Clinique fans, where are you? This article is your article! If you're curious about some new Clinique products, you'll enjoy this review as well! I went sort of nuts at Clinique recently, and bought an armful of goodies! Of course, I had to share these with you!
Featured in this haul:
1.) Clinique Liquid Mild Facial Soap
This is my new favorite cleanser! Wow was I surprised. This little cleanser is for dry combination skin, and not only left my skin clearer and healthier looking within a week, but also never irritated my eyes! I use some heavy duty waterproof cosmetics at times, but this took it all off without burning my eyes or irritating my skin. Very impressed! This is such a simple, impressive, effective cleanser. It has a very clean scent, that is light, due to it being fragrance free so its probably just the smell of the cleansing properties. It's clear in pigment. Very soft, non-drying, with a gentle lather than rinses off easily. Runs about $7.65 for a 1.0oz size, which is the size shown that I purchased. Loved it, 5/5 stars!
2.) Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Oil
I thought for certain that I would adore this cleanser above all of the rest, and although it did take off my normal makeup along with my waterproof liner easily I'm not sure I loved how it felt around my eyes. Due to it being an oil, I felt like it sort of seeped into my eyes no matter how hard I closed them while cleansing and sort of blurred my vision which was sort of unpleasant. As a cleanser, it worked fine, and took off my eye makeup especially as well. However, even though it worked for my waterproof eye makeup it didn't really work for my actual eyes. I would use it for my face, but the liquid facial mild soap did an overall better job without eye irritation. This product is fragrance free, though it does slightly smell like baby oil. The product feels like baby oil and is clear in tone. Leaves skin feeling soft. This product runs about $9.50 for a 1.7oz size, which is the size shown that I purchased. I probably wouldn't buy this again due to my eyes having an issue with it. 2/5
3.) Clinique Rinse Off Foaming Cleanser
This product is a little different from the other two cleansers due to it being a foam mousse. It was my least favorite of the other cleansers due to it totally burning the absolute crap out of my eyes! I didn't really expect this product to burn so badly, and I definitely wasn't trying to rub it into my eyes. Even with my eyes closed it still seemed to get into my eyes and burn them when I was trying to get rid of my eye makeup. This product is really great for the skin however and is loaded with botanicals. It did leave my skin feeling fresh but the burning sensation to my eyes was far too much. It's 100% fragrance free and I noticed no scent. This product is very foamy when applied with water, and is light pink in color. Clinique Rinse Off Foaming Cleansers runs about $9.89 per 1oz bottle, which is the one I purchased. Unfortunately, I give it a 1/5 because man did it burn my eyes!
4.) Clinique Clarifying Lotion 3
This product is a non-drying, liquid exfoliator/cleanser created for oily combination skin. I loved, loved, loved this product. This dermatologist developed formula sweeps away impurities and excess oil that causes breakouts. My skin has been visibly clearer and healthier looking since I've been using this product! It may burn sensitive areas slightly that are experiencing a breakout, and does slightly remind me of some sort of astringent, but the tingling is very subtle and honestly it let me know it was working. My skin felt and looked cleaner and more refined! Clinique Clarifying Lotion 3 is fragrance free, but does have a slight alcohol-like smell. Light pink in the bottle but goes on clear. A 6.7oz bottle of this product will run you about $14.00, which is the size I purchased. I will definitely buy this again! 5/5
5.) Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Charcoal Mask
This mask will unclog, depollute and really clean up your skin! The charcoal really warms the face pleasantly and really leaves the skin feeling fresh. It's mattifying properties absorb oil, impurities and environmental pollutants to truly detoxify skin. The charcoal powder draws out deep seeded debris to purify your pores while mineral clay soaks up excess oil. Oil free, and fragrance free with no underlying scent. I LOVED this mask! I really felt like my skin was so much more clear and my breakouts have been so much less intense and pretty nonexistent since I've used this. I really love how it detoxes the skin since I live in the city where air pollutants are everywhere. Clinique Pore Refining Solution Charcoal Mask will run you about 8.95 for a 1oz size which is the size I purchased. 5/5!
6.) Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel
This product is dermatologist tested and fragrance free. It easily absorbs into skin and does make skin feel more moisturized however I wasn't a huge fan due to the product leaving my skin feeling a little bit heavy, like it had product build up on top of it.This was a bit surprising to me since I picked the lightest formula this product is available in, which is the gel. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel does have skin strengthening properties within it, and is oil and fragrance free with no underlying scent. This product runs about 7.25 for a 1oz size which is what I purchased. I may purchase this again, but liked the next product I used much more. 3/5
7.) Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief
This product is so lush and truly leaves skin feeling refreshed and moisturized! My skin looks younger, cleaner, and healthier since I've used this! One of my new faves! This cream gel penetrates skin, is made with aloe and enhances natural hyaluronic acid - nature's perfect moisture magnet. 24 hour of satisfying, dewy, glowing, moisture from the inside out! Fragrance and Oil free with no underlying scent. Light pink in color but goes on clear. Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief is addictive and soothing, plus it protects your skin. LOVED it. This product runs about $9.00 for a .05 oz which is what I purchased. I will absolutely purchase this again, 5/5!
8.) Clinique Chubby Stick Lip Balm in Super Strawberry
Of course I had to pick up some cosmetics along with the Clinique skin care! This cute little chubby stick caught my eye It goes on super smooth, is very moisturizing, and is loaded with mango and shea butter! Leaves lips looking naturally flushed, with a subtle sheen. I loved this little product. It also comes in 16 other fun shades, including lavenders, nudes, peaches, reds and pinks! I will definitely try out the other fun shades in this chubby stick line from Clinique. They run about $17.00 a pop. 5/5!
9.) Clinique Makeup Mini Palette in 01 Like Mink Duo and 07 Sunset Glow
This little palette is perfect for on the go or for purse storage! It comes with three shades, two shadows in a light shimmering fawn and deeper brown ( 01 like mink duo ) and a peachy pink shimmering blush ( 07 sunset glow ). I was not so impressed with the pigmentation of the shadows, which didn't really show up so well on me. The blush however was very pretty. It's a nice way to test out shades in small quantities if you are not sure you will like them. This palette will run you about $7.50. Perfect for on the go, but the pigmentation let me down in the shadows, so I probably wouldn't buy the trio again. I'd just buy the blush. 3/5
Hope you enjoyed this haul!
