As you may have already realized, one of my biggest interests/hobbies revolves around COSMETICS. I love trying new products; researching and learning about brands; and of course, telling you all about my experiences!
For some time now, I have been looking into the brand HelloBody, and researching their products, ingredients, etc. As the products checked off my *satisfaction boxes* I decided I would give it a shot and try them out.
So here we are today, and I have quite the collection of Hello Body products to rave to you about!
First, let me tell you a bit about the brand. Hello Body is a Germany based company, which distributes its products to *almost all* countries globally. The brand uses 12 different country websites, so when searching for your products, make sure you are on the countries website which is closest to you.
Now, to tell you more about the products in general, I want to use quotes directly from the company’s website, as I think the explanations are so clear to understand and appreciate:
|SAFETY||All of our products are dermatologically tested by an independent German institute, the Dermatest Institute,and all received an “excellent” rating.|
|INGREDIENTS||The Earth’s ecosystem can be described as a complex organism in which different cycles intertwine to form a stable system. In order to maintain this stability, people, including ourselves, have to integrate responsibly as a company. This is why the mindful and responsible treatment of people, animals and the environment serves as the basis for all our decisions.|
The best natural ingredients are the signature of products. Our goal is to reach 100% ingredients of natural origin in our products. Right now, the average percentage of natural ingredients in our formulas is 98%. The other 2% are ingredients to help preserve our products and help them smell great!
|STANDARS||All of our products are made in Germany and we follow the E.U.’s industry standards, which tend to be more strict than many U.S. standards.|
|PACKAGING||Just like the well-being of our customers, the well-being of our planet is very important to us – especially because we depend on its natural resources. For this very reason we want to treat it with respect and give something back. This is why we actively try to find ways to conserve the Earth’s natural resources in the planning and development of our products. This is why it is so important to us that our product packaging becomes more sustainable over time. And we are constantly working to put our plans into action and become increasingly sustainable.|
However, any new packaging options first have to be tested for their compatibility. We have to make sure that our products are well protected and do not react negatively to the alternative packaging – these tests are very complex and time-consuming.
So, I think you now know what drew me in to this brand, and why I decided to pick out a few products. now have a few items from each of the brands lines (Coco, Aloe, Cara, and Rose) but want to tell you about each of the lines individually, as they each serve different purposes. So this post will be dedicated to…Rose.
THE ROSE COLLECTION
I decided to start with the Rose collection (mainly because of the time of year). First, let me tell you about the wonderful scent of these products! Imagine a delicate freshly picked Rose, combined with a freshly squeezed lemon that’s been softly distilled with water so it’s only fresh and not sour. THAT is the scent of this line! It’s absolutely delicious, and I honestly say to my myself “I feel like I’m at the spa” every time I use it. Which has been every single day and night for the last month!
The Rose collection has been created specifically for combination skin, as it focuses mainly on purifying and balancing the skin.
The four products in this collection are:
Rose Effect – Daily Face Scrub Cleanser
Rose Breeze – Daily Toning Face Spray
Rose Divine – Daily Face Clearing Serum
Rose Velvet – Balancing Day and Night Face Fluid
This product comes in a tube of 102 grams and is formulated with french pink clay, gentle exfoliating particles, and mild cleansing ingredients. The scent as mentioned above, is heavenly. The first few times I used this cleanser, I had a slightly hot sensation on my skin – I quickly learned that this is the effect of the scrub; cleaning my skin of the days events.
After washing off the cleanser, and patting my face dry, I could not believe how soft and delicate my skin was (and this was just after the first use). By day 3 I was hooked (and still am), as having that light and fresh skin feeling, especially during these times of the pandemic, summer heat, etc, it is one of the best feelings in the world to me. TIP: A little bit goes a long way with this product, so don’t worry if the grams don’t seem like a lot of product. It’s totally worth it.
This toning spray is perfect for a mist of hydration after cleansing. Fresh scent included. Personally, I am not a fan of spraying product directly on my face – I prefer to have control over where it lands. So, I use a cotton pad, which I spray the product onto, and then I wipe all over my face, skipping the eyes and mouth. The products states to use this twice a day, but I’ve only been using it once a day, as part of my nighttime routine, and it has worked well!
In quoting the HelloBody website directly, the glamour effects of this product as: “Rose water (Morocco) and pink gallica flower extract (France): toning, refreshing and soothing properties. Organic liquorice root extract: soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. Alpha-glucan oligosaccharide (prebiotic complex): protects and strengthens the skin’s barrier and stimulates its natural defence mechanisms – for a more even complexion.”
Overall, I think this is a very good product, it has a great scent, and leaves your akin feeling fresh, clean, and hydrated. I don’t have too much comparison with toners, but if I had to compare it Clinique, I think I’d pick this one.
Ah the serum game. To be totally honest, I just started using a serum last summer. Mainly because my skin needed a major pick-me-up from the summer heat, and I was looking for something that would work its magic throughout the night.
This HelloBody new Rose Divine serum is very delicate and lightweight when applied. When I put it on, after using the toner, I have to wait a few minutes for it to really sink in. The instructions do say to wait about 10 minutes before applying other products, but I think maybe it’s my complexion as well. I think I would prefer if it “soaked in” a bit faster, but this does give me time to do other things while I wait. Agin, this product has a DIVINE scent, like all others in the collection.
To quote the HelloBody website, this product contains “Glycolic and natural salicylic acid [which] combat impurities and excessive sebum production”. Seeing “ACID” in products might be a bit frightening, but there are good and bad acids – these two are safe. Of course, you can stay away from all of these types of products if you prefer. Personally, I don’t mind a bit of “healthy acid” to build up my skin a bit. I am almost thirty (shhh!).
Well, this product is my favourite from this collection, but I could be biased because I just LOVE moisturizers, creams, and lotions! This “facial fluid” can be used both day and night, and its general idea is to achieve soft, even, and VELVET skin. I have been using this product every night, so once a day, and I have already noticed my skin to be a bit softer and more even – especially my cheeks.
A great product quote from the website, which I found to pull my interest into the product more: “Formulated with a symbiotic pre- and probiotic that supports healthy skin flora and improves the appearance of combination skin”. Skin flora and combination skin in one sentance always catches my attention.
Overall, I only have good things to say about this product, all around 5 stars,
Yes, pricing is an important factor to consider. So, GOOD NEWS! These HelloBody products have really good price points, and the company often offers discounts on their products as well.

So far, so good with these products and this brand. I am glad that I decided to try out these products, even if it did take me a while to decide.
