Skin Care Review: Clinique 3 step system

by alison

Adverse Effects

None at all that I can think of

Effect it had on skin, cost

Like many of my friends, after leaving school I was sucked into Clinique's marketing machine - a simple three minute three step path to perfect skin. How wrong could I be? After using the stuff for a month my face was red, blotchy and felt as if it had been exposed to the sun for too long. The service at Clinique was terrible, not only did they omit to tell me i was within my rights to return the goods if i wasnt happy, but they told me that I should expect my skin to act like this on using a new product. The soap I feel dried out my sensitive skin but apart from that didnt do much else, the "dramatically different" moisturiser was barely thick enough to make any impact on my dry skin, certainly not enough of an impact to warrent the price I paid for it, but the most awful part of the routine had to be the Clarifying lotion (I was sold number 2) which felt like dousing the skin with acid on each application. Consequently I had blown loads of money will never ever use these products on my super sensitive face again.

Do your skin and your wallet a favour and keep clear.
