For the ones who follow the blog for a longer while, may know that I have worked for Douglas (a beauty store) for 3,5 years when I was younger. Now you can imagine that I really grew up with beauty. From make-up to perfume; I was spoiled with it. But not only the more ‘fun’ side was taught. I also grew up with skincare and the importance of it. One of the brands I that I have know forever, is Clinique. I am sure you know or have heard of it as well. During the years, Clinique came with a lot of new products. I have been trying some newer ones lately and want to share all my thoughts and knowledge with you today! So here comes a bunch of information on what to use for your skin type!
Cleansing your face two times a day is really everything your skincare should begin with. Because you can’t put your creams on a dirty face, right? For the younger skin – let’s say from your puberty until your mid twenties – the Pep-Start 2-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser is really one of our favorites. It’s exfoliates (which is means it is removing death skin cells), excess oil and gives your skin a smooth finish.
When it comes to eye cream, I have been probably the laziest person ever. Even tough the area around my eyes have been dry as long as I can remember, I somehow aways forgot about my eye cream. A while ago I really made a change and have put it into my skincare routine forever. Result? I cannot go without. An eye cream does so much more than you think it does. The area around your eyes is the driest one, so it needs a little extra help. The Pep-Start Eye Cream is just the perfect hydration for your eyes, which also brighten up for freshly looking eyes. Perfect to side the lack of sleep!
Skincare can be so confusing. If you have a dry skin you need moisture and something oily. If you have an oily skin you need something that dries out. Well, we are here to learn you the truth. Taking my own skin, which is dry, but is also sensitive for acne. I have to avoid anything oily but still need my moisture. The Pep-Start Hydroblur Moisturizer is something perfect for my type of skin. It’s an oil-free moisturizer, that hydrates the skin but has a Matt finish. Like Clinique says ‘it’s your new favorite filter’. The best thing about this little blue pot is that you can apply it throughout the day, because of it Matt look. Perfect for a skin that needs a little extra!
The Moisture Surge from Clinique is really everything for the very thirsty skin. The creamy gel plumps your skin and hydrates for 24 hours. It’s really like a glass of water for your skin and can work really well with the Supercharged Concentrate, also from Clinique. I have been using the last one in combination with the blue Pep-Start, which really was a perfect combination for me. However, already empty mine so it’s missing in the photos haha ;-). Anyway, especially now during the colder days, our skin tents to be dryer. Definitely give the Moisture Surge a try to see what it does.
I think yellow bottle is a product we all know from Clinique. For a very sensitive skin like I have, I would advice the other products, but if your skin can handle some extra work this product is really amazing. You may think that this Moisturizing lotion is very light for your skin – something I thought as well – but it really does a lot. At first it balance your moisture levels to give hydration throughout the day. Next to that, I find it exfoliating as well. It really helps to reduce oily zones and tallow production of your skin. This is also perfect for people who don’t like heavy creams. Since it is a lotion it absorbs really fast and won’t make your skin feel sticky.
I like this brand, I always pick it up when its on sale! Great share! <3 – http://www.domesticgeekgirl.com
