I'm not sure why, but ever since High School, I've been addicted to Lip Balm. Back then I just had the cherry flavored Chapstick Brand. But then I moved on to Lipsmackers Dr. Pepper because since I was a very minimalists makeup person, I loved how it left just a nicest pink hue. God, I loved that lip balm so much that before I moved to another country (I moved to several different countries for work), I would literally go to every single Target in my area and buy out their entire Lipsmackers Dr. Pepper Lip Balm supply. I remember one day a friend asking me if the ingredients in the Lipsmackers were safe because (and this so so gross) , I realized I was slowly but surely eating sticks and sticks of this stuff (why else would I be reapplying so often?) That's when I switched between Burt's Bees Grapefruit flavor because I figured it was a more healthy brand along with Nivea in Cherry, again for that light pink hue. Since then, I've always has 2 kinds of lip balms. A "healthy one without an aritifcal flavors or colors and one with a light pink hue. Before I got the Sabbatical Beauty Sugar Cookie Lip Balm, I was using Neutrogena plain lip balm for home and Nivea cherry for going out. I had no idea how awesome this lip balm would smell... I could almost eat it! I also know it's healthy because even though I'm new to Sabatical Beauty, they're really into natural ingredients in all their products. Also, it's like 10 times more creamier/softer than the Neutrogena one. Thank you SO much for giving me one of these as a gift guys... It is like averaging in the single digits as far as temperature in Korea right now so unless I'm going somewhere important, this will definitely be the lip balm in my jean pocket (don't ask me how many red lip balms I've accidentally washed or gone so far as to put them in the dryer and ruin all the clothes in that wash!)
This is a welcome introduction to the winter season. The vanilla sugar cookie scent is subtle and enjoyable. The balm isn't as waxy as most chapsticks/ balms I've purchased from other brands. After only a couple days of use, my lips feel more hydrated, nourished, and less chapped.
I have tried most lip balms on the market and I am SUPER picky about them, like to the point where I return them if I don't like them cuz it annoys me to pay for crappy lip care!
I am in love with the Salted Caramel! The texture and consistency is perfect. It is long lasting, doesn't melt in my pocket (where it stays, all day long) and the flavor is subtle and unique.
I really hope that SB comes out with more lip balms in a tube. Like chocolate mint, strawberry, etc. This is PERFECTION.
I love the salted caramel! I've been loyal to Neutrogena for years but I think this has finally won me away.
My husband thinks that the formulas for these need to be patented by SB because, in his words my, "lips are so soft and supple I could keep kissing you forever". Not that he wouldn't if given the chance anyway.
Honestly, the scents of these lip balms are not overpowering, but definitely present. I kind of want to eat my lips when I'm wearing the Salted Caramel and the Lavender Mint has me looking around for a plant. I found the flavors to be very light, but, in light of my wanting to eat my lips just from the smell, this is probably just as well.
They're not overly hard or soft. I honestly think that SB has found the perfect balance with the texture and firmness. I don't need to squash it to apply, but I also don't feel that it's going to flop out of the tube either.
Perfect for blustery winter days and nights, they glide on easily and give very good coverage for a reasonable amount of time (if you don't eat it off your lips). Absolutely worthwhile - my daughter already swiped the Salted Caramel one from me and she's eyeing the Lavender Mint.....

I love this calm cream. Very nice smell and gentle on my face. No greasy
I love using this as an overnight mask! Not just to spot treat, but as a full face mask. Over the counter acne or pimple creams don't work for me, but I find that this product work wonders for me! If I get breakouts or pimples, I will apply and go to bed, and after one or two uses, what used to be swollen and angry red usually becomes flattened and the pus will be more or less gone. And because the product will dry into a fine smooth layer on the face, I am not worried about leaving my pillow all oily or sticky. So, what's not to love about it?
This lil dynamo is one of my can’t be without serums! You may think that it’s not really doing much... but trust and believe it is working! I have a ruddy complexion so I love to have a product that quells my pinkness and this works wonders! Also it is really giving my skin some amazing nutrition and it shows! My skin is calm, bouncy and hydrated.... I will always be a Sabbatical Beauty junkie.... and you should too😉
Snail has honestly been a life saver for my acne. I use this at night when I develop acne and wake up to the pimples being smaller. It's kind of thick for my oily skin, but I've grown to absolutely love the scent and the texture! It's also not as thick as other SB products I've tried, so this is a winner!!
I love the Rose Quartz Cleansing Cream because it makes my skin feel fresh and soft after use. I typically use it as a first step in my double cleanse routine. However, I also will use it as my only cleanser if I’m not wearing any makeup. Of all the SB first step cleansers (balms and oils) I have tired this one is my favorite and for my skin does the best job getting all the oil and dirt of my face from the day. Rose Quartz Cleansing Cream has easily become one of my top favorite products.
