Product Review—Body Care: Babor Energizing Line in Lime Mandarin

Product Review—Body Care: Babor Energizing Line in Lime Mandarin



A little “me time” can never hurt a lady. One of the best ways to relax after a long, hard day at work can be treating your skin to some quality TLC. Here was my dilemma. I  was on a business trip to Michigan and ended up having to stay an extra two days due to bad weather in New Jersey. With extra time on my hands and a very nice hotel bathroom to play in, I decided to treat myself to a nice at-home luxe spa experience.

Fortunately, I  packed Babor Energizing Lime Mandarin Invigorating Body Foam and Peeling Gel in my luggage. (Yay to over packing and bringing “unnecessary items”!)

Both of these items were sent to me for review courtesy of Babor.

A luxurious, creamy body foam with Champagne pear stem cells, which are exclusive to BABOR, and a vitalizing composition of fruity mandarin and tangy citrus lime. Natural moisturizing factors and panthenol keep the skin hydrated and give it a vitalized, smooth and supple appearance.

About the BABOR SPA ENERGIZING LIME MANDARIN PEELING GEL:

500-babor_invigorating-peeling-gel

An invigorating peeling gel with a vitalizing wellness fragrance that blends fruity mandarin and tangy citrus lime. Removes superfluous dead skin cells, thus improving the skin’s ability to absorb products subsequently applied. Also contains panthenol to moisturize the skin. Leaves the skin looking smoother and more supple.

More about the Babor Spa Product Line:

The new BABOR body care collection provides a SPA experience extending far beyond a momentary indulgence. BABOR SPA combines the latest discoveries in stem cell research with exquisite fragrance compositions to create unique SPA experience.

For their latest collection, BABOR has used the ancient power of centuries old rare fruits, the champagne pear and elsberry to create an active anti-aging effect. The powerful ingredients extracted from these fruits using stem cell technology are an innovation for the world of skin care. BABOR developed them together with the Fraunhofer Institut exclusively for BABOR SPA. The stem cells found within BABOR SPA effectively protect the skin’s own stem cells and thus extend their lifespan. In this way, BABOR combines anti-aging body effects with fragrant moments of indulgence.

My Results:

While in the shower, I applied the Peeling Gel across my entire body. I let it sit on my skin for about 3-5 minutes. I then used warm water to wash the product off. Afterwards, my skin felt super soft and smooth, but not heavily oily or drenched in post- product residue. I loved that the scrub was light, but still able to remove dead skin. However, I did wish that it was a bit thicker so that I wouldn’t need to still apply some kind of post-shower oil or lotion. Like the foam, I loved the smell.

Peeling Gel:
Bling Factor:
Pro: Easy to spread across skin, non-sticky.
Con:  Left my skin feeling cleansed, but not as moisturizing as I’d like.
Price: $36.00

Next, I used the Babor Energizing Lime Mandarin Body Foam as a moisturizer. I loved the silky feel of the foam. It glided easily over my skin and could be easily rubbed into my skin. The fragrance of the product really was “awakening” and “energizing”. The fresh, light lime smell invigorated me and gave me a great burst of energy. I almost broke into a Pharrell-style “Happy” dance while putting it on.  My skin felt super smooth and soft. What I liked most about the body foam was how easy it was to dispense. Who would ever think of having moisturizer in a foam form? Pretty darn innovative if you ask me.

Even though I was stuck in a hotel room on a business trip, I  was so glad to have brought my Babor Spa products with me. They definitely helped waken my mood and provided me a spa-like feeling on a cold day.  As the line’s tagline reads, I really must agree these two products are indeed ENERGIZING. REVITALIZING and REFRESHING.
