The foundation looks great but unfortunately, I broke out in hives so there is some irritating ingredient.


Treatments (Eye) -CLINIQUE -All About Eyes

I like this product, I am just not very impressed by the relation price/quality. It hydrates well the eye area, it does not interfere with make up and it also doesn't irritate my eyes.

However, in terms of puffiness and black circles I do not notice much difference when compared with cheaper products, like the pep-start eyes, also from Clinique.

It also ends faster (maybe because of the package). One package only lasted 3 months (applying everyday morning and most nights). I had other eyes creams also of 15 ml that last approximately 5 months.

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

So, I remember a reviewer on here describe the discontinued Moisture Surge formula as a ”glorified Vaseline”, and for that reason they didn’t like it. I actually loved it for precisely that reason! On my dry, dehydrated skin, the old Moisture Surge (especially the Intense version) worked as a good occlusive on top of my other hydrating products. I liked having the ”Vaseline effect” without using actual Vaseline. (I don’t know, I was weird about Vaseline, but I have since learned to like it.)

This is different. Still sticky, but seems lighter, absorbs faster, and therefore does nothing for me as an occlusive. As a regular moisturizer, it’s mediocre at best. Whenever dimethicone is near the top of an ingredient list, I’m a little put off. Silicones don’t bother me as such, I just prefer ingredients with real benefits up there.

However, I do like that it contains urea (can be helpful for dehydrated skin), and there are some amounts of aloe and green tea leaf extract. I read that this was promoted as ”bursting with hyaluronic acid” - but it’s way down the ingredient list, indicating that there’s not much HA in there.

It’s not BAD, but regardless of your skin type, you can get a way better moisturizers for half the price of this, so if a friend asked me for recommendations, this wouldn’t even enter my mind.

The jar packaging (and the product hence being exposed to air and maybe fingers) makes no sense. A gel like this could easily be put in a (more protective) tube.

Edit: After trial using this for a week, I’ve got weird bumps around my chin and jaw, which is the only area of my face where breakouts sometimes (rarely) happen. Did not add anything else new to my routine, so I’m sure this is the culprit. What a weird product.

Liquid -CLINIQUE -Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup Foundation

I have a very oily skin type that gets the occasional pimples here & there but in general my skin is fine & I don't need to wear a liquid foundation for any coverage therefore! But I did buy this particular liquid foundation from Clinique to try when they first launched it years ago Bc I knew it was a fresh brand new product that hasn't been sitting around! ! LOL I love my Clinique products & have been using them since I was a teenager! & I bought this liquid makeup not to use as a foundation but as a concealer for any breakout I might happen to get or on any redness on my face or any small imperfections on my face! & I use this in their second lightest shade the fresh ivory and it matches my skin tone exactly!& I like how lightweight this feels on my skin and it holds well on my extremely oily skin! So I like this only as a concealer but I could see how this would perform well as a moderate coverage foundation for acne & oily prone skin people! I like also how this stuff is medicated with salicyclic acid to treat your skin issues while giving you good coverage!


Moisturizers -CLINIQUE -Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion [REFORMULATED]

It is absolutely the worst so-called moisturizer I've ever used in my life. I've had similar experiences as other users, the first few days my skin looked youthful, moisturized, and plump. But on like day three I had pimples all over my face. The scent is truly strange. It smells like old Band-Aids in a bad way. It is hard to believe that this product is still on the market. I threw the stuff in the trash this evening and back to Neutrogena I go. Now I'm left to wonder how long is it going to take for my face to clear up.

Blush -CLINIQUE -Blushing Blush Powder Blush - Sunset Glow

Still not sure about this one got it after using nude pop and wanted something different I am light skinned toned with dark hair and green eyes and when I put on lightly it’s a sheer glow which is fine for me since I have a heavy hand and don’t like putting on blush.. as I am getting older I wear less makeup on my skins since it’s very sensitive and this does not bother me at all.. I would probably not buy again just for the fact that I prefer nude pop a lot better... this was a nice change though...

