What we say:
I have long been a Clinique fan, however I took a break from it a year ago as I had been using it for 3 years and thought my skin needed a break from it. In the year since I stopped using it, I have used several popular skincare brands in various price brackets, yet none of them have worked quite as well as Clinique.
In the last couple of months my skin took a down turn, and rather than the occasional hormone-caused breakout, I was breaking out a lot more often and the blemishes were far worse. For someone who has never had particularly bad skin, I was not happy with the mass breakout on my chin and around my mouth area!
I had read good reviews on the Clinique Anti-Blemish range, and decided to give it a go. Thankfully Clinique offers a Starter Kit for R475, which includes a trial size product of the 3-step system, and is a great way to try the products without investing in full size products.
The cleansing foam has quite a strong medicinal smell, which is something that I am still getting used to. As promised, after 3 days of using the 3-step system, the existing blemishes I had were starting to dry up and no new blemishes had come up.
My skin does feel a bit tight after using the cleansing foam, but once I have used the clarifying toner & the moisturiser, the tightness goes away. A week & a half into using the 3-step cleansing system, and I am super happy with the results. While my skin is slightly drier in places than it usually is, the blemishes are under control and hopefully will disappear altogether (fingers crossed).
If your skin is prone to blemishes, the Clinique Anti-Blemish range is definitely one to consider. While it is pricey, it is definitely worth the splurge.
