A couple of weeks ago I received in the mail a couple of skin products from Cellnique to try out. So after some days of using them here are my thoughts:
The Skin Action Sebum Gel is for all skin types to reduce blackheads and whiteheads, and to reduce oil secretion. This product is not really suited to my skin as I don't really have problems in this area, but I can have a bit of an oily t-zone (mainly in Summer in the hot weather). So, I can't really comment on it's effect on blackheads and whiteheads, and I didn't really notice any difference in sebum - however, it has been very hot here in Queensland lately so I'm not sure any product at all would affect the sweaty oiliness you get each day here. I also have to admit I am very lazy when it comes to skincare and usually only cleanse and moisturise, any other steps in my skincare usually get forgotten about!
If you would like to try a sample of this product you can register over at their website and mention http://www.yourcheekymonkey.blogspot.com/ when you are asked 'Where did you hear about us' (T&C: Offer 50 samples and ends on the 16th March 2011 with sample delivery within 4 – 6 weeks. Substitutions of sample will be made if sample is out-of-stock).
The Intensive Hydrating Oasis Gel is described as a highly concentrated aloe vera based skin soothing and calming formulation. This product didn't have any instructions on how to use it at all on the packet/bottle or any sort of insert, so I had to go to their website to find out more. You actually use it as a moisturizer after cleansing and toning (I assumed it was more of a treatment gel than an everyday product). I liked this product, it was nice to use in the Qld heat as its a gel, especially after a day in the sun. I'm not sure about winter though when I do prefer more of a comforting cream.
Both these products had a very light gel texture and a nice pleasant smell. When on the skin the products soaked right in and didn't leave any oiliness behind.
