Today I bring two reviews in one blog post about a lesser known Korean skincare brand which deserve more recognition: Cellabel. Their skin care is mainly targeted a sensitive skin types. One of the products I will discuss is for sensitive dry skin, whereas the other is more suitable for sensitive combination and oily skin types.
There’s plenty to discuss so let’s begin, pronto.
Cellabel Calming Relief Gel Cream
If you have sensitive skin, you’ll know how essential it is to have skin soothing and calming products in your routine – something you can rely on it your skin becomes more irritable than usual. One of the most common formulas for this relief are gel formulas which are gentle, lightweight and fast absorbing. Aloe Vera, Cactus and Cica gels are the typical types of gel that are readily available online. However, if you are looking to move into using a dual functional gel which implements repair/rejuvenation and barrier strengthening properties it could be worth taking a look into the Cellabel Calming Relief Gel Cream.

For now it’s too soon to completely recognise whether its helping to strengthen my skin barrier, however the skin soothing effects are immediately noticeable at each and every use. I use pumps of this gel morning and night directly after applying toner or before using moisturiser depending on how many and which steps/products I want to use that day. I’d say it’s particularly helpful for reducing redness restoring light hydrating after cleansing. Because it is silicone and fragrance free I don’t have any concerns as to how often I use the gel – you could easily use this multiple times throughout the day if for whatever reason your skin feels unsettled. Of course with most gel formulas you can keep this product in your refrigerator to boost the cooling effects it supplies; in this case it will also help to restrict your pore size.
Cellabel Triple Hylauronic Cream
As with any other Hylauronic Acid product, this cream focuses on providing a surge of intensive hydration which lasts for a prolonged amount of time rather than an instant fix that satisfies skin for just a few hours after initial application.
💧 Formulated with 3 different molecular sizes of Hylauronic Acid – ultimately soaking into skin at different rates to provide skin with sufficient moisture throughout wear.
💧 Provitamin B5 (panthenol) acts as a protective shield on the surface of skin to prevent moisture loss and minimise irritation for external factors we encounter in everyday life.
💧Mild skin system makes it suitable for sensitised skin types which are in need of strengthening or repair.
𝐎𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐧𝐨𝐭𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬: Silk amino acids, royal jelly extract, squalene, Nonapeptide-1 ( – a synthetic nonapeptide for skin conditioning deriving for several ingredients including Arginine).

This cream is super silky and smooth. If you like a texture which doesn’t require you to rub your face too much in order for it to melt into skin, you’ll appreciate how effortless it is to work this formula into skin. The first time I used it, I was surprised how it kept my skin feeling hydrated enough all day long – I hadn’t even applied many other hydrating products that day.
From a cost effective point of view this product does go a long way. A fingernail sized amount covered my entire face, although in Winter (or whenever you prefer) you could easily layer this cream a few times if your skin is more on the dry side. I’d actually like to see a body moisturiser version of this because it’s non-sticky and has potential for rehydrating parts of the body which may get less attention than your face for example.
