I realised I have never posted this review, found it on my tablet yesterday !. 🤣 So without further a due, here are my thoughts on the Natura Siberica Cleansing foaming mousse ! As always, the review is divided into several segments. Feel free to skip the parts you don’t want to read. 😉

Ono kada u kompu pronađeš recenziju koju si zaboravila da postaviš ! . 🤣 Prema tome, bez neke dosadne uvertire, prelazimo direkt na recenziju Natura Siberica pene za čišćenje lica !. Kao i obično, recenzija je podeljena po podnaslovima, tako da slobodno možete preskočiti ono što vas ne zanima da čitate. 😉

AN INTRO ABOUT THE BRAND – MALI UVOD O SAMOM BRENDU

 

Natura Siberica is considered the first russian certified organic brand. In the 10 years since its founding in 2007, the company has become well-known for its production of aqueous and oil extracts (especially cedar & pine), derived from wild plants located in Siberia and Far East. Interesting fact – the plants used for cosmetics production are actually manually collected ( handpicked) by the natives of the region, employed by the subsidiary firm called “Siberia Organic”, located in Khakassia, Southern Siberia.

The brand has won many notable awards throughout the years and owns several certificates, including: ICEA ( stands for- Istituto certificazione etica e ambientale, an environmental and ethical certification Institute from Italy), ECOCERT ( an inspection and certification body for sustainable development from France ), COSMOS STANDARD ( stands for- Cosmetic organic and natural standard, a European non-profit association registered in Belgium), BDIH ( oldest European certification system of a non-profit association from Germany) and SOIL ASSOCIATION ( UK’s leading organic certifier).

 

 

Natura Siberica se smatra prvim ruskim, sertifikovanim brendom, organske kozmetike. U proteklih 10 godina, kompanija je uspela da zauzme jednu od vodećih pozicija na tržištu kada je u pitanju proizvodnja biljnih, kako vodenih tako i uljanih ekstrakata  ( pre svega ekstrakti bora i kedra ). Zanimljiv je recimo podatak da se biljne kulture ručno prikupljaju, od strane domaćeg stanovništva koje radi pri Naturinoj podružnici “Siberia Organic”, smeštenoj u Hakasiji ( autonomna republika na teritoriji južnog Sibira ).

Sam brend je dobitnik višestrukih nagrada za kvalitet, a ujedno poseduje i nekoliko izuzetno cenjenih sertifikata za kvalitet i čistoću samih sirovina : ICEA , ECOCERT, COSMOS STANDARD , BDIH, SOIL ASSOCIATION – u usnovi, sertifikati koji potvrđuju da se proizvodi baziraju na prirodnim sastojcima, organskog porekla. 

PACKAGING – AMBALAŽA

 

The cleanser comes in a sturdy plastic bottle with a foam pump. You get 170 ml of product that’s made in EU ( from the text on the bottle, I’d say – probably in Estonia by EUROBIO LAB ). Shelf life is 12 months after opening.

Pena za umivanje dolazi u čvrstoj plastičnoj flašici sa pumpicom koja proizvodi penu. Dobijate 170 ml, sa rokom trajanja od 12 meseci nakon otvaranja. Proizvodi se u EU ( na osnovu teksta na bočici, rekla bih da je u pitanju Estonija i kompanija EUROBIO LAB ).

APPLICATION & IMPRESSIONS – NAČIN UPOTREBE & UTISCI

 

So, this is your standard daily foam cleanser for oily and combination skin. Typical use you apply a pump of product massaging it onto damp skin, then rinsing it off with luke water. You can use it as a morning cleanser or also as a second step cleanse in the PM ( after removing your makeup remover of choice – an oil based cleanser, a balm, micellar water, etc.). The foam is very nice and light, but with a very strong lemony, citrus scent ( which I personally don’t like, smells very artificial… if you ask me – yuck 🤢 ). Good news for me, the scent doesn’t linger on the skin after you wash your face. The cleanser didn’t dry out my skin, and one pump is more than enough for your whole face ( apart from the pump being a bit more stiff to push down, but again, maybe it was just with my bottle). 

