Professional K-beauty at your house | Cell Fusion C Laser Rejuvenation Ampoule Review

Sunday 22 November 2020

Peptides are quite a controversial topic. Do they work? Are they safe? Personally, I'm a fan of peptides and I had to try Cell Fusion C Laser Rejuvenation Ampoule, but not because it's a serum full of peptides, but because this K-beauty brand is popular amongst professional estheticians. Cell Fusion C Laser Rejuvenation Ampoule is not only a moisturizing and rejuvenating serum, but it also has one interesting function which many people will love and it's related to hair. 

About Cell Fusion C 

Cell Fusion C is a brand which I saw on Jolse before, but lately, I saw many local estheticians recommending this brand. Some people - including my friends - didn't know that Cell Fusion C is a South Korean brand. Estheticians here started to use Cell Fusion C Expert line on clients which makes me happy because there are few professional brands from Korea which I know and had a chance to test, but a few years ago if I mentioned any of these brands people didn't know them. 

Cell Fusion C Laser Rejuvenation Ampoule - Packaging 

The red bottle comes in a paper box. The whole design is minimalistic, and the packaging has one thing which I love. If you remember Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Serum review then you will see the same solution that Dr Jart+ used with applicator - you need to twist it to turn on the pipette. 

Cell Fusion C Laser Rejuvenation Ampoule - Texture & Scent 

The texture is white and quite liquid. I don't want to say what it reminds me of, because there are few things like a popular medicine which kids take when they are sick. The scent is neutral, even if we have some aroma in this product, and no - I'm okay, I didn't lose my smell (thank God!), but even on the skin - lately, I have issues with my skin being sensitive to scent ingredients & essential oils due to 4th gen retinol treatment, and this serum is one of few products that doesn't sensitize my skin.

Purified Water is an ingredient which you can find in almost every product. Its purpose in products is easy - it's a solvent. Methylpropanediol is a solvent with antimicrobial properties. It's a synthetic ingredient that works even with the most stubborn substances. Glycerin is one of the most popular humectants in skincare. There's a large number of myths around glycerin like it can clog your skin. It doesn't clog your pores, but too much glycerin can make a sticky layer on the epidermis and even make your skin dryer than before due to TEWL (Transepidermal Water Loss). Still, it's an ingredient which we want to see in formulas. It feels like 1,2-Hexanediol is everywhere, and it's not a surprise. Even if it's a solvent, it's also a moisturizer. Niacinamide is a miracle ingredient. It does lots of great work. Do you have problems with dark spots? Try Niacinamide! Acne? Niacinamide will be an ideal pick for you too! Maybe you've got issues with skin barrier? Solve it with Niacinamide! Wrinkles? You might want to try Niacinamide as well. Sensitive skin might find Niacinamide bit problematic when it's mixed with Vitamin C or used in the same routine as Vitamin C. I can't deny Niacinamide is a skincare treasure! 

Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride is an emollient. It's a combination of coconut oil and glycerin which makes mild, gentle and delicate emollient. It thickens the formula, but it also makes skin feel smooth in touch. Polyglycerin-3 is a moisturizer. Centella Asiatica Extract is an ingredient that stays in skincare trend. Lots of ingredients used in skincare have a long history of use in medicine. This ingredient isn't different because Centella is a part of Ayurveda, a traditional (or if you prefer - alternative) medicine used by people for ages. Nowadays we associate it with India. Centella is a herb primarily applied in skincare for its healing properties. It speeds up the healing process, and that's why acne-prone skin loves it. If you're pregnant or you plan pregnancy, then try to find body care products with Centella Asiatica because it can have a valuable meaning on skin elasticity as well as stretch marks. Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract is a source of Vitamin B1, B2, B5 and beta-glucan. It's an antioxidant with soothing properties. Acne-prone skin and sensitive skin love this ingredient. Pteris Multifida Extract might sounds unknown to you. The other name of this herb is Feng Wei Cao and as you expect - it's a herb from Chinese Traditional Medicine. It's an antioxidant, and it should calm your skin. Rubus Fruticosus Extract or Blackberry Extract is an astringent. Avocado is a source of oleic acid, Vitamin B5, B6 and Vitamin E. Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Fruit Extract is a moisturizing and soothing ingredient. Sodium Hyaluronate is a salt form of a popular Natural Moisturizing Factor - Hyaluronic Acid. 

Cyclohexasiloxane is silicone, but it's also an emollient. This silicone is a volatile silicone. What does that mean? Previously, when I made a review of AHC Eye Cream some people said some inequitable words about me for promoting a cream with silicones and other ingredients they don't like to use due to problems with apps that help you analyze additives. Been then and I also was one of such people before due to my troubles with food (I can't eat processed food unless I want to feel like I'm dying entire week). Silicones are the ultimate pick for the skin since they work as occlusives - what they do is protect the skin from dehydration. Volatile silicones are evaporating from the epidermis. They won't get absorbed by the skin, that's why you shouldn't be scared. If you're hypersensitive, then the good news is that the chance of getting allergic reactions to silicones is ultra-tiny! Still, every skin reacts differently. I don't want to force you to use products with silicones - we live in free countries. No one decides for you what you should use. Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer is a polymer that helps with the thickness of the product. Xanthan Gum has a similar role to Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer. Adenosine is another elegant ingredient. It speeds up the healing process and repairs the skin barrier. It's ideal for inflamed skin, and it might have a positive effect on skin elasticity. Carbomer is a thickener and stabilizer. You can often see it in gel formulas. 

