Moisturizers -Clinique -Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly

I'm so happy to have discovered this - I only wish I'd found it earlier in the summer! I have ridiculously oily teenage skin, only I'm actually 56. I've tried many "light" moisturizers that did little to control shine, but this one is the best I've found. The texture is very thin and light, and absorbs quickly without leaving behind a sticky or tacky finish. I can apply my makeup within a minute of putting on this moisturizer, and it creates a smooth, almost primer-like finish. And it wears well: my makeup doesn't separate or slide off, and while I still need to blot a bit by midday, my skin looks reasonably fresh through the day. I have also been using it as a night moisturizer, and it has worked well during the hot, humid summer months. If you have dry or combo skin, this wouldn't work for you, at least not on its own - and, come winter, I might need a heavier night cream, at the very least. But this has been a dream solution in the summer heat, and I am delighted to have found it.



Lip Gloss -Clinique -Marimekko x Clinique Pop Splash Lip Gloss

I have just one of these, in Espresso Pop, picked up at Sephora when it was a Weekly Wow deal, for $9, which makes it a hell of a lot better deal than the standard $19 or so it normally costs.

The packaging is cute, with (in this case) a cap with a blue wavy print on it.

The gloss itself looks really dark in the tube, a deep reddish brown, or maybe a warmer berry brown. The contents are slightly deceptive, however. Swatched on my hand and it's a red-brown color, kind of medium-sheer opacity.

The doe-foot applicator it comes with is nice, and applies with a comfy firm squish (no hard edges, and there's enough pad for it to feel somewhat luxurious and plush). There's no scent or flavor here, and on my light skin and pale lips it looks pretty natural. If I build it up more it gets a bit into vampy territory, but not quite, I prefer to not apply it too heavily for fear it might look goopy and like it would run into lip lines. A moderate application and I get a nice amount of color that reminds me of a sheer wash of Clinique's Almost Lipstick in Black Honey, but a touch warmer (if memory serves right, as I'm in between tubes of it right now), and glossier.
The formula, like I said, is glossy, but it's not sticky. It's nice and comfortably slick and feels soothing to me.

Staying power isn't great, as it's a true gloss, but it does wear down nicely to the point where it feels like it's evolved into a nice balm.

This will end up being a nice little friend to tote around in my purse or pocket, as it's a quick way to dress the lips in a bit of color and keep them feeling soothed, all without worrying about a cap popping off and making a mess of bags or clothing.


I'd give it five lippies all around, but am taking one off for the $19 price tag. It's a tiny bit steep for a semi-sheer gloss.


Sunscreen -Clinique -Super City Block SPF 40

foto

A product I've been using for at least 10 years, probably closer to 15. I have fair, sensitive skin with a touch of rosacea - it burns easily and I can tan pretty well, with freckles. A really superb product for coverage, SPF and non-clogging, non-greasy protection that has really protected my skin well over the years - not just sun protection, which is the most important protection, but it is called "Citiblock" because it works like a foundation, too - not as pretty or smooth without precise colour matching - but they have improved their formulations over the years and this provides a balance of good coverage, protection, and almost-a-foundation that I just put makeup over. No chemical smell, although I have noticed that if you rub your eyes, you will feel it sting (the chemicals are there but are "low dosage"). Not a 100% physical block, but a combination that is really non-irritating and provides better sun coverage than most products I've tried. I am a fan of Clinique mascaras and this product and almost never buy other Clinique products. But this product stands out, especially for fair, sensitive skin. Have lost count of how many times I've repurchased.

Skincare - Face -Clinique -3 Step System

To begin with, the soap that they claim is for dry skin contains sodium sulfate which can resurface the skin or produce more oil. Sulfate was used decades ago for beauty products and then they realized that it was something aggressive for the skin. The tonic contains an alcohol that it’s supposed to be special for the skin but it stills being alcohol. I think the only product that is worth is the moisturizer the gel and the lotion... Investigate well the ingredients of the products that are put on your face and do not get carried away by marketing


Moisturizers -Clinique -Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

This is my HG moisturizer, and I end up regretting it when I stray to try something else. Anything heavier, and I’m an oil slick, anything lighter and my face is flake city. Perfect for my combination skin!
