Its only been 2 weeks but I am so in love with this line and specifically this product that I had to start my review. The biggest complaint I read before buying was the fragrance and price. I prefer this product to not have the fragrance but it's not bad. The price is high but if you saw my skin, you would invest. I don't think you can truly give it a chance with one tiny sample so try and get a few to test it out. My skin stays properly moisturized all day something only La Mer has been able to do but it does it without the greasy sheen. It also minimized my pores and improved the overall look to my skin. Perhaps it is all a product of being moisturized. I will update in a few weeks.

Yes, this is a nice cream... I had two small jars as a trial offer, and was glad as I would never ever purchase it for the enormous retail price tag it has! I mean , it is a good treatment, intensely nourishing and lifting - I used that in a period when my skin was particularly stressed.
It works, but I would not call it a miracle.
Many other treatment creams as as effective as this one, and are more reasonably priced (check YLS Temps Majeur, Prodigy, or even the Absolue line from Lancome, not to talk about Perricone, Hormeta just to stay in Switzerland, Murad or Erno Lazslo).
Has a lovely texture and smell. Not greasy, soaks in. Good. But not worth the price.
PS: they could do much, much better on the marketing side. The online shop sucks and they leaftlets inside their products are absolutely below the minuim level required for such high end (super high end stuff!! a pot is worth 300$!!!).
The translations are absoutely insufficient & lousy : if you have the chance check the Italian version.... full of gross mistakes... & consider that Italian is one of the 3 official languages of Switzerland!! Cellcosmet: invest more on your translating services!!!

Patient history: combination skin, flaky on cheeks, oily t-zone, breaks out (both small things and cysts), became particularly sensitive during pregnancy.
I got a 3ml tester of UltraVital, and managed to use it during like 10 or more evenings (all Cellcosmet creams spread wonderfully, very economical). I adore my skin now! It's not dry anymore, also not oily in the morning, pores started to disappear, breakouts disappeared (!!!), tone became more even. I even love myself without makeup now. I'm 30, but probably will be using UltraVital as a night cream in future. Such a wonderful moisturizer. Tiny minus: it's kinda shiny on face, and I always preferred gels/emulsions that sink into skin without trace.... But as long as is doesn't make my skin oilier, it's fine, I can live with this texture :)

My skin, early 20s, easily congested porous skin, prone to dehydration, very oily t-zone, fast skin turnover, sensitive to acids, some redness from over zealous scrubbing.
I had been using the salon version of the Concentrated cream which is the second most intensive cream apart from the Ultra Vital. Despite my skin being somewhat "acne prone" I have absolutely no issues with Cellcosmet at all. I use NIA24 as a treatment cream, and Cellcosmet in between.
I prefer the PUMP version as it is more hygenic, there is no difference in cellular concentration between the pump and jar, except the jar is a lot cheaper. The consistency of Ultra Vital is quite different from Concentrated. Ultra Vital is more serum like and spreads less easily, I think the serum texture is because there is a very high concentration of cellular extracts rather than base fillers. I have to use this over damp skin otherwise it dries up before I can apply evenly to the skin. I prefer Ultra Vital over Concentrated! I am starting to spot/patch treat acne with BPO and azelic acid, so I am very careful to protect my skin barrier during treatment.
Ultra Vital has a slightly more "woody" fragrance and is less cloyingly feminine than Concentrated. After applying to well prepared skin (scrub or mask, then Activator gel and tonic) it does leave a slight shine to the face and feels stickier than Concentrated but it is not an issue as long as my skin does not get clogged the next morning. I find this suitable both for day and night use despite having very oily skin.
Yes Cellcosmet products are extremely expensive, and I am still very young for such "intensive" creams, but they work so well for my skin I consider it an investment, I save on having to try different product lines and I'm sure I will look back and be grateful when I'm 50.

I don't even need to use foundation! I honestly do not need it! will repurchase of course, I use this as a night cream, the preventive as a day cream and the gel activator,HUGE RAVE!
