Now that we’re past the holidays, I’m really trying to not spend money. However, a couple days back I was walking through Costco and I was considering repurchasing the Egyptian Magic moisturizer because I recently ran out of one of my facial creams, but I happened to walk through on a day when SebaMed had set up a table in the store and was offering some deals on their skin and body care products.
I’ve tried a few SebaMed products before (see a couple of them here), and I’m definitely a fan of the brand. They’re pretty affordable and sold in places like Walmart, CVS, Rite Aid, and Bed Bath & Beyond, and I’ve generally found their products to be really solid.
The table at Costco had a bunch of different sets on display … 2-packs, 3-packs, family packs, as well as individual products. I was specifically interested in a facial cream, and the brand has two of them, a basic one and a Q10 cream from their Age Defense line. Both the Q10 facial cream and their Q10 eye cream normally sell individually for $29.95, and they had a 2-pack both products for $35. So, yeah, that came home with me.
First off, I thought I’d go ahead and share the roadshow schedule that they gave me. In the case that you’re in California, you can check it out if you like. I found their table entirely by accident, and I’m guessing the tour will extend beyond California so I don’t really have all of the info, but I just wanted to share what I do have.
The Age Defense line advertises to provide a visible reduction in fine lines and wrinkles in 28 days. The cream includes co-enzyme Q10, panthenol, and vitamin E; the eye cream includes co-enzyme Q10, phytopeptides, shea butter, avocado and almond oils, sodium hyaluronate, and natural bisabolol.
I only have initial impressions of the products so far and will review them in the future. My first impressions have been good ones, as they have really pleasant textures – fairly substantial, smooth, and creamy without being heavy or greasy. Nice looking ingredients lists, too. Packaging is basic, but the cream is in a glass jar with some heft to it, which is nice.
If you do decide to try some of their products, I really recommend their basic body lotion. It sinks into skin quickly and has a distinct, clean and gentle scent that I absolutely love. The body lotion was the first product from the brand I ever tried, and the scent is a powerful memory trigger for me.
The representative also gave me a few product samples. I have the body lotion, moisturizing cream, and the two green ones are the face & body wash for sensitive skin, I believe. I’ve used the cleanser in the shower and was really pleasantly surprised by how gentle it was, which is a quality I really appreciate.
Update: I wrote brief reviews of the moisturizer and eye cream in an empties post here.
If you’re interested in finding other places that sell SebaMed, you can check out their store locator online. They offer product ranges for clear skin, sensitive skin, dry skin, age defense, and baby, and the brand is cruelty-free. Have you tried any of their products?
