BELIF True Cream: Aqua Bomb and Moisturizing Bomb | Skincare Review

belif Aqua Bomb


When Korean beauty brands started becoming more mainstream in Canada, I became both excited, and a little skeptical. One of the first to hit the shelves at Sephora was Laneige. Although I like their lip sleeping mask and creamy serum, I don't love their product selection overall. It doesn't do much for me and has a lot of fragrance. So when belif started becoming more talked about, I knew I had to get in on the Moisture Bomb crazeAvon is also selling these three products I am featuring today, which is great! they often run more sales than Sephora. Read on to see my thoughts.

belif Aqua Bomb Jelly Cleanser $34

Cleanse with a burst of hydration! This jelly-to-foam cleanser creates the same explosive burst of hydration as belif's cult favorite The True Cream Aqua Bomb. Formulated with amino acids and glycerin-based cleansing agents, it gently removes makeup and impurities without stripping skin of moisture. Great for all skin types.
I classify this as a standard gel cleanser that works well as a second cleanse at night, or in the morning if you need a thorough wash. Much to my surprise, I found it to leave my combination skin feeling a bit stripped! Contrary to its claims, any foam cleanser can run the risk of irritating naturally dry or combo skin. Overall this would be suitable for those who have oily skin. For me, I'm sticking to FROOSH go deep, Cerave hydrating cleanser and Benzagel cleanser.

belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb $50

Dive into hydration with the belif Aqua Bomb, formulated with a soothing blue gel cream that provides instant moisture while making your skin look healthy and even. Lightweight and refreshing, this cream is ideal for both oily and combination skin along with normal skin.
Aqua bomb definitely feels like a glass of water for the skin. This oil-free formula has a natural citrus scent, so steer clear if smells bother you. It feels like a more refined version of Neutrogena's hydro boost, claiming to plump and refine pores. It's going to stand second to my beloved Clinique Moisture Surge and also considering the $50 price, I'll stick with the fragrance-free formula of Clinique.

belif The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb $50

Belif Moisturizing bomb will smooth and nourish your skin, keeping it hydrated for 26 hours. Indulge in this comforting cream blend, featuring apothecary herbs like oat husk and plantin.
 This is one of those moisturizers that will absolutely leave your skin feeling supersaturated in the morning. I actually believe the 26hr claim, but haven't tested it myself. I should whack a layer onto Joe's skin before his next call shift though, because that would be a true 26hr test! Regardless of the claims, I think the True Cream is a must-have for all skin types. Similar to Clinique's Moisture Surge Intense, this is going to be like a warm cozy duvet to apply after a thorough cleanse, before bed. If your skin is more on the dry side, you could also opt for this in the morning. Love the whipped texture, I just wish it came in a tube format so there's less of the contamination factor.
