Skincare Review - b.liv Products Review

b.liv Japan silk mask and b.liv youth preserving serum
Miranda's Notes:
In my continued search for the perfect skincare routine (which I'm sure exists, it must!), I recently had the opportunity to try several b.liv products.  The b.liv company, pronounced "believe," is a comprehensive range of products meant to tackle different skin issues like pore reduction, black heads removal, anti-aging, and skin brightening.  The items are laboratory-formulated for premium salon administration, but offered as part of an easy to use, at home personal skincare regimen.  The b.liv representatives are very helpful in assisting with recommendations and what products would work work best for your skin specifically - it really does feel like you are visiting a virtual salon ready to tackle your skin concerns.
b.liv Japan Silk Masks - affordable, effective and easy to use
b.liv Bright is Right Masque (available here) and b.liv Knock off Age Masque (available here)
These b.liv masques are quite different from the usual masks I've tried (different in a good way!). There are no stiff paper materials that make you look like strange Frankenstein characters and there is no product to actually paste to your face - the b.liv Japanese silk masks are a very sheer, very soft, and malleable material that actually stays put on your face. There are open holes for the eyes and nose and mouth but because of the material you can actually easily widen or even tear the mask to fit your face (that's a big plus for b.liv because I want my eye area protected).  After trying both of these masks, I definitely noticed my pores shrank and my face just felt tighter all around.  Using the b.liv Bright is Right mask also helped with skin brightening and redness - my sensitive skin responded wonderfully to the ingredients and had no reaction (the masks have no scent, but some ingredients list fragrance so be sure to check the full ingredients list).

Overall, b.liv masks have quite the interesting ingredients - think caviar extract, pearl powder, and pure Swiss apple - all of these combine to effectively rejuvenate skin.  Now, I wish I could give this product a full grade because I absolutely noticed the results but there are some issues - some of the masks have parabens so if you are looking for all natural products, you may not be able to use some b.liv products. Both masks made my skin feel too dry, and I ended up having to apply moisturizer immediately after.  However, if you have oily skin, these masks should work great (I took a look at the b.liv section for dry skin and dehydration issues which has several items, so I recommend experimenting with products from this section).
Grade: 4/5
b.liv Youth Preserving Serum
b.liv Dump off Drawn Youth Preserving Serum (available here)
Because I have noticed some fine lines and laugh lines, I have also been trying different anti-aging serums.  The b.liv Dump off Draw is meant to energize, brighten, and firm complexion quickly using ingredients like Resveratrol, Soy Isoflavone, and pure L-ascorbic acid.  The serum is a clear, odorless liquid that applies hygienically from a quite-inventive bottle (the packaging also keeps the serum contained and thus more potent).  When applied, the serum feels a bit tacky to the touch but quickly absorbs into the skin.  Unfortunately, I did not notice any anti-aging results with this serum - my skin felt somewhat more moisturized and less dull, but there was no impact on the fine lines.  Coupled with the high price of the product, I recommend actually trying the b.liv silk masks, you can actually feel those tightening skin and diminishing fine lines. 
Grade: 3/5
b.liv Dump off Drawn ingredients 
Visit the b.liv website and b.liv official Facebook page to learn more about the available products - b.liv tackles everything from aging to pore issues and spot treatments (and also contact b.liv as they are very helpful in giving recommendations that work for you - I plan on trying other products that are better suited for my skin issues).
