Belif Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask /
You already know I love the skincare brand Belif. I have tried and reviewed their Creamy Moisturizer Deep Moist (review here and product available here), their Milky Moisturizer Hydra Balancing (review here and product available here) which made it to my list of favorite light moisturizers for Summer (read here). And I of course can’t live without their Cleansing Gel Oil enriched (review here and product available here) which is making my makeup removal routine so much more enjoyable. So it comes as no surprise that I wanted to try more products from them and as my skin has been quite dehydrated lately and I needed a boost of moisture and hydration, I gave this Belif Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask a go.
You probably already know that I am not a big mask person. As much as I am obsessed with skincare, masks have never been my thing really, with the exception of one type of mask: sleeping masks. I absolutely love masks you can sleep in. I guess my issues with masks in general is the logistics of it, the planning of when to do it so you have time, and then you have to remove it and so on. I can layer skincare to infinity but somehow, when it comes to masks I’m simply not into it. But there’s nothing more luxurious than the feel of a good hydrating soothing mask that you can sleep in. Here are my thoughts on the Belif one.
What is the Belif Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask?
It’s a hydrating mask that you leave on over night with a jelly like bouncy type texture. You know those new trendy textures now that are bouncy and sticky and that get back into place. It’s quite thick but gel like so very easy to apply. Feels very fresh onto the skin. It is sticky yes, but only right after you’ve applied it. Then it blends with the skin and won’t stick to the pillow or sheets, which we like. Who wants to mess up their sheets? No one. The mask stays put on your face, which is where we want it so it can work its hydration magic.
Belif is a Korean brand, they don’t use any nasties, no parabens, no sulfates. Approved.
No breakouts to report, so acne prone skins can give it a go.

How to use the Belif Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask?
After your retinol and/or serum, apply a small amount (it goes a long way!) and massage onto skin. Then go to bed and wake up with replenished dewy skin.
I have seen a difference in my skin’s hydration levels and I am very pleased.
Only 2 things I am not crazy about…
I truly love this product and will buy it again (been using it around 4 nights a week for now a month) but there are 2 things that don’t make me so happy. You know what the first one is going to be: it comes in a jar. I love products that come in a pump, tube or spray, I believe they make the world a better place, it’s more hygienic, keeps the product fresher longer and makes my life easier. You guessed it, I don’t like jars whatsoever. This product though gets a joker card cause I know that its thick bouncy gel texture cannot be dispensed in any other packaging, so I have to take one for the team and accept the jar…
Second thing, I don’t recommend applying this mask too close to the eye area. I always apply my skincare around my eyes and it always works fine. I’ve weirdly have more puffy eye lids issues with eye creams overnight than with regular creams and serums… But that’s for another blog post.
Here’s the thing with eye creams, for a cream to be approved to be used as an eye cream, it has to go through very expensive testings so most brands don’t take their face creams and serums through those test, for budget reasons. Doesn’t mean it can’t go around the eyes, it simply mean it hasn’t been tested.
I have of course put the mask around my eyes and I have to admit that if I do so, the next morning my eyes don’t look so fresh. The rest of my skin and face look amazing and radiant, but my eye lids, not so much. So avoid the eye area, the texture is too sticky for it 😉
For which skin type:
Any skin that needs a boost of hydration. So basically everyone. Dehydration is the number skin issue so cater to your skin, she’s thirsty!
The Belif Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask retails at $34 for 2.53 oz / 75 ml. I believe you get great value for your money. Available here.
