Beauty Review: Cellnique Intensive Hydro Repair Elixir

Friday, April 11, 2014

Hello ladiess I am going to share with you another hit item, this Intensive Hydro Repair Elixir from Cellnique ain’t the normal serum you see… There are made of Snail Mucin…. Snail?? Yes the smooth gel also known as snail slime that attached to their body gonna make you face looking beautiful!! Believe it!! Few years ago when I visited Korea snail slime is very hit that time.. Mask, moisturiser and serum are all made from this ingredient. When I back to Malaysia there were not much brand offering this even the Korea brand also doesn’t carry much product with snail slime.

Cellnique Intensive Hydro9

Before I move on further snail lime is similar to snail mucin or snail mucus just different phrase used. Like I mention earlier this serum made from highly concentrated snail slime is something unique to me. Together with hyaluronic acid, the formulation helps to regenerate and repair skin cells, restoring skin to its original healthy state. It also ensure your skin is properly hydrated and enhances moisture retention capacity of skin. Imagine you skin contain small water bottle to store all the moisture you need the entire day or night. For prolong usage, user can see a vibrant, firmer, and smoother appearance.

Alright Hyaluronic acid not a new term if you are my loyal reader. This powerful water binding agent could give up to 1000 times more hydration leaving a radiant and supple young looking skin.

It look like any typical serum I had in my stash with the pinch nozzle for easy application without worrying pouring too much serum. On thing I like about the packaging is the bottle are made from plastic.

The glossy white colour finishing look like a high end product and I actually thought it was glass for a moment. I always love bottle made from plastic because I can be clumsy when I’m in rush and it’s so travel friendly with it’s lightweight bottle.

Texture & Scent

I love the smooth runny texture of the serum. When I first apply it on my face it feel slightly sticky but after 1minute or so the stickiness is gone. It leave my skin feeling fresh and light without any greasiness at all. It does have a light pleasant scent but when apply on my face I can’t barely smell anything, almost close to scentless.

How to Use

After applying your toner, squeeze 1-2 drop onto your palm and smooth over your face & neck using circular motion. You can apply it day & night.

Cindy’s Thought

I only use it during the night time as day time i prefer less product so I usually skip serum in the day. i have been using this serum for almost 2week now. This serum feels very light on my skin. It does produce just sufficient moisture for me which I love because I don’t feel there is an additional layer of serum on my skin. So if you want a more moisturised skin you need to use you day or night cream after that especially if you have dry skin.

I don’t feel much on the wrinkle reduction maybe because I don’t have visible wrinkle yet. *Feeling blessed for that*. I do feel my skin feel brighter and less oily when I wakeup the next day if I skip my night cream. Using this serum alone does not dries out my face also does not over moisturised my face. I can’t quite put it in word, it’s like not quite there yet for me.

Cellnique Intensive Hydro Serum review

As my skin has lot of acne scar because I have been sleeping late I can’t resist to not pop them. I try not to pop them but still I pop one or two acne…now there is scar left on my face, I am guilty as charged. This serum does help to lighten some of my acne scar but not immediately. Well I am happy for that already but I hope it can do more as what it claimed.

I just hope this serum can give more in term of hydration and wrinkle reduction than just lighten my scar. Perhaps if you have oily skin this might be for you as it is really light and non greasy at all.
