SKII Cellumination Mask Review

April 5, 2011

After a long day of stressful work, when I am still in the mood to take a picture of myself smiling genuinely..that means I am in lurvvv..with SKII Cellumination Mask-IN Lotion.

It all began from last week, I was flicking through the latest issue of Marie Claire. This product featured in their beauty section just totally caught my attention.


Their description:

GET GLOWING – gives the intense radiance benefits of a face mask, minus the fuss. Simply smooth it on under your moisturizer daily for an instant pick-me-up.

If you ask any makeup artists, I am sure 9 out 10  would suggest you to use the SKII treatment mask before the big events to prep the skin– it just makes a huge difference to your makeup. Pat McGrath always uses the SKII treatment masks on models at every fashion show she does. They are extremely pricey though, $125 for 5 sheets! This product – SKII Cellumination Mask-IN Lotion, seems like a cheaper alternative that allows me to achieve a similar result.

There is no better time to test this product than now. Lately, my skin is getting dryer as the weather is getting cooler. I noticed my makeup appears to be sitting on top of my skin regardless of what products I use. I have been using this product religiously every morning before my toner, and it has totally addressed my skin concerns.. It gives me a radiant complexion by taking away the dullness, dryness and flakiness. I find any moisturizer I use afterwards absorbs into my skin better, and any foundation I use blends in beautifully like my second skin – exactly the same effect as if I just had a mask.

Just for your information, this product retails for $120 in Australia, about the same price as a box of SKII Treatment Masks but you can get much more use out of it.

I find my skin has been dull and flaky lately, and I’ve had the same problem as you where my makeup has been sitting on top rather than blending right into my face. This seems like a great idea, wish I wasn’t a broke uni student ><
Thanks for the great review xx

Maybe it’s time to switch to a different moisturizer? Haha once upon a time..I was a poor uni student too..

Just wondering if you are still using this and whether you still like it? Thanks!

Hi Jesselyn I don’t use it anymore. By no means is this a bad product but I just like to explore new things. Basically it is a very very hydrating lotion that makes your skin instantly softer and plumped hence the makeup will sit nicely. At the moment I found that my Suisse Programme Cellular Boost solution does a better job 🙂

did you say you used this product after toner? does facial treatment lotion consider toner? because i used facial treatment lotion and then followed by cellumination deep surge and under hot sun (32 degree today) and my skin became really RED! did I do the routine wrongly? i mean, should i used the mask-in first before the treatment lotion? thanks!
