Review: belif Anti-Aging Herb Essence

Hello, lovelies~ I've told you about the new counter belif has in Plaza Senayan. I bought an essence and a BB cream from them to try out. I've bought this a while ago, but I want to make sure that I gave it enough time before I do a full review on them. To start, I'm going to review the essence. 

The product came in a milky white bottle with a twist off black cap that kinda looks like a gentleman's hat. You know, the one they took off in front of the ladies. Well, you know what I'm talking about. Hopefully. In case you don't get my ramblings, here is how the hat looks like.

There is two layers to this product, kinda like the dual phase makeup remover that you need to shake before each use. The product itself is a watery-like texture that is white colored, kinda like milk.

The front of the product states what active ingredients they have and whether or not they are free from certain problematic ingredients, such as mineral oil, alcohol, colorants, fragrance, etc.

Moving on to the scent, this essence has a strong herbal scent, kinda like leaves being mashed together to form a paste. Remember doing that when you're a child and pretending it's for an ailment to an uncurable disease?  Or is it just me? Anyway, I am quite annoyed at the scent as I continued using it.

The ingredients listed in them are a lot as you can see in the picture below. It contains all kinds of extracts that promises to slow down the aging process and giving brighter complexion. It still has silicone derivatives, so those having sensitivity towards them please be aware.

I have been using this essence for a month, give or take. I use it the same way I use my Hada Labo lotion, patting it evenly all over my face. It has a dewy finish after it has all been absorbed, making my face feel slightly sticky. Sadly, I didn't feel any difference at all after a month of usage.  As for anti aging, I haven't been able to tell the difference of fine lines on my forehead. Thankfully, it didn't break me out. *phew*

Overall, I didn't really like this essence as the scent is too strong for my nose and it didn't really do anything for my skin. The price is steep, retailing at Rp 349,000 for a 75 ml product. You can buy this at belif counter that are usually found at SOGO department stores.  I'd say this essence would suit those with normal to dry skin as it is quite moisturizing. However, for those with oilier skin type, please be well aware of this essence as it may give an oilier look because of the moisturizing factor. As for me, this is a product that I won't be missing in my life.
