Eyeliner -CLINIQUE -Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen

on 9/20/2018 9:27:00 AM

A few years ago, my mom passed this off to me. It ended up replacing my old favorite eyeliner (and gel liner) and I've bought it twice since. I know some people have said it bleeds and smudge but I've never had that experience. It goes on easily, opaque, and sharp and comes off gently with a wipe.

My only complaint is that if you're not careful putting the cap on, the tip can get frayed over time. Usually I'm nearly out of product by the time this happens anyways, though.



Treatments (Face) -CLINIQUE -Smart Custom repair serum

First of all, I must say that Clinique products rarely cause my skin to breakout.  The Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum did cause a few breakouts but that was at the beginning of using it, after a few weeks this did stop.  This does have some ingredients that can cause acne and breakouts so I assume that is why.  The other disappointment is that after a few months of use I didn't really notice any visible difference.  I have had much, much better luck with the Clinique Smart Treatment Oil.  And the third thing I wasn't excited about was the inclusion of grapefruit peel oil for fragrance.  The grapefruit peel oil was higher up on the ingredient list than i would have liked.  In my opinion, the Clinique Smart Custom Repair Serum is better for people who don't have any specific aging problems they want to address but those just looking for a product that has a decent overall formula but not looking to treat fine lines, hyperpigmentation, sagging skin, etc.  I found that this did contain beneficial ingredients but not ingredients that can really focus on one skincare issue.   If you have normal to dry skin I do recommend the Clinique Smart Treatment Oil- this product's results were noticeable in the first week of use.

Foundations -CLINIQUE -CliniqueFIT Workout Makeup

on 9/20/2018 6:40:00 AM

I remember when Clinique released all of their CliniqueFIT products, and I remember briefly scanning many of their ingredients list and not being super impressed. Recently I was at the Cosmetics Company Store and I saw a few of the CliniqueFIT products for decent prices so I picked up their CliniqueFIT Workout Makeup SPF 40 to give it a try. Actually, I really liked how this "foundation" looked aesthetically. This applies easily with a damp beauty blender since it is basically a very liquid formula. This sets reasonably quickly to a very matte finish. I thought this help up okay through heat and humidity as well as a good workout. This didn't settle into fine lines much either. What I didn't like about this is that denatured alcohol (the bad, drying kind) is way up there in the ingredients list. I also feel like my skin didn't like other factors about this because I ended up with a couple breakouts that I attribute to the CliniqueFIT Workout Makeup. Really wish they could have make this either without or using much, much less denatured alcohol. My video review can be seen here:




Moisturizers -CLINIQUE -Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate

on 9/20/2018 12:30:00 AM

This is was my first experience with a gel moisturizer, which at the time I thought was decent if unremarkable. Having since tried 3 other gel moisturizers I realize this one succeeds where others fail. This is a great summer moisturizer for combo-oily skin in that it is light, sinks in fast, and doesn't leave skin looking shiny like most gels do. It plays very well with all my serums and treatments, no pilling or streaking. It is NOT a heavy moisturizer and will not be enough for dry or thirsty skin (though it might be a good hydrating pre-moisturizer serum for those folks). In that sense the name is misleading, so I understand some of the negative reviews from folks who didn't get what they wanted. I would not have purchased it if the sales assistant hadn't told me it was the one to pick for lightweight oily skin hydration. She was right!


Cleansers -CLINIQUE -Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

foto

This product took a long time for me to buy because:
1. it's expensive ($39 CAD)
2. I have more than enough makeup cleansers.

However, I am done rubbing my makeup off with cotton pad, it's never as precise as my milk/cleansers that I can get into my lashes with, and I prefer makeup removal done in one fell swoop. That doesn't necessarily mean one product, but it means that when I leave my sink, I started with a full face and left with a bare one. My lashes are naturally light and it's really easy to tell when my makeup remover hasn't done its job, and for me, thorough eye makeup removal is so important.

I can confirm that this product alone gets all of my makeup off, and my skin doesn't feel greasy or "undone" afterwards. Personally, I warm it up in my fingers, and gently rub my lashes, my brows, and my cheeks, and wash off with another cleanser afterwards. It gets the black mascara off my light lashes, no problem, and I like that it doesn't irritate my eyes, I can still open them to see how the removal process is going. I typically need 1/2 a tablespoon of product it seems (sounds weird, not sure else what to compare it to, LOL) for my entire face if I've worn full makeup that day.

If you have difficulty removing makeup, wear a lot of makeup, or are lazy with the removal process altogether, I would definitely recommend this product. The price tag can be a shock but for the ease of use, it's completely worth it. Just simply grab a little bit, massage your lashes and face, and your makeup is done for. And I'm sure this jar will last me the better part of a year at this rate.
