I have been a life long fan of Clinique. My dad, not my mum bought me my first proper skincare moisturiser Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion when I was 14. He also bought me my first perfume Diorissimo! My dad has great taste. I’ve used Clinique foundation, powder, eyeliners, and shadows. My favourite products are Almost Lipstick and Super Glossy Mascara.
Over the years my skin has changed and I’m more prone to redness and irritation. I’m always milling around the Clinique counter in Boots which is how I found out about this range. I was talked into buying this by the sales lady at the Clinque counter. I don’t know why I did because I always prefer gel based cleansers to ‘gentle’ non-foaming ones. But you know what it’s like when you get swept up in a sales pitch and you are already laying down a few squids for something else, so you just nod and say yes I’ll take that too.
It says it’s an extra gentle cream gel cleanser that melts away makeup, impurities and helps calm redness. You are supposed to lightly massage onto your face and rinse with tepid water or tissue it off. Why I would want to tissue off any cleanser is beyond me?! It doesn’t feel like a gel at all. It feels like a normal everyday cold cream and smells like one too. It gets rid of foundation and blusher but forget eye makeup, mascara, or lipstick! As far as calming redness well I didn’t notice any difference. I think I could have gotten the same results with Boots Cold Cream. Shame really but never mind. It obviously works for some people, there are some reviews on their website from happy customers.
