I asked BABOR to select a few items they would like to recommend for this holiday season, so women and men alike can look fabulous and glamorous this holiday season.  Products BABOR feels will transform your facial skin into healthy, radiant, glowing skin so you can shine throughout the holidays.  BABOR made some very fine choices.  So without further a-do, here are some of BABOR'S outstanding products for the season:

Oh my goodness, this is one rich, thick, luxurious face cream and so much more!  This is like a vitamin filled drink for your skin and you will immediately feel the ingredients going to work on your skin to provide it with the hydration and nourishment that it needs.  I love a nice thick cream, my skin cries out for it.  This is one of the finest face creams I have used, ever.  It has a soft fresh clean scent that is pleasing as you apply the cream.

A little bit of this highly effective cream goes a long way.  I like that it is a thicker consistency cream yet it leaves no greasy residue or sticky feeling to my skin.  It absorbs quickly leaving just a slight trace of moisture to the surface of my skin.  This jar is going to last me well into the new year.  In just a few short weeks I am already noticing a significent change in the texture and look of my skin.  It has a youthful glow and dewiness to it.  A luminous sheen that looks healthy and alive.  I am so pleased with this product and I want those of you who are looking for an exceptional face cream to consider adding this product into your daily skin care routine.  I've been using this morning and night and it goes on silky smooth and leaves my skin feeling that exact same way!

The ultimate solution for demanding skin with wrinkles and expression lines.

- Innovative formula with unique applicator
- Visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Complexion appears smooth and even...

This ultimate wrinkle filler effect balm effectively reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles thanks to triple-active hyaluronic acids and high tech peptides.  These relieve microtensions in the skin and minimize annoying expression lines.  In addition, an innovative formula fills wrinkles with an instant visible effect leaving the skin looking smoother and youthably fresh.


Again, another highly effective product that is going to instantly transform the look of your skin.  If you have fine lines and wrinkles, especially those darn expression lines, then this is the product you will want to always have with you.  I know for me, when I am stressed and tired, the wrinkles that I do have look even more noticeable and pronounced and that is when I want this product the most.  I will especially want to use it for occasions when I am going out to socialize and be with family, friends and people in general!  Using a small amount of this product quickly and easily fills in the areas around my face that has wrinkles and you won't even notice the product is on your skin when you are done.  It dries invisble.

Applying this product is a piece of cake because of the expertly designed applicator.  As with the eye cream, you simply push the button at the base of the pen, and just the right amount of product comes through the flexible spatula-like application enabling you to be able to precisely apply the product directly in the wrinkle area and spread it in like spackle on a wall!  It dries almost instantly and voila, your wrinkle is gone!  Well, ok, not forever, but for the time being!  You can apply this on plain skin or over makeup, your decision.  I actually applied it over my foundation and it worked it's way through to fill in my wrinkles with just one sweep.  I highly recommend this product and again, as with all BABOR products, a little bit goes a long way and works wonders on your skin.
