bliv by Cellnique Glow and Shine Review

"Disclosure: This product was sent to me for review purposes in exchange for my honest opinion after trying it out. " Complete disclosure here
Hello, lovelies~ Weekend is finally here and it is time to pamper myself with a lots of TV series, a cup of jasmine green tea and face masks. This weekend, I have chosen to pamper myself with one from bliv by Cellnique called Glow and Shine.

The concept behind this mask is to give dull face a glow and shine after using it. Not only that, the mask also helps to cleanse, polish and moisturize the skin all at the same time. I’ve been using it for two weeks and here is what I think of it. Let’s start the review!
The face mask comes in a separate box with a plastic sleeve that is easily removable by sliding it upwards or downwards. The box itself is a simple silver with purple stripe on the bottom part. Quite sophisticated to my taste. ^_^

Inside the box, is a squeeze tube with a twist off cap that has the same color theme as the box, which is white with purple stripe on the bottom. Personally, I like a flip top cap because I often drop the cap if it weren’t attached to the tube. That’s just me, though. ^_^

Moving on to the ingredients, this mask combines the hydrating properties of Glycerin with the absorbent quality of Kaolin. It also contains Papaya Enzyme which helps to brighten the skin. It still contains fragrance, but it is the second last ingredient on the list, so that shouldn’t pose as a problem. For preservatives, it uses propylparaben and diazolidinyl urea.

This mask has a combination of fruity and fresh scents, so I feel relaxed when I use this mask on my face. Once squeezed out of the tube, it has a thick consistency, almost like a tooth paste consistency. However, unlike tooth paste, this mask can be easily spread all over the face. It also has microbeads in it!

Applying the mask is as easy as applying a regular moisturizer on the face. All I did was squeeze about a finger length amount of mask on the back of my hand and spread it evenly all over my face. After than I wait for 20 minutes before rinsing off the mask.

What is unique about this mask is the presence of microbeads inside the mask. When I proceed to rinse off the mask, I can exfoliate at the same time, thereby removing any dead skin cells that are sitting on my face. This will help to brighten my complexion since the dead skin cells are removed, leaving a bright face.
So, after 20 minutes of using it, it’s time to rinse off. I like sensation of exfoliating whilst rinsing it off. I feel my blood circulation to the face is improved with those microbeads. I feel that the excess oil on my face is removed, but my face is still left with the moisture, so it doesn’t feel extra tight like any other mask that contain kaolin. My overall complexion looks brighter and no longer dull, thanks to this mask.
Before After
Overall, I enjoyed using this unique mask that has microbeads inside it. Even though the before after picture looks nearly the same, I feel that my face feels fresh and oil free after I rinsed it off. The microbeads are soft so they don’t scratch my skin and caused more damage. I do feel that it would be better if there were no fragrance in the ingredients list, but it does work to remove my excess oil without leaving a tight sensation on my face.
