Vegan Beauty Low-Down – Beauty from the Inside from Vegan Lifestyle Magazine

Vegan Beauty Low-Down - Beauty from the Inside

I personally believe that beauty is more than the makeup you wear or how you style your hair. Beauty is a lifestyle. The things that you consume and how you treat your body can have a big impact on your appearance, attitude, and health. Treating yourself right in all aspects in incredibly important. While we would all ideally be getting all the nutrients we need from the foods we consume, sometimes we need some extra help.

My regular Vegan Beauty Low-Down column in most recent issue of Vegan Lifestyle Magazine talks about the best supplements that can help your beauty routine. It features items from R.L. Linden & Co, Sibu Beauty, Perfect Fit by Tone It Up, and Aloha.

Sibu Beauty Balancing Facial Cleanser Review

[maxbutton id=”1″]
Sibu Beauty Balancing Facial Cleanser Review

A good facial cleanser is hard to come by. I have combination skin – meaning it’s dry in some places, normal in others, and can be oily in others. Because of this a lot of cleansers simply do not work for me. They are too drying or not effective enough. When Sibu Beauty sent me their Balancing Facial Cleanser, I admit that I put off trying it at first. Once I used the Replenishing Night Cream and saw positive results, I was curious about how this cleanser would effect my skin.

Claims: “This all-natural balancing facial cleanser gently removes dirt, impurities and make-up while maintaining a healthy balance in your skin without compromising its natural protective nutrients.”

Ingredients: Water, decyl glucoside, coco betaine, sd alcohol 40-b, lauryl glucoside, hydrogenated jojoba oil, carrageenan, glycerin, phenethyl alcohol, sea buckthorn fruit extract (hippophae rhamnoides), sea buckthorn seed oil (hippophae rhamnoides), panthenol, coco-glucoside, glyceryl oleate, xanthan gum, sodium levulinate, sodium phytate, sodium anisate, fragrance (from orange and lemon essential oils

Pros: Cruelty free and vegan formula. Easy pump bottle. GMO free. Subtle fragrance. Foamy lather.

Cons: As with all pump packaging, it can get clogged.

The Verdict: As I mentioned in the beginning of this review, I have combination skin. Switching cleansers is difficult because I never know how my skin will react. It responded wonderfully to the Sibu Beauty Balancing Facial Cleanser! I used it morning and night and, in combination with other Sibu products, this is honestly the best my skin has ever looked. This cleanser removed even the most stubborn makeup without being drying or irritating. My skin always felt soft and smooth after washing, not at all dry or tight. This is one of the best cleansers that I have used and I would recommend it to others with sensitive or combination skin.

Sibu Beauty Replenishing Night Cream Review

Sibu Beauty Replenishing Night Cream Review

Any long-time reader of Logical Harmony will know that I am constantly on the search for a good night cream. Since your skin repairs itself while you sleep, giving it some extra TLC at night should be an essential part of any skin care routine. Recently I received the Replenishing Night Cream to review from Sibu Beauty. This skin care line utilizes the sea buckthorn berry. This berry is high in omegas 3,6,7, and 9. This essential fatty acids are vital to collagen production and healthy skin, hair and nails.

Claims: “Designed to protect your skin’s natural lipid barrier, our sea buckthorn night cream will help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while helping to noticeably reduce visible sun damage.”

