When it comes to beauty products, I’m not really all that fancy or picky. As long as a product doesn’t cause irritation or make me break out, I’m fine to use just about anything, regardless of the name brand or what other shoppers say about it.

A few weeks back, I ran out of the whatever random face moisturizer I’d been using, so I decided to start using a jar of belif The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb that I had received as a sample months ago. The first day I used it, I touched my face without thinking and almost couldn’t believe it was my skin I was feeling. The belif moisturizer made my skin insanely soft, to the point that I didn’t even recognize my own skin!

Shocked by how well the belif moisturizer worked after just one use, I decided to check the internet to see if I was the only person who knew about this gem. As it turns out, I was late to the game. Over at Sephora, the belif The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb has more than 4,400 ratings and over 139,000 loves. Shoppers overwhelmingly give this face cream five out of five stars, with people raving about how hydrating it is.

“This is my all-time favorite moisturizer!” one shopper commented. “I get a lot of skin care through PR and subscriptions, and this is the one moisturizer I repurchase with my own money. I love how hydrating it is! I have combination/oily skin, and it’s not greasy. Perfect for nighttime hydration. I love this so much; I buy it for my family members and friends.”

Another shopper wrote, “I have rebought this so many times I’m not sure I can even count. I love a good face cream, and this is perfect for me. There are no added scents or extra chemicals, and I love its simplicity. It’s great for me year-round.”

It’s worth reiterating that although this moisturizer is intensely hydrating, it is not greasy at all. It absorbs quickly and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth, not sticky or tacky.

Sharing pics of myself online is not something I enjoy doing, but I totally get that it’s pretty essential when reviewing beauty products. So in case you’re not already convinced that the belif The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb is worth adding to your skin care regime ASAP, here’s a pic of my skin after I used this cream, no makeup, no filters, no ring light. The smoothness you see is all thanks to this belif moisturizer.
