Luxury skincare, is without a doubt, one of my greatest pleasures. High quality antioxidant rich anti-aging formulas that boast great efficacy, the best ingredients available and that utilize cutting edge technology always capture my attention. However, in order to keep me captive they must also have divine textures that are a great pleasure to use. Part of the ritual of luxury skincare is that it must not only deliver on its promises, but must likewise feel ultra luxe.
One of my newest luxury skincare discoveries that is both ultra high quality and a tremendous pleasure to use is Bellatorra, which also happens to have recently launched at Barneys New York.
Bellatorra Skin Care was born out of Nathan Halsey's continued passion for health and wellness. Having collaborated with a team of scientists, physiologists, and chemists, Nathan developed a collection of performance enhancing formulas and supplements, later discovering the benefits of intense nutraceuticals in anti-aging skin care. Developed with powerful ingredients that are concentrated, and released in harmony with the skin's natural rhythm, Bellatorra targets the causes of accelerated aging and their visible effects.
Uplifting Mist and Cellular Renewal Complex separately, but the discovery that they paired so perfectly made it clear to me that they should treated as the perfect pair. I should note that I am currently testing their Cellular Renewal Serum, and have concluded that this line is so exceptional that I need to try the remaining four products (an eye cream, a face cream, a cleanser and a mask). Truthfully, it isn't often that a brand new line so thoroughly impresses me that I want to try everything that they make. This is definitely a line that needs to be on your radar.
Cellular Renewal Complex is a thick, but lightweight, fast-absorbing and non-greasy cream that is neither too thick, nor too watery. It dispenses through its pump without any difficulty, and a single pump provides enough cream for my face, neck and décolleté. The velvety smooth textured cream melts into the skin quickly and leaves skin soft, supple and ultra-hydrated. Furthermore, I immediately noted that my skin was more radiant, fine lines were plumped and my complexion appeared lifted and firmed. Over the period of a month, I noted that my skin tone appeared more even, and that a few spots of hyperpigmentation had faded. It has a light and delectable scent that seems to a combination of the Olive Leaf and Prickly Pear Extracts, but it is neither overpowering nor in the least bit cloying, and therefore should pose no problems for those among you with sensitivities to aromatic skincare products.
While Cellular Renewal Complex is formulated for normal to combination skin, it is so deeply moisturizing that drier skin types will benefit from the formula as well.
According to Bellatorra,
Ideal for normal to combination skin. This targeted and time-released, botanical and plant stem cell formula reduces fine lines and wrinkles, accelerates skin’s natural repair functions, and protects from environmental damage while targeting discoloration, uneven tone and preventing the appearance of future damage at the cellular level. Rich in antioxidants, polysaccharides, minerals and vitamins. This is truly a multi-dimensional anti-aging moisturizer.

Paraben-FreeUplifting Mist is a facial mist like no other, and on its own it boasts tremendous efficacy, but when used in conjunction with the Cellular Renewal Complex it is an antioxidant rich anti-aging force to be reckoned with. Described as a Botox alternative, Uplifting Mist deeply moisturizes the skin while simultaneously calming, smoothing, refreshing, energizing, lifting and firming it. Skin is left silky soft, smooth, supple and dewy. I like to spritz it on before the Cellular Renewal Complex has fully absorbed so that they sink into my skin simultaneously– the end result is glowing, healthy skin. The aroma is refreshingly crisp green that smells a bit like a fusion of Green Tea, Aloe Vera and Olive Leaf Extract, and it is utterly delectable.
According to Bellatorra,

In addition to its restorative benefits, this mist also protects from free radical damage and soothes irritated skin, revealing a younger, fresher and smoother complexion.
