i am a quarter of a century year old. looks fade and don’t come back (unless you go under the knife). while i still have a marginal amount of youthfulness left in me, time is running out!
#1 – can i still get away with wearing this in 20 years?
the only thing that i can do now is to start maintaining my looks while i still got it. now or never. wrinkles…once you’ve got them, they can’t be erased. damaged skin will never recover. cosmetics can camouflage so much but a good skincare regiment is the mother of all answers.
#2 – time to take care of your skin!
i was recently introduced to a line of products called b.liv by Cellnique. Cellnique has been around for a while and is pretty well-known among skincare enthusiasts. they recently went through a rebranding exercise to freshen up its market presence and at the end of this post you’ll be able to find out more about it.
except for eye cream, i have been using b.liv by Cellnique for every aspect of my skincare….cleansing, moisturising, zit control and the likes.
i’m very pleased with b.liv by Cellnique but there is one product that i would like to highlight: Off With Those Heads.
formerly known as Cellnique Pro Sebum Gel, it went through a repackaging and it’s now christened as “Off With Those Heads”.
#3 – old packaging
this is Cellnique’s best known product because it really works! personally, i had a nagging problem with black and white heads eversince my teenage year on my nose but since using “Off With Those Heads” for only 3 weeks, my nose is dramatically clearer after every wash with “Drench Me” (a cleanser from b.liv by Cellnique range).
#4 – new packaging – Off With Those Heads
when i first used “Off With Those Heads”, i was expecting to see dead skin cells clumping together as i rubbed it into my problem areas. instead it was quickly absorbed into my skin. i have no idea how they do it, but it seems that the gel goes works deep into the pores and then slowly but effectively dislodges the black and white heads.
#5 – you only need a pea sized amount for your nose and t-zone area. massage it into your t-zone area or any part of your face that suffers from blackheads/whiteheads. the gel absorbs really quickly and after that you’re free to put on your moisturiser or makeup over it.
it has 4 active ingredients; tea tree oil, aloe extract, witch hazel extract and peppermint oil which properties are anti-bacterial, antiseptic, anti-ageing, moisturizing, pore refining and calming to the skin.
the best thing about it? you don’t have to wash it off.
i think this is a much better way to deal with black/white heads rather than forcefully stripping off layers of skin with the average exfoliant. bubye painful extraction. bubye facials.
#6 – of course, the effect is not achieved overnight but it’s a painless and effective way to get rid of those damned heads.
before this i’ve virtually given up on ever having a spotless nose and was just grateful that the rest of my face is comparatively clear. but now that i’ve seen the difference that it makes to have a nose with no blackheads or whiteheads, i’m completely sold.
#7 – there we go, all for the sake of clear, young & healthy skin. i know i can’t stop time but at least i can slow it down as much as possible.
i no longer have those pesky minute heads floating on top of my makeup. it was such a drag to try to smoothen the nose with foundation and concealor but now it’s a breeze.
#8 – here i am with some pressed powder, some blusher and a slick of lip gloss. perhaps i’d look better with more makeup, but right now i just like to look as natural as possible.
yes, this is an advertorial but i can honestly tell you that i’m now a b.liv by Cellnique convert. i really enjoy their products as i can definitely feel a difference to my skin. i would highly recommend this to people with normal and combination skin. you must absolutely get “Off With Those Heads”. now
