You know you’ve stumbled onto an actual beauty secret when you begin to see results on your skin after your very first use. That’s how I felt the moment I used Bella Aura’s Gentle Purifying Cleanser.
It’s as though my skin was waiting for the Bella Aura natural skin care line and wanted to drink it up!
I don’t even know where to start this beauty review. Do I talk about the amazing clean ingredients first? Or the feeling of the products on my skin? Maybe I should begin with how my skin looks; glowing and healthy.
I have lots of skin care products in my bathroom cabinet and I do have some great favourites. But rarely have I come across an entire skin care line that truly performs. Am I right? Many of us have preferred products from several different lines – “star players” from many brands. What I was surprised to find while using the Bella Aura skin care line for the last 3-4 weeks is how much I liked all of the products.
More than that, I liked that they delivered!
A Look Behind the Brand
Let me rewind a bit, because I do want to share with you the beautiful intent behind this Canadian beauty brand.
Bella Aura’s founder, Yasmine, experienced serious skin issues that left her scarred with no solution. She came to understand how a person with skin issues feels inside and how difficult it is on their mind and spirit. She didn’t create Bella Aura to make you perfect, to her, perfection is an illusion. Her goal was more on a spiritual level. She wants to make you feel beautiful from the inside out so that your inner and outer beauty shines through.
This brand statement and Yasmine’s story resonated with me, as someone who has also dealt with acne, because the promise here isn’t about perfection, but rather a gentle solution to achieving beautiful skin through natural products. Which are more than just a skin care line – they are a beauty ritual in of themselves. With each product, there is the light scent of blended Argan, Fig de Barbary, Neroli and Nigella natural oils and as you use each one, gently massaging into the skin, you feel the effects of the products on your state of being as well. I find myself calmed when I apply the Night Cellular Renewal Emulsion and invigorated when I put on the Antioxidant Booster Emulsion in the morning.
I don’t think this feeling is a coincidence – it’s Bella Aura’s exclusive Kamilah Blend.
During a trip to Morocco, Yasmine discovered the beauty secrets of the ancient Berbers, tribes of Morocco, who refer to themselves as Amazigh (meaning the free people) and live on the edge of the Sahara, one of the severest climates in the world.
For centuries, the Berbers have used natural plants to protect their skin from these harsh elements. Today, science has confirmed that the ingredients used in the ancient formulas of natural oils passed down through generations are rich in vitamins and minerals that are ideal for modern skin care products.
Bella Aura Skincare, inspired by the wisdom of the ancient Berbers, have included the exclusive blend of natural oils (Argan, Fig de Barbary, Neroli and Nigella) in our products. We refer to this as Kamilah, which means “complete”.

What I Love about Bella Aura
Bella Aura is a luxury natural skin care line that is made with pure ingredients. Their formula combines the benefits of a serum with a luxurious emulsion (water-based moisturizer and botanical oils) – which is perfect for all skin types, including oily skin like mine. It seems counterintuitive to use oil on oily and acne-prone skin, however the formula is lightweight and maintains proper hydration levels which actually can regulate over production of sebum. I absolutely love the Antitoxidant Booster! It delivers peptides to the skin which boost cell renewal and helps reduce spots and redness.
Overall, I’m truly taken with this line and how it’s left my skin feeling. I look forward to using some of the products every day as part of my beauty regimen and really enjoy their visible effects on my skin.
