bliv by cellnique - off with those heads blackhead treatment, refresh me and fine line stoppage sheer off crease anti ageing mask

I was sent these to review from cellnique.  It isn't a brand I've heard of before but I was really interested in the blackhead treatment and the Japanese style silk mask as I haven't tried them before and I keep seeing them reviewed!

off with those heads
You apply to the area with blackheads/whiteheads. It really really smells like cough medicine which is a little unnerving but I carried on anyway, it's a bit tingly and fresh feeling like when you get menthol on your skin too so I'm guessing that's one of the key Iingredients. It dries a little sticky so it's another one to use when you're not going somewhere.  It doesn't say how often to use this or how long to leave it on.
This is the product I was most excited to try as I do have a bit of a problem with blackheads on my nose (sorry tmi) coupled with dry skin so something to just apply to the area would be ideal for me.  Unfortunately this didn't work for me which was a bit disappointing. I persevered but didn't really see any results.
refresh me
I found this quite harsh on my skin and to be honest I probably didn't test it as extensively as the other two, my skin can be quite reactive at times though. I don't usually use toner and this hasn't convinced me to.
fine line stoppage sheer off crease
I expected to not really like this - I really wanted to try this but normally I prefer clay type masks that you can get into every nook and cranny of your face. We all look different right? Anyway, I actually quite liked this. You peel it from its backing and put it on your face, patting it down. This is ridiculously creepy looking once on. It feels very cool and refreshing on your skin albeit a little slimy. It doesn't really smell of anything either.  Despite the creepiness, my skin felt really hydrated and fresh after using this and I actually look forward to using them. I can't agree that it stops fine lines or anything like that but my skin looks plumped up. I'd definitely buy these again in future.

Overall I thought this brand was ok but I don't think I'd rush to try out other things from them.

  1. Great review! Upon reading this, I think I am going to pass on this one. I kinda have sensitive skin and I think this would not work well with my skin too.


Thank you for commenting, I read them all!
