Nuskin Celltrex Ultra : Insurance For Your Skin

We go through a basic skincare regime everyday with Cleanser – Tone – Moisturise (Day & Night). We learn and know how to repair or treat a problem when needed. Hyaluronic Acid when you have dry skin, tea tree oil when you have acne.

 

But how often do we treat our skin properly without irritating and damaging it further in the long run?

When I first found Celltrex Ultra sitting on my mother’s vanity table, I was curious and picked it up. Tested and tried it like any curious beauty-addict would do. Finally, i looked it up and i was curious. I then asked my mom what it was and she gave me the remaining bottle of what she had.

 

This was two years ago, and I’ve been hooked since.

 

It’s literally insurance for your skin.

 

Why do I say it’s Insurance For Your Skin?

 

It protects the skin from free radical damage, dust, pollution and all that jazz. It helps to keep skin looking supple, smooth and healthy.

I know they are a few other products out there that promotes on protecting your skin from dust and pollution while providing long term benefit, but with Celltrex Ultra, it also rebounds from daily oxidative stress.

It’s like insurance for your skin as in the long run, you are protected from damage, you’ll age gracefully and keeping your skin radiance and healthy.

 

It’s not just repairing temporary or what’s on the surface, but keeping your skin safe on the long-run deep within your skin.

 

 

Contains patented polyphenol hydroxytyrosol, the most powerful component of Mediterranean extra virgin olive oil, which scavenges skin aging free radicals. Just a few drops of Celltrex® Ultra keeps your skin looking supple, firm, and healthy.

 

Celltrex Ultra Recovery Fluid fits in the treatment step and should be applied after toning and before moisturizing in the evening to help the skin recover from the days stress/damages.

 

 

 

Well, Apparently… …

Dermatologists understand that cellular oxidation (sometimes referred to as cellular metabolism) is a source of skin aging. Research has shown that the nutrients, especially hydroxytyrosol, found in extra virgin olive oil can be effective in relieving oxidative stress on cells. To demonstrate the ability of Celltrex® Ultra to minimize oxidation, cut a russet potato* in half and spread Celltrex® Ultra Recovery Fluid onto one half of the potato. Do not apply any product to the other half of the potato. Place the two halves side by side and examine both halves of the potato after fifteen minutes. You will notice, the half of the potato with Celltrex® Ultra still looks fresh, while the untreated half is beginning to brown. The longer you wait, the more dramatic the difference between the two halves becomes. *A russet potato will provide the most visually compelling results.

 

 

 

Personal Experience:

I’ve used this for over two years and I never really noticed what a difference it made until I stopped using it a year ago. My skin started to dry up in patches with flaky skin, acne and larger pores, as well as eczema and rosecea due to the dry skin especially over the winter seasons and throughout the period of 8 months. After 6 months of trying to figure out why, I finally got my hands on another new bottle of Celltrex Ultra and all the problems went away. So it’s definitely a holy grail and a highly recommended product for those who wants to be protected and have nice supple skin in the long run.

Apparently the most authentic Japanese restaurant in Sydney. H has been hear once and he claimed it was so good he had to come back again with me and he managed to get a booking.

 

From the outside, the place looks like a random place that you wouldn’t think of walking in unless you knew what it was. Right in the middle of residential area of Cammeray (North of Sydney), I would have missed it if it wasn’t for H.

 

THE place to go for premium SAKE & SHOCHU in Sydney – they say. Unfortunately I don’t talk about alco. So I won’t be able to provide a range of sake and how good it’ll be.

You have to spot it.

First time trying Uni. (Uni is the Japanese word for Sea Urchin). I usually avoid ordering it, as people around me don’t really enjoy Uni or order it so I have never had the urge or the craving for Uni until today as H is a Uni-guy.

It has a really rich sea flavour but not fishy or salty (like oysters and shells) but creamy at the same time! As it’s my first time and my only time (till date) I can’t say it’s the best as there’s nothing to compare to, but it’s definitely something I’ll order to try around. Maybe a Uni-challenge coming up?

We also ordered the Chawanmushi which is OH MAI GAWD da best!

Texture and taste is perfect! Portion isn’t small too! I hate some places which has really small portion and I’ll end up finishing it within 5 mouth spoon and H can take up 1 mouth spoon and three quarter gone. T3T

Yakitori – One thing I’ve noticed in a few Japanese places. You really can’t go wrong with yakitori! We ordered the wagyu beef and the pork belly yakitori. Figured we wanted slightly savoury with all the seafood.

 

 

 

Sushi and Sashimi were both served Omakase style. Don’t know what type of Nigiri Sushi and Sashimi was provided until it’s served. And we definitely weren’t disappointed at all! I get slightly disappointed with omakase nigiri sushi serving Tamago Sushi. Unless the Tamago is really top-notch awesome pawsome.

 

Lobster popcorn – I cannot get enough of this.

 

 

I repeat.

 

 

CANNOT GET ENOUGH OF THIS

 

This was sooooo good! If you’re here, you gotta try this!

 

Huge ass green tea mochi for dessert that was really good! It’s hard to find a place that serves good mochi. Some places are either too stiff and hard as it was left in the fridge/freezer for too long.

 

If you’re looking for a new Japanese place to go, definitely try Toriciya. It’s an experience you’ll never forget.