Ingredients: Water, sd alcohol 40-b, glycerin, cetearyl alcohol, behenyl alcohol, caprylic/capric triglyceride, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, stearic acid, polyglyceryl-10 pentastearate, sea buckthorn seed oil (hippophae rhamnoides), olea europaea (olive) fruit unsaponifiables, phenethyl alcohol, sea buckthorn fruit extract, (hippophae rhamnoides), limnanthes alba (meadowfoam) seed oil, hydrolyzed rice bran protein, butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter extract, panthenol, brassica juncea (brown mustard) sprout extract, brassica oleracea acephala sprout extract, brassica oleracea botrytis (cauliflower) sprout extract, brassica oleracea capitata (cabbage) sprout extract, brassica oleracea italica (broccoli) sprout extract, wasabi japonica root extract, glycine soja (soybean) protein, oxido reductases, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, cucurbita pepo (pumpkin) seed extract, hyaluronic acid, xanthan gum, sea water, sodium stearoyl lactylate, sodium anisate, sodium levulinate, sodium phytate, fragrance (from orange and lemon essential oils)

Pros: Cruelty free and vegan. GMO-free. Fair trade ingredients. Durable and recyclable packaging. Lightly scented formula. Thick and creamy, but not oily. Works for all skin types.

Cons: None.

The Verdict: The Replenishing Night Cream from Sibu Beauty is a product that I would purchase and suggest to others. After two weeks of daily use, I was able to see a noticeable improvement in my skin. Fine lines and wrinkles aren’t a concern of mine yet, but I strongly believe in being pro-active about skin care. Using this night cream did improve the tone and texture of my skin. I can imagine that it would also reduce fine lines as well. It absorbed quickly and was not at all greasy. I woke up with very soft and supple skin that felt nourished and refreshed.

Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthorn Liquid & Cellular Support Supplements Review

Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthorn Liquid& Cellular Support Supplements Review

Supplements that target your hair and skin and are free from animal ingredients can be quite difficult to find. Especially effective supplements. Sibu Beauty sent me a liquid and gel supplement that was made to help hair, skin, and nails. This supplement combo was said to have an amazing combination of Omega fatty acids, antioxidants, and rich in phytosterols, polyphenols, amino acids, carotenoids, vitamins and minerals.

Claims: The liquid supplement claims to, “Improves skin tone and texture, supports hair and nail growth, abundant source of omega fatty acids, powerful free radical scavenger, and supports sustained energy levels.” The cellular suppor supplement claims to, “Repairs and rejuvenates damaged cells, powerful free radical scavenger to fight the aging process, and increases vitality.

Ingredients of the Sea Buckthorn Liquid Supplement: Sea buckthorn fruit puree, apple juice from concentrate, white grape juice from concentrate, acerola fruit juice from concentrate, evaporated cane juice, banana puree, sea buckthorn seed oil, natural flavors, xanthan gum.

Calories (25), Total Carbohydrate (6 g, 2%), Dietary Fiber (1 g, 4%), Sugars (4 g), Vitamin A (337 IU, 6%), Vitamin C (7 mg, 10%), Omega 3 (63 mg), Omega 6 (76 mg), Omega 7 (134 mg), Omega 9 (123 mg), Carotenoids (1.2 mg), flavonoids (5.3 mg)

Ingredients of the Cellular Support Supplement: Non-GNO starch, glycerin, carrageenan, maltitol, water.

Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil Blend (1000 mg), Organic Sea Buckthorn Fruit Oil (800 mg), Organic Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil (200 mg)

Pros: Cruelty free and vegan formula. All natural ingredients. GMO-Free. Fair Trade ingredients. Lots of Omega fatty acids. Sea buckthorn is high in antioxidants and the only plant in the world known to contain essential fatty acids 3, 6, 7 and 9.

Cons: The flavor of the liquid supplement may not be for everyone, but you can easily add it to juices and smoothies.

The Verdict: When I first received these supplements I admit that I was a bit skeptical about if they would actually work or not. I’ve gone on kicks in the past of taking pre-natal supplements in hopes of it helping the health of my hair, skin, and nails but never saw any real results. I took these two supplements together every day and was really impressed! I definitely noticed that my nails were growing faster and stronger. My hair seemed to be in better condition and growing a little faster as well. My skin was looking better and better. I would say that I definitely saw a lot of positive results from taking the Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthorn Liquid Supplement and Cellular Support Supplements. I’m now hooked on them!
