Product Spotlight: Celeteque DermoScience Matte Moisturizer SPF30

 I've been a loyal user of Celeteque for a long time now (love their gel moisturizer from the old line) and so I panicked when I learned that they are brewing a new line. My fear is that they might not have a moisturizer as good as the old gel one. But I was wrong. Their new line- Celeteque DermoScience - still carries the gel moisturizer that I used to love. In addition, this one caught my attention:

A Matte Moisturizer? Oh, and a Matte Moisturizer with SPF 30? Looks interesting, as I often find sun care products to be generally sticky, hence amplifying the oiliness on my skin.

But again, I was wrong. When Celeteque says it's matte, it is indeed matte! So when I used this the first time, I did not apply liquid foundation nor BB cream anymore. I used this as my makeup base and just set it with mineral powder. One thing that bothers me though is that it is not fragrance-free. It smells like a typical sunblock. But that's not a big deal though. 

To use, apply a pea-sized amount to cover the entire face and neck and let it set for awhile. Then set it with your favorite powder foundation or setting powder. I've been using this for 2 weeks now and fortunately, no breakouts yet. 

Here it is. The consistency is thick so a little goes a long way. 
Up next: another sun care product from Celeteque DermoScience.


  1. I'll give this a try when I'm out of moisturizers. The word matte got me. :) Thanks for featuring this. I'm happy with the eye cream from this line so far.

  2. so,is it really effective in controlling oil,hun?

  3. Wow, hope you can list down the ingredients. You had me at "MATTE"

  4. Thanks for sharing. Its being a matte moisturizer is intriguing :)))

  5. @~tHiAmErE in my case, I have combination skin (super oily on the T-zone) but it works fine on me. if you are super oily then might as well try their oil-control toner as well, then use this as a makeup base.

    @rae, sure sis, will take a pic of the box as soon as I find time =)

  6. thanks for this! the word MATTE is sooo intriguing. will try this soon.
