If you’ve been following me, you know that I have oily and sensitive skin because I kept repeating it over and over. When you have oily skin, then all the “good” things come with it. In my case, it makes my skin really prone to acne. I’ve been using cream moisturizer for years and I think its time for me to change to gel moisturizes because that’s what best for oily skin. There is wide range of gel moisturizer in the market and I ended up buying the B.liv Soothe & Matte moisturizer because the price point is within my budget.
Here are the product claims from the B.liv website:
- Hydrating, soothing & oil-control moisturizer designed for sensitive and oily, acne-prone skin
- Soothes and calms skin discomfort and sensitivity
- Nourishing non-comedogenic moisturizer
- Reduces excess oil shine
- Restores skin’s balance to prevent further skin irritations
- Minimizes dryness & skin irritation from intense acne treatments
- Helps restore hydrolipidic barrier often altered by acne treatments
The packaging is nice and simple. It comes in a clear bottle that has a pump applicator, which makes it so handy dandy when I’m using it. The B.liv Soothe & Matte moisturizer is a clear gel moisturizer that absorbs into the skin really fast. Literally it absorbs within seconds.
I do feel like it does soothe my skin a little bit because I don’t get as many breakouts anymore. I feel so desperate to change to gel moisturizer because I read that it can help to prevent the formation of whiteheads but I don’t think this moisturizer reduce my whiteheads in any way. Maybe I should try the B.liv Off With Those Heads?
Does it really keep my face matte all day long?
Yeah, I’m not too sure about that because on a very hot & humid day (Malaysia is pretty much hot & humid everyday), I still got pretty oily all over my face even when I’m wearing my Bare Minerals Matte foundation. On a much more calmer day, I think it did a pretty good job on reducing the excess oil.
Will I repurchase? No.
I’m sorry if this review is so simple. It’s just that I don’t really have much to say about this product because I don’t think it has anything special about it. Don’t let me keep you from buying it because it might be a miracle for you.
