Céleteque releases new micellar cleansers

THE SECRET to great skin is proper cleansing — whether you spend the day outside wearing a mask or inside working in front of a laptop, dirt and unnecessary oils accumulate throughout the day. While facial washes are great for one’s skin, there’s always stubborn dirt and makeup that doesn’t go away by simply washing one’s face, double cleansing is necessary. So here come the newly launched Céleteque Micellar cleansers in two variants: Céleteque Hydration Micellar Water cleanses and moisturizes, removing dirt and makeup without stripping one’s face of moisture, plus improving skin moisture by 35% upon application; and, Céleteque Brightening Micellar Milk which cleanses, brightens, smoothens skin thanks to its Vitamin B3 to help brighten the skin and Rice Milk Extract to help soften the skin in as early as seven days, as the brand promises. Both products are dermatologist-tested to be hypoallergenic and safe for everyday use. They are also non-comedogenic, paraben-free, and alcohol-free. Céleteque Hydration Micellar Water is available for P169 (250 ml) and Brightening Micellar Milk for P199 (250ml) at www.celeteque.com, and major supermarkets, drugstores, beauty stores, and e-commerce marketplaces nationwide.
