If you have SKIN--any kind of skin--I think this box is for you! Also, a word to all you folks who have oily but flaky skin. That’s usually because skin is still dehydrated. I had that too. Sabbatical Beauty has changed that. The best thing about this box is that you can put on as little or as much as you want, adapted to your skin’s needs.
With the Spring Box that I reviewed in March, I learnt how to ‘listen to your skin’, but with the Winter Box, I have learnt how to put on only what you need! To elaborate further, for the Spring Box, I learnt how to know what my skin wants and whether or not the product will make me oily or not. With the Winter Box, most of the items are rich and hydrating, which, by right, are more suitable for people with dry skin rather oily/combination skin. Going by the rationale that too much of a good thing is never really good, I played around with how much of the products I need to use and found a good balance!...
I think the products have had to work overtime because of all the crazy weather that has been thrown at me for the past week. My skin has remained hydrated, smooth, dewy, and silky, while also (for the most part) remaining very clear. Since I’m 50 years old, and battling visible signs of aging tooth and nail, that’s very important to me.
Then, I do believe that my face has evened out in skin tone slightly. Prior to starting to use the Winter Box, my face looks pretty ok from far, but up close, you can see the little patches of discolouration from previous acne scarring. But this morning, while examining my face for any changes to update this blog, I do see that while my face is still not flawless and airbrushed like the models in magazines, at least the skin tone seems more even than before! And I do think that is because of Radiance!
In the two weeks using Radiance Serum, that melasma as well as some splotchy freckles have lightened. The best part is that Radiance doesn’t burn my already thirsty skin; it HYDRATES it too while evening out the color.
