My Skin Type || Clinique


Skin is one of the most important things for us women and finding the right products that actually shed results, it's quite difficult. The main reason why getting results seems difficult is only because we purchase items that aren't made for our specific skin type.

You might have read my previous post where I visited my local Clinique counter to better understand my skin type and get help from a professional finding products to improve the problem areas in my skin.

My biggest problem area was my forehead. This has always been a concern due to tiny acne that's on-again off-again. They start showing when I eat anything oily, when I'm a little stressed, when I use hairspray or when I lack sleep. 

As promised, here's my second post where I go into detail about the products I was recommended at my Clinique counter consultation. 


I was recommended 6 products for my oily-to-combination skin. This means my cheeks are comfortable unlike my T-Zone (forehead, nose, chin) which is oily/shiny.

I'm going to start by talking about the essentials, The 3 Step Skin Care which most people know about. These are the Dramatically Different Moisturizing GelLiquid Facial Soap and Clarifying Lotion 3. These 3 steps are different for everyone depending on your skin type. I've been using these products for two weeks now and have seen a dramatic change on my skin. My face feels a lot bouncier and moist (not oily) and the previous shiny areas on my face now feel under control.

I'll admit that I already owned the Moisturizing Gel as it was recommended to me by my mother. We both love how all the products are fragrance free and have been created by dermatologists. I don't have sensitive skin (Thankfully) but my mother does and she swears by Clinique.   

For my dark circles I got the Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector.  
My dark circles are really bad and I need all the help I can get. This formula is light yet affective and I love applying it with my ring finger at night before going to bed. 

A few other products I got were the Pore Refining Solutions Charcoal Mask (favorite!!) and Even Better Skin Tone Correcting Moisturizer. The charcoal mask absorbs all the impurities that are left in your skin thorough the day and the moisturizer is perfect for wearing out as it has SPF.


For makeup I got a foundation in the color 08 Golden Neutral, a bronzer in the color 02 Sunkissed and a nude lipstick in the color 04 Beige Pop. All to fit my skin color and tone preferences.


-When trying new products be consistent. Apply morning and night and give the products time to work.
-Use products that are ideal for your skin type.
-This may sound silly but always wash your hands before applying anything on your face. 
- Wash makeup brushes regularly to prevent any bacterias from breaking you out.
- Always wear a moisturizer with SPF before applying any makeup.
-Remove your makeup, specially mascara before going to bed.
