Got this with a GWP. No way in hell will I try it though because they added Myristyl Myristate which causes breakouts. So disappointed.


Sunscreen -Clinique -Super City Block SPF 40

on 11/10/2017 11:48:00 AM

One of the sunscreens that i've used and am satisfied with. It's non sticky, absorbs rly fast. And the tint is very subtle. Does not have a strong scent like most sunscreens. great formula that sits on top of moisturizers and beneath makeup rly well. One thing is i find that when i apply makeup straightaway after super city block, the makeup goes on nicely. But if i wait for half an hour before putting on makeup, when i put makeup on it will start to flake.

Toners -Clinique -Clarifying Lotion #3

on 11/10/2017 5:16:00 AM

I've been using Clinique Clarifying Lotion #3 or #4 on and off since I was in my teens. I'm in my 60's now. My skin still has a tendency to oiliness, even at this age, and the clarifying lotion helps to truly clean out my pores when nothing else does. My current routine is Ernest Laszlo and, while my skin had been looking good, perhaps it was the change in seasons...it became muddy looking with a few small blemishes. I pulled out my Clinique #3 and within a day the muddiness was gone and my skin was - yes - clarified. I always have this in my cabinet.

I recently started using the overnight mask and I’m in love! I have combination skin and this product helps keep me moisturized and my skin hydrated. It does not feel cakey or oily in any way.

Cleansers -Clinique -Take the Day Off Cleansing Oil

on 11/8/2017 10:35:00 AM

This cleansing oil does not make my face feel too oily unlike the Shu Uemura ones. It has the right consistency, and I really enjoy massaging it all over my face to remove my makeup. A little pump goes a long way as the oil is very effective in dissolving makeup, including stubborn waterproof eye makeup! I am impressed. It dissolves everything in seconds. There is also no residue left after rinsing. I did not experience any break out or stinging around my eyes throughout my use. I honestly cannot find anything I don't like about this product.

Masks -Clinique -Moisture Surge Overnight Mask

Just finished the mini version of this that comes with the moisturiser and eye cream set. LOVE IT. It makes my skin so SOFT and smooth! The moisturiser is not so special tho, unless paired with this product. my skin naturally feels moisturised and hydrated. Before, my skin would feel dry until I applied moisturiser. but using this as part of my skincare makes my skin feel hydrated at all times. I wanna buy the full size!!


Cleansers -Clinique -Acne Solutions Antibacterial Soap

on 11/7/2017 4:07:00 AM

Got this to use on my back, shoulders and chest after fearing that my benzoyl peroxide bar wasn't getting washed off properly and might stain some of my clothes. The Neutrogena Acne Body wash with Salicylic Acid never worked, in fact it always made me more spotty and congested as if it never really cleaned anything. Seeing as this Clinique bar has the same active ingredient I was skeptical. It lathers well when swiped on a back brush and rinses off in such a way that leaves my skin soft but never feeling congested. I had my fiance take a picture of my back and to my surprise it was much less red, irritated and spotty. Initially the price for a bar of body soap is ridiculous but the fact that it comes with a soap dish and cap makes it worth it.

Liquid -Clinique -Anti Blemish Solutions Liquid Make Up

on 11/6/2017 7:35:00 AM

I bought this product as a friend recommended it to me. Since a year, I suddenly have very sensitive skin and I get pimples and inflammations very easily. I had high hopes regarding this product, but after 2 weeks of using it I decided to give the foundation to this friend as it really doesn't work for my skin. As I have sensitive dry skin, this foundation dries up on my skin resulting in very patchy and cakey skin after a few hours of applying the foundation. I have tried several other methods (several primers, serums to hydrate my skin more) etc. but nothing works. I would definitely not recommend buying this product if you have dry skin as it just doesn't work.

Moisturizers -Clinique -Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

on 11/5/2017 9:14:00 PM

I adore this. I've been using it in small amounts as a primer and in copious amounts as a night cream for the better part of 5 years as I've seen my skin go from quite oily to chronically dry (hello 30s!). Never breaks me out, has no smell, no white sheen or pigment. I use the squeezy bottle because I found the pump gets clogged. My only complaint.

