Cleansers -Clinique - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

on 8/18/2017 6:24:00 PM

I added this to my routine as a makeup remover before my usual cleanser. It did work well and I found it pleasant enough to use. Sadly, after a few days, it gave me cystic acne. While I do get the occasional hormonal spot, I never sprout multiple cysts at once like I did when I tried TTDO.

Be careful if you're remotely acne prone. Try a sample if possible and patch test before you slather this over your entire face.

Treatments (Face) -Clinique - Turnaround Revitalizing Serum

foto

The turn around serum is the best product from Clinique i ever used, the results are noticeable after few days only, my skin looks more radiant, smoother and more even. It is not a cheap product however i think it worths to splurge yourself considering the results.
Best product ever!

Cleansers -Clinique - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

on 8/17/2017 9:22:00 PM

My requirements for a cleanser are that they're 1) makeup removing 2) non drying 3) don't sting the eyes 4) don't break me out and 5) are preferably fragrance free. Happy to report that TTDO passes on all five counts with flying colors! I use it to wash my face when I'm wearing makeup and it gets everything off, doesn't leave my dry skin feeling tight, but also doesn't require a secondary cleanser or feel like it's leaving a gross residue on my face. It doesn't break me out like a lot of drugstore cream cleansers and doesn't sting my eyes, which is important for an eye makeup remover but surprisingly not a gimme. To use it optimally, apply to a DRY face, work it in, and THEN splash your face with water. You need much less product this way, especially when you need to get off stubborn eye makeup. I'm working my way through a few different cleansing balmns (right now I'm using and loving Farmacy's) but I'll probably come back to this one because, simply put, it works and the price is right.


Masks -Clinique - City Block Charcoal Mask And Scrub

i have tried several clay masks and this is my absolute favourite that i have tried for many reasons:
- the consistency is thick and applies so beautifully on the skin. I personally am not a fan of masks that are runny where the skin shows through
- the price point is great for the amount that you recieve
- the packaging of the flip cap bottle is extremely convenient
- the mask only takes 5-10 minutes to actually do its job of removing excess oil
- i love that the beads are gentle but effective when washing off

and the MAIN reason i like this mask is because it calms my skin down drastically. I mean, even after ive popped anything - my skin tone is more even.

My skin reacts truly to everything ... but this has never aggravated it once. LOVE!!!

My new holy grail foundation. It feels do light on my skin, once it sets. Long wearing and great color selection avsilable.


Fragrances -Clinique - Aromatics Elixir

This is an amazing fragrance. I liked it better in the dupe form I got from eBay I guess the only taste I got is in my mouth. I have a purse sized spray. I went for Gabrielle chanel in my last perfume spree over this. I wished it came in a rollerball. It's cold, austere, wintry I can't wait to wear it in Fall! It goes well w brick lipstick (Clinique angel red?!). Too much can make you feel like you have soap in your mouth. I say wear it in good health!? Prost!! "Hast du nix von barbelchen gehört? Gar kein Wort" Makes me think of Goethe, Kafka, Herman Hesse (Heavy Literatur), soaring cathedrals, catholic icons, roman crosses, gothic things. Just heavily incensed & powdery.


Pressed Powders -Clinique - Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder

on 8/14/2017 10:39:00 AM

I'm up in the air about this product, but I love the shade Stay Neutral - it matches my skin with light foundation perfectly.

However, it doesn't keep me matte. I apply it and about 1.5 hours later (or sooner) I'm shiny on my forehead and nose. Maybelline's Fit me powder lasts just as long, and the price is WAY less.

I'm leaving this open ended because I plan to use this for awhile, and I love the finish, but I just wish something that was "matte" actually kept me matte. I'm starting to think that nothing will mattify my face - which is probably because of my benzoyl peroxide gel that I apply to my face morning and night. Ugh. I'll also note that on my skin, I found this powder to cake up if I applied it as a blotting powder throughout the day. By the end of the day - my skin was pretty cakey. Maybelline's does NOT. Ugh UGH! I will not repurchase, but plan to use up as a setting powder only after foundation application. My Fit me powder will be used for the rest of the day to touch up since it does not cake up.

** updated - it hasn't even been one day of wearing this powder and I'm as dewy/shiny as I am when I wear my $5.99 Fit Me Matte and Poreless powder. For $26+ - this is a ripoff (for me). Ugh. I've blotted and reapplied and it lasts maybe an hour on me. And I'm doing nothing but sitting in a cold office setting.

FYI - I applied this powder to one side of my face, and then the $20 cheaper Maybelline Fit me matte and poreless to the other side - they looked and sat identical on my face and wore the exact same. Both sides got shiny at the same time - both looked identical. Save yourself the money and try Fit Me Matte and Poreless first.

I consistently have dark circles and never really find a product that actually works for me. This one was no exception, unfortunately.

I bought this to use along with my Clinique eye cream. The only good thing I see is the roller ball feels good on my skin. But the product in it has done nothing for my puffiness. Sorry Clinique, this product is a waste!

Liquid -Clinique - Anti Blemish Solutions Liquid Make Up

on 8/13/2017 3:58:00 PM

I have used this product for a very long time because it is hard to find a foundation that looks as natural as this and you need very little of it, but this product is better for an oily skin tone as it can make a normal/little dry skin tone look a little matte and dry, so I am searching for another one that will suit my skin better.


Liquid -Clinique - Stay-Matte Oil-Free Makeup

on 8/12/2017 2:33:00 PM

This foundation is not impessive in my opinion. I have oily skin and it does control my oil, I will give it that. I bought this for the warmer weather. Sounded ideal. But this foundation clings to the very fine lines under my eyes and on the side of my mouth and emphasises them like no other foundation I have tried. For example: Dermablend smooth camo foundation (not  totally matte), Loreal infallible pro matte, Maybelle fit me matte and poreless. I have tried a normal amount of foundation, and a very light amount. I've tried different primers, setting powders (finely milled powders like RCMA), and no powders. Powder on top of the foundation or on top of the primer before the fiundation. All with the same result. And as for staying power, it is more expensive than the drug store brands and cheaper than the Dermablend but doesn't have the staying power over 4 to 6 hours. Looks great when first applied but then breaks down and all but melts off my face. And resistant to sweat...nope. I sweat just a little and it comes off on my finger or tissue (barely touching it, I had to test the claim) and it leaves a bare spot. Thankfully I only tested on my forehead. I definitely won't repurchase.

Toners -Clinique - Clarifying Lotion #2

foto

This product feels way too strong and my skin feels dryer than ever after using this. Also, the smell is way too much for me (I can almost taste it when I put it on my skin) and I'm not usually sensitive to smell. I can't say if it yields long term results because I only could stand to use it once. Too strong for me.

Moisturizers -Clinique - Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief

I am currently using this moisturiser day and night and I LOVE IT. I have normal, kind of dry skin which is also quite sensitive skin and this is great. It doesn't break me out, absorbs pretty quickly, really hydrates my skin, isn't greasy or oily and is a reasonable price (for a teen). It's great for everyday use, but if required for more hydration at night you can add a face oil before putting this cream on. LOVE LOVE LOVE.


Only thing is it is a fairly small jar but lasts half a year (roughly)


Treatments (Eye) -Clinique - Even Better Eyes, Dark Circle Corrector

on 8/11/2017 11:53:00 AM

Don't expect this to cure your dark circles--a cream can't do that. However this is a great eye cream to use before applying concealer. The tube is easy to use, it's slightly pink toned and not greasy so helps your concealer's camouflage. Also on my puffy, sore, tired undereyes the metal tip feels cooling and soothing.
