Are you dry? Like dehydrated dry? Most winters I am like the SAHARA so I was really excited when I first tried Belif Skincare a few months back. I had been hearing all about korean skincare for years and never got to try anything except for the things I found at H-Mart. This whole line is like a HUGE drink of water for your skin without sacrificing any of the feel good or anti-aging benefits you know and love from most products you find on the market today. Belif is one of the Korean skincare brands that are hitting the US this year. This is all about apothecary meets Korean skincare science as well and no parabens, sulfates or phthalates are used in any of the formulations. They are all about healthy looking, hydrated, dewy looking skin. This isn’t just reserved for us dry skin folks either, if you are oilier, they have something for you too. I tried a bunch of the line and will break down my favorites..
Creamy Cleansing Foam Moist [$26] I love this cleanser! It cleanses effectively without stripping my skin, it just feels clean and not dried out. It is rich in vitamin C for brightening, wormwood to prevent breakouts, soapberry to detoxify, and sweet flag to cleanse and soften.
Bergamot Herbal Extract Toner [$28]This is the craziest toner I have ever seen! It’s meant to balance your skin and has sage and bergamot extracts. It’s an opaque gel liquid consistency and when it was warmer outside, I almost didn’t need a moisturizer afterwards! The directions say to use a cotton pad – but I just put a little in the palm of my hands and smooth it over my face and neck.
The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb [$38] This cream is a cushiony “bomb” of moisture for your face. It has been clinically tested to provide up to 26 hours of moisture (that’s my kinda moisturizer!!) it leaves skin soft with no sticky feel whatsoever. This formula contains a blend of apothecary herbs, including comfrey leaf, a powerful hydrating agent – it is PERFECT for normal to drier skin types. If you are on the oilier side or just prefer a lightweight moisturizer you will love Aqua Bomb.
Hungarian Water Essence [$42] This hydrating serum is the perfect accompaniment to the other products in the line. It’s all about fresh, hydtared skin and this serum delivers a huge dose of that without feeling sticky or oily. The texture is super light and watery as well.
Overall thoughts, I feel like this would be a great line to have around during the summer for those long days at the beach/pool. I also like the fact that you can use it in the winter when you REALLY need that extra boost as well. Most attractive trait is the price tag with the average cost running about $45 per piece. You could get the whole regimen for under $100!
