Cleansers -CLINIQUE -Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

foto

This unassuming balm does an impressive job removing even stubborn waterproof make up. It is gentle and effectively dissolves make up. Any remaining specks or make up can then be easily wiped off with a warm, wet wash cloth. My fave is left perfectly clean.

The cons - it’s a little firmer than I would like. Although it does melt quickly, for the first few seconds it’s chunky enough that a clump could fall off your face and in the drain. It’s also expensive considering how much you need to use to get the job done (about a teaspoon and a half). Lastly, you wouldn’t expect this with a greasy cleansing balm but for me it’s actually a little drying.

BB Cream -CLINIQUE -Moisture Surge CC Cream SPF 30

Definitely over rated in my opinion. It’s so thick it does not blend at all. I found it has a very heavy, greasy, feeling. It didn’t break me out, but I didn’t use it for very long. It is nice that it has SPH included, but there are so many CC and BB creams that are way better. I found that it did not provide any moisture whatsoever. I do not plan on buying this again.


Treatments (Face) -CLINIQUE -Smart Custom repair serum

This is an okay serum - not overly wow, but still provides a little "something" that I am not left feeling like I am doing something for the sake of it. I only apply it at night, along with the matching face cream. I think it does just enough to leave my skin feeling, and looking, soft and smooth. I can't say it does much for skin tone, but I think it does help in minimizing pores (just a little). Plus, I don't feel like it is overly scented or irritating (at least to me it doesn't). However, and perhaps it is because I only apply it at night, I don't feel like it is giving me amazing results. (I would say that it has lasted me all summer, and I still have some left over, so I think I have given it relatively good amount of time to do its work.) Nonetheless, I don't plan on repurchasing this. Plus, it is relatively expensive for just okay results.

Il fait littéralement fondre votre maquillage, il enlève tout, peu importe qu'il soit 24h ou imperméable.
C'est si doux, nettoyant, hydratant et tout simplement fantastique, mais un peu va un long chemin, il dure pour toujours.
Une autre bonne chose est l'emballage, pas de déversements et la perfection pour voyager.

Je viens de terminer la version mini de ce qui vient avec la crème hydratante et crème contour des yeux ensemble. AIMER. Il rend ma peau si douce et lisse! La crème hydratante est pas si spécial tho, à moins associé à ce produit. ma peau est naturellement hydratée et hydratée. Avant, ma peau se sentirait sec jusqu'à ce que j'ai appliqué une crème hydratante. mais en utilisant ce dans le cadre de mon soin rend ma peau hydratée se sentir à tout moment. Je veux acheter en taille réelle. vraiment tres magnifique et je le recommande a toute les filles qui ont une peau mixte et grasse..

C'est un excellent masque hydratant. Je ne peux pas dire que j'ai vu beaucoup s'éclaircir après l'avoir utilisé, mais c'était génial quand ma peau était sèche et qu'il me fallait juste un peu d'apaisement. Je viens de terminer un tube et je rachèterai probablement l'hiver prochain lorsqu'il retournera à l'automne / hiver


Treatments (Eye) -CLINIQUE -All About Eyes

It's very rare for me to really dislike a product, especially something as innocuous as an eye cream! However this one, despite being a GWP is now sat in my closet keeping all the other samples and GWP's company. I used it about 4 or 5 times. Each time I disliked the texture immediately, it just sat there leaving a shiny film - which would be understandable if that shine was due to SPF but no it isn't. This is more like an oil slick that neither moisturizes nor seems to have any other benefits. Perhaps the benefits are long term but I can't get past the texture to use it for a longer period of time. Not come across an eye cream I've given up using before. This is a first!

