AMW Reviews: Celeteque Brightening Multi-Benefit BB Cream with SPF15

Happy Thursday everyone!  I am happy to share another BB Cream find!  I haven't been trying out much BB creams in the market since I found my favorites --- Skin 79 VIP Gold BB Cream and

Both are great and I am very contented with the mentioned BB Creams, but given the chance to find a good BB Cream that delivers minus the price tag...why not coconut? :D

Recently, I got to try Celeteque Dermoscience Multi-Benefit BB Cream with SPF15.  It promises light coverage, moisturizing and pore tightening properties with SPF15.  That's good enough for me for daily use!




The packaging of Celeteque's BB Cream reminded me of Myra Vitaglow Tinted Moisturizer which is made from the same company by the way.


Celeteque says ---
CELETEQUE DermoScience™ Brightening Multi-benefit BB Cream works as both moisturizer and make-up base.  It brightens your complexion, tightens pores, and moisturizes wile providing light coverage.  The cream has:
  • BioWhite to help reduce wrinkles and lighten dark spots.
  • Bobenefity which provides brightening benefits.
  • Laricyl to immediately minimize pores
  • Silica for absorbing excess sebum
  • SPF 15 for daily sunscreen protection from UVA/UVB rays

AMW says ---
Pros
  • Simple tube packaging.
  • Price.
  • Lightweight.
  • Feels very natural on skin.
  • Moisturizing but never oily.
  • Gives minimal coverage, can reduce the appearance of skin redness.
  • Creates a nice base prior to foundation application.
  • Scent is very minimal. 
  • No skin irritations or allergic reactions.
  • Has SPF15.

Cons
  • One shade available only.
  • Applying too much may cause white cast with flash photography.
  • Oily skinned individuals may need to use an oil control primer underneath.

Overall
Celeteque Brightening Multi-Benefit BB Cream comes with SPF15, very lightweight and smooth texture.  This BB Cream can cover up skin redness and even out skin tone.  As a makeup base, this doesn't control much oil but it gives a smooth base for easy foundation application.

Tips
from Celeteque
  • Apply CELETEQUE DermoScience™ Brightening Multi-benefit BB Cream all over the face and neck as a moisturizer and make-up base.
from AMW
  • I find it best applied using clean fingers with downward motion.
  • Less is more, concentrate application on the center of your face spreading outwards.
  • Celeteque Brightening Multi-Benefit BB Cream is best applied after skin care then finish with your choice of foundation or concealer.
  • Apply your favorite face sunblock before BB Cream application.
  • Primers are also applied before BB Cream application.
Will I repurchase?
Yes!

To whom do I recommend this to?
Works best for normal/dry and combination skin.  Oily skinned individuals may still use this but may find the need to use oil-control sheets midday.  The only shade of Celeteque Brightening Multi-Benefit BB Cream works best for medium skin tone.

Where to purchase and how much?
Available at Watsons and Mercury Drug outlets for Php325.00 (approx $7.90)Like Celeteque on Facebook for more product information.  Follow them on Twitter (@CeletequeDermo)

 Squeeze type packaging.
Easy to dispense the right amount of product as needed.

Texture of Celeteque BB Cream is creamy and not runny at all.

Spreading out the product, it looks quite light on my skin.

My preferred application:
Using clean fingers, gently massaging product with downward motion.

Before and After Photo
I apologize for the sudden change of lighting (on photo) but please take a look on my under eye circle, the redness around the cheeks and my tiny mole, with a tiny amount of Celeteque Brightening Multi-Benefit BB Cream, the appearance of dark under eye circles and redness around the cheeks lessened.  Skin looks more even yet still natural.


For a better view, I applied Celeteque Brightening Multi-Benefit BB Cream on the right hand side of my face (left facing you)Do you see the difference?

I am very impressed with Celeteque's BB Cream and the fact that it is very affordable and widely available in local market.  I will definitely use this and hope I get the extra benefits the product promises!

Have you seen Celeteque BB Cream?
Would you give this BB Cream a try?

    1. OO but it's worth giving a try, you can always apply bronzer or darker face powder on top if this product is light for you :D

    1. Yes, but sometimes, you still need powder to "set" the bb cream especially if you have oily skin :)

  10. I quite "hiyang" with the Maybelline BB Cream even if i find it quite runny. I also use MAC BB + Prime but for only on special occasions. Medyo pricey kasi. I just bought Celeteque BB cream so i googled for reviews. I'm glad i stumbled upon you blog. :) BTW, the L/R with/without comparison is very helpful. :)
