AMW Reviews: Celeteque Advanced Anti-Wrinkle Ultra-Hydrating Cleanser Light Cleansing Oil

Remember the event I attended regarding the 3 Celeteque Star Products?  If you don't remember, I reported it HERE.  Since I still have tons of moisturizers to test, and if you remember me saying how I "drink" my cleansing oils!  I am halfway done with my Bobbi Brown Cleansing Oil which leaves me to try different brands and save up the pricier one if I have more make-up on! 

That made me a smart girl right?  If you disagree, consider yourself *whipped* :P  Out of the 3, I've given Celeteque Advanced Cleansing Oil a test and used it for more than a month before I've decided I'm ready to spill the beans!

Celeteque Advanced Anti-Wrinkle 
Ultra-Hydrating Cleanser Light Cleansing Oil says ---
It's a make-up remover, ultra-hydrating cleanser and an anti-wrinkle product in one bottle.  It gently and effectively removes deep-seated dirt and impurities while maintaining the skin's natural level of moisture, instantly leaving the skin velvety soft and dewy without the grease after-feel.  It has Dual Vitamin Regenerating Complex that promotes healthy tissue regeneration, increasing elasticity and moisture content that helps firm and strengthen skin. With continued use, it improves skin smoothness and dramatically reduce fine lines in 6 weeks.

Available in 50 ml and 100ml.

AMW says ---
  • Simple clear bottle makes it easy to see how much product left.
  • Can remove eye makeup and a bit of mascara.  For a product this inexpensive, I am impressed with its make-up removing skill!
  • Leaves skin soft and supple even after using your favorite facial cleanser.
  • Helps relieve dry and itchy skin.
  • Though product instructions did not advise us to use this on the eye area, I tried using it and doesn't feel a sting!  
  • No weird scent.
  • No skin allergies or irritations after use.
  • Not available worldwide.
  • Oily-skinned individuals may find this cleansing oil too rich for their taste.
  • May still cause allergic reactions to some super sensitive skin as this product is so rich.
Proud to be Pinay! 
This local product is inexpensive and works!  I can't tell about the Anti-Wrinkle claim yet but this product is effective as not much tugging is needed.

  •  Put a few drops of the product on a cotton pad instead of cotton ball.  I find that the product gets distributed easily and you don't need a lot to cover up the pad.
  • Gently apply on face and neck and gently massage if needed.
  • Rinse off excess oil with lukewarm water and follow up with your preferred cleanser.
  • If you have very dry patches or areas on skin, apply a good amount concentrating on the dry area and leave it overnight, you'll wake up with softer skin!  I tried it on one rough spot on my elbow which works!
  • If you plan to remove eye make-up or brow powders/pencils/gels, close your eyes and do not open it until you are sure the oils have been washed off completely.
  • Different individuals may react to certain ingredients, always do a patch test first before you apply all over your face to prevent mishaps.
Will I repurchase?
Yes!  I like using this to remove my face makeup and lipstick!

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who's comfortable to put oil on their faces! :)

Where to purchase and how much?
Available in Watson's for Php199.00 (approx $4.75) for 50ml Php369.00 (approx $8.80) for 100ml

I use this to remove my 
powder foundation and blush

I used one side of the cotton pad with 3 tiny drops
and gently leave it on the eye make-up.  Gently massage and wipe off.

I forgot to take a photo but I did use this to remove my lipstick too!  

One side of my eye,
Eyeshadow, Mascara and Gel liner removed!

  4. haven't tried this cleansing oil pero I love their anti-wrinkle moisturiser, gamit ko sha as eye cream.

  5. I have this and I don't like that it's not easily washed by water (it has to be warm). But it removes makeup nga. :)

  6. Thanks for d review nikki.. wil surely try this...

  7. Nice review! I have used Celeteque's facial wash before. And I like it. I never knew they had oil cleansers already. I haven't tried oil cleansers before, but this sounds promising. :)

  8. looks nice. would like to try this. thanks for the info.

  9. Hey! Love your site! :) I've tried this, and I love it! And I have OILY skin, which became a lot more balanced out after I started using this. I don't use it as my only cleanser, instead I wash it off with a facial wash, and the effect is a feeling of deep clean.

    I've written about it too, here:
