Eye Makeup Remover -CLINIQUE -Take The Day Off Eye Makeup Remover eye

foto

I got some of this because I am an idiot and didn’t realize the TTDO balm is meant to be rinsed off, not tissued off, and was unhappy with it. I was planning to use this just like a micellar water but need to use two cotton pads and more product than I bargained for to get all of my makeup off. So I sat down, got out my readers, and read the instructions printed directly on the containers of both TTDO formulas, and figured out where I was going wrong. So ok, the balm can be rinsed off (yey!) but this does too and I would find it a hastle to use two different products to just remove makeup.
I’m not complaining too much as this does remove all of my eye makeup quite well as intended, but I take a lippie off because you gotta rinse your skin after using this and thus makes it difficult to use as either a spot makeup remover to say, remove just my eye makeup if I was playing with looks and didn’t want to have to wash my entire face each time. I suppose if I wore waterproof mascara or smudgeproof eyeliner I might want to take the extra step and use this to make sure it is thoroughly removed, so I’m goong to keep it around for this. But otherwise I feel there are better options in Clinique’s makeup remover lineup for a whole face makeup remover, so I take a lippie off.


Moisturizers -CLINIQUE -Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief

I had been using this product for over a year. Thought I found my HG moisterizer. Loved the texture and how quickly it sank into my skin. Unfortunately, very suddenly, I developed an allergy to this beloved product. I put it on as usual, after washing my face with my normal cleanser, Cerave. Twenty minutes later, my face was tight, burning and beet red. I quickly rinsed my face and applied cold compresses.
My face calmed down after a few days. I used only water to rinse my face. I decided to try the Cerave again to gauge my skin’s response. I had no trouble with the Cerave. I’m not sure what happened with the Moisture Surge. I know it’s possible to develop sudden allergies to products. Sadly, I have given Moisture Surge up and now use Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisterizer.

Huge bottle for 15 bucks. last a while. This has been the best toner at keeping the oil at bay. Swipe my face with a soaked cotton ball and minimal oiliness 4 hours later. Really helps to minimize an oily t-zone. Less overall blemishes as well.

Mascara -CLINIQUE -High Impact Curling Mascara

I have to use tubing mascara. This is excellent. With tubing mascara, if you are expecting over the top lengthening, thickening, separating, you will be disappointed. If you have trouble with transferring and smudging, tubing mascara is the way to go. I love this!!! Does a great job and lifts (curls) the lashes better than many other tubing mascara that I have come across.

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

foto

I got this as a free GWP with a Clinique order. It’s an elegant alternative to vitamin c serums in dropper bottles, and since I used this only in the mornings, it lasted over two weeks. The vial is a bit tricky to operate, once or twice I did not dispense it exactly where I wanted them in my palm, but it could just be me as I feel I got more than “two drops” so perhaps I was not handling the vial properly.
The ingredient list is quite impressive, with peptides and other beneficials as well as some humectants, so it adds a touch of a hydration boost. The whole package makes incorporating a guaranteed fresh vitamin c product super easy to use and when following the instructions I don’t see how anyone could f*** this one up, the only risk being a poor reaction to vitamin c or to any ingredient in the base mix. There’s written instructions as well as pictures and a video on how to activate the vial and use the product.
I took apart my vial to see what devilry is going on inside... There are two compartments, one holding the base mix, and a second holding ascorbic acid powder, with a piece of foil separating the two. Inside the rubber stopper has a plastic spear that punctures the foil and shaking activates the serum, mixing the powder with the base. As vitamin c starts to disenigrate and oxidize the moment it is mixed with water, this method is so far the most ingenious method of getting the freshest vitamin c serum possible, but a rather expensive one.
However, if you’re willing to give up convenience to save money, you will look up how to make your own vitamin c serum. After all, this is just powdered ascorbic acid mixed with a base, and vitamin c hs been found to prevent, even reverse sun damage, so who wouldn’t want to look into every possible method of how to incorporate it into their skin care routine. I got a big jar of it for less than one vial of the Clinique stuff that will last me over a year.

Concealers -CLINIQUE -Airbrush Concealer

Had this a a week. Forgot to look at ingredients. BISMUTH ingredient is a PIMPLE WAITING TO ARRIVE!!!!!!!. Bismuth is a sharp mineral that will irritate and caused me a new pimple every day the past week. I returned this once I came to my senses and looked at the ingredients. I exchanged it for Cliniques Beyond Perfecting Super Concealer 24-hour wear. I think I'm going to like this. The "regular" Beyond Perfecting Concealer by Clinique also has BISMUTH in it so don't use that one either unless you want pimples. The Beyond perfecting Super Concealer 24 hour wear has NO BISMUTH so I should be good. It didnt feel dry in the store as I was fearful for long lasting. The rep said she really liked it so I will review in week or so.

