Let’s be honest, finding affordable natural skincare can be hard. But, it doesn’t always have to be! If you look around, there are lots of natural skincare products on the market that are affordable and actually really good. Like the next person, I like to save money, so finding good skincare products that work and don’t cost an arm and a leg is always great.
Natura Siberica is one of those affordable natural skincare brands. They are a Russian skincare brand established in 2008 and sell a range of skincare and beauty products with a range of different price tags. Starting from £3 such as face creams, shampoo and conditioner, serums and even caviar face cream! All of their products are cruelty free and suitable for vegans.
A couple of weeks ago, Natura Siberica kindly sent me their limited edition Summer Essentials box. The summer essentials beauty box contains 5 full size products worth over £40 as well as some free minis. It’s priced at £25 and you honestly can’t go wrong with it. It’s a box full of luxurious cruelty free beauty goodies, and who wouldn’t love that? It’s the perfect pamper box for summer time. So, what exactly is in the Summer Essetials box?
Rhodiola Rosea Day Cream for sensitive skin with SPF20
Rhodiola Rosea, commonly known as Siberian Golden Root, is famous for its fantastic adaptogenic properties. It effectively protects skin from environmental impacts, to leave it feeling supple and soft. SPF-20 protects skin from dehydration and sun spots. I love a face cream with SPF in it! It’s so important. This is a great day cream for summer which feels light and non greasy.
Oblepikha Foot Cream
The Oblephikha foot cream is designed to keep your feet looking and feeling soft and hydrated. The Altai sea buckthorn cream butter together with shea butter, deeply moisturises and nourishes skin leaving you with soft feet, nobody likes the feeling of dry, cracked feet, do they? This foot cream really does keep your feet feeling soft and its perfect for summer time since its sandal season!
Oblepikha Conditioning Spray
My favourite product in the box! Oblepikha Hair Conditioning Spray will Nourishes your hair and refreshes it with essential moisture, protecting it from heat exposure during hot styling whilst repairing damage in hair structure. It was even on Holly Willoughby’s must-have summer beauty essentials last year. I really love this product. It smells so lovely and its easy to use! Just a quick spray left my hair feeling a lot softer. I sprayed it on the ends of my hair mostly, as thats where my hair is very dry however spraying it all over your hair will definitely leave your hair feeling soft and silky. I was honestly surprised with the results of this product as it works instantly! This is definitely going to be a summer essential for me. I’ll be making sure to take this to Florida with me in a few months! With the humid and hot weather in Florida this will be a god send and my hair will definitely be thanking me! Humidity and my hair just don’t go well together. My hair can sometimes feel like straw when I’m on holiday due to the heat and the sun so I’ll be taking this wherever I go! A little goes a long way with this product. You don’t need to spray loads of it for it to work. I’m really impressed with this and I will definitely purchase this once mine runs out.
Exfoliating Face Scrub
This gentle face scrub with Sophora Japonica and Arctic raspberry delicately exfoliates and removes dead skin cells, while stimulating the regeneration processes. Apricot Seeds gently exfoliate skin, while Arctic raspberry extract soothes it. Another good one! When I tried this I was a little bit apprehensive because I have sensitive skin and sometimes my skin can break out from certain products randomly, especially with exfoliating skincare products. This one however, is not too harsh and basically, doesn’t leave you feeling as if you’ve got no skin left on your face! It was gentle enough for my sensitive skin and I’ve had no breakouts. So far so good!
Rich Siberian White Body Butter
I’ve got to admit, I don’t use body butters / body moisturisers as much as I should do. It’s actually been a little goal of mine to start to use body moisturisers more. This rich and luxurious moisturiser contains iberian cedar and Red juniper oils help improve blood circulation, Siberian fir oil to rejuvenates and soothe the skin, Altai oblepikha and Arctic cloudberry oils to protect the skin from environmental impacts leaving it feeling soft and enhancing its natural glow, Wild beeswax which acts as an excellent natural moisturiser and Adaptogenic Limonnik Nanai which is highly beneficial for the skin due to its anti-oxidant properties and is rich in vitamins E and C. So much goodness inside of one tube! This body butter didn’t leave me feeling sticky or greasy, and it dried quite quickly which is a massive plus. The best thing about this body butter is how soft it leaves your skin. I used this last night after a shower before bed. Fresh sheets, freshly showered and freshly shaved and moisturised silky smooth legs, literal heaven!
I’m really impressed with the Summer Essentials box from Natura Siberica. It’s such good value for money contains so many amazing cruelty free products with amazing ingredients. It’s ideal for anyone who is looking to try natural skincare products or wanting to try multiple products.
These products were kindly gifted to me by Natura Siberica however all options are my own.
