Taking care of my skin has never been a huge priority for me. Well, unless you count trying to get rid of zits back in high school…
Inching closer to 40 has made me rethink my skin care, especially how I clean and moisturize my face. I’ve been more diligent about putting moisturizer on each night. After years of using the same face lotion that I’ve used since college, I’ve started checking bottles, comparing their claims…wondering which might help make those lines near my eyes disappear.
And then there’s the soap. Could using regular soap to wash my face each night being drying out my skin like all the commercials say?
With so many choices, and not enough time to read them all (after all, kids in the shopping cart like to keep moving!), I was excited to try the Sea Buckthorn Facial Cleanser from Sibu Beauty.
The Buckthorn berry is a key ingredient in Sibu Beauty’s products. What’s so special about that? The Buckthorn berry contains the elusive Omega 7, in addition to the more common Omega’s 3, 6, and 9. All four of these work together to provide cellular support for healthy skin, hair, and nails.
The first thing I noticed when I opened this product was the scent. Some products are just too over-powering. Sibu Beauty’s facial cleanser has a very light, almost citrus scent. (It actually helps me wake up in the morning!)
The next thing I noticed was the itty-bitty micro particles that give your face a gentle exfoliation. I’ve tried a few exfoliating products in the past that have felt like you were rubbing sand paper all over your skin. This was completely different!
Something else I love about this cleanser is that it is sulfate-free. So many products contain sulfates, something I never looked at until my mother developed a pretty severe allergic reaction to all types of sulfates. As an extra bonus their products are cruelty free and vegan friendly.
