Meet Marissa: Our Brand Ambassador Reviewing the Spring Box!

Meet Marissa: Our Brand Ambassador Reviewing the Spring Box! - Sabbatical Beauty

Hey Marissa! We’re so thrilled to have our Brand Ambassador reviewing the Spring Box! Could you start by telling us about yourself?

I am a part time professional makeup artist with over 11 years of retail cosmetics experience. I have worked for several skincare focused lines including 2 of the top 3 brands in the US. I am a beauty junkie who was a sucker for the latest buzz-worthy product . . . until Sabbatical Beauty came into my life. I am a full-time stay at home mom of 5, ages 1-15. I spend my downtime binge-watching streaming TV, crafting, singing, and taking extravagant hour-long baths. My mission as the SB Ambassador is to encourage, support and inspire women of all ages, races, religions and classes to love themselves unconditionally.

Awesome. Now could you tell us about your skin type, and the the conditions for spring for you?

I have normal to oily skin with occasional hormonal breakouts. I’m starting to show the first signs of aging with fine lines around my eyes and neck, and brown spots on my cheekbones. Usually in the spring, my skin is balanced, but my pores are congested due to all the pollen in the air. My pores are noticeably larger and I have some redness due to allergies.

Great, now tell me about what SB products have worked, and have not worked for your skin, so hopefully some SB folk can find a “skin twin” in you!

My skin has loved everything I’ve tried so far. My skin varies daily, but the 3 things I always use twice a day with every routine are:

  1. Maple Essence Toner - I use it once with a cotton pad to swipe away excess residue after cleansing, then pat it into my skin to prepare for maximum absorption of my other products.
  2. Asian Powerhouse Serum - This essence is loaded with so many anti-aging ingredients like hyaluronic acid for maximum hydration, sake for softening and toning, ginseng for brightening, camellia japonica extract for moisture, goji berry for antioxidants, mushroom for skin sensitivities such as acne, rosacea and eczema, and much much more!
  3. Marine Serum - Marine will boost your skincare game to a luxury level without the $300 + price tag of a certain French “miracle formula of the sea.” The FIRST ingredient in this miracle potion is Sea Kelp Bioferment, which means this is one power packed serum! Adeline put all the seaweeds in this one (haha)! Since sea kelp and algae help with collagen production and inflammation, I've noticed my skin doesn't have any redness (even around my nose) and my skin is so plump and bouncy.
