i b.liv i can have good skin

Baby used to tell me that he doesn’t like me to put on makeup, he said, I look pretty enough without it. Well, that’s when I have skin which is this good. Basically, flawless.

Sadly, my skin condition from good, it turns bad, & then, worse. All thanks to my stressful-not-so-healthy lifestyle these days. I can barely live without makeup now, FML. Baby too, no longer stop me from putting on makeup. Ugh, I must have look damm bad without it. T.T

The only consolation is…
i CAN still look good….

with make up + strong flash+”meituxiuxiu”…
img_0324

Without those, I look like this:

extremely dry & dull skin, acnes, blackheads, whiteheads, uneven skin tone…etc.
7

nah, close closed up.
look at the nasty rough and spotty skin! *closedeyes
8

If you think that’s horrible, not yet. wait till you see this:
over dried nose full of blackheads.

that’s what we call a strawberry nose. Ern, yea.
I have been squeezing it so often till the pores are so visible. Ugh.
9

bad enough?
at least, I bet you people never expect my skin can be that bad huh?

It could have been worst, because makeups make my skin worse. I know couldn’t afford to leave it “just like that”. Hello, I am just 19, and I don’t want to apply makeup 24/7 for the rest of my life. & so, I started searching all over for products that could overcome all these problems.

until one day, I got a call from Nuffnang, telling me that I am assigned to do a review for b.liv by cellnique skin care. & they actually asked me bout my skin condition, I told them the main problems of my skin now (extremely dry & dull skin, acnes, blackheads & whiteheads). My skin type: combination-dry skin.

Just few days after that, I received a beautiful packed parcel by them.
10

I was dead eager to try out the products probably because I was real sick with my bad skin.

p.s. – I especially love the Chinese name of these products… it’s so convincing, you see?

#STEP 1 DRENCH ME moisturizing cleansing gel
1

official product description:
This ultra-silky weightless gel cleanser frees your face from impurities, while ensuring your skin’s much needed moisture never flees. Seaweed, Aloe Vera and Green Tea extracts – a robust combination in a hydrating cleanser that ensures your skin stays supple and moist. Together with antioxidant properties, Drench Me keeps aging signs at bay.

15

1. Use Drench Me daily, morning and night.
2. Wet your face.
3. Pump 1 to 2 pea-sized drops of Drench Me onto your wet palm and lather with water.
4. Apply over your face and neck in up and outwards circular motions.
5. Rinse well with plenty of water.

My honest verdict:
my previous cleansers are always either unable to clean my face thoroughly or it almost peels off my skin leaving it terribly dry. I like DRENCH ME moisturizing cleansing gel pretty much because I am really surprise that my morning oils can be remove so gently with such small amount of it, leaving it squeaky clean yet retaining its moisture. So yea, I really do like it a lot because it makes my face feel so clean and refreshing! The price of this product is about the price of the one I am using now (L brand). I guess it’s time for a change, I am certainly sure I will purchase this again. I really love this heaps! Shooo awesome!

#STEP 2 OFF WITH THOSE HEADS blackheads sebum gel
2

official product description:
Say goodbye to painful squeezing! This light cooling gel promises to remove stubborn blackheads and whiteheads painlessly in just 14 days of application and stop them from appearing ever again. It keeps excessive oil secretion under control and skin irritation will never rule again.

17

1. Use Off With Those Heads daily, morning and night, after cleanser.
2. Pump 2 to 3 pea-size drops of Off with Those Heads onto your palm.
3. Apply on T-zone areas, or areas with blackheads and white heads.

My honest verdict:
To be honest, I was pretty skeptical at first, I was thinking how is it possible that this can “remove stubborn blackheads and whiteheads painlessly in just 14 days of application and stop them from appearing ever again”. & they have this money back guaranteed thing, within two weeks with receipt and leftover portion. With a doubtful heart, I tried it. & I am truly AMAZED that how I am able to spot the different after using for a few times! My mom was surprised and we are thinking of getting another bottle for my brother (his blackheads condition in 10 times worse than mine). However to have it completely off your face, it takes time. So, be patience. Well I think it works better for blackheads than for whiteheads, so yea, it really does live up its name, here you go, “off with those heads”.

