B.liv by Cellnique Glow and Shine Mask

Hello ladies,

I have been applying B.Liv by Cellnique Glow and Shine mask every week for the past month. A pleasure to use, this mask affords a relaxing feel along with the scent of summer fruits. The skin clearing benefits of this treatment are suitable for all skin types.

Beginning with clean skin, moistened with a light splash of water, I apply a layer of Glow and Shine. The mask contains an exfoliant that feels like fine grains of sand. I massage the exfoliating beads against my skin for a minute or two until the mask becomes dry enough to set. I allow the mask to activate for ten minutes before rinsing. For a deeper clean, I apply Glow and Shine before showering. Giving my face a final gentle scrub in the steam heat of the shower helps dislodge any pore clogging debris.

Although Glow and Shine is part of the B.Liv Large Pores Range, it can assist other skin types as well. My dry skin has shown improvement in texture and smoothness, especially on my cheeks near the jaw line. Exfoliating masks are very useful for normal to dry complexions. When dead skin cells are removed, treatment moisturizers have a better chance to absorb and provide optimal hydration.

I appreciate that Glow and Shine helps balance my skin without irritating the sensitive areas. Using a weekly treatment mask has helped with maintaining the proper oil balance across my entire face. I tend to have less dryness to contend with on my cheeks and less active oil production on my nose.

Glow and Shine has a juicy scent that makes me think of black grapes and hibiscus tea. The fragrance of this treatment makes it even more enjoyable to use.

Ingredients: Purified Water (Aqua), Zinc Oxide, Glycerin, Kaolin, Hexyldecanol, Silica, Polysorbate 20, Cetearyl Alcohol, Lactic Acid, Stearic Acid, Bentonite, Cetyl Alcohol, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Cetearyl Sulfate, Diazolidinyl Urea, Menthyl Lactate, Methylparaben, Papaya Enzyme (Papain), Fragrance, Propylparaben.

Glycerin is a welcome ingredient in a clay mask. This natural humectant will draw moisture to the skin and act as a balancing agent for the cleansing effects of the clay.

Found in green papaya, papain is an enzyme that helps dissolve and remove dead skin cells. I look for papaya enzyme when choosing cleansing/exfoliating products. It brings about a glow in my skin.

If you are looking for a pore clearing mask that will help brighten the complexion and refine skin texture, Glow and Shine has earned my recommendation.

Happy painting, ladies!


  1. The ingredients are so healthy. I like an exfoliating mask. Makes my skin sooo soft afterwards.

  2. Kimberly: I used to think of masks as an occasional indulgence, but I now use them every week for the skin softening benefits. Glow & Shine is a great product!
