I was recently contacted by Cellnique if I would review some products. This was the first time I have ever been asked to review something so of course I jumped at the opportunity!
Gentle Foaming Cleanser - Intensive Hydrating Oasis Gel - Skin Purifying Daytime Protection
Same order as above.
Gentle Foaming Cleanser 35.00
I loved the smell of this. It smelled like Chinese lychee flavored candies.. mmm. It made my skin feel very fresh and clean. I normally use Cetaphil as a face wash, and this definitely felt a lot better. One thing I didn't like was the bottle. It was fairly hard to squeeze out (the plastic it was made out of was firm). When I'm dead tired in the mornings, I can't be bothered to fuss over a hard to squeeze bottle! Maybe I'll pour it into something else... but besides the packaging, I really like this product.
Intensive Hydrating Oasis Gel 41.00
As you can see in the 'swatch' picture, it really is a gel. In the mornings, I use moisturizer with SPF in it so I would be using this gel at night. However, in the cold weather, I prefer a more heavy creamy moisturizer. I can see myself using this one a lot and liking it much more in the summer. It had a slight cooling effect to my skin, and when applying it my skin burned a little (not too unusual, my skin is very sensitive and usually burns when testing out a new product). It didn't have a distinct smell.
Skin Purifying Daytime Protection 32.00
I thought this would be a plain moisturizer, but to my surprise it turned out to be a tinted moisturizer. I've never used one in my life (noob!) so I was looking forward to trying this one out. It made my skin look a bit oily, so I put translucent powder (and blush) over it. I applied it with a 187.
Obviously, it makes my skin look very nice. However, I'm not very fond of the feeling of foundation on my skin but those who like tinted moisturizers should check this out. Oh, almost forgot! It has an SPF of 20 which I really liked. You can never be too protected from the sun!
I must say, I love the style and colors of the packaging. It looks so clean and classic!
I was provided with this item for no cost by the company in exchange for an honest review.
