December 31, 2018 01:53


We will tell you about the eight beauty products bought by foreigners in Russia.

Foreigners fill their suitcases with these products when they leave Russia. What do foreigners appreciate so much about Russian cosmetics?

“Barkhatnye Ruchki” (“Velvet Hands”) cream. The brand appeared in 1994 and has remained one of the best domestic products for hand skin since then. During the past ten years, the product line of “Barkhatnye Ruchki” has included a variety of care cosmetics, such as moisturizing soap or anti-aging serum cream for hands. It is noteworthy that the product line is being constantly updated (there are creams with the oils of macadamia, argan and acai berries). The products included into the main line - nutritional, moisturizing and protective creams - are the best choice for every woman.

“Natura Siberica” northern detox soap. “Natura Siberica” personal care products can be seen on the shelves of European stores: the company is actively taking over the western market. This brand does not save funds on packaging, that is why you can choose these products as a gift for your foreign friends. The composition of the product includes extracts of healing herbs grown by the company on eco-farms in Siberia. The appearance of the product is also admirable: the birch coal included in the composition gives the soap a totally black color.

“Chistaya Liniya” (“Clean Line”) Shampoo. The shampoo on the basis of the decoction of healing herbs is another favorite product bought by foreigners in Russia. The use of the shampoo makes your hair look full and thick. A pleasant fragrance gives you the impression that you are basking in the sunlight on a blooming glade. May be these impressions are the reasons why our products are so adored abroad?

“Retsepty Babushki Agafyi” (“The Recipes of Grandmother Agafia”) hair mask. This firm mask is based on burdock oil and oat bran. It does not contain any parabens and silicones, does not make the hair heavier and contributes to their good combing. A package of 300 ml enables people to stock up the mask for the future, and tourist do exactly this: they literally wipe the mask off the shelves of the stores. As you open the product, you will definitely find a booklet with folk recipes for hair care under the lid.

“Organic Shop” Body Mousse. Russian organic brands enjoy deserved popularity abroad. They do not contain parabens, mineral oils and GMOs. For example, “Organic Shop” is one of the few domestic manufacturers with a world quality standard. Their products include honey, lingonberry juice and wheat germ oil - they moisturize, nourish skin and add up to its radiance.

Badyaga (Spongilla). The best Russian cosmetics not only care for the skin, if needed, they may have a therapeutic effect. Badyaga accelerates the healing of bruises, pulls dirt out of skin pores and improves blood circulation. Nevertheless, the price of the product is low, and it can be found in any pharmacy.

Altai “Mumiyo” (Shilajit). This is one more therapeutic and cosmetic product of Russian origin. The balsam is obtained in the mountains of Altai. A truly unique “mumiyo” possesses a wide range of ways of application. Foreigners consider this product to be one of the most affordable and efficient means in the fight against stretch marks, scars, burns and cellulite.

Tar soap. You cannot buy such this soap abroad — not only because the smell of the soap resembles a kind of mass destruction weapon. Tar - the main component of the product - is extracted from birch bark. Foreigners are happy to take tar soap bars to their native countries as souvenirs. The soap has a very Russian look, besides, it dries the skin pretty well.
