Clinique 3 Step Skincare Review

Picture used for illustration purpose only

Did you know that you could just go down to any Clinique counter to get a
free skin analysis and also their 3-step sample kit?
Well, I’ve gotten mine and here’s my testimonial.

I do care a lot about my skin and do want to achieve beautiful, clear skin. However, after a long day at work, I am not too motivated to follow through a complicated skincare regime. Thus, I’m grateful for Clinique in making it all so hassle-free with just 3 steps.

I like how the Clinique’s skin care system has a customized range for every skin type. The cleanser is refreshing, an excellent product to start your day with.
However, I find the scent a tad bit too medicinal and strong at times.
But there’s no doubt about it’s cleansing capabilities.

I’m also impressed to find that there are a total of 8 types of toners. The Clarifying Lotion 3 did not work for me but I was glad to find an alternative; the Clarifying Moisturize Lotion 3 version, which was much gentler. CL2 stung my skin real bad and I’ve been reading forums, some say it’s normal to sting a little.
However, for me, it was so painful and too much. I think I’ll stick to the CML version. The toner would be my favorite product of the lot!

The Dramatically Different Moisturizer did not disappoint as well.
It was lightweight and quickly absorbed upon application.
Once again, I’m not a fan of the scent. Really smelled medicinal to me.

Anyway, there were no negative results from using the 3-step system.
No breakouts or purging! Phew!
It seems to be working fine on me :)
I find that my skin is clearer and even makeup stays on longer too.
I am able to stay fresh-faced the whole day.

Rated: .5
(Minus 1.5 stars for the scent)

BUT I LOST MY MOBILE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Photobucket

Life is somewhat ironic….
I came home with FREE skincare items totaling up to $319.
But I lost my mobile phone in the ladies toilet of Takashimaya Level 2, beside Watsons. I know chances are slim but if anyone has taken my SE G705 in Black, PLEASE RETURN IT TO ME!!! :(

Clinique 3 Step Skincare Review

Ok, I know I’m a self-confessed DRUGSTORE beauty junkie.
But as much as counter SAs intimidate me…
And well, there’s always a first time for everything, right?

Furthermore, I would be getting free samples to try out the much
raved about Clinique 3 step regime.
So why not?

Go to Clinique 3 Step
Click on Personal Consultation, do the mini quiz and find out
your skin type.
Then print that page out and present it at any Clinique counter to redeem your customized samples.

Just to share some more on Clinique…

I was recommended the clinique moisturizing lotion 2 as it does not contain alcohol.
But they ran out of the customized kit that carried the 1-2-3 samples that suited my
skin type.

So I was given both clinique moisturizing lotion 2 and clinique lotion 2.
Clinique lotion 2 contains alcohol and the moment I tried it.

It stung my face so bad, I threw out the rest of the samples.
It felt like as though I was rubbing salt onto an open wound. :(
And I have normal-combi skin and yet, I could not take the amount of alcohol in the CL2!

Gosh, so I suggest you stay clear of CL2 unless you have skin as thick as an elephant’s hide.
