CLOSED Babor Review & Giveaway


I’m a huge fan of BABOR and I’m a huge fan of cleansing oils, so naturally I would be a huge fan of the BABOR Hy-Ol (R456) and BABOR Phytoactive (R368) duo. This two-step cleansing process has been a firm favourite in my nightly routine since it arrived on my doorstep in early December. The distinguishing quality that sets it apart from a few of my other cleansers can be summed up using only one word – effortless. This biphase deep-action cleanser removes makeup with the ease of a professional. BABOR combined the natural cleansing powers of water and oil (and unicorn tears) when they formulated this duo. BABOR’S hydrophilic cleansing oil, Hy-Ol is suitable for all skin types and contains pure, natural soybean as well as sesame and peanut oils.

If you’re unsure of how to use the twosome then let me explain it to you – gently massage 3 pumps of Hy-Ol over the face, apply 2 pumps of phytoactive on top and blend together. Add water, massage until a milky emulsion forms then rinse off.  I notice that when you apply the phytoactive base it feels very invigorating on your skin. The phytoactive base that I’m using is intended for dry skins and contains detoxifying extract of agrimonia eupatoria and selected herbal essences of mint, birch and rosemary. It sounds refreshing, don’t you think? My thoughts on this cleansing pair is that they feel gentle on my face, they don’t strip my skin and they do a marvelous job of removing makeup. I’ll summarize it for you – luxury skincare at its best. You can purchase both these products off the BABOR website.


Now for the best part, am I right? It’s GIVEAWAY time. The wonderful people over at BABOR were nice enough to offer one lucky Lipgloss Kisses reader a chance to win the two products I just reviewed as well as the Doctor BABOR Derma Cellular Ultimate Vitamin C Booster Concentrate (R1,922) and because it’s summer time (read heat wave time) they’ve thrown in a BABOR branded cooler bag for good measure. That puts this BABOR hamper value at well over R2,700.
