I am acne-prone and have oily skin, so I was pretty skeptical of oil cleansing. BUT, I have been changed! Vacuum Oil is a game changer. After use, I can literally feel air coming into my pores because I’m so clean. This is a staple in my routine now.
I have been a skincare product junkie off and on over the years, swinging between department store brands and drugstore offerings (when it seemed the expensive products didn’t seem to do much.) The cleansing oil and every product I have used from SB have made a visible difference. The oil rinses off and takes my makeup with it. Good for gua sha massage, too. The regular size will last for at least six months because you really do not need much per use. I look forward to my evening skincare routine with this as my initial step. I don’t know how an oil-based product sucks the gunk out of pores and off skin, but it works.
It's blue, which is interesting. It smells mysteriously good. It makes my skin feel incredible. I was skeptical about trying Wise Old Crone Facial Oil, but it is every bit as luxurious and enriching as advertised. I have noted clearer skin, more even skin tone, reduced wrinkles/fine lines and stroke-able softness. I love it!
I was heartbroken when I came to the end of my stock of discontinued Dorian Gray Beauty Oil. I LOVED it so. But ai asked what could replace it in my routine and Wise Old Crone was recommended. And I am So glad it was. I like the results even better than DGBO! My face has less hormonal acne, less visible pours, and is much suppler and springy to the touch. This stuff is just wonderful. Cannot recommend it enough.
I use donkey cream year round as I have very dry skin. I use it in combination with the Dorian Grey Serum and my skin has never looked better. An unexpected benefit of the donkey cream is I’ve noticed my random pimples that I’d get every now and then just don’t happen anymore. And if I notice one forming I put a dab of donkey cream on it at night and it’s gone by the next day.
I love this product. But for me I have such a hard time with textures. More than the regular person. I didn't love how this cream felt on my face...but it's just because I am particular. So...it sat in my drawer for a few months. A few weeks ago, I cut myself and got 8 stitches on my thumb. My cut would. not. close. Even after having the stitches in for 10 days. The itching and burning was ungodly. I cut out my stitches without the wound being closed. Then I started applying this cream with Aquaphor to my cut twice a day....and oh. my. gosh. It helped my wound close the rest of the way after three days! I have continued to apply it religiously and I have never had stitches heal this quickly. Or look this good! This cream is helping my scar so much more than Mederma ever did. Ive had my fair share of stitches and cuts. I PROMISE you I have never, ever have had a wound heal this well. The redness has gone away, the suture holes are practically invisible. The new skin looks healthy. It has elasticity, a good pinkness to it and has gotten thicker since the cream. Its not so delicate anymore. So...get this cream. Imagine what it can do for your face! Calm Cream + Aquaphor = chef's kiss
I came to Sabbatical because of the company’s values but their products made me a fan for life. I use this serum most nights and it’s been such a welcome addition to my skincare. My skin feels amazing after I apply it — soft and supple — and my skin texture is more even. I can’t recommend Five Ginseng enough.
I did not expect to love this cleanser! I think I originally added this to my cart so that I could meet a free shipping minimum, lol.
I love the texture, smell, feel, results. The smell does smell sweet and very autumn-y. I don't think it's for everyone, but personally for me, I get so excited to use it every morning and night. This cleanser does give me a slight tingle and packs a little bit of heat, which I don't think was mentioned in the reviews. I'm not sure what in the ingredients list would cause this tingle, maybe the goats milk lactic acid? In that sense, I wouldn't call it gentle, but it is hydrating.
NOTE - I initially got this in the travel size, but it comes in a screw cap bottle and is really too thick to dispense from a tiny bottle like that. Just go for the full size, which isn't that big. This is a bit pricey, but it's one of the few cleansers I've really loved EVER.
I have combination skin with some dark spots (thanks, sun!) that I've been trying to combat, and feel that this miracle liquid restored the glowiness and reduced the spots. I use a cotton ball to apply and have sadly run out of the travel size after a month and a half or so, but I was using it generously most mornings and evenings. I've upgraded to the full size in hopes of reducing the dark spots completely.
I use this 1-2 times per week, regardless of season. I have been using my Travel Size for over a year. A little goes a long way! Since the pandemic, I stopped wearing make-up to hide my hyper pigmentation. The Bomb has helped fade my old acne and electrolysis scars. With the combination of other SB products, I have noticed a big change for the better in my skin's texture and appearance. My skin is smoother and brighter especially around my chin where most of my scars are located. Yes, it does sting a little but not as much as other products that were advertised NOT to sting. At least SB is honest and upfront about that. And that's why I love SB! Thank you, Adeline!
During the winter, I use this sleeping mask at least once a week. A little goes a long way! During the winter, my skin tends to be a little more irritated and dry. I think it's due to my working conditions (an old school with radiator heat). This has helped keep my skin nice and hydrated. The included amethyst is a nice reminder to focus on myself and enjoy that self-care. And it smells divine!
I've been using The Carol for over two-years. A little goes a long way! Since the pandemic, I stopped wearing make-up to hide my hyper pigmentation. The Carol has helped fade my old acne and electrolysis scars. My skin is brighter especially around my chin where most of my scars are located. What I love about it the most is it is not harsh. It does not sting or irritate my skin like some other products that have hydroquinone. I hope there is something that has taken its place!!!
Just like many of the reviews, I have noticed that it really gets anything that wasn't removed after double cleansing. And I don't wear any make-up so it's just every day dirt and grime. I look at the cotton ball and am amazed that there's still crap left in my pores and on my face. It makes my skin soft and smooth; sometimes I can't stop touching it! I love that it doesn't sting or make my face red or irritated. And it smells wonderful!
I use Glow as the last product. I love that it actually makes my face shine, and in a good way! No make-up or highlighters needed! By the end of the day, I still look refreshed! I've been using my the same jar for over a year. A little goes a long way! BTW, I followed the SB list of serums from light to heavy. Thank you for that! I really needed help with that because I'm pretty much challenged when it comes to that kind of stuff. LOL
