b.liv by Cellnique b.seen Eye Care I’m Dark Circle Reliever Review

I have reviewed products from the brand Cellnique in the past and was very impressed with the items I tried. Cellnique has branched out with a new sub-brand b.liv. I have been testing out their I’m Dark Circle Remover eye cream for a couple months now. 
This is what the b.liv brand from Cellnique has to say about this product:
Hi, I’m Reliever. Dark Circle Reliever to be more precise and I have a mission possible: to lift away puffiness, reduce dark under eye circles and protect the delicate skin around your eyes against harmful environmental factors. What’s my strategy? I’m using active ingredients to improve the blood circulation around the eye area and make sure your skin will feel nourished, rejuvenated and radiant. Heavy eyes, tired skin no more! Mission accomplished!
Diminishes dark circles + puffiness
• Diminishes dark circles
• Lifts away eye puffiness
• Offers hydration
• Non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic formulation

The first thing I want to say is that I absolutely love the texture of this product. It has the most amazing, silky texture. It just feels so nice when you apply it. So nice that I admit to using this product all over my face on a few occasions. It has a very subtle pearlized glow that helps illuminate the eye area and reduce the appearance of dark circles. 
The main actives in the I’m Dark Circle Reliever are:

  • N-Hydroxysuccinimide: Activates the elimination of blood originated pigments responsible for the dark circle colour and local swelling  .    
  • Hesperidin Methyl Chalcone: Helps reduce capillary permeability to prevent leakage that leads to dark bruise-like discoloration – dark circles.
  • Dipeptide-2: Smoothes the eye contours and reduces bagginess.
  • Palmitoyl Oligopeptide: Reinforces the elasticity of the skin and tones the eye area.

While I don’t have much of an issue with dark circles the Reliever product is also designed to help reduce puffiness. Puffiness of the upper lids is my main skin care concern when it comes to my eyes. I am of course all about preventing wrinkles in that area but my more immediate obsession has always been to improve the appearance of my upper lids. That is why the I’m Dark Circle Reliever cream was selected for review over the I’m Wrinkle Eraser product they also offer.
In terms of results I haven’t really noticed anything dramatic or quantifiable. That being said I rarely ever experience substantial results with skincare. It has kept my eye area hydrated and healthy. I have experienced no milia or other issues with this eye cream. It also has a lovely light texture that functions beautifully under makeup. I have been very happy with it these past couple months and haven’t been anxious to switch to something else. Would I purchase a replacement? No. Simply because I will always be looking for that miracle product that will FINALLY do something to improve the condition of my upper eyelids. I think maybe it is time to start saving up my skincare money and go for Blepharoplasty! I love the plastic pump packaging but not really a fan of the creepy eye ball on top.

Cellnique Skincare Review

I was given the opportunity to test out some skincare products from the Malaysian brand Cellnique, “the experts of problematic skin”. Cellnique products are formulated with Cx Formulation which is an advanced in-clinic formulation that combines the power of biological active ingredients, natural plant extracts, antioxidants and a bio-active delivery system, offering the best performance for immediate and visible results for various skin problems.

There are several things that I find fabulous about Cellnique. Firstly their website makes it very easy to determine which products would be best for your needs. They are organized by product type but they can also be searched by the type of skin issue you would like to address. This makes it possible to create a skin care regime targeted at addressing one or several concerns you have. Their customer service can also help you choose the best products to try. They even have an online chat option which is a customer service feature I LOVE and wish more companies offered. There are also pre-designed kits to target different conditions that make the selection even easier!

Another feature Cellnique offers, which I find outstanding, is that the product information on their website is incredibly thorough. There are of course ingredient listings but also ingredient spotlights on the main actives in each of their products. There is a list of benefits, usage instructions and my favourite feature is that they even show a picture of the product itself along with describing it’s colour, scent, sensation, and texture. You know exactly what to expect. No surprises.

The packaging is beautiful. I loved the boxes the products came in and the product packaging itself is simple, professional and excellent quality. It would look gorgeous on your bathroom vanity.

Being 35 with very fair delicate skin I have umpteen issues I need to address. The products Cellnique sent me to test out were the Advanced Bio Renewal Masque, Contour De-puffy Jewel, and Derma Whitening Essence. I have been using all of these products for a full month.

The Advanced Bio Renewal Masque is formulated with bio-captured fresh fruit enzymes and acids complex. It is designed to effectively exfoliate dead cells, optimizing cellular renewal performance and deep pore cleansing to reveal softer, fresher and healthier skin. I love this masque. I’ve never been much of a masque person. For some reason I never take the time to pamper myself with one, but I have loved using this masque. It has a refreshing mild tingling sensation and I adore the scent. My skin is becoming clearer and more radiant the longer I’ve been using it. 

The Contour De-puffy Eye Jewel is a thick, clear gel serum. It has a unique combination of Acetyl Tetrapeptide Gold Dipeptide and Rhodochrosite Extract which helps alleviate eye puffiness and dark circles by increasing blood circulation and deep moisture the eye areas. It also has SPF15 which is a great feature. I think this eye serum is great for younger skin but if you suffer from dryer skin as I do you will want to add another eye cream for moisture on top. It has a slight tacky texture so if using in the morning prior to applying makeup I would ensure the product has absorbed and prime the area with another product first to prevent your makeup from grabbing. This product didn’t work out for me as well as the others on it’s own but I enjoy pairing it with another eye cream to get the results I need.

Derma Whitening Essence is a high-performance lightening essence that effectively targets the appearance of dark spots to give skin an extraordinary radiance and natural colour. It is a revolutionary formulation for gradual fading of pigmentation or harm caused by free radicals. I really like this product. I used two pumps morning and night over my entire face and the bottle lasted the month. I didn’t notice a dramatic lightening in pigmentation, as you will see below, but regardless of this I still loved this serum. I noticed an overall evening of my skin tone. I feel my skin now has a nicer, healthier texture and glow as a result of using this product and while my spots didn’t fade a tonne I think with continued use the gradual fading will result in a more quantifiable result.

My overall impression of Cellnique is that they are a quality skin care line with a diverse product offering with advanced actives at a reasonable price.
