belif – First Aid 360 Eye Care Mask | Review

.

belif first aid 360 eye care mask

In a Few Words

A moisturizing eye mask with a pudding-like texture that is appropriate to use around the entire eye area.

Belif’s First Aid 360 Eye Care Mask is a “hydrating pudding-like eye care mask releases stress around the eyes and replenishes moisture levels to dry eye rims… The leave-on, cooling and hydrating formula—infused with mimosa herb extract—instantly cools, relieves puffy and fatigued eyes, and prevents visible wrinkles by improving the resilience of the skin around the eye. Further enhanced with three belif napiers formulas (original, detox, and dark circle formulas),” – Napiers are tinctures and formulas formulated by an herbalist,Duncan Napiers, in the late 1800’s. –  are part of  “this eye care mask fights all signs of fatigue and diminishes the appearance of dark circles and puffiness around the delicate and sensitive eye areas.” The Belif First Aid 360 Eye Care Mask comes in a 25 ml plastic pot and retails for about $35.00.

The winter weather wreaks havoc on my skin and the sensitive skin around my eyes is the hardest hit. I tend to get patches of dermatitis on or by my eyelids and the corners of my eyes get extremely dry and chapped because my eyes tend to water constantly. I picked up this mask in desperation hoping I could find something to really soothe and moisturize my sad, angry eyes. Unfortunately, this mask doesn’t offer anything more than an average eye cream would (except that it’s ok to use on your lids, but I will use any eye cream on my lids if I need to). The mask is just fine as a moisturizer, but it doesn’t offer intense hydration or cooling or soothing. Also, the texture is so weird (legitimately like pudding) that it’s awkward to get out a small amount and warm it up between fingers, so I always feel like I’m using too much and wasting it. Even though I don’t like this cream by Belif, my savor this winter has been Belif’s Moisturizing and Firming Eye Cream!

The First Aid 360 Eye Mask is just fine as a budget friendly, basic eye cream, but if you’re looking for an SOS product, this will disappoint.

Notable ingredients it DOES have:
Mimosa Herb Extract: Prevents visible wrinkles by increasing skin resilience around the eyes in addition to relieving signs of fatigue by reducing irritation with tannins, amino acids, and other nutritive elements.
Napiers Original Formula: Contains ant-oxidation, skin calming, anti-trouble and antiaging properties to keep skin healthy.
Napiers Detox Formula: Purifies the skin by removing impurities and delivering antioxidants for improved skin texture.
Napiers Dark Circle Formula: Alleviates dark circles under the eyes with its antioxidant and brightening effects.

Current Favorites – Drugstore Powder Highlighters

I hate to admit it, but it took me a loonngg time to get on the dewy skin/highlighter bandwagon. Trust me, I have learned the error of my ways – I love the way my makeup looks more than ever now that I have embraced the glow!

I hate to admit it, but it took me a loonngg time to get on the dewy skin/highlighter bandwagon. Trust me, I have learned the error of my ways – I love the way my makeup looks more than ever now that I have embraced the glow! Most days my makeup is a simple, glowy look focusing on great skin – so I like the way a less intense highlight looks. I am not really into the intense, wet looking highlighters and I don’t need UFOs to see my cheekbones in outer space. I like highlighters with a more subtle glow and they must be invisible when I’m looking head-on. I don’t like big, chunky glitter but I’m okay with smaller sparkles. For a reference point – my most used highlighter is Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Ethereal Light … subtle as hell … and technically not a highlighter but it’s lovely and natural. My favorite drugstore highlighters are moderately glowy, kind of sparkly, and suitable for fair skin.

Essence – Pure Nude Highlighter – Be My Highlight
– nude base with very fine silver and gold shimmer
– most subtle of the bunch
– gives a beautiful no-highlighter highlighter look

Colourpop –Super Shock Cheek – Hippo
– icy lavender base with very fine pearlescent pink/purple/silver/gold shimmer
– lavender is pretty subtle, mostly looks like pearlescent glow
– looks great as complement to an orange eye look

Wet n Wild – Megaglo Highlighting Powder- Precious Petals
– gold base with very fine pink and gold shimmer
– shimmer is extremely subtle, mostly looks like a sheen on the skin
– all of the Megaglo Highlighters are gorgeous (except the blueish one – it’s not my jam)

J. Cat Beauty – You Glow Girl Baked Highlighter – Bella Rose
– cool pink base with pink shimmer
– most intense of the bunch
– a great way to amp up a look with a neutral eye

I’ve almost finished my Leahlani Skincare Aloha Ambrosia Morning Moisture Elixir and I’m so torn – on one hand it’s an amazing SOS ingredient for dry skin (it makes the biggest difference in healing the dermatitis around my eyes) but, on the other hand, it looks greasy, it feels greasy, it never fully absorbs into my skin, and it has a heavy floral scent.
