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.ย  I put the brands I have together just for ease.ย  I think my next instalment is a mixture of products and brands, hopefully it won’t be too messy ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have been using the Clinique 3 step system for a few years and have got on with it brilliantly.ย  It’s only my curiousness and the price of Clinique that has made me venture into trying other products.ย  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.ย  The prices listed are from the Boots website and these are MY OPINIONS.

Liquid facial soap.ย  Combination oily to oily skin, 200ml, allergy tested.ย  Step 1. ยฃ16
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.ย  Combination oily, 487ml, allergy tested.ย  Step 2. ยฃ26 (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. ยฃ30.
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.ย  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.ย  50ml, allergy tested. ยฃ17 (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.ย  I’m so tight lol.ย  Would recommend it to anyone.ย  Never tried it on my lips though as I never have lips left on by the end of the day.

Repairwear intensive eye cream.ย  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.ย  Feels lovely but not seen any difference on my lines and wrinkles.

Acne solutions cleansing foam.ย  125ml, salicylic acid acne medication. Allergy tested. ยฃ17.
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.ย  At the moment it’s too much for my skin so will probably end up giving it away.

Self sun body daily moisturiser.ย  Light/medium, 75ml, allergy tested. ยฃ19 (for 125 ml).
Says fragrance free but I think it has a rather strong scent, a funky buttery type smell.ย  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.ย  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.ย  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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Until next time…..

Introducing…

Hey there,

Today I have a little treat. I am introducing a new guest blogger who will share thoughts, hints and tips on beauty products designed for a completely different skin type to mine!

I speak about her all the time and she is genuinely my absolute hero! She is my Mum!!

Here she prepared a little intro but her first post will be tomorrow!

Enjoy xo

Hey
Let me introduce myself, I’m Jenna and I’m Taylas mum.ย  She has asked me to write about my experience with beauty products from a perspective of someone who has very difference skin type to hers.

I have very oily skin, large pores and being a ‘lady of a certain age’ some lines and wrinkles.ย  I am on what seems a never ending quest to find something to solve these problems, without injections or the use of a surgeon and as cheaply as possible๐Ÿ˜‰. I absolutely love me a bargain!!!

Like Tayla I LOVE LOVE LOVE make up, nail art and hair styling.ย  I have quite a collection of nail products from polish to stamps and am lucky enough to have 3 daughters with beautiful nails who let me play and decorate their talons pretty much how I like.ย  On occasion they will also let me do their hair and make up, we’ve had a few afternoons copying some YouTube eye make up tutorials and having a giggle! Good times ๐Ÿ˜Š

So there you go, that’s me.ย  Occasionally I will contribute to Taylas blog and I hope I don’t bore you too much with my limited experiences and knowledge.

Until then….
