About Senja:

Senja skincare products are developed and manufactured in Finland using local ingredients. Raw materials are picked from the clean Finnish forests. Due to short summer, Finnish berries and herbs are packed with antioxidants and vitamins. Senja uses these uniquely potent berry and herb extracts and oils to achieve maximum efficiency - 100% naturally.

Based in Finland, Senja is a natural beauty brand that specializes in three skincare steps: cleansing, toning, and moisturizing.  They draw on the potent power of plants, and are all harvested from one of the cleanest countries on the planet.

Namesake founder Senja launched the business in an effort to supply eco and vegan friendly products that drew on the magic of local materials, and worked hard to ensure each formula was both gentle and highly effective.  The product range is all FI-Natura certified, meaning everything is cruelty free and made with a minimum 95% natural ingredients.  Plus, you can rest easy knowing the brand has a 'no go' list when it comes to resources for their treatments.  This includes petrochemicals, plastics, parabens, phenoxyethonal, palm oil, synthetic fragrance, and more!

Koti Lifestyle - Senja Nordic Nectar Toner Essence Review

Senja Nordic Nectar Toner Essence:

I almost didn't pick this one up from Koti Lifestyle when I was first asked to try out their green beauty retail shop.  As I do my best to minimize plastic packaging in my life, I often skip packaging that isn't reusable, refillable, or made with more sustainable materials.  That being said, I was honestly so happy I did choose to try Senja's Nordic Nectar Toner Essence.

This is not your average toner, and is such a special formula that you won't soon forget it.  Not only are the ingredients totally different, with nordic resources making up the luxurious liquid, but the consistency of the essence is brilliant as well.

The Nordic Nectar is fairly full bodied yet still feels lightweight, and it instantly soothes the face with its ultra-hydrating ingredients.  Plant based glycerin, nutrient rich birch sap, antioxidant packed blueberry extract, softening cottongrass, and other supercharged ingredients all work together to provide a conditioning treatment that really helps restore and balance your skin.

The toner absorbs quickly, and I love how it works to transform my face after a shower.  Usually it is slightly irritated and flushed, but with the Nordic Nectar I am treated to calmer and less tight skin.  I also noticed that other skincare treatments are more effective when I first apply Senja's toner essence.  My ritual is elevated, and my skin is a lot more radiant throughout the day and first thing when I wake up.  This is certainly not your everyday floral water or facial mist!

And I haven't even mentioned the smell... It's so enticing, and suggests a breath of fresh air, rolling hills, and crisp mornings.  Like a sweet, sticky syrup tinged with honeyed fruits and tart undertones - this is a bright, juicy aroma that is so deliciously moreish I find myself looking forward to the next time I can apply the nectar.  I find it such a cheerful, energizing, mood lifting aroma, and it is most definitely one I appreciate during the dark, cold winter days as well as during the bight warm summer months.

The Senja Nordic Nectar Toner Essence is such a special product, and one that I am so pleased I chose to pick up despite the plastic packaging (which is recyclable, or can be reused for travels as it is 100ml). This has proved to be a fantastic formula, and one that my face (and senses) is very thankful for!
