(Clinique Face Wash, Clarifying Toner and Moisturising Gel available here )
I recently had a bit of a skin meltdown, I was getting breakouts, clogged pores and my combination type skin was feeling more like oily type skin. If you follow me on Twitter you will know that I decided a skincare overhaul was needed, I wanted to properly try it out for a couple of weeks before I gave you guys a review. I used to use Simple products which for the most part I did enjoy using and was much more affordable whilst I was University. However now I am back at home and have a bit more spare cash I wanted to try something slightly more high end.
Clinique was the very first makeup brand I ever wore as my mum also uses their products so straight away I knew I wanted to go here for my new skincare. I was given a full skin consultation which reiterated that I do have combination skin and the 3-step skincare number 3 was suggested to me. The sales rep tried out these products on my skin and they instantly felt refreshing, soothing and moisturising without feeling heavy. I came away with step 1 the liquid facial soap, step 2 clarifying lotion and step 3 dramatically different moisturising gel, as well as sample size bottles of each which are perfect for travelling.
I have been doing my new skincare routine for two weeks now and I am completely sold on Clinique's 3-Step skincare and would definitely recommend it. There are four different levels to match four different skin types so you will be sure to get a skincare set that is perfectly suited to your personal skin type. Not only does my skin feel cleaner and more refreshed, my foundation sits better and lasts longer as my oily t-zone is more controlled. Yet my skin still has a lovely natural glowing look that I love!
