    Bella Boneca Restore Serum

    If you’re a regular reader of my blog you would know how much I adore natural skincare products. I also have a HUGE preference for products that are not tested on animals.  Meet Bella Boneca, a natural skincare range that that is this and more! They are 100% paraben free, locally produced and their packaging is made out of recyclable material. It doesn’t get much better than this.

    More About Bella Boneca

    They are passionate about people, the planet and animals. These 3 cornerstones are at the foundation of everything that they as individuals and a business do. They are not perfect but they are continuously striving to make a difference. Every bit helps and they hope that we join them on this exciting journey!

    Bella Boneca Restore Serum

    I got sent their restore serum to test and try out and I’ve been using it for the past two weeks.

    Bella Boneca Says: This is a Serum that nourishes and restores your skin’s natural oils to improve complexion and invigorate all skin types. Your skin is left hydrated, soft and supple. Regular use improves complexion. So whether you need an extra boost of hydration after a long flight or you use it daily, this is one product that you will become addicted to.

    Ingredients:  A unique blend of Jojoba Oil, Rosehip Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Apricot Kernel, Ylang Ylang, Tea Tree and Vitamin E Oils.

    Packaging:  The serum comes in a pump bottle made out of clear recyclable materials.  You can easily pump out the perfect amount of product to use. I like that you can see the amount of product still left too.

    I say

    After moving back from Johannesburg about 2 months ago my skin was severely traumatised from the climate difference. It being winter and the weather being hot one day and cold the next isn’t helping either. My eczema flared up and I started seeing dry patches where I’m usually oily. I also realized my skin felt super sensitive and the other products I’ve been using felt a bit too harsh so I stopped using them for now. My skin literally hurt.

    I slowly started using the Bella Boneca Restore-Serum in the evening at first. I noticed a difference in hydration right away. As soon as my skin felt better and looked more radiant I started using the serum in the morning as a moisturizer. My skin is glowy and radiant and hasn’t felt this good in weeks. I used the serum under my makeup too and it came out looking very dewy. The serum really calmed the eczema down (with the help of one night’s epizone application) and it hasn’t flared up again.

    The serum smells absolutely amazing as well. Very feminine and fresh. It’s not overpowering and fades away.

    Stockists and Pricing

    The serum retails for R550 from the Bella Boneca website and they offer free shipping on all orders R550 and over. You can save 10% by using my discount code “withelizabethh” on checkout! PS. You can purchase this serum for R405 for a limited time on Zando.
