4 Belif Skincare Products For Oily Skin | Moisturiser, Cleansing Oil, Aqua Gel Oil & Tinted Moisturiser

Christmas is just too close! How are you prepping for the holidays? I feel like to take the vacation right now but maybe I’ll do a couple more post to conclude this year of 2017!
As you can tell from the title that this post is all about Belif Skincare. I’ve been eyeing on Belif Skincare for a while now. Their moisturizers are quite popular among skincare lovers. Finally, last month I’ve got my hand on 4 of the Belif Skincare products (thanks to Belif Malaysia).

The four belif skincare products I got are especially for oily to combination skin type. It’s been a nice journey so far experimenting with all 4 Belif Skincare Products. Love their minimalistic packaging and top-notch quality. I’m sorta impressed with their true claim.

Let’s talk about them one by one…

 

Belif Oil Control Moisturizer Fresh:

Belif Oil control moisturiser | Skincare For Oily Skin

Belif Oil control moisturizer has a thin gel consistency. Absorbs into the skin like magic. Skin feels silky smooth and well hydrated afterward. Controls oil secreting really well for hours. I love the fact that Makeup goes really well with it.

At first look, a lot of skin conditioning agent mentioned in this belif Oil Control Moisturiser really caught my eyes! Moreover, there is silica as well. If you’re reading regularly then you know how I feel about silica. I got skeptical. Though this moisturizer might be something like Milky Jelly Moisture Cream. Turns out, it is and it’s not as well.

Ingredient of Oil Control Moisturizer, Fresh:

Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dipropylene Glycol, Glycerin, Pentaerythrityl Tetraethylhexanoate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Sorbitol, Dimethicone, Triethylhexanoin, Rosa Caninafruit Extract, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Extract, Mentha Rotundifolia Leaf Extract, Alchemilla Vulgaris Leaf Extract+, Viola Tricolor Extract+, Spiraea Ulmaria Flower Extract+, Althaea Officinalis Root Extract+, Rosa Damascena Flower Extract+, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract*, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract*, Nepeta Cataria Extract*, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Leaf Extract*, Baptisia Tinctoria Root Extract*, Stellaria Media (Chickweed) Extract*, Silica, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Methyl Glucose Sesquistearate, Xanthan Gum, Tromethamine, Trisodium EDTA, Parfum/Fragrance**, Limonene.
* Napiers original formula – a herbal formula for clarification and hydration

+ Napiers Moisture formula – A herbal formula for oil moisture balance
** Fargrance of natural origin

Now there are a lot of herbal extract in it, which is good. But within my experience, I felt this moisturizer alone isn’t enough for my skin. Especially considering that I’m in my 30th now so face needs special care. I’ve been using belif moisturizer as a topper of my serums and all. Also, I had to put it in a rotation. There are some days when my combination skin needs some intense moisture.

Belif Oil Control Moisturizer Fresh is an excellent moisturizer without a doubt but for my younger sister who is in her 20s!

 

Belif Aqua Gel Oil:

This Aqua Gel Oil is a very interesting product. Something like this I came across for the first time. Initially, I got confused thinking what should I actually use it for! The product looks almost the same as the Oil Control moisturizer just with a light blue tint. But obviously, Aqua Gel oil and the moisturizer isn’t the same thing at all.

Ingredients of Aqua Gel Oil:

Water, Dimethicone, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Alcohol Denat, Trehalose, 1,2-Hexanediol, Betaine, Panthenol, Bis-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane, Polyglyceryl-10 Behenate/Eicosadioate, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Dimethicone/PEG-10/15 Crosspolymer, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Passiflora Incarnata Seed Oil, Sodium Hyaluronate, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract*, Nepeta Cataria Extract*, Baptisia Tinctoria Root Extract*, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract*, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Leaf Extract*, Stellaria Media (Chickweed) Extract**, Equisetum Arvense Leaf Extract**, Urtica Dioica (Nettle) Leaf Extract**, Plantago Lanceolata Leaf Extract**, Alchemilla Vulgaris Leaf Extract**, Rosa Damascena Flower Extract***, Althaea Officinalis Root Extract***, Spiraea Ulmaria Flower Extract***, Viola Tricolor Extract***, Melia Azadirachta Leaf Extract, Melia Azadirachta Flower Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Flower Extract, Solanum Melongena (Eggplant) Fruit Extract, Corallina Officinalis Extract, Ocimum Basilicum (Basil) Flower/Leaf Extract, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Extract, Lawsonia Inermis (Henna) Flower/Fruit/Leaf Extract, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Ocimum Sanctum Leaf Extract, Amino Esters-1, Coccinia Indica Fruit Extract, Tromethamine, Trisodium EDTA, Fragrance+, Citral, Citronellol, Limonene, Geraniol, Linalool.

