Sea buckthorn is known as nature's most balanced fruit. This "Holy Fruit of the Himalayas" has been cherished by native Tibetans for centuries for its incredible nutritive qualities. Over 120 specific studies on sea buckthorn have shown that this little berry promotes health. From sea buckthorn's rare abundance of some of the most powerful antioxidants to being the only plant in the world known to contain essential fatty acids 3, 6, 7 and 9 - sea buckthorn has earned its title of superfruit.

My Final Thoughts:   When I'm looking for a skincare product I really try to look at the ingredients. I have sensitive skin so I want to find something with natural ingredients that won't irritate my skin. 

This product has a pleasant smell and not a chemical smell like some makeup and skincare products can have. It's not a strong smell, I had to put my hand up close to my nose to smell anything at all. It's not sweet (even though it has some orange/lemon essential oils in it I couldn't smell those really, so if you don't like citrus smells this still shouldn't bother you). My puppy came up while I was trying to take the swatch photos and wanted to take a nice deep sniff of my hand and wouldn't leave it alone if that tells you anything about the pleasant smell!

I love that it leave my skin feeling soft and smooth (you can see in the swatch photos how dry my hand is before, and then how smooth and hydrated it looks after). I did feel like it helped improve my skin texture, and made my skin brighter. I live in a very cold area so I tend to get a lot of dry, well very dry areas on my face, I did feel that this helped those areas. I will definitely continue to use this in my skin routine.

They also have several other products that you can check out as well, I haven't had the chance to try anything else but I'm definitely curious about the other skincare products. Let me know in the comments if you've had a chance to try anything from them and what you think! 

Would I purchase again?   Yes! This stuff gives me that extra added hydration I need and makes my skin soft and smooth feeling.

Do you own this? What are your thoughts?
