I got a mail last month from Cellnique asking me to review some of their products. I’m sure many of you heard of this brand if you do read beauty blogs. Really didn’t expect I would get such opportunity to review it too. I agreed to it as I’ve been reading so many reviews about it from other bloggers and I would love to try it out myself.
I finally got the package last Tuesday. Was sent with 3 products. I’m going to review Cellnique Contour De-Puffy Jewel(RM169 for 15ml, never in my life use such expensive product ;p) as the other two still need a bit more time to see the effect.
Right: The gel like texture, just one pump is enough for two eyes. Massage until it’s fully absorbed.
This is the quote I got from the Cellnique‘s website:
With its unique combination of Acetyl Tetrapeptide Gold Dipeptide and Rhodochrosite extract, this breakthrough eye formulation helps alleviate eye puffiness by increasing blood circulation and deep moisture the eye areas. This puffiness reducing and SPF15 eye care sunscreen helps reveals radiant eyes immediately after short period of application.
An organic derivative of seaweed that binds moisture in the epidermis thus firming and strengthening the skin. It is also known to act as an anti-oxidant to actively prevent the acceleration of premature aging.
Acetyl Tetrapeptide Gold Dipeptide

I have slightly puffy eyes, dark circles(due to lack of sleep and also sensitive nose. Oh yes! You’ll get dark circle is you are having problem with your nose), lots of oil seeds, and the dreaded fine lines(have to admit I’m no longer young hahaha…). The puffiness is quite obvious in the photos most of the time if I smile showing my teeth(example here).
The photos here only gone tru’ some adjustments of curves to show you the problems I’m having with my eyes clearer. Differences in colours and I had to change position due to the change of lighting since I’m using natural lighting and I took the photos before and after shower.
You can say that because of the different lighting made as if the product worked but I can tell you the product really worked, it’s not the lighting issue! I was surprised with the effect right after I applied the product on the first usage.
This photo was taken on the second day of usage. On the first day, I woke up with really puffy eyes. After showered, I applied the the gel and the puffiness reduced so much that I got too excited and forgot to take photo of it. Since I didn’t take the before photo so couldn’t compare also. So I made a mental note to take before and after photos the next morning.
The next morning, as you can see from the photo. This is my right eye. I was grinning from ear to ear when I took the photos so that the puffiness can be seen more clearly.
Left: There’s puffiness but wasn’t that bad compare to the previous day. There’s also fine lines. I have droppy eyelid on my right eye. Add on with the puffiness, it looked even worst.
Right: Reduction in fine lines, less puffy as you can see the eyelid didn’t seem that droppy.
There wasn’t noticeable improvement on my dark circles though, I guess it is due to me having late nights these few weeks -.-” It’s important to lead a healthy lifestyle to have a product really works well. I believe that no matter how good a product is, without you leading a healthy lifestyle, the product will be a waste because it couldn’t work to its full potential.
As for the oil seeds problem, it’s beyond the functions of this product. So I won’t comment on it but it’s a good eye care product to use as it’s not oily and with SPF 15.
Just one downside, the price is quite steep for me. Let’s just see how long this bottle will last me and then see how I could work it out with my budget. Pretty broke for now as I’m saving for something big.
You can’t get them in Kuching though. However, you can get it online at Cellnique‘s website.
