Clinique Free Gift Event Mini Haul

29 May

Hi Meebsies,

I’m going to go off the Hong Kong Trip track for just a second because I made a pretty awesome discovery. You guys may know that I love Clinique products. ^^ Yesterday, I was at the mall and decided to pick up a bottle of clarifying lotion because I was running low. I then went on to discover that at Nordstrom Clinique is having a free gift event. If you spend $30 at Clinique, they will give you a free gift. WHOOT!!! FREE GIFT!!! ^O^

Personally, I love their free gifts because it has samples of their new line of products. It’s a great way to try out their stuff before you decide to invest. ^^ The event is still going on. I believe it ends June 10th.

Super Mini Haul. Since, I only needed a bottle of clarifying lotion I didn’t really want to spend for the sake of spending. I did pick up a post blemish formula. I’ve always had a problem with scars because of blemishes.  This is suppose to fade the appearance of scars. I guess I will have to try it out. ^^

They give you a really cute makeup bag along with…

– Liquid Facial Soap Mild

– Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion

– All About Eyes Serum De- Puffing Eye Massage

– Clinique  Color Pallete

– High Impact Mascara

– Long Last Lipstick

– Long Last Glosswear SPF 15

Clinique Color Pallete

Bamboo Pink  Long Last Lip Stick

Happy Shopping! >.<

Much Love,

Meebs

December Favorites

3 Dec

Hey Meebsies,

I thought it would be nice to talk about December favorites since the holidays are coming up. A few weeks ago I purchased some Clinique products from Macy because with the cold Winter weather, I have been breaking out a lot more often for some reason. They were actually having a promotion! ^O^ WOOT! Apparently if you spent $50, they gave you a makeup bag full of goodies for free. I think I got a pretty good haul

.

I actually bought some makeup along with the facial products. I just haven’t had a chance to try them out yet.

Clinique has a line specifically targeted towards acne prone skin called, Acne Solutions. It kind of reminds me of Proactive with the three different steps. If you have used Proactive it is essentially the same idea.

Step 1: Cleansing Foam – I found this product really effective. After using it for two weeks my skin cleared up pretty nicely. The only downside was how dry it left my skin afterwards. I’ve noticed that a lot of acne cleansing products tends to dry out skin. However, if you apply moisturizer afterwards the dryness seemed to go away. The foam was not as dense as I would have hoped. When I rubbed it into my skin it stayed foamy for maybe 10 seconds before turning into liquid.

Step 2: Clarifying Lotion – This toner was not my favorite. It was really drying on the skin and it had a very strong alcohol smell. I would actually recommend using a different brand of toner, but I don’t know if switching from the Acne Solution line would mess with the results. I just felt that with the face wash drying my skin, I didn’t want to use a toner which only dried it even more.

Step 3: Clearing Moisturizer – This moisturizer was pretty good. It was not as moisturizing as I would have hoped, but it was passable. It did not more leave my skin oily and was very light. I could not tell if my skin was drinking up the moisturizer at record speed or if I was not putting on enough.

In all I thought that this line was not bad at all. Even though it did dry my skin a little, it was nothing a little moisturizer couldn’t solve. I did find that my skin improved, and I broke out less after using it. All the products were scentless and quite affordable. I brought mine from Macy’s but I have heard that when ordering Clinique products online you get a lot of good deals. I guess the only downside would be having to pay for shipping and waiting. I hate waiting. >.< My friend has actually been using this line for awhile now and she says the products last 3-4 months; so even if it is a little expensive it will last you a good while. Please remember that this is all from personal review and the results could be different for different people.

Along with the daily washing line, I also bought the Cleansing Mask. I absolutely love this product. Whenever I feel like I am going to break out. I use this at night before I go to sleep. Once I wake up, no blemishes! It’s like magic. (*´▽`*)I also noticed it helps with removing black heads.

The Moisturizer Surge Face Spray was recommended by one of my friends who travels a lot. She said that when she was on the plane her skin tended to dry out. This product is not only extremely to useful, but portable as well. The original bottle is quite large, but you can pour some into a little travel size spray bottle to put in your purse. Because of the cold weather I use this to moisturize my face, but I have heard that during the summer time this spray has a cooling effect. (´ー`) I definitely recommend this product. It is so light and moisturizing. Even though it says facial spray, I’ve been spraying it on my arms and legs after the shower. It leave them so smooth and soft afterwards. I couldn’t help myself.

Since the Acne Solution line is a little drying I have been using this Cetaphil moisturizer in addition to the Clearing Moisturizer. My sisters actually recommended this product to me. It is oil free, hypoallergenic, and contains SPF 15. I love this product! It is a little expensive, but so worth it. It does not make my skin greasy, moisturizes it, and actually makes foundation glide on my skin better. Cetephil was suppose to be designed for people with eczema so if you have redness or rashes, it helps reduce it.

I know this was a lengthy post, so thank you for reading! Even though I stated this before,please remember this is all from personal experience. You may not have the same results as me. On another note, I had an amazing day today. I got to eat Pho and hang out with one of my good girlfriends. Mmm… Pho… It was so funny because all my friends were white (not being racist) and I was the only Asian. We thought it would be funny if they all ate with chopsticks while I ate with a fork. I wish I took a picture of our waiters face when he saw us.  ( ´∀`) I hope you guys had an amazing day too!

Love XOXO
