You’ve probably been hearing a lot about Sea Buckthorn lately. Dr. Oz has been touting the Tibetan berry for its rejuvenating qualities. Full of antioxidants, essential amino acids, Vitamin E and Omega 7, Sea Buckthorn is reported to keep skin youthful. Sibu Beauty is a popular brand that features products made with Sea Buckthorn. Torontonicity was recently offered several Sibu Beauty skincare products to sample including the Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthorn Exfoliating Scrub, Sea Buckthorn Purifying Mask and Sea Buckthorn Cleansing Face and Body Bar.
Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthorn Exfoliating Scrub, $19.95, is a gentle scrub that contains Sea Buckthorn, apricot seed, aloe and orange and lemon essential oils. It can be used every 3-4 days. The scrub is not too grainy, so it’s good for sensitive skin. I found it left my skin feeling really soft and I loved the natural fragrance.
The Sibu Sea Buckthorn Cleansing Face and Body Bar, $6.95, left no noticeable residue on my skin and again, left my skin feeling smooth. It also has a pleasant scent.
I was most impressed with the Sibu Sea Buckthorn Purifying Mask, $29.95, since this mask is gentle and appropriate for all skin types including sensitive skin. The Purifying Mask is applied to the face in a thin layer and is easily removed with a wet washcloth, unlike some other masks. You don’t have to leave it on for long: I left the mask on for 15 minutes then removed it. It left a smooth, silky finish to my skin.
I am really pleased with the Sibu Beauty Products Sea Buckthorn line. They are gentle enough for my sensitive skin and contain natural ingredients. They are also reasonably priced. Check them out for yourself.
