Review : Glow and Shine and others by B.liv

1Remember the winter melon & pear package that I got last week...which one of the readers suspect it's skincare made from winter melon... Haha ! Yes those are skincares but not made from wintermelon lol!!!

So did some of you guess it right ???

It is B.liv by Cellnique

p/s:Re-branding makes B.liv looks very trendy and fun !

Why is it renamed as B.liv ?

Pronounce as ‘believe‘, b•liv has the impeccable pedigree of being the creation of Asia‘s most effective paramedical salon brand -- Cellnique Paramedical, a brand that has emerged as one of the problematic skin expert amongst the industry over the past 12 years. Read more on

Originally named "Cellnique Pro-Series", the brand was renamed to better reflect its objective of catering for confident, stylish, dynamic and on-the-go youth with a skincare regimen made specifically for them.

I received 1 full size product and 3 sample size products .

The products details are

B.liv Glow & Shine (Skin Smoothing Mask) (50ml)
Main functions : Exfoliating, Pores reducing and brightening
Price : USD 25 for a full size of 50ml
Recommended for sensitive skin with large pores

Information from the website

Glow & Shine deeply exfoliates damaged, scarred or unhealthy skin, to reveal the smooth, flawless complexion lurking within. It also lightens and brightens the dull and uneven-toned face, to make one's inner glow and shine rise to the surface.

The description on the tube : The deep cleansing mask that exfoliates and instantly rejuvenates

Let me see whether it performs what it says !

Instruction on how to use

It is rich and thick in texture, with tiny beads inside...

I applied a rich layer of the mask ( as per the instruction) and waited it for around 10 mins. And then I put some water and massage gently in circular motion (and I can feel the beads is exfoliating cleaning my pores) before washing it off. And I like the smell of the mask!

My verdict : Definitely I can feel and see my skin is smoother as my pores is slightly smaller , skin texture softer and bouncier immediately after washing off. My skin tone become slightly fairer. I feel my face refresh after that ! I will continue using it and blogged about the result :)

My Rating

2) B.liv Squeaky Clean (Beads Cleansing Gel) (5ml)

Main functions : Cleanse, Exfoliate and oil control
Price : USD 25 for a full size of 120ml
Recommended for person with blackheads & oily skin

Information from the website

Squeaky Clean flushes out impurities and softens your skin, to make blackheads and whitehead removal simple and without complication. It unclogs your pores and helps oil halt its spread, and lets you say ‘hi!’ to clean pores and ‘bye!’ to those heads

I made my face wet before applying 2 to 3 pea size of Squeaky Clean onto my wet palm and lather with water drops. Then gently massage on my face using upward circular motions . The Squeaky Clean has tiny bead as well, it suppose to clean, exfoliate and oil control.

My verdict : Although I can feel my face is cleaner after application however I do not have much blackheads and have dry skin, this product might not be suitable for me as I feel my skin is tight & drying after application. And therefore moisturizer must be applied. This product might works better for people with oily skin or blackhead.

My Rating

3) B.liv Quench Me (Moisturizing Gel) (3ml)
Main functions : Moisture replenishing, Retaining and cell revitalizing
Recommended for person with dry skin

Information from the website

Quench Me lavishes your face with moisturizing and cell revitalizing nutrients, which pamper your skin and supplies it with much-needed invigoration. The gel moisture-retaining properties keep hydration locked-in, and restores vitality to your tired skin - leaving you a supple, recharged and healthy complexion.

As per the instruction in the website, after cleaning the face with cleanser, I take 2 to 3 pea sized drops of Quench Me and aplied on to my face

My verdict : The moisturizer is in gel type and it smells like mint. It immediately absorb nicely into my skin upon application. It is very light in texture and do not make my face feeling greasy as it Quench into my skin :) And my skin felt like I has not put anything on.

My Rating

4) B.liv Got Me Covered (Sunblock + Foundation) (5ml)
Main functions : Oil Control, Foundation and Sunblock SPH 35
Price :
USD 32 for a full size of 50ml

It also accelerates your skin’s cell renewal process, to keep you looking pure and fresh, and keeps a tight rein on your oil production, to ensure blackheads and whiteheads are forever on the run.

My verdict : I applied this before my makeup and after my moisturizer. I simply like the texture which is in liquid form. And when I poured it out and apply on my face B.liv Got me Covered turn into powder form and quickly absorbed into my skin. As this is not only a sunblock but a foundation as well, it gave light coverage to hide my blemish. And since more it is 2 functions in 1 bottle (sunblock and foundation) will definitely makes my skincare routine a little bit less tedious ....or else I have like 8 steps to applied before start putting my foundation!!!
