I was sent these products by Selina from Cellnique for reviewing purposes.

Cellnique is a skincare brand based in Malaysia but will ship worldwide. All their
prices are in US Dollars.
I have never tried this brand or knew about it before but I did a Google search and it looks very popular. There's a variety of products on the website to treat all different types of skin and common problems a lot of us share.
The brand to me looks very pricey and I would say it comes under what you would call 'high-end' but the question is do they do what they say?
Cellnique's website is easy to use and all their products have their ingredients written clearly.

My Skin- I'm very fair and I do have a good amount of freckles and a few discolouration marks which also comes with dark circles like a thirsty vampire.

I was sent two full sized products of Contour Complex C , Derma Brightening Complex and a mini sample of Derma Whitening Essence.

The products come with a quality seal inside so you get a piece of mind that it hasn't been contaminated which I think all skincare should have, even though their boxed and if not to have one of those clear plastic seals.

*Works on skin discoloration, dull and uneven skin tone

*Rich moisturizing arributes for skin softening
*Promoting a firmer skin texture
*Antioxidant protection for the skin"

What I Think....

Packaging- In a medicine dropper form which I think is very precise and hygienic.

Texture- Quite thin and very easy to gently massage around your face. It does go slightly sticky at first but it does dry and soaks into your skin quickly. So applying your moisturiser or SPF etc straight away after is fine. It looks like Maple Syrup but obviously the colour doesn't come out like that on you and appears clear.

Scent- Again it actually smells a little like Maple Syrup. :)

Results- I've been using this for around two weeks, using this day and night with my skincare regime and I can tell you that my skin has visibly improved. My complexion looks a lot fresher and even and my dark spots and blemishes have faded, they are still very much visible but they have indeed got lighter. Obviously prominent freckles and beauty marks remain the same. :)
My skin has been left smooth and my makeup glides on particularly better. Sometimes just sometimes you do get what you pay for.

Contour C Complex 24% Vitamin C which is $64.00 USD & approx £41.00 GBP

What They Say....


Contain high concentration of vitamin C to help promote the regeneration of connective tissue through the stimulation of fibroblast. Regular use will dramatically help reduce the signs of aging, fine lines and boost a firmer and smoother skin.


*Reduces signs of ageing (fine lines and wrinkles) & an Antioxidant. "

What I Think......

Packaging-Same as the product above, medicine dropper form.

Texture- Looks thick but goes on and applies like water so it's very easy to apply which I dot around my eye area and blend in gently, it also has a milky orange tone to it which doesn't show up on the skin.

Scent- Like a lighter version of pure orange juice.

Results- Now what I can tell you is that I'm a smoker and yes I do want to eventually give up, everyone knows it's not good for the skin. As of yet I don't have any prominent fine lines, obviously teeny expression ones show up when pulling certain faces which everyone has. With the ingredients that this eye treatment has I do feel that it will help to prevent ones in the future. I don't think I've ever seen a brand with a content of that much Vitamin C. My problem is of course dark circles but this certain product doesn't say anything about that, so I'm going to try this with my Clinique All About Eyes Rich eye cream and see how that goes.

To be honest I do think it's a too hefty price tag and I would prefer a eye product to be able to care for multiple problems (dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles) and there's a whole bunch out there that do that at a fraction of the price.


  1. Very interesting. I am trying out some Cellinique products myself and I must say I'm impressed. I like that serum you tried. I think I might actually have to purchase that one for myself!
    BTW I quit smoking 10 years ago. I smoked 2 packs a day and I used Zyban (Welbtrin) to quit. Worked like a charm for me, and I was going to all those goth nightclubs at the time and was still able to kick it! Hope you can too one day!

  2. I have this preconceived notion that skincare products that come with medicine droppers have to be good.

    And damn, now I want maple syrup.

  3. Elvira- I'm thinking the same and I'm definitely considering to purchase too. Well done for quitting and keeping it up! Sounds like a really difficult circumstance, so that stuff must be good. :D

    SilhouetteScreams- Haha I've always had that in my head too just looks totally looks clinical. :)
