Now, before I go into the nitty-gritty of B.Liv products, let me introduce to you my skin type :) I have a combination skin, my problem areas are my dry nose and cheeks and oily chin and forehead region. I have blackheads and whiteheads on my nose and cheeks that needs a weekly extraction with my trusty Biore pore strips. I do have crater-like pores on my cheeks and feel the urge to exfoliate my skin every other day to get rid of any dirt, makeup and old sebum stuffed inside them. Stress, especially during my exams & PMS always takes a toll on my skin so I am always on a hunt for good skin care products that claim to target the problem areas of combination skin and yet be gentle enough on the skin, which is why when I was contacted by Selina from Cellnique to try a few b.liv products that are formulated to target the problems areas of my skin, I couldn't resist... I was sent four full size B.Liv products-- Squeaky Clean, Off With Those Heads, Shrink And Tighten & Kick Sports Out (hehe don't you love the names of these products!) I had also received along with the full sized products, a sample of Glow and Shine and a cute looking recycle bag for Earth Day. If you make a purchase over $60 USD and choose not to get packaging boxes for your products, they will send you the Recycle bag. I've been using the b.liv products for the past 2 weeks on my problem areas twice a day and have found these to be working fine on my skin type and it had really made my skin to behave well during the exams stress, So Far So good!

Squeaky Clean (USD 25 for 130ml): This is a light weight, green, non sticky liquid cleanser with microfine beads (synthetic beads) for gentle exfoliation. It contains Peppermint oil, Aloe Vera Extract and micro beads as its key ingredients and smells like peppermint and aloe which I really like! In my experience, this cleanser is a must-have for every skin type! It makes my skin clean, refreshed and rejuvenated and GENTLY exfoliates it to get rid of the dirt, dead skin cells and unclogged pores. It removes the excess oil without stripping out the moisture or drying out my skin. This cleanser is truely a joy to use in the morning! It makes my skin glow and feel soft. The cleanser alone would not remove blackheads and whiteheads but will make the extraction effortless.
If any of you intend to try out the b.liv products and want to begin with buying just one product from this range, I would recommend you to get the Squeaky Clean to try first!
Shrink & Tighten (USD 49 for 30ml): Again, a non-sticky, easy-gliding serum with its main ingredients being the Collagen, Vitamin B3 & C, and Oleanolic Acid. It comes in a bottle with a pump dispenser and claims to make large pores disappear. It smells of witch hazel and menthol, while on the skin, it feels cool and I can feel a tingling sensation for about a minute. I've seen a LITTLE BIT of shrinkage in my large pores after two weeks near my nose where my cheeks begin, not exactly noticeable on camera but is visible from a closer look. Overall, I am QUITE impressed with its performance within 2 weeks time & will continue using this serum to see how long it takes for my craters(pores) to shrink them to an acceptable level.
Kick Spots Out (USD 32 for 6pcs): It is a thin transparent film-like mask, cut in a shape of face and claims to clarify blemish-prone skin, eliminate irritation-causing factors and control oil-production to prevent shiny skin while providing ample moisturization to the skin.
Glow and Shine (USD 25 for 50ml): I received this in a sample size bottle. It is a thick white mask that has little exfoliating beads and is formulated for sensitive skin with large pores. You layer it on your cleansed face and leave on for 5-10 minutes and then massage it off. I like this product for its multi-functionality, it’s a mask and an exfoliator all in one. The mask feels really soft on my skin, smells amazing & made my skin tighter and brighter!
Overall, I find the b.liv range from Cellnique well worth a try and my favorites from this range being the Squeaky Clean and off With those Heads :)
