Today Amazon announced the launch of Belei, its first skin care line. Each of the online retailer's debut skin care products was created for all skin types and serves as a solution to various skin concerns, such as acne, wrinkles, fine lines, oily skin, dry skin and more.
"We're dedicated to giving our customers high quality products at a value and we're always listening to what our customers have to say," said Kara Trousdale, head of beauty, health and wellness for private brands at Amazon. "We know that our customers are coming to Amazon looking for solutions to common skin care concerns. So, that was really the inspiration behind creating a brand that focuses on ingredients that have proven to be effective."
All of the products, including moisturizers, serums and face wipes, are free of parabens, fragrance, sulfates and phthalates. They are dermatologist-approved, not tested on animals and range in price from $9 to $40 — which is pretty affordable for quality skin care!
"We really wanted to take a very no-nonsense approach to the brand, just to make it very straightforward for our customers," Trousdale added. "We strive to give our customers beauty products they can believe in, and so that was the inspiration behind the brand: Belei is a combination of the words beauty and believe."
Here are some of the new Amazon skin care products that we're excited to try out.
