I am 60 with large pores, occasional acne and dry skin. Results were significant and rapid. Never realized products could make such a difference.
This is the first set of products with Magic dragon, I've bought to try and I love every single products inside this set. Within 2 weeks of use, my persistent hormonal cystic like acnes did not appear 1 week before my menses (I would typically get 1-3 cystic like acne monthly).. I was shocked. The acne still appear, but it was much smaller in size and are not headless! so it heals faster and does not leave behind nasty scars! I would recommend getting this set to try if u have acne prone skin.
I really enjoyed receiving my packaging - it felt like a nice way to start a new regimen. I don't think this works great for me because I have more normal/sensitive skin than I do oily/combo. But the rose products smell amazing and the camel mask really is an effective overnight spot treatment. Recommend, just make sure you're diagnosing your skin type properly before you do.
I've long dealt with adult acne, and as the daughter of a dermatologist, I can attest I've had the privilege to try just about everything under the sun that dermatologists recommend without finding a solution (mostly because there seems to be too much focus among MDs on washing away oil and not enough on finding a healthy balance of moisture). I've had to figure out what works on my own, and figured out some of the same solutions Koh has (but she has gone oh-so-much further on the research and trial train). This set worked great for keeping my skin soft while getting rid of acne. I find I only need to use the full set once or twice a week, except I only occasionally use the camel/yeast mask (which doesn't smell great) and I only need the camel milk cream in winter. So this set has lasted me a year and been effective, which made the high price seem worth it.
Not a fan of the cream (too thick) but otherwise love the products. I found it was better to use them intermittently at night and moisturize in between nights- or I got a bit dry and irritated. Rose cleansing balm smells amazing but you need the other rose product to get it off, which smells pretty earthy. Asian powerhouse and marine serum work well on my acne, eye oil is nice.

I started using Kombucha Foaming Cleanser this summer and am hooked. It's invigorating yet gentle, foams up nicely, rinses clean and does not leave my skin dry. I have oily/combo and now aging skin and it feels so good to use this cleanser. It is a fantastic product that is so well-balanced and thoughtfully crafted. I has become one of my essential SB items. Highly recommend!
I have been using APH for several years now and can't imagine my skin without it. It's my base serum and I use it twice a day, every day. It is light and a few drops absorb well and cover my whole face. My skin is brighter, dark spots from old acne lesions have disappeared and my skin is the healthiest it has ever been. I struggled with acne since age 10 and now I'm in my 40s and I can *finally* say that I don't have acne anymore. APH is a must-have. It pairs nicely with Marine to make my skin happy.
I'm about to grab a full size of this one because I want to stock up (just in case it gets discontinued--please don't!). I am a huge fan of fruity scents, so this his cream smells amazing (faintly of blueberries) to me. It's been great for keeping my skin moisturized, with the added benefit of making my skin super, super soft (I have to keep reminding myself not to touch my face) and giving it a nice glow.
I usually apply it at nighttime as the last step to my skin care routine, but it feels like such a treat to use that I may start using it in the daytime too. A little bit goes a long way and there's no greasiness whatsoever. Love that Sabbatical Beauty supports science/basic human decency too1
Nice black cherry tint, moisturizing. Perfect for on the go.
I have been a faithful customer of Sabbatical Beauty for several years. I have tried all of the beauty waters and IMHO, Mugwort Beauty Water is absolutely the best one - my favorite and a new "must have". It is the mildest version for me, and leaves my skin feeling really clean without any sense of lingering stickiness or residue. Even at age 67 (I know, yikes!) my skin is a bit oily in the T-zone, and always has been, so I've always cleansed my skin in the mid-afternoon. Now I simply wipe a mugwort soaked cotton pad over my face, dab on some Five Ginseng serum and I'm done. I hope this becomes one of the core SB products because I absolutely love it!
I was concerned that this might be irritating to my sensitive skin. It was not! The redness on my cheeks has calmed down and my skin is now beginning to glow.
Long a fan of Asian Powerhouse as my first serum, I am even fonder of Chang E's for my morning routine. I am prone to a red nose in the cold months, and, I swear, this serum helps to reduce that redness.
I have been using Marine for years, I took it out of rotation for really just laziness. I find my skin missing it so I went back to it, that's when I really appreciated Marine. It evens out my skin, leaving it feeling nourished and hydrated. I have pretty normal skin so can't speak to the redness but even for me, marine makes my skin so smooth. On days that I use it, I love the way my skin looks, very even and dewy. Even though its not a moisturizer, as a serum, it still does the great job at hydrating. I use it with Dorian Gray and the combination is dynamite. I don't think I would every leave Marine out of my routine again.
This really cleans off the grime and dirt--even when I don't think my face is that dirty. I'm always surprised at how much it lifts off my skin. I can't use stronger ingredients, and this is effective and gentle. I use it every day!
I had been one of those "toner is a waste" kind of people, but not any more--this first drink for my skin makes my serums and moisturizer work better. It is a light refresher and lets me use less of my other products. I can't use any retinol or strong ingredients, and this is perfect for my sensitive skin.
I use this every day. I had skin that was in the "always dry" category, no matter what I tried. Not flaky, just thirsty. This cream leaves my skin bouncy and moisturized, and I think it has improved the health of my skin. My skin can be reactive, but I also find this is very soothing.
I use this every day on my face, neck, and eye area. I have dry 50-ish skin, and this add moisture, smooths and plumps fine lines, and makes my skin look fresh and bright. I showed it to my 73-year-old mom, and she loves it too--it instantly made her skin look less tired and brighter! This is one of my favorite products.
Where do I start? This thick luxurious cream smells absolutely amazing- the citrusy flavor is energizing in the morning and soothing at night- perfect for any time of day. I like to layer it on at night and let it work its magic while I sleep. My skin gets very dry starting in early fall and all through winter, and I can tell that this product will be a lifesaver. No more dry patches!!
I love the smell of this mask, it is so soothing and luxurious. It creates a really lovely meditative experience while you let it do its thing on your face. After I wash it off, my skin looks FLAWLESS! It evens out my tone and makes it ever so soft to the touch. It's a new fave for sure.
This cream smells absolutely incredible. Nothing fakey or plasticky about the blueberry scent. It's summer in a jar! And the cream itself makes my skin feel like velvet and doesn't break me out (99% of creams break me out). I hope this stays in the rotation of available products for a long time, because it's really incredible! It'll be a go-to in the harsh winter cold where I live.
