belif @ Welcome to belif Moisture World!

Who doesn't love Korean skin cares?
I'm a big fans of the products from Korea because I find they suit to my skin the most, also most of them are very affordable and effective to deliver healthy and beautiful skin.
I have been using Korean skin care products for at least 5 years from now.
When I traveled to Korea, there are many skin care products everywhere with many different brands; sometimes it can make me feel confuse which to buy and which to use.
I have used a lot of Korean skin care and cosmetic products during these years, of course some brands make me happy, while some may not.
And, belif is one of the skin care brand that makes me feel satisfied without failed.
Their products have been kept under my skin care solution for at least 1.5 to 2 years.



If it is your first time meeting belif, here's a little bit of intro about this brand.
Belif is the most truthful and skin care cosmetic brand that you have ever come across because it applies the knowledge and traditional method passed down from a British herbalist since 1860.
All the products are completed with traditional approach with superb natural herbs ingredients to treat the body and mind in a safe way and also efficacy for the skin.
The name itself, belif presents a level honesty unrivaled by any brand with it's inimitable tradition and reliable science to deliver true value to customers.



In this post, I will be reviewing 4 types of belif product that are suitable for oily/combination skin, which includes:
#1 Cleansing Oil Fresh
#2 Aqua Gel Oil
#3 Oil Control Moisturizer Fresh
#4 Tinted Moisturizer Powdery B.B



# belif Cleansing Oil Fresh @ RM140 (150ml)
The cleansing oil is suitable for dry or combination skin types.
It helps not only melt your make up, but also eliminates blackheads on your face.



Ingredients of the Cleansing Oil Fresh contains Soapberry and Sweet Flag, which both of them are able to help to keep skin clean and also prevent future breakouts.
Also, it is packed with oil and herbs which helps to remove excess oil, dirt, impurities and heavy makeup.


The packaging comes in 2 pieces; the plastic bottle with screw on cap, and a sturdy plastic pump with a clip-on lock mechanism.
It's travel friendly as you can lock the cleansing oil with the clip on lock mechanism to avoid any split out before putting the bottle into your travel bags. 



The cleansing oil is in oil-textured facial cleanser that refreshes and clears skin without stripping moisture.
I can smell a kind of olive oil scent, but the smell is not strong at all. 


How to use?
Step #1: Pump one or two drops in your palm
Step #2: Gently massage onto dry face to wipe away make up
Step #3: Concentrate on blackhead areas with special care
Step #4: Rinse off with lukewarm water





My thoughts
Testing it on my hand with the water proof eyeliner and lipsticks that I use everyday.
Just one wipe with face cotton, 95% of the residue were removed out from my skin.
Then, I tried it on my daily eye makeup, it's so easy and gentle to wash them off.
It's best to start with dry hands and dry face to make sure the oils clean the dirt from the pores of the skin.
I have been using it for 2 weeks, and this has immediately become one of my favourite cleanser in my list now as not only the gentle and light texture that helps to break down my daily makeup, it also helps to make my skin feel cleaner without irritating my skin at all. 


#2 belif Aqua Gel Oil @ RM205 (50ml)
Aqua gel oil is to help to boost your moisture level on your skin.
This refreshing gel oil is a moisture concentrated that turns into a light moisture oil, delivering soft and moist hydration to your skin.
It provides long lasting hydration and maintain your skin moisture without giving your skin additional burdens too.



Ingredients of Belif Aqua Gel Oil includes:
Passiflora See Oil which has high amounts of essential fatty acids that can keep the skin properly hydrated.
Oat Kernel Extrac that can be treated a wide array of different skin disorders such as dryness, acne, and itchy skin.
Raspberry Leaf Extract, a leaf that frequently used for soothing and healing irritated or dry skin.



The gel texture is very lightweight that absorbs into the skin very well.
And, it smells exactly like it's blue liquid too, something like the fresh aquatic scent.




