Being a natural oil freak, I was pleasantly surprised to find an all-in-one natural oil product which not only works as both a cleanser and a moisturizer but has other benefits to the skin as well.

It is called Living Libations Seabuckthorn Cleansing Oil and Moisturizer and users of different types of skin and conditions seem to love the change it brings to their skin.

A lot of companies create beauty oil products but they are actually full of synthetic ingredients and chemicals which affect their quality, purity and effectiveness of the final product and can actually have negative effects on the skin or even irritate sensitive types of skin.

Having a prone to blemishes skin myself, I am always after good natural oils that can both nourish and balance my skin´s oil production.

Up to now, I have been using jojoba oil for some quick cleansing at nights which is good for keeping blemishes away although coconut oil is also good for acne prone complexions, but Living Libations Seabuckthorn oil is different and more effective as I will explain further on in this review.

What is this Product All About?

Living Libations Seabuckthorn Oil is a cleansing and moisturizing oil which improves the appearance of different types of skin. Users with prone to blemishes skin report that it works well to reduce skin blotchiness and heal breakouts. It can control oiliness and reduce pores.

In the cases of dry skin, it is effective in moisturizing well and making skin less dull. For people who actually have combination skin that turns into dry during the Winter, this oil works great for the entire face.

People who are dealing with more tricky skin conditions such as psoriasis have found this product quite healing and soothing.

Since it is both a cleansing and moisturizing skincare oil that can be used on the face as well as body with positive results that can often be noticed soon after application, it makes a great skincare item to carry with you when traveling.

The fact that it is a light product that absorbs fast and does not leave much shine (but this also depends on the amount of oil you apply) makes it good for morning use. For example, there are natural oils like rosehip oil that can comfortably be applied under make up, just a couple of drops are needed to condition and calm the skin without making your face look oily.

Company Claims

This product is a combination of natural and essential oils that cleanse, tone and moisturize the skin, making it look radiant. It is suitable for all types of skin, both for the face and the body. The company claims that the ingredients are pure and wildcrafted.

Product Ingredients

Looking at the full list of ingredients, I could see that it contains only natural and essential oils with no additives or other chemical ingredients. It is also cruelty free. So, let´s have a look at its ingredients in more detail.

The first component is Sea Buckthorn Oil. The first time I heard about this oil was when I bought Pai hand cream whose main ingredient was Sea Buckthorn. So, after looking more into it, I found out that Sea Buckthorn is rich in antioxidants, pro-vitamin A, phytosterols as well as an Omega-7 form of palmitoleic acid that is rare. Apart from Omega 7, it has omegas 3, 6 and 9.

All the above make Sea Buckthorn effective in nourishing the skin and promoting cell regeneration. It also has anti inflammatory properties and can reduce redness.

Second in the list comes Jojoba Oil which penetrates deep into the skin and is good for acne, eczema, sunburn and psoriasis. Virgin coconut oil is a nourishing oil that is non comedogenic and helps promote elasticity, smooth out wrinkles and moisturize the skin.

Tamanu Oil is one oil that I have never heard before but it is said to be potent, incredibly healing and easily absorbed. The lavender essential oil is antiseptic, anti inflammatory and skin cell stimulating while the grapefruit essential oil tightens and tones the skin, refreshing it and preventing blemishes.

Vetiver essential oil regenerates skin tissues while Palmarosa essential oil balances sebum production and rejuvenates the skin.

How To Use Living Libations Seabuckthorn Oil

The way the company suggests using the oil is to first wet a washcloth with water and apply one to two squirts of it to the cloth. Afterwards, you gently massage your face or body with it and then, wash. Rinsing is optional. Some people like using an electric cleansing brush with this oil apart from just their hands.

What do User Reviews Say?

User reviews about this Sea Buckthorn Oil are enthusiastic I would say. People love the fact that their skin looks immediately a lot better after application and that this is an all in one product that they can use successfully for cleansing and moisturizing.

It removes makeup and dirt while at the same time it is nourishing. It combats facial redness and leaves the skin soft and silky. According to a user suffering from Psoriasis, it soothed her skin almost instantly.

To users with oily or combination skin, it has helped clear up some breakouts and control the oiliness while to users with dry skin, it has helped them deal with the dry skin burn and redness. One person with hormonal acne also reported that this is a healing oil which made a difference on her skin after 3 days of use.

Also, the skin looks brighter, less dull, more plump and with an improved texture. The oil feels light and luxurious, absorbs well and comes in a glass bottle. While its herbal scent smells fantastic for some people, for few others, it is not close to what they would call appealing.

One funny comment that I can´t help but mention it here came from a woman saying that when her husband noticed an improvement on her skin after using the oil, he told her that finally Botox must have worked but she replied that it was the oil.


After reviewing the Living Libations Sea Buckthorn Cleansing Oil and Moisturizer, I can say that this is a very good quality skin beneficial natural oil that its practical use as a cleanser, moisturizer as well as skin healer and rejuvenator can probably make it one of your skincare staples.
