Clinique is ready to spring into action for the next season with Now in Bloom: Brights, a colourful collection inspired by Clinique’s latest products that give cheeks, lips and nail a burst of natural colour.
For a pop of colour on your cheeks, nothing could be prettier than the dainty new Cheek Pops from Clinique. The Chubby Sticks were a hit and I reckon these beauties will be next.
Already out in the States, we have four flattering colours to look forward to when they drop on 21st March – just in time for spring. The richly pigmented shades are called Ginger Pop, Peach Pop, Berry Pop and Plum Pop.
With the surface pressed into the shape of a gerbera daisy, these blushers give a natural flush of colour with no trace of powder or build-up on cheeks. This is right up my street as powder often looks dried out on me due to the lack of hydration on my cheeks. The detail on the petal markings alone is amazing as well. I am looking forward to wearing these blushers as we escape the winter blues.
Clinique’s Cheek Pops will be available on all Clinique counters from 21st March priced at £16.50. However, if you can’t bear to wait that long then they are exclusively on sale online at www.clinique.co.uk so check the site for more details. Blooming gorgeous, these are!
Woah! Longest product name ever, eh? And on a mission by the sounds of it. Like a superhero, Clinique’s latest release in skincare serves to protect.
Formulated to help hydrate and repair the skin, this new daily moisturiser is also full of antioxidants and daily sun protection to safeguard against the usual offenders of ageing.
It’s a precious pot that soothes and calms the skin. I only need a small amount to sweep across my face in the morning and it soaks right in. Bearing in mind I am more exposed to the outdoors with running, this moisturiser has made my face feel silky soft and supple and because so little is needed, this little jar will last a good while. You can’t go wrong with Clinique, can you really?
There are two skin-typed formulas of this moisturiser and both this and the eye cream (which is suitable for all skin types) will be available at Clinique counters nationwide from 27th December priced at £39 for 50ml and £30 for 15ml respectively. To buy online visit www.clinique.co.uk.
By now word has probably got around that Clinique has reformulated its iconic best-selling skin care product in the UK, the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+. That’s a heck of a mouthful. Kudos to the designer for fitting all those words onto the packaging.
What’s the difference then and why change something that millions adore and enjoy using? Well it’s been adjusted to deal with the daily issues we face. Think about it, there are a number of influences that affect our skin – the environment, climate change, travelling, lack of sleep (hell, yes), eating processed food and the stresses of daily life. All of these take a toll on the skin and so Clinique’s scientists and dermatologists have worked together to reformulate Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion while still preserving the qualities many value it for.
It’s taken six and half years, three formulating dermatologists, 53 researchers and 100 formula trials including over 1600 women of different ethnicities across five countries to get it just right. How it works is to provide barrier strength (using a blend of sunflower seed cake, barley extract and cucumber extract) and boost moisturising power (with Hyaluronic Acid, Glycerin and Urea). You can understand why Clinique is puffing its chest out in defiance.
The lotion plays a pivotal part in Clinique’s infamous 3-Step Skin Care System, which I’ve not indulged in because I prefer to use my own choice of skin care products in my daily routine. It’s also recommended for Very Dry to Dry Combination Skin.
I confess I’ve never tried the original formula and so I have no basis for comparison but to come into trialling this product blindly is not necessarily a bad thing. I’ve been using it twice a day for the past few weeks and find it has made my skin feel lusciously soft. Also my complexion appears smooth, clear and less tired looking.
I would say I am putting this lotion through its paces what with me waking up in the middle of the night for Ramadan, going without food and water for 18 hours a day and going to sleep late so evidently this lotion is helping my skin stay hydrated against those obstacles and that’s got to be a good thing.
Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+ comes in a 125ml bottle with pump and is priced at a very reasonable £29. It’s also available without the pump for £28 and a 50ml bottle/tube at £17. If that’s a price point that isn’t accessible to the masses for a carefully researched skincare product, I don’t know what is.