Here goes the before and after. Amazing, no?
*ahhh, I did not edit those photos! That’s my exact skin condition.

#STEP 3 SUBMERGE ME moisturizing booster
3

official product description:
Thirsty? With the new “SKIN BIO-MIMIC” technology, Submerge Me offers deep moisture penetration to serve intensive and instant relief to parched skin as well as brightens dull complexions and calms skin irritations. Take our advice; it’s best to take the plunge with Submerge Me’s faithful mate – the ever popular Leach Me.
18

My honest verdict:
I was using another moisturizer before this, my awfully dehydrated face turns greasy/oily very fast and it get greasier and greasier for the whole day, but the beautician kept telling/psycho-ing me that this is normal because it’s trying to absorb it in. I feel like I got cheated now, because submerge me is not greasy/sticky. Okay, it’s a lil tad greasy at first, but after a minute or two, after it absorbed into my skin, it leaves my skin smooth. The thing that I love most bout this product is that it does not clog up my pores with excess oils and cause me to break out! As for the age preventing, hmmm, I have not see any effect yet. BUT, hmm, this is a lil pricey for me. If I got extra cash when it runs out, I will get it again.

nose area condition is way better than before, as in it is not that dry already.

a compare using the same photo, but focus at the side of the nose. & you’ll notice the difference.

#STEP 4 SHIELD ME moisturizing sunblock
4

official product description:
This light-weight moisturizing sunblock protects you from harmful UVA and UVB rays and repairs the exposed or damaged areas on your face. Easy to use, absolutely non-greasy, fast absorption and effective!

My honest verdict:
I had never like sunblock, what more when it’s apply on face. I hate the smells of the typical sunblock and detest how greasy it can be(always say not greasy/sticky but always end up as lies), ugh! But I have to review it whether I like it or not, so I really did try out SHIELD me. It has an SPF OF 25, which means it will be able to shield you from the harm UV rays from 250mins. The lower the SPF, the less greasy it would be. Furthermore, I think SPF 25 is more than enough. Oh, and did I mentioned that this would be probably the only face sun block that I would use. Just because not only it’s not sticky when it’s able to retain the moisture level of your skin, it smells pretty good too, it’s like some sort of light tropical blend scent. Me likey! However, I wouldn’t purchase it again after it runs out. Just, I am not that kind of sunblock person. But don’t get me wrong, I do like this product, just that with that price… when I have got cash I will rather spend it on DRENCH ME or OFF with those HEADS. It’s just that I would probably need those more than SHIELD ME. I think my girlfriend, shinyee will loves this though, and she has been telling me so often that how imp sunblock is and how much we need it, but I am stubborn just like that. Hmm.

#STEP 5 LEACH ME moisturizing mask
5

official product description:
A 3-in-1 hydrating mask, Leach Me moisturizes, prevents signs of aging and restores your healthy glow. Bursting with natural fruity ingredients, this masks acts fast in penetrating these nutrients into your skin. Your lines will refine, your dryness will vanish, and the mirror will reveal a beaming face once again!
Look at the amount of serum in it! It’s dripping when I took it out!

My honest verdict:
& again, I don’t have the habit of pampering myself with masks. I had tried my beautiful diary’s mask, and I got break out straight on the next day. That’s the source of my phobia for masks. I was quite scared when I try this mask, just so afraid that I will wake up with red dots all over the next day. But, nahhh, I got rid of the flaky skin instead. This is probably the most moisturizing product in its whole moisturizing range. I feel my skin is so moisture after putting on the mask, I don’t even need to apply moisturizer after that, left over serum on my face did the job! It left my skin real supple, but I haven’t noticed the brightening and age preventing effect yet. Guess, that takes time too. I am satisfied with LEACH me.

As a conclusion, I am quite pleased and satisfied with the entire product above. I did not compliment these products just because it’s an advert but because I genuinely like it a lot. The only drawback will be the price, like what I’ve mention; it’s definitely a lil pricey from a UNI student like me. But I really got addicted after trying it out, perhaps I shall work harder and save some money for my next restock when it runs out.
