I got the travel size and love this product so much it will be one of my first full size products. Even if it did nothing for my skin, I love the light lavender scent. Adding it to my night time routine has been so relaxing and helped me wind down and sleep better.
Fortunately, it also makes my skin feel amazing! I wake up with a face that is bright, refreshed, and supple. It has really upped the moisture. It feels light and goes on smoothly.
I absolutely love this moisturizer! A little goes a long way, it smells wonderful, and it leaves my face feeling soothed and moisturized. I have combination, sensitive skin, and this lotion helps the dry spots without clogging my pores, causing irritation, or leaving the oily spots feeling greasy. This will be a staple in my routine.
I have combination skin that is both sensitive and acne prone. This cleanser leaves my skin feeling clean and soft, not dried out or irritated. I feel like my skin has been glowing since I switched to this cleanser, and my family has commented on how great my skin looks.
I liked Sake Kasu Mask from the beginning. My darker spots and areas would lighten and my face would feel so soft after I used it. Now SB is reformulating it for 2020 and I had to try the reformulation. Want to know how amazing the Sake Kasu Mask reformulated is? It's this amazing!
The top photo is my brown spot (on my right cheek) in the morning. Shortly after taking the photo, I masked with the reformulated Sake Kasu for 45 minutes. The lower photo was taken after I rinsed it off.
No other products. Photo taken in the same room, same conditions just 45 minutes later.

This is my favourite weekly scrub. I use it either every Friday or Sunday depending on how well I'm sticking to my self-care routine. I use it in the shower after I've washed my hair. Using this scrub is my favourite part of my routine. The coffee smell is like what we all imagine the best smelling coffee to smell like: rich and invigorating. And what it does to your skin? It makes it rich, silky, and reinvigorated. My complexion is brighter and the texture is smoother. This scrub gently removes dead skin cells, buffs away roughness and dry skin. If you don't have dry skin, then it polishes your skin. So many people comment on how nice and lustrous my skin looks, and I owe it all to this scrub, especially during COVID-19 when I've been less consistent with my skin care. This scrub is forgiving of my skin sins. When I use it, I look like I've been faithful to my routine. I love to use this scrub on days when I'm planning on masking because it preps my skin to absorb the good things from the mask. This is a foundational weekly product that will renew your skin for a fresh, better week. I strongly encourage SBs to add this into a weekly or bi-weekly routine. The product is finely ground and somehow yet fluffy. A little goes a long way, which is true of most SB products. I like to use it in the shower but the water on my skin helps it glide more on my face and later rinse without staining my washcloths. This scrub turns my shower into a spa.
I used this Coffee Scrub today. I love the scrubby effect that it has when I use it, but even better is the SOFTNESS after I use it. Today I used it and was amazed at how it exfoliated and how it made my skin soft. But EVEN BETTER was how fast my two serums, facial oil, AND moisturizer soaked into my skin. All day I have just felt dewy. It's a great product and smells great and I am not even a coffee person!
I am a tea drinker. I never drink coffee. I don't keep it in the house and I don't even like the smell. That said, I DO love a good exfoliator and this is one to the 10th power! A little goes a long way. It's almost fluffy in the jar so scoop less than you think you need. I've found that using this just once a week has made a significant difference in the smoothness an clarity of my skin. It doesn't scratch or scrape but heck-does it ever make my face feel and look like I've had a spa day. I had been using Kate Sommerville's Exfolikate but found that it made my face feel burnt and was not accomplishing much more than that. While I am not a converted java lover and probably never will be, this has become my new favorite scrub. Highly recommend!
This is a great starter set for those interested in developing a Sabbatical Beauty routine. My skin looks noticeably more alive and bright and yes, revived--even over Zoom! My skin is normal/on the dry side, with fine lines appearing recently (I'm in my mid-40's), and I have slightly larger pores on my cheeks. I used this set with the suggested routine for about 3 weeks, and was so impressed that I went ahead and purchased the full size bottles of several of the products. I added Dorian Grey serum + oil, and the whole series has been fabulous. I recommend this set 1000%!!!!
As a newcomer to Sabbatical Beauty, I purchased the 2 oz size of Lavender & Chamomile. I definitely should have sized up! The smell is delightful and the product is effective. Its just a wonderful product and I can't wait to try more!
