Sibu Men’s Grooming Kit


Men also deserve great-looking and healthier skin. Some of the negative side effects of daily shaving include clogged pores, dry skin, ingrown hairs and redness/irritation. Many traditional shaving creams and aftershaves contain chemicals and ingredients that burn and dry skin which often lead to a scaly complexion and unwanted breakouts. Sibu’s Shaving Kit For Men is 100% natural and contains nutrient-rich, soothing sea buckthorn berry fruit and seed oils.

The 3-pack includes:

  • Step 1: Prepare – Exfoliating Scrub – Recommended for use 1 to 2 times a week. The gentle and soothing formulation removes dead skin cells, environmental toxins and helps prevent ingrown hairs for a cleaner, closer shave.
  • Step 2: Shave – Cleanse & Detox Bar – The thick, creamy lather provides a chemical-free shave that soothes, cleans, conditions and also helps to revitalize and promote healthy tissue recovery.
  • Step 3: Protect – Hydrating Serum – A soothing, no-sting aftershave that imparts healing nutrients to the surface and deep into underlying layers of skin. The natural antimicrobial properties of the sea buckthorn berry keep skin clean, fresh and hydrated without leaving an oily residue.
Don’t forget about all the other great packages with SIBU
