La Bella Review and Product Giveaway!

It was just National Hispanic Heritage Month (9/15-10/15) and the brand La Bella is celebrating Hispanic American culture and Latin beauty.

For years, Latinas have used unique beauty tips, tricks, and products to keep their hair and skin looking gorgeous. La Bella – the ultimate beauty secret among Latinas – provides superior styling, hair and skin care products to help all types of women looking flawless.

I have received the following products for my honest review — and I am giving away a set of these products! Instructions to enter are below:

La Bella Anti-Sponge Shampoo and Conditioner

Anti-Sponge Shampoo and Conditioner ($3.99 each, 25.4 fl. oz in bottle) — For luscious locks, wash and hydrate your hair with La Bella® Anti-Sponge Shampoo and Conditioner which are enriched with unique blend of Vitamins B5, E and C, Avocado Oil and Quinoa Protein that have authentic Latin roots known to keep your hair looking beautiful.

What I think: First of all, this is an excellent value.  You get a huge size of shampoo and/or for under $4 each!  Both products are very creamy and have a fruity scent.  I find that a little goes a long way with the conditioner, because it is so moisturizing!  I did notice that my hair is smoother after use.

La Bella Super Shine Polishing Serum

La Bella Super Shine Polishing Serum ($5.49 USD) — For polished bouncy hair, use La Bella Super Shine Polishing Serum! It provides heat protection while enhancing shine and leaves hair controllable smooth and shiny with its lightweight and alcohol-free formula.

What I think: I like to use this on my hair after blow drying it.  It usually is a little dry and frizzy afterward.  A little of this serum rubbed between my palms and applied to my hair restores shine and bounce!

La Bella Rose Hip Oil with Vitamin E

La Bella Rose Hip Oil with Vitamin E ($4.99 USD) — For smooth, wrinkle-free skin, try La Bella Rose Hip Oil and Vitamin E! It contain antioxidants, moisturizing properties and nutritional factors to rehydrate and rejuvenate skin and works to regenerate damaged skin tissue to reduce scars, stretch marks and skin spots.

What I think:  This oil hydrates so well!  I like to use it on my hands and elbows.  I have begun applying it to stretch marks and we will see how well it works!  It also smells really nice, like a musky floral.  The only thing I think needs improvement is the bottle.  It needs a better pouring method as it is just open and if it spills, it will get everywhere.

La Bella Cosmetic Gel with Snail Extract

My Beauty Faves Week of February 9-15, 2015

Happy Valentine’s Day!  I hope you are having a fun day being with friends, family or your love!

This week I’m loving a romantic cherry blossom fragrance, a refreshing facial toner, skincare that helps fade dark spots and smoothing hair care:

L'Occitane Cherry Blossom L'Eau  de Toilette
L’Occitane Cherry Blossom L’Eau de Toilette

L’Occitane Cherry Blossom L’Eau de Toilette ($45 1.7 fl. oz.) — Just like a cherry blossom, this delicious new fragrance lifts us out of that winter rut with first signs of a spring in a light, fruity scent of watermelon, blackcurrants and lemon. Adorable pink and red packaging designed by Provençal illustrator Charlotte Gastaut and authentic cherry extract from Lubéron, France, gives the product a romantic French touch – perfect for Valentine’s Day! Products are also available Fragrance Touch ($22), Moisturizing Milk ($25) and Hand Cream ($12).

What I think: This is fresh and sweet, perfect from Valentine’s Day through Summer (or all year round if you wish)!  It is so feminine, but bright as well. LOVE

Heaven Skincare Orange Flower Cell Renewal Hydrogel
Heaven Skincare Orange Flower Cell Renewal Hydrogel

Heaven Skincare Orange Flower Cell Renewal Hydrogel (10ml for $19.50, 30ml for $37.05 and 120ml for $78) — Clean, prime, hydrate and firm with Heaven Skincare’s self-healing hydrogels. Consisting of a cross link network of organic polymer-style molecules that calm, soothe and firm skin tissue, Heaven Skincare’s hydrogels deliver vital skin nutrients and hydration, making them more than just an ordinary toner. To use, apply after cleansing with a cotton ball or use as a primer before foundation.  Also available in Chamomile Desensitising and Peppermint Clarifying Hydrogels.

What I think: This gel is so refreshing and smells fantastic!  I notice that it calms my skin and makes it very smooth and soft.  I use it like a toner, before serums and moisturizers.  Great to use morning and night!

  • AMBI EVEN & CLEAR Foaming Cleanser

La Bella Anti-Sponge Shampoo and Conditioner
La Bella Anti-Sponge Shampoo and Conditioner

La Bella Anti-Sponge Shampoo and Conditioner ($3.99 each USD) —   Fluctuating temperatures and humidity levels as you go back and forth from the cold and damp outside to warm and dry inside can cause unwanted frizz and “puffy” looking hair. Fend off frizz and flyaways with a smoothing shampoo and conditioner with avocado oil that hydrates and seals hair to lock out excess moisture and other frizz factors.

What I think:  I suffer from frizzy hair all year, so I love trying something that can help tame it.  Used together, this shampoo and conditioner really helped smooth my hair and it stayed smooth until my next wash!

available at drugstores near you.
