Major Love


believe in truth


It’s the dead of winter here in Toronto and all I can say is bring on the hydration!

First of all THIS!

What it is:
A brightening mask that can be left on overnight to reveal radiant skin by morning.

It’s formulated with black truffle extract, one of the world’s finest delicacies, and visible capsules of amber, pearl, and gold powder to awaken instant and visible luminosity.

Can You see what I am talking about here!

Bright, Natural light is very difficult to harness these days but can you see the tiny particles!

My Thoughts.

I have tried this amazing mask 4 times so far and I really did not want to wash my face when I woke up!

Amazingly lightweight for an overnight mask and very comfortable on the skin.

The only other mask I can compare it to in its efficacy is Shiseido’s Ibuki Sleeping Mask .

Very different textures and formulations. In all honesty I prefer Belif’s overnight mask because of the luminous Glow I wake up to. It has a beautiful natural scent that has a hint of citrus.


Next Up  – Hungarian Water Essence Larger view

What it is formulated to do:
Hungarian Water Essence recharges skin’s lost hydration back in an instant. This formula contains a blend of apothecary herbs, including rosemary and lavender—powerful hydrating and antioxidant agents. This ultra-light watery texture instantly glides onto skin to provide a burst of powerful moisture that penetrates skin for a long-lasting hydration, leaving the skin healthy-looking, soft, and supple.


What it is formulated WITHOUT:


What else you need to know:
This dermatologist tested product is free of mineral oil, petrolatum, synthetic preservatives, dyes, and fragrances, and animal origin ingredients.

Rosemary: Detoxifies skin, leaving it smooth, soft, and clear.

My Thoughts

I was going to show you a pump of this to show you the clarity but I am Not wasting any!

It sinks right into the skin and I have a feeling I am going to be finished with this bottle soon.

I apply it before the True Cream and Aqua bomb it just feels like my skin is ready for anything.

There is almost no scent and my rating …


Honestly I do not want to run out! I have not had enough time with this product!

Oh the struggle …. ha !

Now onto the last 2 products !

2 Cleansers


Mild and Effective Facial Scrub


This is the only product I have not spent enough time with to formulate a full opinion ….

More to come on this ..

belif mild and effective facial scrub - .jpg

What it is:
A natural two-in-one facial scrub that gently yet effectively cleanses and exfoliates skin.


What it is formulated to do:
This formula is a unique blend of time-tested apothecary herbs including lemon balm, a soothing and detoxifying agent. It features gentle yet powerful dual-scrub actions: exfoliating scrub to remove skin’s dead cells and cleansing scrub to deeply cleanse pores. More than a simple cleanser, it prevents breakouts and smooths skin for a clear, healthy-looking complexion.


What it is formulated WITHOUT:


What else you need to know:
This dermatologist tested product is free of mineral oil, petrolatum, synthetic dyes and fragrances, preservatives, and animal origin ingredients.

My Thoughts so far.

This is gentle enough for very sensitive skin. I have used it 3 times and it left my face feeling clean and any kind of dry patch was gone after use.

It’s a clear gel and the only thing I can compare it to in its gentle exfoliation properties is Farmacy Beauty’s New Day Day Exfoliating Grains.

I believe exfoliation should always be gentle! I am not a skin expert in any way but my skin reacts terribly to visible particles. I would only trust such a process to a great spa.


And lastly

Creamy Cleansing Foam Moist 

Larger view

What it is:
A vitamin-C packed creamy foam cleanser with natural herbs that gently yet effectively remove makeup and impurities while hydrating the skin.


What it is formulated to do:
This luxurious cleanser is a unique blend of time-tested apothecary herbs that are rich in vitamin C: wormwood to prevent breakouts, soapberry to detoxify, and sweet flag to cleanse and soften. These botanical ingredients are effective, natural, gentle, and non-stripping cleansing agents. Ideal for normal to dry skin, the creamy lather immediately removes impurities while respecting skin’s natural moisture barrier.


What it is formulated WITHOUT:


What else you need to know:
This dermatologist tested product is free of mineral oil, SLS, synthetic preservatives, dyes, and fragrances, and animal origin ingredients.

– Soapberry: Detoxifies and cleanses skin, leaving it smooth, soft, and clear.

– Sweet flag: Cleanses, soothes, and helps remove impurities.

My Thoughts so Far

Such amazing ingredients. I am amazed in all this research and am becoming a total beauty nerd.

It’s creamy and a bit pearly. This is extremely mild and foams up beautifully. You only need a pea sized amount which I love.

In Conjunction with The Mild Effective Facial Scrub- these 2 do not strip or dry my skin. They leave it ready for toning and Moisture.


Belif Skincare is the first in Korean Beauty that I have seriously fallen for in every way.

From packaging to ingredients I will definitely be perusing The Face Shop & Sephora for more fascinating finds.

As always thanks for reading!

(becomingmoreskincareobsessed) with every day that goes by!

I need to write about my new skincare routine as It has changed so much since I last wrote about it in Summer!

I will do this very soon.

As always thanks for reading!

    I am so impressed with belif so far! Their creams are amazing and I repurchased the Aqua Bomb right away. I’ve been curious if the other products are just as good, but judging by your reviews, it sounds like they are!
