First VIP Experience in Sample Room (Part 7)

The pending review I talked about last time was already approved when I thought it will not going to be at all. Few more days (3 days?) and my VIP subscription will end. As I reach the ending phase of my VIP subscription, reviews takes longer (weeks) to be approved. So far, it kept my impulse buying at bay and most of all it prevented me from wasting money. This might be my last haul as the over the counter way of payment doesn't inspire me.

During the time I am writing this, I still eyeing another haul but I only looked at it and let it vanish after few minutes. That's how fast SR samples gets out of stock. The product includes Burt's Bees plain lip balm, Himalaya Face Pack and Burt's Bees Hand Cream. I still have 2 hand creams left, a shimmery lip balm of the same brand and a hesitation to Himalaya products as it doesn't give me outstanding result so far. Hmm... I wonder if it will work well if paired with other Himalaya variants. I actually want to complete the Burt's Bees set but I feel the need to be reasonable.

Celeteque Maternity Anti-Stretch Mark Cream, Burt's Bees Nourishing Milk and Honey Lotion and Burt's Bees Hand Salve

Product Impression

The anti-stretch mark cream is humongous. I'm quite expecting a smaller one for I believe that those kind of creams tends to be small in size and is pricey. I used to ignore this in Sample Room for it's meant for those who undergone pregnancy. I am relieved that the box says it can minimize existing stretch marks. On the other hand, the  Burt's Bees lotion is small but that's what sample is besides from the fact that it's organic and a popular brand. Salve means to heal or soothe. I may like the other hand cream but this one catches my attention and curiosity more. I wonder if it has the same texture and consistency with the cuticle cream I am currently using.

What do you think? Okay lang?


  1. Hi,
    Do you have a review dun sa Celeteque Maternity Anti-Stretchmark Cream? Nanganak kasi ako 2 years ago na pero mei stretchmarks pdn ako. Effective kea? Kasi ang gnagmit ko ngaun is Bio-Oil which prang ka price lng ata ng Celeteque. Okay nmn ung bio oil pro i dont thnk n mwwla tlga ung stretchmarks ko. Thanks

    1. None yet. I'm currently using the cream then I will make a review after I consumed half/full of the product. I will also include a picture of the result. For now, I cannot vouch for its effectiveness. I feel like it's a slow working cream but in the meantime let's just give it the benefit of the doubt. Let's also consider that the product is intended during the pregnancy or just after, though somehow the packaging states that it can "lighten" existing stretch mark. So far, it's good in moisturizing the area. Hopefully there's some visible change after consuming the whole product.

      Maybe it needs massaging also? Or exfoliation. Patience is the key ^_^ (I am also determined to remove my stretch mark)
