Natura Siberica Northern Soap For Deep Facial Cleansing

October 19, 2015


Every now and then I buy a product from Natura Siberica. Their ingredients aren't the best and most natural out there, but they have nice shower gels and face cleansing products. A product I've been testing out for the last few weeks is their Northern Soap for Deep Facial Cleansing*. Soap based on activated carbon or charcoal, a great absorbent which is usually used in products for oily, acne-prone skin. If you have tried everything for treating your acne and nothing worked, then try activated charcoal. Straight out pure I think is the best, but you can also try some products containing it. The Northern Soap has some really amazing ingredients, wild herbs and berries extracts I have never heard of before, like Oblepikha Oil, Limonnik Nanai, Bilberry Oil, extracts of Northern Cloudberry and so on. There are also some ingredients I don't really care about, one of them is Parfum. The product has the strongest scent which I find too artificial in comparison to other natural products. But some really like it, as I have read some reviews. You can check other ingredients here BUT unfortunately they aren't the same as those written on the actual product. Hope they update that.
As you can see, this product comes in a black jar with a black sponge, with which they recommend applying the product. I tried that and honestly, I don't think the sponge is necessary. I rather scoop it out with my finger and apply with my hands. For me this way is easier and more hygienic too. Oh and that jar, it's massive (120ml)! Can't see myself using the product anytime soon, if ever! Northern Soap has a lovely consistency - it's creamy and mousse-like. Before applying it on my face I like to firstly mix it with a bit of water. It spreads super easily and changes its colour from black, dark gray to light gray, white-ish shade. Soap doesn't lather, maybe just a tiny, tiny bit but it doesn't disappear like some other non-foaming products.
I've been using it once or twice per week, like it is suggested, and I quite like it. I haven't seen a big change in my skin, but after every use my skin feels nicely cleansed and it's not drying. It is supposed to be deeply cleansing which is hard for me to agree or disagree. It's not a miracle worker but it looks like it does something to my skin. Surprisingly, it makes it a bit calmer, can't say it shrinks pores but the skin just looks nicer. Not sure if this product is available in our local drugstores, but you can buy it here. Use discount code "JANA" to get 10% off your order.

Have you tried any products with activated charcoal? What do you think of them? :)

Have a great week,

Jana xx

  1. Joj jst sem tudi tako občutljiva na parfume, sploh zadnje 2 leti. Sploh ne vem zakaj jih dodajajo v npr. malce bolj k naravi usmerjenim izdelkov, se mi ne zdi potrebno. Se pa zanimivo bere ta izdelek:). Me pa zanima, če si mogoče kdaj pisala o svojih najljubših naravnih izdelkih, ali pa če si mogoče pisala o sesatvinah, ki jih v izdelkih ne maraš:) Zadnje čase po blogih brskam samo še za tovrstnim gradivom:)
