How to Use The Product

I generally like to apply the cream after the use of cleanser and toner and before the application of a sunscreen in the morning. The gel-cream can be used both in the morning and night skincare routine. I use the cream at night time after I have cleansed and toned my face.

Pros of belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb:

  • The gel-cream is extremely hydrating and feels refreshing.
  • It blends into the skin instantly and is non-greasy.
  • The packaging is travel friendly.
  • Most of its ingredients are skin-friendly and natural.

Cons of belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb:

  • The product contains alcohol. This may be a concern for some skin types as it may not be suitable for them. But it works like wonders for my skin, which is a combination skin type.

Personal Opinion

I have been able to see some really good changes with this moisturizer. My skin feels softer and smoother after use. It is extremely lightweight, doesn’t feel sticky or clogs my pores, and its effects stay on for about 6-8 hours. For a combination skin type, I think it's a great product. If anyone is facing any dryness, they should definitely give this product a try. Would I recommend it? Yes, I definitely would with a rating of 5 out of 5.
