If I have just 1 product I really like from Cellnique it will be this – the Cellnique Skin Action Sebum Gel. You might have heard of this product – I have in various online forums a few years ago and I’d always wondered about this wonder gel that keeps skin clear and pimple free.
In fact, there is a similar sort of product in the pharmacies under the brand B.Liv which I’m told is not from the same brand or maybe it was but isn’t now, I’m not sure. This one is by Cellnique Paramedical – available only in selected salons and online. However, I can now understand the raves for the Cellnique Skin Action Sebum Gel after trying it for myself.
Just 2 weeks using this gel and my nose and chin area is almost blackhead and spot free – even when right smack in the middle of crazy monthly hormones! You are told to use this on your congested areas so that’s what I did.
Do not expect to see results immediately. It took me slightly over a week before I noticed that my nose and chin areas looked clearer and smoother. This was with minimal blackheads and congestion to start with. If your skin is very congested it might take longer to see results. This clear gel is very light in texture and you only use quite little, and only on problem areas so it can last you a while.
You could get a sample and try it for yourself – details after the jump and are limited but open for worldwide participation! Hopalong now… ;)
When applied on the skin, there is a tingling minty feel on the skin. I follow up with the Intensive Hydrating Complex or any moisturizer and it feels fine. Not drying like many similar products. I reckon you can use this with any line of skincare – its seriously impressive :)
The instructions say that you can use it on oily combination skin and to reduce oil secretion to keep skin matt for longer. I however do not have very oily skin so I cannot attest to this. If you have and it works for you please do share!
Is this worth a re-purchase? I’d say yes since it keeps my skin clear as promised.
Caveat: My one caveat is that I’ve gotten my skin down to the level where I’m happy with how it looks – its hydrated and less oily and just clearer overall so perhaps thats why this product seems good for me for maintenance. If you have very congested or oily skin, I cannot quite say how it will work for you or it might work well for you, but might take longer to show results.
A 30ml bottle of Cellnique Skin Action Sebum Gel retails for RM159 – pricey but worth it for clearing up congested skin and it can last you a while. Now I’ve gotten my skin clear, I use it sparingly – about every alternate day instead of everyday – works for me and helps stretch the product for longer! :)
