Over the summer I’ve been trying and using a LOT of different skincare. One brand I was super grateful and excited to try out was For Beloved One, which is a top-selling premium skin care brand from Taiwan.
In Canada, you can find For Beloved One products at T&T locations across Canada and also online at YesStyle.ca, and Amazon.ca as well.
For Beloved One Hyaluronic Acid Tri-Molecules Moisturizing Surge Cream($94.99)
This is a face cream that can be used daily, morning and evening. It’s kind of the hallmark moisturizer of For Beloved One. It combines trace elements found in minerals with water to activate the skin’s protective mechanisms. So lightweight, this gel melts instantly into skin with a cooling effect. Rich in copper, the malachite essence found in the cream helps to keep moisture in to relieve dryness. There’s also aquaphyline that hydrates skin and forms a protective layer to lock in moisture, which also helps to keep that moisture in your skin. It also contains an interesting ingredient called Exo-H. Exo-H increases the production of hyaluronic acid in the dermis and activates the skin’s self-hydration mechanism by drawing water from the deeper layers of the body to the skin’s surface. As you can tell, everything in this cream is for hydrating and KEEPING your skin hydrated. I REALLY like this one! After a couple of weeks of using the Surge Cream, I noticed that my skin was so well hydrated and not flaky at all. I think any skin type could use this one too, even oily skins. But if you have a oilier skin I’d use it only once a day not twice.
For Beloved One Melasleep Brightening Daily Defense Cream($55)
A DD Cream! My first one I think! There are three DD creams(rose, peach and lavender), all of which offer skin SPF45.
- Rose tint adds a healthy skin complexion to fairer skin tones.
- Peach tint strengthens foundation for a natural and even skin tone.
- Lavender tint improves dull, sallow and blemished skin.
For Beloved One Melasleep Brightening DD Cream contains a revolutionary ingredient, Purisoft® LS 9602, Moringa Pterygosperma Seed Extract. This is really cool science actually! It’s a positive micro-protein that forms a protective membrane on the skin’s surface which carries a micro negative electron. Dirt particles are positive charged, and since like charges repel each other, pollutants and dirt are unable to adhere to the skin! Neat huh? There’s also Aquaphyline in the DD Cream as well, to help retain and replenish moisture.
I have the peach tint, and I really like it! It does a pretty great job at evening out skin tone and it really brightens it up too. You can kind of feel a protective barrier on your face when wearing it, but it doesn’t leave my face greasy at all. It works well under makeup too as a primer/sunscreen. My only problem with it is that it’s a bit pricey for the amount you get I think. Would I rely on this as JUST my sunscreen? Yup! To effectively cover your face you need at least 1/4 of a teaspoon. And I say at least that much, because it does depend on the dimensions of your face. But also remember that most of us don’t apply ENOUGH sunscreen. So, I always imagine 1/4 of a teaspoon when I dispense SPF into my hand, and that’s what I apply, sometimes more. 1/4 teaspoon is about 1 ml, so that’s about a month and half or so one tube will last. Oh, and the active sunscreen ingredient is Titanium Dioxide which is another plus for me as I prefer mineral sunscreens on my face. Because it is on the pricey side, I prefer to use this on no makeup days, setting it with a bit of powder and that’s it. I’ve just finished the tube I was sent, and have re-purchased another to take with me this week on our 3 week road trip so, that should tell you that I like it a lot.
For Beloved One Hyaluronic Acid Tri-Molecules Moisturizing Bio-Cellulose Mask($63)
These masks are AMAZING. For me they rank right up there with the Tatcha Sheet masks that I love, but those babies cost $34 each. Definitely special occasion masks only. These are expensive too-you get 3 masks for $63, but $21 per mask is a bit more tolerable. Yeah, I know still expensive! But if you want to whip your skin into shape fast these masks will do that! Made with a web-like fibre that’s actually 1/133 as thick as other sheet masks, they hold a lot of serum which is great. The combination of this fibre with the serum allows the mask to actually hold onto the contours and grooves of your skin, actively seeking out wrinkles and fine lines. It’s a smart mask, and its like getting an extra huge shot of the Surge Cream. It infuses your skin with hyaluronic acid, malachite and copper peptide to energize, hydrate, and firm your skin in 15-20 minutes. I leave my masks on for as long as possible, until I feel there isn’t much product left, and this one I leave a good 45 minutes on. SO SO GOOD you guys. Worth every penny!
For Beloved One is a skincare brand that I’m so glad I got to discover and share with you guys. These three products are top notch. Yes I know, they are on the pricey side. But they work and work well. I’ve scouted out the brand at T&T, and sometimes you can find trial sets so that’s what I would do if you’re interested. When I repurchased the Peach DD Cream, I actually bought it in a set that came with 2 mini DD Creams in lavender and rose which was cool and it didn’t cost more than just getting the DD Cream on its own. So there are deals to be found! Personally, I tend to spend my money these days on skincare, and not on makeup. But that’s me, as I’m more on the side of trying to keep my skin at its best so that I don’t have to wear a lot of makeup as I age. For Beloved One has a few other interesting products that I’d love to try and probably will once I get back from the road trip.
What do YOU spend most of your beauty money on? Skincare? Or Makeup?
