Since it first hit the U.S. Market, Belif’s fan-favorite Aqua Bomb moisturizer has been a staple of dermatologists, skin-care devotees, & newly-minted skin-care enthusiasts. Thanks to lớn its addictive, cooling gel-cream texture and nourishing formula, fans ( editors among them) have made the moisturizer a best-seller và rushed lớn scoop up jumbo versions và limited-edition sets. But even Aqua Bomb diehards have to vị the occasional moisturizer switch-up, and that’s where the Moisturizing Bomb comes in. It’s a cream moisturizer that’s meant for dry, flaky, or dull skin in need of an intense dose of hydration. Whichever moisturizer you pick — & I, for one, pick both depending on the season and my skin’s needs — you’ll get a serious nourishment boost.

This month, Belif is introducing a brand-new mix that’s got the goods: the Aqua Bomb Dive Into Hydration Set (Available at The mix contains a full four-step skin-care routine in a box, including deluxe sizes of cleansing balm, toner, và eye cream, and a full-size version of the Holy Grail moisturizer.

Here’s how to lớn know which beloved Bomb is for you:

Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb

This lightweight, gel-cream moisturizer has been my go-to since before I even became a beauty editor. It’s soothed my acne-prone skin và sunk gently into oily areas & dry areas (blessed lớn have both). You can practically feel it working lớn plump up your skin immediately, & thanks khổng lồ the gentle texture, it absorbs quickly and fully into skin. It’s also the moisturizer I find myself recommending to lớn friends most often, since the experience of slathering on a cooling gel-cream is so luxurious.

According to thành phố new york City-based cosmetic dermatologist Michele Green, gel-creams typically contain active ingredients with a smaller molecular size, allowing them lớn penetrate deeply into the skin. Belif’s team of scientists developed Aqua bomb with a combination of traditional herbal formulas and modern K-beauty skin science. It’s made with horsetail, chickweed, nettle, plantain, & lady’s mantle, the latter of which Green tells is “known for its ability khổng lồ calm the skin, reducing redness, inflammation, and irritation.”

I’ll admit it — I’m a gel-cream girl, and the cushiony texture here is my favorite part of Aqua Bomb. I like to use Aqua Bomb during the summer months, whenever I have a breakout, or in at-home facials, and I find myself re-upping this one multiple times per year — which, coming from someone who’s buried in a mountain of hydration options all year long, is very high praise indeed.

In the winter months, or whenever I notice my combination skin inching towards dry, I switch over from a gel-cream texture khổng lồ a heavier cream. While Green points out that gel-creams can be just as hydrating, there’s just something about the hearty, slightly thicker formula that feels lượt thích the perfect act of dry-skin self-care. Moisturizing Bomb is meant for day or night use, và it works both under makeup (and sunscreen) and as a sleep cream.


The Napiers formula here is just as lushly herbal, with extracts from comfrey leaf, calendula, rose, chickweed, và oat. “Oats have been known to reduce inflammation of the skin as well as stimulate the production of collagen,” explains Green. “The benefit is that the oats bind to lớn the skin creating a shield against irritations và locking in natural moisture from your skin.”

In addition to lớn the nourishing formula, I’m also a major fan of the product’s ever-so-slightly sweet & earthy natural scent. There’s no added fragrance here, but the combination of extracts in the formula and the pillowy texture of the moisturizer always transport me to a seaside house with freshly-laundered white towels. (Maybe the adorable cap on my tub, which shows a hippopotamus in a river, has something to vày with it?) Wherever it sensorially transports you, you’ll have silky, plump, & hydrated skin while you’re there.