This oil sucks the dirt right out of my pores! Sometimes I can massage it into my face and work out the blackheads with my fingers or a facial tool. Sometimes I use it to massage my face with the Guasha before hopping in the shower and washing it all away with the Foaming Rose Cleanser. Very effective first step. My face did break out at first with a few inflamed white heads when I started using it, but this went away after a week of usage.
I LOVE this sleeping pack. The texture and smell is perfect. Sometimes I even use it during the day to have the soothing smell and deep moisture all day. At night I'll apply it on top of Wise Old Crone and it feels delicious. The two products combine perfectly. I have eczema, very sensitive skin, and this doesn't burn or irritate. It feeds my skin. Will be ordering the full size!
I will start by saying I have now purchased almost this entire collection in Full Size. The only thing I have substituted out is the Sake & Rice Sleep Pack for Winter. Other than that: everything in this set is the basis of my SB routine. It is well planned for sensitive and combination skin. I can not recommend it highly enough. After about 2 weeks I began seeing results. After a month, it was better than it has been in years.
This is an awesome cleanser. Rhe consistency, the smell, and the right amount of foam when water is added. My face feels both clean and soft after using this. It is the best cleanser, especially when used after BEAUTY WATER. Winning combination.
This serum may be my favorite SB product of all. There’s just something about MARINE that not only makes my skin look better, but immediately after application my skin FEELS better — smoother, hydrated, softer. That’s why MARINE will always have a place in my routine.
I have tried many face scrubs, but this one is THE BEST I have ever used. Not only does it smell divine, it also has an amazing texture. It is easy to use, even in the shower, and exfoliates well without being too abrasive. After a quick scrub in the shower, my face looked and felt like I had done a full facial. What a wonderful product. Kudos SB!
Ordered two versions of the new Hand Purifiers - Ylang Ylang & Lemon Balm and Hops Flowers & Sage. I couldn't be happier with the product. First it does what is intended to do which is provide an antibacterial cleaner, but that's not all because they smell AMAZING. I have always hated using the products on the market because they smell medicinal (like a doctor's office or hospital), but these DO NOT! I used the Ylang Ylang & Lemon Balm first and your nose picks up hints of floral and lemon but no alcohol! And the scent stays with you! The second version I had was the Hops Flowers & Sage which I was concerned I wouldn't like because I do not like beer, but boy was I wrong. The scent is earthy with a sage hint. To be honest I was thinking I would share one with my sister (sorry Jan) but I can't they are both staying with me!
Just W O W! This scrub smells like an expresso shot -- it fills my senses with energy. The sensation is definite but gentle -- none of those harsh edges that seem to plague other types of scrubs. My skin felt revealed, glowing, but still moist. I'm in love with this.
These hand purifiers are really perfection! They serve as much needed protection as well as also much needed aromatherapy! Each scent is really calming and lovely, I can't pick a favorite! Thank you for this product, so right on time!!
The Sabbatical Beauty Hand Purifiers are really something special. In this time of high anxiety, inability to get sanitizer or protection for when we go out, these are right on time. The purifiers serve as protection but also the aromatherapy is exactly was needed in this high stress time. The scents are amazing, I can't pick a favorite! Thank you for your innovation and thoughtfulness!!
To be honest, I did not like this at first. I thought the grounds were a little corse for my taste (but I did love the taste. Anything coffee anything). But the more I experimented, the more I came to LOVE this scrub! For me, the key is to have a damp face and hands. I use it after VCCO, without drying my face in between, and I use a tiny little spoon to remove the scrub into my wet hands. Massage gently, and let the glorious scent wake you up to softer, smoother skin ready for any serums or oils you want to apply. This is as beloved to me now as my (drinkable) morning coffee (or afternoon coffee. Or evening coffee. I love coffee).
This is a fantastic, gentle mechanical exfoliant, and it smells absolutely delicious! It leaves my skin looking and feeling so soft, glowy and clean afterwards. I’m in love after just one use!
The texture of this scrub is perfect. So many scrubs out there are too gritty and too big in the texture. Not this one. It's smooth and smells heavenly. I love it. Every Monday morning I use it! A little bit goes a long way.
I had to try all three and I’m so glad I did. These hand sanitizers are light and dry quickly as opposed to the gel sanitizers. Each of the scents is wonderful, and they come in the perfect travel, slip-in-your-pocket size and shape! Stay safe, stay well (and try these purifiers to help) ❤️
Omg, this hand purifier is amazing! I was so desperate to try it, I literally begged for it, and I have to say I’m in love! It makes your hands feel clean, not dried out. And, as always, the scent is amazing! Perfect size, great scent that lasts and lasts, sooo much better than your average everyday hand sanitizer.
