Giveaway & Review: Sibu Beauty Facial Cleanser

Thursday, September 20, 2012
Because of my rosacea, I have to be very selective about the products I use on my face. I prefer to use all-natural products because they contain less acidic ingredients. Ingredients with high acid contents have a tendency to aggravate rosacea.

When I learned about Sibu Beauty, I was intriqued by the unique ingredient, the sea buckthorn berry. I am always in search of a gentle and effective facial cleanser. So, I tried Sibu's Sea Buckthorn Balancing Facial Cleanser. All of Sibu's products are all-natural and each product is packed with the maximum levels of Omega-7 and the 190 other bio-active nutrients from the sea buckthorn berry to revitalize, renew, and replenish. The sea buckthorn berry grows high in the Tibetan Himalayas an fortifies itself against the elements by producing an array of powerful nutrients. The sea buckthorn berry is rich in Omega-7, an essential fatty acid that is vital to collagen production and healthy skin, hair and nails.



  • Available in a non-foaming gel formula that is perfect for all skin types. I have combination skin, and this cleanser worked like a charm.
  • Gentle enough to use twice per day. I experienced no redness or excess flaking that often results from cleansers when used twice daily.
  • Contains micro-particles for gentle exfoliating. Effective yet non-abrasive.
  • Removes makeup and excess oils and impurities while maintaining the skin's natural protective ingredients.

Personally, I loved the light, citrus-y smell. The micro-particles left my skin feeling clean and light without stinging or leaving a feeling of tightness. Many cleansers dry out the skin leaving it feeling tight. The best part was that it didn't aggravate my rosacea. I often cleanse my face only to be left with redness that takes hours to fade.

If you have sensitive skin, this is the perfect cleanser for you.
