Pamper Time With Natura Siberica!*




Having fallen in love with Natura Siberica's Oblepikha and Honey Body Scrub (which I raved about in this blog post), then their Oblepikha Shower Gel (blog post here), I was thrilled when they sent me a couple of pampering products; the Natura Siberica Active Organics Revitalizing Bath Salts* and Natura Siberica COSMOS Extra-Firming Facial Mask*.

"Natura Siberica is the first Certified Organic beauty brand based on wild harvested herbs and exclusive natural ingredients sourced from the unspoilt continent of Siberia. Founded in 2007, Natura Siberica beauty products contain natural adaptogens along with other Siberian herbs and plants which offer unique health and beauty benefits, possessing strong antioxidants and protective properties."



Natura Siberica Active Organics Revitalizing Bath Salts

'Revitalizing Siberian Herbal Bath Salt is enriched with essences and oils of Wild Harvested Siberian herbs to work youth and beauty’s magic on your skin. Immerse yourself in its exquisite, sensual aroma and discover an inexhaustible source of healing power – that of primal Siberian nature.'

I would class the Bath Salts as 'relaxing' more-so than 'rejuvenating', because I didn't feel re-awakened or enlivened but did feel incredibly relaxed and rested after using them! Keep in mind, these salts do not change the colour of the bathwater (that remains alarmingly clear) so if you don't like the sight of your naked body, take a book, magazine or your phone to distract your nude self. I had a really good stretch during my bath, stretching out my legs and wiggling my toes whilst downing my fun-size bag of Cheetos (because you gotta have bath snacks, right?). I know it's not just me! If memory serves me well, I didn't have lunch that day, so I also brought along a bag of popcorn for good measure. And probably a beer, because what's a bath without a Pure Blonde? Not worth having, that's what!

In an incredible act of foresight and planning, I miraculously remembered to take the Natura Siberica Bath Salts with me on holiday, because I knew our retreat contained a spa. Best decision ever! The entire bathroom filled with a delightful, fresh fragrance and again, I had the most amazingly relaxing series of baths with the bubble jets on! So I got a nice massage at the same time! I'd highly recommend these Bath Salts if you're stressed or just want to enjoy a fantastic bathing experience.



Natura Siberica COSMOS Extra-Firming Facial Mask

'This very gentle facial mask has been designed to correct wrinkles overnight, when the skin is most inclined to recovery and rejuvenation. The mask deeply nourishes and revitalises the skin. It also provides skin a rejuvenating effect, slowing the ageing process, lifting features, and redefining facial contours.'

This is a bit of a strange face mask, and to be honest, I'm still trying to work it out! It applies like a cream and kind of remains like a cream, except that it does soak in, but not fully, so you do have to wash it off, except it doesn't dry like other masks, so you're not removing a dry, crusty substance, but a mostly-soaked in cream. LOL. Again (and with every Natura Siberica product I've tried), the fragrance is lovely. The fact that it doesn't 'dry out' on the skin means it remains comfortable, and you may well get drunk and forget you have it on go over the recommended wait time of 15 minutes before removal (like I did), not that that will do you any harm! The first time I used this was in the bath, and it was a bit awkward trying to get it off, so I think the shower is definitely easier. Afterwards, my skin felt really soft and smooth and my pores appeared smaller, too. In general, my facial skin looked firmer so I do think this product meets its claims.

Being smack-bang in the middle of a long bathroom renovation means I haven't got as much use out of this as I would have liked, and at this point I cannot wait for the work to be finished so I can get back to my normal beauty routine and give this mask another whirl. Bring on Pamper Sundays!

  3. Those bath salts actually look quite decadent! I wonder how they'd go in a spa bath. Probably shouldn't turn on the jets ...

  9. Lovely review Di - the house I'm in currently only has a spa, and I never use it because it's as big as a swimming pool and uses way too much water. But I'm moving soon, and top of the list criteria is a proper bath so I can FINALLY stock up on some of the goodies I've been reading about here, especially a trip to LUSH - I'm going to CRAZY, but I want these delish sounding bath salts too xxx

  12. Hi.. when applying the mask do you get a 'stinging' feeling on the face which then goes away?

    1. No I never experienced that, but that doesn't mean others won't, as some people may be sensitive to the ingredients.
