I have often wandered around the Clinique section of Boots and thought about trying something, but up until very recently I hadn’t bitten the bullet and actually bought anything. However, I have now lost my Clinique virginity. I
I spoke to a lovely lady at the counter about my different skin needs and asked her to recommend some things for me to try.
First up, the Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector. This is designed to reduce the appearance of dark spots, age spots, and red marks left by spots. The assistant explained I should use this twice a day and in 12 weeks I could see up to a 58% reduction in the couple of marks I have left from old blemishes. Fingers crossed!
I wanted a make-up product which would give me a little coverage at work but would be much lighter than foundation. My tinted moisturiser just isn’t working for me at the moment because it’s too dark, so I asked about whether I should get a BB cream or CC cream. The assistant explained that Clinique has designed their CC cream for drier skin and their BB cream for slightly oilier or combination skin. On that basis, I opted for the Clinique Age Defense BB Cream. The assistant helped me choose a colour (shade 2), and so far it’s been totally spot on shade wise.
Finally, I got a couple of little samples to try: Clinique All About Eyes and Clinique Superprimer Universal Face Primer. I’ve used the eye cream a bit. It is supposed to reduce the appearance of eye puffs, darkness and fine lines around the eyes. I like it so far; it doesn’t irritate my eyes and is nice and soothing.
