100% Natural Beauty

 

Bella Forever

 

When I first heard about Bella Forever, it hadn’t even launched yet! A new, exciting, natural and cruelty free brand creating homemade face masks. Pure luxury! Putting my excitement aside, Bella Forever has stunning powder based face masks that not only look stunning, but truly are.

 

Bella Forever

 

 

“Bella Forever aims to inspire all women to embrace their natural beauty by using natural products that nourish and rejuvenate the skin, enhance texture, impart radiance & reduce signs of ageing.”

 

 

 

 

So who is Bella Forever!?

“Hi There!

Many beauty products on the market today are not suitable for sensitive skins, including mine. My name is Annabella and I am the natural beauty founder of this flourishing business. My own story was one of fragile skin which couldn’t cope with numerous cosmetics and makeup preparations available on the high street. My skin protested repeatedly showing its irritation with rashes and soreness and I began to notice just how many products used alcohol, mineral oils and synthetic fragrances… and most were tested on animals too 🙁

Motivated by a complete lack of 100% natural products available, I started to experiment by creating my own facial masks and beauty products, taking things back to basics in search of beautiful, clear skin. My powder based masks are created with an array of skin types in mind and use only the finest clays and essential oils that are gentle on the skin but work wonders by enhancing radiance and glow whilst tackling other skin sensitivities. All my products are safe for everyone to use and enjoy, including pregnant women. Quality is never compromised and you can trust that I personally inspect everything before despatch.

Time is at a premium for us all. Juggling the demands of our work and personal lives leaves little time to invest in a comprehensive and often expensive skin care routine every day. That is why my masks have been formulated to be quick and easy to mix and apply but the results are simply outstanding. Regular care with simple but excellent ingredients is the key to preventing and clearing skin conditions that invariably become worse with unnatural product additives.

Look forward to rejuvenated and nourished skin, reducing the signs of premature ageing and imparting a pure radiance you’ll love……

Bella Forever – it’s all you need.

Annabella x”

So straight off the bat I was in love with the personal touch just from the packaging. These products had clearly been tucked up and wrapped with love. (I’ve even kept the little label!). I have two face masks, but there are 10 to choose from – and I need all of them! On top of that there are multi-mask packs and accessories such as brushes and application sets. Everything about them is just heavenly!

I honestly couldn’t pick a favourite out of these two, they are both just brilliant. Mint Cooler (which is definitely cooling!) detoxifies beyond belief – I can literally feel it working! And Baby Belle? Well, this one is just pure pampering at its’ best. It left my skin so calm and smooth. Also if you’re not sure which masks to choose, there is a “Choose Your Mask” feature on the website to help you decide – tailor made beauty!

The Cruelty Free Beauty Box Review

The Cruelty Free Beauty Box Review

The Cruelty Free Beauty Box!

 

So! Luckily, I have been fortunate to be sent another of the Cruelty Free Beauty Boxes. I received my first Beauty Box in June 2018 (full review here) and instantly fell in love with everything that The Cruelty Free Beauty Box stands for. A monthly subscription box that includes completely Cruelty Free products for just £14.95 per month (the value inside the box is WAY more!) – plus, if you prepay for 2 or 6 months it is even cheaper! What I loved most about this was the opportunity to discover Cruelty Free brands that I may not have come across on my own. This being said, with Christmas on the way (too early?) the December Box is available as both a subscription box or a gift subscription box, or as a One Off Box for a gift! Use code TREATME for a bonus item!) 

On top of this (as if that wasn’t enough) they have added loads of new products for gifts to their shop, including a Men’s range! So with all this in mind, let’s dive in to the November 2018 Beauty Box and see what goodies we have!

Tisserand Aromatherapy – The Hand Cream (RRP £7.95)

“A must have handbag essential this winter! This Rose & Geranium Lead Hand Cream is bursting with the heavenly fragrance of enriching Rose and balancing Geranium pure essential oils. Expertly blended with botanical extracts of Aloe Vera and Calendula Flower with added, moisture-rich Jojoba oil, this 100% naturally fragranced hand cream helps to protect & soother delicate skin & strengthen nails.”

I LOVE this! The scent is absolutely delicious and it feels SO nourishing! 

Flawless – The Blend Brush (RRP £4.99)

“This Eco Friendly Blending Brush has been carefully designed to work with both concealers and eyeshadows. The long densely packed bristles are designed to diffuse powder, cream, gels and liquids for an airbrushed finish. So whether you use it for your favourite eyeshadow palette & want to create a smokey eye or you just want to conceal an area, it’s the perfect multi tasking brush!”

This brush has been a game changer for me. I’m not a makeup artist – at all – and blending is always a bit of a mission. But! This  brush is so soft and makes any look I am trying to attempt look a lot more seamless! 

LUE’s by Jean Seo-Clear (RRP £11.50)

“Clear is a powerful compound which leaves skin smooth, radiant and clear. Using a special blind of 12 herbs and organic bio dynamic alcohol, this tincture is the ultimate blemish control for leaving your skin flawless. With party season just around the corner & the stress of Christmas, Clear is the perfect essential to keep your skin calm & flawless. You can either us the product directly from the applicator or use a cotton bud to apply (preferably eco friendly ones). Don’t make the mistake we did of putting a cotton bud into the tube as the end came off & it’s impossible to get back out! Apply to area & hold for 30 seconds, repeat 3 times.”

While I don’t particularly have any “spots” at the moment ( a rarity in itself) I did have one of those annoying “under the skin” types. I say did, as its gone. I can definitely vouch for this product, a life saver especially with the Christmas events coming up! 

Spoiled Lips – Matte Liquid Lipstick (RRP £8.95)

“These Matte Liquid Lipsticks will all all day or night. Not only with last, they’re also waterproof! Keep and eye on our website as they’ll soon be some seriously quirky palettes by Spoiled Lips too!”

So I was pleasantly surprised by this, not so much the formula or quality (which I must say is so comfortable and lasts such a long time!) but the shade! While I would usually gravitate towards nude shades, this gorgeous rich brown-red-plum is so wearable and perfect for the season!

Urban Veda – Radiance / Soothing Body Scrub (RRP £12.99)

“Gently exfoliate & buff away dead skin cells with these Body Scrubs. harnessing the power of naturally abrasive exfoliants or pumice stone & crushed walnut shell powder, this formula is the perfect texture to reveal fresher-looking skin. Exfoliate in circular motions, massaging the skin to help stimulate circulation. Another winter essential that will add a touch of luxury to your bathroom routine! Urban Veda are also making the movement to help our planet, their packaging is made from recycled plastic & they are also recyclable.”

This body scrub is an absolute joy. It is super soft and doesn’t feel like it’s attacking the skin, it just smooths the surface leaving baby soft skin behind. Genius! 

As always, I have loved every product I have received in this box. The value as a subscription is just astounding, but now that they have a shop!? Off I go!
