I love the Rose Cleanser. Not just for what it does for my skin, but it's scent makes me hit pause for a moment and breath. Slowly and with intention. Sounds weird, but I relax my face every time I use it ☺️.
I want to be COMPLETELY TRANSPARENT! I was sent these products to try! But I can confidently say that Sabbatical Beauty is my new favourite skincare brand! I’m going to talk about the products I liked from least to most but I can be honest and say I loved everything! For context I have combination-dry skin that still gets hormonal acne and deals with a lot of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. I’m also a Black afab person.
Rose Cleansing Balm: I liked it a lot, it’s just a bit of a small mini so I could only try it out twice. It doesn’t sting on my eyes, got all of my makeup off and left my skin soft! It didn’t have too strong of a smell.
Asian Powerhouse Serum: I liked the way it felt on my skin, my makeup applied nicely over it, but again, it was too small for me to see a difference. I want to get it again and try it over the span of a month.
Goat Milk & Rice Cleanser: It cleans my skin and keeps it nice and soft. If you like to put the cleanser on dry skin first and spread it on the face for the thirty seconds, it’s a little hard to spread so I felt like I had to use a lot of product. But once I emulsified the product, it lightly foams up and cleanses nicely without feeling like I’m stripping the skin. It’s now my new favourite cream cleanser.
Sake & Rice Sleeping Pack: She is MOISTURIZING! A little goes a long way and on days where the air is dryer than normal (and that’s been all the time lately) I know I won’t wake up with aching, flakey skin.
Beauty Water: I love her so much! If I have any active acne, I can either completely get rid of or significantly reduce my active acne. I genuinely think this product is amazing!
Donkey Cream: This is magical. So moisturizing, a little goes a long way, and the antioxidants that the donkey milk has is incredible! It’s genuinely my favourite piece of skincare I’ve ever had and it makes me feel so pretty and bougie! I am obsessed with it and it makes me happy and makes my skin feel amazing without pilling. It also layers over my (extremely long) skincare routine very well!

I really like the calming cream - it feels great on my dry winter skin and smells wonderful (though the fragrance is a bit strong), but the quantity for the price is laughable to me. I love supporting small businesses and have always enjoyed Sabbatical Beaty's products in the past, but the price keeps me from purchasing more often. $22 for a face cream that lasted only for 7 uses is not a good value in my opinion.
Hi Tallulah, Thank you for your review. We do appreciate your feedback and are happy that you're part of the Sabbatical Beauty Family! - SB Team
The Bamboo Foaming Cleanser is my favorite cleanser. It smells really nice, and it's gentle on my skin. It gets my skin clean and ready for serums. I have been using it for years -- there are other cleansers I like, but this is my favorite and I keep coming back to it.

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.
We're so happy to hear that you're loving Donkey Cream as your daily moisturizer! Thank you for your helpful feedback, we are so happy that you're part of the Sabbatical Beauty Family! - SB Team
I recently tried the Kombucha Cleanser for the first time. This has to be my favorite cleanser ever. My skin is brighter, softer, more even toned and even textured. None of that tight stripped feeling, or heavy leftover filmy feel, just fresh and dewy. I’ve been using SB since 2018 and am in love with the products. This order was my first with the new updated packaging—WOW! It’s gorgeous and thoughtful, from the box to the product vessel to the instructions card. It adds to the self care aspect with genuine simple elegance. There is nothing ‘just for show’ about any of Sabbatical Beauty. Thank you Adeline and SB Team! ❤️
Hi Ann, We're so happy to hear that you're loving the Kombucha Cleanser as much as we do. We appreciate all of your feedback on the new packaging and are happy that our packaging can reflect our ethos! Thank you for being part of the Sabbatical Beauty Family. - SB Team
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 .
We're sorry to hear that you're not loving Donkey Cream. We appreciate the feedback and are glad you're here with the Sabbatical Beauty family! - SB Team
I have been struggling with skincare for years until I found this. I am always amazed at how soft and dewey my skin feels after applying, as well has throughout the day. I highly recommend for anyone struggling with middle aged acne.
Hi Jessica, Thank you for your thoughtful review. We're so happy to hear that the Rose & Honey Cram has been helping you achieve soft and dewy skin and helping combat acne. We're glad you're part of the Sabbatical Beauty Family! - SB team
Liked the consistency, the scent was a bit heavy. I used on both my fiancé and myself. He has always clear skin and I have combo acne prone sensitive skin. We followed instructions and cleaned off in the morning and both had zits. He never gets them so knew it had to be from this. Customer service had reached out and I replied with my concerns and followed up a few times and also tried through the shop app but didn’t hear back.

