Luxurious news from Babor just dropped and I tried two of the exclusive hand labelled bottles whilst away on our holiday. 

The Serum, 2750 SEK/30ml partially consists of three active ingredients found in the depths of the ocean; Micro Algae AP is claimed to counteract fine lines and wrinkles together with glycocéane GP3 and termophilius which are both deep sea microorganisms working hard to get your skin glowing. I find its light texture and slightly marine scent elegantly appealing. 

The Mask, 2150 SEK/50ml has the same active ingredients and is best used as an overnight mask. It's light in texture and for me personally it was a total lifesaver after a long day in the strong sun. I would say that this is a mask for all skin types and I would absolutely recommend it. However, do remember that what works for me might not work for you and vice versa. 

As for the serum it's too early to ponder over results, but I will get back to you with my thoughts in about 4 weeks. Babor is a fabulous brand and it rarely lets me down. If I remember correctly, the only products I've tried in the past that were not for me were the rich textured creams. My skin simply needs lighter formulas and lucky me, they make those too.
