Review: Belif Numero 10 Essence

I really feel sorry for the brand Belif – it’s got really good products, but due to its name being similar with b.liv (whose products caused a girl’s face to break out into Mordor landscape), it doesn’t seem to have as much popularity as it should. What’s more, Belif is a brand that prides itself on its products rather than marketing and star appeal, there are no celebrity ambassadors (and thus the lack of star factor). It is such a waste though – Belif really does have good products.

I say….

Now I seldom blog about a skincare product very promptly, because I need time to test and see its effects. I received this about 1-2 weeks ago, and the fact that I’m already blogging about it must mean something 😀

This is another first care serum / essence, something that you apply directly onto your freshly-cleansed face so that the maximum benefits can be absorbed. It’s something like Sulwhasoo’s First Care Activating Serum.

This is the marketing spiel: Moisture in the skin tends to be lost within 10 seconds after washing up.  This unique Essence locks in moisture in the skin by forming a moisture-protective layer upon application, before stepping out of the bathroom! Formulated with the extract of the Rose of Jericho, the moisture level in the skin is increased by 40% within 10 seconds, and the efficacy of the subsequent skincare products is also boosted through this Bathroom Essence.

What’s my spiel?

  • It is soooo easily absorbed.
  • It doesn’t leave a sticky residue.
  • More importantly, after just a couple of weeks of usage (on the left half of my face), I have actually noticed my skin getting brighter and clearer. Woah. -mindblown-
  • My skin also feels firmer, smoother and tighter, with pores perhaps 0.001% smaller.
  • The scent is also rather neutral – it doesn’t annoy me but it’s not an alluring scent either.
  • It comes in a pump-dispenser bottle, which dispenses an appropriate amount for half the face.
  • You can see the difference in my skin (click on the photo above).  woahhhh. me loves.

At $46, it’s a decent price for a good skincare starter product – I’m not a big fan of toners cos I find that it doesn’t do the skin as much good as a serum or essence would 😀

  6. Hello. After reading your reviews on belif products, i feel that I should also try this brand. I have to ask, do you still use serum on your skincare regimen when you use this? Thanks a lot ^^

    • Hi Cherie,
      Good choice! This is one of my favourite products from Belif – it’s also known as the bathroom essence (the theory behind this nickname is that you can use it while you’re still in the bathroom with damp face. The ingredients can be further activated with moisture, so you don’t have to fully dry your skin before using this).

      Yup, I use this as a starter serum or a booster (similar to Sulwhasoo’s First care serum), and follow with emulsion / serum / cream after (this is for day).

      For day, I use this alone, and then with the Sulwhasoo Luminature Essential Finisher (as a skincare / primer) and sunblock, and then start piling the makeup on. 🙂
