SIBU Sea Buckthorn Beauty Review

SIBU is a line of skincare & supplement products featuring Himalayan Sea Buckthorn Berries as its star ingredient. According to SIBU, this berry has 90 bioactive compounds, contains an unsurpassed source of Omegas 3, 6, and 9, and is the world’s richest source of the elusive essential fatty acid, Omega-7, a fatty acid vital to collagen production and healthy skin, hair and nails. Traditionally Sea buckthorn berry is used for:

  • Sustained energy levels
  • Improved cellular health
  • Cardiovascular support
  • Healthy inflammation response
  • Joint support
  • Moisturizing dry and damaged skin
  • Improved immune health
  • Decrease in wrinkles and fine lines
  • Addressing eczema and rosacea symptoms
  • Using sea buckthorn oil for rosacea symptoms and eczema

I was given the opportunity to try out a variety of products and overall I would say their supplement products as well as certain skincare products are standouts from the entire line. I’ll start off with the skincare products I loved the most. Due to the large number of products covered in this post, I’m keeping it extremely concise and have added ingredients lists for each product. A ton of products on their site are on sale and my discount code ORGANICBEAUTY30 saves 30% on non-sale items.

Polishing Facial Cleanser

I was very impressed by this cleanser. It has a thick gel-like consistency but also has biodegradable jojoba beads that provide mild exfoliation. This product is especially useful at night when you’re exhausted and don’t have the energy to use a separate cleanser and exfoliation product. It didn’t leave my skin feeling stripped at all and has a fresh citrus scent.

Ingredients: Water, Decyl Glucoside, Coco-Betaine, Hydrogenated Jojoba Oil,Lauryl Glucoside, Carrageenan Ψ Benzyl Alcohol, Coco-Glucoside, GlycerylOleate, Xanthan Gum, Glycerin, Sodium Levulinate, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil,Glucose, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Sodium Anisate, SodiumPhytate, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Seabuckthorn) Fruit Extract, Citrus AurantiumBergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Oil, CitrusReticulata (Tangerine) Leaf Oil, Coriandrum Sativum (Coriander) Fruit Oil,Cymbopogon Citratus Leaf Oil, Panthenol

Exfoliating Face & Body Scrub

Another product I loved was this is creamy face scrub that is not only ultra gentle with apricot seed powder to slough away dead skin cells but smells like an apricot meadow if one exists. It reminds me of the St. Ives Apricot Scrub I used to be obsessed with but obviously much better and cleaner.

Ingredients: Water, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Seed Powder, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Polyglyceryl-2 Stearate, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Seabuckthorn) Fruit Extract, Cetearyl Phosphate, Hippophae Rhamnoides(Seabuckthorn) Oil, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil Ψ Benzyl Alcohol,Microcrystalline Cellulose, Sodium Levulinate, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, CelluloseGum, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Sodium Anisate, TetrasodiumGlutamate Diacetate, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, CitrusGrandis (Grapefruit) Peel Oil, Citrus Reticulata (Tangerine) Leaf Oil, CoriandrumSativum (Coriander) Fruit Oil, Cymbopogon Citratus Leaf Oil, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice

Sea Berry Seed Oil

100% Therapeutic-grade Sea Berry (sea buckthorn) Seed Oil, this product with just 1 star ingredient is simple yet effective. Its a very rich & deeply nourishing oil that hydrates as well as most oils that have a dozen ingredients. This is also a great oil to treat acneic skin.

Purifying Clay Mask

Like the rest of the line, this is a very gentle clay mask so if you’re looking for one that has an intense effect I would not recommend this one. But if you’d like something ultra gentle to provide a more thorough cleansing of the skin than just using a cleanser, this is great. It’s basically a creamy bentonite clay mask with some added ingredients including the star seabuckthorn berry oil and does leave my skin feeling cleaner and smoother after use.

Ingredients: Water, Bentonite, Cetearyl Alcohol, Hydrogenated Jojoba Oil, Propanediol,Glycerin, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Seabuckthorn) Oil, Kaolin, Hordeum Distichon (Barley)Extract, Cyclomethicone, Lactobacillus/Pumpkin Fruit Ferment Filtrate, Polyglyceryl-2Stearate Ψ Hippophae Rhamnoides (Seabuckthorn) Fruit Extract, Benzyl Alcohol,Phellodendron Amurense Bark Extract, Santalum Album (Sandalwood) Extract, CetearylPhosphate, Silt, Sodium Levulinate, Trihydroxystearin, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, SodiumAnisate, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Squalane,Vigna Aconitifolia Seed Extract, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate,Tetrasodium Glutamate Diacetate, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, CitrusGrandis (Grapefruit) Peel Oil, Citrus Reticulata (Tangerine) Leaf Oil, Coriandrum Sativum(Coriander) Fruit Oil, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Sterols, Linoleic Acid, Phospholipids

Clarifying Facial Toner

This product I fett paled in comparison to their other products. I didn’t really enjoy the scent and it felt like I was spraying water onto my face for the most part. I would say skip this one.

Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Inulin, Polyglyceryl-10Laurate Ψ Benzyl Alcohol, Sodium Levulinate, Sodium Anisate, Allantoin, Sodium Phytate,Xanthan Gum, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil,Algae Extract, Artemisia Vulgaris Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Laminaria DigitataExtract, Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides, Chlorella Vulgaris Extract, Citrus AurantiumBergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Oil, Citrus Reticulata(Tangerine) Leaf Oil, Coriandrum Sativum (Coriander) Fruit Oil, Cymbopogon CitratusLeaf Oil, Leucojum Aestivum Bulb Extract, Salicornia Herbacea Extract, HordeumDistichon (Barley) Extract, Phellodendron Amurense Bark Extract, Santalum Album(Sandalwood) Extract, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Seabuckthorn) Fruit Extract, HippophaeRhamnoides (Seabuckthorn) Oil

Hydrating Facial Serum

I enjoyed using this serum over the summer as it’s super lightweight and iinfused with vitamins, Hyaluronic acid and Sea Berry extract, It comes in a glass container whereas most others come in plastic so it has a nice luxury feel  to it. The product does get used up quickly.

Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Betaine, Hippophae Rhamnoides(Seabuckthorn) Fruit Extract, Benzyl Alcohol, Polyglyceryl-10Laurate, Sodium Levulinate, Xanthan gum, Sclerotium Gum,Sodium Anisate, Algae Extract, Artemisia Vulgaris Extract,Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate Ψ Sodium Phytate, HippophaeRhamnoides (Seabuckthorn) Fruit Extract, Glycine Soja (Soybean)Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Citrus AurantiumBergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit)Peel Oil,Citrus Reticulata (Tangerine) Leaf Oil, Coriandrum Sativum(Coriander) Fruit Oil, Cymbopogon Citratus Leaf Oil, HippophaeRhamnoides (Seabuckthorn) Seed Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate

Age Defying Eye Cream

This has a thick cream consistency and it does feel very nourishing when applied. If you have tried the 100% Pure Coffee Bean Eye Cream I actually found this SIBU one more thicker and creamier but it doesn’t have any detectable scent. It smoothes my fine lines and feels very hydrating.

Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Seabuckthorn) Oil, CetearylAlcohol, Behenyl Alcohol, Polyglyceryl-10 Pentastearate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride,Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Unsaponifiables Ψ Sea Water, Benzyl Alcohol, LimnanthesAlba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Sodium Levulinate, XanthanGum, Hydrolyzed Rice Bran Protein, Sodium Anisate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea)Butter Extract, Panthenol, Sodium Phytate, Brassica Juncea Sprout Extract, BrassicaOleracea Acephala Sprout Extract, Brassica Oleracea Botrytis Sprout Extract, BrassicaOleracea Capitata Sprout Extract, Brassica Oleracea Italica Sprout Extract, WasabiaJaponica Root Extract, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Protein, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice,Cucurbita Pepo (Pumpkin) Seed Extract, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Seabuckthorn) FruitExtract, Sodium Hyaluronate

Nourishing Face Cream

I would describe this as a very thick serum rather than a traditional cream like their eye cream. Naturally, it’s extremely lightweight so not a good option if you need a lot of heavy moisture. The upside is that it absorbs very quickly and ideal for summer.

Ingredients: Water, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Seabuckthorn) Oil, Glycerin, Behenyl Alcohol,Cetearyl Alcohol, Polyglyceryl-10 Pentastearate, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Unsaponifiables Ψ Benzyl Alcohol, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, SodiumLevulinate, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Anisate,Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter Extract, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Cocos Nucifera(Coconut) Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Plukenetia Volubilis Seed Oil, Panthenol,Sodium Phytate, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit)Peel Oil, Citrus Reticulata (Tangerine) Leaf Oil, Coriandrum Sativum (Coriander) Fruit Oil,Cymbopogon Citratus Leaf Oil, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice

Omega 7 Support Gels

I think this is a great addition to your existing supplement regimen. It contains 100% pure Sea Berry fruit and seed oils and concentrated amounts of Omegas 3, 6, 9 and Omega-7. For beautiful skin the omegas and vitamin C are the most important to ingest according to my esthetician.

Omega 7 Blend

Made with pure sea buckthorn fruit puree and 100% natural juices, this blend is not for the faint-hearted. It’s extremely sour but that’s how you know it’s highly concentrated. It’s always best to nourish your beauty from within so I highly recommend this product as well.

Ingredients: Sea buckthorn fruit puree, apple juice from concentrate, white grape juice from concentrate, acerola fruit juice from concentrate, certified evaporated cane juice, banana puree, sea buckthorn seed oil, natural flavors (mango/citrus), pectin, xanthan gum

Moisturizing Body Cream

I am a fan of this body cream – it’s wonderfully thick and creamy and has a sweet orange scent. I’ve used through summer as well as winter and enjoyed it in both seasons as it leaves my skin feeling moisturized. I apply it to wet skin out of the shower and it actually absorbs pretty quickly.

Ingredients: DI Water, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, SodiumLevulinate, Sodium Anisate, Polyglyceryl-10 Pentastearate, Behenyl Alcohol, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate,Hippophae Rhamnoides (Seabuckthorn) Seed Oil, Hippophae Rhamnoides(Seabuckthorn) Fruit Pulp, Fragrance (orange / lemon oils), Hippophae Rhamnoides (Seabuckthorn) Fruit Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Shea Butter, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Xanthan Gum, Olea Europaea(Olive) Fruit Unsaponifiables, Sodium Phytate, Panthenol
