Clinique old favourites (and a new flirt)

Sometimes I like to look at my beauty stash by brand to see what is my curated selection from it. Clinique is a brand I never noticed I had a strong relationship with, until I realised that some of their products are actually re-re-re-re-purchases. In this day and age of trends and companies coming out with new launches that they shove down your throat, this means A LOT (quite more than stuff I buy once and move on to the next new shiny equivalent from any other brand).

Here’s my curated selection of besties from Clinique (and a new fling I’m into at the moment):

Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm
Fresh Pressed System
Beyond Perfecting Foundation
Lash Power Mascara
Beyond Perfecting Concealer

 

Clinique Fresh Pressed

Summer experiences and finds: This @cliniqueportugal Fresh Pressed system was on my radar because #CarolineHironsmademedoit and I decided 10 days away was the best moment to test it out. The cleanser is a powder in sachets (less liquids, yay!), and each sachet has enough for morning and evening second cleanse. It foams up beautifully but does not dry out the skin. You only need two drops of the serum mixed in with your hydrating serum, oil or moisturiser, so, again, very portable, the formula is not compromised because it’s sealed in the component, and lasts more than the 7 days. . My skin managed to be quite balanced and not get more hyperpigmentation despite being exposed to the mountain air and sun. It’s a beautiful vacation treat (pick it up at the airport!) or every once in a while intensive treatment (it can also be a staple for you, if you can afford the price tag). Mild enough to use even if your vacations are in the sun. . Vitamin C is the master anti-oxidant, prevents and diminishes discolouration and hyperpigmentation, and boosts collagen on your skin. . #skincare #vitaminc #cliniquefreshpressed #almost40 #combinationskin #acneproneskin #antioxidants #travelskincare #traveltoiletries #beautyover35 #skincareaddict
