Sibu Beauty Exfoliating Scrub Review

26 Mar


I love a company that cares every aspect of the environment as well as beauty. Sibu Beauty happens to be one of these companies. Their products embrace two main components: the buckthorn berry and omega 7 fatty acids. The Sea buckthorn berry is known to withstand severe cold by producing an array of powerful nutrients. With over 190 bioactive compounds, sea buckthorn is an unsurpassed source of Omegas 3, 6, and 9. Omega-7 has an essential fatty acid vital to collagen production and healthy skin, hair and nails. They sent me their exfoliating scrub to review.

Company Description- ‘Our sea buckthorn exfoliating scrub, with omega 7 fatty acids, deep cleans pores to reveal fresh and radiant skin. With apricot, sea buckthorn and aloe, this emollient scrub is ideal for twice a week exfoliation.’

Sibu Beauty Exfoliating Scrub Review

First of all, I love the scent of the scrub. It smells like warm apricots and the fragrance reminds me of the fruit that we pick up at the farms in the Hamptons every summer. It’s soft, inviting and wonderfully soothing. If you’re into aromatherapy the scent is sure to win you over.


The exfoliating scrub is on the thicker side and contains lots and lots of chunky seeds to help get rid of of the dead skin cells. Although the directions say that you get best results when you use it two times per week, I prefer to exfoliate only once a week so I stayed with my usual routine.  While the seeds are larger than the ones in many of the other scrubs that I’ve used I found that the Sibu Beauty exfoliating scrub worked gently to remove the dead skin cells. It didn’t scratch my skin or leave it feeling irritated at all.

Once I washed all traces of the scrub off of my skin, I immediately noticed that my cheeks had a beautiful healthy pink glow. My skin as a whole felt completely smooth and hydrated.

Now check out the ingredients used to make the Sibu exfoliating scrub:

Water, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Seed Powder, SD Alcohol 40-B, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Polyglyceryl-3 Stearate, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Seabuckthorn) Fruit Extract, Cetearyl Phosphate, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Seabuckthorn) Oil, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Seabuckthorn) Seedcake, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Sodium Levulinate, Cellulose Gum, Sodium Phytate, p-Anisic Acid, Orange and Lemon Essential Oils. No dairy, wheat, gluten, sodium, yeast or preservatives.

Besides the fact that they deliver results there are a few more reasons that I respect Sibu Beauty:

  • they strive to use natural ingredients to make their products
  • they use recycled plastic
  • paraben free
  • they are Forrest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified
  • they are Ashley Koff approved (Ashley Koff identifies products that lead to a healthy lifestyle)
  • they are PETA vegan and cruelty free
  • they are GMO (genetically engineered crops) free
  •  founder Bruce McMullin established the Tashi Foundation, a non-profit philanthropic organization designed to provide financial and resource support for the impoverished people of Tibet, where Sibu sea buckthorn berries are exclusively harvested.
  • the owner and his wife are members of the “executive committee” of Choice Humanitarian

I had a great experience with the Sibu Beauty Exfoliating Scrub and would definitely use it again. You can purchase it at
