Keeping with the brand’s theme, they have named both products with positive affirmations to empower your day. The brand, who previously donated 20% of every purchase to AAUW, will partner with the LGBT Center of Orange County during the month of June. In support of LGBT Pride Month, 20% of all mascara and eyeliner proceeds purchased on their website will be donated.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “I have gotten asked where I got my microblading done while wearing this, that speaks volumes”.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “My brows are sparse and need a lot of TLC. This was smudge proof, sweat proof and lasted long hours”.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “It is my new favorite eyebrow pencil & half the cost of the one I normally use. My brows are on point every day. Goes on easy, the color is spot on for me. I recommend this to all”.

This long-lasting, micro-tip pencil allows you to create individual-like hairs for a subtle or bold brow look. Its creamy wax-based formulation glides beautifully and naturally on skin. This waterproof pencil is stress-free to help you through any challenges you face in life. Pair with a light coat of “Eye Am Beautiful” mascara, and a nude hue of the REALHER lip gloss in your shade for a subtle, no make-up look.

REALHER‘s mission has always been to empower people through their inspiring makeup products, giving back, and volunteering. When the opportunity came to work with the GEANCO Foundation a year ago, RealHer knew they had to develop an innovative way to raise awareness. Through the GEANCO Foundation, the girls in Nigeria hand-crafted a variety of unique artwork.

Healthier Skin Lets Your Inner Beauty can Shine on The Outside

Winter weather can be very harsh on our skin, drying it out and causing irritation. Here are perfect self love routine for the cold season: warm clothes, a hot beverage and a rich, deeply moisturizing and rejuvenating cream with Shea Butter to soften the skin and Acai extract for its powerful antioxidants. You can help yourself with the cozy clothes or hot drink, and Bella Virtu Organics knows where you can find a great hydrating cream!

Helichrysum & Lavender Intense Hydrating Cream

A rich, deeply moisturizing and rejuvenating cream with Shea Butter to soften the skin and Acai extract for its powerful antioxidants. Lavender Oil calms, hydrates and repairs, while Helichrysum Essential Oil (Immortelle) heals and smooths fine lines. Formulated with natural humectants to deeply moisturize and essential oils to soothe skin distressed from harsh dry winter air and indoor heating.

Why you should use lavender oil in your skincare? Because it helps prevent breakouts, as well as moisturizing your skin. Lavender oil locks in moisture while fighting bacteria.
Rosemary & Lavender Cleansing Bar
This gentle cleansing bar is made with Coconut Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil, and Cocoa Butter to leave your skin soft and revitalized. Lavender Essential Oil soothes the skin, while Rosemary Leaf Oil is antibacterial and hydrating. It contains no harsh chemicals or sulfates found in traditional soaps, so it can be used daily to cleanse and remove all make-up. With a scent that uplifts and calms, it leaves your skin feeling clean, fresh, and nourished.
This cleansing Bar gives a deep clean but unlike traditional soap it doesn’t strip the skin of its natural oils. The Coconut Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil, and Cocoa Butter leave your skin revitalized and soft. With all natural and organic ingredients, it is healthy and gentle enough to use everyday. It also has healing properties including calming inflammation, and reducing irritation and redness. On top of that, lavender oil reduces the appearance of fine lines and plumps your skin, offering back your glow from within.
Moisturizing Radiance Facial Serum

Part of our Winter Care System. This serum rejuvenates, heals and smooths winter skin with Clary Sage and Helichrysum (Immortelle) Essential Oils. Safflower Oil deeply moisturizes, combating the drying effects of winter air and indoor heating. Over 50 applications in each bottle. A little goes a long way!

This Moisturizing Radiance Facial Serum rejuvenates, heals and smooths your skin. Dry climates can dehydrate and irritate your skin, so Bella Virtu Organics created this product to deeply moisturizes with Safflower Oil and heal with Immortelle Oil.

Antioxidant Eye Serum

Bella Virtu Organics best-selling Eye Serum is a customer favorite thanks to its powerful antioxidants from Pumpkin Seed Oil, healing Helichrysum Oil (Immortelle), and rejuvenating Rosehip Oil. It is light and easily absorbed, yet leaves your skin feeling softer, smoother and rejuvenated. Gently apply a drop or two to the under-eye area and see what people are fanatical about.  

Did you know that eye creams tend to be less effective for combating dark-circles and wrinkles?  That is why Bella Virtu Organics created Antioxidant Eye Serum! According to Dr. Mauricio, serums are a better option to tackle wrinkles, dark circles, reduce puffiness and help with improving the firmness of your skin (information via – The Difference between an Eye Cream and an Eye Serum).

Bella Virtu Organics is a brand that promotes the appreciation of small moments of joy through attention to the senses, especially smell, Bella Virtu Organics is a clean skincare line featuring organic premium essential oils and ingredients, such as exotic helichrysum, sweet orange, clary sage and acai pulp. One of five new products being introduced includes the Winter Care System: a Moisturizing Radiance Facial Serum, Intense Hydrating Cream, Rejuvenating Mask and two gentle, effective cleansers: Clary Sage Cleansing Oil, and a Rosemary & Lavender Cleansing Bar. The company’s original line of its bestselling Antioxidant Eye Serum, and its Vitamin C Facial Serum will continue to be sold with the new range, at both the brand’s online storefront and via Amazon.

All Bella Virtu Organics products are developed and made in a boutique facility in Utah that has been developing and making organic, clean skincare for over 20 years. Bella Virtu Organics only uses certified organic or clean ingredients, and the products are hand made in small batches with meticulous care and rigorous standards. Every ingredient is purposefully chosen to deliver a benefit, not just be present for a fancy marketing name. The oils are all cold-pressed so that the nutrients remain active and potent.

Bella Virtu Organics principles:

  • All ingredients are organic and clean. See “never use” list here.
  • All the ingredients are included to offer a real benefit. Bella Virtu Organics never put in an ingredient at a lower than useful quantity just to use its name in marketing.
  • The products are priced fairly based on the quality and quantity of effective, pure ingredients.
  • Where possible Bella Virtu Organics looks to reduce waste and ecological impact. For example, Bella Virtu Organics uses glass bottles and avoid plastic wherever possible.
  • Bella Virtu Organics doesn’t believe you need to be “fixed” or that wrinkles, sunspots, or aging skin are anything to be ashamed of.
  • Taking care of your skin using healthy ingredients is a way to be your best self and to let the beauty you have on the inside be best represented on the outside.

Bella Virtu Organics Mission:

“to bring a moment of joy into your day”
