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)
