My favorite products are the CHERISH SHEA BUTTER, CHERISH PERFUME and the NOURISHING FACIAL MIST. The smell is calming, especially when I travel and the Shea Butter is creamy and feels great on my skin, in both the summer heat and the cold, dry of winter.
Check out Lenka’s interview with Hilary on the NC Women blog.
Although I have only been using Natura Culina products for less than two months, I have already seen drastic changes in the way my skin looks and feels. I have suffered with acne for eight years and over the past few years, I have suffered with the anxious act of picking at my face. I first discovered Natura Culina while on Instagram. A girl I went to middle school and high school with, Dagny Knutson, posted a screenshot of her face on the NC website. Dagny is a swimmer and I know how harsh chlorine can be on the skin. I decided to give it a try, starting off with the FOAMING LAVENDER FACE WASH and the ROSE WATER NOURISHING FACE MIST. These two products alone have changed my face so much. The tone of my skin has started to even out. I am not breaking out and all of the marks I had from picking have started to disappear. Living in Arkansas is not easy for a girl who enjoys wearing make-up. You step outside and it instantly melts off. The heat makes you sweat and feel beyond dirt. I come home at night and wash my face and everything feels so fresh and clean. I also started using the PERK ME UP COFFEE SOAP. As a dancer, I sweat while wearing t-shirts, sweatshirts, etc, this lead to acne appearing on my back and shoulders. A week after I began using this soap my back and shoulders were clearing up and my skin was smoothing out. Recently, at night after I wash my face, I apply the REGENERATING FACIAL OIL. I can’t even explain how much of a difference I have seen in my marks. Another one of my favorite products is the SHEA BUTTER. As a dancer/choreographer, I constantly have bruises and scratches/floor-burns all over my legs and feet. After I shower at night, I rub in some shea butter on my legs and feet, put socks on, and jump in bed. When I wake up in the morning, not only is my skin smooth and soft, my bruises and marks begin healing and my skin tone is so even. Natura Culina products are changing my life. I feel so much happier when I’m not wearing make-up and I just feel great in my skin, which is something I don’t think I have ever said. Thank you Lenka!
MOISTURIZING SHEA BUTTER – LAVENDER– Richly textured certified organic African Shea butter enriched with organic coconut oil, anti-aging rosehip seed oil and vitamin E. This butter leaves your skin silky smooth, hydrated and nourished. Excellent after shower or bath as daily body moisturizing treatment. Very effective for dry skin areas (elbows, feet, hands). Great for massage. Rashida’s favorite scent is LAVENDER, purely by itself.
MOISTURIZING SUGAR BODY SCRUB – Coconut oil therapy sugar body scrub is a fabulous, highly moisturizing body scrub that gently removes dead skin cells, detoxifies and moisturizes your skin. Leaves skin silky soft, moist and polished. Also available in Lavender essential oil.
I received my order today. I can tell all the joy and love you put into each order. I have a short story. I am a nurse practitioner in a adult cardiology clinic. Many of my patients are very old, even in their upper 90’s. I always asks them for their secrets to a long good life. One 98 year old women said she sprays LAVENDER on her pillow every night. That is when I started to purchase lavender scented products. With these extra goodies you send me I “pay them forward” and give them to my patients who may be going through a hard time. Natura Culina products spread health and happiness far beyond myself!
I received my very generous package! I tried the face products as soon as I got them. This weekend my face was miserably dry with peeling skin on my forehead. I used the FOAMING FACE WASH, NOURISHING FACIAL MIST and applied the REGENERATING FACIAL OIL and my face is glowing! Thank you again! I appreciate the generous samples and look forward to adding your line to my daily skincare.
I hate taking pictures, but had to document how much the new products helped after using them just once! This picture was taken a few hours after using the products and applying my makeup! In the past, even when my skin was well moisturized my forehead still peeled, but thanks to Natura Culina, not tonight! My skin is far from perfect – but immediately, I’m not itching and feeling tightness! Thanks again Lenka!
6 years ago I had surgery on my lips due to cancer, since that time I have suffered with severe chapping and bleeding. I had tried many products with no relief until I discovered Lenka and her wonderful Natura Culina LIP BALM. An hour after I started using the lip balm my lips felt soft and after about a month I could even finally wear lipstick again. I’m so grateful for this product, it’s truly the best I’ve ever used and I can’t wait to try more Natura Culina products. If the lip balm is this fantastic I’m sure I’ll love the GOAT MILK SOAP! Thank you Lenka!
