[BELLE BAR FIRST IMPRESSIONS]
The lovely women at @bellebarorganic
sent me a couple awesome products to try, and today I finally got around to using the *Customizable Vitamin C Radiance Mask. Before I get into the specifics of this product, here’s some information about the company:
Belle Bar is a women-run, family-owned business, with a passion for creating all-natural, cruelty-free products with 100% active ingredients. No fillers. Just the goods. Knowing these things, I was already excited, then I found out I could customize my own mask??? Brilliant! 🙌🏻
The Vitamin C Radiance Base Mask components are Vitamin C (brightens), Oyster Shell (boosts collagen), Camu Camu (adds luster), Babassu Seed Oil (hydrates), then you can choose up to three mix-ins from a selection of twenty-one (21!) total ingredients. Don’t know what to choose? That’s okay, because Belle Bar gives recommendations + descriptions of what each ingredient can do for your skin. I decided to continue with the theme of the mask (brightening, fading scars and blemishes) and pick a couple more brightening ingredients—Turmeric & Buttermilk (which also softens the skin)—and Hibiscus (evens skin tone). Customization doesn’t stop there, either. You can also get creative and use a mask-boosting “activator” instead of only water to bind the brown sugar-like “powder” into something that can be applied to the skin. They recommend using other natural ingredients, of course (i.e. Rose Water, Egg Whites, Yogurt, Coconut Milk, or Aloe Vera Juice, etc).
I used 100% Pure Honey for more hydration, with a little water to create the consistency I wanted. And I won’t lie. It’s messy. I had little granules all over my sink and floor, but once the mask was in place, it was good to go. No flaking. After 20 minutes, I rinsed with warm water and enjoyed some nice, gentle exfoliation (we LOVE a multitasking mask). Again, I won’t lie, the Turmeric tinted my face just a little (lololol), but luckily, I had nowhere to be today and the results were fabulous.
