Perfectly indulgent, this Oblepikha & Honey Body Scrub, £6, which uses buckwheat honey, is such a winter-warming treat. It is one of Natura Siberica‘s natural line-up of products, all of which use the healing properties of plants from Siberia and the far east of Russia. Packed with goodness inside, the products make for gorgeous gifts, not least because they also look so pretty on any bathroom shelf.
This deep purification scrub contains the brand’s hero product Oblepikha, or sea buckthorn. Since ancient times, oil of Altai Sea Buckthorn has been considered as one of the best treatments for skin health as it contains a high content of Vitamin C, which helps speed up regenerating processes.
As a result, this pampering scrub – it feels gel-like and gentle – cleans skin and deeply nourishes. Buckwheat honey increases the elasticity and firmness of skin while organic extract of sage has a general tonic effect, helping to eliminate toxins.
Why not wrap it up together with this gorgeous shimmering bottle of Anti-Stress Shower Gel, £3.90? It gently foams up to clean and soften skin, and it has a lovely berry aroma to awaken the senses and give an uplifting effect. Packed with wild flowers and plants, vitamins and minerals, it’s the perfect kick start to the day and ideal to unwrap on Christmas morning.
