Amazon’s Own Skincare Routine – Is It Any Good?

Amazon have there hands in so much of our lives that it was only a matter of time until they branched out into our skincare routine!

The brand is called Belei and its tag line is:

‘No beauty secrets, only beauty solutions’. 

Now that sounds like something we could get on board with. They state that:

‘Belei offers a simple approach to skincare with products built around key ingredients with proven effectiveness. Always dermatologically tested, our products are developed to deliver results. Nothing less, nothing more’. 

Their prices range from £8-£20. This brand is sounding better by the minute!

One thing that is a downfall is that of the brand is that the brand is not cruelty free – if it is, it isn’t well labelled.

All of the skin care products are have a Swiss formula and the majority are fragrance free.

Cleansers to add to your skin care routine

Ultra Sensitive Gentle Cleansing Milk

This product removes make-up whilst also hydrating the skin. It’s fragrance free formula ensures it is suitable for all skin types.

The product has a five star review, stating:

‘Cleansed face and neck well. No stickiness left on skin. Took off waterproof mascara and removed lipstick without a problem. Face feels soft & smooth.

‘No perfumes as I react to both limonene and linalool which cuts out 99% of products. Very happy with product. Priced well. Will buy again’.

Ultra Sensitive Purifying Face Wash

Again, this is a fragrance free product which removes make-up, dirt and excess sebum.

This is best suited for those with sensitive and oily skin and, over time, should help reduce a shiny appearance. They recommend using it twice a day and following with a moisturiser.

Gentle Cleansing Milk for Normal Skin

Like the previous products, this cleanser removes make-up and dirt. However, what makes it different to the rest is that no rinsing is necessary!

Milk cleansers have a lightweight formula ensuring that they don’t add to your clogged pores and are suitable for both morning and evening use.

Simply apply the cleanser to a cotton pad – preferably reusable – and wipe over the face.

Cleansing Mousse for Normal Skin

This cleansing mousse is ideal for normal skin. The foaming formula can be quite stripping so we recommend that you always follow up with a moisturiser.

A plethora of moisturisers for your skincare routine

Moisturisers make up the majority of Belei’s skincare products. This may seem strange but that way there is at least something for everyone!

As Amazon say,

‘Using the right moisturiser for your skin can help maintain its balance, reduce the appearance of blemishes and help your skin stay fresh’.

Ultra Sensitive Soothing Day Moisturiser

Best for sensitive skin, this moisturiser features sun protection in the form of a UV-filter.

Amazon recommend only using this in the mornings by sweeping across the face and neck, whilst avoiding the eyes.

Ultra Sensitive Nourishing 24hr Moisturiser

Yet another product created for sensitive skin, this moisturiser promises to give nourishing moisture for 24 hours!

Again, this is a fragrance free formula.

Detox Day Moisturiser with SPF 15

This is the complementary day version of the previous product.

Formulated with nordic cotton and vitamin E, this day moisturiser has an SPF 15 to protect your skin from the sun.

Similarly to the night cream, they say that skin feels fresh and radiant.

Ultra Sensitive Anti-Ageing Day Moisturiser with SPF 15

This moisturiser also features an SPF 15 to protect against sun damage and prevent any early signs of ageing.

It has been developed for ultra sensitive skin so can be used by anybody.

Are there any night moisturisers?

Ultra Sensitive Anti-Ageing Night Moisturiser

The sister moisturiser to the previous product, this nightly moisturiser is said to improve skin firmness as well as hydration.

It has also been developed for the most sensitive of skins and hence has a fragrance free formula.

Detox Night Moisturiser

One of their few night moisturisers, Belei have formulated this product with rice oil and vitamin E to nourish dry skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

They claim that after use, skin feels fresh and radiant. Like their day moisturisers, Amazon recommend that you use this on both the face and neck regions.

Detox Ultra-Light Moisturising Gel

This product has received a four star rating:

‘Quick delivery. Smells lovely and a little goes a long way’.

You know what that means? More product for your money!

What makes this moisturiser stand out is its gel formulation; according to Belei,

‘Gel moisturisers are lighter than creams and quickly absorbed into the skin’.

Therefore, it is perfect for those who hate the feeling of a rich, heavy moisturiser. It is said to hydrate the skin for up to 24 hours and prevents premature ageing.

Don’t forget an eye cream!

Dark Circle Softening Eye Cream

This Swiss formula is created with a vitamin C derivate as well as vitamin E to soften the dark spots around the eyes.

Belei ensures that it both nourishes and protects the skin, leaving it with a fresh feel.

