BELLFLOWER Hibiscus Anti-Aging Gel Cream ; Say Hello to Your Newest Holy Grail Moisturizer!

December 18, 2019

The Hibiscus flower (Hibiscus Sabdariffa), as skincare junkies should all know by now, has been dubbed to be a superior ingredient for oily, acne prone and aging skin hence the sudden spurt of Hibiscus-infused skincare products in both Korean and Western beauty markets.

Bellflower, one of the leading Kbeauty Brands that utilize naturalistic ingredients of EWG safety grade in their innovative skincare lines, launched their latest collection of Face Creams last September. The brand new collection include six variants namely Coconut Daily Moisture Cream, Hibiscus Anti-Aging Gel Cream, Glutathione Power Brightening Cream, Azulene Calming Overnight Cream, Idebenone Glowing Face Cream and the newest addition, the Tamanu Oil Barrier Relief Cream, all of which cater to various skin concerns.

Packaging comes in a sleek, matte White tube with minimal Pink detailing.

I was lucky enough to be gifted with the Hibiscus Anti-Aging Gel Cream, (Hello Mr. Daniel Park!) which is rather timely to my primary issue which is aging skin. I recently turned 33 and I’m already noticing baby wrinkles along my mouth and eye areas. Read on to know whether it can slump my current Holy Grail moisturizer off the top spot, or was it really just overhyped?

WHAT IT IS: The cream is a lightweight (gel-type) on-point moisturizer that addresses dark spots, textured and aging skin.

VOLUME: 60ML
PRICE: $15.00 (Approx PHP750)

CLAIMS:

-Non-sticky and absorbs quickly
-Blocks Melanin pigmentation
-Helps prevent spots & freckles
-Produces collagen for more elastic and radiant skin

Cutesy White and Pink tube that complements my fancy and frilly floral basket ^^

NOTABLE INGREDIENTS:

Hibiscus sabdariffa flower extract 5,000ppm – contains a large amount of Vitamin C and Citric Acid which help to purify the skin by breaking down dead skin and increasing cell turnover. They can even help to control acne breakouts.

Adenosine – It is a yeast-derived ingredient that functions as a good soothing and skin-restoring agent. It has proven anti-wrinkle benefits due to its ability to energize skin’s surface so it looks smoother and younger. (Obtained from Paula’s Choice)

Collagen – It is the most abundant protein in our skin. The benefits of collagen in our skin include the improvement of skin elasticity, reduces wrinkles and increases skin moisture.

Viscous consistency but very lightweight Gel-type cream perfect for humid climates.

COMPLETE INGREDIENTS:
Water, Camellia japonica seed oil, Glycerin, Butylene glycol, Prunus armeniaca (Apricot) kernel oil, Cetearyl alcohol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Hibiscus sabdariffa flower extract, Lonicera japonica (Honeysuckle) flower extract, Cetearyl glucoside, Arginine, Carbomer, Hydrolyzed collagen, Tremella fuciformis extract, Adenosine, Disodium EDTA, Wheat amino acids, Acorus calamus root extract, Perilla ocymoides leaf extract, Rosa centifolia flower water, Caprylyl glycol, Acetyl hexapeptide-8, Natto gum, Gardenia florida fruit extract

DIRECTIONS: Apply a pea-sized amount on face, ideally during PM routine.

Gel-type cream, easily absorbed by the skin. No tackiness.

THOUGHTS: I was able to jot down my personal PROs and CONs after one month of using the product.

PROS:

  • Since it’s a gel-type cream, it’s truly lightweight and my skin drinks it very quickly.
  • Has a velvet-y finish, almost similar to a silicone primer. No tackiness whatsoever.
  • It wears well under makeup, prevents my foundie from caking.
  • It doesn’t make me oily, quite perfect for PH’s humid weather.
  • Feels very gentle on my skin. It contains Vitamin C due to the Hibiscus ingredient but it didn’t irritate my skin, so sensitive-type approved!
  • A little goes a long way. I only need a pea sized amount to cover my entire face.
  • Tube packaging is slender, making it great for travel kits.
  • Noticeable plumpness and glow on my skin lately 💓
  • I love its natural aromatic scent. Extremely mild scent of flowers, with a tinge of earth. .
Easily sets to a velvet-y, almost matte finish and perfect for pre-makeup.

CONS:

  • SURPRISE! None.

RATING: 10/10. I am truly, madly, deeply in love with this cream! I’m liking the state of my skin ATM and I thank this product for it. I recently broke out so I went on another skincare diet which includes this one. This is heaven-sent for aging ladies like me. It really helped out with my bumps, texture and dullness and lives up to its claims. Truly Anti-aging! I only have amazing words for this.

REPURCHASE: Absolutely! Thank you Mr. Park for letting me try this. Kansahamnida!
