When it comes to skincare, what’s inside matters way more than a fancy brand name — and high prices oftentimes don’t guarantee the best-quality formulas you can find, anyway. Amazon has a collection of skincare by top-rated brand Belei that’s made with high percentages of the active ingredients that give you results you’d expect from much more expensive products — and almost everything is under $30, and up to 46 percent off, right now.

Made without all the bad stuff — fragrances, which can cause allergic reactions when used consistently over time; sulfates, which can be irritating and clog pores; parabens, which can increase cellular level damage caused by UV exposure; and phthalates, which are banned from cosmetics in the European Union for their links to endocrine disruption and developmental and reproductive toxicity — Belei formulas are as gentle as they come. And reviewers rave about how transformative the products are.
“I used to own a salon spa and I am a product junkie. We carried various skin care lines, most of them retailing for over $100. Not one of those lines compared to Amazon's new Belei line,” says a five-star reviewer. “I ordered two products to try and in two weeks my skin is looking better than it has in years. The tone is much more even and my skin much brighter.” Keep scrolling for the products that reviewers can’t get enough of, at prices that can’t be beat.
Formulated with niacinamide, an of-the-moment ingredient shown to minimize overall redness and reduce the appearance of scarring, blemishes and other dark spots, this hero product will improve your skin tone for skin that glows without foundation. The brand recommends using this product at night after cleansing and before moisturizing, and during the day followed by sunscreen, as the active ingredient can increase your sensitivity to the sun.
“I have been using this product to remove a few sun spots I've gained over the years. To my shock it is actually working,” writes a happy shopper. “My complexion is evening out and the dark spots are softening and fading out. My skin has a more youthful look.”

Winter skin begging for an extra dose of moisture? Belei has you covered. Created using hyaluronic acid and glycerin, which attract water to plump up your skin, shea butter and squalene for their intensely hydrating properties, and aloe to soothe any inflammation caused by your dryness, this product does it all.
“When I first pumped this into my hand, I thought buying it was a mistake, because it's so light, but I loved how it felt when I applied it to my face. But I haven't wanted or needed to use ANY other moisturizers since I got this. It really seems to defy physics with how light, yet hydrating and long-lasting it is. I hesitate to write this next part, because it seems over the top and might make me seem less credible, but ever since I started using this moisturizer, I've been getting compliments from EVERYONE about how great my skin is,” says a rave reviewer with extra dry skin.

This hydrating serum gives you a youthful, lit from within glow. Thanks to vitamin C, you’ll see reduced dark spots and hyperpigmentation, more even skin tone, and less dullness. It also diminishes fine lines and wrinkles over time and increases the effectiveness of your sunscreen if used during the day. Hyaluronic acid holds water to boost your skin’s elasticity. If you use a retinol product at night, you should only use vitamin C products during the day because the ingredients can interact, making them both less effective and causing irritation.
“Being an Amazon junky, I had to try this. I have combination skin and recently have had a lot of dry patches. I've used this for two nights and my skin feels fantastic. This serum absorbed quickly, is almost matte like, and my face feels very smooth,” writes a reviewer.

Need a hydrating boost without the weight of a thick moisturizer? Hyaluronic acid is the answer to your prayers. Retaining moisture all day and reducing the appearance of fine lines, this miracle ingredient dries completely on the face but keeps your winter skin feeling smooth and hydrated.
“I am simply in awe of this product. I have tried many many hydro-formulas from different brands, upscale Paris treatments to K-Beauty, and this is the keeper for me,” says a skincare lover. “Because my skin is hyper allergic to cream and makeup, at times it seems to be allergic to simply air, I was very cautious about trying this at first, but decided why not. It has been a week, and my skin has never looked better, fully hydrated and not a blemish, and I even get compliments without any makeup what so ever!”
