Clinique Anti Blemish Solutions 3 Step System
Firstly, I'd like to apologise for the lack of updates the past week! However if you are in or have been in your third year of uni you'd understand why, and I have just took on an internship so I am a busy bee of late.
Anywhoo, I wanted to share with you lovelies my newest skincare routine. Now the past few years I have become familiar with Clinique because of my mom preferring it as her skincare of choice. I had been looking through their products when she had asked for a few items to be re-stocked for Christmas, which is then when I found out about their anti-blemish three step system and I knew immediately I wanted to try this out.
So come Christmas I got my hands on this and as you can see in the photos I now own the full sized products of the three products. However I shall talk about the starter kit because I think it is a great way of becoming familiar with the brand if you don't want to fork out on the full sized products.
As titled the set is a three step system consisting of: cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise. Within the set you get a 50ml size of the Clarifying Foam, 100ml Clarifying Lotion and 30ml of Clearing Moisturiser. These are not only fab sample sizes but they are also perfect for travel, I knew after the first couple of uses that I fell in love with these products.
They are slightly expensive but I think they are worth every penny, I use the three combined with their 7 Day Scrub and have noticed an improvement in my skin. I won't lie and say it completely changes your skin overnight because I do still get the odd breakout but I do find that it is helping my skin overtime. Spot and redness wise I find my breakouts aren't as frequent as they used to be, and when they are, they are gone quicker which is perfect. Secondly I have found that my skin is less oily than what it used to be which is a fab positive for me, considering I have suffered with oily skin since I was a young teen.
You begin with the foam on clear skin which is aimed at cleaning any excess dirt and oil from your face, whilst unclogging pores and reducing redness. Once that step is complete you then go onto the lotion which does the same as above while exfoliates the skin and removes dead skin particles. Lastly is the moisturiser which as you guessed helps reduce pores and redness.
The three step system retails at £30 which works out at about £10 per bottle and I think this is a fab kit to try out especially if you do suffer from oily skin. I think overall the lasting effects are fabulous, but it is something you have to give time as it won't work miracles straight away.
I am now a Clinique addict.
