Alright, so if you haven't guessed, I live a stressful life. I worry about a lot of things, my skin being one of them. As every day passes, I get a little older and I sprout a new wrinkle here and there. Sibu Beauty's newest line of Sea Buckthorn skin care products are designed to ease this worry of mine. Say that again? Sea Buckthorn? Ya, I never knew what it was either.
Sea buckthorn berries, more specifically, are a naturally sustainable resource, growing wild in the high altitude of Tibet. These berries are full of omegas 3, 6, 7, and 9, a natural source of vitamins A, B, C, and E, gluten 3, and have powerful antioxidants/190 bioactive ingredients in them. 2 words: Super berries. LOL, and what's better, Sibu Beauty is working together with the local villagers in Tibet, promoting fair trade.
Let's get to the meat of the material. The Sea Buckthorn series with all its powerful features are meant to treat and sooth damaged skin, promote healthy skin, and fight aging both inside and out. I actually found this next fact very cool. Did you know that this berry has a written history of more than 28 centuries (CENTURIES!!) focusing on its usage in aging issues of health and beauty? They were implemented in treating and soothing damaged skin, healing wounds from ancient battles, and even as part of a special nutritional program. Tell me, how can I not love this berry??
I was sent the Sea Buckthorn Argousier Hydrating Serum and Sea Buckthorn Face and Body Bar to review. When I saw the word serum, I was expecting a really thick texture to the fluid. However, when you read the description, it really is a light, non-oily serum. So light that I wondered whether it would really hydrate my skin at all. I was pleasantly surprised, the serum absorbs quickly and easily, leaving my skin soft and smooth. The only thing I was a bit iffy on was the initial scent, which was very strong but faded away rather quickly so it wasn't too bad. I should note that I was also testing this out on the SO as he has developed this disgusting dry, irritated skin lately. You know what? It has been helping. In our opinion, it has been helping to soothe his skin and moisturize it quite well too. Its actually looking a lot better than a couple weeks back.
The Sea Buckthorn facial and body bar was much more lighter in fragrance and I found it quite nice. It helps to cleanse, detox, moisturize and repair the skin while creating a protective barrier against UV rays and cell damaging free radicals. Isn't that great? I love how Sibu Beauty has products to help you repair, protect and nourish your skin from both inside and out and I can't wait to see what else they have in this skincare line. As one of my buddies would say, "Looking good, feeling good."
