Bambola Beauty Review: Premium Natural Skin Care


Okay, I’ll admit it. For all my tinkering in homemade natural beauty products, there are times when those recipes go horribly wrong… like the exfoliating citrus mask that gave me an ugly rash the week before my wedding. Some things are best left to the pros, and let me tell you, if you’re going to trust your skin to any company, you might as well trust it to a team of chemists working with all gentle, safe, natural ingredients – like Bambola Beauty.

Founded by a mother/daughter duo with decades of combined experience in natural skin care, Bambola Beauty offers a range of premium products that allow you to customize your own routine based on your skin type. They sent me an adorable little set of tiny samples to try, and while all the products were nice, there were two standouts: the Acai Anti-Oxidant Cleansing Crème and the Volcanic Mineral Scrub.

While it’s tough to evaluate the long-term effects of a product from a small sample, I can say with confidence that these two products are well worth the premium price tag at $38 and $42 apiece, respectively. This combo was a big help in de-scalifying my winter skin.

The Acai Cleansing Crème is packed with Vitamin C and beta hydroxy to gently slough off dead cells while promoting renewal with calendula and acai and moisturizing with sunflower seed oil. And while I didn’t think the Volcanic Mineral Scrub was going to work all that well, given its extraordinarily smooth texture, it was great – leaving my face feeling toned and conditioned.

It’s also nice to know that Bambola Beauty products are made without preservatives or animal testing, and a portion of proceeds go to the Save the Earth Foundation, which funds ecological research and raises awareness about environmental issues. You also get a free sample and free shipping with every order.
