I’m sure many of you know about Cellnique Skin Action Sebum Gel and how effective it is as many bloggers had great experiences using it. Cellnique sent me this gel in March and I only write the review now.
This is a phyto bio-engineering formulation gel for all skin types to reduce both blackheads and whiteheads on affected skin area without painful extraction. This daily maintenance gel also reduces sebum secretion, leaving the skin clear and producing smooth visible results within 10 days of application.
Controls excessive sebum
Reduces the formation of blackheads and whiteheads
Reduces skin inflammatory
Controls and prevents breakouts
Increases skin moistures and improves skin elasticity
Color: Slightly hazy
Texture: Thick fluid type
Feeling: Cooling and refreshing
Sadly, it did not work for me. I gave it a month to see the result but no good news for me. Instead whenever I went to do facial, I never get comment about having less blackheads and whiteheads, it’s either getting more or no difference. -.-”
The photos are showing before and after effect. I think it got worst, no? Ignore the pimple there ;p The after photo was taken one month after used. I only blog about it now because I was thinking of giving it more time but till now… About 6 months, there’s no positive effect for me. I decided to contact Cellnique about it and I found out that I’m not suitable for this product. They did ask me about my skin condition before sending me the product but I guess I gave them the wrong information, in fact I have dehydrated skin instead of oily skin. I knew my skin was dry but I did not expect my dehydration is this bad until recently.
Do take note:
Skin Action Sebum Gel works excellent on oily and congested skin to helps reduce both blackheads and whiteheads and control oiliness at the same time. But when skin is/became dehydrated or lack of hydration on skin surface, it could stimulate the sebaceous gland which will produce more oil and become more congested.
So… Make sure your blackheads and whiteheads are caused by oily and congested skin instead of dry skin.
It has medicinal smell, not really what I like but if it works, I don’t care about that. The pump was quite hard to control. The dispensing of the amount of product wasn’t consistent, it could be a lot for a single pump or otherwise. Usually, not much for first pump, then second pump, it would be too much for me to use.
However, it does help in combating the pimples breakout. Whenever I felt that there might be some breakouts, I would apply it on the area and it did work well. I’m only using it to combat my occasional pimples instead of blackheads and whiteheads now.
In case you’re wondering about the price, I think it’s RM150+ if I’m not mistaken. I lost the box with the price tag.
In conclusion, it does not work for me. I thought I will not suffer too much during my facial but it did not help in reducing it hahahah… Anyway, I’m trying to hydrate my skin as much as possible now.
