I bring this to vacation with me in tropical places and apply it right away after a morning or afternoon in the beach or pool. you know it is working because it tingles when you apply it. I never get sun burnt (sun screen is still being used) and when i return home my face is as usual. No blemishes, no redness from sun exposure. This is also my favorite pressed serum to use as an moisturizer. I apply it as a last time to my routine after serums. It is so versatile, not just an after sun balm like I initiate thought. Smells great too!
I love, love, love After Sun!! This year's Massachusetts spring transitioned from 30 degrees to 80 degrees in a heartbeat, and my skin transitioned with it. All my usual SB fall and winter favorite moisturizers suddenly became a bit too heavy. After Sun is wonderful all year round, but It's definitely my go-to spring/summer moisturizer. It's very light and it soaks into my skin beautifully. I love that it has the same fermented sea kelp ingredient that's in Marine Serum (another fave of mine). I also mix After Sun with a couple of products that dry to a sticky finish on my face. An After Sun + Donkey Milk Gel Pack combination is simply divine and I use that all the time. I am so glad that Sabbatical Beauty is bringing this product back because it is definitely one of my "must haves"!!
After Sun is a product that I am never without. My skin is very fair and very prone to sunburn. We went on a vacation last summer and won a cruise around the harbor on a clipper ship - great experience; then there was the sunburn and windburn. I took out my ever-on -hand sample of After Sun and all the burns started to subside and feel better immediately. We put more on when we got back to the apartment and n the morning, you wouldn't have known that my husband and I had looked like we'd been abandoned to the elements.
My daughter swims for fun, as well as competitively, and does synchronized swim. I coach synchronized swim. We are at the pool a lot! My husband is a stream ecologist - if the man is indoors in the summer, he's doing data processing and would rather be back outside. After Sun is a requirement in my home for very good reason - it works.
I highly recommend a large jar for the summer, as well as a sample to keep with you. I keep a sample size in my purse all the time and it has saved my household much misery. In short, this stuff soothes, tames the burn, and melts into the skin very quickly.
As a side bit, it also takes the sting out of insect bites.
I haven't tried this on a sun burn yet, and hopefully I won't have to. Unfortunately, I do get heat rashes regularly because of the ridiculously hot and dry weather and general prone-ness to rashes. The other day, I had a flare up on my neck, and it was so itchy, super red, and probably a bit inflamed. I put a small amount of After Sun on one night on the heat rash, and the next day the redness completely disappeared. There are a few bumps left, but the pain has significantly decreased and the rash itself is almost all gone. I will definitely keep using this product for my flareups! It also smells so refreshing!
I am usually so careful about using sunscreen, but the lure of silky Gulf waters at St. Pete's Beach in Florida resulted in my first burn in years. Fortunately, I had a sample of After Sun Rescue Balm — wow! Soothing and cool, my skin just drank it up and I felt better. In the morning, my red nose was just a little pink, and my cheeks felt hydrated and soothed. My shoulders and chest both looked and felt better. A few days in, no peeling. For my husband, who completely forgot to use sunscreen (whereas I just forgot to reapply), I combined the After Sun with Moar Honey — and I think I have another SB convert because he plaintively asked this morning when I was going to order a jar! His skin looks and feels sooooo much better.

I purchased the sample size Revive at the end of 2016. By the end of January 2017, I was a Sabbatical Beauty convert for life. This set completely changed both my face and my attitude about skincare. Morning and night, I would use the products according to the sample routine card that came with the set, starting with the Beauty Water (just a tiny tingle!). With repeated usage, I became much more aware of how my skin responded to each product - in my case, that meant dropping the Winter is Coming from my face routine (and instead, using it on my hair to tame frizz). Of all the products in the set, the APH and Marine serums are my favorites, indeed, they're some of my favorites out of everything I've tried from Sabbatical Beauty. APH refreshes, and Marine calms the redness that used to be a problem for my sensitive skin. If you're curious about the SB routine, this kit is perfect to get started.
I have extremely sensitive skin, get super-dry patches in winter, am prone to breakouts (hormonal and stress-related) and live in a desert. This makes finding a moisturizer challenging. Enter Calm cream, which I started using in January of this year. It's thick and creamy, but my winter-dry sky just drinks it up. For the long winter here, Calm cream is my go-to moisturizer; I use it as the final step before sunscreen in my morning routine, and at night, I'll put a thicker layer of it on to use as a sleeping pack.
The rest of the year, I find it's more than I need for my daily moisturizer, so I rotate it with my other SB sleeping packs, and I also use it on my feet. Calm cream is a wonderful overnight treatment for flip-flop feet!
This is a product I'll be ordering again, for me and for my daughter who tends to love vegan products. With either double cleansing or by itself, I love the gentle effective cleansing and the cool, refreshing feel. Moreover, even though I loved the way that the Aloe & Oat Cleanser worked, I never loved the bland scent. For me, just smelling this a treat!
