Review: Cellnique Amino Collagen C Intense Set and Advanced Bio Renewal Masque




I was contacted by Selina at Cellnique to do a review of some of their products.

She asked me what were my biggest skin concerns, so she could send me the appropriate products.
I have mixed skin with large pores and some imperfections (most on my chin).

I got the Amino Collagen C Intense Set and the Advanced Bio Renewal Masque to review. Since I used the Amino Collagen C Intense Set the most, the emphasis of this review will be on it. I was using them for 3 weeks. 

But first, a few words about Cellnique

Cellnique Amino Collagen C Intense Set



What is Amino Collagen C Intense Set?
It's a highly intensive set, that targets large pores, fine lines and sagging skin.

Selina has also sent me a few really useful information about how and when to use their products, so that I can get the most benefits from them.




Their products page is really interesting as you can get a lot on information: from the description, benefits, usage with tips, ingredients (with pictures), with what goes well together (their other products), reviews and FAQ.

And go HERE to read more about it.

This set is composed from 2 parts: Amino Collagen C Intense I and II.

Ingredients of Amino Collage C Intense I: Glycerin, Purified Water (Aqua), Vitamin C (L-ascorbic Acid), Witch Hazel (Hamamelis virginiana) Extract, Hyaluronic Acid, Pro Vitamin B5 (D-panthenol), Xanthan Gum, Methyparaben.

Ingredients of Amino Collage C Intense II: Purified Water(Aqua), Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Butylene Glycol, Lactamide MEA, Silk Protein (Silk Amino Acids), Sodium Hyaluronate, Rice (Oryza sativa) Bran Extract, Kinetin, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Methyparaben.

Texture: it's liquid but somewhat dense

Smell: not really pleasant and hard to describe, the Amino Collagen C Intense II smells less intense than Amino Collagen C intense I

Let's move to the picture part. I know you're really interested to see the difference, but be warned, the pictures of me with no makeup (and somewhat grouchy) are not really pretty :)

As you can see before I had some breakouts, red patches, large pores and small acne scarring (that holes).
After 3 weeks of usage, I was really surprised that my lines (near my mouth) are less deep, that my skin looks better, with less imperfections (as it helps to heal them) and smaller pores.

Pros:
+ It works
+ It rejuvenates your skin
+ It makes your fine lines to disappear
+ My skin was soft as baby's skin (hadn't had that in years)
+ The package 
+ It heals imperfections (and scars) really fast

Cons:
- The smell
- It really tingles and burns (I guess, I have really sensitive skin)
- I used it up in 3 weeks
- The price (for a student's pocket)

Overall: 
It worked and because of that I loved it! 

Price: 96 $ for 10 ml x 2
Where to get: HERE

Advanced Bio Renewal Masque



What is Advanced Bio Renewal Masque?
It's a scrub masque that removes dead cells, cleans pores and helps with the renewal of cells.

Where you can learn more about it? HERE

Texture: clay like with small scrub particles

Smell: really strong fruity smell




Ingredients: Purified Water (Aqua), Glycerin, Kaolin, Glycolic Acid, Glyceryl Stearate, Cetyl Alcohol, C12-20 Acid PEG-8 Ester, Polysorbate 20, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Papaya (Carica papaya) Enzyme (Papain), Phenoxyethanol, Trithanolamine, Caprylyl Glycol, Titanium Dioxide, Citric Acid, Pomelo (Citrus grandis) Peel Extract, Pineapple (Ananas sativus) Fruit Extract, Acrylate / C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Fragrance, Disodium EDTA, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben, Butylparaben, Potassium Sorbate.

My experience: I've used this masque once per week, for four weeks. This one as well tingled when I applied it, but that feeling went away after 5 minutes. I left it on for 15 minutes and that washed it off with outward circular movements (so that the peeling could work). It left my skin really soft!

Pros
+ I love the texture of  it! It's a masque AND a peeling!
+ It leaves really soft skin
+ Exfoliates your skin
+ Cleanses pores
+ It lasts for a really long time
+ The packaging

Cons: 
- The smell (like fertilized ananas)
- The price

Overall: I like how it looks like and how your skin looks and feels after its usage! The smell was a downside for me, but others noticed just the fruity smell.

Price: 51 $ for 50 g
Where to get it: HERE
