Dry skin has been one of my biggest problems aside from acne so every time I go to the mall, I really scrutinize the products on the face care section to find the best remedy for my dry skin.
They say toner is really the key so I tried tons of toners for my face but nothing really worked. I tried Eskinol Lemon that says it controls oil of the skin, prevents acne without drying out, I tried the derma toners like Porcelana toner that gives you a korean porcelain skin daw. I tried Glycolic toners from Shadylab but jeez, they all dry out my skin like hell.
But everything changed when I came across Celeteque’s Hydration toner and Celeteque Facial Wash. I tried these products by buying their travel kit from Watson’s for only P149, it includes mini Hydration toner bottle, mini Hydration facial wash tube and mini facial moisturizer.
It’s looks so cute with the mini tubes and bottles and it’s price isn’t that scary for a student like me. I tried their small travel kit because ayoko naman na maginvest sa new face products and feel bad kapag nalaman kong hindi pala ako hiyang noh.
I tried the toner and the facial wash for a month. I didn’t use the moisturizer yet because I wanted to focus on the effect of the facial wash and toner first and man, this toner is a magic!
My skin turned soft, yung dryness level ng skin ko swiftly shifted into a soft baby skin kind (hindi ito joke). It actually works like magic because it balances the oil of my skin, it doesn’t make my skin overly oily or overly dry — it’s perfectly moist and soft.
How to use? Just wash your face with the facial wash and then dry it up with a clean towel before applying the toner using a cotton. Do this twice a day, morning after you wake up and evening before you go to bed.
My skin is not the artista skin that’s pore-less and super mega smooth so if my selfie doesn’t impress you then sorry lol!
But for normal girls like me, I really recommend Celeteque’s Facial Wash 100mL (P135) and Hydration Toner Alcohol Free 125mL (P129.75) . About the Celeteque Facial Moisturizer, I think it’s just optional because the wash and the toner already controls your skin’s oil level, no need for the moisturizer in my opinion.
It’s all effective in making your skin soft and moisturized yet its price won’t hurt you especially if you’re just a student like me na walang budget for friggin’ Cetaphil packs, Laneige or whatsoever.
I’m just not sure if this Celeteque Hydration series helps in preventing acne breakouts, it’s for me to find out, I guess. But all in all, this has been the best face care product I’ve tried in terms of quality and price.
UPDATE 01/14/2019: If you’re suffering acne breakouts, I won’t recommend this Celeteque set because it’s too mild to fight acnes.
Will buy again? Yes.
Will recommend? Yes.
