Most Helpful Positive Review Light weight and works fast!
This product is light weight and clean feeling! You don't even know it's there. A little goes a long way so this product will last a long time! I applied all over my face and neck and it soaked into my skin fast so I could quickly apply make up after. My face felt very hydrated but not at allll oily which is great! It has a very soft almost non existing scent. Though i really like this product I feel it's a little more expensive than some other brands I get the same results with. However, if you're someone who really values the light weight feel then it's definitely worth the money. I received this product free to try.
Most Helpful Critical Review I like it. Not sure if i love it.
I like that its very light and has barely any scent to it. Its actually borderline watery in my opinion. Used with the aquabomb moisturizer, its amazing. On the packaging, it tells you that it'll increase your skins hydration the level to 20%. To me, i could probably skip that and just use an essence or serum with anti aging plus hydrating properties. The product did what its supposed to do though. So with that, I am happy. Am i gonna purchase full size? Most likely not. The moisturizer aqua bomb is a different story though.

This is a great product for dry skin! It leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated. Another benefit is that it feels lightweight on your skin. It has a nice scent. I definitely recommend this product.

It soaks in super well and isn't thick or sticky at all. It adds a short term glow.
It's a no from me...
Macspangs from Eastlake, Ohio
The texture was very nice, but I wasn't a fan of this. Once it soaked into my skin, it actually felt more tight than it did moisturized unfortunately. I have major combo skin where I'm super oily but also have super dry spots, and it failed to correct either one of those problems. My dry patches stayed dry and it made my face look super greasy. If you have normal skin, id say maybe this is a good fit for you..but I'm still on the hunt!
So much hydration!
Alexandria from Boston, MA
I love using this product in the morning. It makes my face feel so fresh and moisturized. It is lightweight and perfect for summer. I will continue using it into the winter as well!
Would definitely recommend
Jay from Ridgewood, NY
I like to use this product to freshen my skin throughout the day. It provides some relief on humid days and I would imagine provide a lot of moisturizer on cold winter days. I received this complimentary.
Feels nice but doesn't do much.
Grace from Ca
Honestly I was super excited to try this because I love the aqua & the moisture bomb by belif. I applied it in the morning and noticed that it did provide a small boost of hydration but beyond that I didn't notice a big difference in my skin compared to when I do use this and when I don't. I don't think I would repurchase once I run out
The best moisture
Nikki from Los Angeles
I absolutely love this product! It's like a fresh water moisture to your face immediately! Feel it for hours
Moisture, moisture, moisture
lady M from Fort Meade, md
I really love this essence! I've recently been looking for an essence to use after my retinol to add moisture back into my skin. This essence is perfect for that. It absorbs right into my skin and has no smell. It leaves my skin tacky which I find is okay because it helps with my moisturizer application. It is gentle on my sensitive skin. I did notice that my skin was more hydrated after using it. I received this product complimentary in exchange for a review
A decent Essence that gives you glowy looking skin
Jerri from San Jose, CA
I solely use an essence for its hydrating power, being a person with very dry skin. This essence is nice, with its gel-like consistency that melts into the skin once applied. It doesn't pile up under make-up, and it also doesn't feel heavy. I also love the "glow" it gives you. However, I would say this isn't the most hydrating essence I have tried. Also, I am not a fan of the scent, although this one has a lighter one compared to the moisturizer in their same line.
Little Goes A Long Way
Ahleessa from CA
First of all, there's no noticeable scent while using. Secondly, the consistency is in-between liquid to gel-like. It's not thick like a gel but you see a bounce in the product. It's also not thin like a liquid. With that said, it's easy to use. I just pat the product all over the face and neck. It's light-weight, not greasy, and extremely comfortable. It does have a slight stickiness but it only lasts for several minutes. Once it's absorbed into the skin, the stickiness goes away. Lastly, the main concept of this product is to hydrate the skin before the next step in skin care. Since it's hydrating, you use less moisturizer. A little goes a long way with this product.
A good medium
Kailey from Nebraska
Belif products have always been a good beginning or medium skin care line. I was hoping for something a little more hydrating but this one didn't really do the trick. I find an oil spot treat in dry areas to be more helpful for my skin
TinaG007 from Santa Ana
Great essence. Smells fresh and clean. This melts into skin and does not leave residue. Skin felt softer after using.
If ur looking for a sign to buy- this is it
Krisra from Philadelphia
This is one of my favorites. Will be 100% using this product going foreword, nothing else!
Megs from Los angeles
After a nice face washing i apply the belif Hungarian water essence. The essence is lightweight and a little goes a long way. The scent is fantastic. Definitely works on my dry skin. My face feels fresh, plump and looks healthy after using . I then apply the belif aqua bomb moisturizer to lock it all in.
Extra Dose of Hydration
Katherine from Bridgton, ME
Love this water essence! Gives my skin and extra dose of hydration, especially for my dry areas. I love pairing this with the Belif True Cream. It's lightweight, non-sticky, and the scent is light and fresh.
A new staple in my AM and PM skincare routine!
Alex - BeautyReviews411 from Oakland, CA
I have dry skin so I'm always looking for products to give me that extra moisture to my routine. The texture of this product surprised me! It has a watery texture and after application, it gives your skin a tacky feel. This I normally don't mind. I used this prior to a moisture and it feels lovely on the skin, definitely providing much needed hydration! Highly recommend!
I look forward to applying every morning
Diana from Philadelphia
I really, really enjoyed this product. I love how light and refreshing it is. It pairs really well with the Aqua bomb moisturizer. Perfect for summer, I am definitely going to repurchase.
Lena from Okmulgee,oklahoma
I received this as part of a complimentary box. I have to say was a little disappointed because it it leaves my face feeling kind of dry once I put it on that I have to a moisturizer after.
i would recommend this product!
xtine from california
wow! i've always been a skeptical of water type of skincare bc i've tried the tatcha water cream and it just dissolves into nothing personally.
this water essence actually felt really nice and my skin felt super moisturized and clean! the product is super liquidy and thin (duh, water!) and i felt like i needed 3 2-3 pumps to fully absorb into my skin. it absorbed really fast and my skin felt really nice!
i would absolutely recommend this!
Loving my hydrated skin
Ronda B from Pomona Ca
I love how hydrated this makes my skin feel. I have combination skin and it makes it feel even moisturized and not extra oily. Its very lightweight and does clog up my pores or anything. It also doesn't have a harsh or strong smell. I have sensitive skin and it didn't irritate it
Hydrate your face
Delia from Brooklyn
I received this product for free complementary. I put it on and it instantly hydrated my face. I have been using it for a couple of days and I feel like I see improvement with the amount of oil I have. I really like that it moisturizes my face but doesn't dry my face out.I love how it makes my skin feels and the texture of this product.
Karolina68 from San Diego, CA
It's great as a serum but not as a moisturizer alone. The Belif True Cream - Aqua Bomb is a winner for me over the Hungarian Water Essence if you are looking to choose between the two. They're both quite nice and refreshing during the summer months as they're light and go on smoothly on your face. I used the Belif True Cream on my hands while they were VERY dry and it improved the dryness almost immediately after the first use! Overall great product!
Brendalix13 from Thousand Oaks, CA
I absolutely loved this product! It hydrated and makes your skin glow even after a hot sunny day at the beach! It's a lightweight formula and refreshing to put on.
Light weight. Very refreshing
Violet from Whittier
It absorbs into the skin so fast and leave no stick residue. I use it first because I know it won't leave a sticky feel when I add serum.
Cindy from Los Angeles
This is light, refreshing and absorbs so well into my skin! It quickly moisturizes my skin, which is much needed during this summer heat
