Sibu Skincare Review

I was given a great opportunity to review this wonderful skincare and I am so very grateful that I did. I have to admit I was a little skeptical about the bar of soap because we are all under the assumption that bar soaps dry out our skin. Well, that is far from the truth and you have to do some research and digging to find out which ones are better for you. I was able to review 2 products from Sibu Beauty:

1.) Cleanse & Detox Sea Buckthorn Facial Soap
2.) Repair & Protect Sea Buckthorn Facial Cream

I am very fanatical and careful with my skin because of having hypothyroidism, my skin is always dry and does flake occasionally, although more on my arms and legs. But my face can get very dry. I also have stomach issues as alot of you know and I know I do not get the recommended amount of fluids that I should.

The first day that I washed my face with the bar of soap the first thing I noticed was the smell. It has a citrusy lemony smell. I always wet my face first because most cleansers or soaps don't lather very well. Then I usually will wet the bar of soap and then proceed to go all over my face. I want you to know when I did this with the Sea Buckthorn Soap, I had so much lather I looked like I was trying to shave!!

I kid you not, it does not take much and I guess all the oils that are in the soap help it lather up better because I was like, oh, my god, look at all this lather. But one side benefit I got from all that lather is my face was shiny, squeaky clean and the most important thing, it was smooth!

The Cleanse & Detox soap was made to awaken your skin and wash away whatever toxins and stress you acquired during the day. This bar of soap will cleanse, detox, moisturize and repair the skin while creating a protective barrier against UV rays and damaging free radicals. If you live in the city, this is something you really might want to check out.

This soap is 100% natural and made for all skin types with the added bonus of being able to inhibit bacterial growth! Now, you tell me, is that not worth it? I gently ran my hands over my face when I dried my face off and it was nice and smooth and had that clean and shiny look to it.

After I finished washing my face I applied the Repair & Protect Facial Cream. It was not heavy and had a very light creamy feel to it. This is a daytime facial cream that helps to boost collagen production and create a healthy natural moisture barrier. I can tell you when I put it on it immediately soaked right into my skin.

Remember, I have very dry skin and usually any light facial creams will do that to me. The difference is that the other creams vanished at that point and I could not tell I had put anything on because my skin basically devoured it. The Sea Buckthorn Day Cream actually penetrated but also stayed on my face to keep it smooth. I don't use much makeup anymore since I found mineral loose foundation and before I used these products the powder would stick in certain places and I would have to try and rub it around.

That did not happen with this facial cream. I was able to apply my mineral foundation and light shimmer (I use instead of blush) and I had the most natural looking skin that I have ever had, well, except for when I was a teenager.

I went on Sibu's blog and on there is a video that Dr. Oz made explaining how the medical world is beginning to see how important Sea Buckthorn is in our lives. He gave an illustration using mice and one had the Sea Buckthorn in its diet and the other one did not. The mouse that did not have it in his diet was like 3 times bigger than the mouse that had it mixed in with his food.

You have got to go see this video! It will be on the website at the very top of the site and you will see "watch video" so that you can see for yourself. And from what I understand from my friends, if Dr. Oz says it is so, then you can take it to the bank. So, I am guessing Sibu Beauty must be very pleased to see that doctors are actually proving that Sea Buckthorn does have some very good benefits for us on the outside and on the inside!

Sibu Sea Buckthorn Berries are:

*All Natural *Full of Omega 3,6,7,&9
*Wild-Crafted *Natural Source of Vitamins A,B,C & E
*Easily Sustainable *Gluten Free

Sibu has an array of products for just about everything you will need to keep your skin looking great from the inside to the outside. They have liquid supplements to revitalize & renew along with pills that have sea buckthorn oil with omega 7 to help with cellular support.

They do carry night creams, body creams, eye cream, hydrating serum, a balancing facial cleanser if you prefer that over the detox bar of soap and they also have Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil to help relieve the symptoms of rosacea, acne, eczema and dermatitis. It is safe to use on children. It is touted as a Traditional Asian Beauty Treatment.
