super fast and is not a major detraction for me. My skin is very happy.
I apply two drops on my forehead, two on each cheek and one drop each on my nose and my chin. My skin is less inflamed, the serum is absorbed quickly by my skin and then my face just feels elastic and healthy and not oily or "wet". I like to apply it and then either add a layer of Donkey Cream if I'm in a pampering mood OR sometimes my skin feels so good I skip the lotion layer altogether. Couldn't recommend this product more.
I used Donkey Cream in winter and spring in New York City--it's thickness and richness was really ideal in the dry winter months. I found I didn't use it as much in the balmy spring, but now that it's summer, and my windows are closed and AC is on, the air in my apartment has been drying me out again and I just switched back to Donkey Cream as my night moisturizer. Recommend!
Although the description of this mask notes that it helps control oily skin, my face is dry, dry, dry and I love this mask. While the SB Tester program was going on, I tested a reformulation of the original product. Honestly, it was NOT my favorite mask before, but now? After this reformulation, it is. I even bought an EXTRA tester! It leaves my skin incredibly soft and there are slight exfoliating scrubbies in the mask. It does not have an overpowering scent and unlike some rose products, it doesn't have that fake-y artificial smell. Really, truly get this mask. As I think of it, I do not know why I am writing this review as more people will buy it meaning LESS FOR ME!!!! But seriously, this mask is great and I was not paid for this review. Get you some!
The Bethany Charcoal Mask is the first charcoal mask I have ever tried and I really like it. This one is not as drying as I thought it would be, but I only use it once a week must in case. My skin feels fresh and clean after using it. I have combination skin though it is a little more oily in the summer and dry in the winter. I also have a little rosacea on my one check, and this mask has not made it worse, in fact since using all SB products, it has improved!
This mask is just fabulous. The consistency is luxurious, and as you wash it off you also get exfoliation. It is the perfect mask for the summer months because of the hydration, and tbh the rest of the year too. It made my skin bright and reduced redness almost immediately after washing it off. It also smells lovely and a little bit goes a long way so you won’t run out quickly. I like to use it about once a week since it exfoliates too.
As someone who has had lifelong issues with dry skin that gets flaky especially in the winter and especially when trying to apply make up, this serum is a lifesaver. It’s so moisturizing and I do feel that the look of my skin has improved since using it as well. I’ve tried so many other serums and not have delivered the results that this one has. It will always be in my skincare regimen!
