SBT Seabuckthorn Sample Pack Mini Review + Thanksgiving Giveaway!

Canadian Thanksgiving is upon us! From my computer to yours, I hope you have a fantastic long weekend filled with family and food. Don't forget to be thankful and wear your stretchy/eating pants. In the spirit of this giving holiday, SBT Seabuckthorn has graciously sent me a sample pack to try and one to give to a lucky reader. They are a Canadian company, located in Peachland, British Columbia, who create products using the amazing sea buckthorn berry, seed and leaf. Before I get into the rules of the giveaway, I wanted to share with you my thoughts on a few of the products that I've tried from the pack.

22 Samples!!
This sample pack contains 22 generous sized samples, which consists of soap bars, tea, salves, and creams. I have tried:

Tea Scrub Bar: Smells like sea buckthorn oil and offers great exfoliation. I still prefer a dry brush, but this was a fun sample to use.

Sea Buckthorn Tea (bags): I love tea and really enjoyed this. I also have the loose leaf version, which is best for smoothies, but the bags are much easier to work with and convenient. It's not super strong in taste and goes down smoothly.

Berry Cream, Night Cream, Hand Cream & Skin Cream: I didn't enjoy these. I, personally, didn't find them hydrating enough for my face or body with the cold weather rolling in. On the plus side, neither irritated or broke out my sensitive skin.

Day Cream: LOVE this stuff! It's much more hydrating than the night cream and I find it's a fantastic base for my makeup. I'm still using the sample, sparingly, and might purchase the full size. We'll see how it works after my vacay, when my skin needs the most love.

Eczema Dermatitis Salve: These salves all have the same base, just different essential oils for targeted needs. This one in particular is great because it's helped alleviate the itching and dryness of the eczema on my hands, sinks in, and smells nice. 
Diaper Rash Salve: If you follow me on Twitter, then you may already know that my underarms are raw and red from, perhaps, a new deodorant that I'm trying. So many lovely followers sent me suggestions on how to help reduce this torture going on under my arms. I remembered that I had this salve and along with aloe, it's helped reduce the redness and burning. Hopefully, it'll be completely cleared up by Sunday morning. If I had diaper rash or a baby, I have no doubt that this would work wonders.
Tea Scrub Bar, Shampoo Bar, & Sea Buckthorn Tea (bags)

Berry Cream, Day Cream, Night Cream, Hand Cream & Skin Cream

  1. Happy Thanksgiving from one Canadian to another! My most embarrassing moment would be when I was singing at a friend's wedding and I starting choking on my own spit mid song. Lots of hacking and coughing during a mushy romantic song definitely spoils it!

  2. My most embarrassing moment is probably when I vomited on my friend's shoulder.

  3. Happy Thanksgiving! My most embarrassing moment was right after I moved to the prairies and didn't realize that non-waterproof mascara plus a scarf up to your eyeballs equals complete mascara meltdown! I had NO idea my eye make-up was all over my face until I got home later that day.

  4. Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! One of my most embarrassing moments involves, alcohol, a belt buckle and broken toes. I'll leave you pondering what happened there. ;)

  5. I love your post. The giveaway sample pack is absolutely adorable and it seems like a great win. To bad I'm not Canadian. Good luck to those who did enter!

  6. Enjoy your thanksgiving! I have to say though the weather is way too warm for it to be thanksgiving already (I'm up in Ottawa). Enjoy your vacay!! :)

  7. I can't believe its Thanksgiving already, its like +20 here in the afternoons :p (I'm up in Ottawa) Enjoy your vacay! :)


  8. as for my most embarrassing moment (of which there are plenty!) . . . . ever had your butt stuck between those flappy doors, facing outwards as the bus was driving?! I have


  9. One of my most embarrassing moments was passing gas as a summer camper during an outdoor bible service while the preacher was praying! Everyone around me heard but thankfully they blamed it on my friend!

  10. Oh, there are many embarrassing moments. One involved me climing onto the back of a truck, and my pants split... There were a bunch of guys right behind me. :(

  11. When I had to go to the bathroom on the train tracks because I couldn't make it home in time. (Maggie)

  12. Most embarassing moment was when the button on my shirt in between my boobs popped & I was on the subway where everyone could see!


Thanks for the comment/feedback!
