My top 5 Clinique skin care products

I know loads of people who swear by the Clinique stuff but to be honest I’ve had more misses than hits with the products I’ve bought over the years so I generally avoid the counter when I’m out shopping for beauty treats

That being said I’d never totally dismiss the awesome goodies from a brand just cos I’ve come across a load of duds! So these are my all time favourite Clinique skin care products…

Anti-blemish solutions cleansing mask

Leaves my skin feeling unbelievably clean and fresh. This is one of those traditional clay masks that you apply and leave to dry… When this has hardened I always find it really satisfying to smile and generally move my face around like a loon so that it cracks around my mouth and eyes before I wash it off :)

Moisture Surge Thirsty Skin Relief

One of the only moisturisers I’ve actually got close to finishing! (I’m terrible for just chucking stuff and moving onto new products) I will most definitely be picking up another jar of this.

I love how it seems to soak into the skin like a fine gel yet manages to hydrate as well as the rich, heavy night creams I use

Turnaround 15-minute facial

Great for brightening the skin and making pores less noticeable. The pot isn’t particularly big but I only use a small smear of this over my face so each jar lasts ages

All about eyes and all About eyes rich

These are the only eye creams I’ve used consistently for more than a year… I like the regular one for during the day cos it’s more of a gel than a cream and the rich version is great to use before sleepy sleeps

Anti-blemish solutions clear blemish gel

Works brilliantly when applied directly to spots and dries them out in no time. Though if this spreads out at all and touches the actual skin it can be disastrous as it leaves the whole area really dry so apply with caution!! :)

Thank you for sharing your picks, Joy. Clinique skincare is absolutely love. I also have my top picks from this brand. 5 skincare prod and 1 makeup made it to the cut :D

We both loved Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief! (it's actually my num 1).

I haven't used any of these before!
I have loads of samples and such from Clinique from spending over a certain amount and getting free gifts, but I haven't had any of these :) Well, actually, I had the All About Eyes once but my Auntie asked me for it.

I use the Clinique Anti-Blemish cleansing bar, foam, toner and moisturiser! :) x

I love All About Eyes. I've used Clinique skincare products since I was 13/14 and while I've had some duds I do like the brand. I really want to try the Total Turnaround products next. x

Thanks so much for this! I love my Clinique 3 step, the daily scrub, and a couple of other items but I haven't ventured out much with them. I'm not really sure why. But this gives me some great ideas for what to try - I'm particularly excited about the eye creams!

I just did a tag post. You should do it, too http://www.mamalaura.net/2011/02/tag-get-to-know-me.html

I do not love Clinique makeup at all, but most of their skin care range has been hits for me.

Quite eager to try the two anti blemish products you recommended, since I love their Antiblemish moisturiser.

The All About Eyes is so lovely! I got bored after finishing my original jar and moved on to Natio and Lancome, but do not love them as much, so will be moving back after using the other brands up.

The City sun block stick is really good as well and I absolutely adore their Take the Day Off - one of the most effective eye makeup removers I've ever tried!

Thanks for great post! I would love it if you could check out my blog!

Thanks for all your lovely comments! ♥

Herroyalbleakness I’m not surprised you rated moisture surge as your number 1. Honestly I love this stuff more every time I use it… Gonna get a couple of copies of Glamour this month cos they’re giving away little sample bottles of it. Woo!
