I was contacted by the lovely people at b.liv skin to try out their deep impact | deep pores massage & cleansing emulsion and of course I accepted! The packaging stood out to me as it looks so cute with the rounded led!
I also had never heard of the brand. And after doing a little bit of research I found that this product has loads of natural ingredients. For example, tea tree oil and jojoba beads, which I’ve heard are really wonderful for your skin!
Another reason why I was excited to talk about this product is that they don’t test on animals. That’s something I’m trying to support more and more!
This cleanser is usually $25 on their site but it’s on offer now for $17,50. So if you want to try it out now would be the time!
You’re supposed to use it 2-3 times a week if you have normal or oily skin or 1-2 times a week for combination, dry or sensitive skin. So I got this in the mail a couple of weeks ago and decided to share with you my thoughts!
I’ve already mentioned how cute I think the packaging is. The rounded cap is such a small detail but makes it 100x prettier!
My first thought when actually putting this on my face was that it felt so soft on my skin! I applied only a little bit on my fingertips and when massaging, it feels like a cream. I don’t think I’ve ever used anything so smooth!!
The jojoba beads are very gentle too, so I feel like this would be the perfect exfoliator for sensitive skin. It doesn’t scratch your skin like some other exfoliating cleansers. But it really did a great job of leaving my skin smooth and exfoliated.
It feels quite runny, which I’ve found really helps with the amount of product you need. I have thicker cleansers and I have to use loads more product to actually cover my whole face!
You should massage it into your skin until the jojoba beads dissolve, which takes a bit. But on the other hand, it helps know for how long you have to massage it in.
It has a pleasant, clean, scent which is not too strong. I know some people mind strong scents even though I’m not one of them.
As far as results in my skin, I don’t think it’s doing much to control how oily my skin gets. I have products that make my skin feel very clean, it almost feels dry. This one doesn’t do that, it does make my skin feel very clean, just not 100% oil free.
The one thing that I’ve really noticed after using this product, is that it makes my pores look so much smaller! I don’t know how it does it, but I love it!
I’ll have to keep using this and let you know if it also minimized my pores with time but I did notice that right after using it.
One of my biggest issues is how big my pores can get, it’s disgusting! So I’m crossing my fingers hoping that this will help me keep my pores under control in the long run!
I’m glad I could find out about b.liv and I’ll let you know if/when I try anything else from them!
Also, let me know if you have tried their products and what your thoughts are either in the comments below or you can always tweet me, I love to chat with you all!
