Product Review: Clinique Beauty Products

Hey yah! How are we? I am doing great, happy as a bunny, and I have another product review post to share. It is still all Clinique. I have been busy in the beauty department in my Local Debenhams store and I can’t wait to tell you all about the beauties I got. Debenhams currently has discount code 10% off 50GBP starting this Wednesday, so get in time to get what you need on the spectacular sale. I get discount codes off a website called Codesium. The website has loads of discount codes for Debenhams, and many other websites, so it is definitely worth checking out.

Back to the beauties I got, here they are –

Clinique Pop™ Matte Lip Colour + Primer in Graffiti Pop 2.3g

I have used this Clinique Pop Lipstick for weeks and it is the best Clinique Lipstick I have ever used!

Here is the brief product description –

Weightless yet pigment-saturated formula, Clinique Pop™ Matte Lip Colour and Primer hugs lips with 8 hours of creamy matte comfort. Built-in primer helps smooth lips for an easy, even glide every time.

 

 

Here are my thoughts on this Clinique Lipstick –

 

PROS

  1. I love the pink shade. It suits my skin tone.
  2. It is very long-lasting, and easy to apply, as it contains primer already!
  3. It can be bought in many beauty stores.
  4. I love the texture of the lipstick.

 

 

CONS

None. I love everything about this particular shade of lipstick. I will be buying it again.

 

Clinique Pep-Start Hydroblur Moisturiser

I have used this Clinique Moisturiser for some weeks and I like it. Here is a brief description –

This oil-free moisturiser instantly helps to blur imperfections while providing all-day hydration. Skin looks naturally perfected with a matte finish. Wear it alone, or under foundation. It’s so lightweight you can use it for touch-ups throughout the day. We call it your new favourite filter…the ideal way to give your skin the moisture it needs, and the forgiving ‘retouch’ that blurs the look of pores and fine dry lines.

 

 

Here are my thoughts –

 

PROS

  1. This moisturiser really preps my skin for makeup. My foundation just slides through with this on.
  2. It is fragrance free.
  3. It feels good on my skin. I love the texture, and the matte finish.
  4. It is a great multi-tasking product.
  5. It contains SPF.

 

CONS

None. I love this moisturiser, and I recommend it 100%. I will be using it again for sure.

 

Clinique Take the Day Off Makeup Remover

This is another new Clinique Beauty product I have been trying lately.

Here is a brief description –

Makeup remover for lids, lashes and lips. Unique, two-way formula that loosens the grip, then speeds the departure of the most persistent, eye makeups, mascara and lipsticks. Ophthalmologist tested. Suitable for contact lens wearers.

Works on all skin types.

 

 

Here are my thoughts –

 

PROS

  1. It does the job; it gets makeup off.
  2. It is compact, so easy to carry around.
  3. It is great for all skin tones, and gentle on the skin.

 

CONS

  1. I found it too oily for my skin.
  2. It does not wash off easily.

It is a handy makeup remover, but I won’t be buying this again.

 

Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream

I am starting to step up my skincare regime, so I am getting into eye creams and all. I have been using this Clinique Eye Cream for some weeks now, and I find it OK.

Here is the brief description –

A pep rush for eyes. Just 3 seconds to look wide awake, refreshed. Hydrates, brightens, perks you up. Its cool touch and de-puffing tip help keep eyes looking fresh. Smooths the way for makeup, too. Have it on hand. Ophthalmologist Tested.

 

 

Here are my thoughts –

 

PROS

  1. I love the bright packaging.
  2. I love the texture of the eye cream.
  3. It feels great on my skin.
  4. It is easily accessible in many beauty stores.
  5. A little goes a long way.

CONS

  1. I have not noticed any difference in my eye area.

I won’t be using this product again.

 

Clinique Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser

Now this is the best cleanser I have used in a long time. I am so in love with it.

Here is a brief description of this cleanser –

Effectively removes long-wearing makeup and sunscreen quickly and gently. Skin feels moist, clean, and fresh. Contains chamomile. Concentrated formula is long-lasting.

 

 

Here are my thoughts –

 

PROS

  1. It wipes up every trace of makeup, and leaves my skin very clean.
  2. Like all the other Clinique products, a little goes a long way. You only need a pea sized dot.
  3. It is fragrance free.
  4. It washes off easily.
  5. It is great for all skin types.

CONS

None.

I love this cleanser so much. I recommend it to everyone, and would be buying it again. It is so good.

 

Clinique High Impact Mascara

Mascaras are one of my favourite makeup products, as they have the power to transform the eyes. I have been playing around with this Clinique Mascara, and it ticks all the right boxes for me.

Here is the brief description –

High Impact Mascara is a multi-benefit mascara that adds maximum volume with definition and length. Specially developed brush and formula work together to dramatically thicken lashes while separating.

 

 

Here are my thoughts –

 

PROS

  1. It is great for sensitive eyes. I wear contact lens, and it does not irritate my eyes at all.
  2. It thickens and separates my lashes.
  3. Only a little bit is needed for the full effect.
  4. No smudges.
  5. It stays on all day, and easy to take off.

