Celebrating b·liv 7th Birthday & GIVEAWAY! (CLOSED)

I am so freaking excited about today's post as one of my favourite brands is celebrating its 7th birthday this month. It's no secret that I am a huge fan of b·liv and I have raved about the brand and its products so many times on the blog. 

To celebrate its 7th birthday, b·liv has launched its special edition splendid 7 b.day pack. This birthday pack has 3 of b·liv's best selling products; off with those heads* (30mL), shrink and tighten* (30mL) and immerse me* silk sheet masks (5 pieces). And finally the pack also includes a birthday edition tote bag which features the winning design from b.liv 2nd Annual Tote Bag Design contest that was held earlier in March 2016.

I have tested two of the products and my undying love for immerse me* sheet mask is well documented here so to have 5 pieces in this pack is just brilliant for anyone who wishes to try b·liv sheet masks for the first time. Next is shrink and tighten* which I tested for the first time when I placed a huge order of b·liv sheet masks (this gal got to stock up!) and I received a 3mL sample of it. And the 3mL sample lasted almost three weeks and no, I'm not joking as I only use it on the small parts of my cheek areas.

shrink and tighten* has a pretty impressive ingredient list (check here):
· Witch Hazel - anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, astringent, helps with sun damage
· Spiraea Ulmaria Extract, Spiraea Ulmaria Flower Extract, Spiraea Ulmaria (meadowsweet) Leaf Extract - contains salicylic acid and Vitamind C, antacid, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic
· Zinc PCA - astringent, has antimicrobial properties and ability to thwart destructive enzymes in skin that leads to aging
· Nordihydroguaiaretic Acid (NDGA) - antioxidant
· Paeonia Albiflora Flower Extract - anti-oxidant effect similar to Vitamin E
· Niacinamide - Vitamin B3 (improves, brightens and revive skin's texture)
· Salicylic Acid - a BHA (beta hydroxy acid) that helps to exfoliate the pores and skin surface to reduce breakouts
· Allantoin - has smoothing and healing properties also provides a natural protectant for healing skin and is believed to promote cell regeneration

I didn't notice my pores shrinking, frankly I don't think it's possible but they are less noticeable than before. Previously despite using a pore minimizing primer, foundation seemed to find its way into the craters and made my pores look 10 times worse than than they really were but these days foundation seems to glide on better.

The only one that I didn't try is off with those heads* as with all the exfoliating that I do, I don't have blackheads or whiteheads and my pores are not congested. I will be testing it on Mr. Platt though and will report back on the progress.

It also has an impressive ingredient list (check here);
· Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract - helps to soothe and hydrate skin, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial
· Witch Hazel - anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, astringent, helps with sun damage
· Melaleuca Alternifolia (tea tree) Leaf Oil - anti-bacterial, acne control
· Mentha Piperita (peppermint) Oil - has skin conditioning properties
