Treatments (Face) -CLINIQUE -Fresh Pressed Daily Booster with Pure Vitamin C 10%

foto

I am always on the hunt for a good vitamin C based serum, and this one proves to be very good.
Once you've mastered how to get the little bottle open and working (you need to remove a foil first, then press the rubber buton and then shake well the powder to dissolve into the liquid), you are set.
Of course, this concoction is not very stable and it is recommended you use it within 7 days.
I do this a twice a year, one month cure in spring and autumn, when I need my skin to deeply renovate.
It certainly works, proven that you use it morning and evenings. it will smooth skin and my hyperpigmentation spots will be doing better after the one month cure!
Yes it is truly expensive, at each bottle priced at Eur 15 (and you get less than 10 ml of product), and you need 4 for a month.
but it is worth it.

Moisturizers -CLINIQUE -Moisture Surge 72 Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator

I just threw out what remained of my jar because I put this on (wore no makeup) before I left for a crack-of-dawn doctor's appointment and my doctor asked me what I was doing for my rosacea!? I don't have rosacea- this "moisturizer" had made my skin red and slightly rough. I looked in the mirror in her exam room and was shocked- I looked like I had a sunburn.

This product gave me bad cystic acne on my acne prone skin. It works well under makeup (i use city block spf40) but left me feeling dry as the day wore along. Jar packaging is also unsanitary and leads to a loss of antioxidants. Would not recommend for acne prone skin.

I tried this again after many years and find it to be very simplistic. I mostly get little girl's lily of the valley, and not much else. Simple, sort of boring for me now, but inoffensive and easy to wear, certainly. and it IS happy, as advertised!

Cleansers -CLINIQUE -Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

on 2/18/2019 4:14:00 PM

This is a good cleansing balm for sure - it removes a full face with no problem and does good job with waterproof eyeliner and mascara without too much rubbing. There are two reasons why I can't give it five stars though - the first is that it's just not quiiiite as good as the Dermalogica Precleanse balm, which really breaks down waterproof mascara like it's nothing, and the second is that the packaging is mad annoying. With balms I like to get a little on my hands and rub off my face makeup, then go back in for a bit more and get my eye makeup. Because this is in a tub you have to wash your hands before going back in to get that second bit or you'll contaminate the contents of the tub with your dirty fingers and it's just annoying. That might sound like a small thing to some, but it compared to the handy, hygienic squeezy tube that the Dermalogica comes in it's a real con for me. Having said that, the value for money on this is phenomenal; it's only £24 and lasted me 6 months having used it almost every day. Compared to the £44 price tag of the Dermalogica, which lasts me only 2 months, this really is a worth it.

Mascara -CLINIQUE -Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara

foto

the texture looks very dry and the color is a bit of a duller black, very clumpy looking and spidery looking. It does thicken lashes but not very lengthening and hard to layer coats between coats and lashes dont look even or hold curled lashes up well

Moisturizers -CLINIQUE -Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate

Normally my skin is pretty combination - a bit more on the oily side, but the last couple of winters have made my skin much more dry this time of the year than ever before. I decided to try this and it's so nice! Now, for me it provides just enough extra hydration, but I really think if your skin leans dryer, this won't do a whole lot for you. The 72 hour hydration claim is a bit laughable - but so many companies pull those bs claims. One thing I especially love about this is that if I had to, I wouldn't feel completely awful running out of the house with just this on. This leaves little to ZERO shine - so obv I won't look like I have makeup on (eek!), but I don't look like a grease monster either. I have found so far it's about the only moisture product I could wear and just add some mascara and concealer and I won't look completely scary :P It's pretty scentless and I do feel like my skin looks a bit more glowy than usual.

I love the gel consistency, it blends in very easily/dries fairly quickly but what remains is a slight tackiness that I personally don't mind. If I wear this during the day with makeup, I think it works so well as a primer for my foundation. I have known about Clinique for years and often overlook it because it's not super trendy or flashy, but most of their products are so nice and at a fair price point. I am going to try and remember to repurchase every winter.

Cleansers -CLINIQUE -Take the Day Off Cleansing Milk

foto

This does nothing. It doesn’t even remove makeup and I don’t even wear a lot of it. I like to use an oil based or milk based cleanser to remove my makeup before my actual face wash. Once I wash my face with this there is still a ton of tinted moisturizer and gunk left in my face. Yuck !!! Wish I returned this the first day I used it but instead I decided to give it a chance. I’m now stuck with an awful cleanser. Do not buy.


Lip Treatments -CLINIQUE -Superbalm Lip Treatment

on 2/16/2019 2:40:00 PM

I have extremely dry and chapped lips that bleed very easily. I’ve tried everything.
There are three things that help me to keep my lips healthy:
- Clinique Repairwear (the silver stick, definitely not this green tube!))
- Biotherm Beurre de Levres
- And good old Vaseline, especially the Lip therapy with aloe vera and this pink version.
I have been using these three products for a year now and my lips look and feel fabulous.

This superbalm is very sticky, I don’t like it at all. It doesn’t repair my lips when they are chapped and it doesn’t prevent them from cracking. The silver Repairwear is WAY better.

I have extremely dry and chapped lips that bleed very easily. I’ve tried everything. EVERYTHING!
There are three things that now help me to keep my lips healthy:
- Clinique Repairwear (the silver stick, not to be confused with the green tube that is called Superbalm, the green one doesn’t work at all)
- Biotherm Beurre de Levres
- And good old Vaseline, especially the version with the aloe vera and the rosy version.
I have been using these three products for a year now and my lips look and feel really good now. I really really recommend these products!

I have tried so many different mascaras and I always end up coming back to Clinique. I like the one in the light green tube though. Lengthening. it's awesome.

Expensive product but it works.
On first glance,it is a solidified white wax like consistency but when you put it on your hands it melts and transforms into an oil.
It melts everything even waterproof mascara though you do need to massage it in the skin for a longer time when you have foundation on so it removes all traces of it.It'd be advisable if after using this balm,you thoroughly cleanse your face with a facial wash AND use a toner after to make sure you have removed every last trace of makeup left.
Packaging is fine,not very hygienic though as you have to put your fingers in to get the product out unless you use a small spatula.Ideally I'd prefer it if it was in a liquid formula with a pump for more hygienic reasons.


Lipstick -CLINIQUE -Dramatically Different Lipstick Shaping Lip Colour

on 2/16/2019 2:48:00 AM

foto

I didn't like these lipsticks. I much preferred the Long Last lipsticks, which they replaced with the shaping lipsticks. Only some of the Long Last lipstick shades were carried over into the new formula. And with the new formula, you get less actual color because part of the lipstick is a white moisturizer core, BUT the price is higher than that of the Long Last lipsticks. So for me, these shaping lipsticks are a watered-down product. I expect better for the price. I feel as if I saw this moisturizing core idea in a cheap drugstore brand at some point.
