Product Review: Sibu Beauty

IMG_00000337I’ve been thinking about this post for a few days now.  I couldn’t figure out how to explain that I have no beauty regime.  I think I never got into beauty products either because I didn’t go through a teenage acne phase or because I’m just lazy.  I used to make sure I put on sunscreen every morning.  When I lived in colder climates I used a night time moisturizer and moisturizing cleansing cloths.

Lately, its been soap and water.  A couple of  sunburns during my morning runs has made me realize that I need to get back on the wagon.  My eczema is also flaring up because I have not been applying my eczema cream.  I just needed to start taking care of my skin.

As a poor yoga teacher my options are limited. My options are further limited by my sensitivities to fragrances and harsh chemicals.  The gym that I teach at has been selling some “natural” products for someone who had to close down a health store due to illness.  This means that the products are priced to go.  I thought about getting the colloidal oatmeal to help with my eczema.  When I looked in the display case I noticed a cleanser and hydrating serum from Sibu Beauty.

I paid $5 EC dollars for each product. What a steal!  The cleanser is listed at $17.95 and the hydrating serum $39.95.  I started using it right away.  I wanted to make sure that I would not have any sensitivities to the fragrance  or another ingredient.  I am glad to report that I did not wake up with a swollen face, stuffy nose or any other adverse effects.

I have used it intermittently since last Wednesday and I am just blown away.  After less than a week my skin feels softer and smoother, my complexion has evened out and the rough patches of eczema have almost disappeared completely.  All this and no greasiness or heaviness.  I did not expect such drastic results.  I thought at most I would have a nice smelling reason to wash my face at night.  I am very excited to keep using these products.  I hope one day I can use more products from Sibu.  You can see all their products on their website http://www.sibubeauty.com.

From their website:

“Sibu Beauty, premium skin care products [are] made from the Himalayan sea buckthorn berry. Known as the “beauty berry” across Europe and Asia, sea buckthorn contains over 190 bioactive compounds that restore, revitalize, and protect youthful beauty – from the inside-out AND outside-in. These hardy berries help nourish skin, hair, and nails with powerful antioxidants and essential fatty acids, including the rare Omega 7 – a key building block to healthy skin, hair, and nails, and also aids digestion and may help you maintain a healthier weight. Sibu Beauty features luxurious natural skin cleansers, moisturizes, and other topical treatments as well as dietary supplements that beautify and protect from the inside-out.”

I have never seen a sea buckthorn berry and I am not sure about its powers.  I do know that my skin feels better than it has since I was a teenager.  I’m so glad that I tried an unknown product.  If you see me looking young and youthful in my pictures, know that it’s not just my great genes but also Sibu Beauty.
