Name: Cellnique Paramedical Skin Action Sebum Gel
Price: RM 159 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 didn’t 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’s a healing process and this only happens to very dehydrated skin. I’ve reduced my usage as per recommended by Selina but my nose still looks congested after using it for 5 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 1 pump for my entire face concentrating on my T-zone.
I have since stopped using this gel, I don't like having so much visible comedones! I have yet to read a negative review on this product though, so I might be the only person in the world that isn't wowed by it haha~ Plenty of other girls experienced good results from this best selling gel, so do be sure to check their reviews out as well ^^

The jar that I have is a sample:
Packaging: This is the first time that I’ve seen a sealed sample! Plus the label is printed onto the lid itself instead of a stick-on-label like many other brands. Imo, this is very impressive and worth mentioning!
Scent: It smells delicious, just like bananas~
Texture: Cream texture.
I applied a thick layer (finished the whole sample jar) on my face and washed it off after leaving it on for 20 minutes.
Ingredients: It’s perfect for pampering sessions as it’s full of nutrients like Papaya Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Yeast Beta Glucan, Vitamin E and Marine Collagen.
