I have never bought any expensive cosmetics or skin care products. A friend of mine is using Clinique products constantly and she seems to have soft and healthy skin most of the time. Thus, I thought, why not give it a try. I got a voucher for a perfume store for my birthday and decided to spend it on a Clinique 3-Step test box.
After deciding on my type of skin with the help of the skin diagnostic tool on the Clinique website, I went into the store and got myself the package. I was a bit disappointed about the size of the box. The bottles and tubes were really tiny and I thought for the price, they could have been bigger since they were obviously not going to last for long…
So, here is what the 3 steps include:
Step 1: Cleanse
You pour water into your face and rub the liquid facial soap onto your skin. After a short period of time, you use warm water to clean your face. Always pay attention to not apply the soap into your eyes.
Step 2: Exfoliate
After drying your face, you pour some of the lotion onto a cotton pad and spread it all over your face.
In the end, rub the moisturizing cream into your skin to make it soft and shiny
After using these three products for almost 2 weeks now, I can tell that it really does make a difference. In the beginning, I had a few tiny pimples but I guess that this just happened because my skin was not used to these products.
Now, my skin looks much healthier and feels much softer. I like touching my skin again and especially problem zones like my nose and forehead which used to be extremely dry all the time look and feel much nicer than before.
Also, even though I thought the containers were too small in the beginning, I can now say that you only need tiny portions of each product so that even these tiny bottles will last very long. Compared to other, cheaper, products that do not last very long, the price difference is not that bad anymore!
The only thing to really complain about is probably the moisturizing lotion because of the little bottle it comes with. The bottle is not soft and that makes it really hard to squeeze the lotion out of the bottle. Shaking it beforehand makes it a bit easier but it already happened to me that afterwards, I had too much lotion on my hand which was a bit of a waste.
Other than that there is nothing to complain about and I am sure I will go on using these three great products.
