Ever since that crazy hoo-ha about a certain blogger having the most horrendous reaction to a facial, most of us have become a little more wary about accepting facial treatments, especioally those who have sensitive skin types. However, when I got this invite (I was checking my emails while waiting for the subway at Eujiro-1-ga station in Seoul – I know, typical Singaporean who have to be connected 24-7) – I immediately mooched onto someone’s Wifi and replied with a very affirmative YES I WANTZ I CAN HAZ A FACIAL PLEASEEEE. Well, not in those exact words, but you get my gist.
The plethora of skincare products that would be used on my face for the day’s facial – now most normal people would be worried about piling on too much stuff on the face for fear of breakout, but hey, not me. Why? #1: cos I am an insane beauty junkie, and #2: cos I know belif’s products and trust it them 100% – I have never had a breakout from using belif products before (in fact, I use them to recover from breakouts), so the more the merrier! Check out my list of reviewed Belif products here~
The rooms have a nice european-style to them, and the beds are comfy while the blankets are snuggle-worthy. My only issue is the floorboards. Since this is a vintage shophouse, the floorboards do creak under my hefty weight, and at times, I can actually peek through the gaps and see the floor beneath. Omg major acrophobe going bonkers here!
And here’s where the magic happens – even though there was no extraction, I still saw a significant increase in my skin’s radiance, especially at night (when I have that weird habit of peering into a mirror upclose to examine my skin).
Belif in Miracles Facial :
Step 1: Makeup Removal with belif Cleansing Gel Oil Enriched – this is very gentle and I didn’t feel my skin going all dry or stripped.
Step 2: Cleansing with the Creamy Cleansing Foam Moist (which I love, love, love – read my review here).
Step 3: Exfoliation with the Mild and Effective Facial Scrub. The grains are a good mix of coarse / fine, and are encased in a gel so that exfoliation is both effective and gentle.
Step 4: Toning with the Bergamot Herbal Extract Toner.
Step 5: Massage with The True Facial Oil. The scent isn’t super strong for this (vs other products) and is great for those who prefer a milder scent. It contains pomegranate oil, almond oil, calendula oil and borage oil. When combined with the massage, it was pretty soothing (and still gentle enough since I’d just done the whole wisdom tooth extraction sometime back). It also comes with a head and shoulder massage, but fret not – the therapist’s somewhat-oily hands won’t come into contact with your hair. It’s done through a towel so that you won’t have flat hair when you leave 😀
Step 6: Eye Mask with belif’s top-selling First Aid 360 Eye Care Mask (also reviewed here!). It’s usually a leave-on sleeping mask, but for the purpose of this facial, a thicker layer is applied (concurrently with the face mask in the next step), and then removed together later.
Step 7: Face mask with the Peat Miracle Revital Mask – the clay mask is great for clarifying as well as skin tightening.
Step 8: Once the masks (eye and face) are removed, the therapist will apply the Peat Miracle Revital Eye Cream which promotes collagen synthesis and increases skin elasticity.
Step 9: Here comes one of my mostest favouritesttesttest product – Peat Miracle Revital Serum Concentrate – this is what I always go to for skin recovery, especially when it’s dehydrated, unbalanced, recovering or suffering from a breakout. It works wonders for improving my skin health.
Step 10: The Hungarian Water Essence is then applied, which is said to increase your skin’s hydration levels by a whopping 20%. Woah.
Step 11: Pack and lock in all the goodness with the Peat Miracle Revital Cream which is great for anti-ageing and not overly rich.
And voila, in one session, I managed to try all 11 of their products! I found my skin more radiant on that very night as well as the next day. Plus, it’s been a week and I have absolutely no breakouts. – very happy- In fact, I’ve never had a bad reaction to any of belief’s products.
I’d say that this brand is particularly great for those who have sensitive skin – (as far as I know), their ingredients are very herbal and natural and are suitable for all skin types. Even my male cousin, a non-skincare type of person, has become a convert to belif products. For more information in Belif, check out their Facebook page or their website.