I have dry skin and use this product on a daily basis. It doesn't last the 72 hours like it says but it does leave a very hydrating texture on my skin. I use a round face brush to dip and apply it instead of scooping and using my hands. I find when I use that method the product lasts a lot longer, especially since I have to use it on a daily basis

Lotions/ Creams -CLINIQUE -Aloe Body Balm

on 12/10/2018 10:54:00 PM

My legs have been getting kinda dry lately Bc of the colder weather & I was thinking about what I had used in the past to remedy the situation & this great Clinique body lotion came to my mind Bc I had bought it numerous of times just to get their gwp ! LOL but anyway I had the most pleasant experience with this Clinique aloe body balm lotion & in the early days of Clinique it came in a large pump bottle which is very convenient but I think now it's smaller in a tube package! I had love this lotion for its fresh clean scent of camomile tea even though its fragrance free it has a very natural smell which I quite enjoyed using & the same clean fresh scent of camomile was also in their discontinued skin texture lotion which I also had loved & the same scent is in their mild liquid soap which I also love & I get nostalgic about these old discontinued moisturizers of Clinique's early days which made me the biggest Clinique fan!!

Wanted to love it because it's one of the only liquid liners that I don't get an allergic reaction from but this just didn't work for me. Easily smudges/runs off. Physician's Formula Eye Booster Eyeliner works much better and is cheaper as well.

Moisturizers -CLINIQUE -Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator

This product isn't the best, but I find myself repurchasing it as it does it's job, it looks pretty on my counter and it never breaks me out. It's good because it does exactly what it says it will, and very quickly hydrates your skin.

I like using this in between heavy moisturisers to give my skin space to breathe, yet not allowing it to get dry at all.

Moisturizers -CLINIQUE -Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator

I bought this product because my face was dry after 1-2 weeks use I got cystic acne and many blackheads which is unusual for me, once I stopped using the product it cleared up. I did appear to hydrate some areas but, then areas around my nose started getting drier and flaky. It also made my foundation patchy even after waiting 15 mins for it to dry.
An expensive product and I sill have lots left! So I now just use it as an under eye cream at night. The packaging is cute though, and I like the glass container.


Moisturizers -CLINIQUE -Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

This was one of the first true skincare products I used growing up. I always found the lotion a bit too greasy as I have combination skin. It's more oily than dry but it is definitely dry around my nose and chin. The gel is perfect for me I use this daily and multiple times when I'm not wearing makeup. I love this gel because it gives me the perfect amount of moisture, This helps balance my oily and dry patches. It also leaves my skin so soft and smooth. I have never broken out from this either. The price is great so I bought the jumbo size and I like that it's affordable and hygienic,

This also makes a nice primer base, it has so many functions than just a moisturizer. I'm so happy I came back to this product.

Lotions/ Creams -CLINIQUE -Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream

Product wise this is a very good cream. This is Clinique's best product. It's moisturizing and very light-weigh, yet it moisturizes incredibly well. This is even better than their lotion (especially in the winter). It also works as a great primer/base for powder makeup (not liquid foundation it will come off/slide). I use with with Mac Studio fix and it works great. I really hope they never stop making this because it's one of the best. I always buy creams and never lotions and I find that Clinique knows their stuff when it comes to basic moisturizing. This also leaves a semi-matte feel to the skin, but provides moisture. That is why I say you can use it with powder. If you are looking for a matte lotion that is extremely mattifying try Aveeno. All of their products are matte and keep your skin oil-free due to the colloidal oatmeal flour. I really don't like seeing negative reviews on this product bc this is seriously the best before makeup and days without. Clinique understands how to keep the barrier functioning at its best.

The price is kind of expensive for the little amount that you get. You don't need to use a lot but I wish there was more. I like to use a lot in the winter, at night. The packaging is cute and pretty and travel-friendly. I still want to a bigger version of this. I also don't appreciate that the cream is yellow. They can get rid of that. Other than that, the formula is perfect and genius. If you want something more affordable, check out Aveeno. Especially if you have sensitive skin. Aveeno works wonders.
