Cleansin' Wednesday: Sibu Balancing Cleanser

What is Cleansin' Wednesday, you ask? Click here to catch up!

I'll be reviewing the cleansers in my beauty cabinet for the next few weeks. Not all cleansers and skins are created equal so I will try my best to keep other skin types in mind as I roll through my cleanser collection. Today's subject is by Utah-based all natural skincare company Sibu. Sibu  products are natural and cruelty-free. 

The sea buckthorn balancing balancing cleanser is gentle, cleanses the skin well and leaves it feeling fresh and clean. It smells like their hydrating serum (which I mentioned before on YouTube and it's a good one), a very very faint slightly herbal scent, it kind of reminds me of aloe. In terms of texture, it is a pale yellow gel with small exfoliating beads in it. I know the beauty community is either pro/against physical exfoliants such as beads but these are so gentle they'll suit even the more sensitive skins. 

It doesn't create a thick lather but at the same time removes all traces of makeup. I like to keep this cleanser in the shower and use it in the morning to give my face a good massage and to get that blood circulation going for the day. If you're wandering around Whole Foods or the natural beauty section at your local grocery store, check this baby out. Especially if you're sensitive to sulfates/parabens/synthetic fragrances as this contains neither :) 

This was kindly sent to me as a PR sample, but I have purchased Sibu from Whole Foods or Rexall before (if you live in Canada).

I'll see ya next wednesday!

  1. I think that by the end of this series I will have purchased every single one of the cleansers, this could be a problem but least I'll have really clean skin! Xo

  2. Nice review......sounds like a great cleanser......xoxoxo...^_^

  3. Ooh, this sounds like a great cleanser! Nice to know I can snag it at Whole Foods. Oh- and I bough the Toleriane cream cleanser at your suggestion and have been loving it so far :)


  4. I've never heard of this brand before but it sounds great. I actually prefer ones that don't lather up so much x xo
