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.

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.

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.

I was at a friend’s place and she hat this moisturizer and I really liked it. It felt verry good on the skin and verry moisturizing. Did not clog pores but keep in mind I only used it 2 times so I dont know how it would be on a long term of time. Because sometimes my pores only clog after a few uses of a product. But I would say recommend it so far for all skin types by now.

I'm on my 2nd purchase of this amazing makeup remover. This is a makeup remover - not a full cleanser. I don't know why or how anyone could see this as a full on cleanser. Anyhow, I love this stuff. It does an excellent job of removing makeup, including liquid lipsticks and waterproof mascara. It doesn't leave any film on my eyes and rinses off very easily. I follow this with an actual cleanse using my Mia2 with great results. I prefer balms b/c they travel well and aren't messy like oils. There is no scent with this product. It is pricey but you get what you pay for with this stuff.

This is more of a precleanse then a cleanser. It will help melt makeup off your face. A few issues is that the balm is hard to grab and I end up with a ton of product on my hands. There should be a pump to make it more sanitary too. Didn't last very long at all. Not worth the dough.

This is very good coverage but it dried my skin out and it is now flaking up. I’ve never had a makeup dry my skin out like this.
