B•liv by Cellnique Review

Blackheads/Whiteheads? Huge pores? Dull skintone? Fine lines? You could probably use some of these products from B.liv by Cellnique! Here is my honest and unbiased review after almost 2 months of consistent use of their products. PS. I posted no makeup macro shots of my face/skin for those who want to know what I look like without all the makeup, lenses and wig :p

I know alot of you guys have been asking me to post about my skincare routine already. The reason why I never got around to it is because I keep changing products every month or so. By the time I'm ready to post about it, I am already using a different line :s I am very obsessive when it comes to skincare since I really believe that great skin is the most important foundation of beauty.

My skin concerns before starting this regimen were the blackheads/whiteheads around my nose area (I keep using pore strips and charcoal pack to minimize/remove them but they keep coming back!) and my pores are huge! (I want them smaller/less visible). I'm also a sucker for anti-aging products since I always believe prevention is better than cure. It is never to early to start a good anti-wrinkle regimen when you're in your twenties!

This is the regimen the B.liv people came up with for me! (eyecream, moisturizer etc. not included)

  1. Cleanse and tone.
  2. Apply 2-3 drops of Off with those heads at T-zone/problem areas.
  3. Moisturize and use sunblock.

  2. Apply 2-3 drops of Off with those heads at T-zone/problem areas.
  3. Apply 2-3 drops of Shrink and Tighten and gently massage until fully absorbed.
  4. Apply moisturizer.
  5. Once a week apply a thick layer of Glow and Shine evenly on face and neck. Leave for 5-10 mins and gently massage with wet hand for 5-10 seconds before rinsing well with lots of water.
  6. 2-3x a week. Use the Japan Silk Mask on face for 20-30 mins. Remove mask and gently massage excess serum into the skin.

I love these 3 mask sheets! They made my skin firmer, moisturized and improved my overall skintone. I use this at night and woke up to glowing skin the next day!

Off with those heads  (click on link for more info)

Off with those heads comes in a gel consistency that is absorbed pretty well into the skin .

Shrink and tighten +  (click on link for more info)

Shrink and tighten comes in a serum/oil form. It has a eucalyptus scent/feel on the skin. It may sting a little on freshly scrubbed skin.

Glow and shine comes in a milky white liquid form with tiny scrub particles. It dries up after a couple of minutes which is why you need to massage this on your skin with a wet hand after the time is up.
I was only able to use around 3 times before using up my 2 mini sample tubes. This is perfect for exfoliation and making my skin feel smoother and more supple.

Let the pictures do the talking!
After almost 2 months of consistent use (Macro shots so my pores are so obvious! click to enlarge)
You can see from the before photo that I have some disgusting black head/whitehead problem going on :p I usually use a charcoal nose pack/strip to take care of this but I decided to forego this before taking the shot so you can see the visible difference after a month+ of continued use of the b.liv products. My blackheads/whiteheads are nearly gone/not so obvious anymore. My pores look less pronounced (their size is still the same but they don't look as obvious)

My bare face close up! (sans makeup and moisturizer) Behold the amazing powers of Gyaru makeup :p (click to enlarge)  so you can see my pores and all! Shooting in Macro mode is quite a humbling experience :p  I know... my roots :))) This was taken weeks before I had my root/color retouch. I'll make a post about my new haircolor soon! I went for a darker ash color this time :)

Overall Take
My blackheads/whiteheads were reduced significantly. I've also noticed that my skin became smoother, brighter and less prone to period breakouts/tiny bumps. After 2 mos. of consistent use, I can definitely say that these products lived up to its promise! 

I highly recommend these products for people with the same skin issues as me.

Hope this helps! xx
