Product Review: Sabon Organic Day Cream
Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten
Name: Organic Day Cream
Size: 1.75 fl oz
Price: approx. $39 USD
From the website: "An active cream excellent for nourishing and restoring your skin's moisture on a base of macadamia nut oil. Contains organic medicinal plants from the Swiss Alps - edelweiss, artemisia, marrubium, and nectapure (these plants are certified as organic by ECOCERTÂ® and Bio Swiss). These medicinal plants slow down skin aging, help reduce wrinkles, contribute to the skin's elasticity and vitality, and aid in tension reduction. They also protect against skin oxidation processes and allergic reactions. The cream contains many fine organic ingredients such as macadamia nut oil, jojoba oil, olive oil, shea butter, and aloe vera, as well as other medicinal plants. All these ingredients are extremely beneficial for the skin. Suitable for normal to dry skin."
Sabon is well known for its luxury products and now it has created an organic line.
I was blown away by the slick packaging - honestly, it was the most impressive packaging for any beauty product that I had ever seen. I was a little concerned that the high price went towards this slick marketing and not the product inside...
To Purr About:
- very light cream that absorbs extremely quickly
- no greasy after-feeling
- a little goes a long way
- left my skin feeling nicely moisturized
- you don't get a lot for $39 USD
- it smells a little medicinal
Aside from the stunning packaging, this product does deliver a good hit of moisture and it absorbs very quickly (a must for any cream, in my opinion). I was a little put off by the smell, which is a little too medicinal for my tastes, but it's quite light and most people wouldn't notice it much. Although it's a great moisturizer and is beautiful to look at, I'm not sure if it would ever make it into my daily routine because of the price compared to my usual favourites. It would make a stunning gift though because of the pretty packaging and the good product inside.
