Cellnique Paramedical: Instant Calming Express Kit [Sponsored Review]

Hi Ladies!
I'm back with more skincare reviews this week!

First up, I got my Instant Calming Express Kit from Cellnique Paramedical at the start of January. In my Express Kit, I received the D’sensi Calming Essence and Intensive Soothing & Hydrating Masque based on my results from doing a skin consultation guide.

I was sent this kit because my main skin concerns are my hyper sensitive skin and I want to lighten pigmentation. This “Instant Calming” Express Kit is good for sensitive and delicate skin, and is stated to instantly cool and refresh the skin, promote cell healing, and provide immediate soothing relief to redness, itchy and stinging caused by external aggressors and breakouts.

And after analyzing my skin care routine by their skin professionals, I was suggested to use the followings for my skincare regimen:

Day time:
Oskia Perfect Cleanser
Origins Original Serum
Origins CC Cream

Night time:
Make Up Remover
Oskia Perfect Cleanser
Cellnique’s Intensive Soothing and Hydrating Masque (apply thick layer once a week. Wait until semi-dry, then rinse off)
Cellnique’s D’sensi Calming Essence (use continuously 2 -3 days a week. 3 – 5 drops tapping on whole face)
Physiogel Daily Moisture Therapy
Origins Clay Masque

After reviewing these 2 products, here's my review!

Product Rating: 3/10

Sadly, I didn't note any difference after use. My skin was still breaking out and there isn't a noticeable improvement, I didn't like how the serum felt sticky on my skin after application too. Ingredient-wise, I don't like that it contains parabens, which are commonly used for their anti-fungal and preservative properties. And even though these ingredients are at the bottom of the ingredient list and they are regarded safe when used in small amounts, I would still prefer to avoid parabens if I can.

I use this mask as instructed by the skin professionals, instead of wiping it off with wet cotton pads, I washed it off. And I found that I prefer washing it off because it leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth after without any stickiness.

After usage, I found that this mask really does help to hydrate the skin, to illustrate, I applied the mask on the back of my hand, left it on for 5 minutes before washing it off. Instantly, the skin looks smoother, hydrated and fairer!

It has a very very slight cooling sensation upon application, I keep it in the fridge to increase the cooling effect. I found the pump a little hard to use as sometimes, nothing comes out from it. I don't like the fact that it has parabens in this products too. However, that being said, there are a huge controversy surrounding the use and effects of parabens, I leave it to you to decide. The fact is that this mask really does deliver its claims of leaving my skin soft and moist.
