All-natural Polish skincare products. Which are the best? 

Not being from here, sometimes it’s hard to find products which aren’t available in stores or are a little different than the mass-produced stuff. Honestly if you don’t use the internet or watch TV in the language of the country you live in, you miss out on a lot. You either you have to read blogs in Polish or talk to people. Word-of-mouth was usually my way but now I’m trying to branch out and search for things in google in Polish and read more Polish stuff. Luckily I found a great blog called PiggyPeg, which does reviews of beauty products and helped me find awesome stuff. Here’s what I’ve discovered so far. 

Biolaven. These were the first all-natural products that I tried here in Poland. They are extremely well-priced and the products worked really well for me. I’ve used the micellar water (17 zl), night cream (26 zl), and intimate gel (18 zl), all of which I’d highly recommend. The products have a lovely lavender and grape scent and the price is awesome in terms of organic products. I suppose these are just about the cheapest you could find.IMG_2193

Dla kosmetyki. The cool thing about these products is that you can find them in Rossman so you can pick them up while doing other shopping and you don’t have to order them, meaning no shipping costs. I used the Kuracja regeneracja night cream (27,50zl), which turned out to be amazing. I have dry skin and I needed something super  hydrating, exactly what I needed. So far, so good with Dla.

Make me bio. Next I tried these products and was also quite satisfied with them. The hardest thing was to find an all-natural day cream with SPF (35 zl), which is something I really need because I’m as pale as a ghost. This cream has a very natural scent with no perfume – a big plus. Not only that, the cream comes in a glass container which really makes it seem like a high-shelf product. I also use their rose water (16 zl) as a tonic. I’m not a huge fan of the rose scent but it’s a great product and a good price.



Others I’ve heard of but haven’t tried yet:

Sylveco. I know this is the mother company of Biolaven + Vianek but I’ve only used some samples of their products, never a full product for an extended time, so I’m not sure I can really comment on them. Anyway, I like what I’ve tried.

Cztery Szpaki. Handmade soap? Like that idea. This company has soap made of coal which is supposed to detox your body. For sure I’ll order it sometime in the near future.

Resibo. I’ve heard a lot of this company and I think it looks great as all the products are either 95% or 100% organic. The only reason I haven’t tried it is because of the price point. It’s a little more expensive than these other products but worth it I’m sure.

Mokosh. This brand also has a pretty high price point but they come in glass containers and also seem like they’re worth trying. They’ve got a line of flower waters which look amazing.

Comments? Suggestions? What do you use? Does any know any good soaps for people with dry, very sensitive skin? I’ve been looking for something good for a while. Let me know what you think!

    For soaps I can recommend Ministerstwo Dobrego Mydła –
    I love their Carrot soap, the orkisz peeling worked also very, very well.

    Floridian sun must have been a hassle for you if you need that much sunscreen

    Vianek – it smells awesome. I have some moisturizing mist, i had an oil (“red” one, sweet scent with cinnamon oil) and my friend has “green” shower gel – it’s like green apple in the bottle. Highly recommended. Worth trying is also brand “Ministerstwo Dobrego Mydła” – the girls make handmade soaps, body lotions, scrubs and they sell some pure oils.

    From RESIBO you have to get oil to remove make-up – it is their absolutely hit! Makes skin completely clean, moisture and nice in touch in a second. Worth the price, you’ll never come back to any other make-ip removing thing. 🙂

    You should also try ”Babushka Agafii” serie for Your hair. It’s russian brand, but you can find it on allegro, it’s all-Natural, with really rich inci, and it Works amazing for dry hair, so I think the curles will love it! Love you <3

    Best aqua based/water resistant sunscreen will get in Poland?
    Please help, I’m new in this place.

      Oh gosh I’m not sure I can give you the best advice there but I’d say anything you can buy in the pharmacy and costs around 50 zł. That’s what I buy for my son.
