Belif | Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask: Review
Staying at home means more time for self-care. Therefore, I've been using lots of masks, including one from Belif called the Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask (C$45 for 75 ml). With a jelly pudding texture packed with replenishing herbal extracts, this sleeping mask "revives dull, dry skin with explosive hydration for a dewy, radiant glow". I've got a detailed look at this product to share with you today. To read on, click......

Belif | Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask
Housed in a frosted blue plastic jar, the Belif Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask is formulated with Napier's Aqua Formula, a proprietary combination of herbal extracts of chickweed, lady's mantle, horsetail, and nettle. This combination moisturizes and soothes the skin, working together with a handful of other anti-inflammatory and antioxidant extracts, from plants such as Scottish heather, oat, calendula, and raspberry. The water-based formulation contains polymer (EG-240/HDI Copolymer Bis-Decyltetradecet-20 Ether) and silicone (Polymethylsilsesquioxane), which give the sleeping mask a jello-like texture that spreads easily on the skin. As I've expressed many times before, I'm not a fan of silicone in skincare, as they tend to pill and feel heavy on the skin. However, as sleeping masks are usually applied on bare skin or over a toner, this is not a big issue here. I personally would do without the silicone but it's not a dealbreaker.

The Belif Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask has a very subtle citrus herbal scent. The formulation absorbs quickly and leaves behind a non-sticky, breathable film on the skin. The mask feels instantly soothing and it indeed keeps the skin supple and hydrated throughout the night. For those with oily, combination, or normal skin, the sleeping mask provides just the right amount of moisturization but if you have dry or aging skin, the formulation is probably not nourishing enough as the ingredients don't include many oils. Overall, this is a lightweight sleeping mask that I would recommend to those with oily to normal skin looking for a boost of nighttime hydration.
