Hope your week is flowing nicely. We are one day closer to the weekend so it can't all be bad right?
So, I am not sure if I have mentioned this on here or not (I probably have) but I have been suffering from a super dry face as of late. I have NEVER had dry skin before. I don't know if it is because the wind and cold have been especially brutal or if it's because my skin is just changing with age. (Let's just hope it's the weather)
I was contacted by the brand Sibu Beauty (Sibu Beauty )with an offer to try one of their products. I could choose between their facial cleanser or their daytime facial cream. Of course with my face acting like it was I went with facial creme. I had been trying so much I was hoping this was going to just be so awesome for me.
Cue to me going on vacation. They were mailing it out right around the time I was leaving to go to Florida. That's right, I went from the freezing cold to the 80 degree weather of Florida. I went from snow pants to shorts in a matter of a couple days. Let me tell you this, my face FREAKED OUT. I mean by the end of the trip my face was itchy and red all over. I couldn't scrub my makeup off my face fast enough that Friday afternoon. I just couldn't handle it anymore. It was just so dry, raw, and just TICKED off at me. Thankfully by the time I got back to work my package was waiting for me on my desk.
I started using it the next morning. I have been using it almost every day since (as noted by the one picture below!) After I get out of the shower I use two full pumps on my face. I let it soak into my skin while I am drying my hair. It has a light scent to it, nothing overpowering. It is lightly citrusy but also herbal.
I am happy to say that my face is not as dry as it was. It no longer feels tight and the dry flaky patches are gone. If I skip a day or two I can tell a difference in my skin. It hasn't cured my redness but my skin feels 100 times better than before. Apparently the key to all this is the Sea Buckthorn and the Omega 7 that is in this. Please go check out more about Omega 7 here: Omega 7
Sea Buckthorn is everywhere these days. I have seen it so many places.
I will insert the information directly from Sibu in regard to the specific information about this product:
"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, wheat, gluten, sodium or preservatives.
* Rejuvenates sun damaged skin
* Protects against environmental stress
* Preserves healthy skin tone and texture
* For all skin types "
I will say that yes it rejuvenated my sun damaged skin. I can't answer to the environmental stress because I don't know what that means. I think it has improved the texture because my skin was awful when I started using it. It was so red and bumpy and painful. I am not sure about the tone of it, it still seems the same to me.
This is what the bottle looks like
This is one pump on the back of my hand. As you can see it's a pretty stiff cream.
Just to show how creamy it is.
That's my opinion of this product. I seriously enjoyed it and since they have such a wide range of products for health inside and out of your body, I may look into trying more out from this brand.