I’ve been keeping the lavender hand potion on my nightstand bc I like having it be the last thing I treat myself to before sleep. The potion is light and doesn’t leave a heavy, greasy feel. The scent isn’t over powering either so when I cuddle with the hubs he’s not like “What’s that?!” I’m a fan of lavender, and anything that is calming so that’s why I chose this scent. Of course now I want it in Day Spa bc it’s my husband’s favorite. And I want one for my purse. Totally digging the pump dispenser!
I loved the results from the first iteration of the Dorothy mask, though it was a bit dry, texture wise. The new Dorothy is just as brightening as the old one and its texture is much improved! This is a mask that gives results!
I love so many things about this mask: the way it smells, the texture, how it dries so quickly and makes my skin feel tight and how much I glow after masking! I love all of the SB masks but this is my favorite, hands down!
Pipers peat is my favorite first serum because it makes my pores invisible. I also love how smooth my skin feels afterward! Try it!
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve looked at my hands and thought they look thirty years older than the rest of me. It’s something I never think to take care of and despite them being dry most lotions leave them greasy or just as dry as before. Not so with the lavender hand potion. The scent is soothing to this pregnant can’t seem to ever get comfortable momma. And the results are phenomenal. My skin was so dry I was developing microcuts all over that hurt so bad. This not only eased the pain overnight, but after two nights my skin was healed and hydrated. Need this forever.
I have been a devotee of SB for 2 years and I am a lover of all things that are both good for me and pack a punch. This potion is rich and decadent while being light and soaks in like a dream without feeling greasy and the scent!!!! Lavender is soothing and Day Spa is fresh like just washed linen.... if you can bare to decide.... get both! You deserve it!
I happen to call any thing skincare related my lotions and potions. As part of the testers group when I found out I would be testing this potion, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it, or, it on my hands, hahaha. It didn't disappoint. This was light weight and incredibly moisturizing, the scent was lovely and it made a huge difference the very first use. Hands, heels, shins and elbows all quenched. I swear I heard my skin slurp it up. So happy to be able to add this exceptional hand potion to my magical collection of lotions and potions.
I am a hand cream hoarder as I dehydrated skin on my hands and legs. To be honest, I have tried hand creams that costs less than $2 from the drugstore, and I have tried a $180 handcream (when your hands used to be that cracked and dry... yeah) that totally did nothing for me. So, when I first received this hand potion, I did not dare to hope for much. But never was I more wrong! Attached in the pics, 1 and 2 are shots of my hand prior to applying the lotion (different lighting to show how tightly pulled together my skin is from all the washing and chores), and 3 is immediately upon using the cream, and 4 is 5 minutes after. I need never look for another hand cream to help protect my hands anymore. This, to me, is the Holy Grail. Most especially since the potion is hydrating, a little bit of it goes a long way and even a travel size will last you a long time. And the cherry on top of it all? The hand potions all smell so yummy. It will be difficult indeed for you to not try to sniff your hands after using the hand potion!
Ohhhhhmgggg the lavender hand potion is totally magical. First the scent of lavender is fresh, natural, and not overpowering. The texture is creamy and silky. Since I’m washing my hands more frequently my hands have been super dry. I normally don’t put lotion on as I don’t like the greasy feeling but the hand potions just sink right in without that weird feeling. I absolutely love to use the lavender scent at night before bed to help relax as I fall asleep. I wake up the next morning and hands are baby soft again. Love this stuff.
These hand potions are perfection to soothe dried out hands from constant sanitizing and washing. Instant relief and smoothness.
I'd be lying if I haven't also doused my entire body. Everything was so smooth and smelled so luxurious. I wasn't expecting such deep conditions because the potions are so light.
You won't regret it and a little goes a long way so you'll have potions for a long time.
This is truly magical. I have horribly dry hands, particularly issues with my cuticles. To say all the washing and sanitizing of our current reality has taken its toll is an understatement.
Enter the lavender hand potion. I keep it by my bed and apply for some relaxing self-care before bed. It’s the best kind of lavender, potent enough to enjoy, but not that heavy synthetic smell (you know the “perfumey” kind...
This sinks right in and I wake up with healed hands! And I’m super picky, I can’t stand anything greasy or slimy on my hands. This isn’t at all.
What I really love? It’s worked it’s magic overnight and it’s completely gone. Absorbed. Not like when you wake up, wash your hands and you can actually feel all the lotion you put on the night before simply wash away? And I’m talking expensive brands here.... if they wash away in the am, did they work at all????
