Clinique Skincare | Brand Spotlight

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

Clinique is one of those brands that I've always meant to check out, but never had. I had heard from some people, with more sensitive skin than mine, that it didn't work for them. However, I really wanted to check it out for myself... especially the Take The Day Off Cleansing Oil. And I am so glad I did!

CLINIQUE Take The Day Off Cleansing Oil. This cleansing oil is amazing. I haven't tried a ton of cleansing oils, so I can't compare it to anything else. It removes make-up so well, without having to tug at your eyes, and you only need a little bit. There isn't an overly strong scent. It's an oil, but it doesn't feel greasy at all.

CLINIQUE Liquid Facial Soap - mild. I've been using the Philosophy Purity face wash for years, I still do in the shower, but I never really felt the need to try something new. After using, and loving, the cleansing oil, I though I should try something else from the range. I really like this one. It doesn't dry me out and leaves my skin feeling smooth. My husband even likes it too (and getting him to wash his face is a struggle).

CLINIQUE Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+. This isn't one of my favorite moisturizers, but it is inexpensive compared to some of my favorites. It moisturizes without feeling thick or greasy. However, it pales in comparison to my favorite moisturizers. My skin is really dry and dehydrated, so unfortunately this just wasn't rich enough for my skin.
