I am ALWAYS on the hunt for more natural skin care. Kim and I recently came across the Sibu Beauty company and I have been really impressed with the research I have done on them. All of their products contain Sea Buckthorn which is a berry that fortifies itself against the elements by producing an array of powerful nutrients. With over 190 bioactive compounds, sea buckthorn is an unsurpassed source of Omegas 3, 6, and 9. And it’s a rich source of the elusive essential fatty acid, Omega-7, an essential fatty acid vital to collagen production and healthy skin, hair and nails. All four of these Omegas are critical in providing cellular support for healthy skin, hair and nails. You REALLY need to check out the info they have on their site about the science behind how it works and AMAZING it is for your skin! I always love finding new products and am fascinated with the way that they have used this berry which I had never even heard about!
Currently, I am using the Sibu Age Defying Eye Cream. I have to say, I am kind of addicted to eye creams. I have been using them forever! Not sure why, it is just one of those things I always felt I needed :) My eyes are super sensitive and a lot of eye creams burn my eyes and aren’t very pleasant for me to use. I have loved using this product because I have not had ONE issue with the area around my eyes. It feel very gentle going on and I haven’t had any sensitivities which is great for me! It was moisturizing going on, yet not thick. It ranks a 1 on the cosmetic database which is always a great thing!! You only have to use a tiny amount for your under eye area so I know the tube will last me forever! Here is a description from their website:

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.
Really, they had me at “Holy Fruit of the Himalayas” . Can I get me some of that please?! Sounds pretty cool to me! They have a ton of other products, including the Daytime Facial Cream which Kim wrote about last week. All of their products are USDA Organic, Paraben-FREE and Cruelty-FREE. No dairy, wheat, gluten, sodium, yeast or preservatives. Their sea buckthorn is sourced through fair trade agreements with local harvesters in Tibet. Gotta love it!
