I love trying the weird and wonderful on UpYourVlog and if I told myself back last year that I’d be using more than just makeup wipes or micellar water to remove and cleanse my skin, I would have laughed and said ‘no chance‘. Well turns out I’ve actually implemented a skincare routine and I’ve recently been testing out this beastly soap from Natura Siberica.
The soap is no ordinary soap and its texture is more like a slightly hard mousse. It’s filled with ‘unique properties‘, northern herbs and berries that are rich in oils and vitamins which have been used since ancient times for their skin enhancing benefits.
So far so good right? The ingredients that make up this soap are used by Northern Siberian people for traditionally creating medical infusions and elixirs that help them preserve health and provide vitality and youthfulness.
It’s a hefty sized soap and with its thick circular packaging, it keeps the soap fresh and less messy than soaps that just come in a bit of plastic wrapping. You get 100ml for £11.99 and after just a few uses I haven’t even broken the surface.
The soap features highly absorbent activated carbon that draws impurities from deep within the skin and used one or twice a week (which I found surprising that it wasn’t daily), it promises to leave your skin super clean and sparkling.
I’ve used this a couple of times and I’d have to say, my skin definitely feels cleaner – but not so much sparklier – perhaps that’s the wrong word to use.
Natura Siberica carefully studied and brought together the ancient recipes of the Nenec, Selkup and Khanty people to create this unique facial cleanser.
I love how it initially goes onto the skin and the soap is actually buildable. The swatch above is a fingernail’s worth of product which looks a lot thicker than how it goes on to the skin. The water does water down the product and I did find that after I washed the soap off, there were very fine particles left clinging on some of my facial hair. However, after going over the skin with the sponge, this easily comes off.
I’m excited to continue using the soap on my skin especially as it feels so much cleaner and is a great in between after removing my make-up and applying moisturiser.
What do you think of this unique facial cleansing soap? Let me know in the comments below.
