I had a friend check with me to see what I ‘really’ use, in terms of skincare. “I know you talk a lot about Savar, but do you really use them? Do you really love them as much as you say you do?” Surprisingly, comments and questions like these don’t offend me. I’ve come to expect them, though what is surprising is that I don’t get asked them too often. I’d like to think it’s because my friends and readers know that I only share what I truly love. Questions and comments like these make sense because there are so many bloggers and influencers talking about so many products that they “just love” and “totally recommend”.
So, today I’m sharing some of my empties. Just a few products that I’ve used up recently and will be buying more of because they form such an integral part of my skincare routine.
1. Savar Rosehip Ultra Brightening Serum. I’ve written about this serum numerous times (in fact I’ve been going on about it since 2015, here). I’ve lost count as to how many bottles of this serum I’ve gone through. If this helps…there are two empties in my bathroom and one that’s almost empty as well. It’s not that they run out quickly, they actually go quite a long way, but I’m constantly using it because it makes my skin feel so good.
2. Savar Advanced Hand Repair. This is my second empty of this hand cream. I liked it the first time I used it, but then ended up using something else, and then switched back to it. Both Patrick and Rafa use it as well, and we love the subtle fragrance. I’ll be replacing this because it’s the perfect size for my handbag (and for travel) but it usually sits on the kitchen counter so we can take care of our hands throughout the day. We love seeing our guests help themselves to it too!
3. Savar Wonderlift Eye Cream. This is only the first bottle of the Savar Eye Cream that I’ve finished, the first that I’ve had. It is actually the first eye cream that I’ve ever committed to using continuously. I’ve seen a drastic improvement in my under eye area. A few months ago I couldn’t wear concealer or foundation as my under eye area was so dry that the products just caked. It wasn’t pretty. I had to forego covering up the dark circles and actually address the issue with skincare and a few changes to my diet. This is the best value for money eye cream that I’ve come across (and I’ve looked a fair bit).
4. Savar Antioxidant Night Cream. Like the eye cream, this is the first bottle I’ve tried and have finished. I’ve used it every night for a few months now. It’s lovely and thick (not greasy) and absorbs beautifully. It’s also a product that works well when you’re sharing a bed with someone. I’ve used a few products in the past that Patrick wasn’t really thrilled about. This is effective on my skin but gentle enough to not upset anyone around me (ie Patrick and Rafa).
I cannot believe I’ve come to a point in my skincare journey where I actually use up products before they ‘expire’. I haven’t had to throw any of my Savar products out because I use them up. I’m no longer switching between a variety of products hoping something works (though I do mix and match a few, I’ll tell you about that later). And for the record, yes I really use Savar products. My skincare is almost entirely made up of their range of products and yes I really do love them as much as I say. Actually, no I love them even more than I say.