Belif Skincare For Oily Skin | Oil Control Moisturiser and Aqua Gel Oil Swatch

Belif Aqua Gel Oil is an intense aqua based moisturizer which has oil in it to provide a double benefit at once. Don’t be afraid! This Aqua Gel Oil doesn’t even feel anything oily in touch. Yes, It’s magical the way it sounds haha.

This has become my favorite for pm skincare routine. As because it contains oil so I use it after all my pm skincare stuff. It leaves an emollient (or I should say glowy) finish upon application. More interestingly, even if I use a facial oil the before the Belif Aqua Gel Oil, It takes away oiliness from that oil as well. It creates a strong barrier and locks all the moisture inside. Each morning I get a fresh and nourished face.

Simply love this product!

Belif Cleansing Oil Fresh:

Belif Cleashing Oil | Skincare For Oily Skin

What is a good Oil Cleanser?
– That takes off all makeup and dirt with an ease but leaving no oily residue!

Belif Cleansing Oil Fresh own my heart without a second thought. The consistency of this cleansing oil is lighter than usual cleansing oil, probably because it is made for oily skin. Melts down makeup very easily. Emulsifies with water and when rinsing off leaves no oily residue. For waterproof makeup like mascara or so, you might need a second go.

Ingredients of Cleansing Oil, Fresh:

Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, PEG-20 Glyceryl Triisostearate, Triethylhexanoate, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Water, Tocopheryl Acetate, Saponaria Officials Leaf Extract, Acorus Calamus Root Extract, Sapindus Mukurossi Fruit Extract, Benincasa Cerifera Seed Extract, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract, Calendula Officials Flower Extract*, Nepeta Cataria Extract*, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Leaf Extract*, Baptisia Tinctoria Root Extract*, Stelaria Media (Chickweed) Extract*, Fragrance+, Citronellol, Limonene.
* Napiers original formula – a herbal formula for clarification and hydration

+ Fargrance of natural origin

Belif Cleashing Oil | Skincare For Oily Skin

The characteristic of it clearly reminds me of Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil. Considering the lightweight formula I think I love this one better. I love how it smells too. Something like ginger-ish, very mild but super refreshing.

There is an interesting claim that this cleansing oil helps to remove blackheads. I’m doubtful about that! Maybe I shouldn’t because I don’t have blackheads.

 

Belif Tinted Moisturizer, Powdery BB

Belif Tinted Moisturiser | Skincare For Oily Skin

There are 3 types of Belif tinted moisturizer available, Basic BB, Waterdrop BB and this one, Powdery BB. The Powdery BB gives more matte finish and oil control compared to other two types. This one is for oily skin after all!

Belif Tinted moisturizer consists SPF 43, PA+++. A little goes long ways and claims to give a medium (some kind of, as I read the packaging) coverage. There was an ingredient list attached to the packaging but in Korean or so which I was unable to read.

Belif Tinted Moisturiser Swatch | Skincare For Oily Skin

Belif Tinted Moisturizer Powdery BB has only one shade/tint with a neutral undertone. The shade blends into the skin to an extent but unfortunately, failed to match with my warm/tan skin. I love how comfortable it feels on the skin and healthy finish it gives. However, I can’t resist any white cast on my face or things that make me look whitish!

As because I loved the finish initially, I tried to mix coverFX custom drop in it to warm up the tone. It worked obviously! Then again I felt the tinted moisturizer was losing its characteristic because of coverFX. Mixed with CoverFX custom drops, the tinted moisturizer felt like a medium coverage BB cream (e.g. Nars Skin Tint). Whereas the Belif tinted moisturizer alone was giving a nice clear and dewy (except the white cast) veil.

I stopped using it after a few try. However, I’m sure those with medium to fairer skin gonna love this tinted moisturizer.

In a nutshell,

I’ve nothing much to complain about these 4 Belif Skincare Products. They are indeed perfected for oily to combination skin type. I’ve to appreciate the belif Aqua Gel Oil. Apparently, I love it more than the Belif Oil Control Moisturizer. Belif Cleansing oil is simply a sweetheart. Except I really wish the tinted moisturized matched my skin so I could use it. After using them four I’m more interested to try out their anti-aging skincare range.