Tromethamine helps with the pH, to make sure your product has an ideal pH. Polyquaternium-51 is an ingredient which I think I mostly see in hair care products. It's a humectant. Beta-Glucan derives from yeast, mushroom (like Chaga or shiitake), seaweed or cereals (oat, wheat, barley). To me, Beta-Glucan smells like wine. Beta-glucan is a stunning humectant with soothing properties. It's great for sensitive skin. Butylene Glycol is not different from Beta-Glucan besides the fact that it is a solvent, but it's also alcohol. You see, not every alcohol in skincare is terrible. Some of them have positive effects on your skin - just like Butylene Glycol, which is a popular substance even in eco/green cosmetic products. It can help you hydrate your skin. Hydrolyzed Collagen is a smaller version of collagen. In general, collagen works as film ingredient, because its molecules are too big to get through the skin layers, that's why we use Vitamin C & other ingredients to boost collagen production. Both - regular & hydrolyzed versions are great moisturizers. We love fermented ingredients, and Aureobasidium Pullulans Ferment is not an exception. The fermentation process has a positive meaning for our skin - it's like packing your files in ZIP, but in this case, it's more like making bigger molecules smaller to help them penetrate your skin easier (and deeper). It's a fungus with moisturizing effect, but since it's a product of fermentation it can strengthen your skin. Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 is probably one of the most amusing ingredients in this product. You might know it as Syn-Coll, a patented synthetic tripeptide. It's an ingredient that helps with ageing, it doesn't only protect collagen from degradation, but it boosts collagen production. Products contain up to 3% of Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, and the difference in skin texture is visible after four weeks. 

Let me tell you something, the next ingredient we are about to see is a form of my least favourite ingredient or even my enemy. Lupine is the worst thing ever for me, that's why if you're allergic to gluten - be careful with Lupine in your food because you might end up with few more allergies like legumes and nuts (due to cross-reaction). Hydrolyzed Lupine Protein is a source of peptides. Nonapeptide-1 - it's a synthetic substance that helps with melanin synthesis, that's why this ingredient has skin-brightening properties. Meet Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, an ingredient that people loves to call "botox in a jar" or Argireline. It's a neuropeptide that helps with wrinkles - especially those related to muscle movement. Still, I wouldn't expect such astonishing effects while using this ingredient, because it gives you a short-term effect, so if you need a quick lift before a party - go for it. Copper Tripeptide-1 is a peptide complex made out of copper and three amino acids - glycine, histidine and lysine. This complex naturally occurs in our body - you can find it in urine and saliva. It has a beneficial meaning for our figures. It helps with wound healing, and it stimulates glycosaminoglycans, collagen and elastin production, it has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. That's why companies love to use it as a firming ingredient. Klairs use Copper Tripeptide-1 in many products like Midnight Blue Youth Activating Drop which review you can find on Kherblog. I used formulas with GHK-Cu before and in my case - it helps a lot with wound healing, and from time to time I like to add Copper Peptide serums to my skincare to give my skin some healing support. Tripeptide-1 or GHK (Glycine-Histidine-Lysine). It looks like a part of Collagen type I and as you know our skin needs Collagen type I and III the most. This ingredient can give a hint to your body that it needs to work more effectively and boost collagen production. 

Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 is a part of a complex named Matrixyl 3000. People treat it as an alternative of retinol, but it's a synthetic peptide that can help fight with wrinkles and inflammation. Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1 or Pal-GHK which similar to Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 is a part of peptide complex called Matrixyl 3000. It's an anti-aging ingredient. Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4 or Matrixyl. It helps with wrinkles and fine lines. It might be an impressive substitute for retinol with fewer side effects. Hexapeptide-9 is a synthetic peptide, it helps with wrinkles. Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-12 is another peptide on our list. Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid is a low weight humectant. It's a form of natural moisturizing factor that occurs in our skin - Hyaluronic Acid. The smaller the molecule is, the better it works. Hyaluronic Acid is an ingredient that everyone knows, and lately, European brands seem to be obsessed with it. Hyaluronic Acid is an ingredient that naturally occurs in our skin, and people usually think it's a wonderful moisturizer - the answer to dry skin. We have to remember that HA in skincare comes in a few different forms - a low molecule or high molecule, the smaller the molecule is, the easier is the penetration of the product. Usually, low molecule HA costs more, and you can barely ever see the product with HA and information on the molecular weight of the Hyaluronic Acid. Some people might get reactions to HA - my skin gets dehydrated when I use HA serums, sometimes I have to deal with redness or even acne after using HA serums, but acne, redness, skin sensitivity, and other reactions to the skin are personal. One product can work for you, but it won't work for your friend - same with ingredients. Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate is nothing else than another version of... If you thought about Hyaluronic Acid then you're right! It's another humectant in this formula. Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate is a version of Sodium Hyaluronate. Potassium Hyaluronate shouldn't surprise you. The 2nd part of the name of this ingredient tells us everything - it's Hyaluronic Acid Potassium Salt. I guess that under the word Aroma Cell Fusion C decided to hide the scent. Ethylhexylglycerin is a preservative to keep your product fresh, and free from bad yeasts, fungus, microbes, etc. Caprylyl Glycol is a moisturizer and an oily emollient. It leaves a delicate, protective film on your skin. But that's not all, Caprylyl Glycol is useful when you want to keep your product free from unfriendly stuff like microbes. 

