Donkey Cream

  • Adeline is often asked to choose what their favorite product is - and while it's hard to pick from your children, Donkey Cream is always in their regimen, no matter what time of year. Not least because of its lovely soft creamy texture like you see here.⁠

    Donkey Cream is used for dry, sensitive and aging skin to rehydrate and give you as much taut bounciness as possible. Donkey Cream is made with a base of Donkey Milk, which other than anti-aging, also seems to do generally a great job with healing acne, and shea butter, which does the hydration bit. Instead of using a silicone, we use fermented bamboo water in the cream to increase slip. Bamboo also helps deeply hydrate and aids discoloration.⁠

    Donkey Cream is 45% Donkey Milk, a cult Korean beauty ingredient, as it contains more than 40% of the necessary amino acids for skin health, and for the production of collagen, elastin and keratin. Additionally, it is high in Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, D & E and C, which may give it quick healing, anti wrinkles, firming and skin regenerating properties.

Makes my face happy!

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 love Sabbatical Beauty! And my skin actually looks dewy…at 63! But Donkey cream does nothing for me. It feels waxy … more like a nighttime mask .

Clear, bright, toned and HAPPY winter skin

I hardly ever write reviews, however I’ve been so impressed with this cream I had to submit one for this cream. It’s thick soothing and sort of spicy? I have dry, sensitive skin, so at first it has a bit of a tingling effect, but I feel it’s because of the natural toning ingredients of the cream. It keeps my skin clear, hydrated, toned and bright through the cold months - I never look run-down even though I’m a very tired single mama. I love that it’s very hydrating and doesn’t clog my pores (this had been my problem with other products - not from Sabbatical beauty). Also, a little goes a long way. I bought a full size cream last December after trying the travel size and have barely used 1/4 of the container… I should probably use it more since I work remotely. I currently only use it in the evening before bed and sometimes layer it with the Sake and Rice sleeping pack on those extra cold, dry nights and wake up with youthful bright skin. Absolutely LOVE it!

Hi Alyssa,
Wow! Thank you so much for this thorough review. It is so great to hear that you're loving the Donkey Cream so much. This is a favorite product for us and we love to hear that you're enjoying all of the lovely benefits of this cream. We're happy to be a part of your routine! - SB Team
