Clinique Haul

Recently I had a bit of a Clinique Haul. I've never used Clinque before.  How you could get to my age and not have used it I really don't know! What enticed me to give it a try was that I had heard such brilliant reviews of Take the Day Off cleanser.  I had also heard great things about the little Take the Day Off pencil but apparently that is no longer available but I was told that we could just use a cotton bud dipped in the big tub and get the same effect for removing mistakes in make-up application.

When I browsed their website I was impressed by this statement.

'Today, all Clinique products are free from parabens, phthalates and fragrance. They are thoroughly vetted through a full suite of tests to help ensure your skin’s safety.

No parabens. No phthalates. No fragrance. Just happy skin'

I was given some samples from Boots.  First up, Aromatics in White perfume spray which is quite floral and the sample is great for a handbag.

A sample of Moisture Surge

and an SPF 15 moisturiser.  (I did alright with my samples from Boots didn't I?)

A tube of Foaming Sonic Facial soap, which apparently can be used without the sonic cleanser.

Now on to what I actually bought.  Take the Day Off tub of course,
Take The Day Offâ„¢ Cleansing Balm

Bottomlash Mascara.  From what I understand this is the only brand that does a specific bottomlash mascara.  I don't generally use mascara on my bottom lashes as I look like I have two spiders stuck to my face so I wanted to give this a go.  

I bought myself a light base eyeshadow (Canvas Light)  because in my pallets its the base shades that are exhausted before the darker shades.  I wanted a single to supplement my pallets.

Touch Base for Eyes

I was looking for a summer blusher and chose Ginger Pop.  

Cheek Popâ„¢

The Clinique advisor  helped me to match a lipstick and found Papaya Pop which looks pretty similar to the Ginger Pop blush and will blend well on my face.

  1. I'm excited to hear how you get on with these products. I've not heard of any of them apart from the moisture surge. I'm always drawn to it at the beauty counter as it's a texture I love, but I've never invested. The take the day off cleanser sounds intriguing, I hope you report back on it soon! Is it OK for eye make-up removal?
    Hugs and have a great week, x.

  2. Gosh I haven't used Clinique in years! I'm looking forward to hearing how things work out for you!

  3. I have used Clinique for years. Was always satisfied with the brand until my skin needed a bit more, also a menopause thing. But it's a very nice brand, I still use makeup of Clinique!

  4. I'm looking forward to your review. I haven't used Clinique in years. On a side note, are you getting my emails when I reply to your blog comments? I'm hoping I'm sending them to the right person.

    1. I think I am. Btw I just posted a comment on your blog. It disappeared. Maybe it's gone for you to moderate. I commented on your shopping post you just put up

  5. My mum uses Clinique a lot, she has very sensitive skin and it's one of the few products that works for her. I haven't used much Clinique really - used to like Aromatics Elixir. I find their sales people are a bit pushy.

  6. I used to be a frequent consumer of their product . Colours are good and Product is well made . You'll either be a fan or not . Enjoy.
