Bellevue London – Luxury skincare range for all skin types
Posted by JUSTNADIENE on January 15, 2018
Having a great skincare routine is certainly my tip for having a perfected makeup look. Recently Bellevue reached out to me with their luxury skincare range which I am delighted to share with you now.
Designed to cover the needs of the contemporary woman who, like me want to combine a busy lifestyle and personal care. Of course having top quality products in order to achieve this is vital. As you get past your mid-twenties, your skin loses elasticity and so a skin care regime has been more important now than in previous years. Bellevue London aims to be a pioneer in cellular anti-ageing therapies and cutting edge biotechnology, by intercepting the ageing process at a cellular level. This is why I was keen to give it the range a go.
Since Bellevue pride themselves on selecting the finest certified ingredients that are blended together to offer the best care for your delicate skin this sounded like something I really wanted to try. My skincare routine is a part of the day where I get to take time to myself which I really enjoy and what you make the best it can be.
As you know my skin is very complex and although it is getting better, I am still learning. Due to the ranges’ richness in folic acid and glycolic acid, this treatment is also offering exciting results in the treatment of oily skin: it opens pores blocked by serum, renews and triggers the regeneration of skin damaged by acne. Suitable to all skin types and all ages. There were tonnes of more benefits which can be found on their website so be sure to check it out.
I was lucky enough to receive the entire Bellevue range consisting of Facial Serum, Eye gel, Day and Night Cream to try out which I have been using since the beginning of December. I have ensured that I have used it for enough time to be able to give my thoughts around its results.
To be used around three times a week on the eye contour area. It is literally just a clear light weight gel in terms of consistency. I like to leave it to sink in after application however in the evening I light to also place some cream under my eyes afterwards as in the winter, this area can get really dry.
Day & Night cream
The importance of creams is ensuring that you also apply this to your neck. The texture is like whipped cream and really does feel amazing to put on.
I feel like this Bellevue range has made my skin definitely feel fuller and smoother with only one single spot within the entire time (hugely rare for me). The main difference I felt is in my cheeks where I actually feel like I have some as they are fuller. Also I feel like my skin is less oily and just a lot more settled in general. So if you are looking to invest more into your skincare then be sure to check their website out.
January, the perfect time to review everything you do, and switch it up if needed. I'm not a skincare expert. Back in October at the Olympia Beauty show, I had a skin consultation and had one of those scan things that delves deep into your face to see any problem areas that you may not be aware of, and what vitamins or products would be most tailored to your face. I kind of left it as that for a while, as some of the products suggested, were quite expensive and my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish would do me just fine for now. Bellevue London then got in touch, and offered to send me a few products from their range to try over the last few months, and today I thought I'd share the results.
A day and a night cream:
Both are rather thick creams, so suiting the drier skinners of us (did that make sense?) My skin type changed per season and may be completely different from year to year so trying to find a skin care product that I'll use over and over, can be a challenge. I'll happily use a thick, hydrating night cream as with my usual 11 hour sleep routine, it has enough time to sink in. Day creams that are this formula aren't usually my type to go for, as the 40 mins I have in the morning mean I need a quick drying moisturiser, or risk my primer and foundation being one big clumpy mess on my face once I walk out the door. If however, you are dry and DO need that extra bit, both of the creams aren't half bad. They say they've included a whole host of fancy salts and vitamins that I'll have no idea what does what so I shant bore you with it. I also use the night cream everyday if that's any sort of help xo
An eye gel:
'Erase fine lines, wrinkles and crow's feet' take any product with a pinch of salt as natural aging is nothing to worry about. The brand says the eye gel can help with elasticity, which at my age (21 is old now), I should probably start looking into. I haven't really got and problems with my eye area, expect the bags that seem to happen but I call them the stress sag, so I can't provide too much of an opinion of the product. However, I do believe that using a range of products from one company is very beneficial, sometimes over mixing and matching so it can only be a good thing (don't shoot me).
