Borba: Does It Really Work?

image from

A few months ago, I was lucky enough to find Borba drink packettes on super clearance at ULTA. Prepared to be shocked and amazed. Each of these 60-count boxes generally retails for $100. I bought 2-60 count boxes for $9.99 each. I know, right? I'm one of those people that hates the taste of water by itself and I'm contantly on the look out for drink mixes that I enjoy. To combine that with some skincare benefits would be awesome (and at a price even less than I pay for Crystal Light at the supermarket)!

Well, I've finished my supply of regular individual drink mix packettes and started drinking the Borba, though not regularly. However, I'm going to start religiously every day and see if I notice any major changes in my skin and document them right here on Jeweled Thumb! Aren't you excited?

"Lychee Fruit: High in Antioxidant Vitamins C & E

For reference: I have combination skin with rosecea, dermatitis and hormonal acne. Dry cheeks, oily chin, switch between oily and super flaky and dry forehead and nose.

12/4/09: I start the test with a few blackheads on my nose, small patches of breakouts around my chin and some flaking around my eyebrows and cheeks.

Disclosure: I obviously purchased these myself. =)

@Nico: Absolutely none, which is why I haven't done an update. Which I guess I should do now that you mention it. =)
