Product Review: Celeteque Acne Spot Corrector Gel

     Hello there loves! Hope you're all doing fine :D I'm excited to make this review because after two weeks of using religiously, I can attest to its effectiveness in combating those painful reddish pimple and dark spots or pimple marks. This is my first spot treatment to date since I just let a pimple or two subside by itself before. I have this bad habit of pricking those nasty zits on my cheeks and chin where they always pop out if the size is still the same after a week. I'm glad that after so many years of just letting pimples to come out of my face before and after my monthly period already found a solution.

     Thanks to Celeteque DermoScience for bringing this product line. Although I haven't tried the Acne Solutions line, I'm sure they will give good results if used consistently. I suffered from acne breakouts last month and I'm considering two spot corrector that time. Since Celeteque is a trusted brand when it comes to skin care that's dermatologist-tested and hypoallergenic, I gave it a try and satisfied with the results. 

      I bought this Celeteque Acne Spot Correcting Gel three weeks ago and applied on existing cystic acne and new ones. Patience is a virtue, I'm not expecting this to make my pimple disappear overnight but in some cases or depending the size it can make a big difference on the size of a pimple after 12 hours. My son accidentally deleted the photo of my angry pimps that I wanted to show you- bummer! But I swear this product works!!! Now here's my take on Acne spot corrector gel, click read more to see my full review.

How Celeteque DernoScience ACNE SOLUTIONS Acne Spot Corrector Gel Works

~Uses beta hydroxy acid (BHA) combined with poly hydroxy acid (PHA), which aids in exfoliating dead skin cells and helps in diminishing pimples and other acne imperfections to achieve clear smooth skin.
~Contains Lilac leaf cell culture extract that helps reduce sebum production to prevent future acne breakouts. 
~Has a biotechnological complex that acts as a natural astringent and sebum control. 
~There is significant acne reduction by as much as 80% in just one day.

Celeteque Acne Spot Corrector Gel
What I like:
  • The price- very affordable.
  • Comes in a handy tube that fits in my palm.
  • I can control the amount of product coming out of this nozzle type of tube.
  • A little goes a long way.
  • Has a medicinal smell but tolerable.
  • There's a bit of stinging upon application, an indication that the product is working on the affected area.
  • Doesn't burn or peel the site where I applied it.
  • Reduced the size of my pimple after 12 hours and gone after 2-3 days.
  • Has batch, manufacturing and expiry date stamped on the box and the tube.
What I don't like:
  • Sometimes it's out of stock.
Will I repurchase? Yes! It's back-up worthy :D

Recommendations:
     I give this a 4.5/5 rating. If you have time, use it more than twice a day to speed up the healing process of your zits. Since I'm always at home I make sure to apply a thin layer three or four times a day depending on the size of my pimples. I'm happy that when I wake up the next day it reduced the swelling, redness and size. If there's a sign that a new pimple is coming out, I immediately apply this gel and voila! I can bid my pimples goodbye :D

     Do you use spot corrector treatment for your pimple? Any Celeteque users out there? 

Good Times!~

  2. haven't tried using an acne spot corrector... but I'm a celeteque user :) Cheers!

    ReplyDelete
  3. @Judy- Hi there, yup pede i apply after moisturizer. Basta be sure to let the moisturizer absorbed by your skin first. Or if you want just use the moisturizer on parts of your face na walang pimples then sa pimple itself saka ka mag-apply ng gel. Hope this helps :D

  4. @Andy Cuevas- Oh, you're a Celeteque user, what skin care product ginagamit mo? If you love their products I'm sure you'll love this too :)

  7. @Ms. Kath I'm using the Hydration Facial Wash and Moisturizer for almost a year now... it's working great.. haven't had any major skin breakouts :) although i still have problems with blackheads/whiteheads on the nose area! do you have any suggestions?

    ReplyDelete
  8. @Hazel- :D let me know how you find it.

    ReplyDelete
  9. @Rae- yup, matipid din gamitin kaya sulit yung 169.

    @Andy- oh i see, it's nice to know na hiyang ka sa products nila. About the blackheads/whiteheads thingy IMO mahirap iwasan specially if lagi ka naka-makeup everyday. So better use non-comedogenic products talaga. saka wash your face regularly para di ma trap yung dirt sa face. Ako kahit bihira lumabas may black and white heads pa din. Di ko din maiwasan. I just use toners like yung All organics. Kasi sa nose area naman ako madami nun so hindi ko na lang masyado pinapansin.

    I don't want naman to recommend a product na hindi ko pa nagamit. Yaan mo, I'll make a research and try products that will lessen or totally prevent blackheads and whiteheads sa face :D

  11. hi kath. its my first time to use the acne spot corrector gel. effective ba tlga? kasi depress nako sa mga pimples ko. sobra dami tas dami rin dark spots. meron ako gnagamit na soap after putting tha gel. defensil yung brand nag da-dry din sa face tapos yung gel. sana effective to.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Nerza- Hi there, Try this. it's effective but you have to use it religiously :)

    Anonymous- Hi there. Yes, it's effective for me. But Patience lang talaga kasi it takes time to heal depending on the size of the pimples. I experienced different degree or level of effectiveness with this. Pag malaki talaga yung pimple na parang matigas tapos wala naman redness of pus, matagal talaga nasa 1 week of religious use. Saka depende din sa skin e, minsan yung effective sakin hindi effective sa iba. It's always trial and error. Hope this helps ;)

  13. Nice review. I will try this product.

    Anyway I just want to say I like your blog. There's a lot going on. I am a blogger also. Keep it up.

