Anyone that knows me, knows that I love to read. I bought a Kindle a couple of years ago so I could carry it with me to read on the go. Since my son was born 4 (almost 5) years ago, I have not read as much as I used to. Since school started this year, I have been able to read a few books. One of these books was Craved by Stephanie Nelson.

I was given the awesome opportunity to review several Sibu Beauty facial products. Now, I have always had a fairly decent complexion and have not worried too much about taking care of my skin. Now that I am 45, my complexion has acquired some splotchiness. One day it is dry and the next it is oily. It is very annoying to say the least. Over the past few years, I have tried several facial products to see if I could find something to help my complexion. I think this is the product I have been looking for!

Most of my life, I have washed my face with only a washrag and clear water. It seemed like every time I used any type of soap, it dried my face and left me with icky feeling skin. Enter the Sibu Beauty Cleanse & Detox Face and Beauty Bar made with Sea Buckthorn. The first time I used the bar, my face felt clean and refreshed. I followed up with the Sibu Beauty Hydrating Serum. The texture of the serum was by far more superior to any of the others I have tried. It made my face feel softer than any others I have used in the past. I used the serum, along with the Sibu Beauty Age-Defying Eye Cream, at night and the next morning, my face felt great. What I really liked was that none of the products gave me that greasy, oily feeling like most other products I have used. After using these products for the past week, my face seems much softer and feels great.

About sea buckthorn from the Sibu Beauty site: 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.

A few years ago, I entered quite a few blog giveaways on a regular basis. I finally determined that I was spending way too much time leaving comment after comment in order to get the extra entries. I finally gave up. Yes, I did win things but I was spending too much time doing so. When I decided to start blogging again, I heard of this new program called Rafflecopter as a way to enter giveaways. I decided to check it out to see how long it would take as opposed to using the comment method.

Rafflecopter got me hooked. I can enter several giveaways in the time it took me to enter one using the old comment method. I have now become a Rafflecopter snob. The only way I enter comment giveaways now is if it is something that I really would love to win. The only drawback to Rafflecopter that I can see is that more people are entering the Rafflecopter giveaways-so the odds are not as good. I will take my chances though. I have already won a few awesome prizes using Rafflecopter.

What are your opinions on using Rafflecopter vs commenting? I have noticed that not as many people are entering the comment giveaways so you have a better chance of winning them. I will stick to RC unless the comment giveaway is something I just really, really want to win. LOL! Are you a Rafflecopter snob?
