Before the Winter Box, I used a lot of drug store products. I didn’t double cleanse. Washing my face felt like a chore and something my skin had to recover from. My skin would feel dr dry and papery. Now, washing my face is a gift. My skin feels so and nourished. Adding the rest of my routine just amplifies what is already there. I’m more confidence going without makeup, and I feel like the money I’m spending on SB products is paying off with real results. I look younger and revitalized.
Along with the increased hydration, my skin is more resilient. Last year, I would have to re-apply moisturiser or use hydrating face mists periodically throughout the day. My makeup and the climate would drain all moisture from my face, and I would spend upwards of an hour applying so many products to try to restore it. But in the morning, I wouldn’t see great effects and would start all over again. Now, my skin seems to be working like skin should, protecting me from the weather. I credit the Winter Box for that.
Now that I am into the fourth week of using the items from the Winter Box, I have already decided which are the MVPs for me: Botanical Gel Mask, Milk Cream Mask, and Radiance Serum. These are the items that I will definitely be wanting full sizes of when they are launched! It has come to the point where when I think I want to be pampered, I think of Milk Cream Mask, when I want to ‘reset’ my skin, I reach for the Botanical Gel Mask and definitely, for all time brightening, Radiance!
I am continuing to use the entire Winter Box. I started incorporating Dorian Gray’s Anti-Aging Serum into my PM routine last week, and I am going to continue to do that. I really like how the products work together, and I’m happy to report that my skin look amazingly clear and blemish-free. I am going to have to substitute a different serum for Radiance in the next day or two - I am thinking of trying Pumpkin Spice Latte and Apple Cider Serum (both from the Fall Box) instead.
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.
