Intensively moisturizing gel for 72 hours Moisture Sugre 72-Houre, potent liquid soap for oily skin, cream to care for problem skin Anti-Blemish Solutions Clinical clearing gel.
So, if you want to know about these tools in more detail, ask a cat.
Clinique is a brand I have long had a strong negative attitude. This was largely caused by the abundance of negative or at best mixed reviews in the network, as my personal experience with the brand was very limited. Once upon a time, in the first year of University, I’m wanting to get rid of the inflammations on the face, bought the 3-step care system from Clinique and used it to the end. Why it happened, I can’t remember, I can only say that the rash has not disappeared, but more of them also died. Since then, I never try something from the brand products. Wasn’t trying until this summer. Since I have oily skin prone to inflammation, I am constantly in search of new products. During the fight with the rash I managed to try drugstore remedies, attended beauticians, buy low cost Baltic mash, Korean and Eastern cosmetics. Nothing stuck, because or worsen the skin condition, or, at best, had no effect on the situation. In the end I decided to go back to the Suite, which was used in his student years. Now I found the tools that suit my skin and help maintain it in good condition. Of course, my skin is not in perfect condition, but through this means, I like what I see in the mirror. In this and the next post I will tell about some of these tools.
Cream-gel for problematic skin Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions clinical clearing gel.
I would like to start with this tool because now it is an absolute must-have for a few months. The gel I bought after I saw a link to it on instagram Kim Kardashian (Yes, I sometimes look through her instagram). I was just curious to try a new spot treatment from inflammation and a few days later I bought it. Honestly, nothing special I did not expect, as had rather skeptical towards the brand. But this gel managed to surprise me.
The tool is Packed in a traditional brand of green cardboard box, which is a hard plastic flakonchik beautiful transparent blue color. The box has all the necessary information on the composition and manufacturer. Also in the package is instruction manual in different languages, including Russian.
Cream to care for problem skin Anti-blemish Clinical Clearing gel Silutions
Plastic bottle equipped with a spout through which, when pressed, served medium.
The bottle is quite hard, and when funds is short, it is difficult to squeeze. This is probably the only negative that I can detect.
The gel has a mild fragrancewhich I cannot describe, something between drugstore and cosmetic odor. But to me this fragrance is not irritating, as the skin I don’t feel it.
I’m not going to disassemble the product, as they usually do not do this, as already repeatedly wrote in their posts. More important to me, whether I see results and how my skin reacts to a cosmetic.
Ingredients: alcohol denat., water/aqua/eau, acrylates/c10-30 alryl acrylate cross-polymer, hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel), salicylic acid, laminaria saccharina extract, sea whip extract, butylene glycol, benzalkonium chloride [ILN32303].
Texture tools has nothing to do with cream. This is a real transparent gel which upon solidification forms a very thin film completely invisible on the skin.
The manual says that the gel can be applied all over the face or used locally.Most often I use it as a spot treatment, but sometimes (very rarely) can be applied to the entire face. If you apply too much of gel might be a feeling of tightness, but if you observe the measure of discomfort will not.
Usually I apply the gel overnight or in the second half of the day on cleansed and treated with toner the skin, but if you really want, and apply it under makeup. Noticed that with prolonged use, the tool does not dry the skin or cause peeling like it was from other similar products with aggressive composition.
Result. Of course, inflammation does not pass as a wave of a magic wand, but heal much faster and not take so much trouble as before. Usually, inflammation I held up to seven days, now I see the result, by the end of the second day. If you spread a gel emerging inflammation, it in 90% of cases do not turn into a real zit. For all the time use this tool, I noticed that the inflammation began to appear less and almost not leave marks after healing. Of course, I not only use this medium, and the improvement of the skin is the result of applying multiple tools (other tools against inflammation I will tell in the next post), but this gel really helps me in the fight against imperfections and has become an integral part of care. Even if sometimes I squeeze a pimple, but now it happens very rarely, after using this gel I will not have re-inflamed the embossed portion, as has happened before. The photo shows fresh inflammation and how it looked two days later. Gel used to inflammation one time per day, or the day or the night, depending on my desire.
A fresh inflammation. Daylight. The photo was taken in the morning.So inflammation looked after two days. Natural light. Photo sdelano in the morning.
It is evident that the inflammatory process is stopped, leaving only a trail that already can be masked if necessary, and which will soon disappear entirely. By the way, such a large inflammation of my skin have become rare and appear only on certain days.
Cream gel Anti-Blemish Solutions Clinical clearing gel is available in two formats: 30 and the First 15 ml. of packing volume of 30 ml it took me more than two months. Now I use a bottle with a volume of 15 ml. I use it for two weeks and it took me approximately half with daily use.
To summarize, I can say that the cream-gel for problem skin Anti-Blemish Solutions Clinical Clearing copes with inflammation, helping to make my skin more clean and healthy. Of course, we are all individual and I’m not saying that this tool is a panacea, are equally effective for everyone, but for my skin remedy came completely.

Intensively moisturizing gel for 72 hours Clinique Moisture Surge 72-hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator
This moisturizing gel I bought with a potent liquid soap for oily skin Liquid Facial Soap Oily Skin, so I just wanted to try a light moisturizer from the brand. I love gels and I always try to give them preference in the selection of products for the face. After a failed moisturizing gel from Sephora, I was curious to try a tool with a similar texture.
The gel is Packed in a cardboard box that characterizes the brand green. The box has all the necessary information: country of origin, composition, expiration date, description and recommendations.

The jar containing the gel is made of durable transparent plastic, allowing you to control the amount of gel. Spoon not included, but for me it’s not a problem, as there is a spare spoon.

The product is suitable for all skin types. I really like the texture of the gel. This is a fairly thick gel, pinkish hue. It is more dense than, for example, Pomegranate moisturizing gel from Sephora, but well distributed in the skin.
On the photo you can see the texture.
I paint a vehicle with the help of a special apparatus for the face, because of this it is very quickly absorbed. The gel leaves a sticky film on the face, does not clog pores and not provoke inflammation. After using the skin more smooth and moisturized throughout the day. In addition, I use gel as a base under makeup. Concealer( concealer or powder) placed on the skin more evenly and not slipping.
Despite the fact that I have the gel presented in mini format, it will last for a long time, so in 2.5 months I spent only half of the jars.

I know that many have criticized the brand Clinique in the compositions of funds and say that brand didn’t suit them. I when choosing care guided primarily on the reaction of its own skin and personal feelings. I’m glad I found among the products of the brand, those funds that approached me became my must-havemy. I’m happy to continue getting acquainted with the brand.
Thanks for read my post, I hope you found it interesting.