  14. Hi there. I was using 4 products of celeteque and some pimples are coming out and I using this about more than 3 weeks. So far so bad. Should I stop using this and go to the dermatologist?

    ReplyDelete
  15. I using celeteque more than 3 weeks and as far as it goes, some pimples are coming out. Do you think I should stop using this product?

    ReplyDelete
  16. @Anonymous- since you're using the products for more than 3 weeks now and nothing good happened, it's better to consult a dermatologist so he/she can assess your skin condition. Thank you for letting us know that this product doesn't agree with your skin.

    ReplyDelete
  17. good thing I stopped by your blog. 1/2 weeks of healing process using this product is not bad ha. ill definitely try this. I have been using this azelaic cream provided by my derma is not really effective which I paid for 500php. very frustrating.

    ReplyDelete
  18. What a pain. Acne. I hate it. I feel very sad when I look at my picture. I've had acne for more than four years now. I have treated under skin pimple for a long time, but I don't see any difference. I'm hoping that one day, I will be free from it.

  19. i am also a celeteque user SUNCARE... effective nga at di dry ang face. I want to use SPOT CORRECTOR GEL kasi may mga spots parin yong fce ko gawa ng pimples... HMM MISS kATH, ilang weeks mo nakita ang improvements? -Kathy Kath Kate (KKK my nick name ^^)

    ReplyDelete
  20. @Anonymous- Yup, this product is effective and intense on small bumps and pimples just be patient applying and you'll see a difference.

    @Amelia- Aside from what you've said, acne can also lower once self-esteem. I know this can be very frustrating for others but with proper skin care treatment this can be prevented and healed. Patience is always the key.

    @Anonymous- thank you for sharing your fave Celeteque skin care product. As for the spot gel, I've seen the improvement as early as 2 weeks for minor dark spots. I applied the gel day and night. Hehe!, thank you for mentioning my nicknames except for Kate. Kath or Kathy will do :)

  21. oh our nickanames wre almost the same... "Kitty-KATHY-KATE.."
    im cathlene jane nacua.. <3

    my clasm8 recommended celeteque SUNCARE moisturizer, at binili ko naman.. nung nakita ko ang blog mo, natuwa ako kasi celeteque rin yong ginamit mo. effective nga itong acne spot corrector gel. 3 days after nakita ko ang pagka-iba ng mga alaga ko haha.. thank you talaga dito... uhm, yong mga spots gawa ng pimples, mawawala nga po ba talaga nito? and how many days pa kaya? :).

    -more info po ha, love your page.^_^

    ReplyDelete
  22. @Kitty Jane Nacua- Hello, hihi nakakatuwa naman we have same nicknames. btw, yes effective yung product to reduce the size and even flatten the pimples pero sa marks naman may celeteque product din na specially formulated para dun. Yung dark spots corrector naman yun. Haven't tried it though. meron kasi pimples na hindi nag-iiwan ng marks pag na heal na, meron naman ibang pasaway na grabe sa itim or yun nga may scars pa pag nag heal na. You can try QUICK FX pimple eraser, I'm using this to spot treat naman yung blemishes and dark spots :)

  23. Thanks Ms. Kath for this very informative blogs especially about celeteque. saw this topic few days ago i bought the acne spot corrector last Saturday. it really works.:) will just note nga always ung "What I don't like: Sometimes it's out of stock." considering kami ni hubby ang gumagamit..maybe next time i will hoard! hahahaha

  24. @Ynah Aniceto- Hello Ynah :) Thank you so much for the kind words. I'm happy na nakatulong yung post ko about Celeteque. Naku, yun nga ang solution sa isang product pag laging OOS, mag hoard. Saka pag sale sa watsons minsan mas mura pa kaya sarap mag-hoard :)

  25. hi, can you recommend some make-up brands, like foundation or mineral powder that are non comodegenic or oil free? that is affordable too :)

  26. @Anonymous- Hello there. I highly recommend Virginia Olsen Minerals for mineral makeup. It's affordable and very suitable for sensitive skin. They have the greentea line which is good in keeping oilies at bay. If you want liquid foundation and other kinds of makeup for sensitive skin check Snoe Beauty.

  30. @Anonymous- That's good to hear na ok sayo yung celeteque. About the dark spots, medyo matagal lang talaga mag lighten but what I'm using is QUICK FX pimple eraser. Meron din yung celeteque na dark spot corrector but haven't tried it pa.

    ReplyDelete
  53. @sherlline lim- hello there, my apologies but I got confused with your question dear. I haven't tried the acne cleansing gel pa. This acne gel is a spot corrector. I also haven't tried using the hydration facial wash but based on my the products, I presume you have to use the acne cleansing gel during breakouts and the hydration facial wash naman is for everyday use. Hope you can comment back so that we can clarify both. thanks

    ReplyDelete
  54. Wow! This is exactly what I need. Having breakouts lately due to stress and my pimples are popping out like crazy on face. Great review! Would purchase this product anytime soon! :)

    Replies
    1. Hi this gel is not for ligthening or whitening of dark marks. It only tame or prevents pimples from developing. Or if you have existing pimples it will heal it faster. About the the dark marks, celeteque also have a corrector for that but I haven't tried it yet. For dark marks, try using iWhite Korea whitening face cream. But if it's stubborn, you need to buy a concentrated dark mark corrector. You can also opt for diamond peel but it's expensive coz you need more than 5 session to see the results.
