Being in my early 20s, I am sad to say that I have a skin age of 28 due to improper sun care during days when I do outdoor sports like Netball and Track & Field. Ever since I started blogging, I’ve been more diligent in my skincare routine so as to improve my skin concerns. With this anti-aging duo, my skin has appeared more radiant and healthy!
Dry skin ladies, the powerful moisture duo is here to save your day! It’s never too late to jump on the BB Cushion bandwagon and I am so stoked that Belif actually came up with a cushion product too! I’ve always loved the Almighty Sun Powder and when this was sent to me, I couldn’t wait to try it!
The moisture duo consists of none other than the NEW Moisture Bomb Cushion and the iconic True Cream-Aqua Bomb moisturiser! Can you spot them in the photo?
(P.S. My pup, Sake, refuses to leave the photo)
The first product I am going to talk about is the latest release from Belif, the Moisture Bomb Cushion which contains the most important property of the moisturising bomb cream, essentially deep hydration. It contains SPF50+/PA+++, an adequate amount of sun protection you can get in your base product.
Brands are increasingly upping their game with sun protection care with the environment turning into nothing but a warm sauna! I must say the heat in Singapore has been awfully crazy, especially during midday, hence, ample sun care is important to beat the torridity!
Belif, a true herbal cosmetic brand, has launched its Sun Protection Range, including body care products dedicated for shielding you from the harmful UV rays and to keep you feeling fresh and rejuvenated amidst the warm weather!
April to me has a rather significant meaning. It was the month of transition for me, from a graduate to a full-time working adult. It feels surreal that I have now entered the workforce, joining every adult in their morning rush and their 9-5 (technically 9-6) schedule. As such, I haven’t had much time to play with all my new toys (makeup) sitting on the vanity shelf. It has just been grabbing a few new products and sticking to them for a good week or two.
Thus, April’s Beauty Favourites is all about convenient and basic needs, comprising of a few makeup and skincare essentials.
Aloha! It’s Sunday which means time to recharge before the work week! My April Bellabox arrived a few days ago and I’m excited to share with you a brand new box of travel-sized products!
Earlier last month, in celebration of International Women’s Day, the sweet team from Belif sent a lovely care package consisting of some of their star products! I had the opportunity to try the Peat Miracle Revital Serum Concentrate and the True Anti-Aging Essence out, both of which are for anti-aging.
My favourite of the 2 has got to be the Peat Miracle Revital Serum Concentrate. It is a clear, viscous fluid that penetrates very quickly into the skin, leaving no greasy residue at all. It contains 20% Peat extract, a type of herb found in Peatlands, and is an old secret formula that ancient Egyptians and Romans used for skin protection. It has this light herbal scent that I find really calming as well.
Besides revitalising the skin and increasing the skin’s turnover rate, the serum also helps in combating signs of aging, skin dullness and elasticity. Since it absorbs very rapidly and is lightweight, it is, in my opinion, suitable for even oily skin types. The product comes with a dropper for you to dispense the serum and all you have to do is to apply 1-2 drops (more than enough) after your toner and pat gently to aid in absorption. It is a little sticky at first, be patient, because it’ll go away once all the serum gets absorbed.
I find that upon applying this, my skin feels instantly hydrated, firmer and is visibly bouncier as well! After using for about a week or so, you’ll be able to see that skin clarity has improved and pores have also tightened. I was a little surprised to know that it’s being priced at S$85, but I guess since this bottle contains so much goodness for the skin and is free of mineral oils, synthetic fragrances/colours/preservatives and animal-derived ingredients, it’s worth every penny you spend!
Following which, I apply the True Anti-Aging Essence, which is a two-layered shaking essence containing a Calendula moisturising whipping cream layer and the clearer Acai Berry essence layer. The first thing I noticed about this essence is the scent! It smells a lot like lemon cream biscuits, those from the huge metal biscuit tins that you see in the local supermarkets.
3 Napiers* formulas:

Calendula is known for its moisturising and soothing effects while Acai Berry is famous for its super anti-oxidant properties to prevent skin aging. With 2 layers in the essence, you have to shake and mix the contents in the bottle before dispensing and applying on your skin. Like the serum, this is quick in being absorbed as well and gives the skin instant hydration. A week of usage will make your skin really soft and supple.
I used to think anti-aging starts when we’re in our 30s but I was so wrong! In fact, you can start as early as 20 because 10 years down the road, your skin will be so thankful.
Create yourself and be gorgeous! ♡
