My skin has pretty much always been a hot mess.The severe acne I once dealt with has now given way to hyperpigmentation spots, unevenness and texture issues.
This has caused me to seek out and try many different products that I thought might help me.
The retinol moisturizing cream by Belei is a product I have been using for a few months now. I wanted to provide a little bit of information about it and give my review for this post.
The Belei brand
Belei is a skincare line by Amazon. It is still a pretty new as it only came out around 2019.
The line includes 15 different products that address issues such as wrinkles, dryness, acne and clarity. They offer these products in the forms of moisturizers, serums, cleansers, spot treatments and they also sell a face mask.
Amazon makes it easy to pick out the Belei product(s) that might work for you. This is done by giving customers the capability of choosing by their skin concern or preferred skin solution (i.e. brighten).
The prices for these products range from $9-40.
Belei Retinol Refining Moisturizer
The Retinol Refining Moisturizer was made to improve the look of our skin and provide moisturization. The ingredients in this product include retinol and a lot of things that are considered to be moisturizing (i.e. squalene, aloe vera, green tea extract etc.).
Retinol is a skin care ingredient that is found in a lot of OTC products and is a form of vitamin A. It is used for certain skin conditions such as wrinkles, fine lines, unevenness and dark spots.
It has a light, creamy consistency and can be applied in the morning and/or night. When using it in addition to other skin care products, it should be applied after the serum (if you use one). The company also recommends putting on sunscreen throughout the day.
The Retinol Refining Moisturizer is said to be good for any skin type. It comes in a 1.7 oz portion for $35.00. The container is a round, plastic tub with a push top that dispenses the product.
As stated before, I have been using the Retinol Refining Moisturizer for a while now.
I came across it on my hunt for a retinol treatment and I have been using it pretty much every night since it was delivered. Miracles were never expected but I was hoping that some positive change might happen.
I had put up a post a while back about my skin care plan (which included this product). It was going to involve using a multitude of things. This did not happen.
I got lazy.
I have only been using sunscreen during the day and the retinol moisturizer at night. Nothing else!
After these few months of using the product, I have not noticed a difference. This is most likely due to the fact that I did not pair it with anything else and because it is not strong enough to combat my skin issues.
I do actually like the retinol moisturizer though. It has not made my skin worse which is a good thing. Also, it does do a very nice job of moisturizing.
Belei products being fragrance-free is something that I really appreciate. My husband has severe fragrance allergies so I am unable to use many products on the market due them having fragrances in them. It is nice that a company realizes that their products smelling perfume-y does not make them any better.
The thing that I really do not like about the product is the container. It looks nice but the push-top for dispensing is just weird to me. That is really my only grip about it.
Retin-A will definitely be my next skin care product. This is because I can get lazy (having it be the only thing I use) and it will most likely still yield some good results in my skin.
I would still recommend this product
Even though the Retinol Refining Moisturizer by Belei has not done anything for my skin issues, I am not going to say it is total trash or anything like that. I think it could be really good for other people.
If you are searching for new skin care products, consider checking out what Belei has to offer. You might find your holy grail!
