I was recently gifted two items from SAAF and I am so grateful to have been given the opportunity to try out such an amazing brand. The items I received were:
- Complexion Boosting Face Serum
- Foot softening Balm
Before I get into the products I wanted to give you a brief overview of the brand and what they represent. SAAF is marketed as being quite simply; pure. The award winning products are scientifically formulated by the founder Dr Mah and her very experienced team of experts. All of SAAF’s products are 100% natural and they provide an excellent source of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids. They are cruelty free, vegetarian, organic, vegan and halal. I am not aware of any other brand with that many accreditations and I am truly impressed with all they represent.
The information provided about the products were taken from the website.I will begin with the complexion boosting serum.If you are not already aware serums are basically used after cleansing and before moisturizing with the intent of delivering a higher concentration of active ingredients. This might seem like a lot to take in; cleansing, serums, moisturizers, lol but it’s okay skin care is a journey and you get better at it with time. I am still learning.
The complexion boosting serum is ideal for:
- Detoxing congested skin.
- Oily and acne prone skin conditions.
- Dull skin.
- Hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone and texture.
Apply a small amount of the serum twice a day morning and evening and allow it to penetrate for a few minutes.
Safflower Oil: To increase moisture content and soothe skin irritation and itchiness.
Jojoba oil: It is protective and helps the skin retain moisture.
Rosehip seed oil: Promotes healthy skin renewal.
Black seed oil: Acts as an anti-inflammatory to help clear breakouts and smooth blemishes.
Lemongrass: Pore refining properties.
Juniper berry: Skin detoxifying and purifying effects. Aids in balancing oily complexion and helps soothe acne.
This is definitely one of the best serums I have ever tried and it has earned a permanent spot in my skin care routine. The serum is not thick at all and is very easily absorbed by the skin. Initially I wasn’t very sure about the smell but I have gotten used to it and with the results I have had so far I don’t even care what it smells like to be honest. With continued use I don’t believe you would have much use for a primer because of the pore refining properties of this serum. Prepare for even skin and gradual fading of dark spots and blemishes. I absolutely love this serum!!!!!
Foot Softening Balm
Ideal for :
- Dry hardened skin .
- Itchy irritated skin.
- Tired aching feet.
Massage into clean feet , heels, toes and ankles before bed. For particularly dry feet apply a generous layer of balm and wear cotton socks over night.
Safflower oil: Increases moisture content of skin.
Blackseed oil: Natural anti irritant. Soothes tired aching and damaged feet. Potent anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Organic Beeswax: Powerful anti microbial properties and helps soften and soothe dry irritated skin.
Olive oil: Regenerating powers that helps smooth and soften skin.
Cocoa Butter: Antioxidant properties nourishes, softens and soothes.
Neem oil: Has anti bacterial, anti viral, anti inflammatory and fungicidal properties which makes it perfect for dry skin conditions.
Lemon Myrtle: Potent antibacterial, anti fungal and anti viral agent, more powerful than tea tree oil. ( I have highlighted this because not everyone is a fan of tea tree oil and this alternative is even more powerful)
Rosemary essential oil: Has anti fungal properties that help with circulation.
I have to confess that my husband has been using this more than I have, because he has suffered with dry feet for years. For those of you who suffer with dry feet maybe you have used urea based products in the past; he did many times but they never worked. Other moisturizers we tried worked but only temporarily. This foot softening balm works perfectly. It instantly moisturizes the skin and you wake up with smooth and soft skin on your feet. My husband never really pays attention to the many products which are delivered to our door but this definitely impressed him and he isn’t easily impressed.
Overall I am very happy with both products and I will definitely need to restock when they are done. I am eager to try out a few other products from the range.If you are interested in trying out the brand they are available here. It is a wonderful brand and I promise you will not regret your purchase. As always thank you so much for stopping by.
