SkinStore x BABOR Limited Edition Bag Review
Here are my thoughts!
Babor Lifting RX Collagen Cream – Full Size – Worth $155
Powered by 2% Tripeptide Solution, Hyaluronic Acid, and Marine Collagen, this time-reversing cream helps to promote skin firmness and supplies plumping hydration to fill in and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Ingredients: Aqua, Glycerin, Squalane, Macadamia Integrifolia Seed Oil, Dicaprylyl Carbonate, Persea Gratissima Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Sesamum Indicum Seed Oil, Hydrogenated Vegetable Glycerides, Butylene Glycol, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Phenoxyethanol, Hydrogenated Palm Glycerides, Panthenol, Dimethicone, Parfum, Sodium Hyaluronate, Xanthan Gum, Ethylhexylglycerin, Potassium Sorbate, Disodium Edta, Alcohol, Linalool, Hexyl Cinnamal, Citric Acid, Soluble Collagen, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Limonene, Geraniol, Sodium Benzoate, Pantolactone, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, Benzyl Alcohol, Benzyl Benzoate, Ascorbic Acid, Trifluoroacetyl Tripeptide-2, Dextran.
IcanGWP Review: If you feel like the skin firmness has reduced over time, it may be because our mature skin is troubled by collagen loss. Here comes the anti-aging collagen cream from Babor to address this issue. The heavy glass jar packaging has a beautiful chrome-like look. It is sealed with Babor’s logo protective foil. The white cream has a feather weight fluid-like texture. It penetrates so incredibly well like it melted into the skin.
It leaves my skin dewy and deeply moisturized. It has all Collagen, Antioxidants, Hyaluronic Acid, Peptides, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E that help on diminish wrinkle and restore firmness. The skin is instantly softened and plumped. I like to apply it on the areas where I have face mask lines (never bruised, but badly pushed at the end of the day) so that it bounces back sooner. I cannot tell if it visibly “lifts” other parts – maybe it will take longer, or I have enough collagen in my diet! Fine lines seem to be slightly softened and skin tone is visibly brightened. So many reviewers mentioned that they love the non-greasy formula, the scent of this cream and their wrinkles are minimized. For me, it has quite a noticeable perfume – in the ocean family that I didn’t fall for.
Babor Cleanformance Clay Multi-Cleanser – Deluxe Mini – Worth $24.95 | Full size $24.95
This 2-in-1 product with pre and probiotics and natural kaolin clay doubles as a cleanser and mask – easily removing make-up and impurities on the skin’s surface and lifting dirt and excess sebum when used as a mask.
IcanGWP Review: All prebiotic, probiotic goodies are encompassed beautifully in this light green cream. Traditional hard-dried clay masks stress out my skin and sometimes it was sensitized. I love this new non-drying clay mask from Babor. The texture is more like a cream/clay hybrid – with a pleasant mild spa non-floral scent. It does not lather.
Please have a face cloth or muslin cloth handy. You’ll need it to aid removing the mask. After 15 minutes, my skin is baby soft and glowing plus not dry at all. It doesn’t even slightly irritate my skin. My clogged pores in the nose and chin areas are well purified and look tightened. However, the next day, my forehead has a few pimples. So the clay mask does purge out the areas where it’s harder to instant cleanse. The prebiotics and probiotics do the works! A few days later my forehead appears to be more toned and smoother, all is for impressive final results.
Admittedly, I don’t like cleansing balm, it’s too heavy. I have combination skin that leans more towards oily than normal and to use this product as a cleanser would not be compatible with my skin type. Several reviewers with normal to dry skin said it worked great as a daily cleanser – the skin felt soft, clean, and refreshed.
Babor Cleansing Enzyme Cleanser – Deluxe Mini – Worth $11.95 | Full size $34
With the benefits of a cleansing foam and an enzyme peel in one unique product, this fine-grained powder with Vitamin C and Enzymes transforms into a luxurious lather when used with water. This mild exfoliating powder will work to renew and vitalize skin.
IcanGWP Review: If you travel often or try to avoid preservatives, the “powder” facial cleanser is a good alternative. Babor Cleansing Enzyme Cleanser is one of the best-selling products from Babor. This 2-in-1 cleansing and peeling foam is very effective, as you can see from the short list of lovely ingredients. There is no scent to this product. It deep cleans clogged pores and gently peels the skin. There are very fine starchy granules that I can feel them when rubbing it on. The plastic micro beads are banned in the US so these soft starchy granules are perfect for exfoliation and environmental friendly. The fine white powder lathers slightly. You can see how the enzyme cleanser powder changes (image from Amazon) here.
I LOVE that it felt cleansed but doesn’t strip natural oil from my skin. When I apply toner subsequently, cotton pads are spotless, no leftover residues. The ingredient is almost identical to Dr. Barbara Sturm Enzyme Cleanser and it’s only half price (Sodium Lauroyl Glutamate, Talc, Cellulose, Maltodextrin, Aqua/Water/Eau, Xanthan Gum, Ascorbic Acid, Subtilisin, Lipase). One important note, this bottle is very light and it’s only half filled (also applied to the full size product).
