Sibu Beauty- Nourishing Facial Cream




Sibu Beauty maybe new to a lot of UK consumers. Made with Sea buckthorn a natural ingredient with many properties, I was kindly sent the facial cream to try. 

So it's main properties are 
Our sea buckthorn facial cream, with omega 7 fatty acids, creates the perfect barrier to moisturize, rejuvenate, repair and protect. This light, non-greasy cream is ideal for daily use and offers a pleasing, light citrus scent. It is paraben-free and cruelty-free, and contains NO dairy, yeast, wheat, gluten, sodium or preservatives.
  • Rejuvenates sun damaged skin
  • Protects against environmental stress
  • Preserves healthy skin tone and texture
  • For all skin types
  • 1 fl. oz.
  • 100% natural
This nutrient-infused facial cream is ideal for daily use, with a light citrus scent and non-greasy feel. 
This cream is packaged with a simple white box embossed with the logo. Its in a frosted glass bottle but also has a lock within the pump. So no leaks when travelling. So I have Normal to Dry skin and when winter hits is when I notice this. When I read about the properties of the sea buckthorn berry I was intrigued.

So apologies for the light the weather in the UK is grim and trying to photograph glass or an box is quite a task, especially with a flash.
 Aimed towards helping all skin types by offering a day cream to help maintain healthy skin and keep fine lines at bay.  So with winter coming and I like to have a cream with me at all times so i can moisturise regularly. Hoping to gain the upper hand and moisturise my skin sufficiently, as It helps to keep a good routine.


 Then hopefully not need to much coverage. So as with every year passing, i am noticing changes to my face. This is why I encourage having a skincare routine too women of all ages. Even if your in your early 20's, as trust me it takes more time  to fill in the lines and dry skin later in life. I wish I had started earlier on to keep my skin healthier. 


Now whilst i haven't seen much difference to my face in terms of lines, I do like that its a really good as an aid to hydration. This doesn't sit on the skin and cause it not the breathe. It's a light, durable and most of all absorbs quickly. I only required 2 pumps to cover my whole face, which was very good as the warmth disperses it evenly. I wish other creams would do this and be value for money. The colour of the cream is a light peach/ orangy to the eye with a light citrus almost peach/tangerine scent. I love this scent its so subtle and not overwhelming. Very natural and pleasant to which I always had it in my bag for days I could feel my cheeks and eyes suffering, it also moisturises the hands very well when applying. 


I have noticed that the damage in my hands is getting better, as I have loads of "broken" veins from being stabbed by dr's needles for blood tests. Half a pump rubbed in just makes them more soft and also the skin less thin looking. So I'm happy the Omega 7 rich cream could help with healing naturally, its not a quick fix but its a lovely skincare item.

Also its fair-trade where the workers whom grow and pick this wonderful sea buckthorn earn during the harvest period. They maintain it as a sustainable resource which grows high in the mountains of Tibet. This fair trade relationship ensures the villagers safe working comditions and also offer fair wages. This money to which the whole family can work towards saving, ensures that the winter passes and has kept the next generation safe and healthy for the next harvest. It has been so successful that each harvest brings a bigger wage and more resources to the people in the Himalayan mountains.
