Trying On… Clinique


I am a big fan of the Clinique brand and the simplicity in their products. They are high quality and are great value for money in my opinion. Whenever I want a nourishing product for my skin, I always look at Clinique. They have a large range of skincare, lipcare, and makeup that is soft and gentle on the skin. I have a few favourites from their range; some that I’ve been repurchasing and some newer items. Here are my Clinique top picks…

1. Take The Day Off:

This cleanser is so good – one swipe and it takes off even the most stubborn eye makeup like liquid eyeliner and mascara. It’s so effective but without any kind of chemical scent or sting on the skin. It’s gently but heavy duty, which is ideal. After you’ve taken your makeup off, it leaves a subtle residue on the skin that feels soft and nourishing. I have a lot of cleansers that leave residue which then feels too oily on the skin, but this product doesn’t feel that way. Definitely recommended!


2. Moisture Surge:

The Moisture Surge I have is a mini sample, I believe you can get a larger pot that I will be repurchasing. This product is designed for use under or over makeup and can be used wherever and whenever your skin needs a little help. You can reach for this product as an on-the-go touch of moisture, or as a 5-minute replenishing mask – it’s so soft and makes my skin feel plumper, smoother and more hydrated.


3. Bottom Lash Mascara:

The Bottom Lash Mascara is a mini mascara with a tiny wand aimed to help define your lower lashes better than a normal sized wand can. Because it’s so small, it really gets in there and coats each individual lash that’s hard to reach. It’s long-lasting and doesn’t crumble off throughout the day, no panda eyes here. I’ve found that I reach for this quite often, and it really does a great job at catching each lash. However, some people might find this product a bit gimmicky and pointless to use. I would say that if you have a good mascara that can coat top and bottom lashes well and without crumbling, you probably won’t need this. But if you are looking for something to define your stubborn lower lashes with ease, this is a good product to have.


4. Repairwear Intense Lip Treatment:

This lip balm is designed to help repair the look of lines and combat dryness on the lips. It’s a soft gel-like formula that glides onto the lips and supports the skin’s natural collagen. Clinique states that it ‘replenishes natural moisture barrier so lips stay soft, hydrated’, and it does just that. It doesn’t offer much in terms of colour, but it leaves a shine on the lips which sinks in gradually. You can use this on its own, under other lip products, or on top of lipstick to add shine. Although it’s a little pricey, this lip balm is fragrance free and is perfect for anyone struggling with dry and chapped lips.


I hope you enjoyed my top picks from Clinique! Thanks for reading.

    These are definitely some of the best beauty products on the market. I’m obsessed with the makeup remover and the moisture surge nothing compares to them.
