B.Liv Skincare *

Tuesday, 17 February 2015

A little while back I was very kindly sent some of the B.Liv skincare range to try out.
I absolutely love discovering new skincare products and seeing what they can do. I feel like skincare products are constantly evolving and progressing so it is exciting to come across something I have never had the chance to try before.
B.Liv specialise in skincare for young people in the hopes that good skin will raise their confidence and help them to believe in themselves!
I also find it very comforting to know that the products I have been sent have not been tested on animals - this is something I really try to stick to when buying beauty products.

I was sent the 'Spots Got Shot' blemish treatment serum. For someone like me, who is on a constant quest for clearer skin, this was a very exciting product to discover.
This treatment is designed to help calm skin irritations and sooth aggravated areas on the skin. It also soaks up excess sebum (dirt) to stop any further skin problems before they even happen.
I have really enjoyed this product and have genuinely found it to be one of the very few spot treatment products that actually do what they promise. I found that it reduces redness around any spots I had immediately and cleared up my spots within a day (or two for those deeper blemishes).
You really only need to apply a light amount and, happily, it doesn't dry out the skin as some spot treatments seem to do.
This retails at $25 for 15ml, so it is a little more costly than something I'd usually go for. But, now that I know how effective and quick working it is on my skin, I would be happy to spend this.

I also got to try out the 'Oil Leviate' oil control gel.
This mattifying gel is designed to prevent oily skin, while keeping it healthy and moisturised.
You just apply this after cleansing - no need to wash it off, and it keeps skin feeling soft and supple without being all shiny!
I was worried that this would make my skin feel dry and flaky but, somehow, it manages to stop oily skin without drying it out. Interestingly, it also helps to fade scars - so, if you have struggled with acne that has left some scarring on your skin then this is worth a try to fade them. Reviews on the B.Liv website certainly back this claim up, too.
I have really enjoyed this product. I don't have particularly oily skin but my chin does sometimes get a bit shiny and I certainly noticed after using this that it was perfectly balanced.It feels so light and makes my skin soft immediatley.
This product retails at $35.00 for 30ml

I was also sent 2x 'Sensetive Salvation' repair and rescue face mask and 2x 'Absolute Matte' face mask. Dan and I used these on Valentines day as a special treat and they were very different!

I tried out the 'Sensitive salvation' mask as my skin has been playing me up in this late stage of my pregnancy, so I thought it might help. The masks are Japanese silk sheets, which means you don't have to paint them on, you just put the sheet over your face and lie back. 
This mask is designed to repair, soothe and aid in cell regeneration. I had to leave this on for 20-30 minutes, however for the first 5 minutes I found it a little uncomfortable as I didn't realise you are supposed to peel the thin silk sheet off of a plastic backing which it is stuck to, so I felt a little smothered. Once I had realised and peeled them apart the silk sheet moulded to my skin much better and felt so breathable,
It may seem like a silly mistake to make, but there was nothing on the packet instructing you to peel the layers apart so we just assumed that was how it was done!

Dan used the 'Absolute matte' mask as he suffers from an oily t-zone. This mask is designed to help control oil and hydrate the skin. It also claims to lift dirt and sebum out of the skin and contains ingredients like Zinc sulfate and willow bark extract. This mask is to be left on for 15 minutes and any remaining product is then to be massaged into the skin for full benefits!

Although I'm not sure that my mask did much to improve my skin, it was very relaxing and soothing and it was nice to have a refreshing product on my face which I could lie back and enjoy! Dan said his mask was very refreshing and I actually haven't heard him complaining about having an oily forehead for a couple of days now - so it must have done something good to his skin!
These masks are $2.50 each or you can buy a set of 10 for £22.00 - this means you will get a full course of the treatment!

The B.Liv products come with a 2 week money back guarantee, so you can be sure that they really work, and, even if you find that you're (somehow) not satisfied, you won't have lost out on anything,
