[A tiny Belif haul]
Last Wednesday, I finally gave in and got myself some Belif products at the newly opened/launched store located at Wisma. I got 2 item, Belif The true cream - aqua bomb and Belif First aid Aqua rush mask.
The store layout and concept were pretty simple and neat... nothing fancy or girly. No pics la (lolx...) I'm not that daring to dig out my iphone to snap around the store! -_-"
But I did found one from their Korean Website - www.belifcosmetic.com
Belif First aid Aqua rush mask
Price: SD$38 for 50ML
This is a wash off mask - apply a thin layer on the whole face and let it sit for 10 to 15mins and rinse it off with warm water.
I tried this twice and it feel so nice and soothing - it does have abit of tingling feel on the skin between my upper lips and nose (because this is the drier areas on my whole face!).
Just 10 mins... my skin feel really soft and supple the flaky and rough texture on my cheek reduce abit ... to maintain the moisturizing feel, still need to seal it in with moisturizer. My skin does feel abit tight after afew mins from rinsing off.
I agree that this is an SOS for dehyrated dry skin!

Belif The true cream - aqua bomb

They have 2 type of moisturizers (I tried both samples and I like it... and I was torn between both but .... I end up with Aqua bomb cos of the protective layer)
Aqua bomb >> Can feel instant hydrating, soothing and cooling sensation when applying the moisturizing, oil free, took awhile for the gel to absorb, but once absorb, skin feel supple, smooth and not oily/sticky. Does have a protective layer that wrap around the skin surface. Keep skin moisturized for the whole night.
Moisturing Bomb >> (I have 3 of this sample packs) which last me about 7 days. It feel like a light cream moisturizer, does feel abit oily, but once absorbed, skin feel so smooth and soft (much softer as compare to aqua bomb)... keep skin moisturized the whole night. But I do not feel anything when I wash my face the next day. [Maybe I didn't apply much?]
I like the soothing, cooling and protective layer of the Aqua bomb.
As for Moisturizing bomb, I love the intense moisturizing factor and how soft my skin feel.
I choose to get aqua bomb first, because I want the protective layer to wrap around my skin, cos I'm trying to heal my dry painful flaky skin ASAP - so Aqua Bomb feel like the best option.
Oh ya, both moisturizers and the aqua rush wash off mask have similar scent, not too strong or overpowering.. refreshing, very citrus-y (lime) and abit sweet! (I like the scent, so no complain)
They also gave me a sample kit (consist of 5 samples targetting on your needs - I opt for dry skin)
I got some samples from them while walking along the road outside Takashimaya. At that time, my skin was so dry, tight and abit painful... and I'm willing to try any moisturizing products.
The moisturizers that I have were not enough - I was rotating Murad(for dry skin) and ROC (for combination skin) hydrating products (both were really hydrating on my "normal" skin condition, but this time both doesn't seem to work on my painfully dry skin -_-)
I was suffering dehydration from sleeping in AC room(???) lack of water in my system(???) and it got worse after I came back from KL, Malaysia (I was there for an event, will blog about it soon!)
When I first tried on the aqua bomb, my skin feel so soothing and moisturizing that last till next day. When I touch my skin, it feel nice, not oily nor sticky, but when water touches my skin(when I wash my face la), I can feel a layer of slimy texture, kinda like a mask protecting my skin!
You know, when skin have wound (especially on dry and flaky) when I applying moisturizer skin will feel abit pain pain from the burning/ tingling sensation.(Similar feeling when putting water on wound - that kind of mild burning pain feeling... aiya, I donno how to explain la... it like 刺刺 lor) But I got no such feeling when I use either Aqua bomb or Moisturizing bomb!
Well, that all ^_^
