Get That Glow! Let's Talk Bella Aura Skincare | Review

Bella Aura Skincare Review - BeautyMindSpirit.com
Hi Darlings! I hope you guys are having a wonderful time leading up to the special holidays. Did you manage to get all of your shopping done? Baking done? I have one more gift to get and I am finished. I am leaving soon to head to Indiana to see my mom's side of the family. My father, son, and boyfriend will be accompanying me. I can't wait to spend a few days with everyone!

I am here to talk about a very exciting skincare line! It is called Bella Aura. My skin is glowing and hasn't looked better. I'm going to share with you guys how to achieve youthful looking, healthy, radiant skin. The Bella Aura skincare products I have to share with you today are designed to reverse aging, increase antioxidants, erase fine wrinkles, and deep cleanse your skin without disturbing your skin's natural moisture levels or dry it out.
Post moisturization glow! Not edited. Bella Aura Skincare Review - BeautyMindSpirit.com
Most of you who have been following me for a while know that I believe in using natural skincare and body products. They are important to me. Our skin is the largest organ of our bodies. So the first thing I want to touch it is a natural product that won't harm my body. With that being said, I am always looking for the best performing natural skincare and body care products out there. When I  come across a line that works super well, I have to rave about it and let you guys know. This is one of those times!
Bella Aura Skincare Review - Glowing Skin - BeautyMindSpirit.com
I was contacted by Yasmine, the founder, a couple months ago and we both resonated with each other. We share very similar morals and values. She shared with me her story behind the creation of Bella Aura, and I absolutely loved it. She was inspired by the Berber tribes of Morocco. Their ancient skincare philosophy has been proven by science. She combines nature with science to create her products and I'm a total geek for that. She is a philanthropist and helps sustain women in Morrocco who source her the ingredients she uses for her skincare. She has a spiritual tone to what she does. She can see chakras and is very intuitively sensitive and empathic like myself. The design and colors of her logo represent her spiritual nature and that is amazing to me.

My experience using this skincare was great! I have combination/oily skin. I think this product line would work great for ALL skin types. It didn't disturb or create more oil on my oily t-zone. I saw a glow, instantly... and that glow increased after three days. My skin feels soft and supple. My texture didn't improve very much (I have stubborn texture), but my skin tone did. Texture is usually something that I need to use microdermabrasion for or another form of exfoliant anyway, so that didn't surprise me or disappoint me.


Bella Aura uses a fusion of 4 ancient oils they call the Kamilah Blend. These oils are: Argan, Fig de Barbary, Neroli, Nigella. This is why her skincare line is different and stands out.
Let's dig a little deeper into what these oils do. I'm going to insert some of the information I read on the website.

"Kamilah Oil Complexes - Precious natural treasures from the heart of Morocco ancient culture. The benefits of these potent oils have been cultivated and used by Moroccan Berbers for centuries. Each oil has tremendous benefits on it’s own, but this blended 4 oil concentrate gives mind-blowing visible results
The Argan Tree - The Argan tree is known as the iron tree because of its ability to survive in an extremely harsh climate.  The oil from its fruit is known for its superior nutritional value to the skin. The Berbers believed that it has magical powers for a person’s spirit.
The Fig de Barbary - The oil from the seed of the Fig de Barbary (Moroccan cactus fruit) has the highest concentration of Vitamin E of any botanical based oils.  It’s believed to create a barrier against negative energy.
Neroli - Neroli, which comes from the flower of the bitter orange tree, is known as a confidence booster.  It has incredible benefits to the skin and is said to calm the emotional being by protecting against negative elements that surrounds us.
Nigella - Nigella oil comes from black cumin seeds.  It’s believed to be a miracle oil that has healing powers for the skin and protect against negative energy.
Our Kamilah blend is an exclusive, natural solution to fight the signs of aging and boost your natural beauty and confidence.
Bella Aura is elevated by science. Bella Aura has created a line of natural skin care products that combines natural ingredients formulated with advanced natural active
extracts.
Bella Aura's formulation chemist has overcome the difficult task of creating emulsion formulas resulting in products that reflect the best qualities of serums and creams. The goal was to create a line of natural skin care products that delivers positive results.
Their emulsion formulas are loaded with:
  • High levels of hyaluronic acid to exfoliate the old cells and replenish new cells
  • Collagen to improve and retain elasticity and a firmer skin texture
  • Elastin boosters that minimize signs of aging and maximize a youthful appearance
They combined these essential nutrients with advances science technology and active ingredients that contain:
  • Powerful botanical extracts for their highly effective improvements to skin hydration
  • High performance peptides that penetrate the skin deeply and more effectively
  • Antioxidants to help stop the free radicals that cause oxidative stress on the skin
  • Vitamins to nourish the skin for a more youthful glow
  • Minerals to boost the skin's performance
 Here's my video talking about the products on my YouTube channel:
 

 Let's discuss price and product specifics!

doTERRA Emotional Aromatherapy System Review

doTERRA Emotional Aromatherapy Blends - BeautyMindSpirit.com
 
It has been a long time, beautiful people. I'm sorry for the delay of posts. I have been going through a lot of life changes and some ups as well as downs. If you'd like to hear all about it, I'll either post a video or create a post about it for you. Alas, I am here to share a review of this deliciously smelling essential oil blend kit that I received from doTERRA.
 
