Unlike the other reviewers here, I know nothing about Crystals. Nothing. As in: Not. A. Thing. But I also did not know much about facial care/K-beauty and I learned through SB. I've been using SB products exclusively for about 3 years. So, when there were some Sabbatical Beauty Community Facebook Page posts and videos from founder Adeline Koh, I was intrigued, especially because like her (she admits this), I was so into YANG energy and everything male and fire-y. Crystals are balancing and help with your yin energy, and interestingly, I was reading about *that* elsewhere. When I saw that it only 10 bucks, I thought, what the hay. I got them and I will admit to having been drawn to them. I can't explain it, and I kinda don't want to (? that seems more yang-y lol). I put them around my yoga mat and after practice see if one of them is calling to me and hold it in meditation. Last night I was feeling very tired and overwhelmed and I was drawn to the rose quartz one. I grabbed it and held it. It did make me feel better. I'm just going with this so I don't know how helpful will be, but if you're curious and 10 bucks is in your budget, I say start with SB's crystal kit. It's guaranteed to be from a reputable source, because Adeline doesn't allow us any crap stuff. And you might find your energy and inner soul helped. [that said I have not put it in water to drink it yet, lol].
Although I grew up loving crystals, rocks, and stones: things that can take a time to create, never would I have thought myself a person who would use crystals. How things change! The Self Love Crystal Kit reminds me to be generous with forgiveness, love and care—for myself and others. When I find myself out of balance, for example, I hold the clear quartz; the crystal is now familiar to me in shape and feel. The familiar crystal quickly brings me back to the present, at which point I can ask myself questions that help me make decisions about what will help me reclaim my balance. All my crystals are familiar in shape and feel. I hold them singularly at different times and by two or three at other times. My amethyst reminds me to stay in my own lane, which helps me relate energy/feelings/stuff that does not belong to me. Rose quartz softens the edges of life, especially when I focus on caring for others above myself, by reminding me to be more gentle with myself. I am looking forward to using the kit for a crystal elixir. I am curious to see how I feel and focus after drinking a rose quartz, amethyst, and clear quartz elixir. For me, the crystals are an invitation to be more intentional with my kindness, forgiveness, care, focus, and love. (In the picture are my three crystals from the Self Love Crystal Kit and my moonstone bracelet, which comes from of the 2019 Deluxe Autumn Moon Box.)
I didn’t get this SB product because I have long been into crystals. Instead, I thought, “Let’s see; it’s $10.” What I found was and is surprising. The energy was instantly present when I took the crystals from their bag. The hair stood up on the back of my neck in a GOOD way; my pulse raced in several different moments that told me which stone was most powerful and useful in a certain moment. I have since used them for meditation (with and without yoga), water infusion/elixir making (as suggested), and stress relief breathing/meditation. I am becoming a crystal person and never thought that was possible! Another amazing SB innovation in my life.

This is the perfect cream to wear at night. My skin feels so hydrated without feeling greasy or heavy.
This toner is straight up magic. I started using it, and patting it gently into my skin, and I feel like my skin looks younger. Obviously, I love it!!
As soon as I started using this cleanser, I noticed the redness in my face start to go away. I’ve tried so many different products before coming across Sabbatical Beauty, and this is by far the best! I can’t believe how quickly my skin responded!
This is the absolute best oil cleanser I have ever used! It works so well without leaving any kind of residue, and I love how my skin feels after I use it! It’s the perfect first step to my skincare routine.
I love this cleanser so much. It leaves my skin feeling smooth and moisturized and the scent is amazing. Perfect for oily skin on hot days
I have been using this in the last step of my routine as a moisturizer for about 6+ months. This pressed serum really hydrates my skin without leaving any residue. I wake up with dewy, hydrated skin :)
Huge fan of this serum, using it twice a day after applying toner. Really nourishes my skin!
Nice product, highly recommend. I use it every other day with the charcoal mask!
This cute little potion seemingly does wonders for the skin. Its made with some yeast so it smells a little funky. But it immediately started to improve the look and feel of my skin. I am using it in combination with the vacuum oil cleanser and the rose cleanser. It feels good to know that your feeding your skin the good stuff.
This cleanser instantly cleans your pores. Even those nasty little blackheads that form around your nose in places that are hard to reach. Not only does it make your face look clean, it also feels clean. This oil cleanser leaves the skin feeling really healthy.
I tried the travel size Got Grits set and fell in love with both products but ran out of the mask first. At first my skin reacted with bumps and I thought it was too harsh but I have it another go after a week or so, and oh my word my face is so soft and smooth after every application! The exfoliation is very gentle even though I can feel the fine grains as I wash the mask off. Super easy to apply and washes clean (recommend to was off in the shower for the least mess).
This was just the right serum to serve as a base for all other serums to add onto. This serum helped my face feel neutralized, clean and soaked in well as opposed to just sitting on top of my skin. I tried the sample which was a perfect size for me to try and get a sense of its effectiveness. I will be sure to buy the full size soon!
I was in mourning for Peppermint Beauty Water until I tried Mugwort. I use it at night when I can't face the duck bath of double cleansing (which is most nights). The classic Beauty Water is a bit harsh for my skin. Mugwort gives my skin a glow with no added redness. I think this is the perfect product for anyone with sensitive skin or redness. <3
After a few months of being obsessed with the oil cleanser but trying to use up my previous facial cleanser, I was convinced to try a sample of this kombucha cleanser. I will never go back. I love the feel of the low foam and this washes so clean without any drying or tightness of my skin. My skin tone has also improved in just a few weeks of use along with the sake splash mask a few times a week.
This cream is a wonderful treat for my aging, dry, sensitive skin. I layer it over Marine and Dorian Grey sera, add a thin skin oil on top, then do gua sha massage. My husband has remarked that my skin glows.
