Celeteque DermoScience+ Matte Moisturizer with SPF 30

You've probably spotted the new Celeteque Dermoscience+ at the stores already. The one product that caught my eye, quite predictably, is the SPF 30 which is a step up from their previous SPF 15 moisturizer. Curious about this sunscreen, too? Here's a quick rundown of its good and not-so good points:

What I like:

  • has a higher broad spectrum SPF rating
  • dermatologist-tested, hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic
  • non-greasy and non-reflective, though still has a little bit of sheen to it when applied
  • easy to spread
  • easily absorbed by the skin
  • feels lightweight
  • mild scent reminds me of the beach (read: smells like typical sunscreen)
  • can be used as a good base for powdered makeup
  • handy and practical tube packaging
  • expiration date is stamped on the tube itself
  • affordable price -- only Php 230!

What I don't like:

  • can leave a slight whitish cast for darker-skinned girls
  • can look streaky if not blended well
  • it's not entirely matte, still has a teeny bit of sheen to it

I applied a bit to my hand and blended well
can you see the slight whitish cast?
For those who desire a broad spectrum sunscreen that won't put a dent in your wallet, I really recommend this Matte Moisturizer SPF 30. It is an effective and yet affordable sunscreen which is proudly hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. You can't go wrong with the price, it's only Php 230 per 50ml tube. 

The new Celeteque DermoScience+ Matte Moisturizer with SPF 30 is available at all SM Dept. Store and Watsons. 


  1. hmm. i wonder if this should be a good thing to start with instead of the leyende one? i have been thinking of using sunscreen. it's been insanely hot and sunny these days. it feels like summer all over again ~_~

  2. @Clair Ching: The nice thing about the Celeteque sunblock is it offers UVA and UVB protection. I would really suggest starting with this since it's more affordable :)

  3. I will check out Celeteque in that case. Thank you so much!

  4. hello sa lahat, bumili kasi ako ng celeteque products.. facial wash with natural moisturizing factor, alcohol free toner with witch hazel extract and facial moisturizer with moisturizing system.. i have oily skin kasi, hindi ko alam kung tama ba ang combination na binili ko.. kelangan ko pa buh ng sunscreen? pls help me.. ngresearch lng kasi ako.. thanks

    1. Hi! Yes whether your skin is oily, dry or combination you still need to protect your skin from the sun. I would recommend choosing a non-greasy, lightweight sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 30 :) Try Celeteque Celeteque DermoScience+ Matte Moisturizer with SPF 30 or any sunblock gel :)
