Babor Anti-Stress Set

When I went to Life House Spa recently we were kindly given a Babor travel set to review. The set comes presented with all the travel-sized products in a compact zipped bag and is suitable for sensitive / stressed skin in need of protection. The bag contains Hy-Ol Cleanser, Phtyoactive Sensitive Cleanser, Anti-stress jetlag cream and Scentao Relaxing Shower Milk. This is a great set to try before buying more expensive full size products are the samples are very generous in size.




There are two cleansers in the set: the Hy Ol  and Phytoactive which at first glance I was unsure why there were two cleansers in the set. The cleansers work together in a bi-phase deep action cleanse that combines both natural oils and water  to gently remove impurities without leaving the skin feeling tight. The Phytoactive contains herbal essences of lime blossom, hops and balm mint to calm and relax the skin. First apply the Hy Ol (4 pumps) to dry skin, then smooth over 2 pumps of Phytoactive and massage into the skin with slightly damp fingertips until a milky emulsion is formed. Rinse with cool water. I really like this two-step cleansing routine, although I must admit it would be easier if the products were mixed together? 


Anti-stress jet lag cream protects the skin for 24 hours against nervous stress and signs of fatigue - this would be great to use on a long-haul flight. The cream is very rich and you only need to use a small amount, it sinks in skin nicely and smells like coconut sun-cream! This is perfect for me as I tend to travel on long journeys frequently which can be tiring and stressful. The cream promises to re-balance, calm and restore the skin.
The Scentao Relaxing Shower Milk was my favourite product of the set - it smells amazing! It's a creamy foaming shower milk and has a citrus scent - a nice comforting thai 'spa like' scent which is relaxing yet refreshing. My skin felt super soft afterwards without applying moisturiser.


This kit was £30 but is now half price £15 here -which is great value! Have you tried any Babor products?
