Prior to reading about Sibu Beauty products, I had absolutely NO idea that sea buckthorn existed, let alone had any clue what it was.
After reading about Sibu Beauty, I had to read more about sea buckthorn out of curiosity. I learned that sea buckthorn is a tiny fruit that has proven resilient in the harshest of weather conditions and in high altitudes. The berries are actually edible, and nutritious, though how palatable it may be I am not certain. Because the sea buckthorn berry has to stand up to the elements, it fortifies itself with powerful nutrients and those nutrients are great for skin, hair, and nails.
Sibu Beauty incorporates the sea buckthorn into their Sea Buckthorn Exfoliating Scrub. It is designed to deep clean pores to leave skin feeling refreshed and radiant. The exfoliating scrub also incorporates apricot and aloe and is recommended for twice a week exfoliation (although not on the same days as use of the Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthorn Purifying Mask).

When I received the Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthorn Exfoliating Scrub, for review, I was a bit nervous. I hadn’t paid very close attention to the ingredients. I knew it was vegan exfoliating scrub, touted to be gentle enough for all skin types, and cruelty free, and that was enough to convince me to review it. Then I saw the label and realized that it has Orange and Lemon Essential Oils. I hate all things orange. I can’t eat them, and I can’t stand the smell. I tentatively opened the tube and took a whiff. YEAH! It didn’t smell like orange. I had Hubs smell it, too, and he couldn’t smell any orange. While I couldn’t smell the orange essential oil, I can’t describe what it does smell like. It’s pleasant, so I don’t care.
I tried the Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthorn Exfoliating Scrub on my hands, elbows, and feet. I have horribly rough skin on those areas, and I thought that would be the best test of the stuff. I also used it on my forearms, because that is where my skin tends to be the most sensitive, so if I was going to break out, it would be there.
I didn’t have any breakouts from the scrub, and while it did make my hands and elbows smoother and softer, I think I will have to use it several times to see any improvement in my feet. No big surprise, there! This is a great product, and while I wouldn’t typically spend twenty bucks on an exfoliating scrub, if it helps my feet, I would be willing to. I think it’s going to be great to use before I go get my spray tan this spring.
