Skin Type and Location:
Hello! This is Peyton, and I’m at the end of week 3 with the Sabbatical Beauty Winter Box. Maryland decided to be mostly cold and colder this week, staying in the 30-40 degree range. I have aging/combination skin.
The Winter Box products are continuing to work their magic. In spite of my experience with the Sabbatical Beauty product line, I was still surprised by how well they are lasting. A little bit of product goes a long way. Generally, I begin to get very dry during cold weather, but that has not happened this year! My skin is hydrated, smooth, dewy, and silky.
Changes I’ve seen: After a brief bought of chin acne last week, they are now all gone and almost completely healed.
AM Routine & PM routine
AM: Double cleanse with Bamboo Cleansing Balm and Rice Against the Patriarchy, apply Lift Serum (not in the Winter Box), Radiance Serum, apply Rosehip Healing Oil (Coming Soon!) to face, dėcolletage and backs of hands, use AAEGO (also not in the Winter Box) under my eyes and stroke any remainder over my eyebrows, and finish with Donkey Cream (and then sunscreen!). I also use Day Spa Body Cream (Coming Soon!) for hands, arms, and legs. If my hair is dry and/or flyaway, I will put a couple of drops of Coffee Hair Oil (Coming Soon!) in my palms and rub my palms over the top layer of my hair, the sides, and at the nape of my neck (which keeps my hair from getting tangled by the collar or hood of my coat. I wear the Burgundy Lip Tint (Coming Soon!) almost every day; it’s a very flattering shade of burgundy. .
PM: wash with Bamboo Cleansing Balm and Rice Against the Patriarchy; I follow that with Radiance Serum, AAEGO, Rosehip Healing Oil (Coming soon!), Dorian Gray's Anti-Aging Serum, Donkey Cream, and then Snow Sleeping Cream, Day Spa Body Cream (Coming Soon!) for hands, arms, and legs. Carol, one of the other reviewers, uses Donkey Cream as well as Snow Sleeping Cream in her PM routine, and I decided to try it as well. It is working nicely thus far. I was a little concerned that my skin would become greasy with both products, but I needn’t have been.
Any changes I’ve made
I am continuing to use the entire Winter Box. I have started incorporating Dorian Gray’s Anti-Aging Serum into my PM routine, and have been pleased with the results. The minor breakouts I had last week are almost completely healed, and Rosehip Healing Oil seemed to have a great impact on the healing process - the little scabs from the acne were very even and easy to cover with concealer, and they healed very quickly.
Overall, I’m extremely pleased with the effects I am getting from the Winter Box! My skin looks fabulous, and feels even better. I’ve gotten many compliments about it over the past week.
