If you're a beauty lover that enjoys trying new skincare but hates paying for shipping, Amazon's latest venture is a dream come true. The online retailer recently released a line called Belei that has twelve products with skincare essentials like cleansing wipes, serums, masks, and moisturizers. Each packed with powerhouse ingredients like with retinol, vitamin C, squalane, and glycerin — and all for under $40.


Kara Trousdale, Head of Beauty for Private Brands at Amazon, said in a press release, "Our goal is to help customers spend less time and money searching for the right skin-care solutions."

We can all benefit from reclaiming our time and money by researching products that give us the results we crave while fitting into our budgets. One more thing that makes this line worth trying other than being free of ingredients like parabens, phthalates, sulfates — is its satisfaction guarantee, that says, "If you aren't satisfied, we'll refund you for any reason within a year of purchase."

If you're curious about what the line has to offer, check out a few items I'm looking forward to trying below.

Meet Belei:

Belei Vitamin C + Hyaluronic Acid Serum

Vitamin C is a must as it protects skin from pollutants. With vitamin C and hyaluronic acid as the key ingredients, your skin will be protected, brightened, and moisturized.

Belei Oil-Free Micellar Facial Cleansing Wipes

I always sleep with a pack of cleansing wipes on my nightstand, just in case I get the urge to "take a nap" before bed to end up falling asleep until the next morning. These alcohol-free wipes come in a set of two (25 wipes in each pack), which I think is budget-friendly. Not to mention with the help of micellar water, they lift off dirt, makeup, and oil without stripping the skin of its moisture.

Belei Charcoal Balancing Mask

A good mask is essential to any beauty routine, and this one is made with charcoal, which helps absorb excess oil to keep those pesky breakouts away and hyaluronic acid that helps skin retain moisture.

Belei Dark Spot Solution Serum

I am curious about this serum since I, like many women of color, have hyperpigmentation marks left by pimples. Formulated with niacinamide (which helps even skin tone), this just might be a product that helps me leave those marks behind.

Loaded with 5.5% Benzoyl Peroxide, this spot treatment will zap a pimple in no time. Goodbye period pimples!

Finding the right daily sunscreen option can be tricky, especially if you are prone to breakouts. But Belei claims this moisturizer is a good match for those of us with oily skin.

Belei Triple-Peptide Eye Cream

As I get older, I'm starting to think about adding an eye cream to my routine to combat the puffiness under my eyes in the mornings. This eye cream has two of the line's go-to ingredients: hyaluronic acid, and caffeine. For $22, I'd be willing to give this cream a shot.

Belei Retinol Refining Moisturizer

I don't go to sleep without moisturizing my skin with a retinol-based product since vitamin A keeps the wrinkles and pimples away. I'm always on the hunt for a new one to try. The ingredients in this moisturizer are a win for me because they lead with hyaluronic acid and squalane, which keeps the vitamin A from causing dryness.

With the launch of twelve products, I think we can all find something to add to our ever-growing skincare trove. Have you tried Belei yet? Let us know in the comments down below!

As life would have it, as I'm starting this piece, Kelis' music video for "Bossy" is playing on the tube. Something that I've always liked about Kelis, as an artist, is she's gonna do whatever she wants to do. We don't have to get it, so long as she does. If we like it, that's merely a bonus. Yeah, Kelis would be the opposite of the kinds of folks we're gonna talk about today. She appears to be very anti-self-critical. And that's beautiful.
