Happy Birthday to Me & Happy Whatever to YOU! *Review & Giveaway*

It's my Birthday.  Ok, well SATURDAY is my actual birthday but I will be too busy singing my heart out on the Songs that Make Us Sing Saturday Blog Hop...come back tomorrow and "party" with us!

Birthdays have always been a big deal around least for me, read I like all the attention to be on MOI...LOL!  I have never, I repeat, NEVER felt "my age" (I'll be 38 years old tomorrow but I feel like I am about 25 or so).  I suppose that's a good thing but there is no denying that I am, in fact, aging (gracefully, or at least I'd like to think...LOL!) when I look in the mirror.  Those little fine lines are starting to develop around my eyes and mouth and not just when I smile either.  A wrinkle or two as crept in and settled here and there and the frown lines on my forehead would make you think I'm either a mean person or a worrywart. I am neither.  Point being, I have decided to give myself the present of taking better care of "ME" this year.  Two ways in which I plan to do this are:

1.  Getting healthy (stay tuned for future posts on this's a BIGGIE!)
2.  Taking care of my skin, read slow down the aging process.  Au Natural, of course.

So, when I was contacted by a representative at Sibu Beauty to review their Sea Buckthorn Daytime Facial Cream I jumped graciously accepted the opportunity.  For the record,  I have been a longtime "user" of another well know beauty line's moisturizer and in all honesty my expectations were not at all that high.  Once I am committed to something I really like and trust,  I rarely if ever "jump ship" but I am also not against "stepping out" into the unknown from time to time to try something new.  And I am very happy I did.  I am loving this product!

The first time I squirted a dollop of cream on my hand I was lovin' the faint but distinct smell of the Sea Buckthorn Berry and then when I applied it to my face I was amazed at how quickly it was absorbed into my skin.  For a moment, I was certain I hadn't put enough on but the smoothness I felt told me otherwise.  After a few applications I noticed that the cream didn't disappear as quickly which indicated that my skin wasn't as dry as it was just a few days earlier.  Can you say FA-bulous?!?!  That being said, it does get absorbed and it leaves no greasy aftermath (which I hate), I can apply my make-up almost immediately after application, something I can't say about the product I have been using for YEARS! 

 I think I'm hooked....I'm "jumping ship"! *GASP*  I am looking forward to seeing what "repairs" it may help with and the "protection" it may provide over long time usage.  I'll keep ya posted!

I strongly encourage you to go check their website won't be disappointed!
