Cellnique Advanced Bio Renewal Serum

Cellnique Advanced Bio Renewal Serum is an off-white/yellowy-coloured cream, fairly light in texture, that absorbs easily into the skin. I've been using this serum under my moisturiser for about three weeks and I'm quite enjoying it. It dries really quickly, so it doesn't really slow down my routine. I haven't tried it on its own with makeup, but with moisturiser on top, it provides a good base for foundation and concealer. My skin has cleared up a fair bit in the last few weeks (thank goodness!), but I can't say if this product is the reason, or another, or maybe a combination of products. My skin is looking slightly firmer and more toned, although the fine lines under my eyes, while not terribly pronounced, haven't improved overall. My skin tone looks more even, as before I was quite blotchy. This product has a bit of a strangle smell; not really like a fragranced cream, more so of a slight medicinal aroma. I like the pump action dispenser because it keeps the product sealed in so it's not exposed, and I'm not wasting the serum, as it comes out in a measured dose. Overall, a good serum that I will continue to use until it's finished.
Cellnique Contour De-Puffy Jewel
"With its unique combination of Acetyl Tetrapeptide Gold Dipeptide and Rhodochrosite Extract, this formulation lifts away eye puffiness and dark circles by increasing blood circulation and providing deep moisturizing around the eye area. Designed with a SPF level of 15 it protects skin from those harmful ageing UVA and UVB rays.
Reduces puffiness and dark circles
Minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Strengthens and regenerates skin tissues
Soothes, softens, and hydrates the delicate eye-area skin
Sun protection, SPF15"
Cellnique Contour De-Puffy Jewel is a clear gel that feels great being applied; very cooling and soothing. It takes a little while to absorb into the under eye area, but this is not a problem for me, as I apply this first, then apply my serum and moisturiser, and by the time I've done that, my skin has soaked it up. I am really impressed with the performance of this 'Jewel'. I have noticed a significant reduction in puffiness and dark circles within a few minutes of putting this on (which makes subsequent makeup application a lot easier, because I don't have to use as much under eye concealer to cover the dark circles!). Again, this comes in a handy pump dispenser, so the product is not exposed to the air, and you don't have to scrape any out with your fingertips. I found that one push dispenses enough product for both eyes, as a little goes a long way. This also leaves my skin soft and well-hydrated, but I didn't see much difference in relation to my fine lines. Overall, I am very happy with this product, and will continue to use it until it's finished.
