This is the second and final part for the Celimax Real Noni line review. In my last post, I shared all the details about the Noni energy repair cream and ampoule masks.
This post is a full review of the moisture balancing toner and energy ampoule, notable ingredients and their benefits. It also includes the overall effectiveness, recommendations and a discount coupon code!
About the Celimax Noni Energy Kit
I shared an overview about the entire kit in the previous post.
You can purchase it on StyleKorean (currently over 65% off!). You can also buy each product individually, I’ll be adding the links under each product.
The Real Noni Moisture Balancing Toner
It’s a “lightweight, low pH toner with gentle exfoliating properties”. It has soothing and hydrating properties and “helps to restore overall skin texture”. It also “enhances the skin’s elasticity and moisture barrier”. I was pretty excited about this one because of Naomi’s review. I also wanted to to try it out as a hydrating mask!
It contains 80.1% Noni fruit extract and 0.1ppm of Noni seed oil. These two provide ample moisture and help to soothe and nourish the skin. It also has 5% Amino acid complex (17 amino acids with similar components). The amino acid complex helps in strengthening the moisture barrier to keep the skin hydrated. It also helps in improving the skin texture and some of the acids have anti-aging properties.
The amino acids listed include: glycine, serine, alanine, proline, tyrosine, arginine, phenulalanine, lysine, threonine, valine, isoleucine, histidine, cysteine, methionine, glutamic acid and aspartic acid.
Hydroxyethyl urea helps to keep the skin hydrated and promotes cell turnover. Betaine has hydrating and anti-aging properties and also helps to calm irritated skin.
This is actually my favorite product in the set. I really loved the smell and it gives a soothing feeling upon application.
It has a water-like texture and doesn’t feel sticky at all. It also absorbs quickly into the skin and doesn’t feel drying afterwards. Since it had exfoliating properties, it helped improve my skin texture and the pores around my cheeks seemed to be barely visible.
For Application: I used it as my toner and exfoliant for two weeks and applied it after cleansing using cotton pads. You can also use it like toner pads. Soak your cotton pads with the toner and place on your cheeks for a couple minutes.

The Real Noni Energy Ampoule
It’s a “concentrated ampoule which helps to revitalize and nourish the skin”. It offers “deep hydration and helps to calm irritated skin“. It also has antiaging and antioxidant properties. I was curious about its texture in the PR video and I wanted to confirm it was truly non-sticky.
It has 71.77% noni fruit extract and seed oil. It also contains over 0.04% adenosine. Adenosine helps with improving wrinkle lines.
Other notable ingredients include ceramide, allantoin, betaine and sodium hyaluronate. It also has butylene glycol, 1,2-hexanediol and several leaf oils and leaf extracts. All of these ingredients have featured in my previous reviews and they all have great benefits to the skin.
Basically, most of them have antioxidant, anti-irritant and hydrating properties. They also help to relieve itching and improve skin elasticity and wrinkle lines.
The first thing I noticed was the dropper. It was very unique and automatically picks up the ampoule as you open the bottle.
I also love its texture and it absorbs easily into the skin! It doesn’t feel sticky on the face but it leaves a sticky feeling on the fingers.
Another thing I love about the ampoule is its smell. It smells just like the rest of the products in the kit. However, I noticed the aftermath smell was a bit different. I’m not really a fan of the smell but it fades quickly.
For Application: I use one pump (a full dropper) for the entire face. The ampoule dispenses unto the skin by pressing the upper “button” on the dropper.
A tip is to make sure you hear a click sound when you put the dropper back into the bottle. Afterwards, the ampoule fills up the dropper once opened again.
Shop the Noni Energy ampoule on:
– Style Korean for $18.90 (currently 33% off)
– Yesstyle for $19.86 (currently 5% off, use my code KHAIRAH21 for extra 2-5% off)
My favorite product was the moisture balancing toner.
I used them over a period of two weeks to form a proper review and I was quite pleased with them.
All of the products had warning instructions against possible side effects on exposure to direct sunlight. Because of that, I incorporated the kit into my nighttime routine. I also tried it a couple times in the morning and I didn’t experience any side effects.
In summary, I love the products and I think it’s a great addition to your skincare stash for the dry and winter seasons.
Would I recommend? Absolutely. If you have dry, dehydrated, irritated skin or experience some itching and redness, this set will help you properly hydrate, soothe and restore your skin.
Would I repurchase? If I was looking to hydrate and soothe my skin, I’d definitely repurchase this set.
