A few months ago, when I was in the midst of my major skin meltdown and not getting the results I wanted with just my skincare, I decided to try something different. I decided to cut out as much excess sugar as possible from my diet for two weeks and only drink water. I thought that maybe my skin issues went deeper than the surface and that maybe what I was putting into my body was contributing to the painful cystic spots I had all over my face.
Sure enough, after two weeks of no cookies, candy, and soda, my face started to clear up. I knew then that I needed to start taking better care of myself because my skin was a visual representation of how much disregard I was giving to my body. I also wanted to do some research into some skincare that targeted more than just topical solutions.
Introducing BeBe & Bella:
BeBe & Bella is an innovative skin care brand because their product go beyond just products you put on your skin. Their skin care line also includes probiotics, which enhance the skin’s protective moisture barrier and improves digestive health. Like I learned earlier this year, what I put in my body matters just as much as what I put on my skin.
What I tried: Probiotic Essentials Starter Kit
I was sent the Probiotic Essentials Starter Kit to try, which was a great way to really be introduced to all of the top BeBe & Bella products. The set included products that target fine lines, fade age spots and reduce inflammation. I also was sent two oral supplements, including the Skin Lightening Oral Supplement and the Collagen Pro Oral Supplement.
Probiotics, well-known for their benefits in balancing the digestive system, when applied topically also encourage faster cell turnover, enhance the skin’s protective moisture barrier, and reverse photodamage to the skin. I’ve never thought about adding probiotics into my skincare before, but after reading the WHY behind BeBe & Bella, it totally made sense! I was excited to try everything out.
When I first got these products to try, I decided not to fully switch over in one night because I didn’t want my skin to have another meltdown. I slowly replaced each of my current products with one of the BeBe & Bella products through a week until I was strictly using the products on their own. Even though each product performed well on its own, I definitely noticed that I got better results once I was using the whole system together, as intended. There are a few products that definitely stood out to me while using this line.
Facial Essence – I always get excited about essence-type products and this one did not disappoint. It was a very light-weight product but packs a punch in the active ingredients. This innovative formula helps increase the skin’s natural flora defenses, which helps reduce the loss of moisture.
Hydrating Night Cream – This probiotic cream was probably one my favorite product to use from the kit. I loved that this product delivered SO much hydration to my skin without making my face feel greasy or heavy with product. The cream literally melted into my skin! I knew that it was working wonders because my nose was super raw and dry from blowing it last week during my cold. Within two days of applying this cream both day and night, my skin had recovered and felt great!
Is it Worth the Hype?
I’ll be honest and say I’ve only been using this skin care line exclusively for two weeks, so I have yet to see any super life-changing results yet. That being said, my skin does feel very moisturized and it did not have the typical major freak out the day after I flew across the country to my sister’s wedding.
I love the idea of adding probiotics in to my skincare regimen and although I’m not a huge fan of taking actual pills, if the supplements continue to keep my skin clear, I’ll definitely take them. I’ve found that taking them at night before bed is the best way for me to get through them!
I think this skincare line is definitely worth the hype for anyone who has been trying traditional skincare lines to clear up problematic skin. The use of probiotics goes beyond the idea of just topical products and helps other parts of your body improve in order to promote better skin.
