Sibu Beauty Review and Giveaway!

About Sibu
The journey to create a successful company can be as arduous as scaling a Tibetan mountainside, but well worth the view from the top. Bruce McMullin founded Sibu in 2003 after series of events led him to Calcutta, India where he crossed paths with an ayurvedic specialist in Chinese plants and herbs. In passing, this expert mentioned a powerful holy fruit, the Sea Buckthorn berry.
From there McMullin’s quest took him to new heights, figuratively and literally, as he journeyed to some of the most remote locations of the Himalayas to find the superior source of Sea Buckthorn that is the foundation for all Sibu products.

What is Sea Buckthorn?
High in the Tibetan Himalayas (12,000 feet above sea level) grows a tiny but resilient fruit that resists the harsh weather conditions and high altitudes. The sea buckthorn berry 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. (

Does This Product Really Prevent Weight Gain?
I do not really know if it helps prevent weight gain. However, I can tell you this. When I am taking these pills I have noticed a reduction in my appetite. I definitely am excited about that! I usually love my late night snacks which can be very bad for you, and now I do not snack at night after dinner. Additionally, I discover myself eating a lot less during the day and my servings are not as large as they used to be. I think this could be the ultimate resolution to these fad diets and healthier too!
Other Health Benefits
Constipation can be a problem for many. The Omega-7 fatty acids help keep the lining of the intestinal tract lubricated by secreting mucus so everything can pass through easier and quicker. When our intestinal tract is not well, it can become dry. If one was to take 500mg of sea buckthorn capsule daily it can help with constipation issues.

*MSRP* $29.95
My Verdict
When I saw this at first I thought oh gosh pills? I am not a pill taker and was sure I would forget to take these daily. I surprised myself and have been taking them except I did miss a day or 2 in between. Sibu Cellular Support Soft Gels are wonderful! I know it may take weeks to see dramatic results. However, I have noticed some slight results already. My skin feels softer and my hair looks healthier. I have digestive problems due to having my gall bladder removed and I have noticed my digestive system has improved. They do not call Sea Buckthorn the super fruit for nothing! If you do not see results immediately do not be alarmed. You do need to give this product a few weeks to notice more intense results.

My Verdict
I think this product is fantastic! My daughter now that she is a teenager has a real issue with pimples on her face. When this product arrived, I told her how to use it and advised her to apply it with a q-tip instead of the dropper that it came with. I think being able to swab it in the areas is easier. I did not think the smell was bad as I think it just smells like oil. The color is orange but to be expected as the Sea Buckthorn fruit is orange in color. It is a slight oily, which again should be expected, as this is an oil product. It does absorb well into the skin in roughly 30 minutes. I have had Eczema problems as a child and growing up. I am currently eczema free, however, I will be using this product if I have any flare ups. I think this is a great product to help resolve skin conditions.

My Verdict
I cannot tell you enough great things about this product. I first want to tell you that this product does not smell bad at all. The repair and protect has a light citrus orange scent. This facial cream is very light and does not feel heavy on the face. I use this facial cream every day and it makes my skin feel smooth and soft. My skin can be very drying at times and I do not like to put heavy moisturizer on my face, so this one is ideal for me. In addition, while using this product it does not feel like you have a moisturizer on your face. One would think by reading the ingredients of this product that it would not work for acne problems, however, repair and protect from Sibu miraculously helps fight acne conditions. My daughter has used this product and her acne symptoms have dramatically improved. After using this myself my skin has become much softer and the dryness that I get on my cheeks have improved.

My Verdict
This is one of my favorite products that I use every day. This bottle is very easy to use as it has a pump and you just pump a small amount in your hand and dispense evenly on your face and neck. The texture is non-greasy and may be looser to some that use a heavier serum on their skin. The Sibu hydrating serum is very light and has a nice orange citrus scent. Once applied it absorbs within 1-2 minutes into your skin leaving it radiant and feeling beautiful.

My Verdict
This is my favorite product to cleanse my face with. Every morning when I wake up and every night before I go to bed I use this product. Dispense 1-2 pumps in your hand, add a little water to your hand, and rub together. The consistency is creamy and not foamy. I rub this all over my face and neck area. The texture is a tiny bit grainy but not rough due to the exfoliating beads to take off the dead skin. After rubbing over my face for a couple minutes I wash off with warm water and finish up with the Sibu Hydrating serum giving your skin an illuminating glow.
