Celeteque Dermoscience Hydration Facial Moisturizer Review
I ran out of moisturizer, saw this while browsing at Watson’s, and I thought, why not? It’s cheap, claims to be hypo-allergenic, and I thought it was cool how it was water-based, which would be great for our hot climate. The Dermoscience products seem to be a new and improved lineup of Celeteque items. It offers different product lines that target certain skin issues—there’s Hydrating, Sun Care, Brightening, Acne Solutions, Advanced Anti-Aging, and Restorative. I try to keep my skin care routine simple, but always focus on hydration and moisturization, so I’m interested in the Hydrating line. This seemed like a good choice of product to get an impression of this line.
The Dermoscience Hydration line can give you 90% softer, smoother, moisture-balanced skin in just 2 weeks.
The Celeteque Dermoscience Hydration Facial Moisturizer is dermatologist-tested, water-based and oil-free, non-comodogenic, hypoallergenic, and fragrance-free.
Ages ago, I tried the old moisturizer Celeteque had (the one in the white tube with the blue cap), and I wasn’t too impressed with it because I didn’t find it moisturizing at all. So that was one of the apprehensions I had about this new version.
The Dermoscience Hydration Facial Moisturizer has a similar consistency to that of the old moisturizer—it’s clear and gel-like, but kind of watery. The main difference of this one and the old one, based on my memory, is that this feels slightly more sticky while being freshly applied to the skin.
It doesn’t take long to get absorbed. In less than a minute, it’s dried off and no longer feels sticky at all. My face just feels softer, without any hint of oiliness, which I sometimes experience from using heaving moisturizers. I think this is great for super hot days, or nights, for that matter. I use it mostly during daytime, or during nights when the air just feels too humid.
It was a pleasant surprise too that it provided most of the hydration and moisture my dry skin needed. The very dry spots on my face get flaky and dry again 3-4 hours after applying this, but I’ve learned to apply a heavier moisturizer on just those areas.
- It’s fragrance-free.
- It doesn’t feel heavy on my skin, even outdoors.
- Makes my skin feel hydrated and soft.
- I need only a small amount for the entire face.
- So far, it hasn’t broken me out. I’ve been using it daily for about 2 weeks now.
- No noticeable increase in blackheads either (some facial care products do that to me).
- It doesn’t make my face oily at the end of the day.
- This 50ml tube is only PhP 127.
- Celeteque available at so many places.
Celeteque Dermoscience Hydration Facial Moisturizer – Dislikes:
- It’s not moisturizing enough for the few, but persistently very dry areas on my face.
This performs well for its price, in my opinions. The problem I experience with a number of drugstore moisturizers is that they’re not moisturizing enough, but this works on my dry skin. It’s a bonus that the lightweight feel of it seems perfect for our weather. Here are the other Celeteque Dermoscience Hydrating items being offered: Facial Wash, Gentle Exfoliating Facial Wash, Alcohol-free Toner, Cleansing Wipes, and Moisturizing Mist. I’d love to try the Moisturizing Mist!
