I cannot sing my praises high enough for Clinique products. I’m relatively new to the world of Clinique as I only own a 3-Step System pack and Clinique Stay Matte foundation, (Which you can read about here) but I was lucky enough to be 1 of 5 competition winners and was gifted this amazing array of Anti-Blemish Solutions skin care products!
*Clinique Anti-Blemish Cleansing Foam, £15.50 125ml
As I stated before, I have used the Anti-Blemish Solutions 3-Step System so I am familiar with the range I was kindly sent. This product is to be used after you have removed your make-up. The cleansing foam is dispensed via a nifty little pump and 1 to 2 pumps is enough to be worked into wet skin into a lather. The foam removes excess dirt and oil, unclogs pores and soothes the redness of the skin.
I have used this product for a while and can categorically state it works wonders. I’ve always suffered with blotchy red skin, but this has soothed my skin down to a neutral tone. So pleased with this little beauty!
*Clinique Anti-Blemish Clarifying Lotion, £17.00 200ml
Once your face is towel dried, shake the bottle of lotion and apply to a cotton wool ball. Sweep out and away from the face lightly, avoiding the eye area. The gentle formula of the lotion exfoliates the skin and reduces excess oil that can lead to breakouts.
The lotion smells fairly strong and gives the skin a slightly tingly sensation. The word ‘lotion’ is a little deceiving I think as when I personally think of lotion, I think of a creamy smooth formula. But this is a light liquid form and feels amazing on the skin. I personally have sensitive dry skin and can clarify it’s the perfect strength for my skin. Another reason that I have for loving the lotion so much is how much make-up it removes – shocking how much wipes leave behind!
*Clinique Anti-Blemish All-Over Clearing Treatment, £18.50 50ml
After applying the lotion, simple apply a small amount of the lightweight cream on to the skin to treat existing blemishes and to control oil. The formula is lightweight and absorbs into the skin quickly.
I have used this a few times and personally don’t find that it dries out my blemishes or helps my skin much. But I’m also one of those girls that uses a product and expects to wake up in the morning expecting to see results… Perhaps I need to give it some more love and affection
*Clinique Anti-Blemish Clearing Gel, £20.00 30ml
As an alternative to a clearing lotion, there’s also a clearing gel in the range. The gel helps to prevent new blemishes from returning any time soon. After cleansing, apply a thin layer of the gel to the entire face. Or simply apply to occurring stubborn blemishes.
I love love LOVE this clearing gel! I’ve noticed a massive difference in my skin and the once stubborn blemishes and red patches are no longer making an unwanted appearance. The gel has completely cleared up the red patches and it’s a god send. The lightweight gel dries extremely quickly and doesn’t have an overpowering smell at all
These products of course can be used and bought individually! You can check out the Anti-Blemish range here and once again, thank you so much Clinique!
