Makeup Wars! Drugstore Green Beauty Skincare Picks from Seabuck Wonders

 Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

When the Makeup Wars! Team decided to feature our favorite drugstore skincare picks, I decided to feature one of my favorite green beauty brands, Seabuck Wonders. Over the last few years I have received an increasing number of requests to feature more affordable eco-friendly skincare picks, and therefore this seemed like the perfect moment to highlight a really fantastic brand that is very affordable and easily accessible.

Why SeabuckWonders for your skin?

Antioxidants, vitamins A, E, beta-carotene, phytonutrients, and, of course, the all important omega fatty acids, such as Omega 3, 6, 9, and the rare 7 are all crucial components for beauty from the inside out. Sea buckthorn oil is a treasure chest of these nutrients and has been used as a secret beauty aid in Eastern Asia for over 1000 years. Taken internally or applied topically (or both!), sea buckthorn oil provides the necessary elements for ever-lasting beauty.
Seabuck Wonders Organic Himalayan Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil ($34.97 for 1 oz. from Seabuck Wonders, AmazonWalgreens and Walmart): Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil is a potent antioxidant-rich oil that is loaded with vitamins. It is a regenerative and restorative oil that heals skin, combats fine lines and wrinkles, and is said to work wonders on eczema-prone skin. It has a multitude of uses topically, and some even take it orally– though I am not among them. This potent elixir leaves skin remarkably soft, supple and moisturized. It has a very earthy aroma that smells a lot like Vitamin E capsules to me.

According to Seabuck Wonders,

With Omegas-3, 6, 9, vitamins A and E, sea buckthorn seed oil stands out as the best plant based Omega-3 source. The complex nutritional components of sea buckthorn seed oil work together to create a much more potent product than other Omega-3 sources.

Vitamins A and E are powerful antioxidants in sea buckthorn seed oil. They can support immunity and provide support for inflammatory conditions. Antioxidants are known to support healthy white blood cell levels. Omega-3 is known to support heart health. Recent studies have shown that plant based Omegas may be just as effective as fish based Omegas in supporting heart health. Omega-3 is also known to support brain health and liver health. Sea buckthorn seed oil also works wonders as a topical treatment for skin support.

Features: USDA Certified Organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, Super Critical Extract, Hexane-Free
and Kosher Certified.
Seabuck Wonders Himalayan Sea Buckthorn Facial Cream ($19.97 for 1 oz. from Seabuck Wonders, Walmart and Amazon): What a glorious moisturizer this is! It is very moisturizing and nourishing, and yet very fast absorbing. It leaves skin soft, supple, hydrated and rejuvenated.

  5. Seabuckthorn, like Ginseng, is one of my favourite skin "nourishers", as I call them. This looks like a lovely range, especially the cleanser.
