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. At the end of the post, you may just find special offer you can take advantage of too – so keep on reading!

Ever since I received my first Karen Murrell lipstick in a Bellabox a few years ago, I’ve been continuously adding to my collection and I think it’s about time I mention the range on my blog.
Um.. sorry about the dramatic title, that’s just the forensic scientist in me. My post may not be as dramatic as the title suggests, but I wanted to explore the controversy surrounding synthetic preservatives in cosmetics, in particular the use of parabens, and to judge with my own opinion whether this controversy and the associated scaremongering marketing tactic is justified by real science and critical judgement.
