The older I get the more I realize how important my skin in. I would be the first to admit that in my younger years I laid in the sun without sunscreen, sometimes with baby oil (yikes!) sometimes didn’t wash my face or use any cleansers/moisturizers but times have changed and with the accessibility of the internet I can research and read reviews on any product before having to spend any money. We each get one set of skin and we should make sure we take care of it!
There is such a range of skincare it sometimes feels like an impossible task to choose the right combination for your skin type. Use your resources and always try a skincare first before investing a ton of money. I personally will always start off with a travel size version to make sure my skin doesn’t have a negative reaction before I spend invest in a line. Also keep in mind trying a skincare for one or two nights is not viable either. You must use it for at least a couple weeks in order for your skin to acclimate.
I I first started using this clinique set back in the summer and wanted to try it for at least a couple months before I gave a review on it, and I am really impressed with this line. Clinique is dermatologist tested and has great reviews online. They have a variety of options depending on your skin type (dry/combination/normal) and you can mix and match depending on what your skin. I started with this $26 travel size kit (here) (also please keep in mind I have dry/combination skin)and I am now buying this $46 kit (here) and as you can tell from the price it is extremely reasonable. I am also a big fan of buying kits, my reasoning being that they are formulated and crafted to work best together!
Step1: Liquid Facial Mild Soap
I love this cleanser it is gentle, foamy and I get that clean sensation when I am finished washing my face. I use it every morning and night after I have taken off my makeup!
Step 2: Clarifying Lotion
This is probably my favourite product in this kit. It removes dead skin cells and leaves your skin feeling cool and refreshed. If I have worn lots of makeup that day I will usually also use this product in the morning and at night.
Step 3: Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion
This is one of the best moisturizers I have ever used. It leaves my skin hydrating and smooth without being oily or too heavy. I use this every morning before I apply makeup and at night before I go to bed!
I hope you enjoyed! Remember do your homework, and find the best skincare that works for your skin! xo