Masks -Clinique -City Block Charcoal Mask And Scrub

on 11/4/2017 12:53:00 PM

foto

This is an effective mask/scrub, particles are concentrated and was very drawing. I could not leave this one on for too long and less is more. I feel with clay masks, there is not that much difference since they are similar in performance. I prefer the lumene clay mask to this since it has a very similar feel without being so industrial feeling. If you are seriously oily or clogged you will like this. I will not repurchase since there are many alternative options at much cheaper and the performance of this does not justify the additional cost. I enjoyed finishing this and would recommend to oily-acne prone complexions.


Liquid -Clinique -Even Better Glow Light Reflecting Makeup SPF 15

on 11/4/2017 1:43:00 AM

Tried this because the MUA thought it would be good though I was hesitate. I have used the original Even Better and it was pretty good. I always use Mac Nourishing Waterproof in NW 25 and love it but it the winter want a lighter foundation. The original even better is pretty good as well and the Clinique redness solutions. This however was off. Not sure if it was the the color (vanilla) don’t think so... or just did not like the formula. I have tried tons of high end foundations and this looked like a mess. I did not like the luminous sheen too it. Emphasized my fine lines and looked shiny. Also the color seemed to get darker and darker throughout the day. This is a light coverage foundation and did nothing for my skin. I question was it the color?? I think it was a mix but even with the perfect color this stuff is not for me. Aged me and made my face look dirty!!! No way. If anything I will use the original Even Better. Anything is way better than this stuff.


Liquid -Clinique -Beyond Perfecting Foundation & Concealer

I purchased and tried about 5 high end foundations this month. I have combo skin, and this was the ONLY ONE that didn't leave dry patches on my cheeks. It has a dewy finish, which I like but it does make my skin look oily sometimes.

Cleansers -Clinique -Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

on 11/2/2017 6:13:00 AM

AMAZING PRODUCT.

Honestly, my skin is so weird. I would say I have normal skin that tends to get more oily in the summer and drier all other seasons, especially my eyes are dry all year long. I also may be alitle bit oily in the T-zone whenever I happen to be very serious with my skin routine, but still I could not say I have comboskin since it literally is different every month!
So I have found that products for normal to dry skin and only sometimes combo skin work the best for me. BUT I NEVER BUY PRODUCTS for OILY SKIN. I wanted to make that clear for everyone.

Taking all that into consideration, this balm has become an essential part of my skin routine. First of all it actually takes off all of your makeup without having to overly brush your eyes to get off that little bit of annoying mascara that always remains after the first cleanse. Also, even though it always gets in my eyes it never stings or bother me in any way. It causes no irritation at all and it also feels very moisturizing. I believe it helped me a lot to deal with the dryness of my skin, and even when I might get a bit of an oilier forehead it is still my go-to cleanser. But, since I am a fan of korean beuaty skin-care routine, sometimes (depending on my skin needs-situation) I might use another water or gel cleanser after this for a double cleanse. But usually, when I used to only use gel-oil cleansers they woyld always dry out my skin. So the combination of the two is perfect for me.

But as I said, I never buy products and especially not cleansers for oily skin since they dry me out badly. Thus, I do not know if this product feels great on an oily skin.
Of course, if you can even if you have oily skin, I would suggest not being afraid of these more moisturizing cleansers especially in combination with a second cleanser for oily skin. I have recommended many of my friends who have oily skin to try this (using the double cleanse method) and surprisingly it helped them a lot, because the usual oily-skin products tend to absorb not only the oil but all skin's hydration. But of course it did not work for everyone. You need to find out what works best for your skin.

All in all, I will always repurchase this even if it is a bit pricey (holy grail alert). For a cheaper alternative there is a bodyshop chamomile balm, which I have not tested yet but I will very soon. I would recommned this to anyone, except for those with oily skin as I mentioned before.

Tinted Moisturizer -Clinique -Superdefence CC cream SPF 30

on 11/2/2017 6:12:00 AM

I like the finish this gives to my skin. It looks rather dewy but not too much. However, by the end of the day, I look more oily than I would like. The packaging is very practical and the price is fair, in my opinion. I do not like the application of this, though. It spreads weirdly and I cannot achieve an acceptable result with my fingers, I have to use a brush, which delays my morning routine a bit. It has started to sit weirdly on my cheeks too (setting into pores, not really holding very well) which is extra strange because cheeks are the only part of my face where my skin is in very good condition. I feel that this is not worth the work it requires to look good. Will not repurchase. Dreaming about discontinuing use but cringing at the waste of money and product.
EDIT: I think this is too heavy for my skin because I am getting more pimples. This is the only product in my routine that could be causing them. Will discontinue asap.
