My Thoughts:

Packaging:

It came in a plastic "outer cover" box where you slide our the main box out from inside. Nice packaging. The bottle itself is about 4 inches tall or so and it is a pump bottle with a cap. The bottle itself is translucent, where you can still see the product inside, but you'd have to look a little more carefully. I like how "clean" the packaging looks.

Smell:

Smells minty and fresh! I like it! It feels cooling to your skin too.

Did it Work?

It sort of did. I mean I did see a slight difference (ah so sorry I completely forgot to take pictures of the "after" portion of my nose for this), but nothing drastic enough to be wow'd about. To be honest, I wasn't sure how this product works. I didn't know whether you put it on and let it absorb so it can loosen up the blackheads and then you put on a pore strip or manually extract the blackheads, or if the product itself gets rid of the blackheads on its own. For me, I only put on this product once in the morning and once at night for 2 weeks and saw minor improvements. If you see their claim in saying that it will get rid of blackheads and make them never appear again, I can confidently say that's not true. It got rid of a minimal amount, and the blackheads came back unfortunately.

I will continue to use the rest of this product and if somehow later on I see this product working, I definitely will let yall know. For now, I still feel extremely self conscious of my nose because this product didn't get rid of the blackheads as it claimed. I was so hoping this product would work :(


PROS:

-nice packaging
-easy to use
-blackheads reduced (but nothing drastic enough)

CONS:

-too expensive at $63 USD
-did not get rid of the blackheads as much as it claimed
Would I purchase this again? No. (but i MIGHT change my mind after I use up the whole bottle, but for now it's a no)

Rating: 3/5

My Thoughts:

Packaging:

It's the same as the Off With Those Heads. White bottle that's slightly translucent with a cap and a pump. Very sanitary

Smell:

It smells very fresh. Not sweet, not citrusy. Just fresh laundry, cleanliness.


Did It Work:

Not on me. I have combination-oily skin and on the label it said it's for dry skin. Though I personally believe it isn't for dry skin either because the formula is more gel-like than skin-thirst-quenching-creamy. I would say this is best suited for normal skin that just needs a bit of moisture. It never claimed to control oil, but I guess I'll mention it anyway that it for sure doesn't control the oilies. My face-oil-spill rises quite quickly with this product, unfortunately.

I do love how easily it spreads though and the smell. It smooths over your face so well. It does make my skin feel slightly tight, so it didn't feel as moisturizing as I thought.

This product did not make me break out, nor did it provide any noticeable benefits.

PROS:

-smells great
-sanitary packaging
-spreads easily

CONS:

-expensive
-not easily available (order online)
-didn't improve my skin (nor did it hurt it)

Would I Repurchase? No

Rating: 2.5/5 (not a bad product...it just didn't do much for me)

Other thoughts:

I've seen a lot of other bloggers post their reviews about these same products as well as other bliv products. They seem to get benefits from them. Maybe my skin is just picky? I don't know. From what I gathered, most people either had great benefits, or it was a product where it didn't benefit or harm them, just like for me.

I just can't shell out money for a product that doesn't give me visible results. If you have extra money to spare, you can maybe try out Off With Those Heads because it seems that other bloggers have had success with it.


Giveaway:

First of all I want to let yall know, I was supposed to post this review LONG time ago back in May but I had lots of personal problems going on, so due to the delay, I'm not sure if bliv is still giving out samples to the first 50 readers, but it's still worth a shot to email them! :)

Email your full name and your mailing/shipping address to fbfreesample@blivskin.com with the title ichigobunnie.blogspot.com :)


Thank yall for reading!

I'll have more reviews coming out.
