Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know which cream is right for me?

The key to both creams is our active ingredient TFC8®, it helps the skin look and feel restored, regenerated and renewed. Both creams are equally as effective however each formula has a different texture to serve different needs and personal preferences.

The Rich Cream has an intensely luxurious formulation for deep hydration and ultimate skin replenishment. With argan oil, avocado oil and evening primrose oil that provide deeply penetrating moisture, The Rich Cream brings back elasticity to the skin, helps to promote healthy skin that looks plumper, feels soothed and is more supple. We would recommend this formula for dryer skin types, it is also ideal for night time routines and offers the ultimate shield against dry climates.

On the other hand, The Cream has a fast-absorbing and weightless formulation that helps keep skin plumped with luminous hydration with soothing aloe vera. The Cream targets the signs of aging and is perfect for normal, combination and oily skin types. Ideal for a daytime routine, The cream leaves your skin feeling refreshed and soothed especially in humid climates.

Customer Reviews

I’ve been using The Rich Cream at night and I can feel and see a difference in my skin. My skin tone has evened out and my make up goes on so much smoother than before. My fine lines are a lot less noticeable.

Rebecca M

Love AB! The Rich Cream hooked me 6 months ago. Just started using the toner and it’s perfection. Ordering the body balm next.

Mary Ellen B.

I get a glow like no other. Especially when used with the oil. I find using both Rich Cream and oil combined, it gives me the most nourishment especially for my dry ageing skin.

Rachel D.

My skin texture has improved since I started using the cream/rich cream two years ago. My skin is plump and stays moisturized throughout the day and I no longer get dry spots by my nose and chin.

Jemima O.

I did a great deal of research before purchasing because I have very sensitive skin. I wanted to make sure I was making an investment in a quality product the would improve my skin. The Rich Cream is amazing! I can already see and feel the benefits in a short period of time.

Barbara G.

Simply the best cream ever, the only one that actually does what it says and even more

Erica T.

I love the product and the results. I went from using four different products and now just use The Rich Cream. So simple and so effective.

Terry C.

I have sensitive skin with frequent eczema flare ups. The Rich Cream is very soothing and helps minimize the redness and cracking. It’s also virtually the only cream I can use in my face during flare ups. In addition, my skin looks amazing when it’s not affected by a flare up and I receive many compliments. I’m happy to share information on my skin care with anyone who asks.

Marci M

I have been using your products for close to two years. My skin continually improves and I have comments on how lovely it is. It's all due to your incredible formulations. I won't stop using them. Thank you.
