Bali Cosmetics review | Part II: skin and body care

Klik hier voor de Nederlandse versie.

In part I of my Bali Cosmetics review I already told you about two hair oils and a hand cream from Bali Cosmetics, and today it’s time to have a closer look at three skin and body products that I received. Ready for part II? Alrightie then, here we go!

Nacha Naturals Bali Moor Beauty Bar

When I found this strange round little thingie in my Bali Cosmetics package I honestly had no idea what it was. Luckily it came with a little note that explained the purpose of this alien-looking product. The Nacha Naturals Bali Moor Beauty Bar is a face soap with Moor clay that contains medicinal plants and herbs. It purifies and tones the skin and has anti-inflammatory and pore-tightening capacities. This makes the Moor Beauty Bar perfect for oily and impure skin like mine. You have to apply the soap on wet skin, massage it in and leave it on for about one and a half minute before rinsing it off with water. Those with very oily skin *raises hand* can leave it on a few extra minutes.

The smell of the Moor Beauty Bar is very pleasant. Or at least I think it is. It’s a very natural earthy smell, and I like that. It gives me that great I-am-so-in-touch-with-nature feeling. I use the soap in the morning after cleansing, and I notice that it keeps my skin oil-free for longer. I still have to reapply mattifying powder throughout the day to keep all the oil at bay, but my skin gets less shiny and I get the impression that my pores look a bit smaller too*. And I am also very happy with the anti-inflammatory capacities of the Moor Beauty Bar. I have been suffering from acne again a lot this past year, and anything that can suppress those nasty little spots can count on my enthusiasm.
* they are still way too big for my liking though, and if I could I’d go through life poreless.

Price: 34.90 CHF at Bali Cosmetics.

Utama Spice Green Leaf Face Mask

Review (Bali Cosmetics part II) (2)

This face mask slash scrub promises to tone and rejuvenate the skin and to make it look radiant. The mask contains guava leaf that tightens the skin (hurray), vitamins A, B and C to rejuvenate it (double hurray) and Jack fruit and rice flower to fight acne (triple hurray). They already had me at tighten and rejuvenate, but the acne-fighting capacities of the mask really turn it into a winner for me. To my surprise there isn’t ready-made mask in the jar, but instead there’s a green powder inside that you need to mix with water into a paste. You apply the paste on your face, let it dry, and once it has dried up you can gently rub it off, scrubbing your skin in the process. And you can remove the last leftover bits with water.

Strange little mask, huh? It does get a bit messy, but it’s definitely worth a try. I use the mask once a week and my skin always feels soft and clean afterwards. Does my skin look super tight all of a sudden, do  I suddenly look ten years younger and is all my acne gone? Of course not, but that’s fine. I believe in maintaining healthy skin and in preventing rather than treating skin problems and skin aging. Products like this work, even if you don’t see any immediate dramatic changes. I can feel that this mask is doing my skin good, and I will definitely continue to use it.

Utama Spice Green Leaf Face & Body Butter

Review (Bali Cosmetics part II) (5)

I am a real body butter fan, and so I was delighted to find a body butter in my Bali Cosmetics package. This butter with anti-oxidants and essential oils is suitable for face and body, but with all the butter and oil in the formula I didn’t think it would a good idea to use it on my face. But that’s fine, because that way there’s more left to use on my body. The texture of the Utama Spice Green Leaf Face & Body Butter is thick and creamy, and the color is guacamole green. The smell is subtle and very natural. Applying body lotion after showering is one of my favorite beauty rituals, and so I really enjoy using this deliciously thick body butter. It’s such a mood booster! And the product also keeps my skin very happy, because it makes it nice and soft and keeps it moisturized around the clock.

  5. Looks nice!

  6. Something about that mask screams “Get Me.NOW” XD I’m loving the sound of the body butter too! I’m a sucker for natural skin and body care. You can easily pursuade me to buy some anytime. Oh and a sucker for cute packaging too ^^”

  7. Haha, ik moest wel lachen om je review. Ohja en vergrote porien zijn inderdaad niet zo mooi,ik ben ook voor een porieloos leven… Al zal dat ook zo zijn nadelen hebben ben ik bang… (stel je voor dat puistjes nooit meer hun weg naar buiten vinden, krijg je wel een heel raar bobbelig gezicht van ben ik bang)

  8. I like the look of the face mask AND it looks like it smells good!

  9. Looks good but I know me well enough that I would never make the effort to mix a mask like that…I’m too lazy!

  11. Wat een coole en aparte producten zeg :O vooral dat mud-balletje :O en niks mis met af en toe je handen ‘vies’ maken met zo’n maskertje.

  12. That looks so good. Sometimes I wish my skin was oilier so that I can try all those masks.

  13. Haha ‘alien looking product’ die Moor bar, ziet

  19. the soap bar looks lovely ! well reviewed doll <3 <3

  20. Interessante producten. Die eerste zeep lijkt me super! Doet me denken aan black african soap;) hoe gaat t in de patisserie? X

  21. Ik zou zo graag u badkamer eens zien :p product overload!

  22. Hmmm, die Moor beauty bar ziet er zéér interessant uit. In Bali gebruikten ze altijd héélijk ruikende olies voor de massages. Hemels!

  23. De body butter klinkt hemels :-)

  24. Dit lijken me hele fijne producten!

  25. Le beurre pour le corps doit être hyper nourrissante pour la peau ! J’en aurais besoin en ce moment ;)

  30. Die beauty bar ziet er inderdaad heel vreemd uit, precies een steen :p

  31. De body butter lijkt me heerlijk! x

  32. De body butter lijkt me heel erg fijn, lekker voedend. Jij schrijft altijd zulke leuke reviews. Al lees ik persoonlijk wel liever in het Nederlands, maar ik snap dat je in het Engels schrijft!

  33. The body butter sounds lovely!

  34. Mmm guacamole. Over zo’n zwarte zeepbar heb ik volgens mij al eens gehoord. Erg goed voor heel vettige huid omdat het niet chemisch en agressief werkt. Groene producten laten me altijd heel groen voelen, natuurbewust etc.

  35. I love body care products!

  53. Lijken mij allemaal hele fijne producten, maar de Face & Body Butter spreekt mij wel het meeste aan. Ik zou hem ook zeker wel eens op mijn gezicht willen proberen met mijn behoorlijk droge huid.

  54. I am liking the first two and i do love herbs and natural products. Acne is a major issue for me and it is quite bad at the moment. I have not heard of this brand but after reading your reviews, i feel i should try them. Fingers cross xx

  55. Nice post! Really need to read this, as sometimes my skin likes to play up when I don’t eat as healthily as I should..
