Today we will review Northern Soap, an excellent detox soap for deep facial cleansing that can be used both as a facial mask and as a soap. It is a product that became popular fast and there is much talk about it in the beauty community.
For those not aware of the Natura Siberica ,it is a company with beauty products made 95% from organic and herbal ingredients. ( the company has 5 certifications, you can check them here) All products are free of petrochemicals, silicones, parabens, artificial fragrances and dyes.
Let’s cut to the chase .. This product is a soap for deep facial cleansing. Or better.. a soap-mask. The charecteristic black color is due to the active charcoal contained. It also contains botanical extracts and valuable oils of Siberian region like oblepikha and nanai limonnik , as well as vitamins. Thanks to these ingredients the Northern Soap is antioxidant, cleansing, moisturizing and soothing and suitable for all skin types.
How to use Northern Soap:
As a mask:
The product comes in a 120ml jar and the package includes a sponge. We wet the sponge, strain well, take it from the jar and place it on the face, avoiding the area under the eyes. We spread it on the face like using a facial mask and use it as a mask.
Allow at least 10 to 15 minutes up to 1 hour (the longer the better) and then remove it either using a damp sponge or with your hands. It will produce foam in contact with the water and then you will understand that it really is a soap.
When you use Northern Soap as a mask on your face and dry it, it might pull you a bit but this is nothing inconvenient or embarrassing, especially if you have dry skin. This shows that the product is working.
We take a little of the product with our fingers and wash our face as we would with any other facial soap.
You can use it 1-2 times a week depending on your skin’s needs.
If you have dry skin it is better to not use it as a soap because it may dry your skin more. It is better to use it only as a mask for deep facial cleansing to have the best results from this product. As a soap, Northern Soap is better to be used to oily skins.
Northern Soap Mask Application
This is an interesting video from Natura Siberica Greece that shows an example of Northern Soap Mask application.
Once you rinse the mask you will feel your face really clean. It pulls all the pollutants and toxins from your face and removes the excess sebum and the oiliness from the skin leaving the skin glowing soft and hydrated.
Even used on very sensitive skin it will not cause any irritation. Just use it twice per week and you are good to go.
The real strength of Northern Soap can be seen on oily skin. It cleans the pores and cleanses the skin without over-drying it. Removes the sebum and makes your skin feels soft and clean. A totally recommended facial mask/soap that will give you very good results. Try it and let me know your experience with your comments below.
