Skincare Routine Autumn 2013

Throughout the years I have tried various different skincare products in order to develop a stable skincare routine. I am currently trying out Clinique's 3 step skincare system so I thought I would share my thoughts on these products. The routine states you must use these products for three minutes, twice a day. So it can be used as your morning and evening routine.
Please take into consideration that I have Dry to Combination Skin, especially in the colder months, so these products not specifically work on you and cater for your skin type.
As always I will leave the links for the products below!

The facial soap comes in three options, Very Mild, Mild and Oily. As I said before, I have Dry to Combination skin so I went for the Mild option. The product itself is fairly simple to use in the fact that is a cleanser so all you need to do is massage it into your skin with your hands and then rinse with tepid water to simply remove any dirt from your pores!
The consistency of the product is thin but lathers up like soap. I also found that despite labelling the product is fragrance free, I detected a slight smell of cucumber and mint, not that I'm complaining as it really does smell fresh and clean! I really do recommend this product for those who find they're skin is left feeling tight and dry after cleansing as this product does neither of those!

The Clarifying Lotion is said to deflake skin to create a smooth surface. When applied, the formula leaves your skin tingling, don't worry, that's a good sign!  One thing I must point out about this product is that it should not be used on open wounds or sensitive skin as instead of tingling it will sting and irritate your skin further. The aim of this product is to remove any dead skin from your face after cleansing.

The third and final step in this process is to hydrate the skin using a moisturiser. The formula of this product is great as it does not leave my skin feeling greasy as many moisturisers do. Another great thing about this product is that it contains Hyaluronic Acid which actually allows the skin to retain the moisture!


Much Love
