Clinique launch Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly

There are a lot of gels and jelly formulas appearing at the moment, none as big a launch as this new Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly. Dramatically different from the original Dramatically Different Lotion indeed - in that it's a jelly. And not yellow! So, why? That was my first question.  I'm not sure. Perhaps to add a new dimension to the three-step for younger customers? It's an oil-free water jelly, for all skin types. It's BIG on … [Read more...]

Clinique launch new High Impact mascara

The quest for beautiful, long, lush, curly, voluminous, thick eyelashes is real! There's a new Clinique mascara out this week which was inspired by a Latin American trend where women were using spoons to get a continuous, arched curl in their lashes! I have just spent the last 15 minutes watching videos of women curling their lashes with a spoon - and I am amazed, and a little queasy (I'm very squeamish). Wow. Where have I been? I did not know … [Read more...]

New sun care from Clinique

Clinique launch two new sun care products this month - one body, one face, both high protection. The SPF30 Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream is more of a skincare than sun care product, and the SPF30 Virtu-Oil Body Mist is already one I am looking forward to using. So, lets start with that one. The new SPF30 Virtu-Oil Body Mist (£25) - it's a bit of a name, I know - is sun protection made easy. It has the same feel of a dry body oil, in a lightweight, … [Read more...]

Clinique launch Moisture Surge Concentrate

Clinique add a new addition to their hugely popular Moisture Surge range this month - the Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate. I mistakenly thought it was a serum but it's a moisturiser in its own right. I love the Moisture Surge range, but I don't love this offering as much. Probably because it's oil-free, and although it does deliver the moisture, and my skin doesn't feel tight, I just don't like how it feels upon application. I … [Read more...]

Clinique’s new Superbalanced Foundation

Clinique have just launched another new foundation, called Superbalanced. I've probably tried pretty much all of Clinique's foundations over the years, and liked some more than others. I don't generally use Clinique bases these days, but I gave this one a go for this review, and it's pretty decent. The idea of it is that it 'balances it all' in terms of makeup. So, it feels weightless on your skin, but gives perfect cover,controls oil, but … [Read more...]

Pep-Start your Day with Clinique

Earlier this year, Clinique launched their Pep-Start Eye Cream. In zesty orange packaging, it was quite a departure from the clinical Clinique look. I did wonder if there was more to come, and here it is - the rest of the Pep-Start range. In bold, bright packaging, this skincare is more generic, and less targeted than some, and is, I assume, aimed at a younger customer. It's what brands do when they are looking to bring newbies to them! Once in, … [Read more...]

Go Pop with Clinique!

Clinique have launched two more 'Pop' products this month - the Pop Lacquer Lip Colour + Primer, and the Clinique Lid Pop. The Lid Pop is almost too beautiful to use, and will end up in the drawer in my house, alngside the Cheek Pop I have never used! The Lid Pop is a beautiful floral moulded eye colour, that comes in eight pretty shades. This one is a pale, shimmery, nude/pink called Petal Pop. The formula is silky and long-wearing, and is … [Read more...]

Get a Pep-Start with Clinique

Clinique's new eye cream, Pep Start, has launched with a heavy social media campaign, and its very own hashtag - #imin. Are you in? The new eye cream contains a blend of seven peptides (hence the name) to help maintain collagen that can be threatened by stress, fatigue and lack of sleep - the tell-tale signs of a busy life! This little bright orange tube contains a cream that, according to Clinique, will help eyes look vibrant, refreshed … [Read more...]

Let's start with the revamped,and repackaged Clinique Turnaround Revitalizing Instant Facial (£35). (There will be more on the Turnaround range later this week.) So, to the mask. It's a five minute pampering mask which combines physical and manual exfoliation to help reveal renewed, energised, and more … [Read more...]
