Think of belif Aqua Bomb Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm as a makeup remover, face wash and moisturizer all in one. With a precious, apothecary-like formula, this herbal balm changes texture three times from jar to face. Sherbet-like at first, it turns into a rich cream on contact with the skin and then liquifies into a silky oil that effectively removes makeup and washes away impurities.
Greenery in a Jar
Inspired by its bestselling predecessor, belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb, this gentle cleansing balm boasts the same herbaceous base. Lady’s Mantle, an herb known for its antioxidant effects, is still the main ingredient but the balm is now enriched with lotus-flower and marshmallow roots – two thirst-quenching superheroes that will ensure skin is left hydrated and pliant, even after deep cleansing.
Apply a small amount evenly over dry face and massage in circular motions using your fingertips. Once the formula turns into oil, that’s your cue to rinse it off with lukewarm water. Pretty easy, right?
Not only is the Aqua Bomb Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm amazing at its job, it’s also free of mineral oil, synthetic dyes, synthetic fragrances, sulphates and animal-derived ingredients.
A New Cult Favourite Is Born
Here are four reasons why belif Aqua Bomb Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm has become my nighttime-beauty-routine go-to.
- It’s quick. “I usually wash my face right before bed, so I’m always exhausted at that point. Being able to remove my makeup AND clean my skin in one step is pretty much my dream scenario.”
- It’s efficient. “Its cream-to-oil formula melts away my makeup – even the most stubborn, won’t-go-away stuff – in just a few seconds.”
- It’s eco-friendly. “I can forgo the usual cotton pads in favour of my fingertips, avoiding unnecessary waste and allowing an overall greener skincare ritual.”
It’s hydrating. “Cleansers tend to leave my skin feeling dry and tight, but not this one! After I rinse it off, my face feels plumped, soft and, most importantly, moisturized.”
