Like the other reviewers I am also a fan of this products. I was really afraid to use oil on my face for fear of clogged pores. I've tried Bio Oil for hydration and I feel like that may have clogged my pores and left my face a little too shiny and sticky. The Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthorn oil actually absorbs well into my skin. I also, daringly put some over top a busted pimple since the product claims to promotes skin recovery and healing (among other claims). Surprisingly, when I woke the next day it was significantly healed!
On a side note, the bright orange color of the oil doesn't seem to stain my face either. The smell is not citrus like I thought it would be. I already plan to buy this again before I run out.
I love this oil so much! I've been here on the mua boards complainig about my skin which is normal to dry acne and clogged prone. I have been using retin a 0.25% for about a year. My skin stayed dry, rough, and i had tons of blackheads on my cheeks despite using retin a.. my face was like this for awhile until i bought the clarisonic, started using Mario Badescu glycolic acid toner and this oil. The biggest change was after i added this oil my clogs decreased dramatically and so did the acne. My skintone and texture looks way better too. This makes my makeup look better and last longer too!
I've tried oils in the past and some (argan, avocado) worked for me for a bit and still do, but only used on an occasional basis when I need an extra boost of hydration. Used regularly, I break out from these. I decided to try sea buckthorn oil after beginning a love affair with Weleda's sea buckthorn body wash. Like the body wash, the Sibu sea buckthorn oil is really rather fabulous. About four drops used right after washing my face twice a day is pretty much all the moisture I need. I might top it off with one of the oils or with CeraVe cream a couple of times a week if my face seems dry but that's it. I was worried that the oil (which is bright orange) would turn my face orange or rub off on clothes or sheets. It has not done either. It DOES give me a really nice glow and makes me look noticeably younger. I've now switched over to using Sibu's sea buckthorn eye cream as well and am very happy with my new, easy and MUCH cheaper routine!
I love this oil. It's very light and I've noticed that it brightens my skin and evens out my skin tone. I also dab it on any pimples I get and it speeds up the healing process. I have already repurchased this and will continue to do so.
