BODY FAVOURITES BORN IN SIBERIA: NATURA SIBERICA

Natura Siberica is a brand that has featured on my blog multiple times, mostly because I am drawn to their products that contain unusual ingredients sourced from unique and largely unblemished parts of Siberia and Russia. Although you can find a product for literally any aspect of your beauty routine under the Natura Siberica brand umbrella (they have 12 different collections!), their body products are what pull me in time and time again. After being an admirer of the brand for so long, I am so honoured and excited to be a part of their NS Crew program, so this post will help me in my initiation by talking about three of my most favourite Natura Siberica products that keep my body in top shape all year round.

THE UNORTHODOX CLEANSER EDIT

Cleansing my face is one of my favourite times of the day. There is nothing like ridding your face of daily pollution, dirt and impurities at the end of a long day and it’s one of my top rituals in my beauty routine.

This post will explore four ‘cleansers’ that give a modern approach to cleaning our skin.

A real-life Dad reviews the LUSH Father’s Day range

It’s time for another LUSH Cosmetics limited edition range, and this time we welcome the LUSH Father’s Day collection. I thought it would be insightful to get a realistic view and opinion of the range so that if you’re thinking of purchasing something for your father you can be more confident in your choices (and so you can stop asking your Mum for gift inspiration). I enjoy bringing my family into the mix here on The Beauty & the Geek. My partner Sam has been a guest reviewer on my blog before (read his ideas on the men’s Bellobox here), but it’s time for me to introduce my Dad to the blogosphere. I’ve asked him to trial and review the LUSH Father’s Day range, a challenge he graciously (and very surprisingly) accepted.
