Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's a strong scent. It's very herbal just like Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb. It smells like mint to me. I'm not a huge fan, but I got so used to the smell that I don't notice anymore. Plus, it only lasts for a couple of seconds. Secondly, the consistency is on the thin side. It's very light-weight and it sinks into the skin quickly. The big difference between this Moisturizing Bomb and Aqua Bomb is the texture. Aqua Bomb is gel-like, whereas, Moisturizing Bomb is a cream. With that said, they work the same to me. They are both light and hydrates the skin. The main difference or at least that's what the brand says, Moisturizing Bomb is more hydrating since it's targeted for normal to dry skin individuals. Aqua Bomb is for normal to oily skin individuals. I do agree it's a little bit more hydrating than Aqua Bomb but not by that much. Since it's summer, my skin doesn't need that much moisture compared to the winter weather. I definitely cannot see either of them hydrating me during the winter. I would need a thicker cream than these. Lastly and with that said, my skin feels soft and smooth. I don't see any dry patches and my skin looks alert.
* Scent last for couple of seconds.
* Thin, light-weight consistency.
* Whipped cream texture.
* Spreads easily.
* Sinks into the skin quickly.
* Leaves a nice, smooth texture.
* Good for all skin types.
* Smells like mint.
* Will not hydrate dry skin during the dry, winter weather.
Would repurchase: Maybe.
