Clinique is one of those brands you know you can trust when it comes to skincare products. It’s allergy tested and fragrance free products are right up my street when it comes to my face… I have extremely sensitive skin, and it never seems to let me down, or break me out. I have been a huge fan of the 3-step products for quite some years and thought I’d share my thoughts with you on my first ever post! There are three types of the 3-step routine. I use type 2, which is for dry combination skin. If you go to one of the Clinique counters, they can look at your skin to tell you what routine would suit your skin type best, which is perfect if you are new to the beauty scene or just looking for something new to try!
Step 1: liquid facial soap mild. This leaves my skin feeling fresh and extremely clean. It even gets off any excess makeup you may have left behind when removing your makeup. But my skin occasionally feels tight after use before I have used step 2, perhaps this is when my skin is slightly more dehydrated.
Step 2: clarifying lotion 2. This gives skin a light exfoliate and leaves the skin feeling soft and clear… Be warned; don’t get it near your eyes, my lord it burns!
Step 3: Dramatically different moisturising lotion. This is my least favourite product in the set, but that’s more to do with personal preference. I love a thick moisturiser, for me this is slightly too liquid, but it still does a good job of leaving the skin feeling healthy and soft.
