Celeteque Hydration Facial Moisturizer: thankful for this find


Since the cold months are here, I noticed something different. My skin is dryer than the usual. On my mind I was thinking finally, a rest from oily-ness! Maybe my pimples would be minimized. *wishful thinking…

But no, three weeks later, my skin felt like sand paper.

On my scheduled derma visit, I asked my derma about my sandpaper skin.

I was told to use a facial moisturizer, I was skeptic because I might get more pimples! I used to have a lot of products as part of my regimen. Hmmm… must not forget to write about my acne journey/products I used before. 

I have used moisturizers before and honestly, they sometimes felt thick, and too much for the humid climate we have. I was advised to use Cetaphil facial moisturizer. So, off I got to the nearest drugstore and proceeded to get a moisturizer. When, the bill came up. My jaw hit the floor. The Cetaphil facial moisturizer (250ml) is priced at 700+php. After shelling out for the derma treatment plus some derma made medicines, I am not going to shell out that much. Because if I did, I might as well give up my lunch for a week.

RC Celeteque Hydration Facial Moisturizer

I looked at the counters and saw Celeteque Hydration Facial Moisturizer.

I hurriedly looked at the price. For 50ml it goes for 120php. Not bad.

I quickly took photos of the two products side by side with clear close ups of the ingredients and hurried back to my derma, explaining my dilemma to my derma. It took 10 mins of waiting and yes, I was given the Go signal to swap the prescribed brand to Celeteque.

So, I used it twice a day. And googled about the Celeteque brand. I learned that it is made by Unilab, a local brand and they actually made specific celeteque lines to address different needs of people’s skin! I even took their skin analyzer test.  Take the test for yourself here. 

I have been using the moisturizer for a week now. My skin is not as rough as last week. Doesn’t feel as dry as before!

It did not give me a breakout. My pimple population stayed the same. Lols. And it also a gel type moisturizer, does not feel thick or sticky. That factor is a major plus for me.

I’m happy about it. And currently contemplating on getting more of their products.

Provided my derma allows me.

  1. I’m hesitant to use moisturizer too, same here my face felt like sand paper with little unripe pimples. Sounds that the celeteque is good. Too bad for me because instead of going to derma, I just buy tons of products and do the trial and error. I tried celeteque toner but it’s bad for my skin since it has alcohol, though they have alcohol free toner naman.

    I am no dermatologist, and my skin also goes haywire from time and time again…. but here is what I learned from my derma and countless trial and error ways (like you do).

    Weather changes play a huge part in our skin’s condition.the colder climate will dry out our skin, and hotter climate causes skin to be oilier than the usual. Tiny pimples can be caused by an irritating ingredient in a product you use. (ie, toothpaste, shampoo) Pay attention to where the pimples are concentrated. (ie, forehead, mouth…etc) To pinpoint possible culprits.

    Don’t use harsh medications (ie benzoyl peroxide in high dose/percentage), I made that mistake and paid for it dearly by having brown spots on my face for weeks! (turns out I burned my skin, sa galit ko sa pimple!)

    lastly, do you take medications? (ie vitamin B), vitamin B causes breakouts.But not immediately. about two weeks. *learned this the hard way as I took a lot of vitamin B.

    I will post about my acne journey:the products I used throughout the years.
    Maybe you could learn from my experience.

    Have a nice weekend!
