Hydrating skincare products are very essential to your routine especially during the harmattan/winter season; the Celimax Real Noni line is exactly that.
I’ll be sharing a full review of the products, main ingredients and their benefits. This review will also include overall effectiveness, recommendations and a discount coupon code!
About the Celimax Noni Energy Kit
The Real Noni energy line is a collection by Celimax and the main ingredient is the Noni fruit extract (aka morinda citrifolia). The kit includes the Real noni moisture balancing toner, energy ampoule, energy repair cream and 5 pieces of energy ampoule masks.
Noni fruit is grown in South-pacific islands and contains over 200 types of minerals and vitamins. It’s well known for its hydrating, antioxidant, anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties.
You can purchase the kit on StyleKorean (currently over 65% off!). You can also buy each product individually, I’ll be adding the links under each product.
StyleKorean is a global South Korea-based eCommerce platform for shopping Korean skincare and beauty brands.
The Real Noni Energy Repair Cream
The Noni cream is a 50ml concentrated cream with 57% Noni fruit extract and seed oil. It claims to “soothe the skin and strengthen moisture barrier”. It also helps to “restore dry, damaged and irritated skin“. StyleKorean’s Naomi also stated that it melts into one’s skin and I was really curious to test out those claims.
The list is full of ingredients with hydrating, soothing and lots of other amazing benefits. As mentioned above, it’s infused with 57% noni fruit extract. It also has noni (morinda citrifolia) seed oil and ceramide.
Ceramide helps to strengthen the skin barrier and retain moisture. Products containing ceramides often give the skin a plumper, smoother and firmer feeling.
Other notable ingredients include niacinamide, hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid and the famous Centella Asciatica extract (CICA). It also has butylene glycol, adenosine, beta-glucan and lots of leaf extracts.
Adenosine is a KFDA-certified functional ingredient for wrinkle improvement. Beta-glucan is a humectant with hydrating properties and also helps to boosts skin barrier function.
Niacinamide and hyaluronic acid are also favored ingredients loved by all. CICA is the real OG ingredient in Korean skincare nowadays and it has numerous benefits to help your skin.
In summary, all of these ingredients contribute to the cream’s effectiveness.
I loovvvee the texture of this cream. It melts into your skin as claimed and disappears almost immediately. The moisturizers I’ve used tend to take a bit of rubbing but not this one.
Also, I love how it’s fragrance-free and still smells nice! It has a minty-green color and some kind of tea-tree smell. It also leaves a soft, soothing feeling and gives your skin a lustrous look (not oily!) .
For Application: You only need a pea-sized amount for the whole face. It tends to feel a little too thick if you apply more. However, you can use more during dry/winter seasons if you need the hydration.

The Real Noni Energy Ampoule Mask
It’s a facial mask that “nourishes the skin for visible plumping and radiance”. It claims to “rejuvenate and revitalise the skin” with the antioxidant and anti-aging properties of its ingredients. It also claims to “improve the skin elasticity” and comes in a pack of 5 pieces.
It has 71.77% noni fruit extract from the noni ampoule. It also has lots of ingredients that have featured in my previous reviews. Some of them include allantoin, panthenol, caprylic triglyceride and sodium hyaluronate. It also has ceramide, butylene glycol, adenosine and several leaf extracts.
Basically, most of them have antioxidant, moisturizing and soothing properties. They also help to relieve itching, reduce redness, wrinkle lines and improve skin texture.
I love how the mask is literally soaked with a whole bottle of the ampoule. It soaks up enough essence to transfer onto the skin. However, this made the mask quite difficult to separate (some got torn in the process).
It also smells really nice, just like the ampoule and sticks considerably well to the face. I did notice some of the feature holes were disproportionate though. My eyes couldn’t fit in well because the nose ridge was a bit narrow and it didn’t fit in other places too. The masks were most likely designed to fit the “small face” beauty standards but you could always give it a little tear if you have big features. Other than that, I absolutely love how it leaves a cool sensation on the skin.
Maybe it had to do with the mask not fitting but I also noticed my upper lip (mustache region) felt firm/tightened. My mother and sister also tried them out and shared good reviews! My mum liked how it felt on her face and my sister also mentioned the tightening of her upper lip region.
The instructions suggested use after applying the moisture balancing toner. I left it on for about 20 minutes to ensure my skin soaked in all the essence (the instructions says 10-20 minutes). The sheet was almost dry after removal and my face didn’t feel slimy afterwards. I patted the rest in and my face actually felt plump and moisturized.
Tip: There’s almost always content left in the pack after pulling the sheet out. You could rub it on your hands to make maximum use of it!

Would I repurchase? If I was looking to hydrate and soothe my skin, I’d definitely repurchase this set.
