Believe in Truth? Belif Hungarian Water Essence Review

No, I didn’t come up with that tagline, but  I believe Belif, a Korean skincare label did :)

Here’s a 10ml sample sized Belif Hungarian Water Essence that came together with an issue of Cosmopolitan magazine a few months back.

Do you believe belif?

Belif’s website doesn’t list the ingredients, but does share the following blurb:

 Product Description

This essence contains hydration secrets of the legendary Hungarian Water that enabled Hungarian Queen Elizabeth to maintain her beauty into old age. This product is applied cool like a spritz of water, and clings to the skin lightly without stickiness, prolonging suppleness and softness.

 No addition of
Mineral oil, Synthetic fragrance, Synthetic dyes, Synthetic preservatives, Animal-origin ingredients.

To use
After applying toner, pump two to three times in your palm and apply gently over the face, moving along the skin surface.

I love the nifty 10ml plastic pump bottle with cap, which is perfect for throwing into my gym bag. It also dispenses the right amount to use – 2 pumps will work for the face and neck.

This is lightweight, non-tacky and gets absorbed by the skin in a matter of seconds after spreading it about on a damp face. Very impressive. Most essences I know take some time to sink in, but this doesn’t. A moisturiser is required if you have combination, normal to dry skin. There is a very light fragrance, akin to rosewater, but not as strong and dissipates quickly.

While I do feel some hydration going on, it’s not as impressive as Hada Labo’s Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturising Lotion. There’s also no “doink doink” after-feel to the skin (Korean and Japanese skincare fans will know what this means, if not, refer to the ads on Youtube :))

If you’re in the Tropics and are after a very lightweight essence, have very oily skin and don’t mind not knowing the exact full ingredients, you will love this. For those with *ahem* more matured skin, this won’t do much for you, except in a pinch.
