It’s always nice to try out some new skincare products, especially when there’s or preconceived ideas! Belle Azul is a brand from Barcelona and I was sent a few of the products (of my choice) to try. Their range is quite interesting as it doesn’t follow a set formula (of say, cleansers, toners, moisturisers).
I also went for the Mask Collection (€22.99). I chose on the basis of what I would get use out of.
First up the serum! I had to say I worked through this stuff pretty fast. As far as hyaluronic serums go, it’s quite fancy as it contains a mixture of things (see next photo for the ingredients list) but I am aware you can buy 100% pure ones too. I personally quite liked the texture of this one as it isn’t too sticky which I find some are, and it provided a lightweight hydration to my skin without irritation.
I found the scent a little strange though – sort of biscuity.
Another product I got through very fast was the Matte Facial Fluid (SPF 50). I kept this in my make up bad and used it as a primer, which I have to say it worked well. Not too thick, didn’t ball up with foundation on top of it. It is medium rich so if you have very oily skin it might not suit you. It did leave my skin looking nice and even, it wasn’t a ‘dead’ matte finish.
Again due to the sunny weather we have been using in the UK we have got through this very fast.
Finally I chose the Mask set which contains 3 in one set – Glow Revivial, Age Filler and Instant Detox. There’s a guide inside the box on how to apply them and where depending on what kind of base you want.
Glow – for creating radiant skin and hydrating. A bit harder to wash off than the other two colours for some reason.
Age Filler – plumping.
Instant Detox – for oily bits.
These are 30ml each which sounds small but it’s fairly generous since you only need a bit of each one. I used the blue on my forehead and pink on the cheeks, then the green on my t-zone. I wish the lid was a cap rather than a screw on lid (just because I tend to drop and lose things). I didn’t experience any irritation and it was quite a nice mask. I found the green one very good as the next day my blocked pores were ready to go, know what I mean?
