Powder -Merle Norman - Luxiva Ultra Powder Foundation
PinkCarnation 3/26/2013 4:43:00 PM
This is the best powder in the world. My color is Ultra Golden. I've used this since high school. You can use it as a stand-alone foundation if you wish. I have done that on days that I just want a light, sheer coverage. Typically I wear it over MN Lasting Foundation in Soft Bisque. This powder is the key to getting an air brushed look. My one complaint is in the packaging. MN forever and always had the long white pearlesque compact. It was classy, elegant, a stand-apart look. Recently they switched to a plain black small compact. It was awful. It broke and just didn't have that same suave look. MN recently and "temporarily" so I'm told went back to the classic white compact. I walked into a store one day and bought the last 3 they had in Ultra Golden. MN please keep the white compact and don't change again. As the old saying goes, "If it ain't broke don't fix it."
Treatments -Clinique - Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle and UV Damage Corrector

This product has smoothed the creppy skin on my cheek. It sinks right in and doesn't sit on top. A bottle lasts forever. I have tried many serums, but this is the one I will always use.
This was just so-so. I prefer Clinique Laserwear Serum for working on wrinkles to this.
I could not see any results with this product. I used three or four bottles so I gave it a good try. I think there are other more reasonable priced products out there that will do better.
I used several bottles of this and can't tell what it did if anything for me. I quit using Elysee because you had to layer and layer and layer the products. I just didn't see any special results.
Treatments (Eye) -Elysee - Eternal Youth Eye Serum

This did not do anything for my eyes. The product is a little too runny in my opinion. I could see where it might feel good if you kept it in the fridge and used in cold, but that really doesn't appeal to me.
Treatments (Eye) -Elysee - YouthSpan Micro-Firm Eye Repair Creme

I tried to like this, but it burns my eyes. Even still, I've used a couple of jars, but not anymore. Can't really tell a difference.
This is my go-to night cream for the winter. I know that when I put this on at night I will wake up with dewy, velvet skin. I love Clinique!
Treatments -Clinique - Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector

I really liket this. It has faded my sunspots some, not entirely, but some. I'm still on my first bottle, but will purchase again. It sinks in and does not sit on top of my skin.
Cleansers -Clinique - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm
PinkCarnation 12/28/2012 8:51:00 PM
I love this stuff. It melts in your hands and then glides over your face to remove all even the most stubborn eye makeup. No tugging, no tears, just smooth as silk.
This product will take off your makeup, but I much prefer the Take The Day Off Balm to do that. If you get this in your eyes yowwwweee.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel
PinkCarnation 12/28/2012 8:45:00 PM
This is the third step in my 3-step Clinque routine. The DDML was just a little too much for me, but the DDMG is perfect. It soaks right in and makes my skin feel so good. I cannot go without this and I use it faithfully morning and evening.
I am really a Clinique Type 3, but I use this some in winter. It works as well as the #3 Lotion in dry weather. My skin doesn't react to it in any negative way. It does tingle when you put it on, but that tells you it's working. Once the humidity gets high again I go back to Clarifying Lotion #3.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief
PinkCarnation 12/28/2012 8:39:00 PM
I use this as my daytime moisturizer winter and summer. It is not sticky or tacky. Leaves my skin feeling fresh and helps my makeup go on smoother.
I really like this foundation. I am a Clinique Type 3 and this is perfect for my combo/oily skin. It stays on all day even in high humidity. It goes on very smoothly and doesn't settle into any lines.