The SANDALWOOD CANDLE smells divine and lasts forever. My house smells incredible — it gives me yet another reason to love coming home! Such a GREAT gift, too! There is not a single Natura Calina product that I do not love!
My favorite products to use every day are the REGENERATING FACIAL OIL and the NOURISHING FACIAL MIST – my skin feels so soft and my skin has that glow everyone wants but I could never get from any other product! Heading into the long harsh northern winter I am so excited that I have these products to keep my skin from drying out. I am also in LOVE with my LAVENDER SHEA BUTTER! I have taken it on every flight since receiving it and it keeps my sensitive skin calm and hydrated after being on an airplane. I am so so grateful for the recommendation from my friend Caroline Burckle to try these amazing products!
I have always been skeptical about the claims beauty products make…to firm this or erase that…especially when the ingredient list is a mile long and full of scary-sounding, hard-to-pronounce things. But since I was fortunate enough to receive a sample of the all-natural Natura Culina PERK ME UP COFFEE SOAP, whose caffeine content is touted to help with cellulite, I figured it was worth trying, at least on my thighs and rear end. I am not the type of woman who obsesses over body flaws on a daily basis, so it was about two weeks into using the product before I caught a glimpse of my backside in the mirror while getting dressed. I really could not believe the difference! There was definitely a much smoother, firmer appearance! I am SOLD!
I LOVE Natural Culina BELLY BUTTER and SUGAR SCRUB! I used the scrub every day and the belly butter twice daily throughout my pregnancy, on my belly, hips and chest and it kept me stretch mark FREE!!! A must have duo for any soon to be expecting mom!!
Natura Culina products have been a lifesaver, especially your BELLY BUTTER which our family now calls “Baby Liam’s Butter!”
We slather it onto his skin each night after bath time and I tell you his dry patches, cradle cap and diaper rash have long gone! People stop me to admire Liam and always comment on his smooth skin. This product has been an absolute lifesaver and I would highly recommend every mother out there to have this handy! I’ve also been using the ‘butter’ on my skin and I too am glowing! Thank you for making such awesome, pure and safe products for all to enjoy!
We love Natura Culina – xxx
I live in Connecticut where the winters are very hard on your skin, and I get what we call “winter skin”. My legs would get so dry I would scratch them with a brush. I used every cream, butter and lotion and nothing helped. Since I have been using Natura Culina SHEA BODY BUTTER, SCRUB and PERK-ME-UP SOAP my skin hasn’t suffered from the dry irritation from the cold weather. My legs are soft and smooth and don’t itch. The soap and scrub exfoliates the dry cells and the the body butter moisturizes and nourishes. These products are amazing feeling and smelling and are the best nutrients for my skin.
I am so thankful to have found these products and can’t wait to try them all! Also, the hand written note included is a nice personal touch.
Thank you again Lenka, for these great products!
It has been my absolute pleasure to try several different Natura Culina body soaps. The PERK ME UP COFFEE SOAP is WONDERFUL! I love the blend of scents and it makes my skin feel all tingly. I especially enjoyed the ORANGE BLOSSOM and LAVENDER blends of Goat’s Milk soap. It leaves my skin feeling very soft. My personal favorite though, is the COCONUT OIL SOAP! It smooths on and immediately the fragrance starts to fill the air. Each blend I have tried is exceptional; Orange Blossom, Lavender, DELIGHT…I cannot wait to try them all. I love the way my skin continues to feel silky throughout the day, and holds the scent. These Coconut Oil Soaps are a lovely product I am delighted to use! Thank you Lenka, thank you Natura Culina.
The organic SHEA BUTTER felt incredible after a day on the beach. The moisturizing aspects were truly remarkable, in that it seemed to be absorbed rapidly into the skin and last for the entire day. I also believe that this product could be of significant benefit for those suffering from dermatologic conditions that result in a drying of skin. Moisturizing, organic and effective – a winning combination!
I picked up yet another magnificent Natura Culina goody and just had to reach out to say “thank you.” I actually started using Natura Culina after I picked up a sampler in a store and just had to have more. It’s been over two years and to say that I’m addicted would be an understatement. I just love your SHEA BUTTER products. I was so amazed how wonderful they feel and spread on the body. I have MS and have very dry skin and this is one of the only products that you can feel and see the difference. Most natural products I’ve found smell awful, so imagine my surprise when I found Natura Culina – an all-natural product line that smells heavenly. I’ve tried all your scents and my favorite it CUCUMBER MELON but I love them all.
I feel so fortunate to have found something in Santa Barbara that is truly all-natural and organic with no fillers that really gives amazing results. So again, “thank you” for bringing beauty and relief to my dry skin. Natura Culina products are amazing and I am a customer for life!