It has had yet another five star rating for the brand:

‘I’m really happy with this new eye cream. I just thought I’d give it a try when it first came out. I’ve used it for about three weeks and the skin around my eyes has improved.

‘It feels a lot softer and hydrated and also a slight improvement with dark circles. An all-round good product with no fragrance’.

Ultra Sensitive Anti-Ageing Eye Cream

Similarly to the other Ultra Sensitive products, this has a fragrance free formula which means it is suitable for everyone.

They recommend using a small amount twice a day to prevent the appearance of any fine lines.

An influx of masks

Belei has a range of sheet, mud and eye masks for your skincare routine.

Eye masks

Revitalising Eye Mask

This eye mask has been formulated with grape extract – a natural ingredient rich in antioxidants to help firm and hydrate the skin.

It is also formulated with vitamins C and E from pomegranate extracts. It also claims to have no drips or rinsing.

Nourishing and Protecting Eye Patches

The hero ingredient in these eye patches is caviar extract, which is rich in omega acids which hydrate the skin – giving it a more radiant and youthful appearance.

Hydrating and Lifting Eye Mask

This eye mask focuses on diamond powder, a topical mineral which leaves the skin brightened and tightened.

The formula also contains hyaluronic acid and co-enzyme Q10.

Brightening Eye Mask

This eye mask features 24k gold extracts which lift, brighten and calm the skin.

It also contains vitamin E and multi-weight hyaluronic acid for extra hydration and elasticity.

Lifting Effect Eye Mask

Peptides are at the heart of this formula; they contain a mix of skin boosting proteins which reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Anti-ageing Eye Mask

Pearl powder is at the heart of this formula, an ingredient which is mainly found in ancient Chinese medicine.

This eye mask will make the eye area brighter and more hydrated.

Face masks

Deep Cleansing Charcoal Mask

This is the brands only mud mask. As with most masks in this formulation, it mattifies, leaving skin clear and even.

Featuring activated charcoal, it cleanses and clarifies your pores.

Yet another five star rating for this product:

‘Fantastic facial mask. Didn’t go rock hard on my face and I knew when to rinse off when colour changed.

‘I have quite a few enlarged pores and this mask used 3 times a week has shown a marked improvement. Thank you Amazon for a quality product at a reasonable price’.

Most of the sheet masks are corresponding products to the eye masks. For example, there is an anti-ageing sheet mask; a brightening sheet mask; a lifting sheet mask; a revitalising sheet mask; a nourishing and protecting mask; and, a toning and hydrating mask.

The latter is perhaps the odd one out as it doesn’t have a corresponding eye mask. It features natural collagen, hyaluronic acid and vitamin E.

These ingredients keep skin looking youthful, firm and reduces signs of ageing.

Your skincare routine needs a serum

Vitamin Booster Serum

This is formulated with vitamin C, E and super berries to create an antioxidant serum full of vitamins!

The serum is said to tighten facial contours, protect against premature ageing and leave skin feeling soft and supple.

This product has got a four star rating:

‘was sceptical about this product but the serum is very light and it absorbs really nice into my skin. There is a definite difference to the dark bags under my eyes!
‘As a new mum this is a life saver Having used various other serums before, this is by far the best serum. Absorption is quite quick with no oily look, there is a visible difference after using the product for a week’.

Ultra Sensitive Anti-Ageing Hydrating Serum

Another ultra sensitive product, this serum helps prevent skin irritation and the formation of wrinkles.

This serum was also rated four stars:

‘This product is great. I noticed improvements in my skin after a day or two. My face looked healthier and younger. The reason I only have 4 stars instead of 5 is because I do wish they sold this in a bigger bottle.

‘If you’re looking for better healthier skin I would recommend this more than night cream and the vitamin syrum. They are still very good it’s just that I had the best results with this one’.

What else is there for a skincare routine?

Ultra Sensitive Clarifying and Refreshing Toning Water

Some people don’t believe in toner, but we believe it is important to a skincare routine, especially for oily or blemish prone skin. As it is part of the Ultra Sensitive line, it is suitable for anyone to use.

The fragrance free formula gently gives the skin another cleanse and balances your pH levels.

Fresh Complexion Face Peel

According to Belei:

Face peels accelerate cell turnover by removing the upper layers of the skin. They improve the skin’s tone and texture, as well as minimise fine lines’.

The formula includes fine granules to remove any dead skin cells and clean out your pores. 

Amazon recommends using the product 1-2 times a week a on moisturised face and neck.
