I was pleasantly surprised when I received the cutest press kit in the mail, thanks to Dr. Belmeur. Dr. Belmeur is a new line of skincare created by THE FACE SHOP that uses mild, plant-based formulations. It has two lines, designed specifically for dry, sensitive skin, and oily, problematic skin. This is THE FACE SHOP’s cosmeceutical line, which combines the brand’s skincare experience with science and medicine. I received three products from the Dr. Belmeur brand to try from its Daily Repair Line – the Daily Repair Toner, the Daily Repair Moisturizer, and its best seller, the Daily Repair Ato Salt Cream.
The Dr. Belmeur Daily Repair Line was created to tacke dry, sensitive, and easily damaged skin. Daily Repair Foam Cleanser, Daily Repair Toner, and Daily Repair Moisturizer form the basic routine, which helps to strengthen the skin’s barrier to aid skin in generating a healthy, hydrated complexion. All of the products are made in Korea.
The Daily Repair Toner (C$28 for 200mL) is used on dry skin after cleansing. It provides moisture deep within the skin’s surface, and helps to relief sensitivity and dryness.
I really love this toner, it’s very hydrating and leaves my skin feeling soft, replenished, and plump. It has a light fragrance that’s actually pretty refreshing. I apply this on cleansed, dry skin with a cotton pad, and in addition to being hydrating on its own, I feel like it helps improve the absorption of the other products I use. I also find it to help reduce my sensitivity. For a mid to high end brand, the price point is also very reasonable for the size. Overall it’s a winner.
The Daily Repair Moisturizer (C$32 for 120mL) is a basic moisturizer that was created to calm sensitive skin, and also to serve as a barrier to protect skin damaged by external environmental aggressors. It contains natural oil ingredients derived from olive leaves. The first thing I noticed is that the value on this moisturizer is amazing. You essentially get 2.4x the volume of a normal moisturizer for a very affordable price. For a basic moisturizer, it’s pretty amazing.
While it feels really fluid and lightweight, the Daily Repair Moisturizer deeply hydrates my skin and also leaves it feeling soothed and less sensitive. My skin feels full of water, if that makes sense. In just a few short days, my skin is significantly less red. This is also a great basic moisturizer for men as they can use it after shaving to relieve razor burn. I’m surprising myself when I say that between this and the Belif Moisturizing Bomb, I actually prefer the Daily Repair Moisturizer because it does not feel so silicone-y.
The Daily Repair Ato Salt Cream (C$42 for 80mL) is one of the best-sellers in the Dr. Belmeur brand. It’s a face cream that was designed specifically for those suffering from atopic eczema. It cotnains 8% dead sea salt, providing deep skin moisture as well as itch relief. It has a gel-cream type texture that spreads easily, absorbs quickly, and leaves a protective barrier on the skin that isn’t greasy or heavy.
My boyfriend has eczema and very dry skin and he’s not the best at applying moisturizers on a daily basis, but this does help to provide temporary relief against discomfort. Normally his dry spots will flake and itch throughout the day, he says if he applies this cream regularly, it eradicates the flaking and also relieves the itching. He says he likes this even better than the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream for treating his eczema. Even though it is slightly on the pricier side compared to the Daily Repair Moisturizer, the value is still pretty incredible as most moisturizers come in 50, and at most 60mL sizes. This one comes in a 80mL size.
All three products have been really nice surprises in terms of how they’ve worked on my skin, and also the price for the value. Both my boyfriend and I can enjoy this line together, which is great for when we’re travelling and are short on suitcase space (or when we’re lazy haha). I would definitely recommend checking out the Dr. Belmeur line at THE FACE SHOP stores.
In addition to these three products in the Daily Repair line, there is also the Daily Repair Cleanser (C$17), the Daily Repair Soothing Gauze Sheet Mask (C$6), Daily Repair Cleansing Water (C$25), under skincare, as well as base makeup products Daily Repair Calamine Tone-up Cushion (C$29) and Daily Blemish Balm Cushion (C$29).
The second line under the Dr. Belmeur brand is for those with oily, congested, and acne-prone skin. The Clarifying Line contains a Clarifying Toner (C$28), Clarifying Moisturizer (C$32) and Clarifying Spot Calming Ampoule (C$35), which is a BHA spot treatment.
Dr. Belmeur will be available at THE FACE SHOP stores across Canada and online at THEFACESHOP.ca starting May 1, 2017.
