Give your skin the rich herbal cocktail of many an Asian grandmother’s loving herbal soups with the Asian Powerhouse Serum. Adeline formulated this serum by using herbal extracts that remind them of traditional Asian health-boosting soups and stews made for them when they were a child by their mother and grandmother.
Ingredient Deep Dive:
🌿 Ginseng: this antioxidant powerhouse is revered in traditional Chinese medicine for its ability to revive tired skin and its anti-aging properties.
🌿 Sake: Sake is incredible for evening skin tone and diminishing the appearance of scars, as well as to make skin appear younger and fresher.
🌿 Turmeric: a traditional ingredient used across Asia to speed scar healing, to even skin tone and brighten skin.
🌿 Camellia Japonica: also known as Tsubaki, this beautiful flower and plant is rich in vitamins A, B, D, E, and Omega 3, 6 and 9 and is many a Japanese woman’s skin secret.
🌿Goji Berries are antioxidant rich and helps rejuvenate sun damaged skin
🌿 Mushroom extract mix: mushrooms are anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and have anti-aging effects
🌿Bamboo and fermented Bamboo: provides deep hydration and helps with hyperpigmentation.
Asian Powerhouse Serum functions like a K-Beauty "essence" to be applied right after cleansing, and before heavier layers like the Marine Serum and facial oils. Pairs extremely well with Marine Serum (which will go on after you apply Asian Powerhouse).

I'm learning so much about how to take care of my skin from Sabbatical Beauty. I love the granny story of this product. I did not grow up being taught how to treat my skin with care. I love how Asian Powerhouse Serum makes my skin feel. Like it's been craving it my whole life. I never knew that layering was the answer. And I think this will be my forever first layering serum.

When I first started using this, there was a subtle change-my skin was clearer, smooth and bright. I went a week without using the serum and wow! Huge difference! This is a can’t miss part of my regimen now!

Every morning, I apply this first.
My skin looks like a better version of itself. Glowy, bright. I dont feel like i need to hide behind makeup anymore.
I recommend this to anyone that will listen.

ok, ok, I'm sorry I didn't appreciate its power earlier!
So, I've know the owner since before they moved from academia to beauty products. I've resisted purchasing their products, although I was sure they were amazing, because of their price (for context, I've used the same daily cleanser for over 20 years. It has stopped being made and I've had to switch to something new--which I like, but no better than the 6-8 dollar one, lasting months, I used for decades). I simply couldn't imagine spending so much on skin products! Then, a few years ago, I got a sample serum (not Sabbatical Beauty) and liked the results well enough to replace it, so this year, I decided to support SB by trying a few products. I started with the Asian Powerhouse Serum, Marine Serum, and Dorian Grey serum. I liked them all, but felt like the Dorian Gray serum was making the biggest difference in one spot (where any fine lines draw even more attention to whitening from radiation treatment), so decided to reorder just it (I'm also currently trying the donkey cream). I thought the marine serum had results similar to the other serum I've been using and the APH serum for some reason I thought wasn't doing much. Like other reviewers, I've noticed a difference since I've stopped using it, so I'm now going to order the full size. I think its super-lightweight feel and fast absorption make it easy to psychologically discount, but it makes a difference--those traits are likely part of its success! While I was using it regularly, my daughter's employer told me she should have realized I was her mother because we both have the same beautiful skin. My daughter is 17, with beautiful skin. I should have realized that the APH was of critical importance in these results!

One of my go-to serums
Asian Powerhouse Serum is a SB classic and one of my go-to serums. I use it on my bare face before layering other products. My skin always feels and looks happier.
