    Amazon Just Launched A Skincare Line Called Belei, And You're Gonna Want Everything

    "Everything is under $40? *buys everything*! β€” me, a broke, skincare lover

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    So, Amazon. You know it, right? It's probably your go-to for just about everything, and now it might just become your go-to for affordable skincare products!

    Meet Belei (a combination of two words) β€” the initial drop includes 12 products and everything is $40 or under, with the most expensive items being the serums.


    Their tagline is "We don't believe in beauty secrets, only beauty solutions."

    Everything is (and will always be) free of parabens, phthalates, and sulfates, dermatologist-tested, and *never* tested on animals. All of the packaging is 100% recyclable *and* made from post-consumer recycled materials. ✨They're also fragrance-free β€” though there's definitely a subtly medicinal smell from the raw ingredients, but nothing bothersome.

    What surprised me right off the bat is that they really thought through every skin type and skin concern to create a serum (three of 'em!) and moisturizer (also three of 'em!) with a specific customer in mind β€” because skincare varies so much from one person to another, that one-kind-fits-all simply doesn't exist.

    Now let's get into some of the products:

    Micellar Oil-Free Facial Cleansing Wipes, alcohol-free makeup removers that also lift away dirt and oil, so your pores feel clean and unclogged β€” every lazy girl's dream, when your nights run super late and your usual double cleanse just isn't in the forecast.


    Skin type/concern: All skin types!

    Price: $9 (for a pack of 25)

    Blemish Control Spot Treatment, a lightweight 5.5% Benzoyl Peroxide formula to fight blemishes and make them heal/disappear faster β€” because living your best life means leaving pimples behind. πŸ‘‹


    Skin type/concern: Acne-prone and oily skin (not recommended for very sensitive skin)

    Be sure to apply at the onset of any breakouts you have, and as always, sun protection is super important with active ingredients (so don't skimp!!).

    Price: $22

    Charcoal Balancing Mask, which harnesses the clarifying abilities of charcoal powder to absorb deep-set, excess oil and sweep away dirt and impurities, while aloe and hyaluronic acid ensure your skin is soothed and hydrated throughout β€” "we love a gorgeous masking moment," as JVN would probably say.


    Skin type/concern: Normal to oily, anyone who wants to reduce blemishes or the appearance of large pores

    Price: $18

    Ferulic Acid + Vitamins C and E Serum, a powerful antioxidant blend to tone, refine, brighten, and hydrate skin all at once β€” whew, this star really works overtime to do it all.


    Skin type/concern: All skin types (sensitive skin types can try using it every other day at first!), anyone who wants to address fine lines and wrinkles and uneven skin tone

    Price: $38

    Dark Spot Solution Serum, which contains niacinamide and plankton extract to promote an all-over even skin tone or help minimize the appearance of specific dark spots caused by those darn blemishes, SMH β€” skincare is a process, hunny.


    Skin type/concern: Blemish-prone skin, anyone who wants to address dark spots and uneven pigmentation caused by blemishes

    Price: $22

    Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid Serum, a blend of five specialized hyaluronic acids that helps retain moisture long-term, so your moisturizers and sleeping masks work even better.


    Skin type/concern: All skin types, but especially dry skin types

    Price: $40

    Oil-Free SPF 50 Face Moisturizer, fast-absorbing and non-greasy sun protection that won't irritate skin and cause blemishes.


    In my opinion, all moisturizer-sunscreen hybrids have an SPF of 30 β€” because anything less is totally insufficient and you'd be better off finding a separate sunscreen that'll actually pull its weight. I wear SPF 50 every day, so the fact that has the same amount is *chef's kiss*. And for me at least, it didn't leave a white cast!

    Skin type/concern: All skin types, including blemish-prone (though it might not be the most hydrating formula, so I applied an extra hydrating serum beforehand)

    Price: $22

    Bio-Complex Moisturizer, a silky, feels-barely-there moisturizer that locks in moisture all day or night with the help of hyaluronic acid, squalane (a personal fave of mine), and glycerin.


    I tried this on half of my face to compare it with my usual, also silky-like daytime moisturizer and see how it would wear under makeup, and I couldn't detectable a difference! It felt really comfortable upon application and definitely didn't irritate my skin or make my makeup pill.

    Skin type/concern: Dry and normal-to-dry skin types, anyone who wants crazy hydration

    Price: $35

    Triple-Peptide Eye Cream, a lightweight concoction of a tri-peptide blend, caffeine, shea butter, and hyaluronic acid to address firmness, fine lines, dark circles, and puffiness β€” your eight hours of sleep in a small tin, if you will.


    I will pretty much try any eye cream under the sun (hello, stress and erratic sleep schedule!) and I was surprised by how much I love the silky, whipped-like texture of this cream; it reminds me of dessert, which is fitting since it's the last step of my skincare routine. Despite my preference for eye gels, this cream absorbs really quickly and doesn't leave any residue, so it's a great option for day *and* night.

    Skin type/concern: All skin types!

    Price: $22

    According to their storefront page, they'll refund you for any reason within a year of purchase β€” so seriously, what do you have to lose? Shop the whole Belei line now!
