Natura Siberica Snow Cladonia Review

Natura Siberica Snow Cladonia Review!



I am SO happy to be writing another review for one of my all time favourite brands – Natura Siberica. It is no secret that I love this brand, so trying out a new line obviously excites me! As I have been renovating a house the last few months (hense the lack of blog posts!) some new skin care products were just what I needed to make me start feeling like a human again. The Snow Cladonia range is a collection I have not tried before, so let’s dive in!!


Snow Cladonia Day Cream

RRP £11.95

“Snow Cladonia, which stays green even during severe Siberian winters, contains Usnic Acid, a unique active ingredient which works to actively restore skin cells and effectively slow down the ageing process.
Natural Vitalayer® gives your skin a smoother texture and improved elasticity by boosting the production of Hyaluronic Acid which deeply moisturises the skin and reduces wrinkles.
Anti-ageing SYN®-AKE and SYN®-COLL complexes regenerate skin cells and stimulate collagen synthesis, renewing the glowing appearance of youth.
Wild Harvested Siberian Ashberry Extract and Organic Wheat Oil beautifully soothe and heal the skin.”



This product is literally perfect for every day use. It melts into the skin and dries down really quickly still leaving the skin super moisturised. There is no greasy residue, and it doesn’t become oily throughout the day either. It is a beautiful base to wear under make up, I only have good things to say about this product!




Snow Cladonia Face Serum

RRP £11.75

“The powerful formula of this serum contains concentrated active ingredients from various Siberian plants for enhanced effectiveness. The Snow Cladonia Extract contains the rare Usnic Acid, which works to actively restore skin cells and effectively slow down the ageing process. Snow Cladonia, which stays green even during severe Siberian winters, energizes and helps the skin to resist the external stresses that can negatively effect it.
Extract of Wild Harvested Siberian Dwarf Pine is a wonderful antioxidant, protecting skin from external impacts, while Organic Chamomile soothes and calms the skin.
Natural Pentavitin® improves skin’s smoothness and protective barriers, preventing dehydration and flaking.
SYN®-AKE is an excellent hydrator and wrinkle eliminator, which gives your skin a natural healthy glow.
Within just a couple of weeks of continued use, the serum minimizes wrinkles, leaving your skin looking radiant and noticeably younger.”



So although this is technically a serum, I have also used this product on its own with nothing underneath before bed, and it soaks into the skin (you can literally feel it working!) and wake up with beautifully hydrated skin. An absolute winner!








These two products as a duo are the ideal staple items in anyones skin care routine. They are simple and stunning. Considering my skin is definitely not looking its best at the moment, a day cream that can keep me looking presentable throughout the day at the moment and a serum for overnight to make my skin look like its actually being taken care of is a miracle in itself! The main point here though is the difference in my skin already is amazing, and that is just from using two products from this collection! I can’t wait to try more!!

The Snow Cladonia collection, along with some other products, has also just been launched in Holland & Barratt stores!

Lily Lolo Mineral Concealer Review

Lily Lolo Mineral Concealer Review

Lily Lolo Mineral Concealer Review


Lily Lolo is brand I came across quite some time ago when I first started trying to find cruelty free brands. Their collection has expanded so much since then, and they really are beautiful products. Lily Lolo Mineral Concealer is one of the first products I purchased from them, and I have continued to use it time and time again. It is so versatile and can be used in so many ways, it has become a genuine staple item in my makeup bag.

Lily Lolo Claims:
Our Mineral Concealer provides a heavier coverage to effortlessly conceal blemishes, imperfections and dark circles; you will be amazed at the staying power of such a soft delicate loose powder.


Lily Lolo’s description outlines this product perfectly. Starting with the coverage, to me it is somewhere between an under eye setting powder and a full on concealer. The consistency is so fine and soft that it literally glides over the skin – and it doesn’t crease! I mostly use mine on its own and it takes away any under eye darkness, but if I am looking for more of a fuller coverage I will use it as a setting powder over the top of a cream concealer (this results in mega full coverage!)


In regards to its’ staying power, it really does last all day. I wouldn’t say it lasts all day and all night (do any?), but because of its incredible consistency if I want it carry on into the evening I just gently swipe my concealer brush over the top and this livens it all back up. As I mainly use this alone on a day to day basis it really is amazing how quick and easy it is to apply – in a few seconds I look awake and in a word – “rested”.

The packaging? To be honest, I love Lily Lolo’s packaging in general. I think black and white along with the frosted container looks so sleek and clean. There is an internal cover to twist too, which massively helps avoiding any wastage or mess.

There are currently 4 shades to this concealer (I have Blondie) and the descriptions given on the website of the undertones are so helpful. As the concealer is fairly small to begin with there is only one size available, but a lot of their other products come in sample sizes so you can try them out before purchasing a full size (even the sample sizes are in tiny little frosted pots – so cute!).




Priced at £9.00, I wouldn’t say this concealer is particularly cheap or expensive, definitely middle of the scale. And due to its’ soft powdered formula it lasts for such a long time, which in my opinion makes it worth spending that little extra to begin with. Just think of it as an investment!
