If you’re a skin-care junkie, you may be in a rush to try new products often, but if you have problem skin, trying new brands can be a little intimidating.
While everyone’s skin is different, one way you can determine the good and the bad is to do your research on specific ingredients and read reviews.
Amazon’s skin care line, Belei, is new to the market but has definitely taken the industry by storm. Belei offers a wide range of products: serums, moisturizers, masks, cleansers, spot treatments and more. The best part? All of them are formulated without sulfates, parabens, and phthalates. Plus, they’ve been dermatologist tested, not tested on animals, and already have a sizable following.
“I used to own a spa and I am a product junkie. We offer different skin care lines, most of which retail for over $100,” said one Amazon reviewer. “Not one of those lines compared to Amazon’s new Belei line. I ordered two products to try and in two weeks my skin looked better than it did in years. ”
