So from the title, this post is going to be about some B.liv products I was sent to review. I said I was going to review these after 2-3 weeks use, but I've been busy with university and work. I hope you all forgive me! T_T
DISCLAIMER: these were sent to me for free, and I'm not paid to state my opinion. The opinion is 100% mine and I an not being influenced to change my opinion on these products.

Now to the review!
Bright is right mask: This mask is a sheet mask, which is soaked in an essence and all you need to do is leave it on your face for 20-30 minutes. I've used two as of now, and from what I have experienced so far, it isn't so good. Every time I use this product I would get small, red bumps the next day. I'm not sure if it's a bad reaction or my skin just not use to the products, but either way I won't be purchasing this product. Besides that, I don't think it really did anything for me. I didn't see any brightening effects like it claims to and as a mask, it didn't give any moisturizing effects like other masks do.
Overall review: 1/5
Glow and shine mask: This is a mask and an exfoliator, so you would typically use this once a week. Leave a thin layer on the face for 5-10 minutes and then use wet hands to massage this around the face for 5-10 seconds then wash off. The first few times of using this I found it to be a bit harsh on my skin and made my skin quite red afterwards. I've used this 3-5 times so far, and it's ok. I haven't seen any dramatic results but my skin does feel smooth right after using this, and the effects do not last very long. For those with active acne might feel a tingling sensation with this, so be careful. Not bad, not great, and will not purchase.
Shrink and tighten: I thought this would be just a watery serum, but it actually has an oil texture to it. It's recommended to use 2-3 pea size drops and used all over the face. The first few uses, I found that I was breaking out, but only because I was using too much. What I do now is use 1 drop at a time and use it only in the areas where I get enlarged pores (nose, check area around the nose, between the brows and chin). I only use this 2-4 times a week, and by doing this I have found that my pores have become smaller! I see a dramatic difference when I use this right after exfoliating my face. Does work, but will not purchase as pores isn't my biggest concern as of now.
Overall review: 4/5
Thanks again to B.liv by Cellnique for sending these to me for review. Overall I was quite disappointed with these products. They do work ok, but not enough for me to buy them myself. They do have other products for specific skin types and problems, so do check out their site here. If you have any further question about these products, do leave a comment below and I shall reply as soon as I see them!
