Hello my lovelies, today I want to talk to you about one of my latest discoveries Sabrah Oil a Powerful, Precious & Pure Prickly pear seed oil, 100% organic, fair traded and absolutely luxurious like you deserve.
When I started my Instagram page I did not think this will happen; I only knew that I’m obsessed with skincare, I always was, and I like Instagramming. Is a hobby for me, a way to share my findings, talk about my experiences with products, because I believe there are more women like me out there!
Women’s with problematic chronically dry skin and a pretty tight budget.
Instagram was how I met and started to talk with the amazing Sonia K.
Who is Sunia ?
Sunia is a busy working woman trying to prevent her flare-ups of psoriasis, the owner of Sunia K. Cosmetiques a high-end line of natural and pure beauty products designed to work in harmony with body and mind to help women feel at ease with themselves, beginning with carefully sourced raw oils that deliver high-performance results.
Sunia K. Cosmetiques is also sustainably sourced and packaged, and fairly-produced business and as if that wasn’t enough she is also helping by creating jobs in areas of Tunisia with over 40% unemployment, reducing poverty, empowering women, and strengthening community!
She really does sound like a gorgeous soul and wonder-woman to me!
Back to the story , Sunia contacted me somewhere mid-November asking me if I would like to test her Sabrah Oil, and that was in a period that I was continually complaining about how bad my skin hates me, and how was I changing routines in hope to make things work again.
Obviously I said YES! not only because I love discovering new products brands that are just beginning their journey but also because I already liked her and her company mission and I was really really intrigued about the product.
For starters I never heard about Prickly Pear Seed Oil, although I was familiar with the fruit and because Sabrah Oil is a straightforward 100% natural product but still having that luxurious pampering feeling you only get in high-end products.
I don’t mean to be superficial talking about packaging, but for me packaging is essential; I love great packaging that makes me feel like a queen when I use it! And that doesn’t cost the earth, also very important.
Yes, is correct at the end of the day is only the product that matter, if delivers or no. I agree! But I also know that for most of us hard working crazy busy bees skincare lovers, routines is maybe the only time in a day when we get a little bit of me time, the only time in a day when we do something exclusively for us. And I believe in the healing power of self-pampering.
Sunia K Sabrah Oil comes in this beautiful matte black carton cylinder box packaging that is eco-friendly and is made with 50% or recycled paper, golden logo and details and white text containing the oil proprieties, benefits and suggested use along with a personal message from her. On the matte black background, there are some glossy hieroglyphs’, that alone will make you feel like a queen.
The oil itself comes in an all black glass bottle with a dropper having the same design elements and details like the box. Wish it came with a pump, yes, but dropper bottles are the norm these days!
Clear light oil a bit yellowish smelling like hey, with the consistency of a good quality oil not too thin not very thick. My skin drank it instantly feeling so shootee and hydrated even trough for the seek of testing it was clean skin I haven’t use any other products that evening. A few seconds later my skin felt plump and had a beautiful glow to it. Is not quite like a dry oil where no film is left on your skin, but this isn’t oily either. It just left a velvety finish and a gorgeous glow

What did I like about:
First I was pleasantly surprised by the lightness of the Sabrah Oil; my skin drank it almost immediately leaving my skin soft like a baby bum and beautifully dewy, not greasy at all.
Also, I found the smell of it very soothing! That may be because I grew up on a farm and I love the dried hey smell, but if you are not a fan of scented stuff don’t worry is not strong smell also, is the natural smell of the oil, no fragrance has been added to it.
I used Sabrah Oil both alone and mixed in my moisturizer, and I can say mixed in the moisturizer it does behave well under the makeup but the most of it I got when I use it alone.
Overall it helped me a lot with the dryness and sensitivity created by retinol ( I started using retinol two weeks ago, and m skin reacts a bit ) use in the PM.
After a few weeks of use, I noticed improved elasticity in my skin, the lines around my eyes where visibly softened and my face seems to glow, I did receive quite some compliments about it.
And I said before I love the fact that is 100% natural, and that is easy to use and luxurious. We all need a little bit of self-pampering.
What I didn’t like about
I really was unable to find something to dislike about Sabrah Oil! did I wish it came with a pump dispenser ? yes, but dropper bottles doesn’t bother me
197 USD 50 ml/1,7 Fl Oz, it is pretty up there in price, but a bottle of this will last you a long time and totally worth the splurge
Would I repurchase?
Without any doubt YES