Completely against all better judgement, I started using this in the morning as a base for my makeup. The thinness of the Facial serum made a great layer to put my primer on top of as it set really quickly. It promises to help with evening out skin tones, which if works, would be great as I have red cheeks (free blush anyone?) that can sometimes show through foundation.
Overall, I was shocked at how much I've stuck to using certain products and how my skin felt after using them. I expect the brand to be more well known this year so if you fancy grabbing anything off the site, click here and using code wkdn50bv for 50% off!

Incredibly soft, smooth,
and almost flawless
Bellevue of London also have an amazing facial serum that I have been trialling for the last 4 weeks too.
I was lucky enough to meet a very nice gentleman at the Beauty Blogger Awards, who had just created Bellevue – a luxury skin care range. Apart from being lovely, you could see he had REAL passion for his products so when he asked me to try them out I was obviously more than happy too ( My belief has always been that people with passion create GREAT products – and I wasn’t wrong!)
So Bellevue London, what is it about? Luxury skincare products that take inspiration from the city with the highest quality, standard and classical style. They are so sure you will LOVE their products they offer a guarantee that you will be happy with the products when you buy them, first use them, or even when you use them a year from now. Thats pretty big words, so how does it hold up? Ive been trying it for the past 3 weeks to give it a realistic run.
Gorgeous, high quality, strong, neutral, and clean looking. Ideal for a proud display in the bathroom! They come with cute little ingredient booklets inside.
The pots are really strong and unscrew/screw nicely. Pumps works smoothly and deliver the perfect amount into the hand (sounds a bit of a basic comment but this is really important to me – when a product pumps out too much or too little, it annoys me more than it should! haha). The pots are really large and flat, so it looks it looks very high quality and like you have a lot of cream – even though it is actually 50ml – which is the same as most skincare brands
The skin test
So as I said in the beginning of this post – I have been using this for just under a month (I like to really try out the skin care products before I ever blog about them!)
So lets talk about the Restorative Day cream first. This is a texture unlike anything other I have tried, the cream is thick ( something I’ve very familiar with as my skin is so dry) but when its applied to the skin it doesn’t feel too heavy, and its not greasy or oily….Whats in it? Snail Extract – Yes you heard that right, snails rebuild their skin when damaged so this helps to restore the healthy, youthful appearance of your skin naturally. It also is designed to stimulates the natural production of collagen elastin fibres, glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans which are the secrets of the plushest of skin.
The night repair cream is also made with snail extract – which also helps face harmonise its pigmentation tone, helps scars, acne scars and dark spots as well as promoting the nighttime cell renewal. Th texture is a bit thicker but still has a velvety finish on the skin – so I think it would be suitable for different skin types.
This Eye gel helps rejuvenate and promises it penetrates deep into the skin. It also has caffeine in it which is a renowned eye ingredient to wake the skin up. The texture is light and gel like and its really refreshing and cooling to apply.
The Facial serum which I apply before the moisturiser is enriched with vitamins and minerals and claims to help restore the skins elasticity, and increase brightness. Again this is quite a light texture which felt nice on the face.
So how did it go?
My main comment is that it feels lovely and luxurious to apply. I love that its dense, but not heavy and doesn’t leave the face feeling greasy so applying make up is absolutely fine after ( and won’t leave you ca greasy mess a few hours later). I have only been using this for three weeks so I can’t comment on longer term results but I can say I really enjoyed using this and my skin definitely felt like it had some goodness applied to it and my skin felt really comfortable once applied! My favourite of the products was the cooling eye gel as this really felt lovely to put on – and I’m always down for an eye gel! I’m looking forward to using this more to see the longer term results that these products can give! I really liked the cream on my neck scar as it really made it feel comfortable and I really wanted to get the most of the snail extract on it – to see what effect it had! Obviously this is a massive scar so I can’t see any immediate difference but it really does feel nice on it as it is a dense texture ( which not all creams do) so this is a massive bonus for me!