When I decided to open my mobile spa, I was looking for organic and very clean products, and when I found Lenka my search ended. I’ve been using Natura Culina for years now and I am really delighted with the quality of her products. My clients give lots of compliments on the quality and smell of the products. I also use them with my kids, because I feel that they could almost eat it and would not harm them. With Natura Culina I can guarantee pureness!
Not too many years ago, I realized how important it was for men to take care of their skin as well as women. This is especially true for me, because my work as a ship’s captain keeps my skin constantly exposed to the harsh ocean environment. After trying a few products on the market, I am very grateful to have found Lenka’s products for men. I could feel a difference right from the start of using them; now they are a part of my daily routine. With Natura Culina products, I am giving my skin the proper care and protection that it should have. Thank you, Lenka!”
Natura Culina products have changed my skin like no other product before. I have psoriasis and have never found a body lotion or oil that could keep my skin moisturized enough. I first used the MOISTURIZING SUGAR BODY SCRUB and noticed that my skin stayed soft and smooth all day long! I was hooked. I then added the SHEA BODY BUTTER and absolutely love its whipped texture and lasting moisture. The Essential Oils Natura Culina use are perfectly subtle and understated. Thank you Natura Culina!
I am writing you to thank you for developing your incredible BATH SALTS.
I am a 73-year-old woman and have suffered with eczema for years! I have bathed in Epsom Salts which, I know, is incredibly curative but to be truthful, after a while Epsom salts leaves my skin dry so I end up with another problem. I put off using it when I really shouldn’t.
But by your combining it with the dead sea salt and whatever wonderful goodies you use in the way you do, I don’t experience the dryness problem and I can use it as often as I like. So I bathe in it a lot—not only for the eczema but also because it is helping me with body pains and muscle soreness. It’s so relaxing and smells so wonderful! It’s the best bath salts on the market. Take it from one who knows!
I use the SHEA BUTTER daily and get compliments on the scents every time (I like to mix it up, depending on my mood). I even keep my work well stocked on the SHEA BUTTERS for my co-workers since we all have dry skin due to constant hand washing. When I am at home, it truly feels like I am giving myself a spa treatment! I like to use the BATH SALTS to unwind and relax, the GOAT MILK SOAP to wash, SUGAR BODY SCRUB to exfoliate and then finish off with the SHEA BODY BUTTER to moisturize. I can’t say thank you enough to Lenka for her products at Natura Culina!
Santa Barbara is like a second home to my husband and me so when I found Natura Culina skin care products I so excited because they are made locally and naturally organic. Natura Culina leaves your skin smelling fresh, clean and moisturized throughout the day. I always recommend Natura Culina products to my friends because Lenka can give you personalized care and customize products for her customers. She is also one of the most professional and knowledgeable skin care consultants I have ever worked with!
This winter my skin has been so dry and I was literally seeing a new wrinkle pop-up every week! That’s before I started using Natura Culina’s SUGAR SCRUB at night followed by their BODY BUTTER. It’s like have a spa experience in the comfort of your own home and shower! Natura Culina’s scrub is so soft, gentle, moisturizing and leaves your skin seriously SMOOTH. Slather on their body butter and I tell you your skin with thank YOU! I’m really not sure what I would do with out this fabulous duo!
My skin has been it’s happiest since using Natura Culina products. I have very sensitive and dry skin and I can trust the SHEA BUTTERS, SUGAR SCRUBS, and GOATS MILK SOAPS to nourish, protect and provide me with wonderful aromas. As a Santa Barbara native, I feel I can always have the essence of Santa Barbara with me no matter where I am thanks to the wonderful scents that Lenka uses in her fragrance line.
My baby boy, Storm, had a rash on his back and chest. We tried Aquaphor and various rash ointments but it persisted. Thinking it might be an allergy, we started to isolate his foods but it still didn’t go away. I had been using Natura Culina SHEA BUTTER on his diaper area and I decided to try it on the rash. Within a few days, the irritation disappeared completely. It is now our regular routine to rub Natural Culina Skin Butter all over his body after every bath. This is not as easy task, however, as he desperately tries to eat it. This is completely understandable as all of the products smell delicious.
I have a massage spa and have been using Natura Culina by Lenka Tinka for the past 6 months on myself and my clients. I have clients who have gone or are going through chemotherapy and/or radiation as well as those with scleraderma and lupus; I use Lenka’s Shea Butters and they have made an amazing difference in their skin! This is amazing butter, made with love and a little bit of magic as far as I can tell. My own skin, dry from many years of sun, now feels wonderful again thanks to her body scrubs which leave my skin feeling soft and moist. I just cannot say enough about this women and her products!!