I typically use Pipers Peat but found that this winter, my skin needed more (especially around my mouth area since I still wearing a mask) so I purchased a travel size of Camellia Gold and loved it. It's not too heavy and it leaves my skin feeling soft. I will definitely buy this again.
Hi Lisa, We're delighted to hear that you're loving the Camellia Gold Beauty Oil! It really is a great edition for winter skin needs. Thank you for your review! - SB Team
Really disappointed in this. Very cakey. Dried up in container very quickly.

I took my mom to the Sip, Shop & Skin Party for her birthday and we had a great time! Really great crew; Adeline was so sweet & knowledgeable; a wonderful way to spend our afternoon. It was so fun to take the time out to really learn the process for a skincare routine with an expert’s advice in real time. Recommend this party for anyone!

My face loves the Five Ginseng Serum! I love how it absorbs quickly into my thirsty skin and provides extra moisture. It leaves no oily feeling, just feels like soft water droplets.

I wanted to love this so much after seeing what people were saying, but unfortunately it's doing the opposite of calming my face for some reason and I'm super sad about it. The consistency is great and it does moisturize my skin really well. I don't know if it's just too thick of a moisturizer or if it's a certain ingredient that I'm not reacting well to. I'll just have to keep looking. Aside from my face being so fickle though; it does feel like a great moisturizer.
Hi Jessica, We're sad to hear that you didn't love the Calm Cream but do appreciate the feedback! For dry skin we would suggest trying out Donkey Cream! - SB Team
I bought this because I previously had an eye serum infused with red wine from a discontinued brand and it did wonders for my eye bags. I love all SB products but unfortunately this one kept stinging my face even after a month so I stopped using it. Seems to be too concentrated for my dry sensitive skin so I'll probably mix it with something moving forward. Still worth trying! Trial size lasts months.
Hi Samah, We are sorry to hear that you didn't love Red Wine Pressed Serum as much as we do but we appreciate your feedback. -SB Team
I got the trial size which lasted me about a month. My skin is extremely dull and this helped brighten it up a bit! I'm sure with more use over time it could have a greater effect. It did leave my skin a little sticky so I only used it at night.
HI Samah, We are happy to hear that Asian Powerhouse has helped brighten your skin! - SB Team
I was really hoping this product would be worth the money however, I was not impressed.
Thank you for your review. We are sad to hear that you didn't love the Piper's Peat Serum but appreciate the feedback! - SB Team

This spray is calming for me while I'm doing creative writing and academic work! I love the Hinoki in it; it makes me feel refreshed each time I use it. It smells like a warm dry pine forest in the midst of spring in California. I can't find anything like it out there and can't wait till there is another bunch of these made :)
Hi Alexa, We are so happy to hear that you're loving the Shinrin Yoku Mist! That sounds like a lovely way to use it. We are working hard to restock as soon as we can! - SB Team
I love adding this serum once a week to treat my skin as an anti-aging treatment and really works on my dark under eye circles.
Hi Alexa, This sounds like a perfect way to treat yourself. We're happy to hear that the Red Wine Pressed Serum is helping your dark under-eye circles. -SB Team
I LOVE this gel-oil! I have combination skin, so I try and use it every other day to prevent it from getting too oily. I use it every day under my eyes and then all over my face if I really wanna do a spa day before bed. I've had filler before in my skin minimally, and I have to say, if you use this plus the Donkey cream and the Sake & Rice Sleeping pack, you could get a very similar result without the hassle. Obsessed.
Hi Alexa, It's so great to hear that the Eye Gel Oil is helping you achieve glowy plump skin! It is also a great product to use if you do any facial massages with a guasha or a facial roller! - SB Team
