The sea buckthorn berry thrives in the harsh conditions and high altitude of the Himalayas in Tibet by fortifying itself with protective nutrients including Omegas 3, 6, 7, 9, carotenoids, flavonoids, antioxidants, minerals and vitamins. Sea buckthorn seed oil has long been used as a topical treatment to aid in the relief of skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema, acne, dermatitis and other skin ailments. Our therapeutic grade, organic seed oil will help restore damaged skin to its natural beautiful state.
This review is for Sibu Beauty’s Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil, which is made of 100% sea buckthorn seed oil and is used as a face oil. Keep reading to find out what the benefits of using sea buckthorn and this skincare item are!
This oil comes in a glass bottle that’s nearly opaque. You get a drop applicator (with the 30ml size). The packaging for this oil keeps the product inside stable and sanitary.
The oil itself is a translucent orange color. It smells pretty strongly of sea buckthorn–which smells kind of like bitter orange. The scent can take getting used to.
The oil itself is thin. The best part of the formula is that it’s almost like a dry oil. It sinks into the skin, so you don’t have to tolerate any oily or slick substance lingering on the surface of your face. The formula also doesn’t leave an oily sheen on the skin like many oils do. This means you can use this oil under your makeup or at night.
The fact that this contains 100% sea buckthorn seed oil–without any added irritating ingredients–is also fantastic. There is some research that sea buckthorn has antioxidant properties and helps repair skin damage. Since the introduction of this ingredient to the market is pretty new, I’d suggest adding sea buckthorn in with another nighttime serum or skincare product, as opposed to using it alone.
Sibu’s price tag is also pretty reasonable. You only need a couple of drops of this oil each time you use it, so even the small 10ml bottle will last you a good chunk of time.
