Celeteque DermoScience+ Acne Spot Corrector Gel


Just like any other 20-year-old woman out there, I get acne! I’ve mentioned before how I use Panoxyl and Terramycin for treating my acne (especially PMS-related ones) I use Panoxyl on closed acne to dry them up. If you use Panoxyl on open ones, it would really hurt [in the vernacular, mahapdi] I use Terramycin on open acne; particularly the post-popped-with-pus ones since this ointment, which has been used in our family for years now, is an antibacterial ointment which prevents scarring as well. It can also be used on wounds and burns, not just acne.


Ever since I saw Celeteque’s newest skincare lines (which they’ve launched plenty of) I’ve been eyeing on the spot corrector gel from the ‘Acne Solutions’ line. I finally bought it and tested it out for a few days before making this review.

The Acne Spot Corrector Gel cost me PHP 169.00. Not bad, since Panoxyl costs more! Terramycin costs waaaay more, even.

I was on my PMS-days that time and I had acne all over my face. I gave the product a try and true enough, after just 2 days of treating (I apply it once a day before I go to bed) my acne shrunk and disappeared totally on the third day.


Let’s go through the nitty gritty of this product:

The Celeteque DermoScience Acne Solutions Acne Spot Corrector Gel contains Hydroxy Acid combined with Poly Hydroxy Acid which aids in exfoliating dead skin cells and helps in diminishing pimples and other acne imperfections to achieve clear and smooth skin. It contains Lilac Leaf Cell Culture Extract that helps reduce sebum production to prevent future acne breakouts. It also has a biotechnological complex that acts as a natural astringent and sebum controller.


The only thing I noticed is that I was left with dry patches on the acne area during the treatment process. It’s really nothing to be alarmed about, but when I apply makeup on the area, I saw visible flaking. A clear proof that the product is working, though!

Overall, I’d recommend this product to anyone out there having troubles with acne, either long-term ones or PMS-related ones. Albeit, if you’re not too sure whether this would work for you or not, I suggest you consult with your dermatologist first! As my fellow blogger and good friend Janica would say “What works for me may not work for you.” So use at your own risk!

I give this product 4 out of 5 stars. A perfect replacement for Panoxyl. I see this as a milder version of Panoxyl. Try it out when you get the chance!

Clearly, this is not a sponsored review. I haven’t even made a video on this yet; I just wanted to get the word out as soon as possible!

Celeteque is available at any Watsons and SM Department Store.
