The Celeteque Dermoscience Hydration Facial Wash is the first proper cleanser I’ve used. I started to take skin care seriously in the latter half of 2019 because of wanting to take better care of myself. Previously, I used a cleanser that Miniso sold and boy, that was a bad idea.
If you’re curious whether or not you should try this cleanser, I wrote this review that focuses on the application, price, and ingredients. You can find my final verdict at the end!
Applying it to my skin
Being a cleanser, a small (pea size) amount is enough to to cover my whole face. I typically use 5 drops: two for each cheek, one for the forehead, chin, and nose.
You usually don’t need to let it stay on your face for too long, less than a minute is fine. After 30 seconds, I wash my face with cold water, being thorough in making sure that it’s completely removed.
When I used the Miniso cleanser, my face felt really tight. In my ignorance I thought it meant it was working. Doing some research showed that it’s a sign that it’s too strong for my skin. In the trash it goes.
Compared to that, this cleanser feels great, I don’t feel anything weird after washing it off. It’s smoother and the oil on my skin is removes easily.
Celeteque Hydration Facial Wash Price
I bought the 100ml cleanser for ₱140 at a Watsons store. You can find it in other sizes too on their official website as listed below with price per unit shown for those who want to compare.
100ml of the stuff is enough for me and has lasted me four months. Based on the price per unit though, buying the 250ml has more value.

Its important that you look into the formula since we all have different types of skin and you may experience a bad reaction.
A key ingredient present is Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLS). SLS is the ingredient that creates the lather and can cause irritation to some people with sensitive skin, which is why you should do a patch test before using at its full potency.
Celeteque Dermoscience Hydration Facial Wash – Is it worth it?
For the past four months of using the 100ml variant, my skin has not reacted at all, which is great since not all cleansers are the same. It’s really difficult to find the right one just because all of us have different types of skin. For reference, I’m a combination type, meaning my skin is oily and dry at the same time.
- No scent
- SLS may affect other people’s skin
As a cleanser, I recommend it as it’s able to do the job of removing dirt and oil. If you’re just beginning to dive into skin care, this one may just be worth a try.