Don't let the texture of this potion fool you; it may look like other brands, but it packs a punch the others don't. Especially in the age of COVID-19 when we're all washing our hands even more and suffering the results of what soap does to our skin and nails, this potion is indeed the magic solution. In one use, my palms, wrists, and nail beds were smoother and softer. The product absorbs quickly whether hands are damp or dry. I saw a difference immediately with the first use. Let me also say that I'm NOT a hand-lotion person. Even when I worked for a major, well-known lotion chain, I didn't lotion my hands. This stuff has me addicted. I now keep a pot next to my kitchen sink and another with my SB lotions as part of AM/PM routine. I like these so much because they don't leave a greasy film afterwards. Even my partner, who hates all lotions, liked it when I made him use it. Run, don't walk, to get one of these potions! You won't regret it.
I am SO picky with hand creams. If it sits on my hands for more than two minutes; if it leaves oily marks on my desk; if it gets caught up in my cat's hair; if it is heavy, greasy, slick; if it is Wednesday, I HATE it. But I hate it even more when my hands are dry, cracked, bleeding. Literally the day before the testers for the hand potion arrived, I looked down at my hands and though they looked like the hands of a woman TWICE my age! I was horrified! But I decided that I would rather have dry crone hands than use any of the reject lotions I had in the house. And then these beauties came to my door in their beautiful blue box. Awe doesn't even describe how impressed I am with them! My hands were IMMEDIATELY soothed! They looked and felt like the hands of someone in their 30s again! The potion sunk right in, and all that was left were the softest, most beautifully scented, hydrated hands. And the more I use it, the better my hands get at healing themselves. Magic indeed!
I live in Minnesota which means extreme cold and dry cracking cuticles, and now, a lot more handwashing. I was shocked by how quickly the hand potions not only moisturized but also healed my skin. My hands don't have any cracks or dry scaly patches no mattter how many times I wash my hands during the day. The lavender scent is calming and beautiful.
I love the hand potions! The strawberry is very fragrant-think Strawberry Shortcake cartoon, and very moisturizing. I like the lavender as well because it smells good with my body lotion. My hands are soft (the cross I bear), but I put some on my partner's rough hands and they did get noticeably smoother after a few days of use. Like, for real!
All the intense hand washing these days has resulted in tragically dry mitts. The hand potions, like every SB product I’ve used, require very little product to see results. The potion has the richness and efficacy of a cream, but with the consistency of a lighter lotion. It absorbs quickly without leaving a sticky or oily feeling like many hand lotions and creams do. Dry hands are instantly transformed to baby soft, smooth hands. My sensitive nose, offended by most fragrance, is delighted by the sweet strawberry scent, and soothed by the lavender. Keep the lavender scent on your nightstand for use at bedtime, and give your nighttime routine a soothing start to a restful sleep.
Intoxicating scent and much needed relief for dry hands and feet. Wonderful and light - doesn’t leave a greasy feel behind.
I am notoriously terrible at using hand lotions, despite living in Michigan where my hands can get extremely dry (both in summer and winter, ironically). Part of why I haaaate and detest anything hand-related by other companies is that, they're either sticky, too thick, too oily, don't absorb, etc. Almost like that film that stale bananas leave behind on your teeth. With this new iteration of hand lotions by SB though... it's easy to just mindlessly apply since I barely notice it (in a good way) afterwards. They absorb rather quickly, really like the liquidy consistency that doesn't stay runny since it absorbs. And ohhhhh the scents! SB when are you coming out with perfumes?!
So thankful you offered masks, and that my order was matched by providing masks to essential workers in the Philly area. I love supporting SB!!!
With the onset of Corona I've been forced to work from home which is a bummer but it has given me a chance to have a skincare renaissance. I bought AP a while ago but I got lazy about my daily routine and wasn't using it regularly. Mistake. This stuff gives me the perfect dewy skin either alone or under a full moisturizer. It's evened out my skin tone and made my face brighter. I used up my travel size and already picked up the Full size which I rarely do for SB products - not because they aren't amazing, but more due to the fact that I want to try a little of everything before I really take the plunge. Definitely recommend this mighty little first serum.
So far this is my favorite that I have used (from every beauty brand out there, not just SB and trust me that’s a lot!) This toner isn’t harsh but leaves me skin feeling so clean, I know there’s no funk left in my pores. I like to use it morning and night over my entire face, neck, chest, and occasionally my back if I get break outs there. This is definitely a staple product for me.
This toner is really great to use if you have sensitive skin or after using a mask. It cleans your skin out just as well as the Beauty Water but is gentle and has a soft mint spell instead of the stronger spa like scent of BW. I highly recommend trying both versions to see what works for you!
