After reading Jen's recent post about Cellique Skin Action Sebum Gel, I realized I haven't written a word about it myself, even tho I've been using it for 2 months already. So, here is my 2 cents.
Not only Jen, but Eki has done reviews for a bunch of Cellnique stuffs, so check it out, if you haven't!
Jen provided great photos of the gel itself and before-after pics too, so I don't have to bother with them LOL I don't even have a before pic anyway....Not to mention I used it on my nose only and just who wants to see pores up close, right? We just look in the mirror, and boom!
A gentle formula designed for comedogenic, oily and combination skin types to reduce both blackheads and whiteheads. This daily maintenance gel also reduces oil secretion, leaving the skin clean and clear
Treating skin problems: Blackheads, Whiteheads, Congestion, Open & closed comedone, Excessive sebum, Control oil
For all skin types.
I got mine from Wuzzyangel's blog, where 100 of her readers could ask for free samples.
So, as I mentioned, I used the sample to reduce blackheads on my nose and hopefully tighten those nasty pores. The instruction it came with said 3 drops, but I found only one was enough for my nose, it would have been a waste to squeeze out 3. I think I'm over 2 months usage now and I'm running on the last bits. Ah, I want it to last two more months! T__T I won't have money until April or May, and only $165 then too monthly LOL
The gel is easy to spread, sinks in fast and fragrance-free. After a week or two I noticed less sebum in my pores and the blackheads started to disappear. In the long run my pores remained tighter, with no black spots, like it fought away dirt and grease! Awesome!
If you strted to use it, stick with it on a daily basis! I don't recommend skipping it, as I done it for two weeks once, all my work went to vein and I could start from the beginning. However, the gel worked much faster after this hiatus (a few days only to achieve the clean state again).
If I wasn't so broken ATM, I'd buy a full size bottle immediately! I've never seen anything that promised such results to work so well!
30ml costs USD55
It's a bit steep....I don't know. Seeing how long the 3ml sample lasted for me and with how good results, I should probably made up my mind to cough out that much money.
Aaaaand....they ship internationally for FREE!!!! Just how cool is that?
