With the worst of winter yet to come, prepare your skin by adding the True Cream Moisturizing Bomb to your beauty arsenal. The fast-absorbing cream takes your flaky, dry skin and makes it supple, deeply nourished and baby soft, without leaving it oily or sticky. Natural, time-tested ingredients like comfrey leaf, oat extract and panthenol protect your skin from the harsh winter elements, no matter your skin type, and attract and hold moisture, putting in work long after application.
Moisturizing Eye Bomb

The secret to crease-free concealer is a smooth, moisturized under–eye area, and the Moisturizing Eye Bomb may very well be your new secret weapon. The lightweight and refreshing eye cream soothes and smooths out fine lines, amps up elasticity and increases the resilience of thin, sensitive under–eye skin with a 26-hour burst of moisture. Using hydrating herbs like comfrey leaf and pennywort, the cream provides a flood of intensive moisture to get your youthful radiance back.
Aqua Bomb Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm

Take off your makeup and replenish your skin’s natural moisturize and oils with the Aqua Bomb Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm. The two-in-one cleanser removes dirt and makeup, protects your skin and minimizes pores without leaving your face feeling tight, dry and stripped of hydration. Do away with the double cleanse with this balm’s unique sherbet texture that’s soft going on and doesn’t leave a mess or oily residue behind. Ingredients like lotus flower, marshmallow root and Lady’s Mantle feed your skin antioxidants, hydrate and inject radiance back into dull skin.
Aqua Bomb Jelly Cleanser

This gentle jelly-to-foam cleanser takes after belif’s ultra-hydrating line of moisturizers, removing all traces of makeup and dirt without stripping your skin of the natural oils that keep it supple and youthful. With ingredients like Lady’s Mantle and Napiers Aqua Formula, the cleanser helps reduce the look of pores, removes impurity from the skin and supports natural cell turnover and hyaluronic acid for a refreshing burst of moisture your skin will thank you for.
