One Stop Christmas Hop Spotlight: #Sibu Beauty #Review


I've had the pleasure of trying out Sibu Beauty's Sea Buckthorn products and have been itching to try out the rest of the line.  If you haven't heard of them yet, you're missing out. Take a look at my previous Sibu Beauty skin care products review to get caught up to speed.

Sea buckthorn berries are kind of like a magical berry that grows wild in Tibet. They've been used over 28 centuries due to their antiaging, wound healing and nutritional properties; long before they discovered that these berries were full of omegas 3, 6, 7, and 9, vitamins A, B, C, and E, gluten 3, and have powerful antioxidants.
I was sent the Sea Buckthorn Cellular Support, Balancing Facial Cleanser, and Seed Oil to review.  The Cellular Support provides nutritional support for skin and mucous membranes, organic, kosher and 100% natural. It increases vitality and may even prevent weight gain. It beautifies you from inside out. I've been taking two capsules a day as it recommends and while there is no particular flavor, it comes in a container of 60 capsules (30 day supply). With winter coming up, this will be great to protect my skin and even make it better in the winter harshness.

The Facial Cleanser is an all-natural balancing non-foaming facial cleanser that gently removes dirt, impurities and make-up. I really enjoyed the cleanser. Light and mildly fragrant, there are invisible microparticles that allow for gentle exfoliation. It did quite well in removing my make-up as well and left me feeling clean and refreshed.

The Seed Oil is a 10ml bottle, therapeutic grade and can be used as a topical treatment to aid in the relief of skin conditions like rosacea, acne, eczema, dermatitis and other skin problems, helping to restore damaged skin to normal. Since it is an oil and therapeutic grade at that, it does smell quite strongly. You use 2-4 drops in an affected area and rub it in. Its an oil, so expect it to feel greasy. Good news is that it absorbs quickly and can be used on all skin types and ages, including children. I was using this on my SO's damaged skin. The serum had worked wonders but there were some areas that were really bad before  the serum left so I had been rubbing some oil in every day and its been healing much better than I had imagined. I'm actually thinking his skin should be all healed within another week or two. Sibu Beauty has really been great to work with and offered 1 of my readers the chance to win these 3 items.

That cleanser sounds great! It's difficult to find one that's gentle, yet still removes all of your makeup. When you find one that works, it's a keeper! Thanks for posting this.

I have always heard that vitamin c was good for the skin and i think this sounds like some wonderful stuff for people with skin problems.

I love exotic oils! I use tea tree oil and I love it! I would love to try Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil to compare! Thanks!
