*Product was provided by Sibu Beauty for review* 

Hello my lovely readers!Hope you all are doing great! Today I am doing a review on skin care product called Sibu Beauty's Sea Buckthorn Balancing Facial Cleanser. I love facial cleansers and how clean and radiant they make your skin look. I have never tried a facial cleanser that had sea buckthorn in it nor have I ever heard of sea buckthorn berries. I was curious and excited to see how this facial cleanser would perform on my skin. Keep reading for more information on the company, the benefits of sea buckthorn berries, review and some pictures :)

About Sibu Beauty

Sibu Beauty was founded by Bruce McMullen in 2003. He to traveled to Calcutta India where he met an ayurvedic specialist in Chinese plants and herbs. The specialist mentioned a "holy fruit"  called  the sea buckthorn berry .

After this, Bruce traveled to the himalayas to find sea buckthorn berry which is used in all of Sibu Beauty's products.

Not only is Brian a successful entrepreneur he also has been doing philantrophy serving executive choice chairman for choice humanitarian.

Sea buckthorn berries grow wild in the high altitude of Tibet. The Sea buckthorn Berries are  harvested by the villagers  which are paid fair wages,  perform  environmentally safe processing techniques and work in safe conditions.

The villager and families work in the chain of harvesting and processing.  The brief harvesting season provides enough money to sustain villagers through the harsh winter months of the Himalayas where resources are scarce. The workers are paid fare wages on the same day they pick the berries and process them. In addition, the villagers receive salary increases.

Sea Buckthorn Balancing Facial Cleanser retails at $17.95. According to Sibu Beauty, The Sea Buckthorn facial cleanser is an all natural balancing facial cleanser which removes dirt, impurities and makeup while maintaining a healthy balance to your skin without compromising its natural protective nutrients. This facial cleanser also has micro beads that gently exfoliates leaving your skin clean, fresh and balanced.

History and benefits of the Sea Buckthorn Berry

The sea buckthorn berries have been used for twenty eight centuries and were used for aging issues of health and beauty. In addition, the ancient berries were used to treat and smooth damaged skin, and heal wound from ancient battles.

Sea Buckthorn contains vitamins A, C, E, K, minerals  carotenoids, flavonoids, antioxidants, polyphenols, and phytosterols. This wonderful berry also contains 190 bioactive nutrients.

In addition, the sea buckthorn is loaded with Omega fatty acids, 3, 6, and 9. It also has a rich source of Omega 7 fatty acid. The omega 7 fatty acid helps neutralize free radicals and aids the production of collagen. Futhermore, Omega 7, 3, 6, ad 9 are all critical in providing cellular support for healthy skin, hair and nails.

My final thoughts/experience

     Over all, this has been my go to facial cleanser for over a month. I have not used anything else to cleanse my face. Before using this product, my face was going through what I would assume to be a hormonal storm where your skin gets a little bumpy and can experience some breakouts. I used this product in the morning and in the night before bed.  I took a good amount and lathered it onto my face. I just love the consistency of the cleanser and how thick it was. It really lathers up nicely and has a nice citrus smell to it. I was surprised  that it also has little micro scrubbers. Not only did it clear my skin, but whatever problem my skin was having at the time, Sibu Beauty's Sea Buckthorn Balancing Facial Cleanser cleared up my skin and returned it back to a clean healthy looking state. In addition, Sibu's Sea Buckthorn Balancing Facial Cleanser left my skin glowing, clean and so soft. I am so impressed. Usually when I use skin care products I do not notice results for about two to three weeks. This wasn't the case with using Sibu Beauty's Sea Buckthorn Balancing Facial cleanser. I was amazed to see results within five days. I was so surprised and pleased with the quick results.  Sibu Beauty's Balancing Facial Cleanser is all natural and contains no harsh chemicals. I love skin care products that are all natural. I highly recommend  this to anyone who is looking for the ultimate facial cleanser. Using this product cut my daily and night time skin care routine in half and restored my skin to a healthy, clean and balanced state.
