I have had the pleasure of enjoying Bella Organics‘s products for a while now. The body butter is delicious. But my absolute favorite product from Bella Organics is the organic, aluminum free Bella Organics deodorant. I would definitely give this as a gift and although it might sound strange to give someone an organic deodorant as a gift, you would understand if you tried it and experienced how amazing it is. I also love their body butter and lip balms. They are the best lip organic lip balms I’ve ever tried! Yum!!!!
So when I went to pick up my Bella Organics package, the mail box was filled with amazing scents. I can’t even describe what they were except that if anyone was watching me they might find it strange that I kept smelling my package!
This time I received some items that are popular for the holidays. Bella Organics will definitely be in my Holiday Gift Guide. They sent their Refreshing Facial Jasmine Cleanser, the Jasmine And Honey Hydrating Face Cream, the Dead Sea Mineral Mud Mask, and their awesome Lip Balms!
My favorite product was the Dead Sea Mineral Mud Mask. It is fantastic! I usually don’t use mud masks because they dry out my combination type skin. This one did not. This is the best organic mud mask I have ever tried. It deep cleansed my pores and my skin felt invigorated. My skin felt refreshed and supple. Maybe this is because there are no fillers or additives.
Ingredients: Dead Sea Mineral Mud, Organic Aloe Vera Juice, Organic Perilla Seed Oil, Aloe Vera Oil. Organic Tea Tree Essential Oil, Organic Geranium, Optiphen (as a preservative) unless preservative free option chosen.
Recipe for Oily or Acne Prone Skin: Crush a small strawberry and mix with 1 teaspoon Bella Organics Mineral Mud Mask. Apply to your face, avoiding the eye area for 15 to 20 minutes, wash off with lukewarm water and pat your face dry. Moisturize with your favorite face moisturizer.
Recipe for Dry Skin: Mix 1/2 t. liquid organic honey, 1/2 t. organic oat flour and 1 t. Bella Organics Mineral Mud Mask. Apply to your face, avoiding the delicate eye area. Let dry for 20 minutes and wash off with lukewarm water. Pat your face dry and moisturize with your favorite face moisturizer. (This recipe is a favorite!)
Recipe for Sensitive Skin: The Soothing mask: mix 1 t. Bella Organics Mineral Mud Mask with 1/4 t. organic cucumber juice and 1/4 t organic aloe Vera jell.
They also sent the Refreshing Facial Jasmine Cleanser.
As it states on their site:
“Our foaming purifying facial wash is handcrafted with the finest organic botanicals. The rich & decadent foam is soft and fragrant, with a hint of peppermint that creates a mild refreshing experience.”
This cleanser is refreshing and minty smelling! I really enjoyed it.
Ingredients: Olea europaea” (olive oil), Cocos nucifera* (coconut oil), Ricinus communis* (castor oil), Simmondsia chinensis* (jojoba oil), Elaeis oleifera* (sustainable palm oil), Jasminum* (Jasmine), Piperita* (peppermint) *Certified Organic
The next product is the Jasmine And Honey Hydrating Face Cream. The smell of this cream takes me back to my child hood summer days in Greece spent with my Yia Yia. Whenever I would approach the house, in front of our bedrooms I would smell the jasmine, so pretty, so soothing and calming. This cream, which is great for dry skin, has organic honey which holds moisture leaving skin soft and supple, organic shea butter which heals and protects the skin, jojoba and coconut oil for a more youthful skin.
One mistake I made when applying this cream is applying too much. I should known better! So because I over did it, the fragrance was really strong for me and I have to remember to use little in the future. It really does go a long way. It’s so rich and emollient. I am not sure how I feel about the jasmine scent although I love the texture and richness of the cream, it’s so so soothing!!
