Beauty x (Leap Year!) Giveaway: B.liv Deep Impact

If you didn't know, the US Government has recently banned microbeads in beauty products as they are harmful to the environment. Now, that doesn't mean there aren't other exfoliating products in the market for us to use! Enter b.liv Deep Impact. It is a deep pores cleansing/ purifying & massage emulsion with jojoba microbeads for clean, smooth skin inside out!

It's time to bring your inner beauty out into the world. b.liv Deep Impact delves deep to expel imperfections to reveal the true beauty of your skin as it cleanses & massages to achieve porcelain perfection. It is gentle yet effective in exfoliating and clarifying your skin. Just like most b.liv products with its simplistic packaging & design, Deep Impact features a yellow theme (which represents their blackheads range) and comes in the form of a tube.

The product is an off-white (trust me, it's more yellowish in real life) and cream-like and is to be used as a cleanser. The main active ingredients are kaolin, which would explain the slightly chalky texture as it kaolin is a soft, naturally occuring clay mineral which is known to absorb excess oils to reduce shine. It also contains witch hazel, which acts as an antioxidant and has astringent properties to shrink enlarged pores & tone the skin. Tea tree is also added because of its anti-bacterial & antiseptic properties that is known to soothe blemished skin while aloe vera reduces inflammation, soothes, moisturises & nourishes the skin to promote wound healing. You'll be glad to know that this product is free from animal testing as well!

If you look closely, you'll notice these tiny white spheres. These are actually the Jojoba beads. Jojoba beads act as a mild & gentle yet effective exfoliating agent to remove dead skin cells that clog skin to reveal healthier, glowing complexion. Jojoba beads are made from 100% pure & natural Jojoba wax that unlike chemically-induced microbeads, do not clog drains. They also have no sharp edges so they will not leave micro-lacerations. These microscopic cuts could result in premature wrinkles & provide an entrance for bacteria into the skin's surface.

Just like a cleanser, you're supposed to use b.liv Deep Impact every day & night. Just apply a tiny amount to your damp skin (trust me, a little bit is really enough!) and gently massage in an upward & outward circular motion. Then, rinse well to reveal great skin!

My only thought after using Deep Impact is that it feels so refreshing, as it leaves a slightly minty, cooling sensation. It can be a little drying, so I always put on a moisturiser after washing my face. I used to only do a facial scrub once a week but because Deep Impact is so gentle, I can now use it daily. As a result, I noticed that I have less blackheads & whiteheads (although not very noticeable) and much smoother skin, the best surface to apply my makeup on! My skin is also less oily, especially on the T-zone.

What I love:
- Gentle enough to be used as an exfoliant daily
- Only small amount is needed for the whole face!
- Leaves a minty, cooling sensation
- Removes blackheads, whiteheads and uneven surfaces on the skin
- Smoother skin!

What I don't:
- A little drying after washing. For people with less oily skin, it is recommended to use this product 2 - 3 times a week.
- This may be just me, but somehow the product keeps leaking out slightly from the tube even though I lay it on its side. Quite wasteful :(
