Review: Celeteque Restorative Ultra-Lifting Concentrated Serum

While I love receiving free goodies, I am not really big on joining online contests or giveaways especially those that require likes or votes from others. :D That is the reason why I love small contests like the one previously organized by @unilab_ph and @celetequedermo. The only rule is to tweet them your favorite Celeteque product and include the hashtag #FaveCeleteque. Best answer gets to win Celeteque Ultra-Lifting Concentrated Serum.

A few weeks after the contest, I was asked for my complete mailing address because they will ship my prize being one of the winners. I was thrilled of course because I rarely, if ever, worry about wrinkles and aging and this product is obviously new to me.

Celeteque Ultra-Lifting Concentrated Serum comes in a small bottle with a crystallize dropper. Being called serum, the product itself is a clear fluid with no specks whatsoever. The 30ml bottle costs Php 899 in most department stores nationwide. I only use a few drops on my forehead, under my eyes and my neck and spread it evenly using my fingertips. I use this twice a day and have been using this for around a month already.

Product description:
CELETEQUE DermoScience™ Restorative Ultra-Lifting Concentrated Serum has Advanced Peptide Complex that boosts collagen synthesis and improves skin barrier function. The Oceagen and Sodium Hyaluronate Moisturizers effectively improve skin elasticity and ?rmness while reducing fine lines.


What I like about the product:
I love that I get to test this product for free. LOL! But kidding aside, I love that this product is easy to use. No waiting to remove the product off the face, no messy preparation. Just apply it and after a few seconds, you can no longer see the trace that you applied anything to your face. The serum is absorbed by the skin immediately which is quite beneficial for me since I am always running late for work. The product doesn’t leave trace the eye can see, but one can feel that the product is there because of the slight tightness on the skin. However, that feeling fades after a short while. It doesn’t make my skin itchy nor make my skin dry either.

Based on the product label, the serum has advanced peptide complex that boosts collagen synthesis and improves skin barrier function, leading to improved skin elasticity and firmness and visibly reduced fine lines and wrinkles. It also contains oceagen and sodium hyaluronate, moisturizers that provide intense skin hydration.

A few months after use, I notice some improvements on my forehead. Nothing dramatic but the appearance of my “laugh lines” improves a bit. It is no longer as prominent as before. I believe long term use will yield good results.

The 30ml bottle may be a bit steep especially for stingy persons like me but then, a little goes a long way. I have been using mine for around a month already but I still have a little more than one half bottle left. I think one bottle lasts for a couple of months when used twice a day.
What I do not like about the product:
I do not like this product’s smell. Though it doesn’t smell too strong, there is something in it that makes me want to crinkle my nose at times. Thankfully, the scent doesn’t last too long.

Will I repurchase?
