Hello there everyone!
It’s been a while since I posted a skin care post so I wanted to share my favourites at the moment (coincidentally, they are all from Clinique) with you all since they are pretty amazing and keep my skin looking fresh and clean.
I’m having a bit of a Clinique fan moment since I’ve been in love with their Moisture Surge series for quite some time now and I’ve discovered some pretty amazing things that work well for my skin.
Besides always and every day taking my makeup off with a wipe or a cleansing oil or whatever I feel like using that day, I then go back to these 3 key products:
- Clinique Pep-Start 2-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser*
- Clinique Moisture Surge Intense*
- Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream*
After removing my makeup I always use my Clinique Sonic brush with the Exfoliating Cleanser in the shower to get rid off any excess or residuals I might have. I love the clean feeling it gives me and the fact that it also gently exfoliates my face. I use it twice a day, every time I wash my face.
Time-saving gel cleanser + exfoliator in one. Two-in-one formula combines cleansing with exfoliating power. Takes away dirt, dulling dead skin cells, excess oil, and impurities to give skin a smooth finish and a radiant glow. Preps skin for makeup. Gentle enough to use twice a day.
Afterwards, I use my Clinique Moisture Surge cream. I love it especially if I’m wearing makeup afterwards because it feels like a cream + primer altogether so I don’t have to use an extra product. The formula is really lightweight and it feels like a smoothing film over my face.
Let me tell you, the Moisture Surge products ALL feel am-ah-zing on my skin. They leave my skin feeling so soft and clean – I have to say, my skin never looked better since I started using the MS series on my face.
Rich, oil-free cream-gel plumps skin with 24-hour hydration. Lush formula instantly rehydrates thirsty skin. Keeps skin comfortably plumped, even 24 hours after you put it on. Daily use helps fortify skin’s moisture barrier to keep moisture in and environmental irritants out. A better barrier means happier skin.
Lastly, I always, always (!) use an eye cream and my favourite at the moment is the Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream which comes in a handy tube you can use to apply the cream directly to your eye area.
Lightweight, refreshing eye cream hydrates, brightens. Perks up your look. Delivers a rush of hydration and instant brightening. Its cool touch and de-puffing tip help tired, puffy eyes look wide-awake, refreshed. Over time, a peptide cocktail helps skin stay smooth, hold hydration, become more resilient. Oil-free formula works under and over makeup.
Of course, some times depending on my needs I change my routine up or add a mask (also, the Moisture Surge Overnight Mask is amazing!) of a richer eye cream if my skin feels extra dry. For most days however I use this combination and I have to admit that my skin never looked so good, plump and healthy.
Also, what might be important, I have oily but dehydrated skin so products with lots of water but oil free are very good for me. I also don’t react easily to products or trying out new products so that’s a good thing if you want to try something new and change up your routine.
What I also love about the Clinique products is that they are all allergy tested, fragrance free, oil-free, non-acnegenic (they don’t give you break-outs) and also they don’t have any parabens, phthalates, fragrance, alcohol or mineral oil.
What favourites do you have at the moment or what works amazingly well with your skin?
Do you have any go-to products that always give you the best looking skin?
Let me know, I’d love to know and try something new and I’m always on the lookout for new skin care faves!
