Review: Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask (Belif)

BONIIK Kbeauty Review Belif Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask

This product was sent to me for review purposes. I was not paid and affiliate links are not used in this post.

There are some brands out there that you hear about a lot but, somehow, never end up trying any of their products – whether it is because of the price or sometimes just because you never really have a chance to. For me, Belif falls into both of these categories. Although they are an independent brand, their price points can be a little bit expensive – not exorbitantly but just a little. In addition, I do have some of my favourite products, so I was never sure if I should be splurging a bit to test this out.

With my recent collaboration with BONIIK, I decided to pick up a tub of this Belif Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask to try out. I did go a little bit over budget (from the store credit they gave me) so I guess this product is partly gifted (hmm). Belif’s most famous product is the True Cream Aqua Bomb, which is their original cult favourite, but I chose to try out something different from the same range instead – the Sleeping Mask. I did try out a lot of other products from BONIIK too and chose this exact product (as well as the Hanyul Watery Calming Gel) because I loved the texture of it and how it felt on my skin.

And I have to say that I have no regrets. I had a really great time testing out this product so I can say immediately that this is going to be a positive review. This is a really great quality product that delivers on their claims so I would definitely recommend checking this out – although they are more expensive than an average mid-tier road shop brand (like Laneige), it is definitely worth it if you are wanting to splurge a bit!

This product is currently selling for AUD$69 and, if you’d like to get your hands on this product, then check out the BONIIK website. If you are a Sydney-sider like myself, you can also drop into their stores at Westfield Sydney or World Square (Sydney CBD). Remember that you can use my code online and offline for 15% off your purchase too – valid until the end of March – OHMYSTELLAR15

So, let’s get right into this review!

Diary: BONIIK – Your K-beauty Destination

BONIIK Sydney Kbeauty Shopping

This product was sent to me for review purposes. I was not paid for this post and I do not make any profits from the discount code advertised. Affiliate links are not used.

I first collaborated with BONIIK last year when they were a relatively new store in Australia, and wanted to introduce their brand to a bunch of us beauty bloggers. I’m really happy to say that I will be working with them again in the year of 2019 and, just before I left for Vietnam, I was invited to visit their new store at World Square (Sydney CBD) where I discussed with them my ambitions as a beauty content creator, my skin type and also got recommendations of new products to try out.

So, in this post, I’m going to be writing about the in-store experience for BONIIK. They have two stores in Sydney where you can visit yourself to talk with their store assistants for skin recommendations, or you can also shop them online at BONIIK.com

Best of all though, is that they’ve actually give me a discount code to share with everyone! Until the end of March, you can get 15% off all purchases at both their physical stores or online just by showing my code – OHMYSTELLAR15

So, lets get into this post! I can’t wait to show you all of the photos I took of their store because it’s actual eye candy to see all of these walls of glorious kbeauty.

Dear Santa: Christmas Wishlist (Althea)

Althea Angels Christmas Wishlist

This post is sponsored by Althea but all chosen products and opinions expressed are my own. Affiliate links are not used in this post.

So we are at a point where Christmas is really close now and I have yet to really put together a list of things I want – partly because I don’t receive Christmas presents anyway (I’m an adult apparently) and also because I generally buy myself things I want rather than waiting for others to spoil me.

That all being said, I was approached by Althea to put together a short list of 10 things that would be on my Christmas Wishlist and, especially since I have been a bit absent from the k-beauty scene lately, this wasn’t hard to put together at all! There have been a bunch of super exciting releases and holiday packs that I’d missed – and now that means I need to get them.

So, click on to check out everything on my Althea Christmas Wishlist and, if you want to check them out – definitely do so! They carry a great range and also have their own brand (from which I highly recommend their Petal Velvet Powder and Petal Velvet Sunaway)
