Cellnique Paramedical Skin Action Sebum Gel


(Source: cellnique.com/)

Name: Cellnique Paramedical Skin Action Sebum Gel
Price: RM 169 for 30 ml

Description: Phyto bio-engineering formulation gel for all skin types to reduce both blackheads and whiteheads on affected skin area without painful extraction. This daily maintenance gel also reduces oil secretion, leaving the skin clear and producing smooth visible results within 10 days of application.

Packaging: White opaque plastic bottle with a pump dispenser. I prefer plastic over glass, klutzy me is always knocking over glass bottles.


Scent: Light minty scent.

Texture: This clear gel glides on smoothly. It feels a tad minty and cooling, very refreshing especially in this hot weather.


It absorbs really quickly. Although it has mattifying properties, I did not experience any tightness when using it.

I was quite worried because I experienced an increase in visible whiteheads whilst using this gel. Selina, the Cellnique PR, allayed my fears when she mentioned that it is a healing process and this only happens to very dehydrated skin. I have reduced my usage as per recommended by Selina but my nose still looks congested after using it for five weeks.


I always thought that I have more whiteheads comparatively. This before and after picture shows that I have plenty of both white and blackheads *ewww*

I also think it helps in reducing breakouts as I experience fewer eruptions after introducing this gel to my skin care routine. One bottle can last a while since I only use it sparingly, about one pump for my entire face concentrating on my T-zone.

I have since stopped using this gel - I do not like having so much visible comedones! I have yet to read a negative review on this product though, so I must be the only person in the world that is not wowed by it. Plenty of other girls experienced good results from this best selling gel, so do be sure to check their reviews out as well.

Can't believe this gave you more whiteheads, it did the total opposite. The repair masque looks like a great product! Thanks for sharing!

I've used the Skin Action Sebum Gel on ripened whiteheads (my fingers were itching to pop it but I resisted the urge) and they did go away in about 2-3 days much to my surprise. The gel also did make the blackheads nestled in my pores on my nose pop out. So after one of those blackhead mask thingies my nose looked much clearer. This was after about 1 month of continuous usage. Overall not bad a product I would say.

I have tried out the Cellnique Sebum gel a few years and I really liked it! It made my skin softer and the blackheads/whiteheads easier to push out (gross, I know).

But I hated that I can't get it readily in Australia...I always had to get whenever I went back to Malaysia.

And I couldn't stand how exxy it was for a small bottle!
