Cellnique Paramedical

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.


  1. i'm the same way with foundations and tinted moisurizers...i just don't like how they feel on my face! good review :)


  2. Great review! That tinted moisturizer looks great on you. I hate the look of those things so I always have to cut the grease look with powder. How was the staying power?

  3. This company got in touch with me months ago but never sent the products. Not impressed.

  4. Ahhh your skin is beautiful! That cleanser sounds like something I'd like to try. I usually use Purpose and I love it but I'm always up for something new!

    P.S. I just did a post on Sue Devitt foundation. Come check it out! :)

  5. I feel the same way about foundations and tinted moisturizers, I prefer translucent powder too, but I haven't found one that is my HG powder yet, which one do you use?? I like the blush you have is it the Azalea Blossom???

  6. Oh my! This looks great on you, you have amazing skin - I'm not jealous *sniff* - I really wish I could afford things like this to give them a try, I'm always keen to try new things. The cleanser sounds really nice and something I'm mostly likely to try.

  7. Thanks girls! Marcela, I love Rimmel's Stay Matte powder. And yes, I used AB. Good eye :)

  8. Great review Clara. I am so jealous of your skin, its gorgeous! Azalea Blossom looks great on you too.