Every Natura Culina product I have tried has been a joy! I get very excited when I know a package from Lenka is coming in the mail. She is wonderful about suggesting products and is very knowledgeable about homeopathic skin care. Her Shea Butters are so lovely and decadent with beautiful scents that linger for hours. I have them stashed everywhere so I will never be without. I use the soap, body scrub followed with the butter and my skin feels and smells great. I have all the ladies at my gym asking me what I use and I know what to give my friends for gifts! I love what I have received so far, I am looking forward to trying her other scents. Lenka is so passionate about what she does that it reflects in her products. I am so fortunate to have found Natura Culina and am excited to see what Lenka will create next!
‘Beauty is only skin deep’, or so it is said in our culture, yet I have found that skin’s beauty is like a ripe peach and only as healthy as its core. I admit as the years go by and with it all attempts to stop aging – so goes all; Shiseido, Lancome, La Meire ect. Fortunately, as time goes on our culture has become more conscious of our planet and health, moving towards a more loving human-ness which for me means ‘organic’. Once upon a time, In a Blissful Place, (a small spa) in Solvang CA, while waiting for a massage, I was seduced by the smell next to me…exotic, and my favorite sent of coconut. Alas, I rubbed this magic smelling coconut butter into my dehydrated Colorado skin and immediately felt the healing softness melt in, the ingredients never lie you can feel it’s organic nature. So, I came home with the body butter and the Lavender Bath Salt, filled the tub and as I poured the salt crystals they appeared as little diamonds falling (so beautiful); yet the aroma rising from the water immediately put my mind into a trance, the lavender essence is a healing meditation in itself. Absorbed in a bath is my favorite, next I was given a sample of the orange scrub, the invisible crystals seemed to be encased in the organic oil and that kept me from getting too aggressive with the scrub, this left a silky luxuriousness. I also tried the facial cleanser that has a fantastic foamy feel that oozed with organic fragrance, usually I dislike cleansers, obviously this one is unique! Sometimes we are lucky to find a ripe peach that has fallen in front of us, a beautiful gift from the earth; this is my experience of Natura Culina.
Whenever I smooth on the body butter in the original scent at the club after a swim everyone in the locker room has to know what the gorgeous smell is, and that scent lingers subtly all day, for which I receive another bunch of complements with my clothes on!!! I have ordered this for my family, so now everyone smells like me!
I was born in Southern California with cheap Irish skin at a time when we used baby oil on our face to really get sunburned. Now, in my 50’s, I don’t want to undergo surgery to fix my skin. Instead, I have been lucky enough to find Lenka and her company, Natura Culina. There are so many anti-aging products on the market targeted at us women. But many of them use chemicals that are harsh on our bodies. Lenka’s natural oils and elixirs replenish and rejuvenate my skin. I have expanded my needs from just using her face soaps and moisturizers to using her body scrubs and polishes as well. My skin is happy and alive. Thank you, Lenka!
Thank you so much for my wonderful products! It has been an absolute pleasure to correspond with you…I feel like I have a new cosmetic buddy! The scrubs smell delicious and make my skin so soft and smooth. The Body Butters have helped clear up two dry spots I’ve had on my hands for years! The butter smoothed my skin in just 2 weeks of daily use. What a wonderful surprise the facial pouches are. I love the smell and they make my skin feel squeaky clean! I have oily skin and I have noticed an immediate decrease in oil within 2-3 days. The pouches even took off my eye makeup and mascara! I’m so glad I found your products, I love finding new sources that are unique. Thanks again!
From a young age I have struggled with eczema and very sensitive skin. Doctors tried everything to soothe my irritated skin- yet nothing worked. Recently I had a painful patch of eczema on my right hand that would not go away. I was always embarrassed that people would notice it. It had gotten to the point where I couldn’t wear rings or even wash dishes. I tried just about everything to get it to go away, but with no success. Then my mom turned me onto Natura Culina. I noticed a difference within a week or so. My skin has never felt so healthy and luminous. Instead of worrying about people seeing my red, irritated hand I actually get compliments on my skin. I am not sure what happened, but all I know is that the result speaks for itself. These products are definitley worth trying. I recommend them to everyone I know. I am so greteful to this line of products.
Dear Lenka, I love working with you! Not only are your products amazing, but your attitude of happiness, positive outlook, dedication and determination makes all the difference in life, especially in business!
