Cleansers -Clinique -Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

foto

This is one of my HG cleansers. This balm takes off all my makeup, is gentle on my eyes - even when I scrub it into my lashes, and has been very calming to my red/sensitive skin. It also has a great consistency for face massages.

Oh my god...YES. I have been meaning to pick this up for a while now and could not be happier. I read the other reviews saying that it really does the job, but I was still skeptical. I have tried everything and although some things are good, there is always some trace of eyeliner left (I do love a good tight-liner! but it's brutal to take off)...but not with this! I am seriously amazed. I work this into my face for maybe 60 seconds? Rinse it off, and no trace of eye makeup is left, and my face is completely makeup free. I follow it up with my favourite winter cleanser by La Roche-Posay (Toleriane), and my face feels perfectly cleansed. I am seriously thrilled and this is my new makeup remover. Hats off to Clinique...they nailed it.


Toners -Clinique -Clarifying Lotion #2

My skin is very oily and prone to looking quite lifeless but after using this lotion my skin texture improved a great deal. My skin now looks a lot clearer and more radiant than before. The price is quite expensive yet the bottle is fairly large so its not that bad. Personally i think this is a great product!

Just a boring product trying the copy the looks of Chanel’s Micro Serum; which works much better than this one!

I only just bought this but i can already tell that i absolutely love it! The balm is silky smooth, doesn't have a weird scent to it and is so comfortably to use even on my oily skin. I use it every evening to remove my makeup and at the same time i give myself a little face massage. It's perfect for winter time where the skin can get dry/damaged by the harsh weather, i experience that it actually soothes my blemish prone skin. At little goes a long way and i actually think the price is ok compared to the amount of product you get (mine was filled all the way up to the lid! Not something i experience often with skincare products….) I prefer to do a double cleanse where i use a mild foam cleanser afterwards and it works perfectly like that. The first time i tried the balm i used a cotton pad with Bioderma afterwards to really test if there was any makeup left on the skin, and to my surprise the cotton pad was totally clean!

Overall: A abseloutlely lovely product that will continue to use throughout wintertime and that i most definitely will repurchase when it's empty.

Of all the tiny personal achievements of 2017, one is that I finished this dumb bottle of goo. This product is one of those interesting studies of the intersection of perception of price, packaging, desires and likes.

I first received this as a sample and it was in a little sample squeezey tube. I used a healthy squorch of it before my SPF and foundation in the am as the Clinique counter staff said it acts as a moisturizing primer. I liked it well enough and really felt that it made my skin look great so I bought a bottle.

I'm not sure what I thought I was buying, because I had seen ads for this product and should have known it was 39.50 and packaged in a pump bottle - we all have the internet, obviously. If this were $19.50, packaged in a squeeze tube and marketed as a light moisturizer rather than "hydrating! supercharged! concentrate!" I would be all in on a five lipstick rating. This packaging is ugly and cheap and clunky, the kind of thing that only looks good in an ad with gorgeous lighting. To its credit I was able to extract every last drop without resorting to bottle surgery, but it's so unnecessary.

It isn't sticky, it doesn't smell and it does seem to anchor my makeup a little bit, though it's not like it's one of those silicone super glue putty primers. It's really not bad, it's just not worth this price.

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

on 12/9/2017 11:15:00 AM

I purchased the Clinique 72 Hour Auto-Replenishing Moisture Surge Skin Hydrator to compare it to their original Moisture Surge Intense Thirst Relief Gel. Clinique has an entire line of Moisture Surge products such as a serum, mist, moisturizers, CC Creams, eye creams, and masks. The 72 Hour version peaked my interest mostly because I wondered what magic ingredient could they use to make a face moisturizer last through three days of makeup and face washing. I learned that there really wasn't anything that is new or state-of-the-art included other than adding a few well known, but not new, ingredients. For more details my comparison and review can be seen here:




Treatments (Eye) -Clinique -Pep-Start Eye Cream

This is a fine eye cream. It's not too heavy, smells nice, and provides a decent amount of moisture for the whole day. If you have oily skin, but find that concealer looks cakey under the eye, try this (or a similar eye cream). It solved my concealer issues.

My sole issue with this product is the packaging. For the last two weeks, I have had to scoop out product with a q-tip. The tube makes it impossible to get the last 20% of product out, so you're forced to pop off the top and scoop it out.

The stuff melts off my mascara/liner with ease. Use it without water, rub it over your face, massage it in. I like to let it sit on my face for a minute before adding the water. Once u add the water it becomes milky. Rinses off easily. This product does NOT sting my eyes, and works better than any other eye makeup remover. I do follow up with a regular foaming facial cleanser, because I am paranoid about breaking out, but... it's not necessary. The few times I did not do a second cleanse, there were no breakouts. I recommend getting a mini travel size to sample it out first. Once clinique has a gift with purchase, I will get the big size.
-travels well. No spillage, no cotton balls necessary. The mini size is perfect for vacations. I'm very happy with it. :)

I have been using this shade for awhile and love it! I am a no makeup kind of older gal with a heavy hand and this great for me! Hard to over do it and gives a natural nude sheen to cheeks! Great for me since I wake up at 4am to get ready for my day!

Eye Shadow -Clinique -Jonathan Adler Palette

I like this group of shadows. I bought over the summer (I have seen it cheaper now though) and it has a fun feel to the colors. 13 total.
I find the bright ones were still workable, and the neutral ones do work with the brighter ones. The shadow went on smooth, no fallout. The brushes are not to bad either.

The case is pretty and its sturdy. Would I buy it again? No, but that's only because there are so many shadows and so little time to try out!

Would not recommend this product to those w acne-prone skin/skin that is easily congested by moisturizing products.

This is a really lovely product, no fragrance, quite pricey but you need the smallest amount of product for your entire face so it would be worth the price tag to me in that way. It feels so luxurious, very silky, smooth, gentle, and moisturizing. It easily took off all of my makeup. A gripe I have w this product, however, is that it feels as though there is a film on my face after I rinse it off and even after using a proper cleanser afterwards. Even though this film/oily residue felt quite moisturizing on my skin and made my skin feel very soft and moisturized, it was also a little unpleasant because it also felt like there was a little bit of something left over on my skin (and I would always wash my face w my cleanser usually 2x after using this).

However as stated earlier, this sadly broke me out quite badly. I ended up giving it to my mum who really likes it.

A serviceable moisturizer that has no fragrance and didn't break me out. Unspectacular yet decent. If I found a great sale price I would buy this again, but it's a bit too pricey for regular use in my routine.


Mascara -Clinique -High Impact Lash Elevating Mascara

NEW FAVE MASCARA! Holy crap best mascara. Holds a curl like nothing else I've ever used (way better than roller lash). Kinda feels like a waterproof cause it's a little hard to remove but I don't mind that at all. If you have straight lashes and always have to curl the heck out of them to get any results, you'll love this stuff. I'm on my 2nd tube now zero regrets.

Great foundation. I have oily skin and usually cannot use a glow foundation. I would not say that this foundation is glow foundation, but definitely not matte. Most foundations break up on my skin the longer I wear it, but not this one. Also does not settle too much in fine lines.
