I haven’t reviewed a lot of SAMPAR products in the Advice Sisters What Works Beauty, Cosmetics & Fashion review columns (I think our last SAMPAR review was in the Spring of 2006), but I remember liking the product we did review. SAMPAR’s products are the result of over 20 years of research. They specifically focus on dealing with the protection of your skin against every day pollutants and toxins that attack the skin, strip the vital moisture reserves and promote premature aging.
Utilizing their unique Urban Active Complex and blending high levels of powerful natural active ingredients SAMPAR’s Essentials line has five steps that help to detoxify, rebalance and relax the skin. The Urban Active Complex contains three key ingredients, natural extracts from shea butter, mint leaves and plant and milk sugar.
This is all great. The products used together, create a must-have skin care routine. But if you travel regularly, you don’t want to have to take five products with you.
Enter the Good weekend Kit . This is SAMPAR’s answer for those who travel. The little kit, nicely packaged in a cardboard box, features five, oxygen-free (to prevent contamination), pump top bottles containing 0.135 fl, oz. of one of the five, Essentials products. This is enough for a weekend or a couple of applications. Even better, you can use, and toss the empty bottles, so you have room for another memento of your trip on the way home! The Good weekend Kit meets the size requirements of the TSA so you won’t be hassled, hopefully, at the airport.
Here are the Five Essentials in the kit, and what they do for your skin:
Velvet Cleansing Milk : Suitable for all skin types, this light, silky cleanser combines the Urban Active Complex as well as lime-blossom and rosewater, both rich in tannin, to fight free radicals and leave skin feeling soft and refreshed.
Skin Quenching Mist: This alcohol free mist, rich in natural essences moisturizes, refreshes, and detoxifies the face while soothing the skin.
Equalizing Foam Peel: Equalizing Foam Peel contains a potent combination of the Urban Active Complex, essential oils and natural Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s) to actively fight skin asphyxiation by gently removing dead skin cells and stimulating new cell growth. Skin is left toxin free, refreshed and revitalized.
Ultra Hydrating Fluid: The Ultra Hydrating Fluid strengthens the skin’s natural restructuring mechanisms, thickening the stratum corneum and reducing water loss by up to 19.5 percent after only 48 hours. The product is light as a feather and smells like roses. I am already hooked on this product!
Nocturnal Lifting Mask: it contains 95 percent active ingredients, the results of the Nocturnal Lifting Mask can be seen after the first use. Skin is firmed, lines and wrinkles reduced and features become clearer. This powerful moisturizer acts throughout the night, plumping and tightening the skin.
A kit like this is a great way to sample the SAMPAR line. And, priced at $25.00, it will make a great gift for a woman or a man, come holiday time (it pays to think ahead).
