Product Review: Celeteque DermoScience Makeup Remover/Cleansing Facial Wipes



I'm very particular with my skin regimen. My routine is quite simple, but I make sure to follow it religiously. Here's how a normal day looks like. 

Morning

Acne Aid Facial Bar 
Human Nature Tomato Toner 
*followed by my usual makeup 


Since night is the best time for my skin to rejuvenate, I have more steps in my night regimen.

Acne Aid Facial Bar 
Human Nature Tomato Toner 
Kiehl's ACAI Damage Repair Serum
Celeteque Advance Anti-Age Night Moisturizer 
Eye Cream (St. Ive's, Celeteque or Garnier) 

The regimen has kept my skin healthy and clear, together with twice a week facial scrubs (St. Ive's Apricot of Human Nature Black Rice Scrub) and monthly facial cleaning. But all the doctors and skin experts I've met said the same thing: never go to bed without removing your makeup. Indeed, calling it a night without making sure your face is free of dirt and makeup is the perfect formula for the next morning's disaster. 

Thankfully, there are a hundred and one ways to remove your makeup and make sure your skin is clean and your pores are not clogged before sleeping. There are cleansing oils (Shu Uemura's Cleansing Oil is a top choice albeit quite pricey), OTC makeup removers from L'Oreal, Maybelline and even local brands like Ever Bilena, organic ones like Ilog Maria's Cleansing Milk and the very convenient cleansing wipes/cloths.

One of the brands I've tried is Celeteque DermoScience's Hydration Makeup Remover and Cleansing Facial Wipes (Php 160.00). Although it's ideal to still wash your face with water after using makeup removers, having wipes beside your bed is a good and convenient alternative when you are too tired or in my case last night, too drunk to wash your face (it's my company's Christmas Party so I'm excused, thank you :D)




My notes:

Smells fresh and clean 
Soft on skin 
Non-drying and gentle even to sensitive skin 
Very effective in removing stubborn makeup like eye liners and long wear lipstick
A sheet can clean the whole face, but a second one will finish the job

I wore very heavy, artistic makeup last night and it's the best time to test this product. Pardon the photo, but here's what I removed from my face after a long night of partying. That's a lot don't you think so?


And just to give you an idea how much makeup I have on, see this photo and take note that I haven't even started with contouring and blush application at this stage. 

As I've said, it's still best to wash your face with water and cleanser of your choice after using makeup removers. Not only that ensures a face that is free from traces of oils and chemicals, but also the best way to feel refreshed and clean before bedtime. 

I hope you can also share your beauty regimen, would love to hear how you keep your face clean before hitting the sack! :)

And oh, have a really Merry Christmas! :)

  1. Astig yung makeup mo! :) Did you do your own makeup?

    I am so OC about cleaning my face. I have a whole cleanse-tone-moisturize-eye cream routine, but at the very least I cleanse using Shu Uemura oil because it just melts everything right off in a jiffy.