 

 

Ovde je u pitanju klasična pena za čišćenje kombinovane i masne kože . Upotreba kao i kod svakog sredstva za čišćenje – penu masirajući nanosite na vlažno lice, nakon čega sve ispirate mlakom vodom. Možete ga koristiti kako ujutru prilikom umivanja, tako i uveče kao drugi korak pri čišćenju lica (nakon što skinete šminku sa nekim sredstvom po izboru – bilo da je u pitanju micelarna voda, balzam, uljani odstanjivač šminke itd.). Pena je vrlo blaga, lagane teksture, jedino mi smeta što ima dosta jak miris citrusa tj.limuna ( što ja lično ne volim, ujedno mi miris deluje vrlo veštački podseća me na limuntus… iskreno – fuj 🤢). Sreća za mene, što se miris ne zadržava na koži nakon umivanja. Pena mi inače nije isušivala kožu, a jedna pumpica je više nego dovoljna za celo lice ( ako izuzmem da je moja pumpica bila malo kruća za pritiskanje, ali to je možda bilo samo do moje flašice).

 

ABOUT THE PRODUCT & INGREDIENTS – O SAMOM PROIZVODU & SASTAVU

 

The cleanser itself is enriched with several soothing and hydrating plant extracts, including: Japanese pagoda tree (vit P), chamomile, sunflower, common soapwort, yarrow, mustard, buttercup and granny’s bonnet (the plant names are in latin on the bottle/website). They also claim it’s good even for removing makeup, but I can’t confirm nor disagree with this , since I’ve used it just as a second cleanse (after removing makeup). The product is vegan firendly, cruelty-free, eco-friendly, and doesn’t contain: mineral oil, silicones, parabens, PEG, BHA, BHT or EDTA. The product does contain some alcohol and as you can see fragrance ( but pretty low on the list). The surfractants (Coco Glucoside, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate i Cocamidopropyl Betaine) that were used are pretty mild ( derived from coconut oil  ).

The COSDNA ingredients list :

Pena je obogaćena sa dosta biljnih ekstrakata, uključujući : japanski bagrem ( bogat vitaminom P), kamilicu, suncokret, sapunjaču, hajdučku travu, kupusnjaču i ljutiće. Tvrde da je pena dovoljno jaka da ukloni i tragove šminke, što lično ne mogu da potvrdim, s obzirom da šminku uvek temeljno skidam nekim drugim proizvodom pre korišćenja same pene. Proizvod nije testiran na životinjama, pogodan je za vegane, ekološki prihvatljiv i ne sadrži mineralna ulja, parabene, silikone, PEG, EDTA, BHT, BHA. Sa druge strane, sadrži alkohol i mirise ( oba su vrlo nisko na listi) ali i dosta blage surfaktante (Coco Glucoside, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate i Cocamidopropyl Betaine -dobijaju se iz kokosovog ulja).

DO I RECOMMEND ? –  DA LI PREPORUČUJEM ?

 

All in all, it’s a nice daily cleanser. Now, if you have issues with fragrance, alcohol or you’re allergic to some plants ( sometimes with natural skincare, people are more prone to skin reactions ) I’d skip this cleanser. I personally won’t repurchase it, just because of the god damn smell. 😒 Don’t get me wrong, it works nice – but smells bad to me. Do keep in mind that that’s a matter of personal preferance really. I bought it at my local Natura Siberica store, and it was pretty inexpensive for a natural brand, retailing at around 8 bucks. 😊

Što se tiče ove pene, sasvim dobro sredstvo za čišćenje. Ako imate problema sa parfemom, alkoholom ili ste ovako alergični na neke od biljaka, najbolje bi bilo da preskočite ovu penu. Ja je lično neću ponovo kupovati jer mi se ne sviđa njen miris. Da se razumemo – pena radi dobro svoj posao, ali je miris meni prosto odbojan. 😒 Naravno, to je stvar ličnog ukusa. Penu sam kupila u Natura Siberica prodavnici u Beogradu, po pristupačnoj ceni od 798 rsd. 😊

 

That’s it for my review guys ! Have a great weekend ! 💞
