I love the Rose Cleanser. Not just for what it does for my skin, but it's scent makes me hit pause for a moment and breath. Slowly and with intention. Sounds weird, but I relax my face every time I use it ☺️.
I want to be COMPLETELY TRANSPARENT! I was sent these products to try! But I can confidently say that Sabbatical Beauty is my new favourite skincare brand! I’m going to talk about the products I liked from least to most but I can be honest and say I loved everything! For context I have combination-dry skin that still gets hormonal acne and deals with a lot of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. I’m also a Black afab person.
Rose Cleansing Balm: I liked it a lot, it’s just a bit of a small mini so I could only try it out twice. It doesn’t sting on my eyes, got all of my makeup off and left my skin soft! It didn’t have too strong of a smell.
Asian Powerhouse Serum: I liked the way it felt on my skin, my makeup applied nicely over it, but again, it was too small for me to see a difference. I want to get it again and try it over the span of a month.
Goat Milk & Rice Cleanser: It cleans my skin and keeps it nice and soft. If you like to put the cleanser on dry skin first and spread it on the face for the thirty seconds, it’s a little hard to spread so I felt like I had to use a lot of product. But once I emulsified the product, it lightly foams up and cleanses nicely without feeling like I’m stripping the skin. It’s now my new favourite cream cleanser.
Sake & Rice Sleeping Pack: She is MOISTURIZING! A little goes a long way and on days where the air is dryer than normal (and that’s been all the time lately) I know I won’t wake up with aching, flakey skin.
Beauty Water: I love her so much! If I have any active acne, I can either completely get rid of or significantly reduce my active acne. I genuinely think this product is amazing!
Donkey Cream: This is magical. So moisturizing, a little goes a long way, and the antioxidants that the donkey milk has is incredible! It’s genuinely my favourite piece of skincare I’ve ever had and it makes me feel so pretty and bougie! I am obsessed with it and it makes me happy and makes my skin feel amazing without pilling. It also layers over my (extremely long) skincare routine very well!
The Bamboo Foaming Cleanser is my favorite cleanser. It smells really nice, and it's gentle on my skin. It gets my skin clean and ready for serums. I have been using it for years -- there are other cleansers I like, but this is my favorite and I keep coming back to it.
If Donkey Cream is right for you, it's Right For You. (It's a slightly tacky, thick moisturizer, so if that's not your jam, ymmv. And the scent is something I can only describe as extra-delicious Play-doh - again, ymmv, but I love it.) Donkey Cream is one of two products I use every single day, no matter where I am or what I'm doing. I use it as a year-round night cream, as well as a daytime winter moisturizer, and my skin is clearer and better hydrated than it's ever been, aging be darned! Also? A little goes a very long way. Even in winter, a full-size jar lasts me at least six months.
I recently tried the Kombucha Cleanser for the first time. This has to be my favorite cleanser ever. My skin is brighter, softer, more even toned and even textured. None of that tight stripped feeling, or heavy leftover filmy feel, just fresh and dewy. I’ve been using SB since 2018 and am in love with the products. This order was my first with the new updated packaging—WOW! It’s gorgeous and thoughtful, from the box to the product vessel to the instructions card. It adds to the self care aspect with genuine simple elegance. There is nothing ‘just for show’ about any of Sabbatical Beauty. Thank you Adeline and SB Team! ❤️
I have been struggling with skincare for years until I found this. I am always amazed at how soft and dewey my skin feels after applying, as well has throughout the day. I highly recommend for anyone struggling with middle aged acne.
I typically use Pipers Peat but found that this winter, my skin needed more (especially around my mouth area since I still wearing a mask) so I purchased a travel size of Camellia Gold and loved it. It's not too heavy and it leaves my skin feeling soft. I will definitely buy this again.
I took my mom to the Sip, Shop & Skin Party for her birthday and we had a great time! Really great crew; Adeline was so sweet & knowledgeable; a wonderful way to spend our afternoon. It was so fun to take the time out to really learn the process for a skincare routine with an expert’s advice in real time. Recommend this party for anyone!
My face loves the Five Ginseng Serum! I love how it absorbs quickly into my thirsty skin and provides extra moisture. It leaves no oily feeling, just feels like soft water droplets.
This works like a charm. My skin is always dewy and glowing after using this mask. Love!
This made for a perfect Christmas gift, and it was so easy to buy. Will definitely choose to do this again.
I got the trial size which lasted me about a month. My skin is extremely dull and this helped brighten it up a bit! I'm sure with more use over time it could have a greater effect. It did leave my skin a little sticky so I only used it at night.
I love this face cream. It smells amazing, and gives my dry skin what it needs during winter months!
I love the clarity this serum gives my face combined with the Asianpower serum. :)
This spray is calming for me while I'm doing creative writing and academic work! I love the Hinoki in it; it makes me feel refreshed each time I use it. It smells like a warm dry pine forest in the midst of spring in California. I can't find anything like it out there and can't wait till there is another bunch of these made :)
