Strong, but pleasant, scent

This cleanser has a very strong lavender scent, which I've come to really appreciate in the evening. It could be a bit much, though, for anyone with a sensitive nose. The texture is easy to apply and allows for a nice little facial massage. As far as I can tell, it does its job well, though I'm not removing makeup so I don't know how effective it is at that. Only drawback: I am a bit skeptical, I must admit, of paying this much for a cleanser that is primarily mineral oil.

Lavender with Rosemary Cleansing Balm

I learned about double cleansing from SB and this has been my first oil cleanser. I like the lavender smell of this oil balm and how it helps break down the stuff on my skin so I can clean make up and sunscreen off my face better. I can tell the difference in how clean my skin looks after washing when I double cleanse. The balm feels a bit thick for me, so I may try a different oil cleanser when I run out (though I do love that lavender smell and this might just be how it is with all oil balms, like I said, I am new to this). Double cleansing with this balm also helps my skin feel more soft and moisturized after washing my face. I also like that the sample size lasts a long time, I've had mine for a couple of months and I use it every day.

I'm in LOVE with this cleanser!

I just found Sabbatical Beauty through a Facebook group. I turned 45 earlier this month and treated myself to a facial, when I was, ahem, **strongly** encouraged to start taking better care of my skin. When I mentioned my Neutrogena and Cetaphil "regimen," the esthetician was silent for a moment and then mentioned that those products had petroleum in them. I don't know exactly what petroleum does to skin, but it can't be good.

I also considered R+F, but it felt like such a commitment to me. I liked that SB would let me try sample sizes before buying full -size. (And it's almost a joke to call this one a "sample"-- It's going to last me three months!)

So I'd never done a double -cleanse before trying this. First, the smell is heavenly. Before I started adding serums I could still smell it when I went to bed, and I swear it helped with insomnia. When I finish with a foaming cleanser (my fave is Goat Milk and Rice), I feel clean and calm.

Plus, my skin is softer than it's ever been. And those red patches that I thought were permanent damage from teenage acne? Significantly lighter. I will use this cleansing balm FOREVER!

My Favorite Cleansing Balm

I have now tried all of the Cleansing Balms, but this one is my favorite hands down. It is the one thing that helps get me out of bed every morning because I love the smell as well as using it. So if you love lavender please give this one a try. I understand that others might not be as lavender crazy as I am and while I am sorry for you, it means there is MORE for me!

My favorite makeup remover!

The Lavender with Rosemary Cleansing Balm is one of my favorite SB products. I use it as a makeup remover before workouts and at the end of the day, or in place of a foaming cleanser whenever my skin is feeling dry. [Side note: this is an awesome favorite product to take to the gym or studio… it won’t ever leak in your bag and it cuts down on trash from cotton pads or makeup remover wipes]. The scent is very light; I prefer the Lavender Rosemary scent MUCH more than the Bamboo or Rose cleansing balms, which can be a bit overpowering. I highly recommend trying a cleansing balm if you haven’t used one before! It feels so good to apply and massage into the skin and really does wonders for my pores. I ran out for several weeks and my pores were noticeably larger and more clogged, even though I was still using other SB products.
