HOLY GRAIL alert! This is at the TOP of my must-have skincare list. I love using skincare products that are natural and contain essential oils, so my skincare routine was originally filled with staple products that contain natural ingredients/benefits. But Bella Aura is this and so much more. I am absolutely SO impressed with the effectiveness of this line of skincare, and I cannot stress enough how I think everyone needs to hear about and try these products.
Proudly made in Canada, Bella Aura’s philosophy is to have you feeling your best, because beauty starts from the inside. They believe “When you’re at your best, the positive spirit within you emanates from the surface of your skin, spreading illuminating energy into the world. At Bella Aura, our mission is simple: to craft pristine natural skincare infused with groundbreaking technology so that your complexion radiates your pure inner glow.”* This is so heart-warming to hear. I love brands that believe in telling women to embrace their natural beauty, and that they are beautiful as they are. I also love when they stress that feeling beautiful inside is where it all starts, this is what Bella Aura believes, as do I; so naturally I am intrigued by this brand.
I had the absolute pleasure of speaking with founder and CEO, Yasmine Jones. She is a genuinely kind woman and a very spiritual person. Yasmine and I share a lot of the same views, we both believe in meditation and the power of positive thinking, and being happy with yourself as you are. Sometimes companies can make you feel as though you need their products to “fix” or “mask” the “problems” you think you have. I find this so sad, because I think it’s important to support brands like Bella Aura who encourage you to feel you are perfect as you are, and to be happy and secure with yourself and that this is beauty.
Yasmine was kind enough to send me the entire line of skincare products to try out and review- 5 products total.
“Each of our products contains our exclusive Kamilah blend of four natural botanical extracts loaded with a spectrum of energizing vitamins, minerals and Omega 3,6,9 Fatty Acids.” *
- Gentle Purifying Cleanser
- Daily Moisture Repair Emulsion (moisturizer)
- Antioxidant Booster Emulsion
- Night Cellular Renewal Emulsion
- Instant Lifting Eye Contour
Note- Emulsion: “Water based moisturizer with oil. It is lightweight and quickly absorbs into the deepest layers of your skin, leaving no greasy residue. An emulsion has the ability to maintain hydration levels and prevent moisture loss from your skin’s surface. It is beneficial for all skin types, including people with oily skin, as it is a water base and does not cause pore clogging.” *

I have been using the entire line going on my third week. The texture of the products are not thick, they are very light. It spreads so easily on the skin and absorbs extremely well. I was very impressed with the lightweight formula, and how clean and fresh my skin felt after using them all. Within the first few days I noticed a difference in my skin. My skin felt so soft and looked smoother. Now after continued use it still feels soft, looks smooth and feels more “pure”. This may sound strange haha, but to be honest my skin just feels overall cleaner deep down. In addition to this, you know those stubborn blackheads you can never seem to get rid of? Yes, gross I know! Well Bella Aura skincare has significantly diminished the appearance of those on my skin, I am absolutely amazed. No other product has EVER done this for me- ever.
My favourite product out of the 5 if I had to pick one, is the Instant Lifting Eye Contour- just WOW. I noticed a difference after just one use. My under eye area is brighter and although I am still young and do not have “wrinkles”, it has made the lines I do have much smoother, and my under eye concealer blends in like a dream now. It works so well, I looked in the mirror in the morning after the first use and couldn’t get over it.
I also had the pleasure of interviewing Yasmine to ask her a few additional questions regarding her brand and her views:
Q.1 Chantal: What does Bella Aura mean?
Yasmine: It means a beautiful aura. Your own reflective image that represents both inner and outer beauty, the deep glow from within that illuminates your complexion.
Q. 2 Chantal: What is your number one tip for feeling beautiful inside and out?
Yasmine: Beauty is about living your life and being happy with yourself inside and out. Being happy that doesn’t mean that everything is perfect, it means that you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections. You create your beauty with your attitude, behavior and actions.
Q. 3 Chantal: If you could use one word to describe Bella Aura Skincare what would it be?
Q. 4 Chantal: What is one piece of advice you would give your younger self?
Yasmine: Happiness is when you feel good about yourself without feeling the need for anyone else’s approval. You live life on your own term instead of buckling to society’s pressures. Surround yourself with positive, spiritual and loving people that bring you joy and success in all areas of your life. Be grateful for what you already have and you will attract more good things. Gratitude is a powerful process for shifting your energy and bringing more of what you want in life. Love yourself for who you are.
I encourage you to read Yasmine’s story here. It is truly touching and explains how Bella Aura came about.
I give Bella Aura skincare a 10 out of 10. I am blown away by the company philosophy, research, formula and performance/effectiveness of the products. Trust me, you NEED to try this, you will not regret it. In addition to the fact that this skincare line produces results, you would also be supporting a brand that is proudly Canadian, and that has a founder that is truly an inspirational and beautiful person inside and out.
