There are some very exciting things happening at the much-loved natural body care company, Bella Lucce! First of all, they just launched their brand new African Adventures collection, containing 8 wonderful new products. Secondly, in honor of both their new collection and their 7th birthday, they’re having a different sale each day of the month of September. Check it out here while there are still a couple of weeks left of the celebration!
A couple of weeks ago Bella Lucce generously hosted a giveaway-a-day for a week on their Facebook page and because I’m like an 80-year-old woman at a Bingo hall when it comes to giveaways, I was all over it. And I actually ended up winning a set of the entire new collection! It was definitely the highlight of my week, and the excitement continues as I try each of these wonderfully scented, moisturizing, natural products. Here are my findings (and favorites) on the new line!
The shampoo and conditioner, Bella Lucce’s first of each I believe, are simple (in a good way!) and effective–moisturizing yet not so much that it weighs my hair down. Similarly, the Moringa & Shea Cleansing bar is gentle, moisturizing, and so cool to display in your shower with its graphic black and white design! If you haven’t noticed, moisturizing is a key term in this new line, and the theme continues to the 100% natural lip balm, which tastes amazing–just like a Dreamsicle! And my husband likes it too because it’s not shiny at all–just a dose of delicious-tasting moisture for dry lips–something even a guy can appreciate.
Speaking of moisture, the two body creams in this line are going to be well-used this winter. They’re similar in scent (the scents of most of the products in this line are of a unique citrus note, which I adore) and in their moisturizing capabilities. The main difference I found, other than the active moisturizing ingredients, is the texture. From my picture below you can see that the Argan & Acacia Rich Body Crème (on the left) is smooth, dense and creamy, while the Tamanu Whipped Shea Butter (on the right) is a more airy and, as the name implies, whipped! I love both of them, but I think I prefer the whipped texture more–maybe just because it’s fun and unique!
On to the two products fighting with each other for my top spot–I’m just smitten with both of these products so much that I can’t possibly choose which one is my favorite! The Avocado & Ootanga Body Scrub is insane. I’ve mentioned before how the Bella Lucce Chianti & Grapeseed scrub is the best I’ve ever tried, and this new scrub is the slightly prettier twin! I say prettier just because I prefer the scent of this scrub to the Chianti one. But when I say it’s the twin I mean it’s just as exfoliating and moisturizing as the other I’ve tried. I was able to skip my lotion application this morning after using this scrub. Plus, the pink color with the black flecked kiwi seeds are really festive!
Finally, the Watermelon, Baobab & Banana Conditioning Masque is the ultimate face mask. Like the Chocolate Masque I’ve already praised, this mask is a 100% natural powder which you mix with water or a customizable mixer, as shown below. I used the yogurt and loved the results of this mask. My pores looked smaller, my skin more even and smooth. And when combined with yogurt it smells like a strawberry pop tart!

If you’re in the market for a birthday/hostess/new mom gift, anything from this new collection would be a great idea. Or if you’re just needing to pamper yourself I’d suggest taking advantage of the daily sales Bella Lucce is offering for the rest of September! You can’t go wrong with anything from this company.
