Korean beauty has been a huge trend the last several years. Even my own current skincare routine is inspired by their crazy 11-step routine, with mostly of Korean products. In honour of my trip to Korea this month, I thought I would review another K-beauty cult product I had brought back with me earlier this year.
Price: $38 – 50ml at Sephora
belif was one of first K-beauty brands introduced to Sephora. A limited selection of the products was released and the Aqua Bomb was one the best sellers. This product is a gel type cream formulated with Lady’s Mantle that product description claims is known as “a women’s hydrating herb.” It does have a variety of uses, including having astringent properties, but hydration was not one I was able to find when looking it up.
My combination skin absolutely loves how hydrating yet lightweight this moisturiser is. The gel-cream texture/formula quickly absorbs into the skin, while also providing a slight cooling effect. It also smooths my skin slightly and acts as a wonderful base for makeup.
I apply this as one of the last steps in my skincare routine in the morning. Taking a small spatula full of the product I dot it onto my face and lightly pat into my skin. I’ve been using it now for about a month and have barely made a dent! A little goes a long way with this product (mine is an extra-large 100 ml tub.)
Aqua bomb has been great for my skin and would highly recommend it for people with oily or combination skin and looking for a lightweight moisturiser.
