Clean skincare is really important to me. I used to have severely bad acne and chose to go on accutane to help get rid of it. How I continue to keep my skin clear now is by sticking to a natural and clean skin care routine.
I know the term clean beauty gets thrown around a lot so let me explain what it means (at least for me). To me, clean beauty is when products are created in a mindful and thoughtful way, without the use of harmful chemicals or any animal testing.
So when the natural, cruelty-free, and 100% vegan skincare company Bella Vérité reached out to me to try some of their new skincare line products, I couldn’t resist!
A little background on Bella Vérité. Bella Vérité stands for beautiful truth and their company philosophy is to provide clean skincare products with simple ingredients. No harsh chemicals. No toxic ingredients. No animal testing. No bullshit.
Bella Vérité kindly gifted me the following products to try:
Even though these products were gifted to me all opinions are my own.
The Stardom Glow CC Serum is Bella Vérité’s Vitamin C serum. This is the product I was most excited about and has easily become my favourite product out of the three. However I was slightly hesitant to try it at first because every serum I had tried in the past had a sticky texture that I just couldn’t get on board with.
However, this Vitamin C serum blends into my skin really well. It’s also lightweight and doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin. And best of all, no sticky texture haha! Sometimes I put this on twice a day because that’s how much I love it.
Do you have a Vitamin C Serum in your skin care routine yet? I believe having this product in your routine is very important. Vitamin C helps boost collagen. fade hyperpigmentation, and brighten your complexion, amongst many other great benefits. Read more here.
I am also OBSESSED with the smell of this serum. It has a rich scent of citrus orange as two of its main ingredients are Caribbean orange oil and citrus stem cells. This serum makes my skin feel super fresh and hydrated.
I will definitely be buying this again!
I was never interested in trying any eye gels or creams prior to this but now that I have tried this eye gel I can seriously say I don’t know how I lived without one. It feels so refreshing to put this under my eyes after a long day.
I was worried this gel might feel goopy or heavy under my eyes but instead it felt really light and refreshing.
Being totally transparent, I was not a huge fan of the smell of this product at first but after a few times of using it the smell grew on me and I do actually like it now haha. I don’t know if my nose just got used to the smell or what.
I also always feel like my under eyes look more hydrated and bright the next morning after using this (I don’t know if it’s just the placebo effect or if it’s actually working. I’ll leave that up to you haha).
I used to do masks a lot during my pre-accutane days. However I stopped after I changed my skincare routine to a more natural one and since have been looking for a face mask to add to my skin care routine again.
I was really impressed with this Charcoal mask. It left my skin feeling smooth and clean. It didn’t irritate my sensitive skin and instead made it feel gently exfoliated.
This mask is a powerful combination of charcoal and three triple-action clays which will eliminate any oil or dirt from your face. I would recommend this mask to anyone looking for a gentle exfoliater to refresh with once a week.
In conclusion, I am very impressed with the quality of these products. I genuinely liked each product a lot and am happy to have added them to my skin care routine. I will most definitely be purchasing these again, especially the Vitamin C Stardom Glow CC serum!
