I haven't posted a skin care routine in the longest time, and although I say that, this isn't one either. :P
However, what I do want to say that a crucial thing in my routine is cleansing! And adding to that, exfoliating.
To be honest, I'm not as picky with my other face products such as lotion or makeup remover. But when it comes to a face wash/cleanser I have a preference when it comes to texture and how well the results turn out. I want to feel that my face actually feels CLEAN without being over dried.
This is where I introduce a new product I have been able to try and use to you all :)
SIBU Beauty asked me to review a product of theirs and had sent me their Sea Buckthorn Balancing Facial Cleanser.
Here is a snippet about the product taken from the products' page:
The company SIBU Beauty is a skin care line where products are made from the Himalayan sea buckthorn berry which is also called the "beauty berry" across Europe and Asia. This berry has many health and care benefits for your body inside and out.
Now that you know a bit more about the company, let's get on to the review!
You can see the exfoliating particles!
The smell is a nice and light sweet citrus smell that reminds me of tangerines. But I guess that's how sea buckthorn smells haha
TRIED & TESTED
I personally really like this cleanser! My skin feels taught and clean after washing without the dryness that I tend to experience after washing my face.
I'm not hyping this I promise!
You see, my mom likes to try new things she sees in the bathroom. She saw the new face wash, tries it, then comes to me and says "say that "My mom really loves it!""
I am also adding her opinion in this review because it may help out those of you with dry skin types. Unlike me who only has dry skin just after washing my face, she has constant dry skin and good moisturizers are even difficult for her to find. But she says she likes the results of this product :)
Although the product claims to not foam, in fact, it does. Maybe not as much as many cleansers do, but for a gel wash like this one there is foaming. I personally like that though!
The exfoliating property is very helpful in this case as it may assist in removing skin cells that may be contributing to how dry one's skin may feel. I wish there were more exfoliating particles though. There aren't many as you can see in the photos but that is made up for by using an exfoliating scrub weekly.
Removal of makeup? It does quite well in this area too:
Eyeliner, concealer and eye shadow swatches are on my hand.
So here's the rundown of my opinions on this product
cleanses without over drying
removes oil/dirt/makeup residue
little amount exfoliating particles
Finally, the price of the sea buckthorn cleanser is $17.95. I'd say that it is reasonable and fair for the quality. Add it to a pro ^^