J'adore ça. Je l'ai utilisé en petites quantités comme une couche de fond et en grandes quantités comme une crème de nuit pour la meilleure partie de 5 ans comme je l'ai vu ma peau passer de très grasse à sec chronique . Ne me éclate, n'a pas d'odeur, pas brillant blanc ou pigment. J'utilise la bouteille squeezy parce que je trouve la pompe est bouché. Ma seule plainte. je vous le recommande

Freaking incroyable. Ce produit a sauvé mon visage, j'ai souvent des éruptions cutanées. Lorsque j'ai commencé à utiliser ceci pour ma routine cutanée, je ne m'étais pas évaporé, peut-être une fois dans une lune bleue, mais pas comme avant. Après avoir utilisé cela, ma peau était tellement propre et étonnante. Je l'ai utilisé tous les jours pour laver mon maquillage et j'adore le recommander. Je l'ai achetée chez Marshall pour vraiment bon marché (je ne me souviens plus combien) et maintenant que ma première bouteille est partie, je vais en acheter une au prix fort parce que ça en vaut la peine.


Liquid -CLINIQUE -Beyond Perfecting Foundation & Concealer

I have been using this for almost a week now on my sensitive/acne prone/dry skin and I LOVE IT so far. This has not caused any breakouts. It has an awesome wand to apply to face and its easy to blend with a makeup sponge or brush. A little goes a long way and it does have a moisturizing effect on the skin but not too much. It looks like a healthy glow on the skin. I accidentally slept with this one one night and I didn't wake up with any break outs which is crazy to me! Also this is a great price point compared to other foundations. The only con is this did show a few wrinkles on my face (not sure how that happened) I highly recommend this foundation!


Foundations -CLINIQUE -Superbalanced Silk Makeup Broad Spectrum 15

So dissapointed of this foundation. Even though i like clinique's makeup products, i am not very fond of their foundations. I was recommented to this foundation as a solution to my oily skin. Turns out very greasy from the very beginning of applying it. I usually wear foundation over non-oily sunscreen. I thought this was the problem, because it'd become greasy, accentuating pores and overall, not settling. Tried it with a couple of moisturizers and a couple of primers. None of these worked. Such a waste of money...


Fragrances -CLINIQUE -Happy

What a refreshing treat! I don't know if Happy changed, or I did. I used to HATE this fragrance, and even gave it a 1-lippie review on MUA a few years back as I found it to be sour, high-pitched, and annoying. But I got yet another of those 0.14 oz sample sprays in my recent Clinique bonus and gave it another go. I LOVE HAPPY NOW!

Yes, it is very sharp and soapy when you first apply. But it dries down quickly to a delightfully fresh citrus-floral. I detect primarily tangerine/satsuma + fresh-cut jasmine & gardenia. There is not a hint of heaviness or sweetness to this. It came out 3 years after Estee Lauder Pleasures and reflects the same hyperclean spirit. Just makes you feel uplifted and smelling like you showered with a wonderful boutique soap. My little sample bottle has come in very handy when I've had to work a double shift at the hospital without time for a shower.

Maybe the difference is that Happy is officially 20 years old now and qualifies as a true classic, not just a '90s trend that played out. As for it not being "sexy," well, I love those sexy thick Oriental and woodsy fragrances but my spouse does not. He thinks I'm sexiest when I smell clean and fresh! So sexy is in the nose of the beholder I guess.

I thought it would cover imperfections nicely but found it too thick and mask like.
I eventually threw it away. An expensive mistake


Mascara -CLINIQUE -Workout 24-Hour Mascara

I LOVE this mascara so much. It's the best one I've tried in ages and I'm grateful to find it.
Pros
-slim brush that's easy to use
-very buildable volume and length
-non-irritating
-holds a curl
- not a single smudge or flake, even 24 hours after I put it on
-no lash loss

Cons
-a bit too wet at first

It isn't really a tubing mascara, but does come off mostly with water. It comes off easily with a wet makeup pad. It works beautifully with the Lancome XL primer.

My new go-to!

I hate the way this feels, the way it peels, and the way it doesn't make me feel moisturized afterwards. What a shame they keep putting it with all the GWP's!
