09 Oct BABOR
The thought of me recently turning 28 made me re-evaluate a few things in my life, including how well I take care of myself and both my body and skincare routine. I’ve been dealing with dehydrated, dull looking skin and decided to look into what products could assist with this. I asked my Instagram followers what skincare brands they use and recommend and BABOR came up quite frequently, so I decided to give it a try. This product has a very premium price point, so I chose to try out the ampoules first ?
I bought the Active Night Fluid as well as the Hydra Plus Fluid from the online store. There are 7 ampoules in each box and the great thing was that the products arrived 2 days later with the most beautiful packaging (which I can’t show you because I opened the package up in 0,25 seconds). I love those ‘to me, from me’ gifts. The level of excitement I feel when opening them is palpable. What caught my eye about this range was that these skincare products have extra strength active ingredients that instantly hydrate and repair the skin to create a true skincare masterpiece. Yes please! I’m SO keen for masterpiece looking skin. BABOR has a selection of ampoules to address different skincare concerns from anti-aging and acne to regeneration and restoration, so whatever your skincare need, they will have a product to assist you.
I’ve been using the Hydra Plus Active Fluid during the day and I noticed that I got an instant moisture boost for my dehydrated skin. My skin instantly appeared fresh and smooth which made me feel beautiful and confident all-day long. Bed time was already one of my favourite parts of the day but now I have so much more to look forward to. I gently cleansed my face and then popped open an Active Night Fluid Ampoule which consists of all black active ingredients like black seaweed and black truffle to boost my skins energy levels while regenerating and lifting overnight. Then I can get my beauty sleep and wake up ready to live my best life!
When using the ampoules, I hold it firmly by its neck and with a sharp movement I snap it open at the lower, coloured ring. It also comes with an ampoule opener which they encourage you to use to avoid cutting yourself on the glass. I must be honest, I love the luxurious popping sound that this product makes when it opens. I feel very professional opening it. Like that PowerPuff Girls professor adding some sugar and spice and all things nice to my skincare routine. Then I pour the fluid into the palm of my hand and smooth it evenly all over my face and neck, ensuring no place is left without a touch of liquid magic. I gently press my fingers into my skin to assist with absorption and then I apply my moisturising cream. I love that I’m putting healthy, high quality, active ingredients into my skin and the results can be seen and felt almost immediately.
This product retails for between R577,00 – R980,00 for 7 ampoules, depending on your targeted skin concern. This product is designed for one ampoule to be used a day as a 7 day treatment. However, you can use them intermittently whenever your skin needs some extra love and instant restoration! Available at select spas and salons nationwide as well as via BABOR’s online shop.
*This post was not paid for by BABOR, but I am so in love with their range so I will unashamedly be sending this post to them in the hopes of getting my hands on one of their famous BABOR advent calendars. I would die! We all know a girl needs 25 days to gorgeous skin for Christmas…watch this space!
