Clinique is not a brand from which I have tried a ton of products. Sure, I’ve flirted with the brand throughout the years, mostly trying out acne treatments every once in a while, and I do love their cleansing balm. However, in the last couple of months, I’ve added a couple of real gems to my skincare routine. The more recent purchase, which is the Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief moisturizer, is a product I’ve been hearing about for a long time. Last month, a friend told me that she absolutely loved the stuff for her combo skin, and that I should try it, so I finally did, and it’s definitely a keeper. The texture is a gel cream that feels like it adheres to the skin well when patting it in, and it doesn’t make my skin feel sticky or oily afterwards. I’ve been using this in the morning, sometimes mixed with a sunscreen for those extra sunny days.
The Clinique Superdefense Age Defense Eye Cream SPF 20 has been really good this entire summer for that extra protection in the delicate eye area. I bought this at the beginning of the summer and still have a ton to use. The one thing I will say is that this did make my undereyes a bit dry at one point in July, so I’ve started layering/mixing this with a moisturizing eye cream, so that I can still use it and get the benefits of the SPF.
What are your Clinique favourites, and what should I try next?
