Sibu Beauty is known for their all natural products made from the Himalayan sea buckthorn berry. They have been featured in many magazines such as For Women First, O Magazine, Town and Country, etc. Not to mention the sea buckthorn berry is being talked about in tons of magazines and on TV too! In fact Dr. Oz has called it the new “miracle berry”!
Here is some background direct from Sibu Beauty’s site:

I was lucky enough to be asked to review Sibu Beauty’s Sea Buckthorn Body Cream. Before I give my actual review let me give you a little background, taken from the site, about the product:

Sea buckthorn has been shown in many scientific and clinical studies to aid in the preservation of youthful texture, protection against sun damage, and even improvement of symptoms from eczema, rosacea, psoriasis, and burns and wounds.

Sea buckthorn is known as nature’s most balanced fruit. This “Holy Fruit of the Himalayas” has been cherished by native Tibetans for centuries for its incredible nutritive qualities. Over 120 specific studies on sea buckthorn have shown that this little berry promotes health. From sea buckthorn’s rare abundance of some of the most powerful antioxidants to being the only plant in the world known to contain essential fatty acids 3, 6, 7 and 9 – sea buckthorn has earned its title of superfruit.
Sea Buckthorn Body Cream:
- Hydrates, softens and rejuvenates skin
- Soothes sun damaged skin
- Powered naturally by sea buckthorn, meadowfarm, shea butter and aloe
- For all skin types
- Made from 100% natural ingredients
The body cream retails for $14.95 for 6 fl oz, which may seem a little bit pricey, but it’s worth it. Plus, you can always wait for one of their many sales, like the one they have going right now which gives you %15 off all of their new products (this includes the body cream).
I’m a lotion addict and whenever I buy/receive a new lotion the first thing I do is smell it. I mean who wants to put something on their body that is going to make them stink, right? Well I’m pleased to say that the Sea Buckthorn Body Cream had a very pleasant, almost citrus-y smell to it. It was very light and not overpowering at all, which is also very important to me. I’ve had perfumes that I love, but are too strong, give me headaches after wearing them all day; thankfully this was not the case here.
Another thing that makes a good body cream is one that makes your skin feel soft and smooth without feeling too greasy. This is exactly how my body felt after using the Sea Buckthorn Body Cream. I was very impressed with well it soaked into my skin and yet still left it feeling very smooth.
The thing that impressed me the most was how the Sea Buckthorn Body Cream healed a few trouble spots that I’ve had for a very long time. I’ve tried all kinds of things to heal these spots and it never worked, but only after a few applications I had seen an improvement. Which has made me a true believer in Sibu Beauty and the Sea Buckthorn Body Cream. So much so that I’m going to be making it my “go to” cream from now on and I’m excited to order and try some more of their products!
