BelleWave Skincare Review and GiveAway
Today I am going to share with you about the latest skincare range that I have tried and it is coming all the way from Switzerland. Have you heard of BelleWave? This gems have been hiding exclusively in various beauty salons around the country. It is my first time encounter with this product, and I am honestly surprised when I found out that they have been brought into Malaysia for almost 15 years. Not bad huh?
I have been training myself to read the ingredients/product info before putting any products onto my face. Good to know that BelleWave range are botanical based, free from mineral oil and does not test their products on animals. I found it to be a solid plus point.
One of the thing that makes this BelleWave special compared to other skin care range is that they stress on the importance of double cleansing. Yes… ladies… Double cleansing. Y? Because imagine that your skin is a sponge and your make up is the dirt on top of it. If you don’t clean your “sponge” properly.. the next product you put on top wont be able to absorb fully and cant be able to perform at its maximum capacity. So, it is best to ensure that our “sponge” is squeaky clean so we won’t waste next products in line.
Since I have a combination skin, below are the range of products suitable for me. If you have normal, oily or any other specific condition then you might want to get consultation on which range is good for you.
• BelleWave ClearWave Deep Cleansing Milk (RM168)
• BelleWave ClearWave De-Bac Washing Foam (RM168)
• BelleWave ClearWave De-Bac Astringent Lotion (RM168)
• BelleWave ClearWave Comedone Repair Activist (RM168)
• Bellewave Sunwave UV Extra DNA De-Tox UV Block (RM168)
Allow me to walk you through my current skincare routine. Jommm.. let’s go..
First step, here we have the WhiteWave Gentle Cleansing Milk. It works like a make up remover. Which means it helps to remove as much make-up, dead cells and impurities. Great thanks to the active ingredients it works delicately on our skin resulting an immediate boost of softness and suppleness. The Mulberry Root Extract will give you the glow while papaya fruit extract enhance your skin texture and improve your complexion. As for my personal experience, I like the light and gentle formulation. I also like the fact that they incorporated vitamins even from the first step of the skincare regime. The texture of the products reminds me of a lotion.

Next we have to wash our face with this gel-to-foam ClearWave De-Bac Washing Foam. It penetrates deep into the pores without drying the skin to gently restore your skin glow for a radiant complexion. As I mentioned earlier, BelleWave strongly suggest all of their users to go for double cleansing. As I was reading the products info, cant help but to notice mushroom extract. I am like what?? mushroom then after googling.. found out that it is a clever ingredients to be included because of its astringent, pore-tightening and moisturizing properties. Personally like the smell of freshness thanks to the rosemary and peppermint essential oil. I like how my skin felt very clean but still very supple. I have tried products that give me almost the same kind of cleanliness feeling but it end up leaving my skin feeling tight… so I am please ofcozzzz.. hahaha

Step 3, we have this BelleWave ClearWave De-Bac Astringent Lotion and it is a toner. It is not any other ordinary toner okay? This toner contain all the awesome ingredients which helps to improve skin purity, on top prohibiting the formation of black heads and bacterial inhabitants. If you have a large pores issue then you might want to grab this toner as it also dramatically tighten up pores and make it visually smaller. As for me, I like to use it very generously on my face as the texture is very watery and the absorption rate is quite impressive.

We are now at step 4, my personal favourite step. Hehe…. It is serum time! and we will be using the Comedone Repair Activist. If you are wondering what is comedone..here a fun fact for you :
A comedo is a clogged hair follicle (pore) in the skin. Keratin (skin debris) combines with oil to block the follicle. A comedo can be open (blackhead) or closed by skin (whitehead), and occur with or without acne. The word comedo comes from Latin to suggest the worm-like look of a blackhead that has been secreted.
Armed with all the active ingredients such as Burdock Root Extract, tomato juice, Camomile extract, calendula extract including salicylic acid this products helps to nourish, repair and protect our skin from comedone.
The texture is runny with a lil bit of silky feeling to it. Plus, I like the diffuser so stylo. Make me feel like a scientist at home LOL … By the way, few drops needed during application and I like to massage it slowly using circular motion focusing on my concern areas. You might want to focus on your T-zone as well.

We reached the final steps. One of the most important steps of all especially if you are the outdoor active type. Even if you are not, why risk? Protection and prevention is the key to healthy beautiful skin. So at this last step we move to sunblock. This non-greasy, ultra-light emulsion sunblock aim to give a complete protection over UV rays. On top of that, Detoxilene: A purifying complex activates drainage, reduces tissue clogging and the shea butter encourage the generation of new cells. Which contribute to a baby soft skin!
P/s: I noticed that my make up stay longer when ever I applied any sunblock.. Is there any scientific reasoning for that? hahaha
RM168 for 35ml
After using it religiously for 3 weeks plus, cant help but to noticed that my scars are lighten up. My skin complexion improve, look fresher and more radiant. If you see me everyday then you might not be able to see the impact but once I put this before and after picture side by side.. Happy to see the difference. This product does full fill its promises so far and I am genuinely happy about it. The only thing bothering me is that the price.. I mean the I dont have bunch of money rain down on me everymonth… The total cost for the whole range above is around RM840. Honestly, it is a lot of money but considering that most of the products come in 200ml and it does work so even if I have to spend my own money.. I found it to be worth it.
Thanks to BelleWave, is having promotion now that you can get 3 essential products for only RM198 (instead of RM504.. great saving!)
I am also giving out not 1 not 2 but 5 sets of BelleWave's travel set skincare size worth RM138