Why are peptides a controversial topic? 

My experiments with peptides and growth factors started quite early, I think 2 or 3 years ago I shared a review on Swanicoco FGF serum, even if my knowledge on beauty was bit limited back then (since then a lot of stuff has changed in my degree and knowledge), but I saw dramatic - in a good sense of this word - change on my skin. Then I tried a few products based on peptides and growth factors. Peptides are nothing else than chains of amino acids with powerful nature, but the thing is that one peptide is not the same as the other one like Copper Peptide or Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4 - even if this is the same "group" of ingredients, they are different. Some peptides have more evidence than other ingredients from the same group, because of that people like to demonize them - like every substance that is synthetic or the name seems like it's not a natural ingredient... In Europe, every ingredient has its restrictions, if the product contains an ingredient that is banned in Europe or the amount is not right - we got a strict law, and such laws are not made for fun, but our safety. This is hypocrisy which I can't understand - people hating on some ingredients because they are not "green", but at the same time buying nail polishes from unknown source or clothes from an unknown source, for your information - pigments in clothes can cause allergic reactions too. I would say - trust your esthetician, dermatologist, and science. 

How does Cell Fusion C Laser Rejuvenation Ampoule work? 

Cell Fusion C Laser Rejuvenation Ampoule is an ampoule which is recommended to use after professional treatments like laser treatment. At first, I didn't see much difference when I was using this ampoule. It was a nice humectant, but it's neither better nor worse than other serums I tried. And I guess my opinion would stay the same, but thanks to COVID I had to deal with the same issue majority of people all around the world have to deal - maskne. Three weeks ago I started my Aklief treatment (you can check my 2nd Instagram account called mina_esthie where I'll keep you updated on Aklief treatment, but due to my studies I had to put this account on small hiatus), and my skin started to be sensitive like never before. Normally, when my skin gets sensitive I go for Neogen knit masks, now I went for Neogen Agecure Vaseline mask and Cell Fusion C Laser Rejuvenation Ampoule - even La Roche Posay cream recommended for sensitive skin doesn't feel for my skin as good as this duo, because LRP has citric acid, and thanks to retinoids my skin hates essential oils, fragrance substances and citric acid. In this situation Cell Fusion, C Laser Rejuvenation Ampoule not only moisture my skin and regenerate it because my skin likes to peel and itch, but the sensitivity of the skin is getting better, and I was able to go back to Cicapair Cream Gel and Match Algae masks. 

There's one thing you might not know about Cell Fusion C Laser Rejuvenation Ampoule and peptides in general. Have you ever felt like after using peptides or growth factors you can spot some longer hair or hair growing on your face in general? It's especially visible with Copper Peptide - it's not a surprise since we use peptides in hair care products, for example. I'll share with you my secret how to use Cell Fusion C Laser Rejuvenation Ampoule. 


I'm not a fan of eyelash & eyebrows serums, even if castor oil is popular in Europe as an eyebrow serum, I prefer to put Cell Fusion C Laser Rejuvenation Ampoule instead because I can see that hair on my eyebrows are growing bit faster. Even my mom started to steal from me this serum so she can use it on her eyebrows 


I'm not a fan of my hairline, because my hairline is pale while my roots in the back of the hair are bit darker, and it has lots of sense, so to make my hair grow quicker and to see lots of baby hair I use shampoo mixed with scalp scrub (once or twice a week, I wash my hair every day) and then before I go to sleep I like to put Cell Fusion C Laser Rejuvenation Ampoule on my hairline. 

Cell Fusion C Laser Rejuvenation Ampoule - Price & Where to get it? 

Cell Fusion C Laser Rejuvenation Ampoule is an interesting product, you can buy it from Jolse, 30 ml bottle costs $32.30. I will add to you that Black Friday is coming, and Jolse will have some great offers - as always! Even if there's no Black Friday, you'll see there lots of products at great prices. 

Cell Fusion C Laser Rejuvenation Ampoule was a nice surprise for me, and I would recommend it if you're on retinol treatment or after a treatment, because it does magic. 

Do you know Cell Fusion? What do you think about this serum?
