Cellnique Derma Whitening Essence

I was recently sent a few Cellnique products to trial and review. The first product that I tried was the Derma Whitening Essence.

Here's what Cellnique has to say about Derma Whitening Essence: Derma Whitening Essence is a high performance lightening essence that effectively targets the appearance of dark spots to give skin and extraordinary radiance and natural colour. It is a revolutionary formulation for gradual fading of epidermal pigmentation or harm caused by free radicals. It is also enhanced with idebenone that acts as a powerful free radical scavenger.



As you can see from the before and after photo's, this really didn't work for me. I had high hopes that it would be effective, especially on the dark patch on the side of my face, however it looks the same now as it did when I first started using the serum. 

I was surprised at how quickly I used this up. It lasted me about six weeks with twice daily use. Maybe if I used another bottle of this I would see results, but I didn't notice any change in my skin tone at all.

You can buy Cellnique products from  their website. They ship worldwide, have a flat rate shipping of $10 (AUD) and free shipping if your purchase is over $60.

Would I buy this? No.
