BABOR – Luxury skincare

BABOR is a luxury skincare brand that I have fallen head over heels for and I don’t find it surprising that they have been ranked as one of the top 50 luxury brands in Germany.

BABOR, a global leader in skincare, has been ranked as one of the Top 50 Luxury Brands in Germany by a luxury German connoisseur publication – Luxury Business Report 2015. BABOR ranked 47th and is the only professional skincare company to find a place on this prestigious list.

Most recently I had the opportunity to try BABOR New Skin Fluids Ampoule Concentrates FP.

This product is definitely one of the top 5 best skincare products that I have ever used. Really. I’m talking visible results almost instantly. Fresh-looking, plump and radiant skin. I would use these ampoules every night if I could. They are designed for dry skin which made me think that the concentrate may have a heavy texture, but it was surprisingly light. After applying the fluid to my face, neck and chest, my sensitive skin felt soothed and nourished. This is what BABOR has to say about this product:

The answer for skin that is flaky, uneven and dull. Works to regenerate the upper layers of the skin while instantly creating a pleasantly smooth look and feel. The innovative Lipid Repair Complex, formulated with ceramides, white lupin and plantain effectively regenerates the lipid matrix and restores the skin’s protective barrier, which is essential for healthy skin. The complexion becomes smooth and supple again, making skin feel like new.

The BABOR Moist & Lipid New Skin Fluids retails for R732. The other fluids in the range that I really want to try are the Collagen Booster Fluids and the 3D Lifting Fluids.

The ampoule concentrates aren’t the only products from this fantastic brand that I really enjoy.

The Deep Pore Cleansing Mask is a winner and I use this mask twice a week. It deeply cleanses the skin and exfoliates to leave the skin looking clear and radiant. Look out for this beauty in 2016 as it will become part of BABOR’s standard range next year.

The ultimate treat for your lips is the Basic Care Lip Repair Balm. It is pricey at R154, but it’s worth it.

Precious Argan oil effectively regenerates the lipid layer of the skin. Shea butter supplies and binds moisture. Pure natural oils from avocado, soja, sesame and olive nourish the lips and they become soft and supple.

I also reviewed the BABOR Anti-Aging Sun Care Sun Spray Lotion SPF15 a couple of months ago and I still use it regularly. You are welcome to read the REVIEW.

BABOR is stocked at selected salons and sold online HERE.

In all honesty, at first I was afraid that BABOR may be one of those brands that sell the idea of luxury with its hefty price tag and fancy packaging; and not much else. But I am glad to say that all of the products that I have tried (especially the fluids) are of exceptional quality and have proven to be highly effective. This is a brand to be proud of.
