Sibu Beauty

In a previous post, I talked about the drinkable form of Sibu Beauty, which is not only an excellent beauty-enhancing product, but it actually tastes good too. Now after trying several of their topical products, I wanted to share my thoughts with you lovely ladies.

Well first off, everything is paraben-free and cruelty-free. In addition, none of their products contain dairy, wheat, gluten, sodium, yeast or preservatives. The main ingredient in this line is the super berry sea buckthorn, which is sourced through fair trade agreements with local harvesters in Tibet (an effort the Dalai Lama has taken notice of).

My favorite product of theirs right now is the Sea Buckthorn Age Defying Eye Cream, which features sea buckthorn and pumpkin seed. This botanical blend is the perfect trifecta – it reduces puffiness, dark circles and fine lines.  Personally, I often find that eye creams seem to irritate that ultra sensitive area, but I’ve been using this one for weeks with no complaints. It’s a perfect consistency, easily absorbs into the skin and as with most eye creams, a little goes a long way. I’m so happy to have found this eye cream because I was getting concerned after so many natural eye creams irritated me!

I also love the Cleanse & Detox Facial Soap (a very sweet, earthy scent and gently exfoliating) and the Body Cream (a bright, citrus scent and a perfectly creamy consistency).

Has anyone tried any of Sibu’s products yet?

Such a Potent Little Berry

I recently discovered Sibu Beauty and tried their sea buckthorn liquid supplement. The serving size is small (1-3 ounces/day), but packs a powerful punch of tangy, sweet flavor loaded with antioxidants.  The taste is quite enjoyable and reminds me of apricot nectar with a tart twist. This bright orange fluid is said to improve skin tone, support hair and nail growth, and balance energy levels. These are strong claims, but we’re talking about a very hardy berry that somehow thrives 12,000 feet above sea level in the Tibetan Himalayas!

Why would you want to take, or at least try, this supplement? Sea buckthorn contains over 190 bioactive compounds and is an excellent source of Omegas 3, 6, and 9, as well as Omega-7 (an essential fatty acid crucial to collagen production and healthy skin, hair and nails).

Warning: stick to the serving size or else you’ll easily end up drinking this stuff like it’s orange juice!
