Jenna’s Blog | Part Two

Hello again, yep it’s me, Taylas mum.

I’m writing another set of reviews today, this time about some Clinique products I have.  I put the brands I have together just for ease.  I think my next instalment is a mixture of products and brands, hopefully it won’t be too messy 😉

I have been using the Clinique 3 step system for a few years and have got on with it brilliantly.  It’s only my curiousness and the price of Clinique that has made me venture into trying other products.  I got my Clinique bits and bobs when we went on holiday to Florida so with the exchange rate I paid quite a bit less than the prices I’ve listed.  The prices listed are from the Boots website and these are MY OPINIONS.

Liquid facial soap.  Combination oily to oily skin, 200ml, allergy tested.  Step 1. £16
Non scented.
Great soap, has a gentle lather and doesn’t leave my face feeling dry and tight.
My fall back facial soap, great stuff.

Clarifying lotion 3.  Combination oily, 487ml, allergy tested.  Step 2. £26 (for 400ml)
Says fragrance free but you can smell alcohol in it. Can also feel it tingle when swept over your skin, which I like.
I’ve not found it very good as an exfoliator like described on the bottle, good as a toner though.
I have the bottle with the pump in the top because I bought it in America, I don’t know if you can get the pump in the UK.

Dramatically different moisturising gel. Combination oily to oily skin,125ml, allergy tested. Step 3. £30.
Says fragrance free but I think it has a very light clean smell.
A little goes a long way, so you can use sparingly. Absorbs quickly and easily.  Doesn’t leave skin matte but not shiny either.
My fall back moisturiser, I have a new bottle in the cupboard ready to go.

Take the day off make up remover for lids, lashes and lips.  50ml, allergy tested. £17 (for 125ml)
This is Such a small bottle as i got this in a sample pack with another purchase.
Non scented.
This is the best waterproof eye makeup remover I have ever used!!! I love it so have been using it sparingly, making it last rather than buying a new bottle.  I’m so tight lol.  Would recommend it to anyone.  Never tried it on my lips though as I never have lips left on by the end of the day.

Repairwear intensive eye cream.  15ml, allergy tested, ophthalmologist tested.

(I don’t think they make this anymore so I can’t find a price)

A nice eye cream that isn’t at all greasy and is easily absorbed.  Feels lovely but not seen any difference on my lines and wrinkles.

Acne solutions cleansing foam.  125ml, salicylic acid acne medication. Allergy tested. £17.
Says fragrance free but has a slight medicated and sweet smell.
This product is also part of the 3 step system buy I only have this step. Cleanses your skin really well but be very careful near your eyes.  At the moment it’s too much for my skin so will probably end up giving it away.

Self sun body daily moisturiser.  Light/medium, 75ml, allergy tested. £19 (for 125 ml).
Says fragrance free but I think it has a rather strong scent, a funky buttery type smell.  It’s pretty much the same deal as the dove self tanning moisturiser, put a bit on each day and build it up each day until you get the desired colour.  Works great and created a beautiful light tan (great for us pale people). Doesn’t last that long but non of them do, shame it is stinky! I got this free in my sample pack with another purchase.

There you go, another set of reviews from my perspective.  Remember I am in my early 40’s so if you’re a young whippersnapper it will probably not apply to you. Anyway I hope someone finds this helpful 🙂

Until next time…..