CONS

None.

I recommend this mascara and will be buying again.

 

All Clinique products came with this pretty little makeup bag. So handy for travels and extra makeup. I love it.

Product Review: Clinique Skincare Products

I love testing out new products and telling you all about it. I am always in pursuit of the next best beauty product, so expect many beauty reviews. I have used a few Clinique products in the past, and I found them good, so I decided to test out a few more, to see if they could become my regulars.

 

Clinique Deep Comfort Body Butter

This is my first time using a body butter. I have heard quite a lot of good things about body butters in general, so I decided to give this Clinique Deep Comfort Body Butter a try, and I am happy I did. I have been using it for weeks now, and I love it!

 

 

Here is the brief product description –

Luxurious, butter rich body cream penetrates dryness prone skin, delivering a new kind of softness to elbows, knees and heels. So silky, skin drinks it up instantly, stays soothed and comforted all day. This body butter softens rough, dry skin and is easily absorbed into skin. Works for all skin types.

Here are my thoughts –

PROS

  1. It is fragrance free.
  2. It is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
  3. It moisturises the skin perfectly, leaving feeling soft, silky and smooth.
  4. A little goes a long way.
  5. It is easily accessible at Boots, Debenhams, and many beauty stores.
  6. It does not leave the skin oily or greasy.

CONS

  1. It is a bit pricey at £35 for a 350ml jar.

I may be buying this Clinique Deep Comfort Body Butter again because I like it. The only issue for me is that I think it is a bit too expensive for what it is.

 

Clinique Smart Custom Repair Serum

I got this serum because I love trying face serums, and I am in need of a good, affordable face serum. I have tried a few great ones, but I found them too pricey and was not able to continue using them. And that is how I bumped into this Clinique Smart Custom Repair Serum.

 

 

I have been using this serum for weeks now and I have quite a lot to say about it, but first here is the product description –

Here is a custom serum smart enough to understand your skin’s past and change its appearance in the future.

– Addresses the appearance of uneven skin tone, lines and wrinkles, firming, or radiance
– For all ages, all ethnicities
– Five years of research
– Patented technology

Here are my thoughts –

PROS

  1. Small and compact to carry around if needed.
  2. It feels great on the skin. It leaves my skin feeling soft and clean.
  3. A little goes a long way.
  4. Great for all ages and skin tones.
  5. It is fragrance free.
  6. It is easily accessible in most beauty stores like John Lewis, Clinique Website, and many more.

 

CONS

  1. Too expensive at £49 for a 30ml bottle.
  2. I have not noticed any massive difference on my face, so I am not sure it is doing much if any.

Overall, I know I won’t be buying this serum again.

 

What do you think of both products? Have you used any of them before?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Product Review: 3D Crest Glamorous Whitestrips

I have been using the 3D Crest Glamorous Whitestrips for over 2 weeks now, and I can see a clear difference in the colour of my teeth. I have previously mentioned how I would love to have my teeth whitened again. I had a teeth whitening procedure done a few years ago, and it completely changed my smile for the better. So I was thinking of having a top-up procedure done, but not had the opportunity to do that, so I was very happy to have the opportunity to try out the 3D Crest Glamorous Whitestrips.

 

 

I must confess, I was a bit sceptical at first. I have used so many dental products with promises of a whiter smile only for them to perform way below expectation. In most cases, I noticed no difference at all, so I although I was happy to try out these whitening strips, I did have my hopes up.

The 3D Crest Glamorous Whitestrips formally known as Crest Advanced Vivid, is designed to whiten natural teeth 25X better than a leading teeth whitening toothpaste.

 

 

The pack also included a pack of Oral B Glide 3D White Whitening + Scope Flavour Floss.

 

 

Here are my thoughts –

 

PROS

  1. I love the compact packaging. It is so easy to pop the Whitestrips satchets and Floss pack in a bag.
  2. The Whitestrips are very easy to use. My pack came with 28 strips for 14 treatments(1 upper and 1 lower). I use the strips once a day for 30 minutes. They are easy to put on and take off.
  3. The Whitestrips work. I started to notice a difference after 4 treatments, and my teeth is now a lot whiter since I completed the 14 treatment.
  4. The Whitestrips have an advanced seal technology that provides a strong firm grip.
  5. The Whitestrips are very comfortable. I can go about my day as normal when I have them on. I can talk and even drink water with them on.
  6. The Oral B Glide 3D White Whitening + Scope Flavour Floss performs amazingly well. It gets rid of any food stuck in between the teeth and it leaves a fresh breath.

 

 

CONS

  1. I experienced a bit of teeth sensitivity while using the strips, which is perfectly normal when using a teeth whitening product. It disappeared after a few days.

 

 

I would recommend the 3D Crest Glamorous Whitestrips to anyone in need of a brighter smile. It is a very effective and convenient way of whitening your teeth. A trial will convince you!
