Natura Siberica Skincare Review
Natura Siberica have become one of my holy grail skincare brands. I have reviewed various products from them already, so this time I thought we could look at their basic products, which are SO affordable. While I wasn’t exactly expecting them not to be any good, these are at the bottom end of their prices so I was intrigued! Super affordable luxurious skincare? Let’s find out!
“Natura Siberica products are based on the traditional remedies of ancient Siberian tribes. Featuring wild harvested ingredients, sourced from unspoilt landscapes, Natura Siberica work with these local tribes, bringing about positive changes in their lives.
To survive the extreme Siberian conditions, endemic and adaptogenic herbs and plants synthesize highly protective active ingredients and have extraordinary antioxidant properties. When used therapeutically they offer unique health and beauty benefits.”
“Our gentle Cleansing Mousse is a perfect everyday treatment for oily and combination skin. Its rich lather foams away excess dirt, oil and make-up, leaving skin clean and refreshed.
Rich in vitamin P, Sophora Japonica strengthens and replenishes skin while Chamomilla Recutita soothes it and protects from bacteria. Your skin will be deeply cleansed, soft, and beautifully refreshed.”
So starting with cleansing, this foam is just awesome. As someone who would usually use creamy cleansers (or face wipes if I’m feeling lazy..) a cleanser in the form of a mousse isn’t something I have tried before. It is so easy! It lathers up straight away (without being messy as I would have expected!), cleanses the skin removing all traces of makeup AND leaves skin so soft. It isn’t designed to remove eye makeup however, which brings me on the next product…
“This Moisturizing Foam is specifically designed to gently remove eye make-up without stripping or stinging the delicate eye area.
Rhodiola Rosea, highly renowned for its fantastic adaptogenic properties, deeply oxygenates and rejuvenates the skin. Daurian Lily gently soothes and nourishes the skin – promoting a healthy glow.”
This is the perfect partner to the Cleansing Mousse. It is the same format being a mousse, but this is specifically for eye makeup. I have quite sensitive eyes so can be wary using products directly in that area, but this is brilliant! It does not irritate my eyes at all and removes every teeny weeny flek of mascara. I don’t know how this works, but it does. It is genius.
“This gentle face scrub with Sophora Japonica and Arctic Raspberry delicately exfoliates, renews and restores the skin making it smooth and firm.
Extract of Sophora Japonica contains up to 30% of Rutin (Vitamin P), which stimulates regeneration processes, and regulates lipid balance. Apricot Seeds gently exfoliate skin while Arctic Raspberry Extract soothes it.”
“A gentle face peel with Aralia Mandshurica, Meadowsweet, AHA-acids and Vitamin F gently exfoliates and renews skin to improve the complexion.
Our gentle face peel reinforces the skins protective functions, making it smooth and supple. Aralia Mandshurica protects skin from external factors while Meadowsweet restores skin’s natural regenerative functions. AHA-acids gently exfoliate skin while Vitamin F facilitates cell renewal – making skin firmer and more elastic.”
So these two products are fairly similar (hense why I am putting these together). They are similar in the sense that they feel almost identical when squeezing out the tube. BUT, these two beauties definitely do different things. I can’t quite put my finger on what the differences are. I have used them separately and yes after using the Face Scrub alone my skin feels silky smooth, and after using the Face Peeling alone my skin again feels silky smooth too but in a different way. It’s a really difficult one to explain but the descripions are pretty bang on really. All of this being said, I am in love with using these as a combo. This might seem like overkill, but the two combined (I do the scrub first) give just seriously epic results. My skin looks totally different after using these, smooth and hydrated and actually “youthful”. So affordable and make SUCH a difference.
“Our Nourishing Facial Mask is perfect for dry, normal, and dull skin types.
Calendula Marigold detoxifies and rejuvenates, strengthening by improving resistance to environmental damage. Wild Daurian Rose deeply nourishes skin and protects it from dehydration. It intensively moisturises and smoothes your skin, making it brighter, firmer, and imparting a youthful glow.”
Last but not least every pamper session should be finished with a face mask. In the past I would always use masks aimed at detoxifying and unclogging pores etc. And I still do, but there is something so beautiful about gorgeous, moisturised, glowy skin. 30 is definitely on the horizon for me, so my priorities with my skin have changed somewhat recently, and this mask is just fabulous. It is SO hydrating, but doesn’t leave the skin feeling greasy. It hasn’t caused me any break outs, and leaves my face feeling and looking – in a word – healthy!
So overall I think it is safe to say I am still 100% in love with this brand. Yes the more luxurious and expensive products are definitely stunning and give ridiculous results, I am so happy that I have found these affordable alternatives to use on a daily basis. These products combined are literally transforming my skin (I noticed a difference just in a few days!) and don’t break the bank. And yes, a luxurious product here and there on a pamper night is something I will always get excited about, but these every day staple products are perfect to keep skin looking its best, every day. Another success!!
