i actually received BABOR’s products in the Box 3 of the Lilac Box but i still haven’t use them yet. so i’m really glad that i got invited to this BABOR Workshop and i now have a better understanding of how each product functions and the proper way of application to maximise the effect!
BABOR is founded by German biochemist Dr. Michael Babor in 1955. and today, BABOR is one of the world’s leading brands in the professional cosmetics industry.

HY-ÖL & Phytoactive: The Art of Cleansing
HY-ÖL (200 ml) | RM 170 Phytoactive Base (100 ml) | RM 140
the ritual with HY-ÖL & Phytoactive is a celebration of purity and cleanliness – The Art of Cleansing, which was created by the founder himself in the 1950s. in his view, combining fresh water and high-quality natural oils was the ideal way to deep-cleanse the skin because it merged the ancient tradition of using oils to care for the skin with the renowned hydrotherapy techniques developed by Sebastian Kneipp.
HY-ÖL not only cleanses thoroughly and deep down without attacking the skin’s acid mantle but also restores this protective layer as you cleanse. HY-ÖL contains 100 per cent pure hydrophilic oils (soybean oil, sesame oil and peanut oil), which blend completely with cool water and thus remove oil-soluble particles from the skin. Free of preservatives, it is particularly gentle on the skin.
BABOR has also optimized the second cleansing phase, consisting of herbal elixirs known as phytoactives, which treats the skin condition during the cleansing, and increases the absorption of the active ingredients.
- apply HY-ÖL on dry skin
- circular gently over the entire face
- apply the phytoactive
- moisten your fingers with water, to emulsify the oil
- easily remove with water
Mild Peeling (50 ml) | RM 150
we then proceeded to scrub our face with Mild Peeling. it contains ground, rounded peach kernels which promotes skin regeneration and conditioning skin. we were advised to scrub our face two times a week.
make sure you cleanse/scrub your face with only these four fingers circularly, NOT palm, to reduce the pressure on your skin.
INTENS Comfort Cream Mask (50 ml) | RM 215
we then pampered our skin generously with INTENS Comfort Cream Mask which made up of shea butter and precious plant oils. these ingredients moisturizes skin intensively and regenerates the lipid mantle resulting a doi-doi soft and supple skin
that’s me masked on at the workshop . I really likey the scent of the products. soothes my face AND mind at the same time.
Spa Thermal Spray (200 ml) | RM 250
Thermal Spray – this nurturing Spray provides 100% moisture for face and body and soothes the skin. pure thermal water sourced from Aachen’s hot springs boasting with minerals and micro nutrients, refreshes and soothes the skin. spritz it on your face and pat it dry. the spray can also be applied over make-up for a refreshing energy-kick on the go! it’s alcohol-free and slightly scented.
this ampoule is highly concentrated with active ingredients which adsorb quickly upon application.
break the neck of the bottle with the plastic thingy. one whole bottle per application, pat into the skin until adsorbed, without leaving any sticky feel of the face!
HSR® Lifting Extra Firming Eye Cream (30 ml) | RM 490
as we all know, skin around eyes area are really thin and delicate, hence we MUST include eye cream in our daily regime.
with such amount of HSR® Lifting Integral Complex, this highly effective anti-wrinkle eye cream gives the delicate eye area more elasticity. in addition, an active ingredient composition made from peptides, green beans and rutin compresses the collagen network making skin look visibly tighter and smoother! this product is featured in publications such as Women’s Weekly and Queen (女人我最大).
remember to ONLY use your ring finger to dot, NOT rub! you do not want more lines than you already have okie!
Advanced Biogen Mimical Control Cream (50 ml) | RM 455
followed by moisturizer. Mimical Control Cream is an effective cream with Mimical Control peptides to reduce expression lines, your skin will look firmer and will have fresh, rosy, youthful finish on your appearance!
this is the amount of the Mimical Control Cream you need on your face!
Sun Care System (200 ml) | RM 240
lastly, if you’re out during the day, make sure you guard your face with sunscreen!
BABOR’s Sun Care System does not leave my face with sticky feeling, and my face still feel as fresh as before application, which is great!
all the attendees of the day! thanks the Lilac Box for organizing such informative workshop!
