Acai Anti-Oxidant Cleansing Creme

Beauty minimalism is something seldom sought after by those who buy beauty products, but for those who want a more natural, yet simple way for beauty, Bambola Beauty may be the answer!

Although not organic, they have all natural skincare formulated products at decent prices.

I had the pleasure of receiving 2 small samples from them; their Acai Cleansing Creme and their Lip Repair Balm.

Their Acai Cleansing Creme is really nourishing, softening and gentle. They include no surfactants so there is no foaming action, but it cleanses your skin really well without stripping it of natural oils. Included in it’s formula are nourishing sunflower oil and brightening mandarin oil, lemon juice extract, and acai extract for vibrant, healthy skin. I really love this cleansing creme for removing makeup! I think if you have normal skin, you may be able to skip a moisturizer using this; it’s that hydrating. I would recommend this one more for normal to dry skin types and maybe combination in cold winter. It’s great at removing makeup for me, but it’s so hot right now that it makes me far too oily to use in the Summer. Actually, for me to solely use this as a cleanser, it would need to be super windy and cold otherwise I just could not do it. That doesn’t make it bad; just not right for my skin type, though I think it would be heavenly for those with dry, mature skin or normal skin. Someone with combination to dry may also benefit in the fall/winter.

I also tried their Lip Repair Balm which comes in a simple chap stick tube and features a very simple list of ingredients: Beeswax, Coconut, Olive Oil, Castor Oil, Honey, Real Vanilla, Stevia. I really love that the ingredient list is short and simple and this lip balm works really well! It’s very nourishing, has a sweet subtle scent and flavor, and it’s easily absorbed into the lips. I feel like it literally melts into my skin. I’ve been using it on and off for a few months and it’s really helped keep my lips hydrated. I highly recommend this one, though I think $9 for it is a bit steep.

Overall, I really love how simple this brand is. It’s the modern furniture for Beauty in my mind and it takes all the steps of natural beauty and makes them simple and straightforward. Although I think their products are a bit expensive, I do like that they are natural and that’s something I can appreciate. I think this will especially benefit those who don’t want something complicated, but still want something natural that works. The look and feel is classy and conscientious.

Blûm Naturals Daily Cleansing and Makeup Remover Face Towelettes

I was recently sent these awesome facial towelettes from Blûm Naturals for review and I absolutely love them! Previously, I was such a huge fan of the Yes to Cucumbers Face Wipes, but now I think I am converting over to these! They are really convenient, have an awesome natural ingredient list that is all plant derived and they are nearly the same price as the ones from Yes to Cucumbers and just as refreshing!

Blûm Naturals Tea Tree Daily Cleansing & Make up Remover Towelettes for Combination to Oily Skin

I really enjoyed these tea tree towelettes because they help refresh my skin when it’s hot out, but the tea tree in them is a great antibacterial ingredient for me in the summer when I’m most likely to be breaking out a lot due to the heat.

 A lot of people online seem to be crediting this with helping to clear acne up. Although I don’t have enough breakouts at the moment to attest to that, I do know that the ingredients in this have been shown to be effective against acne. If nothing else, these really helps to mattify my skin and control oiliness when it gets super hot. It is also great for taking along in your bag when you’re at an amusement park on a hot day, I’ve found!

 Blûm Naturals Chamomile Daily Cleansing & Make up Remover Towelettes for Dry & Sensitive Skin

These towelettes are a bit less medicinal smelling than the tea tree ones and more relaxing and calming than anything. I really liked treating redness with these! They are just as refreshing as the tea tree, but they seem a lot more calming and mild. I definitely enjoyed them as well, but I found that my sister who has dry skin had more of a use for them than I did so I passed them along like the good sister that I am, of course! 😉

All in all, I enjoyed these facial towelettes a lot. I find that these are especially useful in the summertime as a refreshing pick me up or even to take on short overnight trips when I don’t feel like bringing everything but the kitchen sink with me. I definitely recommend these because they are so affordable and feature an awesome list of natural ingredients tailored to your skin type.
