Cellnique Review & Giveaway

So who here hasn't heard of Cellnique yet?  Cellnique is a pharmaceutical grade skin care line based in Malaysia and probably most well-known for their famous miracle acne & scar reducing Skin Action Sebum Gel.  I've read countless reviews from various beauty bloggers and have always been intrigued so I was positively thrilled to be contacted by them!


Cellnique is hosting a blogger contest and they invited me to participate because some of you nominated me as your favorite blogger (thanks so much guys)!  Basically whoever creates the Cellnique related blog content that goes the "most viral" will win an all expenses paid trip to Malaysia!  Malaysia!  I know I've always fantasized about the bustling city and beautiful beaches!  And here's the awesome bonus -- if I get chosen, Cellnique will also pick one of my readers to meet me in Malaysia!



First off I was incredibly impressed with Cellnique's customer service. They replied to all my e-mails the same day and Ruby, one of Cellnique's beauty advisers actually read through my blog and hand picked a personalized skin care regimen based on skin problems and previous products I spoke of in past entries as well as the concerns mentioned in my e-mails.  They then sent me a tracking number and my products arrived in THREE DAYS -- all the way from Malaysia!  Who can say the same about customer service for some of these American companies?

Here's what Ruby picked out for me:




This gentle milk cleanses and nourishes your skin at the same time.  It contains vitamin C and wheat germ to help fight against free radicals and is suitable for post-procedure skin such as after chemical peels and microdermabrasions.  It's supposed to be vanilla scented but I would say it smells more like freshly baked bread.

I love the creamy texture and it's so soothing to apply.  It works great as a morning cleanser or a make-up remover for night time -- I do recommend using an additional cleanser if you are wearing make-up.  A tip from the Cellnique website is to mix this milk with their Advanced Bio Renewal Masque a couple times a week for an awesome exfoliation!  My skin feels supple and moisturized after using this milk -- definitely a nice alternative to my usual cleansing oils!

Price: $38.00


This serum contains a patented formulation of alpha hydroxy acids, beta hydroxy acids, vitamins, and fruit enzymes to re-texturize the skin and stimulate cell renewal by gently exfoliating the skin to remove dead skin cells.  It dissolves debris in the pores and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to promote skin texture.  Upon applying the creamy serum I felt a slight tingle but it wasn't the least bit irritating and absorbed quickly into my skin.  The scent is similar to a mild sunblock but hardly noticeable.  I applied it overnight under my night cream and woke up to clear, radiant skin.  I can't wait to see the long term effects!

Price: $51.00


This magical little duo consists of Amino Collagen C Intense I and Amino Collagen C Intense II.  Intense I is a high-potency vitamin C serum that improves skin resilience and refines open pores.  It also lightens acne scars, increases collagen, and firms and lifts the skin.

Intense II is an oil-free serum that contains a low-density hyaluronate acid that helps repair damaged cells and instantly delivers a silky smooth texture after application.  The serum reduces wrinkles and the hyaluronate acid retains moisture in the skin.

These serums come with droppers -- just like magic potions!  It does seem like it's one step too many at first but you quickly get used to applying one after the other.  Eventually you learn to enjoy all the skin care steps because you realize all the good your doing for your skin!  Intense I also has a slight tingle upon application from the acids but that's just to let you know that it's working!  It may be be a little harsh for those with sensitive skin to apply morning and night so you should start out with just applying these once a day.

After using this set for a few days I saw improvement in the texture and clarity of my skin, and saw a slight lightening in my acne scars but again I will have to use it a little longer for the much raved about long term benefits.

Price: $96.00



Can you say tropical paradise?!  This deliciously pineapple scented masque is one of Cellnique's top selling products and treats dull and uneven skin tone, congestion, pigmentation, wrinkles, discoloration, enlarged pores, and acne scars.  It contains fruit enzymes and acids for the perfect exfoliation to instantly whiten and brighten the skin.

The texture is a creamy clay and spreads easily over the skin.   It also contains small beads to give you a nice little scrub as you massage your face and rinse off.  You all know I'm a bit of a mask whore so it takes a lot to impress me but I love everything about this stuff from the scent to the consistency to the way my skin feels baby soft after applying it!

Price: $51.00



Overall I am thoroughly impressed with Cellnique and amazed at the improvement in my skin in such a short period of time.  Most of the products offered instant gratification through brighter, clearer, and softer skin.  I've seriously tried so many skin care lines but Cellnique is on top of their game -- the beauty advisers are so knowledgeable about their products and able to offer educated advice for any skin condition.  I will definitely be purchasing more items to complete my skin care regimen.  The packaging is sleek, sturdy, and expensive looking -- definitely something you would find at a high-end department store counter -- and would make for an impressive looking gift.

Speaking of gifts -- I did want to include a giveaway with this post because Cellnique's products can be a little pricey and hard to get, and I really want others to be able to try them out.  Everything is amazing and it will really change the way you view skin care.

Remember you can purchase any of their products from Cellnique.com and their shipping IS super speedy.  They offer free shipping for any purchase over $60 as well as free samples and a 7 day return policy.  And it is honestly worth the money to see such an amazing improvement in your skin.  As you can see from their Facebook and other beauty blogs they have a huge following and many many rave reviews.

Felicia C said...

Wow Kelly! You seriously always have the best posts! I'm not surprised that Cellnique reached out to you to test out their products. I'm definitely jealous!!!

I had some unusual growth spurts when I was in high school and have some pretty subtle stretch marks. I have not heard of cellnique before, but other products I have tried don't work as great as they want you to think. Is the Amino-Collagen C Intense Set the product to use for the scar reduction?

Thanks and you keep on blogging gurrrl!!! I'm definitely going to look into these Cellnique products!

Do you prefer the cleansing milk over cleansing oils? It seems like it would be more moisturizing.

maryjadeanne said...

. I’ve never seen a beauty product that seems so expensive and promising like these one. Kelly shares it’s about 300$ so it must be surely effective! Besides it won’t cost that much if it’s not. I’m excited to try these items! Knowing that these are produced by professionals I know I don’t have to worry trying something new. Most consumers are hesitating to try new products, not me! I have a great feeling this would bring great results. I would even post my ‘before & after’ looks if I’d be given a chance to try these pieces! Oh, I can’t wait- really!

Hi, I've been using cellnique products since 2006. At first it was sebum gel, then later my cellnique skincare line expanded more and more to sunblock, moisturizer, Amino C collagen, vital repair milk, ceutox serum, moisturizing and balancing toner and the latest one is reversal diamond EGF drop. Since started using it in 2006, there was no turning back. If you haven't try reversal diamond EGF drop, i suggest you try it. It is soooooo good and you can feel the difference almost immediately. I love it. you have done a very good job and welcome to Malaysia. Don't forget to try the facial by cellnique when you are here. Cheers!!