Babor Lifting RX Eye Cream Day – Deluxe Mini – Worth $50 | Full size $99
This eye cream packs a Day Boost Complex and a 2.5% Tripeptide Solution that works to smooth and firm the eye contours while also giving the area a lifted look.
Ingredients: AQUA, PRUNUS AMYGDALUS DULCIS OIL, BUTYLENE GLYCOL, GLYCERIN, POLYGLYCERYL-6 STEARATE, CETEARYL ALCOHOL, SORBITOL, CETEARYL GLUCOSIDE, SQUALANE, DECYL OLEATE, TOCOPHERYL ACETATE, ETHYLHEXYL ISONONANOATE, PANTHENOL, PHENOXYETHANOL, NIACINAMIDE, OCTYLDODECANOL, BUTYROSPERMUM PARKII BUTTER, FRAXINUS EXCELSIOR BARK EXTRACT, XANTHAN GUM, SODIUM PCA, SODIUM LACTATE, CARBOMER, ETHYLHEXYLGLYCERIN, CAFFEINE, ALLANTOIN, SODIUM CETEARYL SULFATE, DISODIUM EDTA, SODIUM HYALURONATE, MICA, SODIUM HYDROXIDE, GLYCOLIC ACID, BIOSACCHARIDE GUM-1, SILANETRIOL, MAGNESIUM CARBOXYMETHYL BETA-GLUCAN, LECITHIN, ASCORBYL PALMITATE, PANTOLACTONE, GLYCERYL STEARATE, PALMITOYL TRIPEPTIDE-5, GLYCERYL OLEATE, SODIUM BENZOATE, CITRIC ACID, GLYCINE, FRUCTOSE, INOSITOL, UREA, LACTIC ACID, SILICA
IcanGWP Review: The Lifting RX line from Babor has highly concentrated ingredients that are promising to improve tone, contour, and cushion. I like the tip of this eye cream. The vacuum tip is perfect to keep the product from oxidizing. The full size product is a dual-ended bottle where one side is day cream and the other is for night cream. The white emulsion texture is appealing because you can use it as an eye serum for winter or stand alone ultra-weight eye cream in summer. There is no scent nor reflexive components in this cream. It absorbs effortlessly and leaves the under areas silky, soft and matte looking – it lasts all day long. The ‘redness’ and ‘puffiness’ are improving tremendously. My eye lids also appear lifted, incredible results in a short time. Your entire look changes so much with slight differences in the appearance of your eye lids!! This product makes me want to explore more of his Lifting RX line! Babor Lifting RX Eye Cream Day is my favorite product in the box and they have proven that effective eye cream doesn’t need to be heavy.
Babor Ampoule Serum Concentrates Collagen Concentrate – Full Size – Worth $49.95
Plumping the skin from within, improving its tone, elasticity and firmness, this concentrate significantly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in smoother skin.
Ingredients: Aqua, Polyglyceryl-5 Laurate, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Methylsilanol Mannuronate, Sorbitol, Phenoxyethanol, Panthenol, Parfum, Carbomer, Allantoin, Propylene Glycol Dipelargonate, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Sodium Lactate, Sodium Pca, Ethylhexylglycerin, Potassium Sorbate, Biosaccharide Gum-4, Sodium Hydroxide, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Pantolactone, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, Sodium Benzoate, Fructose, Glycine, Citric Acid, Inositol, Lactic Acid, Urea, Niacinamide, Sorbic Acid.
IcanGWP Review: The unique design bottle keeps ampoule freshest right upon the application. I have tried another Babor Ampoule before and I prefer this collagen concentrate since it is less oily. The ‘glass’ vial looks intimidating to deal with at first. To open the ampoule, you’ll need the ampoule opener (provided). Shake, put the opener on top, push down to click and break it open (see video from Gene Juarez here). This product is being used in spa treatments and you can now experience it at home.
It has a watery texture which is light, airy and quickly absorbed. The faint tea-cotton flower scent is intoxicating, and I really enjoy it every time, especially before bed. I used one vial for 4-5 days consecutively including under eye areas and my neck. My skin is quenched, plumped, subtle and appears smoother. It doesn’t pile up or feel heavy on the skin. I use it as an essence and follow by serum. There’s a lot of products in the vial. For me, one bottle can be used up to 4-5 applications. It’s a little troublesome to keep the vial safely airtight for several days. Well, it’s supposed to be single use anyway but I want to make it last. It’s such a wonderful booster for dehydrated and mature skin – no wonder it has gotten so much love.
I find Babor is a really really clean brand without doubtful ingredients like Silicones or Mineral oils. This is so thoughtful and is trustworthy for us!! Everything in this box is amazing and has strong positive results. I don’t experience any stinging, redness or sensitivity from any products in this box. All products have wonderful lightweight textures that are great. Highly concentrated products do not need to be heavy or flooded with cheap silicone to make them thick, right?! I just love this box and highly recommend getting your hands on these very clean and targeted cosmeceutical products from Babor!
These are my experiences form testing out this box, I hope it’s helpful. This limited edition beauty box is worth a whopping over $290. You can get 25% off this box during the Friends and Family Event with code FRIENDS (knocks it down to $93.75) plus choose your own free gift at checkout including Natura Bisse bundle worth $36. If you’d like to try individual Babor products, SkinStore has a flash sale and the entire brand is 40% off.
