I love a good body scrub. I regularly exfoliate twice a week during the winter as my skin tends to be more dull, dry and ashy.
I’m a big fan of Natura Siberica and I recently purchased their Oblepikha & Honey Body Scrub 300ml (£6)
This luxurious scrub filled with organic Altai oblepikha oil, organic honey and organic sage extract is a great natural remedy to deeply purify and renew the skin, while enhancing its elasticity and making it soft and gentle to the touch.
Altai oblepikha is a century old recipe for the beauty of skin and hair. The oil is produced by cold press from selected sea-buckthorn berries harvested in Kluchevsk region of Altai krai. This Siberian berry contains fatty acids omega 3, 6, 9 in high concentration, the rare omega 7 fatty acid, which can usually be found in plants and precious flavonoids.
It has softening, protective, moisturizing, antioxidant, regenerating and anti-inflammatory properties.

First of all I love the beautiful packaging, definitely eye catching and stands out on any bathroom shelf.
So the first thing I noticed when I opened it was the scent…it has a lovely fruity, honey scent.
The texture is gritty and sticky. What I really liked when I applied to my skin is it stuck well and didn’t just roll off my skin. This also meant I didn’t have to use alot.
I find most salt/sugar scrubs tend to do just roll off and you end up with majority of it in the bath which is such an annoying waste!
It felt really nice as I massaged my skin in the shower, I added a little water and then it turns milky. It rinses off easily and afterwards my skin felt incredibly smooth, soft and hydrated. The gorgeous scent also lingers on my skin which is great.
I absolutely love this scrub and I’m really pleased with the results, not only does it do a great job at exfoliating dull, dead skin…it is such a delight to use. Not bad for £6!
