Can’t the script change for 2017 the “literally” and the “obsessed” are kinda over done

ANoelCollection says:

Im super late to this video but I noticed that you said The True Cream Aqua Bomb only has 4 ingredients. It has well over 30, with the first 5 ingredients (the first 5 are the ingredients that will impact your skin the most) are water, dipropylene glycol, Methl Trimethicone, and glycerin. denatured alcohol comes right after that. Most of the actives are way too low in the ingredients list to have much of an effect on your skin.

Its still an effective moisturizer because of the silicones and humectants in the first 5. It just isn’t worth the price point, small amount of product, or the chunky packaging. You’re paying for bells and whistles with that one.

Ruj B says:

can you recommend a good spf cream, i tend to breakout more using it. and i have never seen any good recommendations especially after you video about the ingredients in spf. please do a video about this

Dom Baldock says:

The bloopers!!! Oh you nearly had me in tears!
Great vid, just subscribed, looking to hours of beauty goodness 😀

Mona Moore says:

you’re so beautiful

Unpopular Views says:

$120 for that little tiny thing with those regular ingredients ? Seriously you’re better off just buying the different ingredients and making it yourself, that’s way too much for that tiny cream.

Tin Win says:

Your face not nature anymore.

Melody Lam says:

You do realize that there are more than 4 ingredients in Belif Aqua Bomb, right? The 4 you were talking about are its active ingredients. Those 4 alone can’t turn Aqua Bomb into a gel cream.

thehonestbeautyreview says:

If you love The belief cream, you’d love Clinique’s moisture surge! It so moisturizing and sinks right into the skin!

Irene Talking Dove Burke says:

drugstore please!

Priscilla Nieto says:

Not liking your intro. You’re acting like you need to apologize for looking like you only buy high end skincare. So what if you do? As long as you work hard for what you have you should feel free to invest in whatever you want. My cleanser, acne treatment and day time moisturizer is all drugstore from Clean and Clear. My nighttime moisturizer is from First Aid Beauty and my neck and eye treatment are both from Tarte. I will never feel the need to apologize for the higher end skincare products that I do own. Other people should be happy that you were able to afford the things you want.

Emily Coppa says:

Hi i know this video is old, but Marlena the True Aqua Bomb from Belif has over 30 ingredients in it! I’m not sure why you only saw a few but this is not the case lol! there are tons of plant extracts and herbal extracts in this product, the ingredients list is very very long

Hollie David says:

Thank you for your information. I’m an avid fan of all things MG. Just a few things I’d like to mention…I’m 50 and this is a current photo of me on my profile. I use the DHC line from Japan and it’s olive oil based and just lovely. I also mix it up and use Obaji when I’m transitioning seasons, as I use different products for the temperature and weather changes. Vitamin C oil and Rosehip oil are just excellent for skin and in combination with Hyaluronic acid which holds in water, and your skin will look amazing. One last thing, whether you’re fair or dark skinned, you need at least a 40spf. Thanks for your continued education and congrats on your recent acknowledgement by business news!!!

atomickiwi says:

Loved this video. Obsessed with skincare products!

Monica Alkintor says:

New Subbie, Love your background, do you have dry skin?

LaVerne Gilbert says:

Thanks for sharing, have you tried Paula’s choice? It is the best skincare I’ve ever used, I’ve seen great results. if you have not tried check it out, you will not regret it. The owner and creater is in her late 60s and does not have any wrinkles, I’m 55 and no wrinkler either. By the way love your cosmetics they are the best.

Nlly Cmchraw says:

I love ❤️ you Marlena, you are so unique, beautiful, smart, business woman!

anna t says:

ellen oganesyan says:

Danijela Pisonic says:

Yes Elemis Pro Collagen Marine cream is probably the best moistureizer in the world,it has a cult status in the beauty industry,Elemis is well known here in Europe,much more than in America ☺

jessica phillips says:

36?! Omg girl you look AMAZING! I will deff be taking your advice on these skin care products if they allow me to look like you when I’m 36! You go girl!

Roy Emanuel Racine says:

Love the bloopers….when One can make fun at oneself …! Awesome

LA Looks says:

Belif Aqua Bomb may list 4 ingredients at the ‘top’ of the list and explain their purpose and function, however the Sephora ingredient list of this product goes on and on for miles….. with Denatured Alcohol being the 5th ingredient. There are OVER 50 ingredients in this product. I wish there was a way (quickly) to know what function they all served! It is so hard to know exactly what products are TRULY the most effective, with the least amount of fillers and other potentially irritating / destructive ingredients!! Thank you Marlena – I know I am watching this in 2017, but thought I’d do a bit more research!!! 🙂

SugarNSpice46 says:

Please do a skin care product video on drugstore products!!! Love this one but very curious to know what you pick at the drugstore. Thank you!

Tanya Nixonn says:

Would love to see a drugstore video of skin care products that work. Thx. Love your video’s.

F.M. Designz says:

QVC also sells Elemis.

Leslie Johnson says:

Yes, please do skincare routine and drug store skincare videos.

Charline Robinson says:

*I’ve purchased this >> **https://twitter.com/Rebecca50342708/status/875389812106067968** several occasions and my 60-year old skin appears gorgeous. In a few reviews that I’ve read, people have told that this is not the same as the more costly this product  that’s it is own web site. I do not know maybe not or whether it’s it is the same but I do know that my skin is firmer and it seems significantly better when this is used by me. I am very happy with this product.*

reesee W says:

Uhmmmmm….we would love the skin care routine video if it has changed at all…thank you!

Allison Rain says:

I love your shadows. Just tried them!! They remind me of a brand I won’t say but sold in Sephora. Better than most brands out there. Up there with MAC.

Hayley Smith says:

Anna-Faith Smith says:

Yes! I’m so happy you did this video!!! I would love to see the skin care routine and the drug store products videos!!!! I love to see skincare videos!!!!!

Katherin Orozco says:

Kelly Sykes says:
