Today i am going to review on Clinique 3 step skin care for combination to oily skin.
Here is small sample kit from Clinique. This kit has 3 small bottles, Liquid Facial Soap, Clarifying lotion, and a moisturising gel with very sheen clear plastic kit. I really like this plastic kit that i can use to carry my small makeup products while travelling.
The Clinique company claims following:
Step 1: Cleanse
Clinically formulated cleansing—that’s how great skin starts. Clinique’s dermatologists believe soap is best. Our non-drying liquid and bar formulas maintain protective lipids, loosen surface flakes. Prep skin for the exfoliating action of Step 2: Clarifying Lotion.
Step 2: Exfoliate
From day one, expect your skin to look fresher, feel smoother. In two weeks, the rewards become abundantly clear.
Step 3: Moisturizer
The moisture “drink” all skins need, developed by Clinique’s guiding dermatologists to maintain optimal moisture balance. Works to soften, smooth, improve the condition and texture of your skin. Lotion formula is for drier skins; oil-free Gel is perfect for oily skins.
Now comes to my experience with Clinique 3 step skin care, I was desperate to share this experience. As i had drastic skin changes after my delivery. I have very oily and sensitive skin. So i always choose my products very carefully. Previously i was in Mumbai and i was using loreal skin care from last 6 years. I was using their face wash, toner, scrub, even make up products too. But we have been shifted in Pune now, here climate is very dry, so suddenly my skin started reacting due to climate change. After delivery its showing hormonal changes also.
So i tried my loreal products but no effect. I had breakouts, acne started. I was totally depressed because of all these changes on my face. I tried so many products, but still no effect on my skin. Then I heard about Clinique products and i was keep searching these products in Pune. I thought i should give a try to this product also. When i was at Clinique store, the consultation person showed me 3 step care for oily skin. I was already aware about the sample product, so i asked for that. (Shopping Tip: Always remember, before buying expensive products, ask for samples first. Try them, see the results and then buy the bigger bottels. All big brands provide samples of their products.)
I used the first sample for one month. The consultation person of the store told me this product will last for 10 days but i used these products for one month. When i bought the first sample at that time the weather was hot here in pune. It was in October, but suddenly after diwali weather is changed, its first time too much cold in last 5 years. So i decided to try another sample in this weather too ( i thought may be its good in summer, what if not working in winter) So i bought another sample and used that for a month too.
Now I have no more oily skin, no breakouts. Even my open pores are also treated with this product. I found that my skin is so clean and clear day by day. In first week i saw my skin clear, silky and look healthier. I absolutely love this product. This is like miracle product for me. After washing my face first time with the liquid facial soap i feel my skin fresh and very smooth. Then i use their clarifying lotion and moisturising gel.Clinique’s clarifying lotion is nothing but a toner. Believe me while applying gel on my face it doesn’t give me the feeling of those sticky creams. The gel is non greasy, non sticky and gives a cooling effect for few seconds. I would like to tell you all that i like the mild fragrance of the gel also. Now after 1 year, i am very happy that i got my skin back.
Over all its a great and must buy product for those who have sensitive and oil skin.
The only con of this product is the smell of clarifying lotion. Its a alcohol based toner so its smell is very harsh. I have to keep my eyes closed while applying the toner. Other wise it works great on my skin but i think i can skip this clarifying toner for daily use, i can use this on alternate days. This is the only con for this product .
And of course the price is very high but if this is going to save my skin then i can ignore that.
I will definitely recommend Clinique 3 step skin care for combination to oily skin. Yes Yes Yes Yes !!!! A big yes for this product.
Price: INR 500 (for sample pack)
