If you’re a skincare junkie than you likely get a rush from trying out new products on the regular but if you have problematic skin, then trying out new brands may be a bit anxiety-inducing.
While everyone’s skin is different, one way you can vet out the good from the bad is by doing your research on particular ingredients and reading reviews.
Amazon’s skincare line, Belei, is new to the market but definitely taking the industry by storm. Belei offers a variety of products: serums, moisturizers, face masks, cleansers, spot treatments and more. The best part? They’re all formulated without sulfates, parabens and phthalates. Plus, they’re dermatologist tested, not tested on animals and already have a pretty big cult-following.
“I used to own a salon spa and I am a product junkie. We carried various skin care lines, most of them retailing for over $100,” said one Amazon reviewer. “Not one of those lines compared to Amazon’s new Belei line. I ordered two product to try and in two weeks my skin is looking better than it has in years.”

The Belei eye cream is made without any fragrance to improve the appearance of firmness, fine lines and puffiness around the eye area (absorbs quickly to a matte finish).
The triple-peptide formula supports firmness, while hyaluronic acid helps smooth lines and caffeine reduces puffiness. It’s created for all skin types, including sensitive skin and can be used for both day and night, alone or under makeup.
“I have tried so many eye creams. You name it, I have probably purchased it. I live in a very dry area and keeping moisturize is a problem. I really like the texture and feel of this product,” said one reviewer. “After five days of use, I have noticed that my under eye area is not screaming for [moisture] right after washing. I feel like this product is making a difference.”

This Belei moisturizer uses the latest technology in retinol delivery to release vitamin A to the skin over the course of the day or night. A botanical complex soothes the skin, while squalene and hyaluronic acid helps the skin appear smooth and refined.
The brand recommends you use your fingertips to smoothly apply a thin later over a clean complexion in an upward, feathering motion, starting at the base of the neck or chin. If you’re planning to use the Belei Retinol Vitamin A Refining Moisturizer during the day, remember to follow up with your favorite face sunscreen.
“It feels like silk [and] absorbs right away leaving [the] skin feeling smooth and hydrated,” said one happy customer.
“This [product] didn’t break me out at all-which is saying a lot since I can’t look at a new moisturizer without my face breaking out,” another reviewer wrote. “I really love the dispenser too! Just enough cream comes out and you don’t transfer bacteria to the rest of the jar. Love it.”

Give your skin the balance it craves with the Belei Charcoal Balancing Mask. The charcoal formula leaves the skin feeling clean from deep within and the advanced hyaluronic acid helps the skin retain moisture. It’s ideal for all skin types and like most Belei products — formulated without parabens, fragrance, sulfates and phthalates.
The brand recommends you apply a thin layer to clean skin and allow the mask about 10 to 15 minutes to dry. Rinse it off with warm water, using a circular motion with fingertips and pat dry your skin with a clean cloth and follow up with your favorite face moisturizer.
“Best face mask ever!” said one reviewer. “I have oily to combination skin [and this mask] hydrates and cleanses at the same time [leaving] my skin feeling very clean and baby soft.”
