Dealing with my pesky red dots: Celeteque Acne Spot Corrector Gel and Concealer

2 Comments

I had a good experience with Celeteque Hydration Facial Moisturizer. So, I wanted to try and buy more of their stuff. Specifically their acne solutions line.

So, on our weekly mall trip, I made it a point to go to the drugstore and look for the products. I am looking for their acne spot corrector gel and their concealer that I hoped would make my pesky red dots invisible.

A quick run to the drugstore, and a bee line to the counter. I got both products!

Here are my thoughts on the items, after two weeks of daily use.

Their acne spot corrector gel is effective. I used it twice a day after washing my face and putting on toner. (my soap and toner are formulated by my dermatologist)

On the first 3 days of use, I did not see any difference on my pimple other than the pimple not swelling, and that once the gel is applied on the pimple/s it doesn’t sting. The gel also has a pleasant smell that I love! No chemical smell.

I normally use erythromycin gel for my pimples as prescribed by my dermatologist. Using erythromycin leaves the pimple redder and bigger overnight. I think it is because the erythromycin speeds up the pimple to dry and empty itself of its “head”.

So, It was a surprise for me that Celeteque’s acne spot corrector gel does not work the same way as the erythromycin gel that I am used to. Celeteque’s acne spot corrector gel minimizes the swelling on the first three days and by the fourth day you can experience mild peeling of the skin, which goes on till the seventh day then you will see the pimple would now be just a light brown spot. If the pimple is a bit big, the redness will not go away. But Celeteque’s acne spot corrector gel does not make the pimple redder (color intensity). It will just stay the same red color. I appreciated that as I am very conscious about the number of red spots on my face already.

NOT FOR FAIR SKINNED PEOPLE

So, I also tested Celeteque’s Concealer, hoping that it will hide my pesky red dots.

Sadly it was much too dark for me. Too bad they have no tester/s on display.

this is how dark the concealer is on me.

Had I known that it will be too orange-y/ dark, I would not shell out for it. (For reference, my skin is NC20-25 on MAC.) I can’t use it. Such a waste. 

Hopefully they come up with a lighter shade for their concealer, and a bigger size for their acne spot corrector gel.

Price? Celeteque’s acne spot corrector gel goes for 169php, and the Concealer 269php.