When Janah's Strawberry Serum first arrived, I loved the scent, but just sort of left it on the shelf. Now that I'm thick in the hellish heat of summer, I appreciate it so much! It absorbs quickly, with no stickiness. The scent is refreshing & cooling somehow — when I use it after the cucumber mint foaming cleanser, my skin and senses feel alive and happy. It also leaves my skin ready for any other serum or cream I feel like using; it's the perfect summer first layer. I'm so glad I have the subscription box, because I might have missed this otherwise.
Don't let the 'oil' in its name scare you. I live in a humid tropical climate and am prone to acne, and DGO has done nothing but good for my skin. I love everything about it; it smells like a very expensive rose perfume, it absorbs very quickly into the skin and doesn't leave you feeling heavy and oily, and it makes me look all glowy the morning after. On my lazy days, I just cleanse, tone, and slather on this amazing product.
This is a lovely product for the sensitive skin around your eyes. It's nourishing moisturizing, soothing, and has helped diminish the fine lines around my eyes. Now that the skin is healthier, I've noticed I use less makeup around my eyes (specifically concealer) and it applies better. No matter what routine I'm using this will always be part of it, morning and night.
While it's not one of the listed benefits, I've noticed my eyebrows and lashes have grown more, too. I finally have enough eyebrows that I can actually shape them instead of just filling them in with makeup.
I have normal /combination skin so some moisturizers are too thick for my skin. This cream is perfection. I can only echo the postitive comments others have already mentioned. It gives good coverage, isn't too thick, absorbs well leaving my skin feeling velvety. I can (& do) use this in all types of weather- including high temps and humidity. The scent is delightful, the results are amazing. This has become a core part of my routine.
Foaming Rose Cleanser is a staple in my routine! If you need help keeping your skin clear, perhaps from minor or micro acne, this product is a must. The rose cleanser not only smells fantastic, it has truly helped my skin stay clear and bright.
Absolutely worth it's price! It helps keep my skin clear, it's a joy to use, and it lasts such a long time! Highly recommend
I use this product both as a mask as well as an overnight spot treatment.
When I have breakouts, this product helps minimize the scope as well as the recovery time. It's also been helpful with some blemishes that I thought were permanent-- they've minimized in appearance and inflammation over time.
This product is one I always have to have in stock: it's wonderful for prevention as well as a remedy.
This was one of the first SB products that I've tried and it's remained a staple. Beauty water is perfect as a toner &/or Micellar water. It's cleaning, calming, toning, is great for prepping your skin for serums and /or oils or makeup. It's helped with irritation and discoloration, especially around my eyes. This is one product I always have to have in stock!
My once a month without fail hormonal acne scars fade quickly and the scent of the rose balm is excellent. My skin is rather clear and the pimples I do get are 1 or 2 that come and go. It may be from this set or may be from the general sense of calm I feel knowing that I'm taking care of myself and using products that nourish my skin instead of trying to shred acne away.
I love moisturizing, cleansing oils almost as much as I love leave-on masks. The combination is perfect! My skin feels clean and soft after this mask. There is a barely-there scent - I can't tell what is is, but it is warm and well-rounded and natural. Picture is me wearing my Nourish Mask to rejuvenate after coming home from work :)
My skin has been super cranky lately but it loves this serum! It's helped even the tone and added an extra glow. I also don't mind the scent; it reminds me of my nana's spanicopita!
So, I officially have an SB problem. Thank goodness for all the promos they offer to help afford my SB addiction. I have been a skin care junkie since for many, many years now and these products just work. Even though I love the double cleanse method I do hate the cleansing balm. I have already bought the full size asian powerhouse serum and will buy the full size camel milk cream and mask. I'm on the fence with the marine, but this stuff seriously makes you beautiful. I have had hormonal acne since I was 20. Seven years later I think I have finally found my holy grail. I'm including a photo of me. Just woke up flawless. By the way, I have already placed 3 more orders that I am anxiously awaiting.
I had an accident with my cat one day where he got scared while I was holding him and he ended up biting through my top and bottom lips. I had to have 17 stitches and I honestly thought my face would never look the same again. The doctors told me I'd probably have red scars above and below my mouth forever. I had just joined SB a week or so before the accident and my friends there suggested I try R&H on the area because the honey in it was healing. I did and the results were seriously staggering. People I worked with were shocked at how fast the area healed up. My doctors were amazed. I now have almost no visible scarring and one would have to look very close to know anything ever even happened to me. I'm forever thankful to SB for saving my face and R&H cream has a permanent place on my shelf.
I love these Sheet Masks. They're perfect for boosting your moisturisers power and wonderful with the wash off masks too. I love anything with Rose scent and especially like using these Sheet Masks with the delicious Camellia Rose wash off mask ~ Heaven
