Cellese AnteAGE Serum: Review

1:36:00 PM

I came across this Cellese AnteAGE Serum last year while looking up ingredients one day, and decided to give it a try. Per Cellese AnteAGE's website: "Restore your skin’s ability to heal itself with AnteAGE® regenerating serum. This elegant serum quickly absorbs into your skin, utilizing nanotechnology to deliver a powerhouse of physiologically balanced Stem Cytokines™, Potent Peptides, and Protective Antioxidants."

Stem Cytokines™ Carnosine
Niacinamide (vit B3) Palmitoyl Oligopeptide
Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 Yerba Maté
GreenTea Extract Catechins & Flavonoids

Human cytokines or stem cells is something I have not tried yet, I've tried fruit or rose stem cells so that's why this was so interesting for me to try. The idea may bother some so it's not for everyone. If you read the FAQ here they explain they get them from volunteers and how they go about producing the cytokines. Per Cellese's website: "AnteAGE is derived from stem cells, but not just any type. Mesenchymal stems cells are the human body’s natural reservoir of beautifying chemicals called cytokines. They are abundant in our youth, but disappear with age.

Cellese scientists capture these regenerative cells from healthy human adults and grow them in a unique laboratory environment, coaxing them to create an abundance of cytokines. Cytokines play many roles, but the ones we are interested in are those resulting in a transformation of skin’s appearance.  Beautification chemicals, if you will.

Stem cytokines represent a unique and powerful approach to enhancing your skin's appearance; one that is scientifically advanced and yet completely natural to your skin."

If you want to read more about cytokines you can go here and here. The creators of this serum run barefacedtruth.com which is kind of like Paula's Choice reviews, they talk about science and skin care and ingredients, if you're into that kind of reading.

I have now finished a full bottle, I used this at night only as my main serum besides an AHA. This comes in a 30 ml pump and retails for a pricey $150. The pump is airless so there's no degradation of ingredients which is great, it's a little bulky for my medicine cabinet but that's my only complaint on the packaging. I was not able to use this with their Accelerator as recommended as it has retinol and because of my pregnancy. I'm sure it works better with that, but maybe one day I'll test them both together again.

The color is a pale yellow cream, it's not a thin liquid serum, it's a thicker liquid. It has no scent I can detect which is great. It wasn't greasy, didn't break me out, I had no irritation so that was all great.

So did it work? After consistent nightly use I did notice an evenness in my skin tone, it had a radiance to it. I also noticed my skin looked plumper while using. It helped my forehead fine lines some, they didn't go away fully, but as soon as I stopped using I noticed the radiance and overall plump look went down hill. My forehead lines also got a little worse. I've not been using this for close 3 weeks now and I definitely think this made a difference in the areas I mentioned in my skin.

I hate it when the expensive serums work because like everyone else I'm always hoping to find that great one for cheaper. I've been on a big serum journey the last year, I have several I'm testing one at a time, once I'm done I'll have a more set routine and this may very well get added back into my night routine as a staple once I'm done testing the ones I want to. I am not aware of any other similar serums that use human cytokines unless maybe a prescription by a Dermatologist?