I prefer the extended moisture surge intense. I don’t find this quite moisturizing enough although it does layer nicely under another moisturizer.

Moisturizers -CLINIQUE -Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate

I’ve been using this as a serum in the mornings under moisturizer and before sunscreen. It’s not super moisturizing on its own, but I find that it has helped my dehydrated skin normalize out (its undoing some damage I did to myself with a few of The Ordinary products that were not a good fit for my sensitive skin). I still think I prefer the moisture surge intense cream as I could use it on its own for better effect, but layered under a moisturizer this is pretty nice. It also does not irritate my skin at all.

Treatments (Face) -CLINIQUE -Acne Solutions Clearing Moisturizer Oil-Free

I am 31. I didn't have acne problem when I was a teen except few around my periods. Right after my 31st birthday my face started to break out soooooo bad
I couldn't figure out what happened. I didn't change my routine. I browsed all the acne treatment products and bought this clinique acne treatment kit. It didn't work for me. It made my skin very dry and flaky. I still applied it on the pimple just because I spent money. I wouldn't recommend this.

Foundations -CLINIQUE -CliniqueFIT Workout Makeup

This wasn't awful on me, just didn't do anything noticeable and any even subtle tint seemed to disappear after an hour.

Sadly, it seems like I fell for brilliant marketing campaigns and claims again.

The only reason I didn't give it a lower rating is because it could be a workable sunscreen with the SPF 40. Plus, the light shade is the palest I've seen in Clinique foundations in ages (but still slightly too dark). Deeper skin shades may have trouble finding a match.

I would not purchase this again because it provided NO coverage on me. Really, it didn't even dim my melasma. Plus, it has sodium chloride and a few other ingredients that my skin doesn't love.

I'm going to stick with my beloved Yves St. Laurent All Hours foundation- lovely, natural coverage and one of the few my skin will tolerate.

Test it out before you fall for the claims like me!

Liquid -CLINIQUE -Beyond Perfecting Foundation & Concealer

This review is For The Clinque BEYOND PERFECTING SUPER CONCEALER

This Clinque super concealer is good minor dark areas on your skin. This is not good if you have deep dark eye circles, or serious acne scars or marks.
It is very natural looking especially during the day. Which will benefit skin that needs minor coverage. Unfortunately this product is not suitable for me. I have deep dark eye circles and
acne scars. I layered the concealer several times to get coverage over my problem areas. After layering there was still not enough coverage, my dark areas were visible. I so terribly wanted a one stop shop product that was lightweight and conceal at the same time. I must confess I intended to use the concealer as a foundation. Although its a concealer the lightweight texture can replace a foundation, but once again on fairly good skin.

Love this stuff. As someone with pretty heavy acne scarring, I tend to use fuller coverage foundations...and we all know how tenacious that kind of foundation can be. I always double cleanse using this followed by Klavuu Pure Pearlsation Cleansing Foam for my water-based cleanser to remove all traces of makeup before applying any other skincare products. I have rebought and probably will continue to rebuy. Removes heavy makeup well. You may like to pair it with a washcloth to make sure it all gets off. Not a fan of the open tub but I can deal with the packaging.

Overall nice product covered most everything on face without feeling heavy or anything.. my skin didn’t react at all which is good since I have super sensitive skin.. price is right in my range! Only down side there is no pump to go with it.. I was matched to it Ivory and it’s a good match for my fair skin tone..


Edit Review: Its been super hot in CA and this makeup is not holding up at all to the heat and humidity.. making my face super oily.. not happy with it right now...

Mascara -CLINIQUE -Lash Power Mascara

on 7/19/2018 5:44:00 PM

I really like this mascara. It’s definitely a day time mascara that lengthens more than it volumizes but that’s fine for me because this mascara really does not smudge. It doesn’t flake either if I recurl my lashes after they’ve dried. And even after a whole 12 hour day, I don’t have smudges or flakes. I’m still getting used to taking it off because it comes off best with warm water, but then my other makeup gets all messy if I wash with water first. On the other hand, if I use makeup remover or Micellar water to take off my eye makeup first, then the mascara gets super difficult and messy. Hence the one star off.
