Hello everyone welcome back to another blog post, I hope you’re all doing wonderful! I’m going to be telling you guys all about my new skin care routine which I’ve been using for about a week now so I feel it’s a good time for my opinion. I’ve never really had an issue with my skin even going through my teen years (even though I’m only 18) I did however have a huge break out when I was about 13 or 14 and I think everyone goes through the stages of acne, it’s normal and everyone had or has acne. I recently noticed that my skin felt really bumpy in certain places and I wasn’t sure what was going on, so me being that person who Google’s everything (bad thing to do) and I searched online for something that I could test out which would help me. I’ve always used the Simple Hydrating Light Moisturiser, as my skin is super sensitive and this was the only one I found that didn’t irritate me. Along side this I also used the Simple Soothing Toner and up until recently they’ve done me good I’m not gonna deny that, but about 6 or 7 weeks ago I realised I was using these products and my skin seemed to be getting worse. So I decided that I was going to read up on different products as I feel you need to have something that can help with all of your skin care needs to get that healthy glow back. I done quizzes and everything and then I actually came across a website which for some reason I completely forgot about and that is clinique. I went onto their website and their products are a little pricey so I was a little bit inbetween thoughts whether or not to purchase something, but then I found a little quiz where you just enter a few details about yourself and it comes up with products that is recommended for your skin type, and the best thing about this is there is 4 different skin type collections! It’s a simple and quick quiz that takes no more than 5 minutes and if you’re just curious you don’t even have to enter your email or sign up to get the results which is hassle free, the skin types are :
- Very Dry To Dry
- Dry Combination
- Combination Oily
The skin type I got was dry combination and I agreed with that, I’ve always suffered from really bad dry skin especially on my nose. When I was scrolling through the recommended products that came up I saw this little kit which was only £10 and not gonna lie I was quite shocked that the intro kit was so cheap, I know clinique is a very luxurious brand and I had heard of so many good reviews of their skin care so I thought why not?
As soon as my kit arrived I was so excited to try it out, also as well as it only costing £10 I also got a free sample of my choice at the checkout and FREE DELIVERY WOOOOO it keeps getting better and better!! 😂 When i opened the box I was surprised to see that the 3 products were a decent size as well. In the kit you get :
They advise you to use these products 2 times a day and takes 3 minutes, so use these morning and night but if you forget or only use once a day don’t worry it’s not the end of the world!
Step 1 –
So first we are staring with the liquid facial soap, to me this hasn’t got any scent to it and it’s really refreshing. I dampen my face before and then I put a small amount of this on my hands and then gentley rub all around my face, then I rinse off the product. This is my favourtie from the trio so far as I feel it’s the most refreshing product and especially in the morning when I look like something from the walking dead its a god send!
STEP 2 –
I’m still not 100% sure on this one just yet, I do feel like it makes my skin feel more nourished after using the soap before hand but the smell on this thing to me is far to chemically, you know the hand sanitizer that’s in hospitals? That’s what this stuff smells like to me not gonna lie. But besides that it feels very cooling and refreshing and I’m still going to keep using it and hopefully I can get used to the smell, i only place a small amount of this onto a cotton pad and wipe all over the face.
Step 3 –
I have to admit this was the step I was most excited for, I’ve heard so many good things about the moisturiser from clinique so I was looking forward to finally trying this for myself. With this a little bit goes a long way which makes me think this little tube will last a while! *bonus* It’s so moisturizing and again doesn’t have a scent to it just like the soap. When I first started to rub it in I was a little bit shocked because it seemed to be really thick and didn’t look like it was rubbing in so I had one of those “oh shit” moments but then I realised it was sinking into the skin and I was very relieved haha! I’ve also reason to believe you can buy this product in gel form which sounds interesting.
Overall I think these products have been improving my skin, the redness has gone down and I’ve noticed nearly all the little bumps have calmed down and more or less gone. For £10 it’s an absolute bargain and I’m so glad to have come across it, If you’re looking for new skin care products or just fancy a change head on over to their website here ➡️ https://m.clinique.co.uk/blue_ocean/intro_choose.tmpl and take the skin diagnosis quiz see what products are recommended for you and then maybe treat yourself to a little kit! I’m super impressed with the outcome so far and such little product goes a very long way, its definitely worth checking out.
