My love affair with Clinique is pretty young, but there is none a love more passionate and consuming. Lol. Theatrics aside, Clinique is probably my favorite brand out of all I've tried so far - because of it, I have come to realize that there is so much more to skincare and makeup than the drugstore products I've been using before.
Adik! Most of my Clinique stuff. Some I've already repurchased. Read my reviews here.
So why am I in love with the brand? Simple. Before Clinique, my skin looked like crap. Now, I use AT LEAST three Clinique products everyday: the Clinique Liquid Facial Soap (Oily Skin Formula), Derma White City Block Anti-Pollution SPF40, and the Moisture Surge. Barring any hormonal stuff and new products breaking me out, these three keep my skin glowing and smooth. I've tried other cheaper and more expensive products before, but I always go back to Clinique.
Wearing the Superbalanced Powder Makeup here
However, if I must pick only one Clinique product to use for the rest of my life, it will have to be the Moisture Surge! This gel moisturizer keeps my skin hydrated without the sticky feel. It also instantly smoothens my skin and gives it a glow - you really have to try it to believe it. Sorry, I know I sound like a broken record already, but I can go to my grave swearing this. :P
As for Clinique makeup, the brand makes excellent foundations. You have to try the Clinique Superbalanced Powder Makeup SPF15/PA+++ - it's my current favorite powder foundation. I also like the Perfectly Real Powder and the Superfit.
Again, it still depends on your skin type, so what works for me may not work for you. Clinique has several product lines for your major skin concerns, so if you use the wrong one, you won't get the results you want. That's why I recommend that you have a consultation at the counter, and always ask for samples!
The Project Vanity Clinique party: an afternoon of beauty and new friends
That said, I'm happy that I found my Clinique soul mates. Thanks to the brand, I have nice skin. Not super awesome model skin, ok, but real skin that I can be - I am - proud of.