Many of us have heard of doTERRA by now... and essential oils have become a stable in a lot of our lives. I grew up with a unique dynamic of Amish/Mennonite and Native American relatives. Because of this, I have been using tinctures, herbs, and salves for my medicine needs all of my life. It was only natural that I would fall in love with essential oils several years ago when I was first introduced to them. I like all kinds of brands.. Young Living, Aura Cacia, Mountain Rose Herbs, etc. I also love supporting local essential oil vendors and distillers when I can. 
Once my friend Sabrina showed me this essential oil kit that had all of these amazingly smelling emotional blends.. I had to get my hands on my own, because the blends were having an affect on my moods. I could feel them working! I decided to sign up and take advantage of the discount associated with becoming a wellness advocate

Here's the pricing:
Non-Member Price: $212.00
Preferred Member Price: $159.00
Wellness Advocate Price (Enrollment Emotional Aromatherapy Kit + Diffuser): $195.00
VIDEO:
 

Here is what doTERRA says about this kit:

The doTERRA Emotional Aromatherapy System is based on chemistry. Beginning with a specific chemical profile, the blends were put together based on the known properties of their chemical constituents as opposed to simply providing a pleasant aroma. While responses can be highly individual, the blending of these specific essential oils has created a synergistic composition ideal to promoting healthy emotional responses.

doTERRA Motivate™ Encouraging Blend is a wonderful combination of several citrus and mint essential oils, including Yuzu, Clementine, and Peppermint. This blend marks dōTERRA’s first use of Yuzu, the limonene-rich essential oil expressed from the peel of the mandarin-like Japanese fruit. The resulting chemical profile is high in monoterpenes and monoterpene alcohols, which are known for their uplifting and toning properties. Motivate is the perfect aromatic compliment to help promote feelings of confidence when working on an important school project.

doTERRA Cheer™ Uplifting Blend is an invigorating mixture of citrus and spice essential oils. Featuring Wild Orange, Cinnamon Bark, and Star Anise essential oils, the resulting chemical profile is rich in monoterpene and aldehydes, renowned for their uplifting and warming properties. Comprised almost entirely of the phenylpropene anethole, Star Anise essential oil brings potent energizing characteristics to the new blend. Apply one drop of doTERRA Cheer to your hands, rub together, and inhale deeply to help incite feelings of optimism.

doTERRA Passion™ Inspiring Blend balances spice and herbal essential oils. Included in the blend is Damiana, a very rare essential oil rich in 1,8-cineole and alpha pinene, which is renowned for its renewing properties. Combining Cinnamon Bark, Ginger, Cardamom, Clove, and Damiana creates a chemical profile with high concentrations of phenols and ethers to provide warming and renewing benefits. Diffuse doTERRA Passion at your work desk to help spark creativity.



doTERRA Forgive™ Renewing Blend mixes familiar tree and herb essential oils to create a diverse chemical profile with high concentrations of monoterpene esters, alcohols, and sesquiterpenes. Most interesting is the introduction of Nootka Tree Wood, an essential oil with a very diverse chemistry composed primarily of soothing and grounding sesquiterpenes. Nootka Tree Oil is known largely for balancing emotions in stressful situations. Pure Thyme essential oil balances out the blend with potent renewing and toning properties. No meditation session is complete without diffusing doTERRA Forgive to help encourage patience and contentment.

doTERRA Console™ Comforting Blend combines floral and tree essential oils. The combination of Rose absolute, Ylang Ylang, Frankincense, Sandalwood, and several other highly valued tree and flower essential oils creates a blend rich in both monoterpenes and sesquiterpene alcohols. Labdanum absolute provides a number of interesting characteristics to the blend. High in alpha-pinene, Labdanum is highly renewing and its distinctive aroma is prized for its ability to balance competing scents. The final product mirrors its chemical structure and aromatic profile, being highly grounding and renewing. A drop or two of doTERRA Console on your shirt collar can be that little extra you need to help counteract feelings of grief and sadness.

doTERRA Peace™ Reassuring blend is a fusion of floral and mint essential oils. The union of popular essential oils such as Lavender and Spearmint, along with the essence of some lesser-known plants such as Labdanum, creates a chemical profile rich in monoterpene esters and alcohols for a renewing and toning experience. The resulting aromatic profile is calming and promotes feelings of peace and reassurance. Diffuse doTERRA Peace at night to help promote the calming and restful sleep environment that you need to embrace the next day.

There are a few ways you can use these oils. Use aromatically in an essential oil diffuser. Apply 1 or 2 drops in your palms, rub hands together, cup in front of your nose, and inhale deeply (do not touch eyes). Dilute and apply topically to aromatherapy touch points such as the back of the neck, on the wrists, and over the heart.  
 
Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas.