How to use?
Step #1: After toner, gently apply 2 to 3 pumps on your face
Step #2: For natural makeup, free from rough skin surface and dead skin cells, apply a small amount as the last step in skin care to balance it before makeup



My thoughts
I used it twice in a day, one application in the day time and one application in the evening before the moisturizer.
I feel very refreshing upon the application without any doubt.
The product said it provides hydration deep into the skin, and so your skin will be less oily as you have enough moisture in your skin.
For the first few times I used, I can see my face is less oily after my makeup, probably because the product has "eaten" my excessive oil by providing enough hydration to my skin? :)
Well, that non-greasiness and refreshing texture really makes my skin so happy!



#3 belif Oil Control Moisturizer Fresh @ RM160 (125ml)
It's a mineral oil-free moisturizer without oil which also helps to tighten widened pores created by excessive sebum.
This oil-free moisturizer is good for those with oily skin, but would like to have a light finishing without excess shine, and at the same time keeping the skin moisturized.

Oil Control Moisturizer Fresh is formulated with ingredients of rosehip extracts rich in vitamins and tannins along with oil controlling powder, which both help to tighten pores enlarged due to excess sebum and improves suppleness, leaving skin clean and smooth.

Packing wise for the oil control moisturizer fresh is very simple and clean.
It comes in a opaque white plastic bottle and a black colour pump dispenser opening.
This type of packaging provides a better hygiene purpose, and the additional small cling that use to attach to the mouth of the pump dispenser is good for you to carry this product without any leakage problem. 



The texture is in gel based, not greasy at all but indeed it is in a very light weight and fresh feeling.
It is in translucent white colour, and without any strong smell at all.
For me, it smells more like a fresh pure water which works totally good with me.


How to use?
Step #1: Apply it after toner and essence
Step #2: Pump 2 to 3 times on your palm
Step #3: Apply evenly over your face and neck



My thoughts
I'm feeling so refresh! That's my first expression once I have the oil control moisturizer fresh on my skin.
I can easily spread the liquid on my skin without any residue left over.
When I applied it on my skin during day time, I can see the moisture not only helps to hydrated my skin all day long but also keep my makeup last longer.
For hydration purpose, I think it has achieved what it has promised, my face is very hydrated and moisturized after the application.


#4 belif Tinted Moisturizer Powdery B.B @ RM99 (30ml)
This is a BB cream which provides you a clear, translucent, and natural skin tone.
It comes with UV protection function that up to SPF43/PA+++ to block strong UV rays during outdoor activities and at the same time it also leaves a matt feeling after pat the product into your skin.
The BB cream only comes with one shade which is in light nude colour for your choice.


The tinted moisturizer powdery B.B contains Canna from the Caribbean, which has a natural ability to control excess sebum.
Also, the cream helps to leave the skin smooth and refreshed all day long.


The BB cream comes in a squeeze tube, which are best for storage and also for usage.
The packaging is so handy to carry around with you for any touch-ups when you need it because it's small and not heavy at all.


Pretty like the texture because it is very smooth and light, and also it's very easy to apply and spread over with just my hands.
Oh btw, the smell is quite pleasant which smells like a a true cream. :)


How to use?
Step #1: Use it as the last step after all the essential skin care
Step #2: Dispense a small amount (I usually use about 10 cents amount)
Step #3: Gently apply to the skin and slightly pat for absorption


My thoughts
Here's my before and after photo with the BB cream.
You can see my skin tone on the left is brighter and the overall complexion is much even compare to the right side.
Another reason that I like about this BB cream is it provides a very natural complexion without looking very cakey or like having a heavy make up on me.
Well, heavy make up is always not my type!


In addition, I'm also very convincing about it's great light coverage job.
I actually have a small scar left under my left eye area due to the previous tear dust surgery that I did in last year.
If you looked into the picture on the right, you can see the scar is concealed by the BB cream, whereby can temporarily hide the scar mark on my face. :)
