 Precautions :
it's normal to have more oil secreted during initial period
those with sensitive skin may experience mild stinging sensation

I have an oily, sensitive skin.
I don't think my nose area produce more oil during use, so i don't face the first precaution. As the second one, the stinging sensation only happened at the first use.
I suggest for first use, use thin layer first, then as at least one full pump needed for each use, do layer it. Later, when you feel totally fine, use one-two full pump for nose area.
Use it twice a day.



 B.Liv off with those heads has a small-hole pump. Very practical i'd say.
The bottle itself is made from sturdy-feel plastic.

If your ever stalking in my blog, you'd know that i never ever use pore pack at least since i do blogging. I hate pore pack, they're NOT helping me. Well, pore pack only cleaned my blackhead for about 2-3 days. On 4th days, i need to use it again because i have too many new blackhead already.
Later i knew, i have to have a mask after pore pack. Impractical. I stick into clay mask ever since.

B.Liv Off with Those Heads is a whole new new new experience for us, people.
No pore pack, no steaming, no squeezing, no masking, very practical.
Use 1-2 pump on nose twice a day after cleanser. Let it dry (took a while, i use it while using moisturizer or benzoyl peroxide to another area) and continue to sunscreen. It has temporary cooling effect which i think very pleasant.
You wouldn't notice the difference until you see your own before-after picture.

Yes i was skeptical at first, i don't think it would work. Well i've read about the believe-ing philosophy but still.. i watch my blackhead everyday, wondering if it would really work.

I started using it at August 13th, took "before" pic right before my first use. My blackhead looks terrible! *i've warned you before!!!* But, at least it's only on my nose. I used to have some on my inner cheek area too, when i was in college. I thought pore pack is the culprit (opened my pore and won't close it back) so no reason to continue using pore pack.

my blackhead, and my enlarged pores *sigh*
So you think it's not bad?
Here's how it look, CLOSER.
Prepare yourself.

my blackhead, closer
 fyi, my nose was having redness caused by another skincare i tried before.
Not just my nose, my whole face was terrible. Thankfully it's gone after third days.

So sorry i wouldn't provide the picture of whole process, but in first week, i almost doesn't notice anything. Nothing changes.

and here's how it look after 14 days :

my nose, yay!

Well, so sorry for blurry pic.. It was taken after skincare (yes, after b.liv off with those heads).
I know it's not 100% clear, there are some that i think soooooo far under my skin, and truly hard to get rid of. But most of them are gone without hurt. I'll continus using this, hopefully in several weeks it would be better. Will update here in 2-3 weeks.

Checking their benefit's claim :
  • Removes blackheads and whiteheads - not all of them, but mostly YES
  • Keeps acne under control - haven't experience any breakout on my nose during use
  •  Controls oil - yes
  • Unclogs pores - yes, no more blackhead
  •  Provides a gentle exfoliation - supposed so
  • Has soothing and hydrating properties - my nose seems really great, like i do using primer (which i am not)
 .. And you know how sensitive my skin is. It's been better since early Augustus but i still need to choose my skincare carefully. This baby hasn't raise any allergy nor breakout reaction. While my nose is not 100% blackhead free, it's texture getting so much better. It's silky smoooootttth ~^^

B.Liv off with those head is an amazing product. I know the price is high but i think it's worth :)

Don't forget to be patience and faithful ^^~

Two of My Illamasqua Powder Blushers

You know how much i love my Illamasqua powder blush in Lover, and you might have read my review for Illamasqua powder blusher in Tremble. So today i'd post a short comparison review about them ^^~



Talking about packaging, i have to admit that Illamasqua is playing around the same design for most of their product.
It's really good to help customers identify their product, but could it be better quality?
I love my blushers and i want to carry them anywhere without worry.
up : tremble, below : lover
If you have many blushes, the clear lid help you to find which one is which.


tremble and lover, heavy swatch

Tremble and Lover, well blended

From Web description, it's clear they're so different.
Lover is soft apricot while Tremble is soft lilac pink

Tremble is much more dupe-able (i cant give you any dupe suggestion though) but if you're craving for Illamasqua's powder blushers quality, go get it.
Lover brighten my complexion in much better way i never think an orange blush will.

Both of them are easy to blend, soft, buildable and best of all : last long.
Illamasqua succesfully set a new standard for my blushers ^^~
Oh how i wish Illamasqua will enter in Indonesian market!

have a nice day~
