Natura Siberica is the first Certified Organic beauty brand whose products are based on wild harvested herbs and exclusive natural ingredients from Siberia.
Their Northern Collection range contains a unique blend of activated charcoal and wild harvested Siberian berries and herbs. Known for their deep cleansing benefits, combining these ingredients together works to extract toxins from your skin.
When these first landed on my desk I was instantly intrigued by the range of products. From micellar water, to masks and even cleansing butters and soaps, there was something for everyone. Not to mention that the smell of the products was also quite pleasant (well nearly all of them were).
White Cleansing Butter
This white cleansing butter contains a sensitive blend of ingredients, along with Zinc Oxide for balancing excess sebum, Organic Linen Oil to deeply moisturise, Organic oils of Siberian Pine and Altai Sea Buckthorn to leave skin soft and resilient, and Wild Siberian Juniper to add freshness and vitality.
The cost of the tub is $29.99, which is pretty reasonable. Considering that a lot of other makeup removers I’ve used retail for $50+, this one is affordable. It includes 120mL of product, which should last a few months, as a little does go a long way. But in regards to the size I do wish that it was a little larger, so that it did last me longer. But that’s just me being super picky.
Online it says that it is suitable for removing eye makeup, but on the actual packaging it says to avoid using on the eyes. I did use it a few times just to remove some mascara, but personally I’d rather just use my Face Halo to remove my shadow. I just found this information a little conflicting, so I guess you can personally decide whether to use it on the eyes or not.
Out of the four products from the Northern Collection, this one is probably my favourite. I just love how effortlessly it removed my makeup, and also how it didn’t irritate my skin. In fact, it was so nourishing that it felt like it was moisturising my skin as I was removing my makeup. It was a nice change to some harsher makeup removers I’ve used. Plus, it also smells really nice. I can’t put my finger on the exact scent but it was almost like a mixture of cocoa and coconut.
It also comes in a black / charcoal version, which I’d also be curious to try to see how it compares to the white version.
Detox Soap for Deep Facial Cleansing
The detox soap was carefully created after studying ancient recipes of the Northern Nenec, Selkup, and Khanty people. These recipes were used to assist with preserving health, amazing vitality and youthfulness.
The soap includes mix of activated carbon charcoal for absorbency and a mix of wild herbs and berry extracts.
- Oblepikha Oil softens, tones, nourishes, and improves skin elasticity
- Limonnik Nanai provides protection against the environment for the skin.
- Siberian Cedar Oil contains vitamin E and vitamin P, which contribute to moisturising, and strengthening the skin, all while regulating the renewal of skin cells.
- Flax seed oil has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties.
- Extract of Dwarf Birch buds moisturises the skin, promotes its regeneration and restores the natural colour and firmness of skin while leaving it soft and supple.
- The extract of Cloudberry contains vitamin C, Omega 3 and Omega-6 acids, and has anti-oxidant effects. It restores the skin and protects it from external influences.
- Bilberry extract stimulates metabolic processes in skin cells, improves tone and elasticity
- Sakhalin Raspberry seed oil has bactericidal properties.
This detox soap retails for $39.99, which seems expensive. But considering the research into the product and the ingredients included, it’s pretty well priced.
Unfortunately, even after trying this a number of times, I’ve not been able to get this to work for me. Firstly, the fragrance is a little too strong, almost like a floral perfume. Secondly, it’s a little too rough on my skin, which causes a bit of irritation and almost made my skin feel dry. I really do wish that I’d been able to love this product, but sadly I just don’t think it works for me or my skin. I think this may come down to it being suited for combination / oily skin and my skin being dry to normal.
Northern White Purifying Facial Mask
The purifying facial mask works to cleanse and restore the skins balance. While the white clay assists with removing excess sebum from the skin and makes the skin’s texture more smooth and radiant. While the Wild Siberian sage works to tone and nourish the skin. The mask has been specifically formulated for those with normal and combination skin.
It retails at $22.99 for 80mL of product, which is fairly standard for a mask.
However, again I do wish that it was a bigger tube. I just found I needed to use quite a decent amount of product do cover my face, so I’m just worried the 80mL wouldn’t last me long.
At first I thought this was a clay mask formula, but after applying it, realised that it had a hydrating cream like formula. I was a bit thrown off by this, as I had myself prepared for a drying clay mask. But was kind of excited that it was cream, as I don’t have many masks with this type of formula.
After removing, my skin was left looking glowy and radiant. It also felt smooth and brand new. Although, I thought that it might have left my skin feeling dry or tight, it didn’t, which was a welcome bonus. Often when I’ve used masks like this in the past, my skins been left feeling tight, which I’m not a fan of.
Charcoal Cleansing Micellar Water
The charcoal micellar water has been formulated for daily cleansing of both the face and eye area. The formula contains a mixture of charcoal to draw out impurities, with organic extracts of Melilot, Wild Northern Cloudberry and Limonnik Nanai to infuse the skin with vitamins and moisture, while assisting with stimulating renewal.
It’s overall benefit is to leave the skin looking and feeling healthier, toned and rejuvenated.
It retails for $19.99 for 200mL of product. Although, there are a large amount of cheaper options, I still feel like this one is good value for money, considering the ingredients and skin benefits.
I haven’t actually tested this one out yet, as I have so many micellar waters open currently. However, when I do try it, I’ll be updating my thoughts on it here.
Overall, I’m impressed with Natura Siberica’s Northern Collection, and would probably purchase some of the products again, specifically the white cleansing butter.
Have you tried anything from this Natura Siberica range? Or any products of theirs?
