After being recommended to try Clinique by a friend, I finally decided to go into my nearby John Lewis and enquire about their products. I'd been recommended them as they are apparently a good brand for anyone who has sensitive, dry skin. Initially I was a bit dubious about trying them purely for the price tag associated with the brand but after trying so many different products and not being able to clear my skin up I decided to take the plunge.
You start with an initial consultation where the assistant asks you various questions about your skin and what concerns you most about your skin. From this they can then recommend products suited to your needs and skin type. After my consultation she recommended Clinique's three step skin care routine. Combining the use of facial soap, clarifying lotion and moisturiser. All three products where demonstrated on my hand as well as an eye cream for under my eyes, who knew you're not really supposed to be using the same cream for your face and eyes? I decided to buy all four products recommended to me (my bank balance shrieked at this point!) and to try the products and see what the outcome was. On the plus side they had a special offer on so that if you bought the three normal sized products you got the travel size versions free :) bonus right, just in time for my holiday to Spain in three weeks!
So the idea with Clinique is that you should be able to notice a difference in two weeks using all three products twice daily. Now it seems a lot of hassle for someone like me who normally just slaps on my makeup and then wipes it off to be doing this routine, but two weeks in and I'm still sticking to and I must say I'm very impressed. I noticed a difference within five days, my skin was brighter and so much more moisturised, for the first time in a long while I felt like I had normal skin!
If like me you suffer with dry, sensitive skin I can honestly recommend Clinique. Their products, although at the high end of the market, are perfect for anyone who has skin like this. You really won't regret buying these products... if you haven't already!