Love this hand sanitizer! Lovely balance of (mostly) lavender with a hint of chamomile smells amazing, but not overpowering. I prefer this style of sanitizer: sprayable and not gloopy like Purell, etc. Leaves hands feeling clean without that sticky residue.
This sleeping pack feels so lovely on my skin and is so relaxing to use before bed. My skin is glowy, bouncy, and hydrated in the morning, never greasy!
I use this product religiously. It leaves my face clean and ready for the next phase of product application. And it smells heavenly!
I love this exfoliating scrub. I am not a coffee madperson, and yet the scent is wonderful - like a quick pick me up. But mostly I love the texture of this scrub and how it goes on your face so smooth. I know for a fact that the main formulator of products for this line took a lot of care in making this product, and four iterations before it was *just right.* I have mostly dry and aging skin (I'm 53) and I love it because it takes away some skin cells - but not too roughly - to make my skin so much smoother. I find that other products go on better and absorb better after using this. Dump those old harsh exfoliants and get this one! Truly, you will be glad that you did. [I am in no way paid for this review.]
Got these beauties in my hands today and I’m a big fan! I immediately had to try the Ylang Ylang. Smelled wonderful and after rubbing my hands together, they felt clean —with no sticky residue!! I can still smell the Ylang Ylang and it’s been over an hour. Can’t wait to try the other scents. 😍 The size makes it easy to keep handy- one in my pocket (or purse) one in the car and one near the sink.
Tester here to let you know about this AMAZING product. The texture is amazing — fine coffee grounds surrounded by a light fluffy almost gel like consistency. It goes on without a problem. The final result? It makes my face look bright, refreshed and ready to go in the morning. I use it in the shower right after my double cleansing about 3-4x a week. I’ve also used it on my arms and legs to take off the dead skin cells and it feels amazing! Would caution that if you don’t like a coffee smell, this product probably isn’t for you!
This is such a great product and I like to use it as a final layer to my night routine. I feel like it seals the prior products in and gives my face a smooth matte finish. I don't stick to my pillow as much if I use this last. Because of the amazing ingredients in here, it helps my face calm down if I have some breakouts. If your skin is acting up, I suggest adding this to your routine and see if it helps your skin heal itself.
I'm part of a tester group for this product and got to try different versions of this scrub until all of us thought it was perfect. The final version got the texture just right: thick pudding-like consistency, coffee grains finely ground for just the right amount of exfoliation without being too harsh, and the smell is STRAIGHT UP COFFEE... so using it in the morning shower is an appetizer to your real cup o' joe! I love SB products because no one else compares to her ingredient list and its potency. These are quality products you can't go wrong with. If you're on the fence, give it a try! Well unless you hate coffee. Then this might be a hard pass :) Also, check out SB's masks, because they go PERFECTLY with this scrub. Your face will be primed for masks after using this since you will have removed those dead skin cells.
Tester here. Wonderful, deep brown exfoliating scrub with lots of actual coffee grains in it. The coffee is very finely ground and in a soft base. The smell is divine for coffee lovers... sweetened mellow coffee. I use it in the shower on face, neck, decolletage and the backs of my hands. Brightening and wakes you right up! ☕
This scrub is amazing. I have dry skin with a few fine lines. This scrub exfoliated like a dream and left my skin feel smooth and hydrated. The coffee grounds are as fine as I have seen, and they spread across the skin with ease, making the massage easy and, if need be, quick. The smell is delightful. The best part is how it preps the skin for more of a routine. After I use the scrub, I always mask, and I have noticed that the masks are working better than ever now. Seriously, when I need a scrub, this will be my go-to.
Love this product - I use it when I need an extra dose of self care. Smells amazing - leaves my skin super soft
I use the scrub 2-3x’s a week in the shower as part of my morning routine. The smell is beyond divine, which alone makes me happy!
Its got the perfect amount of exfoliant, not too harsh that it will micro-tear your skin, just enough to really get that dead layer of cells off your face for an amazing glow. I massage into damp skin for about 2 minutes.
Also can be used on dry spots on the body- elbows love this stuff!
For reference, I have combination skin with larger pores (which this scrub for sure helps!) and some sun damage.
Highly recommend fitting into your routine, it’s a winner!
This is an amazing scrub. Not too harsh and leaves skin baby butt smooth. It doesn’t irritate my normally sensitive skin and I can’t stop touching my face after I use it!
